Golden Mozzarella and Veggie Couscous

This is a bit of a weird one - a combination of salad dressing, giant couscous, roast vegetables and a shallow fried burger made from a slice of mozzarella coated in breadcrumbs. It was very nice, though. I would make it again, though probably without aubergines because they are Satan's own vegetable.

Asian hoisin meatballs, sesame cabbage

This was nice enough, if unspectacular. Beef meatballs cooked and coated in hoisin sauce, served with basmati rice and some lightly cooked "chinese leaf" which I thought was a lettuce but is maybe a cabbage, or perhaps lettuce and cabbage are the same thing I don't know.

Chicken and chimichurri quesadillas

I ought to be all over this given that apparently quesadilla basically translates as "cheese sandwich". They were fine but again I wasn't wowed. Possibly because they are a bit messy to eat and I don't like stuff that is a bit messy to eat.

So the clear winner this week was WALDORF SALAD.

Also I watched Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, a companion movie to YOU GUESSED IT Final Fantasy XV. I was pleasantly surprised that it was mostly coherent both structurally and visually, and thus a step up from either Spirits Within or that VII one they did. The ol' uncanny valley effect came and went - sometimes the CGI was so realistic you forget it is CGI, other times it just felt like a game cutscene. The final fight scenes go on way too long but otherwise it held my interest, which isn't bad to say I found the game to be the weakest for a very long time. I have also been replaying XIII-2 and Lightning Returns which means my head is pretty much just chocobos at the moment. The remaster of XII comes out next week sometime. XII is probably my favourite so I am quite ready for that. DON'T BELIEVE ONDORE'S LIES.
