"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,

I like the plates . Glad to see you are enjoying a scotch egg or two .
Gourmet night - Bon appetit!
that's a well rounded diet.
LOL, very round . At last I get to actually see a Scotch egg. It was still a mystery to me. I hope todays breakfast is something different.
Egg on toast
Being a girl from the South, mine was a Deviled Egg.
Hilarious. I especially like the presentation for both meals.
Can you eat just one?
I like your lunch plate. The tiny salt and pepper shaker - is that nicked from one of the airlines? Oh and I like your bowl of fruit.
How very dare youThey are solid silver topped victorian condiments
...and ever so posh for eating ones Scotch Egg ~
Please, please, please, treat your cruet to a touch of silver polish! X
Ha-ha! You daft sod. Don't you know that man cannot liveth by scotch egg alone?
But it looks as though he'll have a good try !
do wine and scotch eggs REALLY go together? I fancy a banana right now...
Its diet coke..... Its all pretend
Coke goes with Everything ... sez the girl from North Carolina who drank it for breakfast in the summer time.
diet coke? damn, I am disappointed. :(
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.
There is.... Go to Marks and Spencers in Prestatyn on a saturday morning and they are reduced to 80 p
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!
Healthy eating. An example to us all.
My work here is done
Left at loose ends were you?
Its been torrential rain here all day and I am on night shift tonight
Really the saddest please come home I miss you post I've seen in a long time.
From the shadows, did you take both pics at the same time?
"So you think the two shots were cynically staged Detective Eversfield?" asked Watson.
The kitchen lights could not be moved
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.
I love it! At least you are civilised enough to present it on a plate!
Standards simone, standards
There'll be plenty of farting tonight.
What is the appetizer ? little bitty scotch eggs ?
lol ... sparrow scotch eggs ?
*sniggering* can't think of anything smaller than a sparrow!
Hummingbird! Hummingbird Scotch eggs!
Brilliant! Now where can we get some to send to John lol!
Love the change of dishes. Both dishes are lovely but your supper plate is beautiful.Shows off your scotch egg off to perfection.LOLcheers, parsnip
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).

Classy! Table linens, tableware, wine, cutlery.
Sorry John, missed a word out. What I said was - you a nurse, where are your five a day?
Wine is made from grapes. Therefore it is one of your five a day. Healthy meal. What?
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.
Now with a custard tart for pudding you would have had a meal fit for the gods..x
Using different plates shows dedication over what I can muster. I wash them, but use it for the next meal as well.
Preceded with a squash bisque and followed by a nice green salad of course.
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?
What beautiful settings...with a prize for two meals.
Heck - I saw Scotch Eggs in Tesco today and immediately thought of you!
For John, the five a day would be five Scotch eggs ! One has to admire his elegant dining.
By the look of the bananas, you should eat some of those next! Love the stripy tablecloth, by the way x
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!
I can see the Prof shaking his head......
Ha ha ha! A new food group :)
Keep it simple I always say.
Come off it John, you're not a bachelor any more!
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.
The little salt and pepper shakers are a nice touch.
Where are the baked beans for supper??Cold... straight from the tin, of course....
Well, at least you set a beautiful table!
How dare you not have wine! LOL MissFifi
Ha, ha ha, it looks like a glass of wine presented itself for the second course of meals :)
With posh plates too, for me dining alone it would probably be straight out of the packet to save on the washing up lol.
A man after me own heart: presentation is everything and you certainly produce - even for a humble scotch egg.
YUM!! Any brown sauce or chutney going? :)
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
Did you move the fruit bowl so that we couldn't see that you'd eaten ALL the bananas ;-)
My Gram had plates like your lunch plate. Any time I see that pattern, I think of her.
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
