The Sprouts of Wrath

December 14th, 2011 · Posted by Skuds in Life · 2 Comments · Life

It was xmas lunch day in the canteen at work today. As usual the staff there put a lot of work into the preparation, presentation and cooking, and while our canteen is never going to get any Michelin stars it was a good mealespecially for only a few quid. And yet I was a little disappointed. The sweet potato and lemon grass soup was delicious, the xmas pud was filling in a way that seemed to defy the laws of physics but the main course…

It was described as turkey “with all the trimmings” and came with gravy, roast spuds, stuffing, sausages wrapped in bacon, carrots and… brocolli. I like brocolli, but surely this is an occasion for sprouts! I am not a great one for traditions, I would happily have a stir-fry on xmas day, but if you are going to do the turkey thing then you must have sprouts. I had been looking forward to those sprouts, and to releasing them back into the wild at intervals throughout the rest of the day.

At least I got to wear a paper hat for an hour or two. That is something I suppose.

    I still can’t get Rob to knowingly eat sprouts. Maybe a new years resolution in the making?

    I don’t understand how anybody can not like the blessed baby cauliflowers.

    EDIT – I meant baby cabbages obviously.
