I’m pretty miserable right now. I’ve got a bit of a cold that’s made its way down to my chest, and it’s making me cough like I’ve been smoking off-brand cigarettes all day. Somebody kindly suggested I have a bowl of soup – but if I wanted to drink something I’d have another cup of coffee. Instead, tonight my mind wanders to a pub favourite. Dammit, I want me some bangers and mash.

There’s something magical about a rustic and grainy (but delightfully buttery, perhaps garlic-infused) mashed potato, with two plump grilled pork bangers and some pan fried onions that makes me salivate enough to forget that I’m sick. A good bangers and mash doesn’t need anything other than the sausages and the mash, really; anything else is just gravy.

In Other News: There may be more souls, Arma reaches its Apex, GTA V gets some cunning stunts and a childish spoonerism and Red Dead rides best on the bone.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • The soup was the better option 😛

    • Pariah

      GITS.

      Nothing beats Bangers n Mash for that hearty, feel-good pick-me-upper meal.

        • Pariah

          You shouldn’t drink so much flavoured water dude. There’s a reason you’re throwing up your soup.

          • It was tough to not use a GIF that was actual barf xD

          • Pariah

            So you found one with soup instead 😀

          • At least with the soup I know what is in it, instead of mystery meat 😛

          • Pariah

            PORK bangers. PORK. The same ingredients as bacon. These aren’t viennas, they’re Pork Bangers.

          • Pork is just as bad xD

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Pork = Bacon = Life

          • Bacon is not pork…it’s magic

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Same animal, all hail the delicious pig!

          • Pariah

            … Are you Jewish or Muslim?

            While I don’t get the insane love for bacon, pork as a meat is yummy.

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Soup is more mysterious.

        • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

          Out comes the soup!

      • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

        YES!

  • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0
  • That last pic…the sauce is touching the other food
    (?°?°??? ???

    • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

      sauce – a liquid or semi-liquid substance served with food to add moistness and flavour.

      • Beetroot is the tasty enemy of any plate of food xD

        • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

          True, but I don’t see any beetroot

          • example of food touching other food 😛

          • Pariah

            I’m never inviting you over to eat.

          • xD

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            I’d invite Trevor over, but he’d have to excuse us while we eat as his steak is still being cremated

          • Pariah

            You could always just heat up some cardboard instead. He won’t even notice, and in the end, ya’ll get to eat together. 🙂

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            I’ll make sure it has a picture of some sanitary product on

          • Pariah

            XD

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Can make him a steak roll. Just need buns, sauce and some fried onions

          • I was watching social eating on twitch (I was very board) and this one oke is eating a great looking plate of food but with this super black steak on it. Chat was freaking out about it the entire time xD

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Were you so “board” you watched a guy it a piece of burned wood?

          • Indeed…

          • Pariah

            I’m sorry. I love Twitch, I love watching certain games and/or streamers. But eating? Even I have limits.

          • Yup, it is truly stupid on so many levels xD

          • Pariah

            Well at least now you know for sure? XD

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            I’d get banned from Twitch the way I eat

          • One dude got banned the first night for over eating and puking all over the place

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            I define table manners as walking away from an empty table 😛

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Puking LOL!

          • Pariah

            Wow…

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            Steak must’ve been well done…

          • I have already identified who can not braai, so when I visit I always offer to do the braaiing

          • Pariah

            Do you use a separate grate for each type of meat, because mixing not allowed, you foodist pig!

          • xD

            All meat can touch, it’s all good in the hood

          • Pariah

            All meat?

            Ooooooooooh my!

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            All meat but not all bangers?

          • Pariah

            Not all bangers were created equal I guess. XD

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            hehe

          • Mystery bangers is what put me off those things forever. Also the super amounts of oil xD

          • Pariah

            *Soup

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            LOL!

          • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

            I… I want to touch that food

  • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

    This is the best food I’ve seen in awhile on Tuesday headers

  • Hammersteyn_hates_Raid0

    Japanese fans are impati…..damn that food looks nice!
