Festive Menu.

When my chum Terry (St Theresa of the Floral Tribute), suggested we go to our local supermarket for a special Sunday Christmas lunch; I was, frankly, a wee bit wary.

We started off with a pleasant Kir Royale, accompanied by a few dainty 'Amuse bouches'.

Then on to an interesting salad of raw Scollops with Mango.

And a main course of what amounted to Beef Wellington, with a perfectly cooked, sauce-covered, steak.

We finished up with a very sweet desert (not really my thing), and a good cup of strong coffee.

Through a slight mistake in the wine order, we ended up with a superb Pomerol, and some standard pink. The Pomerol was wonderful.

As you can probably just make-out from the menu, this cost a staggering €13.50 per person  (£11.30, $17.50).

Hardly worth the bother of cooking!

  2. It's amazing what you can do with a few left-overs. Steak on toast - who'd of thought it?

  7. The wine sounds excellent! The market where I shop only has take out food, except when little samples of food they want you to buy are given out!

  9. Excellent value. I know it's a very popular place for lunch- not just with shoppers. Did you go round with your trolley afterwards? (Can you be drunk in charge of a shopping trolley?)
