Expensive but it was nice!

To be honest nice is an understatement!

Last Saturday I took a couple of friends to lunch at Jamie Olivers Italian restaurant at Canary Wharf in London's Docklands. This is an area of London which is not in my normal orbit, in fact last time I was there it was docks with ships and dockers! Now I do not think I could even afford to live there!

Anyway the lunch was rather awesome, nothing special just a main dish, desert and a couple of drinks and the bill came to £55. However the quality of the food was rather fantastic, you wanted to eat it slowly and savour every morsel. In fact one of my friends wanted to lick the plate (don't worry we did not let him)! For me the highlight was the chocolate, raspberry and amaretto brownie served with Bourbon ice cream mmmmmmmm

Yes it was expensive but worth every penny!

Tomorrow afternoon I get the result of my latest scan so as usual I am getting rather worried about the result. I am sure it will be fine but at 3 in the morning you have doubts.

What a marvellous meal out you had Andy! Some meals I have had are a shame to eat, as they look like works of art. lol
I can see where your friend was coming from wanting to lick the plate. haha!
You wouldn't be normal if you didn't begin to worry about your results tomorrow.
I wish you all the best tomorrow. I'm saying a wee prayer for you into the bargain too.
God bless.

Yum, that sounds delish! Jamie Oliver is starting a new show here in the States about teaching people to eat and cook healthily and properly. It sounds interesting.

I hope you get a good report! Hugs, Beth

Jeanie is right - you wouldn't be normal if you didn't worry and at 3am there's not much else to do. There was an inscription on something on an antiques programme today: "Keep your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind"

love, Angie, xx

If you are not willing to allow me lick the plate that you offer then do not ask me to dine :))
