Default What did you have for Supper?

Or Dinner as they say in London or Tea as we say 'up north'

I had a veg samosa, onion bhaji, chicken jalfrazi and lamb bhuna with 3 chappatis, a glass of Volmond Swiss Beer and now to finish off, a glass of Grouse and dry ginger over ice.

TGI Friday


ps, might have another Grouse soon

pps, yes we cooked it ourselves, but used shop bought starters

I thought about that..........but I wasn't sure how to handle it???

I look forwards to seeing a full response in around 4 or 5 hours?

I had a Bacon Double Cheeseburger myself only 3 days ago. After Morgon Spurlock, I limit my McDelights to one or two per week, unless I am on vacation in the USA, and then it is almost a daily ritual. The McD's in the USA are gourmet class.

Well, maybe not all McD's, but there are Gourmet Class McD's in the USA. I guess they are in tourist areas like Rat Town etc.

I have had some top Mexican food at McD's, Fajitas, Chimechangas, and top sandwiches, grilled club, subs, etc. The one I am thinking about is on Sandlake Road in Orlando, supposed to be the biggest in the world. It has a regular line where you place an order, and you pick up your regular items on payment and get one of those vibratin' doo hickeys and then wait for your gourmet order to be ready at the special collection point where it is brought to you by the short order chef

I just cooked a huge pot of Putanesca sauce for spaghetti... with fresh parsley and thyme from my terrace... hooray for the mild winter!

Goes down well with a bottle of Murauer Beer, a small private brewery in Styria, Austria.

McDonald's is the devil!

I certainly know what it means... and I know the legend behind the recipe...

Those ladies were always in a hurry, so they had to fix their dinner quickly.

Hehe, I guess that's true.

BTW: I got the recipe for Putanesca from my favorite children's book series: A Series of Unfortunate Events (yes, I read Harry Potter, too).

Breast……………………………Chicken I mean.

I’m getting hungry just smelling the cooking, soon come I guess.

My life partner makes sauté chicken breasts in virgin olive oil, garlic, etc, then slices it ever so slightly to the appropriate size and serves with an array of killer dips and vegetables. Dips are like: sweet & sour, curry mustard, sesame, etc…



I’m done, absolutely delicious! I used a West Indian picante soy dip (scotch bonnet & soy sauce mixture), and a sweet Italian picante dip. She outdid herself, all home made.

I plan to eat some form of frozen meal on a tray. I'll heat it up first, of course. Not making THAT mistake again...

Lol Dessert is called 'afters' in the north and also 'Pudding' in more middle class northern homes.

Supper is what we have in late evening, just before bedtime, we have Tea as our main meal after coming home from work or school. I used Supper as I though this would translate better with our North American friends.

Just goes to show, it's all in the word

Yea, its fascinating seeing how words differ from country to country.

With supper i think it depends on how you eat...

If you have Dessert straight after Dinner then supper would i think be the before bed time snack, but if you dont supper would be dessert.

Ok, here is how it breaks down by meal in England

Northern English

Breakfast
Dinner, at midday
Tea, home from work, usually around 6.00pm
Supper, at bedtime, usually a hot drink and a biscuit or bun

Posh English

Breakfast
Elevenses, mid morning snack
Lunch, at midday
Afternoon Tea, at 3.00pm to 4.00pm, small sandwiches and scones
Dinner, at late evening, after say 7.00pm, later is more fashionable

Some more odd words

A walkway or narrow gap between houses or buildings, we call either a snicket or a ginnel

Omg, I am now railroading my own topic
