Although, recently, I think it’s too easy.
Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a health kick, and trying to vary my basic “chicken and chips” diet with…errr….”chicken and potatoes”. To be honest, it’s not that I’m morbidly obese or want to look good in a bikini in the summer, it’s largely due to the fact that my housemates were getting sick of my constant flatulence. So much so that farting – which was a badge of honour in the house – had become unbearable. A few lifestyle changes (such as brown bread and Fruit and Fibre) have curtailed the problem and Guy has taken over the title he’s held for the past 3 years as “The Smelliest Arse in the house”. He’s also a Chelsea fan.
Anyway, I digress. One of the factors for the new “Make Rhys smell less diet” is “varied diet”. So, out the window goes the “ham salad” sarnies for work 5 times a week and the staple sandwich of the Manchester United fan: Prawn Sadwiches. It was kind of a whim thing, as I saw the following product on sale in Asda.*
I’m not having a go at Asda, as I presume it’s not the only chain guilty of this. But seriously, Â£1.08 for prawn mayo spread? I wouldn’t mind, but I have made a grand total of 3 sandwiches from it! You could buy a tub of mayonaise for about Â£1, a bag of frozen prawns for about Â£2 and it would make tons of prawn mayo! I think I’ll do that from now on.
I think society as a whole is pretty damn lazy, I’ve never understood buying those pre-washed vegetables from supermarkets, and (although I usually buy pasta and curry sauces) also I rarely buy ready meals. I’m amazed that people I work with think that because I walk to work every day (about 45 minutes) is like scaling mount everest. I dunno, it just strikes me as odd.
That being said, it is pretty damn tasty prawn mayo.
In other news, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I can give up for lent. Anybody who knows me have any ideas? If anybody says “give up giving up”, I will hunt you down and give you a chinese burn.
