Crispy chilli beef me up

Crispy chilli beef me up

Living in London for so many years has made me very lazy and well accustomed to the ease of obtaining take out food. There is a vast array of cuisines, from the comfortably familiar to the wildly exotic, right on your doorstep. And they all deliver – it’s the norm! You are never further than a forty minute gap from hungry to satisfied.

Living in a small Cornish town is a different story altogether…

I love the laid back, much much slower paste of life and the relaxing “forever on holiday” feel. I love shopping local and bringing home fab quality seasonal, Cornish grown, reared or caught produce. The only downside is that if you are in a lazy, mid-week, it’s raining outside mood and fancy a take-out, you have to put on your jogging shoes and go get it yourself… Problem is I usually get my cravings (wrongly) at the back of 8 o’clock in the evening and by that time my 2 year old is already blissfully tucked in bed. I spent the first 2 months here ranting and raving about it, like a spoiled brat, refusing to bow to the “collection only” trade. It’s put me in such a stinker that I even catch myself drawing evil eyes at the Chinky on the High street, whenever passing by!
