    Tonight we’re having pan fried sea bass, mashed potato and roasted Mediterranean veg using up a variety of vegetables that were in the fridge.....tomatoes, peppers, courgette, mushrooms and onion.

    Yes us too.
    Even better, it was half price in Sainsbury’s because it had to today’s “use by” on it. Bought 3 and put two in the freezer.

    Youngests favourite - Tuna pasta bake. Being the fat buggers that we are, all was consumed, none left for tomorrow nights tea.
    I don't half feel sick right now.
    And I will never be a size 12, ever again.

    Takeaway from Neway Chinese at Weeping Cross. First time we've tried this place and it's really rather good. Will use them again when we can't get to Essence of Orient.

    We use it as our local ... live round the corner so saves us a trip across town or waiting for a delivery. EoO is good as well but haven’t been to see Tony for a good while now.
    It is good, very authentic and I should know as I lived in Hong Kong for 23 years.
    What did you have?

    Having lived in Hong Kong for all of those years @acpoynton, are there any dishes that you would recommend as more authentic?

    I particularly love crispy chicken in Peking sauce (capital sauce in some places), I love the hot, sweet sour combination. I love chillies and garlic.... any suggestions orlther than our usual Peking, or chilli & garlic chicken, or Mongolian beef?

    Toad in the hole, and some of Aldi's Vinho Verde which is much nicer than expected.

    Aldi wines are quite often delicious and they’ve won lots of awards for them. Good value too.

    Yep, Aldi have some cracking everyday wines at very good prices. Just don't ever be tempted by the Baron red.
