Could you beat up the eggs so that you got more of a scrambled effect, no creepy yolks for Gus?

Oh, I forgot to mention that the kippers were in a white sauce, so you can imagine how rib-sticking, what with the eggs, the butter in the sauce, the oil in the kippers and I suppose more butter for cooking the omelette. We all had cast-iron stomachs, luckily. I must ask LadySusan if she remembers. She survived, I can confirm that.

This is veering strongly in the direction of omelette Arnold Bennett*

The important thing in chocolate isn’t the sugar or the grease. It’s got theobromine as well.

I doubt that would be adequate to cope with drinking tea/beer/wine/gin/whatever all day, but you are thinking along the right lines there Gus. There are some things other people just can’t do for you, no matter how hard you try to persuade them.

Think I’m going to enjoy dinner tonight. Leg of lamb, potatoes (roast + boiled in skins), sparrergrass, carrots…

…and just to wash it down:

(It was supposed to be for Christmas dinner in 2018 - I bought it the day before I went into hospital and have been looking for an excuse to broach it ever since)
