    Dinner 2020

    拉麺, ラーメン Ramen with pork, garlic, chilli, baby bok choy, boiled duck egg. OK. I'm not going to be awarded the city keys to Tokyo or any other Japanese city, but it wasn't at all bad.
  2. I got through about 5 stick blenders in 10 years, then bought my Bamix 20 years ago. Still going strong. That makes it cheaper!
  3. None of the four Geneva Conventions say any such thing.
  4. I remember visiting my mother in hospital and meeting my new (only sister). That was 1963. My mother was lying in bed with a bottle of Guinness! Even then, still really a kid, but I thought otherwise, I was shocked that she was drinking alcohol! She was normally totally teetotal. Back then it was considered medically advantageous and available on the NHS for free.
  5. Not exactly. If I get in a taxi and ask them to take me to the airport but they take me to the railways station, I sure as hell ain't paying. If they take me to the airport, but drive like a lunatic, I may say something but would stil pay. They have fulfilled the contract. Same with restaurants. If I ask for chicken curry, for example, and they bring me fish, I ain't paying. If they bring me chicken which I don't enjoy, I pay.
  6. But the real question is "how do you open them?"
  7. Unlikely. Malnutrition. I asked him about vegetabes or fruit. He informed me that chips were vegetables and that he had had a banana three years previously. I'd like to say this is a joke. Again, it isn't.

    Breakfast 2020!

    三鲜馄饨 (sān xiān hún tún) - three delicacy wontons in spicy chicken broth with lettuce.
  9. Many years ago, I was briefly hospitalised in London and was recovering in a public ward. The food was awful (but thanks to the good old NHS, free). In the next bed was this man in his late 30s/early 40s (I guess). One day he said to me that he thought the food was wonderful. I assumed he was being sarcastic, but it became clear that he really meant it. I asked him what he usually ate at home. He replied that every day he had fish 'n chips from the local chip shop. Except Sundays, when he had chicken 'n chips instead. Again, I thought he must be joking, but no. I
  10. The OP seems to be a connoisseur of bad food. Sounds like what trolls eat.
  11. Love stories like this. Thanks. (Format looked normal to me.)
  12. @Rodk It seems to me from your three examples that you simply didn't like the food you ordered. That does not excuse you from paying. Only if what you were served was not what you ordered would you have any case.
  13. I avoid plastic bags as much as possible. The damage they do is horrendous.
  14. Now, don't misunderstand me; I like a nice classic Magnum from time to time. But. today when I looked in the supermarket freezer they only had these. Matcha Magnums?! There ought to be a law! Hanging is too good for them! When I want a cup of tea, I'll make tea! When I want a Magnum, I want a Magnum!

    It isn't rice. As I said, it's orzo.

    Dinner 2020

    Spicy Lemon Shrimp with Orzo Shrimp fried with garlic, chilli and lemon zest. Finished with lemon juice and basil.
  17. Adding Some are sweetened, so take that into account when choosing.
  18. Of your options, I've only had soy milk. It's OK and neutral in taste, but I'm not really a milk user. Sorry, can't recommend specific brands, but can't see that they would differ much.

    Dinner 2020

    Spicy 炒面 (chǎo miàn) with pork and "pig stomach mushrooms (猪肚菇 zhū dù gū).
  20. Let's not forget my predilection for eating cheddar cheese with banana bread. Nothing “wrong“ with that. Remarkably sensible. Perfectly normal.
  21. I never eat "wrong"; it's everyone else who does. But seriously, the only thing I do (or don't do) which may be peculiar to some is that the only time I put butter on bread is when I specifically want bread and butter, which I often do. I never include butter in other sandwiches. Butter in a bacon sandwich? Never? Cheese sandwich? Certainly not. I also never put cheese on hamburgers. Although I love cheese. Real cheese.
