For the rest of your life, what would it be?

I think I’m a C. Chocolate, cheese (& crackers), chicken, chips/crisps. Also all the good veg - corn, carrots, celery, cucumber.

Bread would be an issue! But if we are allowed to be specific, then pass me the croissants and ciabatta. Oh, and all the cocktails.

BefuddledPerson Tue 27-Oct-20 04:32:17

Oh, and puddings, all puddings grin

MountainPeakGeek Tue 27-Oct-20 04:43:32

S.

Steak and "sauteed" anything else I might fancy 😂

MountainPeakGeek Tue 27-Oct-20 04:46:09

But if I wasn't cheating, then I'd have to agree with you OP... Chocolate, cheese, cake, crisps, coffee.

MountainPeakGeek Tue 27-Oct-20 04:52:19

Cod, Chips, Coconut, Carrots, Chicken, Cherries - oh and the all important "Curry"!

Yeah, C will do for me.

TeddyIsaHe Tue 27-Oct-20 04:58:01

C as well! Cheese, chocolate, crisps, chicken pie with chicken gravy. Cheese bread from M&S, that definitely counts. Cultured butter!

cariadlet Tue 27-Oct-20 05:52:27

Definitely C as well. Chocolate, cake and curry were the 3 that leapt to mind. I'd try my curry with couscous as I couldn't have rice. Carrot and coriander soup with ciabatta would be lovely for lunch or sometimes cashew nut butter sandwiches. Cherry cheesecake if I wanted a pudding.

Only downside would be swapping tea for coffee.

FenceFuckery Tue 27-Oct-20 06:20:55

FFS how could I have forgotten coffee! My life source. Just as well I chose C.

DisgruntledPelican Tue 27-Oct-20 06:29:41

C for me as well, you could get a fairly balanced diet out of that.

I’d miss lamb, tea and broccoli the most.

moolady1977 Tue 27-Oct-20 06:31:41

I'd go for C as well chocolate,cake ,crumpets cherry Coke and chinese

devildeepbluesea Tue 27-Oct-20 06:33:43

C also covers couscous

Bakeittothelimit Tue 27-Oct-20 06:48:05

C = casserole so sorts the problem of missing out on beef, lamb etc

Vik1ng Tue 27-Oct-20 06:56:52

It would have to be B. Bread, butter,bacon and a brew. Also means I can have Bread and butter pudding, bananas, beans, Brocolli, burgers, burritos, berries and anything that’s barbecued or baked smile

Vik1ng Tue 27-Oct-20 06:57:59

@wirldsgonemad great minds! Ooh yes blue cheese too.

Zampa Tue 27-Oct-20 06:59:20

I would vote B too and may I add Barolo and Burgundy (wine) to the permitted list?

#cariadlet - a slang term for tea is cha, if that helps
