Full English breakfast has always been one of the things I've found strangest about British culture...

I know, right? Our national dish is chicken tikka masala - it makes no sense!

But that is actually, like, good/tasty food.

Of course, I'll always associate English breakfast with the morning I arrived in Land's End after a 26 hour bus ride that had me throwing up stomach acid before the end of it, and then nearly got sick again just by the look of English breakfast...

Hahah

Yeah, it's not very appetising. As a student, I once lived with a guy from Yorkshire (an important distinction, I can assure you) who ate microwaveable chicken korma every day for breakfast. The smell...

I love cooking. It's my passion. And very often I cook too much. That's why my fridge is full of containers, I order them on https://allinpackaging.co.uk/food-packaging/ 'cause it's very profitably. And all of them are of good quality.

Looking for a good recipe that utilizes hot Italian sausage but doesn't include pasta.

I have a nice pasta/sausage recipe but I'm trying to cut the breads and pasta out of my diet.


Also I have a lovely recipe for Mexican-style chicken I shall post later.

The main way that I utilize most meat is as an add-in to other things. For sausage I'd recommend building a soup around it. Lentil soup with sausage is amazing.

Left my phone at work so I couldn't take a photo of it. Came out good, but VERY spicy.



I have a chicken dish from the other night I will try to post later, plus I'm doing a no-shellfish jumbalaya for dinner tonight.
