And the urge I couldn't resist

We had a lovely weekend with Younger Son and Nuora who came to stay. On Saturday we had lunch in Verdi's.  I honestly really and truly intended to just have ice cream but everyone else wanted sandwiches so, after checking to make sure they were planning on having ice cream after, I had soup and foccacia. Followed by apple crumble and honeycomb ice creams with a flake and cream. Then they wanted to go for a buffet lunch on Sunday so we invited ourselves along to that too.

Buffet lunches are ideal for someone like me who can never decide what to have and then quite often regrets it: I wish I'd had what he had, I think about Husband's meal. Or the stranger's on  the next table. So buffets, where you can wander around at leisure and take a little bit of this and a little bit of that, suit me perfectly.

After several plates of starters and a stir fry I had a plate of chips. I excused myself thus:
I don't have chips very often;
these are nice chips;
I'm 60 and I don't have to worry what anyone thinks!

I redeemed myself afterwards with a plate of melon, pineapple and water melon. Followed by banana fritter, profiteroles and ice cream ...

When I got home I rolled onto the sofa and watched television I'd recorded over Christmas for the rest of the afternoon. A pretty good way to spend a weekend I feel.

Nice chips are a joy, aren't they? I rather like the Canadian habit of serving them with gravy and melted cheese! Heart attack on a plate, I know, but loooovely!

Soup and focaccia sounds good too - and much more healthy!

What sort of Buffet was it? sounds like Chinese .. maybe not.

No way would I eat the chips the Canadian way, I cannot remember the name but I did have a "taste" when there.. not for me.
