Mmmm, healthy – one packet of prawn cocktail crisps for lunch, oh I am a temple of healthy eating aren’t I? I’m desperately trying to do the right thing when it comes to eating, but nine times out of ten I’m far to lazy to bother. I don’t have time to go home and cook myself something healthy for lunch today, and I’ve not got time to queue for the bank, so it’s a toss up between eating out, which is expensive, or using the spare change I have in my pocket… I’ve got another 78 pence left, If I’m careful I could run to a mars bar as well?
The thing is I love cooking, there is no place I’m happier than experimenting in the kitchen, everything from toad in the hole with wine poached sausages and creamy mashed potatoes with a selection of winter vegetables to spicy lasagna with home made garlic loaves, I love it all, and at the moment you can’t keep me away from my brand new kitchen as I’ll happily slave over the cooker for hours in order to get the meal I want… but having said that, it does mean that when it comes to working lunches I sometimes feel very lost… I could bring sandwiches to work, but that would mean bringing a bag, and at the moment that’s something I don’t do, I could do Pret and Bengy’s for lunch, but I’d have to remortgage the house if I wanted to get something filling, or I could wander onto Old Compton Street and get something from Dukes Bar or La Creperie but that would mean going out in the rain: and I can’t be bothered to do that either…. I think it’s time to start hiring a skivvy to get my lunch for me!
