Favourite "Ping" Meal.

Postby Eggs'n'nuts on Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:07 pm

Now I know there's quite a few budding Tom Kerridge's on this site and by the sounds of it you can knock up a pretty decent bit of grub, but there must be the odd occasion when you just can't be bothered to get the pots and pans out and you pop down to the local supermarket/corner shop and grab a "ping" meal.

So with that in mind, what's your favourite indulgence? Mine's a Marks and Spencer Chicken saag masala from their Indian range. As far as I'm concerned, it's up there with, if not better than some of the Indian takeaways. Yours?

Big fan of the M&S Indian takeaway range.

Really tasty.

Asda used to do a really nice Chicken Biryani, but I haven't seen it in there for ages.

Fair shout jastons, though I do tend to stick that sort of thing in the oven. I'm more on the lines of the meals you stab the f**k out of the lid and chuck in the pinger for four minutes.

Living on Skye we've been restricted to the Coop until around 4 years ago when a lady campaigned for Asda to come to Skye with their vans , then Tesco decided to join in - so now we have a choice of three different supermarkets from which to buy stuff .

Having lived just outside of Elgin since last October , it's been a bit of an eye opener as to how other people live - Tesco , Asda , Lidl , Aldi and M&S are all in Elgin as well as any number of takeaways .

Anyway , that wasn't really the question was it - since living near Elgin we mainly cook from scratch apart for a takeaway once a month or so - I do remember the Coop doing a very nice Lamb Rogon Josh though .

I'm going to be paying M&S a visit very soon .

Haven't got a ping machine. Don't particularly miss not having one.
Very handy though, I know.

As a rule, I don't use a microwave for meals, just heating up milk on breakfast cereals, hot milk drinks, cold cups of tea etc.

I don't have any mircowave foods in my fridge/freezer come to think of it and can't think of the last time I bought one.

Ahhh brown rice/Quinoia/or rice with peppers/beans etc. When I'm in a rush, I'll chop up a quick salad, and throw in lots of hot rice from a packet that Tilda and other rice companies make. Cut a hole in the top, power up the MW on max for two mins and - ping - hot brown rice. Much better than cooking the bloody stuff for 40 mins.

I do 90% of the cooking at ourplace, and like to cook from scratch( nothing special, just meatballs, pastry, that sort of stuff) but weirdly ( quelle surprise) I rarely eat meals I've cooked, so I love the microwave, especially pre-cooked rice ( spicy Mexican ,49p Home Bargains), few frozen prawns, big squirt of Flying Goose......job done in 6 or 7 minutes.

Surprised the amount of people heating up cold tea in a microwave. That offence should be punishable by 30 years imprisonment with hard labour.

Luckily, we have a Sicilian street food place down the road from us. All fresh and made on the day so you never know what they'll have in on the day, whatever Nunzio has decided to make, but I like that.

The best arancini this side of Palermo. :thup:
