    I just cooked-up a quick Thai inspired prawn curry which was surprisingly good. No picture but I thought I'd list the ingredients before I forget them.

    Prawns (I used frozen)
    1 red pepper
    12 sprouts
    1 carrot
    2 shallots
    1 very large Inferno Chilli
    2 cloves garlic
    Thumb sized piece of galangal, grated
    2 kaffir lime leaves
    Rind of 1 lemon
    Juice of half a lemon
    White pepper
    Tblsp ground corriander
    Tblsp fish sauce

    Served with rice.

    nearly washed past me ... but anyone cooking with sprouts has good credentials ... .. albeit frozen prawns might have toured Thailand.

    Thanks. The sprouts were lovely. Yes, the prawns weren't ideal but they'd been in the freezer a while and needed using up.

    Payday and I didn't have anything decent in the house for eating, so I decided to get a Dominos for dinner. Their doing a deal for 2 medium pizzas and a side for £19.99. Got the new Catalan Chicken & Chorizo, with the onions swapped for extra chorizo. Second pizza is half chicken feast, half pepperoni passion. And the side I got was the new garlic dippers. Quite nice :)

    EDIT: Phew! Way too much food! Still got about half the slices left. I'll save it for tomorrow :p

    Oh come on, a little extreme don't you think?

    What's the Catalan chicken like @Craig1981 I really want to try it and see what it's like.

    I didn't really like the garlic dippers. They were pretty dry to me, the pizza garlic bread is definitely superior.

    Cold. Always cold.

    It’s quite nice. With the chorizo, peppers and the drizzle of sauce over it it’s a good pizza.

    Can't get over the fact that people will pay £20+ for Domino's pizza.

    Wow.

    Late breakfast/brunch at Scran yet again for their weekend special. Dirty Macca, which is truffle macaroni cheese with maple glazed ham hock, black pudding crumb and a garlic & herb pretzel bun. Was so good! The portion was bigger than I expected it to be though. Ended up being so full that I didn't go anywhere for lunch.

    Two delicious bacon sandwiches, I let the bacon cook just a bit longer so they're all nice and crispy.
