Afternoon Tea at Sea

Post by chipbury » Sun Sep 10, 2017 4:16 pm

This is bound to be controversial but our cook produced an afternoon tea for us today.

Those of a nervous disposition should not look at the second picture...you have been warned!

Hmmm, that looks smashing!

How many others do you have to share with?

I do hope that 'devil's t#rd cake' hasn't contaminated the lovely looking food around it. T'is a damn fine spread all the same. :mrgreen:

There was about 10 of us working our way through that.

Considering most people had not long had a full Sunday dinner we did very well. There's even a few chaps in the mess room now getting stuck into pizza :shock: .

Neil I can confirm that the mars bar rocky road had not been contaminated by battenburg (or indeed that the battenburg had been sullied by rocky road) - i had two of each to check.

That looks delicious Chris, especially that cheeky little marzipan-coated number!

Any jobs going on your ship? :D

I can literally feel by just looking at the pictures how I gain weight...

But they sure look tasty!

Good. Good.

That is a festival of cake for ten people, makes me wish I was on board if you're treated like that. You don't need a 'mess pet' do you mate? I can do a mean cat impersonation if required.

Our cook's definitely a 'feeder', he gets bored and turns up in the control room with a tray of cakes every other day or so :D

Luckily we've got a decent gym on here otherwise i'd be 5 stone heavier!

As for extra crew - well next year we may have to change from Philipino crew to British so you never know!
