I wish!

There was a time when I was as thin as a thin stick, I could eat a Sunday dinner (belly pork done to a crisp) and then make myself beans on toast (and still be hungry) which would do my mam's head in. Now I only have to read something like your post on pork, and I put on two stone!!

I do think though, even in these PC days, that the occasional dabble with full fat (anything) doesn't do any harm.

Dave actually if you don?t eat the crackling pork is very lean meat, I would rather sit down at well laid table and have a good meal with a glass of chilled Chablis.Than go to the likes of McDonald?s which to be honest would a much higher fat content?.
This is dinner tonight:
Tender duck breast lightly pan fried and severed with a tangy cherry sauce made with fresh and dried soured cherries, a good splash of cherry brandy and left to slowly reduce. Severed with buttered streamed asparagus, fresh steamed broccoli spears, oven roasted fennel with herbs and buttered Jersey royal baby potatoes with mint.
As for pudding homemade waffles topped with homemade sticky toffee sauce, cinnamon and best quality organic vanilla ice cream yummy!!
Oh and to drink I think a nice Shiraz.

I prefer to eat out in a nice restaurant. Life is far too short and I am far to busy for cooking.

I like to go out as well, but sometimes you just have to cook for yourself.
I am also extremely fussy about the quality of food?

For the best scratchings, try KVE from Tipton.
They take ages to chew.
I once had one on the go for hours, in the end I had to give it to the dog to finish off.

Then again, sometimes you get one that's all fat, and it just melts in your mouth.
