On Saturday I went out for a meal with a friend and tried Somerset Chicken, which is chicken breast served with a sauce made with pear cider and cheddar cheese – it was sooo scrummy! 8 months ago

27 th March 2012 Another trip to Orient Express gave me thwe opportunity to try
a new dish …
14 Deep Fried Wonton – it said prawn and chicken but to be honest there was so much wrapper and so little filling it was hard to tell. Nice and crispy but not very tasty! 13 months ago
My first trip to Frankie and Benny’s resulted in my trying my daughter’s and son in law to be’s starters. They were insistant as they are keen to help me achieve this goal
12 Dough Balls – O.K. so this is really just teeny bread but as I’ve never had bread this teeny before I guess it counts.
13 Southern Blue Mushroom – flat mushrooms filled with mozzarella, garlic and breadcrumbs, oven baked and served with fresh rocket, Italian hard cheese and balsamic glaze. Slightly too garlicky for my taste but think I might try to make my own … one day ! 16 months ago
at my work’s meal out my friend had Creme Brulee as her dessert. There was a debate as to if it just tasted like cold custard, in order to get my opinion she gave me a taste so

Today i went to the nearby historic city of Lincoln’s famous Christmas market for the first time (despite it being only 60 miles away). My son-in-law to be bought a bag of chestnuts from a street vendor with a tradition ‘oven’ and shared :-) . I have to admit I thought they were yucky but at least I tried this festive “treat” . 17 months ago
Tonight I went out for a Chinese buffet with the ‘girls’ from work. The ideal opportunity to try new foods :-

9 Cantonese Chicken – I enjoyed this as well, so am feeling quite positive about this goal at the moment …. 18 months ago
My son has been to school today – yes I know it’s Sunday! He has had 4 hours GCSE maths revsion ready for tomorrow’s exam. My ex bought him a ticket for a rugby international today but he made the mature desicion to attend class instead so we went out to tea as a reward.
6 spiced chicken wings – I knew from the name these would be too hot for me but I had a taste so can legitimately list them on here
7 Chinese Rice Noodles – these were yummy and I’ll definately be having them again :-) 18 months ago
Took my son out for tea yesterday as it’s half term. Spurred on by knowing I could place an entry on here I tried something I was convinced I’d love it as everyone I know likes them but sadly it was too hot and spicy for my taste ..oh well at least I tried :-)

This week while my FIL was over from the States, I did a lot of cooking, also because I’m on school holidays as well.
We had a roast pork done on the Webber BBQ, pumpkin soup, kangaroo rigatoni, duck ala’orange, beef pho with kangaroo mince, chili con carne.
I’ve gained about 5kg during the fortnight, but I’ve been eating such varied dishes. Fish, seafood, game, beef, chicken, other poultry, it’s been a veritable smorgasboard.
I was so surprised at how well the crackling came up n the roast pork done on the BBQ, and then with the leftovers, we turned it in to pork green chili, and that was the first time I had tasted it.So yummy.
I love my food, and I’m hoping that if I can taste food better, and appreciate it more, and not scarf it down, then I will eat less, and maybe lose some weight as well. The good thing also is that I have lots of leftovers as well. This will be helpful when it comes to being organised and saving money. I’m getting there. 20 months ago

Yesterday I actually tried Indian food for the first time. It was a friend’s birthday and we went to the fabulous Spice of Life restaurant. I only tried mild dishes but was still impressed by my daring – yes there were traditional British alternatives ….. the meal was great.
