Natural eggs

Thursday 12th May 2022, 12.25pm (day 3,913)

Natural eggs, 12/5/22

Life becomes increasingly homogenised, and every egg you buy from the shop now seems to be brown. But Clare gets eggs from someone she works with, who has a farm in Calderdale, one of those where you risk running over truly free-range chickens if you drive past, and she doesn’t add dye to their feed to get the desired level of brownness. I love the gentle blue colour of this one, and pure white is also often seen. (And brown too, as you see with the other one.)

Under surveillance, 11/12/21

“I don’t care what my lot are doing. You’re eating. They’re not. I’m going to stare at you for a while.”

Street food

Thursday 4th November 2021, 12.10pm (day 3,724)

Street food, 4/11/21

As being made by the guy on the “Dosa” stall in St. George’s Square, Hebden Bridge, this lunchtime. I did eat my lunch out today, although not here. Although this is a little out of focus, I like the mixture of colours and textures on this shot.

Birthday person

Tuesday 26th October 2021, 1.10pm (day 3,715)

Clare on birthday, 26/10/21

As this blog cycles (seemingly endlessly) around the calendar there are certain fixed points, and 26th October is one of them — Clare’s birthday. Here she is celebrating it with lunch in the White Lion — her parents, my in-laws, unseen to the left. Happy happies to her: I shall demur from reporting the exact number, but it’s several years fewer than me, anyway.

Late lunch

Monday 4th October 2021, 2.50pm (day 3,693)

White Swan, 4/10/21

Do I spend too much time in bars and caf├ęs? Maybe it’s whatever Mediterranean genes I have in me. I was working, honest. This is a photowhack — the only picture I took today.

The invisible diners

Saturday 31st July 2021, 1.30pm (day 3,628)

Invisible diners, 31/7/21

Witnessed in the Miners’ Arms, Garforth, near Leeds, this lunchtime. They did eventually arrive in person to consume their lunches; which if they were as good as ours were, were worth the wait (mild, unsolicited advertising).

And so ends July 2021, a month of refreshing normality, and the last complete calendar month before this blog reaches the end of its tenth year, on 25th August.

Mum gets things ready

Sunday 29th December 2019, 12.35pm (day 3,048)

Mum prepares, 29/12/19

‘Twas the day of the annual family gathering at my parents’. Perhaps one of these days soon my Mum will allow someone else to take on the principal role at such events, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Lunch, Emirati-style

Tuesday 26th March 2019, 12.10pm (day 2,770)

Dubai lunch, 26/3/19

Regardless of anything else that has ever happened on any of my trips to the Middle East — I have never come away complaining about the food in any way. In my opinion — the nicest cuisine in the world…

Clare awaits her lunch

Friday 25th January 2019, 1.40pm (day 2,710)

Clare at Carluccios, 25/1/19

The liquid refreshment has arrived, at least. A slightly late lunch…. but it’s nice to be on a weekend away. These two factors explain C’s look of contentment.

Taken out for lunch

Wednesday 10th January 2018, 1.30pm (day 2,330)

Lunch in Squeeze, 10/1/18

I confidently predict January 2018 will play itself out without a great deal happening in any way. Being taken out for lunch (by the wife) was the main event of the day…
