The barman who made the Japanese Iced Tea wrote his recipe on a piece of till receipt paper which was stuck on our fridge until it gradually faded and, unfortunately, I never noticed until it was too late.
There are versions on the web which include ingredients I don’t recognise/recall from the original recipe we were given.
Experimentation is always better when it involves booze, ill find the best combo :p

Going to make what I call a "skillet". Base of thin-sliced potatoes, nicely browned and heavily seasoned. Then add some meat (in this case, kielbasa) and veggies (just bought a bag of mixed bell peppers and onion). Once those are good and done, move them out to the outskirts of the skillet, then add a few scrambled eggs.

After the eggs are sorta done, mix everything up and serve with some buttered toast. Amazing for dinner or breakfast.

Last night I had fettuccine alfredo with ham and peas mixed in. Yummy.

By the way...
When I was young (yes, I can remember that far back) bacon all had the rind still on, and more often than not would have a small round bit of bone/cartilage somewhere in each rasher.
These days.....neither.
So I can be fairly sure that the producers of bacon remove the rind (skin) and sell it separately to be made into 'crackling'/'scratchings'.
I don't know how it is in the rest of the world, but in America you once could get bags of cracklings in the snack aisle, near the potato chips/crisps, labeled "bacon rinds". Now they have been replaced with pork rinds, which are not as tasty. Some years back I found some real bacon rinds. The packaging said that hogs are now processed in such a way that the bacon rind is not available to snack producers, and they got theirs from a special source. I don't remember the reason for the change in production - whether it was because the rind was used elsewhere, because it was cheaper to ship this way, because it was more efficient to butcher this way, or something else. It seems to me that the lack of bacon rinds occurred around the same time that hogs were beginning to be bred to have less fat, and perhaps less myoglobin, to become "the other white meat".

Straying off topic but I went to a fete in Suffolk with my nephew - in the corner of the Marquee was a 7ft tall model of Postman Pat. His plastic phallic nose was huge, as were his strangler hands and he just looked creepy. After 10 minutes the fecker moved - there was some-one inside the costume. I nearly shat myself.

I occasionally eat my favorite cookie which is Oreos cookies.

I looked on line and 40 billion Oreos are eaten every year.

Sushi for lunch.

and made stew (lamb this time, not goat) for supper. I can smell it now.

But I should try something new; Im helping out a local Heritage Group with their open day, the theme is food.

And serendipitously, I found a wonderful book The Taste of Britain, by Millon

All those great British recipes you never see in restaurants.

Poirot’s Chief Inspector Japp is always eating mushy peas.

Is this a favorite of anyone who posts here ?

It does not sound good.

Not a favourite of mine. Best avoided.
Ordinary peas are nice, but not mushy peas or 'processed' peas.

Well more accurately that's 39.9999 billion Oreos prised apart, the cream filling licked out and the biscuit bit given to an unimpressed dog or aquatic fowl.

I would lie but I always get caught out so it was two cheese burgers from our newly opened McDonalds for the last ten or so days in a row... because I like them. The Mrs tells me off because I've had kidney stone dramas and she's right but weighing every up .. I've been cooking all day, I don't want to do that when I get back home and two Maccy D minis are only £1.98 .. she's right but I also pointed out that there's no sushi bars on the way home and I have to also sleep sometimes.

I used to eat that when I was at Uni; Saver menu fries and double cheese; £2.56 Where else are you going to find a decent meal that cheap?

McDonald's in the US is okay but mediocre. However I believe that for some reason American fast food is better in other countries. I ate at a Wendy's - one of my favorites - in Switzerland and it was amazingly superior to the American version.

If you like peas there's no reason why you wouldn't like mushy peas. They're just a particular variety - Marrowfat peas, which are dried. They're then reconstituted/soaked then boiled/seasoned until they go mushy. There's a method here. Traditional accompaniment to fish 'n chips. You can get them ready made in cans but I can't give any recommendation as to the better ones.

They don't look that appetising but don't let that put you off.
