Mmmm, burger

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

We decided to go for lunch today at my sister’s pub, the Plume of Feathers at Harley (website, map).

The mushrooms with beef tomato and brie was fabulous, the garlic bread was THE best garlic bread on the face of the planet, the burger was … epic … and the chips weren’t cut, they were hewn from giant potatoes.

As anyone who has met me in person will no doubt have gathered, I like my food and this was one of the best meals I’ve had for as long as I can remember.

The picture quality doesn’t do it justice but you can at least get an idea of the size of the burger – this is on a large dinner plate, at least 12″ in diameter.

    i thought you were on a diet?

    i’m on a diet now too, god it’s depressing it is almost as bad as school dinners were, i think it is easier to diet in summer time, when the seductive moanings of bits of dead animal fried in dead animal juice are not so appealing

    If it’s the best meal you can remember having in a long time, you can go out to eat every night. I won’t be slaving over a hot cooker to get your meals ready every night when you get in from work!!!

    I meant it was the best meal out that I’d had for as long as I remember. Obviously it pales into comparison to your culinary skills. Please keep feeding me!

    How is the diet going? The sizometer has vanished from the site!

    I lost about 2 and a half stone in total. Just maintaining at the moment and I’ll diet again later in the year.

    Your photo looks like a mess of oozing snot and puss!

    now your diet has stopped, are you still eating carefully?

    I must admit it doesn’t look particularly appetising in the picture but it’s a mobile phone picture in low light from pretty close up.

    mmmmmmmmmmmm, bits of pre chewed dead animal, cooked in dead animal juice, it look delicious a lot better than my low fat breakfast porridge :((

    Do you have to pay your own advertising fee?! That looks like a cat sick covered turd in a meringue!!

    I had one the other day, just so I could take a decent picture of course. Will have to get it off my phone at some point.
