Barty you know the rules. This is a show me yours and I'll show you mine trade off. No laughing at other people till you've got your one out for the public. Don't try and cheat the system. Fucking hell.
Been getting into this white ragu pasta lately. Think I've perfected it.
Sofrito, pancetta, minced chicken, bit of chili, white wine to deglaze, chicken stock, bunch of thyme in there, cook on low for an hour, little bit of sugar to correct the bitterness (important), bit of milk or cream, toss the pasta in there once the sauce has reached desired consistency, finish with parmesan.
Often I eat a sandwich before my commute home because I'm pretty hungry by that point in the day and I know that otherwise I'll have to wait until I'm home, and then will have to cook something (i.e. microwave it) or - more likely - will greedily order another Deliveroo.
The prawn sandwich was from Sainsburys, triangular box, refrigerated. It wasn't bad actually - I could have done a lot worse.
But I've really lost it since spring. At the tail end of 2018 and until around march/april I was eating very sensibly and I'd lost over a stone. Now I'm back in guzzling mode. I keep putting off the change that someday must come.
My situation isn't an excuse, but - I live in a five person house, sharing a kitchen with four people (plus their partners, often), and the rent is very low, which gives me more disposable income than someone like me can be expected to use responsibly.
