So, what's for lunch?

From one seasider to another, I appreciate these posts.

I made fish and chips the other day. No pics sadly. You will have to trust me, it's as good as the huts.

I live in Brighton but rarely go to the seaside cuz of my crippling depression (plus rn it's freezing) 😅 🤣 🤣 🤣

I had cheese and biscuits for dinner :) Dolcelatte and a Morrison's selection of six types of crackers :)

Heinz Big Soup Chicken and Vegetable with added butter and a slice of wholemeal toast - I didn't make it and it's not fancy but it is me taking better care of myself than I have been and that is worthy of note :)

Wow! I live in Brighton too. What a small world! Or maybe just a small country because we are mostly UK on the UK forum.

Today for lunch I made mushrooms on toast. I have them with parsley, sourdough bread, and cook them on a very high heat. This is a really nice and easy lunch to make.

I made a prawn curry for dinner. It was okay. I used a tin of chopped tomatos and it really made the taste not so good. In future I will have to make sure to use fresh tomatoes.

So I was out with a couple friends at that same Beanie's Bar we go to regularly, and instead of my usual Guinness, I tried a new brew from the UK that tasted really good, but I've never heard of it before - Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. Is that beverage or the brewery well-known over there at all? Just curious about it, need to hear from some local experts on this, lol. I was interested on whether it's brewed year round, or perhaps it's only a seasonal thing, for a few months of the year? The label says brewed at the oldest brewery in Yorkshire, in Tadcaster. Here are a few pics of the label:

I don't drink alcohol myself but I feel like I've heard the name mentioned before at least once? Glad you enjoyed it at any rate :)

I actually had that beer a few months ago (in my never-ending pursuit of tasting all types of beer) @Girls with Guns and found it quite delicious! I've seen they've got a few other fruity types which I'm eager to try.

I had this the other day, but the blue one instead (not my picture, found it on the net):

12.5% alcohol so it packs a real punch (I can't hold my alcohol anyway) but it has an amazing taste of chocolate, vanilla and caramel. My only regret is not drinking it even colder. It's from Austria if I recall.

Another of my favorites (maybe the one, for now) is La Trappe Quadruppel. It's incredible.

Never heard of it. Had a Google and it seems it's only sold at certain specialist shops and not in regular supermarkets or even popular chains that sell only alcoholic drinks. The nearest is 30 miles away from me.

There's 1 left on Amazon UK:

And on their website there's a link for US stockists:

OK, must be made in smaller batches, it's a wonder it even made it's way over here to the US, lol. Thanks for doing some research on it. It definitely was extremely tasty, so I may have to see if I can buy it by the case over here, I'll have to ask the bartender where they get theirs. Probably costs $100 for a case of 24, lol.

EDIT: So I found I can buy it in a 4-pack of 12 oz bottles, for $12 each, at a beer distributor less than 10 miles from my house - so a "case" would still run me $72 - Maybe I'll just buy two 4-packs for now, next time I'm down that way. For that price, I wish it was a bit higher in alcohol content, like 8-10%, to make it a little more "useful," lol... 😅
