Christmas dinner: eat out and save your life
l’estiye shenanigans will soon be troubling the nation's liyers and what better way to eelebrate than by heading to a restaurant and undoing your top trouser buttons in the eompany (it your tried and trusted ehums‘.’
liating otit has long been one ol lil‘e's liner pleasures. way up there beside good malt whisky. el'l'eetiye headaehe tablets and staying in bed until two in the al’ternoon on Mondays when you should be at work. l‘orget about the mueh yaunted delights or home eooking. eyeryone knows that l‘ood always tastes better it you liay'en't had to prepare it yourself. 'l’here is no interminable queuing at the shops (which inyat‘iably look as though they haye been stripped by a plague ot' loeusts any time you get there alter the o‘eloek anyway): no disaster traught preparation; no tidying away or lurking l'latmates/kids; no mountainous pile
ol dishes to do the neu morning and. best ol
all. no stress. .-\etually. it‘s not just the stress laetor that's to be taken into aeeount: there's the danger laetor.
While programmes about eookery‘ and hooks about programmes about eookery eontinue to be tremendously sueeessl‘ul. it seems as though most ol' us would rather beeome knowledgeable about the theory ol eooking than aetually attempting anything in the kitehen oursely‘es. 'lltis isn't neeessarily a bad thing. ('asualty waiting rooms are always paeked with bloodied l)lY enthusiasts whose optimism and aeeess to house maintenanee manuals tar outweighed their aetual skills with a eireular saw and a nail gun.
In the wrong hands. kiteheu utensils ean be
just as dangerous. l‘y'e seen horrible aeeidents
iny'olying yegetable peelers and one lormer lilatmate was mutilated while watehing li’ay‘n-uleli in his bo\ers at the same time as using an eleetrie ean opener. You wouldn't try to install double gla/ing y‘oursell'. so what makes you think you ean eook a the eourse meal I'or eight l'riends. two ol' whom don’t eat meat. three ol whom are allergie to \egetables and two ol whom ney‘er liked you anyway. Why take the risk'.’ l.eaye it to the prolessionals.
Anyway. enough bah humbugging. spare
proud of - eat out.
y'oursell' inealeulable griel' both in terms ol your emotional and physieal well-being: make that restaurant booking l'or your ('liristnias meal.
