  10. I'm envious of your menus and admiring of your table settings. My attempts to prepare scotch eggs have ended with the egg and the sausage mix (cooked) mushed up in a cereal bowl. There must be a secret Welsh ritual to making scotch eggs.

    2. 80p?!? I get one at the Scottish pub around the corner and they charge $5! Each! Of course, you can't get them in the market here... but, still!

    2. The kitchen lights could not be moved

    3. Ah!
      I was just a little confused. I guess I didn't allow for lighting on in the daytime, which I should have considered at this time of year.

      Delete
  14. I love it! At least you are civilised enough to present it on a plate!

  18. A wee nutritional tip for you: A scotch egg makes a good snack to fill in that pesky gap midway between lunch and supper. (Dr. Scott).

  20. Classy! Table linens, tableware, wine, cutlery.

  21. Sorry John, missed a word out. What I said was - you a nurse, where are your five a day?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wine is made from grapes. Therefore it is one of your five a day. Healthy meal. What?

    ReplyDelete

    1. My husband used to say that ! He told me how healthy he was because of the wine. I would say he lied but the man was never sick. Ever.

  23. Now with a custard tart for pudding you would have had a meal fit for the gods..x

    ReplyDelete
  24. Using different plates shows dedication over what I can muster. I wash them, but use it for the next meal as well.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Preceded with a squash bisque and followed by a nice green salad of course.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The caloric value probably works, where are the veggies? I had sausage and egg myself, in a different configuration.
    By the by - have you given up on the weight loss group?

    ReplyDelete
  27. What beautiful settings...with a prize for two meals.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Heck - I saw Scotch Eggs in Tesco today and immediately thought of you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. For John, the five a day would be five Scotch eggs ! One has to admire his elegant dining.

    ReplyDelete
  30. By the look of the bananas, you should eat some of those next! Love the stripy tablecloth, by the way x

    ReplyDelete
  31. OMG, what is going on in the universe? My breakfast this morning was a little leftover Orange-cranberry muffin my husband baked last night. Lunch was the other left over muffin. I do have to say, I made my own two cup of coffee. At least you dine with class. I just grabbed one and ate it on the way down the hall, headed to computer. Rex, the dog loves the crumbs!

  32. I can see the Prof shaking his head......

  33. Ha ha ha! A new food group :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Keep it simple I always say.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Come off it John, you're not a bachelor any more!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Darn, John. Now I will have to go scavenging for that old recipe. Nowhere around here you could buy a Scotch egg if you life depended on it. Now of course I am really craving one. Thank you, this is just what I needed today.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The little salt and pepper shakers are a nice touch.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Where are the baked beans for supper??
    Cold... straight from the tin, of course....

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well, at least you set a beautiful table!

    ReplyDelete
  40. How dare you not have wine! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ha, ha ha, it looks like a glass of wine presented itself for the second course of meals :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. With posh plates too, for me dining alone it would probably be straight out of the packet to save on the washing up lol.

    ReplyDelete
  43. A man after me own heart: presentation is everything and you certainly produce - even for a humble scotch egg.

    ReplyDelete
  44. YUM!! Any brown sauce or chutney going? :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Lonely little Scotch eggs are no substitute for a meal when a night shift looms. I'd need some chips and peas to go with that. Love the crockery and miniature silverware. xx

    ReplyDelete
  46. Did you move the fruit bowl so that we couldn't see that you'd eaten ALL the bananas ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. My Gram had plates like your lunch plate. Any time I see that pattern, I think of her.
