I note on the news that some wee lassie from Scotland has had a million hits on her blog showing a picture of her school dinner and doing a critique of it. A million hits eh?
Well, never one to miss jumping on a bandwagon, here is my dinner this evening
Reheated leftover minced beef and parsnip curry with rice and a green lentil daal to pad it out. All cooked by my own fair hand.
Now I’m supposed to score it.
Appearance - 3 out of 5 - marred by the fact that it is in what is obviously a bowl meant for Italian cuisine instead of Indian. There is also a stray grain of rice on the rim.
Flavour – 4 out of 5. Everyone knows(or should know) a curry is better if left to mature for a couple of days. One point knocked off because the spices had lost a bit of their punch.
Quantity – 3 out of 5. Adequate only because the daal was nice and filling.
Nutritional value - 3 out of 5. Extra lean mince, but probably too much oil for my waistline. A few sprigs of coriander does NOT count as one of your 5 a day.
That makes 13 out of 20.
All I have to do now is to wait for my million hits. Fame at last.
