    I can't hear/see 'jus' or 'coulis' without thinking of James Martin ranting that it's a gravy/sauce.

    I've not got a table/chairs, nor any glasses.

    You'd be offered what I'd be having: oven chips done in the microwave, nuked baked beans and a mug of black coffee (no milk here).

    Served on a plastic picnic plate, or the microwave dish I cooked your dinner in.

    I've got ketchup and vinegar if you like those.

    If you're lucky I might be able to get some frozen slices of cheapo (36p/loaf) bread from the freezer and defrost that and spread some cheap marg on it to accompany your chips/beans. Generally I don't bother as that bread'd be another meal.

    Queen of puddings? Pop's you've let me down, you've let you down and you've let the whole of Wales down with that menu

    The person who i would chose to dine with though is flick because she's loaded and her loadedness reflects in her 3 type of veg mash. We just do spud mash down here!

    Oh, I'm jealous now!

    What about leek and potato soup, with Viilage Bakery rolls and Menyn Caer?

    With Welsh cakes for pudding? They butter them here in North Wales! Wrong!

    My current favourite dish, although it takes a huge amount of time to do is "Red Beans and Rice", a traditional Louisiana dish.

    You start the night before by placing 500gm dried kidney beans in water to soak overnight.

    Next day get out the slow cooker and add beans, in a frying pan fry three slices of bacon until there's enough fat to saute one cup chopped green pepper, three cups chopped onion, two chopped cloves of garlic and one half cup chopped celery, add to beans. Add 500g sliced Andouille sausage and two ham hocks, add seven cups water, stir and cook on low all day.

    Garnish with chopped spring onion, serve with Tabasco and Cajun seasoning.

    Delicious!

    My signature dish - fish finger butties.

    The family appear to opine that starters & puds are for folk with washing up machines & thus go large on the main course.
