Today's Gousto meal was Dal with portaloo mushrooms and something that was CLAIMED to be chutney but was not like a pickle-y jam type thing so I SUPPOSE I don't know what chutney is now. It was quite nice. In fact the hardest thing was opening a lentil can, both of their can ringpulls came off without the lid.

I had to grill the mushrooms but I do not have a reasonable grill. I couldn't use the George Foreman because it would have squished the mushrooms. If I do out the kitchen this year then one thing is to get a proper grill like what I had at Park Cres.

Anyway that is my four meals from the first box. I think I will get another box but maybe not after that because they are expensive. Unless YOU would like a discount code. I mean I have obviously sold you on the idea by being so whelmed.

All four meals had generous portions, they were all for TWO PERSONS but they could have squeezed to a third I reckon. I wish they did boxes for SPINSTERS OF THE PARISH, i.e. one person, then I would get their boxes forever.

Yooka-Laylee arrives tomorrow. Possibly I also go to B&Q for some things. I did a bit of electrical repair today and as usual did not die. I hope I don't get too blase about not dying from electricity, pride goeth before a FALL.

I love how much you post about food.

What did they send you that claimed to be chutney? Chutney is definitely a pickly jam kind of thing, I both asked Sarah and looked at google images to make sure.

I have never died from electricity either. Also once a Proper Electrician came to my house and he was going to switch the electricity off in order to do a thing, and I went 'oh my burglar alarm goes off if you turn the electricity off' and he said never mind then, and just did it with the electricity on. Which suggests to me that electricity is a LIE.

It is just like us to decide that what we like is the real kind of chutney and to ignore the rest of the world's wrong opinion.

I think burglar alarms are meant to have batteries that they use when disconnected from the mains, but if they have run out of battery and get disconnected they just scream sadly into the night. BUt only for about twenty minutes, so it's fine.

Oh, I forgot to do Gousto! It is too late for this week now, so I will save it up to do next time my parents go away. I have a coop ready meal which is some sort of gnocchi bake which I have high hopes for.
