Damn that looks good. Having not eaten since Tuesday night it's torture though.
Good news about the gas passing!
Maybe I should hold off with pics of my gas producing corn beef and cabbage.

The thing is, the average Joe Wine Drinker won't know the difference between authentic French wine or an imposter.


Like me.


I'll have wine if it is being served while having dinner at a friend's place, or if they come here for dinner with a bottle of whatever Chateau Bonzo they picked up on the way over. But to say I have a preference for this or that vintage of vino from a far away land would be a stretch.


How about a Stella?

There. Fixed that.

And now for my reward ... I shall open another bottle ...

Took Mrs. Racer out for dinner for her birthday today. Sushi Belt And Roll, one of those places where the food comes around on a conveyor. We feasted, lots of sushi and sake, and then I bought her some more rose bushes for the garden.
Happy Birthday, Mrs R You romantic old thing, Racer

It's years since I've been to one of those sushi-on-a-conveyor places. There were some very good ones in London that I used to enjoy visiting, but since moving back up to the North East, my eating out partners are more reserved in their tastes, so I haven't been to one for at least three and a half years I do love good sushi and sashimi. I might have to organise a solo visit sometime soon...

Never been a big fan of sake, though... For me, it has a funky kind of taste. Something to do with the natural sweetness, I guess, but it's not a sugary sweetness... not sure how to explain it

It goes very well after a bite of sweet pickled ginger, in between bites of sushi.

I'll have to give that a try I don't need much encouragement where exotic alcoholic beverages are concerned

As an aside (and I may have mentioned this before), during my (now elapsed) time as a member of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, I tried a couple of Japanese single malts - made using peat imported from the UK - and they were fantastic. One of them, I believe, won an award for best whisky of the year, much to the chagrin of the Scottish distilleries...
