Somewhere in this thread, umpty-odd pages back, you'll find my recipe for Burritos of Doom. I'll be making them again this weekend...

It looks a bit heavy on the chillies!

I'd say cut down on the tomato. :haha:

Talking of tomato, I made a pretend pizza today. I toasted four slices of thick-sliced bread, then liberally spread a tin of chopped tomatoes on top of them, mixing in some chopped coriander (my own home-grown). I then broke up the remainder of my Mozzarella onto the tomato, and grated some Emmental over it all, topping it off with mushrooms. I forgot to mention that some pepper was ground over the top as well. It really was a nice pretend pizza.

The Meal Deal from the office shop:

£3 gets you a boring sandwich, fresh orange juice and a piece of fruit or a bag of crisps...

...except they've never got any fruit or juice!!!!!! :furious:

Apart from the noodles (from a packet) all home made.

Had a great salad last night, consisting of cherry tomatoes, celery, leaves (various types), and cucumber. And boiled new potatoes. This was garnished with lots of chorizo.

I ask because I am married to an Irish woman, and that's the sort of thing she does. That and cabbage in everything.

Well, my dad's side of the family are descended from the Picts at some point far back in the mists of time, so i'd hazard a guess at Irish being in there somewhere. In my defence, potatoes are a vegetable by definition, so can go into a salad, and I did use the word "garnish" in relation to the meat. This is my story, anyway. :haha:

"Irish salads," you say...

When I lived in Wiscahhhhhhhnsin, I chose to judge a chili cook-off when it was my department's turn to more or less host a potluck at one company. I was quite amazed to see what passed for "chili" in Wiscahhhhhhhnsin: sometimes ground beef and sometimes beans and sometimes tomato-based sauces. But after that, all bets were off...

Most submissions were inexplicably festooned with spaghetti noodles, and/or elbow macaroni, and/or rice. White rice. Most had one or two cans of whole kernel corn egregiously floating around in them, along with other assorted mixed vegetables such as one might find in a proper beef stew. Is that...french cut green beans...and ruffle-cut carrot disks? And, oh god please no, at least one had cabbage sliced into sauer krautesque strings. My initial general confusion was met with general confusion. All these nice people honestly thought they were making chili... just like their ancestors did back in the Bavarian Alps, I guess...

You know, I never really got the hang of Wiscahhhhhhhnsin food. :haha:

I just ate a rotisserie chicken leg (with skin), a small peach, and some "fruit punch" prepared from a mix. It was less than 400 calories, but I feel uncomfortably full.

I make potato salad my son-in-law has dubbed "man salad".
Potatoes [chunky cubed], chopped boiled eggs, diced bacon, onions, mayo and mustard, with some gherkin [or capers] the main ingredients. Must be OK coz I get regular requests for it.
