    So which is the best one now ? I was a student there 20 odd years ago...mmm I remember you could get a curry then for about three quid. (Puts on best Yorkshire accent) tell that to kids today. They just won't believe you.

    It's all changed Redjeep.
    The old stalwarts like Kashmir, Sweet Centre, Karachi etc etc are all pretty average now.
    The 'chains' that weren't chains as only one branch in Bradford back in the day such as Ackbars, Mumtaz etc all do central kitchen sauces vanned out daily to the branches. TBH it's generally sh1te compared to the curry and three chupatties on formica for a few quid like it used to be.
    I tend to buy in Leeds as live there and there are a couple of excellent little takeways the cab drivers use and they are still good.
    Mine came from Ambala in Bradford tonight which is a choice of some cab drivers in Bradford and is really good for a takeaway depending on what you get.
    Maybe another thread is beckoning on this one?

    Coupla garlic butter portabello mushrooms with some fresh chopped parsley
    HUGE salmon fillet (enough for 3 or 4) pan fried with some seasoning, creamy mash and green veg. Drizzle of lemon juice
    Waitrose new york cheesecake.

    Bit of salmon left for a creamy pasta mushroom sauce tomorrow.

    I love eating so f*cking much but it never goes anywhere. Still a lanky 70kg. Just wanna be a bit more muscley....

    Something cheap, like value pasta and value tomatoes. Maybe with a bit of value cheese grated on. To drink I'll be having Cheshire Spring.

    Try adding tinned Ratatouille (?) and a bit of smoked sausage...at worst peparami will do!

    I had a big fat chicken salad bap last night with herb mayo... but did have a huge plate of venison stew and roasted new potatoes for lunch.

    I've recently been pleasantly surprised by Sainsbury's bog-standard, dirt-cheap (25p a jar) Basics curry sauce which is rather tasty and a good base for a cheap & easy tea (usually a mix of random veg in my case; meat doesn't agree with me during the racing season). Neither too bland nor too fiery-hot and although a budget item, not pumped full of E-numbers.

    For DINNER I'm having: pasta, sauce, onion, pepper and mushroom. No meat tonight, the fridge is bare and M&S is 3 miles away!

    For TEA I'd be 'avin' a chip butty and a cup of gravel. But I don't do tea (unless it's a proper Afternoon Tea with finger sandwiches (no sniggering) and cakes).

    Amusing "Tea" joke told to me by a former colleague (from Hartlepool):

    Q: What's the difference between Upper, Middle and Working Class people?
    A: When you ask "What's your favourite tea?", an Upper Class person will reply something like "Oh, I adore Darjeeling", Middle Class will say "I find PG Tips quite nice" but a Working Class person will say "Pie and chips"

    Boom and indeed, boom :mrgreen:

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    Homemade fish fingers made by my girlfriend's daughter.

    No matter how I arrange that sentence it sounds wrong.

    That's a new one on me. Homemade fish cakes I've tried before now. They always collapsed into mush during the frying stage. :(

    Made a toad in the hole with apples, mashed potatoes, onion gravy and peas and corn.

    Not bad, but next time I'll make the onion gravy first, get the potatoes cooked beforehand and only then start making the batter.
