I got a battered sausage in La Souterraine last night and some food after.
I hope your sausage is better today.

Any battered Mars bars available ?
Sadly not Nifty, more disappointingly Chris declines to do Scots pies, which is my favourite option in a proper Scottish chippys!
Incidentally, has anyone ever actually eaten a deep-fried Mars bar?
Sounds disgusting ;)

In spite of eating a Mars a day, or some other Mars product for a couple of years in my early teens,
I never got to try one fried.

Do they exist outside the imagination of a Sun journalist. I've spent a bit of time in Scotland and never seen one nor do I know anyone who has.
I've seen jellies eels and work scratchings though.

Far more than buying the frozen breaded colin from Lidl and making your own proper chips to go with it.
How do you that when you are 200 odd kms from home? :lol:
When I'm away from home all I can think of is getting back in one piece. When the on board sandwiches and snacks run out it serves to focus the mind on the driving. ;)

The shape of that object looks just like the poisson pané that they sell in Lidl for the kids,.........................................I know that decent poisson pané does exist, Birds Eye make fish fingers where the fish flakes as a proper fillet would and I have seen proper blocks of pané produced at Boulogne from whole fish pieces, I hope thats what was inside your cartoon fish shape, the other stuff is horrendous.

Did it at least seem like proper fish inside?
Do you not have friend that catches battered fish ;)
That reminds me. I had a friend in Poole that as an enterprising youth used to go to the fish wholesaler there and buy a crate of smoked mackeral. He sold them to the grockles at the Quay in a borrowed dinghy. He said they loved buying stuff direct from the fisherman. :lol:

Not so convinced that it was more than enough for a meal for 2 hard working builders, an amuse bouche perhaps.
I agree, we are fatties and would have wanted a portion each! Which would come to €44 :o :o :o :o :o or €55 before my eldest got stranded in Holland at lockdown :lol: :lol: :lol:

And my middle piggy complains when dh and I nip out once or twice a year for lunch without the kids. Errr yeah coz we can't afford it!!!
