What’s On your plate ?

I thought we could have a space where we shared what we’ve had for lunch - No Numbers or specific amounts just a place to share something yummy we have .

I for one often struggle for inspiration for things to make. Especially if I’m not really in the mood for cooking

For example today I had this and it was surprisingly really yummy. I’m not actually a veggie/vegan but there really wasn’t much difference between this and a normal kebab . I had it with some lettuce , cucumber and yoghurt and mint sauce.

    I think I have actually tried that vegan kebab meat before and it was very very nice actually. I would reccomend it. I haven't got any pics of what I had tonight but I had hunters chicken, salad, jacket potato and garlic bread which was super yum! :yum:

    Vivera do a really great bacon alternative too, and THIS do great vegan bacon and new vegan sausages which taste amazing.

    I had the most boring dinner tonight because I was constricted on time so I just had some carrots and cucumber sticks with humous :') but I made a really nice smoothie which was kiwi, pear, pomegranate, spinach, celery, lemon juice and water which was really tasty!

    I've been meaning to try Vivera's stuff. Big fan of THIS - I had their chicken tenders for the first time the other weekend and was absolutely in love with them (esp with buffalo sauce).

    On the vegan train, I had a Plant Pioneers tikka masala today and it slapped. Super cheap for a meal like that too - only £2.75. I think they do a korma but it wasn't there today.

    @Mike I’m not actually a veggie/vegan but this seemed interesting to try so I thought why not and it was super good and a healthier alternative to a traditional kebab ! Defo one to have again

    I just had some homemade gyros with fries that my mom made, it was delicious :yum:

    I don't want to sound stupid but I hope you guys know what it is. I don't recall ever seeing or hearing about gyros in the uk.

    ooo I love this discussion idea! If I'm being honest I was pretty unhealthy today. I had mcdonalds for dinner. Nothing beats chicken nuggets, especially when there's nothing else in the house.
    Didn't have time to do a food shop but going tomorrow morning, hopefully i'll be able to report some more interesting meals later this week lol.

    I have heard of gyros actually and I really want to try them. I think they originate from Greece I believe. I don't know wether this is true but the Mcdonalds in Greece apparently sell gyros as one of the main meals you can get.

    Speaking of what was on my plate tonight, I had chicken fajitas, (The El Paso Kit's are so good, but they make the tortillas wraps too small now).

    Wait what? Now that is something I'd always buy when going there!
    I've done some research and I can't find this, I've found something similar. Its called a Greek Mac (?) And looks almost like a burger inside a pita wrap, it does say gyro somewhere in the description tho. Maybe this is what you meant.

    I'd like to show an image from the web of roughly what mine looked like but I have no clue how.

    Also, the chicken fajitas look awesome! I should probably try them at some point.

    @Amy22 yea, that is exactly what I found. It honestly sounds really good but looks kinda mediocre. Its very different to what I had.

    I've found an image of roughly what my meal looked like, I also had a lot of garlic sauce on it...

    And speaking of unique fast food items has anyone heard of tacos from KFC? I've had them during one summer in Poland and really loved them but they were discontinued shortly after :confused:

    This image is actually kinda nostalgic.
    They definitely look better on this image than they actually are haha

    Just tried Eds Dinners microwave Mac and Cheese Burger. It was nice, I'd say ill give it a 8/10 rating as the mac and cheese was okay. The burger did kinda taste funny but it was a nice treat to have today.

    This gave me a cool idea. What if we created a thread (or do it here idk) where we just review different food items and give them a rating?

    @JJLemon18 Aw yes that would be an awesome idea! It would be fun to rate food or things we try. Actually I might make a thread for this :) thanks for the awesome idea!
