That actually sounds pretty nice. Cheese + anything= good!

How’s SW going Becky?

I think I might be naughty and George foreman a bacon cheese burger!

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:13 PM

I agree Emma. Cheese is life!

It's going really well thanks!
Had a really good few weeks especially.

Oooo that sounds so yummy!!

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:15 PM

Enjoy your burger Emma.

I’ve put my dinner in the oven.

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:15 PM

Love cheese!

Glad SW is going well, it’s always really nice to have a few good losses too.

Got work tomorrow so no doubt I’ll eat crap there too cos we don’t have a kitchen!

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:15 PM

Thanks sketchy! Enjoy your dinner too :-)

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:15 PM

Oh, well, I was looking forward to my fishcakes until you mentioned cheese... How mean of you, Emma! :P


I should really put my dinner on, but I sat down when I got in from work and haven't moved since...

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:16 PM

I wish I had cheese

Look what you've started Emma :tongue2:

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:16 PM

Haha! At least you have an excuse Aubergine- you’ve been hard at work all day!

Love a good fishcake as well lok

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:17 PM

Mwahahahaha, cheese is everything! ����

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:18 PM

Haha, I guess that's true! Five day weekend now though! :D AND I've only got to work one Friday in March because I have annual leave to take. Exciting, because Fridays are horrible. :P


You can have my fishcake if I can have your cheeseburger?

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:19 PM

I love cheese. I had crackers and cheese for lunch, which the cat tried to steal.

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:21 PM

Naughty cat! Bet she's too cute to get cross with though. :)

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:21 PM

She is. I gave her some treats and she was happy.

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:22 PM

What are you planning to do with your 5 days off Aubergine?

Cheese isn't very SW friendly unfortunately but I'll have some if I make fajitas tomorrow!
Everything in moderation!
(Although I could easily eat an entire block of cheese...)

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:23 PM

I’m the same Beckie. I love cheese. I think today I’ve exceeded my cheese allowance but I don’t even feel guilty!

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:26 PM

Cheese and wine are my Achilles heels :-(. Especially together. Luckily my kitten now assists with the cheese consumption!

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:26 PM

No need to feel guilty!
Cheese is awesome

Ooo cheese and wine is a good combo

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:30 PM

Cheese and wine together is awesome!! A lovely glass of Rioja wine. That would be bliss.

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:32 PM

Merlot for me, please.

Who am I kidding, get out the Echo Falls and pilsner. :D

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:32 PM

You've got cheese and cats. I have no cheese and no cat. STOP IT. :P


I jest, I will get my cheese and cat one day!

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:33 PM

Ooh a merlot is nice too.

I hope you get your cheese and cat Aubergine.

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:34 PM

Cheese + cats = life goals

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:35 PM

I'm just kidding, I'm a recovering alcoholic. Hence it's a Friday night and I'm at home when everyone else is out getting pissed.

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:36 PM

I know, right, Beckie?! One day, yes?!


I don't like wine much. Rather enjoy a spritzer occasionally though. :)

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:36 PM

Congratulations on your recovery! My Uncle is 7 months sober.

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:38 PM

I like a bit of prosecco!
Cant drink red wine anymore.
Gives me headaches!

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:39 PM

I'm not recovered, I just talk a good game. I struggle with other substances, I'm just switching one for another.

*Scrolling through cat memes looking for something entertaining to post*

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:41 PM

Terex wine also gives me headaches- Sauvignon blanc on the other hand.... ��

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:42 PM

Recovery from one is still a victory.

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:42 PM

That must be hard freeatlast, but there are many people here who can relate. You don’t have to be alone.

In the meantime, we can distract you here. We always seem to talk about food. What did you have for dinner?

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:43 PM

Any white wine tastes OK in a spritzer.

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:43 PM

True, and I'm a lot better than I was. I have an amphetamine habit so if I'm still here in eight hours posting you know why.

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:44 PM

I hope you can reach out for help.

Aubergine 26-01-2018 09:44 PM

I put my dinner in! I cheated and bought ready made mashed potato. Oops.

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:45 PM

I am shocked Aubergine!!
Ready made?!?!
:p

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:47 PM

Ready made mash is nice. I love mash.

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:48 PM

It could be worse - it could be smash.

Cacoethes 26-01-2018 09:48 PM

Same. Especially sweet potato mash! Nom

Im off to bed guys.
See you tomorrow!

Pomegranate 26-01-2018 09:49 PM

Night night Becky!

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:50 PM

Goodnight, sleep well!

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:50 PM

Goodnight Beckie. Sleep well.

Smash is yucky! I prefer Asda’s own make of instant mash.

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:52 PM

I can honestly say I've never bought ready-made mash. I do love tinned new potatoes though.

Sketchy 26-01-2018 09:53 PM

I love potatoes in general. It’s one of my comfort foods.

Cheryl88 26-01-2018 09:56 PM

I'm currently on a "diet". I was put on a depot and gained weight so now I'm trying to lose weight again. Most of the weight gain was caused by beer. Aldi's own brand called Steinhäuser, it's nice.

nonperson 26-01-2018 10:01 PM

Shepherds pie in the oven!

At long effing last... "An hour to prepare", MY ARSE.

Aubergine 26-01-2018 10:01 PM

It doesn't seem two minutes ago that I put dinner in the oven and I now somehow have to get dinner OUT. This life stuff is effort, even with ready made mash... ;)

Aubergine 26-01-2018 10:02 PM

Well done, Person!

nonperson 26-01-2018 10:03 PM

I also probably should have halved the recipe. I've literally got a tonne of it!

Aubergine 26-01-2018 10:04 PM

Whoops! Food for tomorrow?

nonperson 26-01-2018 10:04 PM

Who wants feeding tonight? Dinner's on me!

Except Lorraine cos it's real meat. =(
