We were going to have slow cooker chicken stuff, however it does help if you make sure someone else hasn't unplugged the slow cooker when you turn it on as your leaving the house in the morning Not quite sure what to do with it now

Its either a Indian, Chinese or Earls. My vote is the Indian as I like to pop into Earls on late on Wednesday afternoons to partake in their cheap beer and chicken wings.

Edited to note: We ended up getting Nando's Portuguese-Mozambican Chicken. It was not bad.

Not had that in a while now. We had sockeye; I fried it and we ate it with some veggies. The salmon here is rather good isn't it?

This evening I cooked a Kedgeree. OK I know that technically it's a breakfast dish but we've always had it as a main meal. It went down a treat.

Thai Basil do a decent take-out just round the corner from Stephos, on Thurlow.

I'm having Butternut Squash soup and posh bread tonight. To be honest it looks a bit shit.

I'm going to have a few people over for a bit celebration soon and I trying plan the food but I'm bit stuck on the sandwich front. As of now I can only think of egg and cress and ham and mustard. Any decent suggestions? I don't want any poncy ones or the Canadian salady ones where they drown everything in Miracle Whip.
