Today, at The Inn, Greatworth I ate a chicken fajita.  Almost, I didn't know what one was so I ordered it.  First came a plate with what looked like a rolled up plastic place-mat, a small dish of tomato/chilli sauce, another of grated cheese and yet one more of sour cream.  Shortly followed by a sizzling dish of chicken pieces, sliced mushrooms, diced red onion and diced red pepper.  There wasn't space to unroll the flour thing, so just ate a little of it (not nice) then added some cheese (eek) and sour cream to the sizzling dish, mixed it all together and it was truly delicious.  The salad had died the night before I think.  OH had Chilli con Carne which was not quite hot enough for his taste, BUT, the steak had been hand-chopped, not minced in a machine so was juicy and tender - just the way I do it.  Then he ate what was left on my first place...

So in essence, we would go back to eat there because the properly cooked stuff was wonderful.

I'll try that again!

Oh I live Fajitas TA, we don't have then that often, but they are lovely when nicely cooked with soft flour (or corn) tortillas

  wave   I love them too Janet, but God only knows what Toni had.  It certainly didn't sound like lovely tortillas did it?

sounds like a poor version of one yes TA, looks like that's what it was. They should be either steak or chicken stir fried with peppers and onions and a spicy sauce, sometimes come on a sizzling platter in pubs/restaurants. with a FEW tortillas, and side dishes of salsa, guacamole, sour cream and grated cheese.

Yes, I forgot about the tortilla things as I don't like to eat them.  There wasn't any guacamole but then, how often do you find a properly ripe avocado when you need one?

I'll try that again!

I had eggs too.....hard boiled with crumbled feta and salad leaves.  Not really a salad type of day cry but had half a bag of salad leaves that needed using up, and I hate throwing food away.  Steve had (bought, oh the shame embarassed, but it was off the Morrisons deli counter and reduced to a giveaway price) quiche with his salad - he said it was nowhere near as good as my homemade quiches.  Bless him, lol smooch

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

I had ham, baked beans and fried egg on toast.  The beans were from Aldi and were SO sweet that  I could hardly eat them.  I have more than half a tin left so will be adding my yellow chilli sauce to finish them.  Shan't be buying those again.

I'll try that again!
