Best of the rest #9

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.

    I haven't had a banana split in years, but nothing beats a good old fashioned ice cream sundae! Also loving the look of the jerk chicken.

    Mega hungry now!

    Sarah, you and Mark MUST try Scoop and Crumb on East Street, best icecream sundae in Brighton!!

    Give the jerk chicken a try, really really easy and the rice was enough for 2 greedy people's supper and packed lunch the next day!
