Say what you may about Aldi....I dip in there for bags of fresh salad (50p each) some cold cuts such as pastrami and some coleslaw...absolute winner!
on a side note they sell heavy bags of 'knock off' gourmet jelly beans for 70p and they are AMAZING!
What? No one eating :spam1:?
Pig-pie and a couple of Mr Kiplings fruit things. Coleslaw and an apple as a tip to "healthy eating".
All this is OT, as (most) of it sounds quite appetising. Not sure about snot-noodles though!:puke:
The worse sandwich I've ever had was made by the girl I was living with at the time - she asked me what I'd like for lunch at work and I said I quite fancied a corned beef sarnie.
I got what I asked for - when I opened my lunch box the next day there it was in all its glory. The problem was she hadn't used sliced corned beef - she gone and bought a tin of it, opened it and put the whole thing in one great block between two slices of white bread. And did I mention the tomato sauce? I hadn't asked for tomato sauce but there was enough to float a boat. My work colleagues thought it was hilarious.
And did I eat it? Yes and I've hated corned beef ever since.
Two words - Little Chef.
Also round where I live there is a cafe (or caff) that serves scrambled egg by breaking the eggs over bread and then microwaving it for 10 mins, and the 2 sausages are 1 sausage cut in half. Strangely it is always busy.
The absolute worse meal I've ever had was in N Yorks near Richmond where en-route to Whitby my good lady wife and I pulled over to a small village pub and ordered lunch. I asked for a Cumberland ring with chips and peas. What actually arrived was an unspeakable horror that looked like a dog had gone to the toilet on the plate, peas that had been left to dessicate under a heat lamp and chips that were not quite cooked. It was that bad that Jane actually burst out laughing at it when it arrived. Since then I've never been in a Pubmaster pub (whos chain it was a part of). I've been to wars that had better catering!
I have a chip shop near home which sells spam fritters. They look unsightly like a large square of odd coloured batter but you bit into them and sooooooo good. Knocks a few years off your life though.
Ironically I just had a very dire lunch, Steak and Cheese panini from BP Garage. It's like biting into concrete and rubber at the same time.
Had a nice lunch :)
nightmare lunch for me is anywhere that microwaves a jacket potato, and follows by doing likewise with your apple pie!!
Lunch was what my mum packed for me, she enjoys cooking and making lunches so makes both mine and my dads every day :) So it was ham sandwiches, home grown tomatoes, crisps, pineapple, fruity cerial bar thingy, chocolate hob nobs and then had Flapjack at break time from the tray bake in the staff room :) So was not a bad day. May have to pay a visit to the canteene on Monday for extra sustinance and order a bacon butty or two :)
