Will not eat...

Celery
Broad Beans

Small pieces of meat with the bone still on in things like biryani and curries, too much faffing about and the chance of broken teeth.
Custard (I do like pink and chocolate custard though)
Vanilla Slices
Rice Pudding
Indian sweets

Will not drink...

Cider (after a rather vomity incident in Roxy's disco when I was 17)

Well, after trying to fight with every single poster on here I thought a bit of self-deprecation might be worthwhile.

Default Re: Dinner

I really do think that I eat anything except CousCous. I hated cold semolina as a child and couscous is the same 5h1t right? Rarely eat fish but if someone invites us for dinner or BBQ I’ll eat it all so they have to bring the decent food (meat) out quicker.

Seriously, I’m looking through the menu in tonight’s hotel and whilst I would choose some dishes over others, there’s nothing there I would not eat.

Heading to the bar now so I’ll have a good look on the shelves and see if there’s anything I wouldn’t drink lol.

Yeah, you argumentative bastard. I'm a bit calmer today, too.

Although I must say I wouldn't trust someone who doesn't like custard (not you, that foreigner from a different part of Yorkshire).

My sidekick (who now knows the word procrastinate, and is eager to use it at every opportunity) impressed upon me today the notion that we shouldn't procrastinate in respect of our usual Wednesday night out or cheese 'n' wine night, and that we should do it today (Tuesday). I couldn't muster a logical refutation, so I'm off to Carrefour post-haste to get the fermented curd and some plonk. But it might just be Campari tonight instead... (on the rocks, none of your Campari-and-soda or Campari-and-orange flamboyance).

I fancy a nice piece of Wensleydale.

Sacrilegious!

I love custard. I love anything custard related, including ice cream, flan, creme brulee and plain ol' custard poured over pudding. One exception, however, no custard on the Christmas pudding. Brandy butter only.

The smell and consistency gives me the shudders which is a bit of a shame for the custard loving MrBEVS.

I'm trying to be calmer, but just been told to go to Sydney for two weeks with work which I could really do without....but am also quite excited about. Just makes the rest of this week manic and the weekend more boozey.
