It's not just the bowls though, is it?

Went for a meal last friday (10 of us) and Mum said meal was fine but she would have preferred it served on a plate instead of the chopping board thingy grin

I prefer spag bol in a bowl,easier to manage,and stir fry,mostly i prefer my food on a nice round white plate,smile

Yes, whats a JP when it's about?

Oh and FryOne, I had a burger meal served on a chopping board the other day and all the ruddy chips kept falling off the ends angry

Poncy and impractical so totally with your mum on that.

Yabu, it's easier to contain the buttery goo at the bottom of the dish and mop up with the potato skin. Not poncetastic, just use fingers for that bit.

I prefer big flattish bowls to a plate. Harder to send your food flying over the side. I like the chopping board style where it makes sense such as for a Ploughmans or a pizza.

EchoBitch Tue 16-Oct-12 14:27:01

Looks like YABU op grin

Mum had a steak , chips and peas, all with potential to drop off the board! Cousin had the same, along with a sauce to go on the steak, so even more potential to get messy....

I had gammon steak and got lucky - I got a plate.

Jacket potayto you tweedles.

But how can you use you k&f properlike when you have sides to contend wuth?

SB is fine - that's a forking meal, non?

But what's [adam ant] ?


UnChartered Tue 16-Oct-12 14:28:53

you have to eat it with the fork only, like your mum's not watching and you've sneaked into the lounge to eat it in front of the TV wink

ChaosTrulyReigns Tue 16-Oct-12 14:29:42

I so am NOT, EchoVitch!

And don't OP me, please, makes me feel all lonely and sad.

<<crumbles in corner>>

EchoBitch Tue 16-Oct-12 14:29:54

It certainly is a forking meal Chaos.

I hate chopsticks,we went to a friends last Saturday and had Chinese and were given bloody chopsticks,i had to ask for a fork,CBA with fucking around with CPs while my Singapore noodles go cold in their bowl.

Soup, stir-fry, spag bol, curries, paella, naice salad - meals we regularly cook that are eaten from a bowl (admittedly our bowls are wide and shallow, so more like a plate with sides iyswim).

Jacket potatoes are a plate meal though! Same with steak, roast dinners, fajitas (and assorted Mexican food inna wrap).

EchoBitch Tue 16-Oct-12 14:30:43

<blows kisses to OP Chaos>

EchoBitch Tue 16-Oct-12 14:34:03

Crumbles in corner?...sorry,sad

Apple crumble should be eaten from a bowl,with lashings of custard.

FryOneGhoulishGhostlyManic Tue 16-Oct-12 14:37:11

KenLeeeeeee's bowl meals sound good and I'd add any rice meal eg risotto.

Jacket potatoes should be on a plate. Agree with Chaos on that one! smile

ChaosTrulyReigns Tue 16-Oct-12 18:02:13

Why tvym, FryOne.


I knew I was right alwats am.

Steak is great served on a board though so you can cut it properly. Peas probably need their own little dish in such cases though.
