Lucky for you that really was a dessert.
Jenna

You amaze me, Vila. Every now and then you show some taste. That Muscat was very nice and ... mine, you thieving bastard!
Avon

Great vinders and the rest was good fodder. Didn't like that sticky drink though.

Very nice, Vila, especially those little balls.

Not bad. A bit exotic but I liked it anyway.

Comments

There could have been a bit more of it.
Gan

Are you trying to kill us with hardening of the arteries so you can take the Liberator?
Jenna

I'm a man of plain tastes. Isn't one sauce enough?
Blake

Yum-yum but I wasn't very well afterwards and couldn't stand watch. Hmm. Same again next week by any chance? (BTW I bet you're taking more than the piss about those mushrooms. Which were very tasty anyway.)
Vila

Very nice. Do you have any more of that chocolate?
Cally

I believe you are meant to boil the peas.
Avon

Well done!
Blake

Oh, those poor little things.

That stuck to me ribs.
Gan

Was that an insult?
Vila

That sounded disgusting and was delicious!

What he said.
Gan

You hypocrite, Cally. I've seen what you eat other days. And how much for that matter.
Avon

We need to stay healthy for the cause, Avon. Well done, Cally.
Blake

Not bad except for that strange stuff in the soup.
Jenna

Comments

A man after my own heart!
Blake

Quantity and quality appear to be mutually exclusive in this case.
Avon

Cheers mate, but for variety could you whack a little curry powder or chilli in the beans next time?
Vila

I've said this before, Gan. Not beans at every meal, esp not with beer. Now I suppose Cally and I will have to put up with yet another profoundly unfunny competition on the flight deck. Men!
Jenna

Very nice, particularly the peas. A most unusual treatment.
Cally



Day 7: Cook on duty: NONE

A day of rest (from cooking anyway, please note, Vila).
Serve yourself leftovers from the week from the fridge and stasis chamber and do clean up after yourselves (please note, Avon).

Blake

P.S. No fry-ups during space battles. I shouldn't have to tell you this. B

Comments

Bags the vinders.
Gan

Too late. Sorry.
Cally

All right. I know there was over a litre of ice-cream left. Own up, Vila.
Avon

Sorry, it was me. Is there any chocolate?
Cally

Mmmm, cold chip butties and pizza! Yum-yum! Anyone know where the leftover baked beans are? I felt like whacking up a really hot chilli sin carne.
Vila

It was not me this time. But if you find them, I should like to try that dish.
Cally

There's plenty in the store.
Gan

I shall be doing regularly scheduled space suit and emergency respirator testing for the next 24 hours.
Jenna
