I think it is a grey ground Julius rather than black and white, so we may agree to disagree on this one Smile

You could be right. If only you'd stuck to sonoluminescence, it definitely would have merited a round of applause. As it is, I'm not sure my conscient will allow it.

F*cking hell, and people get bored of arthropod talk.  This is soporific stuff.

Very true Tina, this talk is making me realise how nugatory my many rants against the insect talk have been.

Tina, as you know I like you, but please bear in mind not all of us can secure a table at The Fat Duck an hour before we want to arrive. Sneering at the great unwashed is better left to top hat, you're better than that.

Take more than a penchant for all things retro to make that thing fashionable.

Tech by Tumi is not retro. It is state of the art technology although the hood is a bit lightweight and a bugger to tuck back in to the collar. Need Galted's advice on managing that.

Ignore their bitchiness, michaels, they're buffoons.  Russian women like the Galted look which is far more important to me than gaining the approval of a selection of xenophobic northerners.  Together, with our water-resistant yet breathable jackets, we shall conquer Europe.

I will, it is like water off a 'Tech by Tumi's' back. How's the throat? I never get ill but make the missus a liquid contrivance that usually works. You need a tablespoon of honey, the juice of one lemon, thumbsized piece of ginger (grated), tea spoon of brown sugar and 2 or 3 sage leaves. Cover with hot (not boiling water), stir and sip away. Should be right in no time. I also have a recipe for congestion if you require that?

Mushroom risotto soup and crusty baguette from Pret a Manger

Taste 4/5: exquisite, outstanding texture and consistency to boot.
Health 4/5: ordinarily this would have scored only a 3 but it soothed my sore throat (michaels,  thumbsup) and the bread, once soaked in the soup, proved quite heavenly.  Although not laden with obvious health benefits the entire package was relatively low in calories (460)
Cost: 3/5: fairly expensive (the soup was £3.25 and the baguette 50p) but it did come in an attractive paper bag (with handles) and the soup cup was lidded.  A plastic spoon is obtainable at no extra cost although I was slightly disappointed that Muju (the Pret staff member who served me) failed to mention this.  For £3.75 Rowley could have bought an anvil and 2 leather aprons.

Overall 4/5. I would recommend this unconditionally, especially to those suffering sore throats.  The soup was consistently warm without being scalding and the thickness, although almost chewable, was not pronounced enough to further torment the infected throat (michaels,  thumbsup ).  I was particularly thrilled that the baguette came with a separately wrapped square of butter which was rather delicious.  Sore throat or not, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again, especially when the weather is sh1t.

That is the best one yet.

One question, has your infected throat left you with halitosis?

I'm not sure, Tino, my nose is too clogged with snot to notice but no-one's complained (not to my face, anyway).

Excellent review Galted. I've just had a banana. It tasted very much like a banana.

I'm sure you're fine, just checking.

Very good review though. Was Muju male or female?

Male. He looked terrifically smart in his Pret uniform, his hair is most curly.

Very good review, sounds heavenly indeed.

For the nose you need a bottle of tomato juice, teaspoon of worcester sauce, tea spoon of hot horse radish, tea spoon of english mustard and a dash of tobasco and a dash of sugar to taste.

Your health hints are much appreciated, michaels, but my cupboard and fridge are pretty much restricted to some Philadelphia lightest, various microwaveable rice varieties, jalapenos and chicken stock. The jalapenos might work.

Go to a wetherspoon's style pub and order a tomato juice. Seat yourself near the condiments stand and make hay!

Fun fact about halitosis: The word was made up by a famous mouthwash company who re-branded a cleaning product, and needed to convince the public that it was needed to battle an ailment. Previously no such thing i believe.

Chicken and bacon pie with some mashed potato, green beans and sweetcorn. No dessert as I intend to eat either a Wagon wheel or Taxi bar in the next minutes.

It was rather nice, and very warming on such a miserable day. Some of the meat was suspicious in both taste and texture but I am going to trust the chef that it was bacon and/or chicken.

Not really sure on the nutritional value but the taste was acceptable and the portion size was plentiful. The cost was zero as our canteen is free. I may or may not have mentioned that before.

The sole reason for the muffin top or a reason amongst many?
