    Sounds great, Barry. So was that enjoyed at home, or in a restaurant, and if it was the former, who did the cooking?

    I can honestly say I doubt that anything I've eaten today has had significant nutritional value. Must do better.

    Hmm. Had chicken salad in a granary roll lunchtime. Followed by an apple and coffee.

    Got fish in the oven at the moment, nothing special, just Birds Eye pollack in breadcrumbs (which I like). Oiled sweet potato slices baking too and spinach to go with those.
