Never understood the local hype for Chips Oman. Tastes like chemicals. Lays Chilli flavour are much better than Chips Oman, especially in sandwiches.

Tyrrells?

Plenty of posh crisps from Devon being sold in the GCC these days.

I don't eat crisps often as I find them greasy but Tyrrells is decent.

Had falafel last night, lentils with carrots and chopped coriander for lunch today. Quite tasty.

Hmm. No, hell on earth is a triple bypass open heart surgery because of a lifetime of unhealthy eating

Anyway, before Scamp scolds me, let me also add that I want everyone to eat the way that makes them happy. Everyone at peace now?

Supermarkets here are pony - long gone are the days of going to a decent butcher or getting decent healthy-ish ready meals from Waitrose (their easy cook range was fantastic)

There's also a lack of any good 'food to go' ranges. Boots meal deal was a winner for me.

Long gone are the days when people would actually cook a meal, modern lifestyles etc are just an excuse not to as it does not take that long to cook up something tasty, healthy and nutritious...ready meals arrrgghhh (unless they are from Marks!)

I like the fact there aren't really any ready meals here...although they're creeping in.

This week we've cooked a chilli, lasagna, chicken and leek pie, a roast (eurgh) and something else but I can't remember.

It's not hard, even if you're as lazy as me.

I must say the chilli, lasagne, chicken and leek pie sounds fantastic.

I think it's a bit complex. Have no idea what wine to have with it.
