    The perfect lunch

    I think that I have just invented the perfect lunch (for me) - filling, yummy and not too expensive (dirt-cheap actually).

    Yesterday, at the supermarket, they had avocados which were a little soft, reduced to 40 pence each. They also had big bags of bacon pieces at about 1 a kilo.

    I bought one of each, together with a crusty wholemeal loaf.

    I just took a couple of hundred grams of the bacon pieces and fried them in a wok with a little sesame oil, shoved them on a plate with half an avocado, cut a huge slice of the crusty bread and I was away (burp).

    Preparation time 10 minutes, eating time ages.

    Well, what's YOUR idea of the perfect lunch?

    As I'm traditional, I had a pub lunch about 3 months ago which hit the nail on the head but it was not as cheap as that (:O).

    14oz T-bone steak
    Plate of chips
    Peas
    Pints of local bitter (the name escapes me but was quite tasty)

    Wellington Fudge with chocolate ice-cream

    Was only 15 for all that

    For cheapness' sake, 7,000,000 Turkish lira for a proper Turkish kebab, chips, peas and a pint of Efes beer (local beer for Alanya)

    Conversion rate is roughly 2,200,000 Turkish lira to 1

    I am a big fan of liquid lunches.

    Must say, I am partial to a bit of Steak though.

    Shoulder Bacon fry it heaps in a pan with oil until it all the fat comes out and covers it and you can smell it..
    Add some thin sliced tomatoes to it..
    Add some scrambled eggs to it
    Add some good quality tomato sauce all over to top it all up

    That is it!

    Probably a salad sandwich. Pasta does me as well.

    Hmmm...pasta, salad sarnie (Greek Salad Sarnie just like the salad but in a sarnie...yum!), cheese on toast with bbq sauce (it's oddly tastey), chili/garlic/mixed pickle sarnies, toasted cheese and branston pickle sarnie...dammit I'm hungry now!
