7/365 Mr Man’s

Mr Man's

https://flic.kr/p/Qrq9dG We’ve had some lovely meals at Mr Man’s in Wollaton, and we were very lucky to be invited for another meal there today. It’s my Dad’s and Step-mum’s anniversary, and they were also meeting up with some family friends too. Ruby particularly enjoyed the wanton soup for starters, and the rest of the set…… Continue reading 7/365 Mr Man’s

Return of the pie

We’ve been eating mostly healthy food over the last several months and so a previous staple of my diet has mostly disappeared: pies.

I love pies – savoury or sweet. They’re the pinnacle of pastry-topped food and I love them. I just haven’t been eating them very much recently.

However, I managed to revisit Pie Heaven today during a visit to the rather excellent Bottle Kiln.

Cancer – good for your stats

Cancer is a horrible, horrible disease but it seems that one recent cancer-related news story has driven a considerable amount of extra traffic here. It was announced on Tuesday that Jade Goody has cervical cancer. This is a sad state of affairs even if I do think that Jade makes a pretty worthless “celebrity”. It’s…… Continue reading Cancer – good for your stats

Yo! Sushi

Jo and I decided to spoil ourselves for lunch today so we headed into town to sample to culinary delights of Yo! Sushi. Jo is a big fan of the uncooked fish and I’ve really enjoyed the few bits and pieces of sushi that I’ve sampled before. You can order individual cooked dishes if you…… Continue reading Yo! Sushi

World Service

I can’t think of many more pleasurable experiences while keeping your clothes on. Thankfully I can cook, as long as I have a…… Continue reading World Service

Sad Davey

Sad Davey – Day 11 Originally uploaded by rutty. Christmas is over and I’m back at work today. That isn’t the saddening thing for me, but the fact that I’ve had to leave my girlfriend to travel back to Nottingham is. It’s been great seeing her over the festive season and a bit of a…… Continue reading Sad Davey

Alan ate all the pie

There was no pie for me this lunchtime, much to my disappointment. Wednesday is the busy day at the New Venture Social Club as it’s roast day and the place is usually swarming with the retired and hungry (often both together) and we were about five minutes later than usual. I could see the pie-level…… Continue reading Alan ate all the pie

Meat is good

I like meat. Meat is tasty and is in no way contributing to any increased risk of cancer, hypertension or any other medical problems that may reduce my lifespan. I ate a bacon and mushroom ciabatta for my breakfast, with sweet chilli and cheese. It was delicious and I don’t really give a shit if…… Continue reading Meat is good
