@Mattress did you ever go to Robin Hood's Bay? I used to be seeing a lassie whose dad had a holiday cottage up there. I spent so much time at the place for free. It's truly adorable.
The name rings a bell but I don’t think I’ve been there.

Just googled the place and it does look amazing.

The place this girl's Mum and Dad had was basically here...look to the pink cottage next to the one with the sign outside it.

Here's a better picture of RHB itself. You must go. I spent two Christmases and two New Year's Eves here as well as many many other times too.

That would be very much appreciated.
Couldn't find it, but here is what I did.
1 onion, cut into strips
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 shallot, minced
5 big tomatoes, cut into 6ths. I used large tomatoes, normally if I'm using vine tomatoes or something I use more.
1 package stew beef (~1 lb)
1/3 daikon, cut into quarter circles.
Fish sauce to taste
Pepper and salt if you want.
Vermicelli noodles.
Sautee onion, garlic, and shallot. When it smells good add beef and cook. Toss in tomatoes, water, and fish sauce. Bring to a simmer and leave it for a bit, if you use thinner slices of beef this part probably isn't necessary. Add daikon, when the daikon is soft it's ready to eat. Taste and season accordingly. Serve with vermicelli noodles, can add scallion, and if you want, shrimp paste. If you've never had shrimp paste, it's fermented shrimp and salt, it's strong stuff that smells awful, a little goes a long long way.

Copied and saved to a Word doc. I'll let you know how I get on. Thank you.

I just started a new job and the place I work has one of those cheap Chinese supermarkets (no Wuhan). I'm going to give it a whirl.

I do at least half of my shopping at one of those.
Are they cheap? There used to be one where I live now when I was little, but my Mum and Dad rarely went in it. This one now is near my workplace and according to a colleague it's supposed to be really good. There's also a butcher's market close by, this stocks cheeses and condiments too. Haven't worked in a city for some time, you don't realise what you miss until you don't. I'm glad I'm back.

The one I shop mostly is. Fresh produce can go either way, but otherwise the prices are cheaper than the international isle at Hannaford.

Yes indeed. They're 49p a tin though and I can't justify the extra 18p as I can't tell the difference. It's all just fish to this philistine bro. :lol:
He’ll no. The mackerel in spicy tomato is infinitely better tasting......because of the sauce AND because it’s mackerel.

I’ll send you 72p. Treat yourself to four tins, instead of those awful sardines.
