The Humble Tea (Something Fishy)


I'm losing the will to cook myself a decent meal,
even when of sheer necessity I must as a matter of survival.
Although with Maccas just up the road a bit there's little chance I'll starve to death.
But not today the easy option - battered fresh Gummy Shark, Chilean Mussels beneath buttered Cabbage
and an organic Dutch Cream Potato (microwaved in jacket) was my fare tonight, however unattractively presented.

That looks good, a really cosmopolitan mix. Lemons from? Native cabbage?

No wine - I would have thought a bottle of Lawson Dry Hills would have gone down very nicely with that.

Re: The Humble Tea (Something Fishy)

Nothing wrong with good food, simply cooked, and simply presented. Nothing wring with the good picture of said food either.

All ingredients except the frozen Mussels (Chilean) are local, Ed. Lemons are as prolific as weeds in my region and Oz is notorious for sharks!.

I've seen the pink set John, I bought mine about 40 years ago, three have survived which is mostly two more than needed unless Sandra is here! It was made in England by Johnson Bros.

For health reasons I'm a teetotaller Derek - I was not always so although I never drank more than a glass or two at any time in my life. I don't particularly like the taste or the intoxicating effect.

Thanks OM, I'm not one for fancy food or cooking - it is over indulgence in food that leads to illnesses and an early demise.
