Today is Peter’s birthday.  United were playing Stoke, so while Cris went to the Capitol for the march, he and I went to The Lucky Bar to watch the match.  I took this photo in added time, about a minute before Rooney equalized.  It was a great goal and the bar went wild.  So nice to watch football with him on his birthday.  Cris is on her way back to his flat, then out to dinner tonight.

Happy birthday, Laddie.

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.
