    We can buy packs of frozen 'seafood' but it's not the same as fresh fish.
    Yeah, Waitrose is about the only supermarket I'd buy seafood from, but I'd still rather it was fresh. The big bag we get from the Portuguese place does about six meals, and the quality is superb.

    I don't mind spending money on good food, because it's one of life's essentials/pleasures, and so it's nice to sit down to something that 'excites' your tastebuds, and you're genuinely looking forward to eating, rather than a plate of 'tasteless stodge', or horror of horrors, a supermarket 'ready meal', simply to fill you up!

    Lol... Madness! And you're mad if you give it to them, when you can make the same thing at home (much better) for not much more than a fiver!

    Anyway, there'll be no cooking today, as Del's been working hard recently, so I'm treating her to lunch at our favourite wine bar, where on a Sunday they also have live music:

    Should be good!

    Marco.
    Clearly my linguistic pun went over your head.

    Yes I like pasta: spaghetti, cannelloni, linguini, penne and fuseli. Also like ravioli and lasagne.

    Anyway back to "British stodge" - last night it was home made vegetable soup, followed by steak and ale pie, boiled potatoes, carrots with an aniseed and honey glaze, leeks, peas, green beans and broccoli.

    Taken from their website:

    Since opening its doors in 1931, it has had a long and colourful history, with a clientele that has ranged from Lord Byron and Marcel Proust to Orson Welles and Trueman Capote, as well as many a passing millionaire. Ernest Hemmingway was a fixture during the long winter of 1949-50. Harry's retains its charm today, as do its friendly staff with the aid of a dazzling array of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails, they will help to anaesthetise you against the size of the bill at the end of the night.

    Since Lord Byron died in 1824, I seriously doubt he was a customer there. Also the last sentence gives the game away: just another overpriced bar living off the fame and reputation of its past clients.

    No doubt you have visited El Floridita in Havana, a bar made famous by Hemmingway. Again nothing special, despite Hemingway's patronage.

    It's a bit like taking tea at the Ritz, London or at the Strand Hotel, Rangoon. A decent cuppa, but in no way improved by the cachet of the address.

    I'm going to try to reproduce something like the meal you linked to earlier Grant.

    But using chicken instead of what looks like prawns.

    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
