    Just a thought, whilst working away from home, especially after a hard long day, the usual regime was to go to Hotel get showered, shaved etc, have a few beers and go for some grits. on occasions when we had to work late there was no time for a sluice, just a few beers and then some solids.
    One particular day we worked late 6 or 10 beers later the Stomach was asking for solids, what was nearest? well it began with M and sold double cheeseburgers, 10 later along with copious amounts of Coke an 6 apple pies, my guts were satisfied, anyone got any stories?

    I keep a small stock of pot noodles on the van for that hungry time - I note that I do need to be hungry as the thought is alway better than the product!

    Every Friday I would go to my favourite curry shop and buy a Bunny Chow. A Bunny Chow is a quarter or half loaf of bread with the inside scooped out and filled with either beef or chicken curry, and the scooped out chunk placed on top. Pork was never used as it was considered unclean by the proprietor.

    The “Bunny” was a popular choice in the community, with a quarter loaf as a snack and a half loaf as a meal. Sometimes I would go for beef, other times chicken. You eat it by dipping the chunk into the curry and eating it. When the chunk is finished you eat the remainder, round and round the crust. It’s a bit of a messy meal, with curry sauce dribbling down your chin, best eaten sitting forward to keep your clothes clean.

    One Friday I arrived at lunchtime to buy my Bunny. The shop was shut and it had a Public Health proclamation stuck on the door. One of the locals was sitting on a bench nearby,so I asked him in patois “whyfor the shop she was shut? “. He said “The guvmint man he came motorbike check the meat, then plees come take Babu away”

    “Oh, the meat it was bad? ” I ask .” No, no, Babu he threw old meat out for the cat and the dog ” Oh, the cat and the dog they got sick?” No, no, when the cat and the dog eat the meat he hit them with stick. “Oh, he was cruel to the animals so they took him?” “No, no, he keel them, with the dog he make beef, with the cat he make chicken.”

    With my metabolism I can go all day without eating.
    Then other days it’s pies, macD brekkie. A coffee in every wholesalers and a bag of sweets in the van. Coke multipack just inside rear door.

    I also carry a few pot noodles in the van along with my “work fork”

    No. I don’t eat much during the day.

    I was the same working for myself. Couldn't face breakfast in the morning, no food all day, didn't stop. Got home, have dinner, stuff my face with other crap.

    Now I'm working for a company, 10 o'clock break & lunchtime, I take in sensible meals to eat, I even started having cereal breakfast before work. Then evening meal.

    Still stuff my face in the evening though. Time for regime change me thinks.

    Oohh, when I was a lad, there was a burger van I frequented. The proprietors burgers were true pre cooked hamburgers out of a large round tin about foot high. He'd empty the contents, into container & kept them warm. I introduced my future indoors to them, but she wasn't impressed. They were lovely, lashings of onions & topped with cheese & some mustard. My record was ten, in one sitting.

    I tend to go most days without food until the afternoon or evening meal time. Doesn't really bother me most days at all, a good coffee or strong tea in the morning and I'm usually good.

    Longest I have been without will have been 5 days at work whilst on a 7 day fast. Was an easyish week doing some carpark pole lighting work so I was fine really apart from a slight dizzyness on Thursday afternoon.

    Years ago I was sharing digs and transport with the shop fitters , first day the driver said will will pop in for a pint before going back to the digs, sounds good to me , trouble is a quick pint to them ment about 5! I was wasted before the evening had even started o_O. These days if im out of town i always locate the nearest Toby carvery . Hungry horse or if they are not avaible, then its the Spoons , all cheap good food , also I always keep an emergency pack up in the van of chocolate, crisps and water for when im gridlocked on the motorway. :mad:

    It was the curry shop mentioned earlier, I've learned since that chicken bones are round, cat bones are flat. If you ever need to know.

    Biggest Chinese I ever had was in Belgrade, Novi Hong Kong it was called best Rinky I had ever had, as much as you want for the equivalent of a fiver, all good stuff even got a discount card for regularity, cheap as chips, the Chinese Embassy staff ate there, a brilliant evening, or many was had by all, pity the world doesnt work like that, no more wars, or fights, just go out for a meal, and chew the cud
