Jon Crispin's Notebook

The Full English

Posted in Family, Food, Health by joncrispin on 18/08/2013

I don’t post about food very often, but I feel like doing so today.

This weekend marks the start of the English Premiership season, and Peter and I follow our respective teams (Manchester United and Fulham) faithfully.  We texted back and forth yesterday during the Fulham and United wins.  He has an amazing mind for the game and when I asked him about Darren Bent, who is new to Fulham, this is what I got as a response.

So anyway, it is a lot of fun for us.  Pete doesn’t eat a lot of the stuff that I like, but he likes to live vicariously through me.  For the past few weeks he has been telling me that I need to have the “full English” sometime this weekend.  So I cooked one up this morning and it was one of the best.  I’m not too bothered about not having mushrooms, but everything else is there, including the fried bread, and the English Heinz beans.  If figure I’ll be OK if I limit myself to two or three of these a year.

Fish and chips

I usually don’t post pictures of food but due to popular demand, here it is.  It was haddock which to me is just a bit better than cod.  Sublime.
