Default Things I ate when back home for Christmas

Mmmmmmmm!

Bacon sarnies, proper bread buns with flour on and nice butter

Massive christmas dinner, turkey, pigs in blankets, roasties, and best off all a massive bacon/sausagemeat/mushroom stuffing concoction that was almost like a meatlof - and the next day we took slices of it and fried it up for breakfast, think I may have had a heart attack but it was worth it

A nice 'chinglish' when hungover - house special fried rice with curry and chips, yum

gravy and chips - down the quayside when pissed up


(just thought I'd start a food thread, you can;t really go wrong...)



Things I didn;t have:

Greggs pasties, no idea why

Inexplicably - fish'n'chips, I am still in shock over this.....

I had mostly what Spugsy had and funnily enough I never had Fish N Chips either!!

Pigs in Blankets were nice and the roasties done in Goose fat.

Had a nice Chinglish or two as well, First thing I ate was a Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin meal with 2 Hash Browns - Yummmmer!!

Lots of mum's cooking followed, fry up's etc, very good!

Oooooh I almost forgot, had a nice pint of Cheddar Valley Cider when I was down in Somerset, delicious!!

I didn't have a proper English curry

And I even visited Bradford!

No fish and chips either, or battered haggis...

In fact, I think I did it all wrong. Except for the regular bacon sandwiches
