I should’ve posted this yesterday morning but I was too busy sulking about the fact that Mr P&P saw fit to purposefully wake me up at 8:30am because I looked “so content and comfortable” and he was jealous because he couldn’t sleep…
Anyway, I digress, rather a lot of eating out was done again this week, so there are a couple of reviews to come. One thing I will say is, Pizza Express, you will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart, no-one does a runny egg quite like you. I worked there as a waitress for 7 years and the quality has never ever faltered,
I gleefully fell upon the green tomatoes in Waitrose, I’ve always wanted to recreate the dish from the iconic film “Fried green tomatoes at the Whistestop cafe” and this weekend I did. With a liberal splash of Tabasco these little babies were everything I’d hoped for and more.
The banana split at JB’s was pretty nice, I haven’t been in there for years since a rather unpleasant episode with a surf & turf seasoned with pubic hair and some ice cold chilli on a portion of nachos. However, I saw a photo in my Twitter feed of one of their icecream sundaes and decided to give it another chance. I would rather go to Scoop & crumb though.
The jerk chicken rice and peas also deserves a mention too, the sauce was out of a bottle but I made the rice and peas from scratch from this recipe and I would highly recommend it.
As ever, if you’d like any of these recipes then just comment below, I’m going to do a recipe post on the pork later in the week.
