Disaster dinner

This is how it was supposed to look.

This is how it looked.
And it didn't even taste nice.

Ah, well, I decided that as dinner was so awful I deserved a treat: a Crunchie choc ice when we went to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. We've started running community cinema at Linden and this was the second film to be shown and it was to a full house. 

Excellent gentle entertainment for an evening. My very favourite line came from Maggie Smith who said something along these lines: "I'm too old to plan for the future; I don't even buy green bananas." I don't know why it tickled me so much but I'm still chuckling about that.

Oh and my treat included butter popcorn too. But only a small bag!

I hope they still tasted okay though!

Nope! Not really.

Shame it didn't taste good :(

We had thai fish curry which tasted lovely in the pan until I attempted to put a few drops of lime juice from a bottle in to it and mistakenly tipped in a 1/4 of a bottle!

I would love to go and see that film :)

I am more interested in what you thought of the film, I mentioned it to my d/i/law today:-)

You most probably didn't cool your fishcakes long enough, and also might of cooked too high and turned over too quickly .. :-)

I saw that movie and LOVED it! All those great old stars - Maggie Smith is one of my all-time favourite. Remember her in "The Prime of Miss Brody"? She has the best lines in Downton Abbey, too! How she can carry off her lines without bursting out laughing, I'll never know...they probably have to have many takes.

I also loved the movie. I felt right at home, as I spent a month in India several years ago. A different region of India, but there was a lot of the ambiance which felt just like I was there again. And the case was perfect. I love Judy Dench.

And I knew someone who would not buy green bananas.

Now I will read the other comments.
