Eating out.

On our travels within the Island we often eat out at a restaurant having a light lunch or a buy sandwiches or a pastie and eat the latter two in the vehicle or at a picnic table. We both enjoy these outings immensely.  Never have been one to take photos of the food we eat, I remembered to recently with my phone.

Never used to eat sweets once as in dessert, but lately I do but it does depend on what the dessert is..
I find it interesting about the cutlery for dessert down this end of the world.  I prefer to use a fork for dessert which is odd, but, when the table is set there is never a fork, just a spoon so I always have to ask.  Then when visiting other peoples houses for dinner in the evening, there is never a fork with dessert, so off I go again, asking.
I always have a spoon and a fork at home, and so did my parents.  What do you have?



This is Chicken and Prawn Wonton which was delicious and certainly not filling.


So into the ice cream and chocolate topping (3 scoops), then I had had enough to eat till dinner time.

    You are not a glutton, are you????
    I'd give the main course a miss - no appeal whatsoever - BUT
    course #2 - move over "Honey child" - bugger the spoon and fork! ha ha.
    However, I don't think I would stoop to the food eating of that "no-necked
    monster kid" in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". My manners are a bit more correct
    than that "brat". ha ha.

    Previous topiary blog: They are so magnificent, pity we don't see more of this
    gardening "dedication here" but I guess time is a problem of PATIENCE and DEDICATION.
    Have seen some in the Hunter Valley and the first I ever saw was at the magnificent
    resort Hotel at Hua Hin in Thailand - the Sofitel Central.
    Now if you want a luxury holiday and see old World Charm - this place is a must.
    Google and look.

    Now back to my beloved tennis!!!
    Cheers

  2. Always a fork and spoon. But sometimes a dinner fork and a salad/dessert fork. Looks like you might need a spoon for that ice cream! Yummy!

  3. No dessert fork? How does one eat dessert or cake without a fork? A spoon and fork are required to eat dessert. As an unfilling snack, the won ton looks delicious. What a presentation.

    1. No fork, I know it's weird Andrew, and I for the life of me can't understand why people don't set a fork a dessert one at the table. The Wonton snack was lovely, would have it again.
