    Caprese Salad. The best salad in the World.

    At least for me.

    Someone mentioned salad today, so tonight's antipasto was a no brainer.

    Couldn't be simpler. Buffalo Mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. Olive oil and ground black pepper and salt to garnish.

    Unfortunately I only had a slab of mozzarella and not buffalo.



    About 3 minutes later.



    Simple and delish.

    Whats the point in eating salad with so much fatty cheese in it.


    In fact that looks nothing like a salad, looks more like you had no bread in your cupboard for the sandwich :-)

    Because you are allowed to eat vegetables if you aren't on a diet?

    I'm no Sherlock Holmes but I reckon you grew up in the 70's and 80's in an industrial town.

    ha ha

    Piccalilli (never sure how to spell that) is a gift from the culinary Gods.

    It was much the same round my house at least til we got a bit older.

    "What do you want with your chips?"

    "Findus crispy pancakes, please"

    Kids are fussy anyway but there wasn't the dirth of information there is now.

    Jamie Oliver would have been looked at like a freak and banished in the 80's.

    I've no idea mate, but yeah the minced beef ones were my favourite too.

    Potato Waffles instead of chips was another beauty.

    Used to love it when my grandad looked after us we'd have mince and onions, corned beef hash or a pan of scouse. Loads of brown sauce. Get in!

    Congealed pigs blood never appealed to me, nor any offal.

    I used to deliver all around there Toxteth , Bootle , Anfield , Kirkdale , Norris green , then back out on the Aigburth road from Toxteth to reload at Halewood ( then go as quick as I could before some scaly nicked me wheels ) only joking , had some brilliant nights out there loved it

    The worst thing for me is the poxy low trees on all the ring roads with my car transporter 16 foot high , but I ducked and dived
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    You have obviously never been to a Liverpool home match and been asked "Watch your car for a fiver" from a 10 year old kid, and paid him!

    ^It's a thin Lamb or Beef stew with potatoes, carrots onions. Slow cooked or more often (by my grandad) obliterated in a pressure cooker. We normally had pickled beetroot with it.

    It's not that different to any other stew as far as I can tell, apart from it wasn't thickened like the stews my Mum made.

    Just shows what I know , I was always under the illusion it was a potato based pan fried thing , glad I didn't ask for one of them in the cafe in Lodge lane I used to frequent , I would have been very disappointed
