Usually I only end up with a doggie bag if it is my first time at a particular restaurant. Other than this, I usually am aware of the portions and do not order more than I can eat.

Regardless, I often eat with my family, and if one of us cannot finish our plate, there are others (including my older brother) who are more than happy to 'finish up' for me. There are numerous reports online about how doggie bags are risky in terms of health precautions, but if we ourselves do the right thing it is quite difficult for anything to go wrong with taking away food after it's been cooked and left on a plate as leftovers.

The fragrant Mrs P-K (a famous minor diner) and I (a famous Sussex Pig) usually eat out with Ian, my ex-neighbour, friend and absolutely amazing computer wizard.

He has the nickname 'Half Man Half Skip'. So any of Mrs P-K's uneaten food (and anybody's on the neighbouring 20 or 30 tables) soon gets JCB'd onto his plate and disappears into his digestive tract like a startled Jack Russel down a rabbit hole. Hence, no need for doggie bags at all when he's around. Very eco-friendly. No doggie bags to recycle even.

I was thinking of renting him out for a small fee. Three guineas and all he can eat? Any takers?

PS To save you squinting, the text caption to the top pic says “It is possible to spell as many as forty words (maybe more) representing foods, drinks and seasonings by starting with any letter you choose in the chart and moving one letter at a time in any direction. Players may use (the) same letters and squares as often as necessary. Set a time limit.”

Obviously a brilliant and engrossing game for the whole family in those wonderful days before steam radio and promiscuous sex were invented. Personally, I can't even find one, let alone forty foodie words. Can you?

Oh and I just spotted 'Veal' down the right hand side. That's 2, only thirty eight to go!

PS Heels: WD-40 gets most things off your screen, including the screen. You should use Tippex next time like me.

If the bottom left corner is (1,1), first digit is the horizontal index, second is the vertical index (and assuming diagonal directions, and staying stationary for double letters are also allowed). Oddly, there's no "w" so "Wine" and "water" are unavailable. Can't seem to wrangle "Salt" and "pepper" either.

Spices (3,2)
Veal (8,5)
Crisps (2,4)
Goose (3,5)
Cheese (4,6)
Cake (2,4) & (1,7)
Teacake (1,6)
Slab (4,8)
Grape (3,5)
Bread (3,6)
Beer (3,6), also available from (6,7)
Ocra (3,4)
Lamb (4,7)
Pork (4,3)
Ale (1,4), (8,3)
Peas (4,3) or (3,1)
Bake (3,6)
Grappa (3,5)
Sec (3,2)
Coors (2,4)
Cream (4,6)

That's my 5 mins up :(

Siasl, and everybody else, great list...slow day at work this morning Siasl? Did you get everyone else at work beavering away too or are you just a Bletchly Park natural?

Now putting on my schoolteacher's gown...Can your 'Coors' be allowed? Was Coors beer already around in the 1930s when I presume this grid was made? Just checked on Wiki and oh fraptious joy! Coors has been around since 1873 so you are well in there!*

So brilliant result so far and congrats to everybody, now I know why this site is called Intelligent Answers.

34 found, just 6 more to go... and only five more hunting days days to Christmas...

* Wiki says about Coors "In 1873, German immigrants Adolph Coors and Jacob Schueler, a Denver businessman, established a brewery in Golden, Colorado. Coors invested $2,000 in the operation in addition to Schueler's investment of $18,000. In 1880, Coors bought out his partner, becoming sole owner of the company."

What's more Wiki says Coors is the third-largest brewer in the United States. And Coors is also renowned for operating the Golden, Colorado brewery, the largest single brewery facility in the world.

Never knew either of those and I have been drinking Coors for over 30 years. Which probably explains why I only found a whole one word in the grid!
