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!
Aside from the prawns, bacon, scollops and steak that looks great to me!ReplyDelete
It's amazing what you can do with a few left-overs. Steak on toast - who'd of thought it?ReplyDelete
And where does one eat in a supermarket Cro... the patio furniture aisle?ReplyDelete
Was it for charity?ReplyDelete
It probably should have been, Delores. It wasn't THAT wonderful.ReplyDelete
Gosh, that looks posh and reasonable too.ReplyDelete
What a swizz! Somebody's already taken a massive bite out of the bread! Did you send it back?ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
those small aquariums are nice!!!!!ReplyDelete
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?)ReplyDelete
No Sue.... I went home and had a power nap! It was our first visit to the resto.ReplyDelete
