I've officially reached that age where hangovers are within the top 5 worst things on earth. I know that sounds dramatic but also - it's very true and I'm 100% sure that you can relate.
One night of boozing writes me off for a solid 2-3 business days and I cannot be held responsible for anything I say in that 4 hour period when I've just woken up.
There are very few things that make it easier to get through. One is watching repeats of QI non-stop until my brain doesn't understand words anymore.
And number two is eating this very tray of seriously good grub from Cane & Grain.
Now bear with me because it's sort of not a roast but it also definitely is a roast - and really, who defines a roast? We didn't say it was a roast dinner anywhere did we!
Completed with half a roast chicken, tender strips of their signature smoked beef brisket, a massive pile of excessively crispy roast potatoes, a side of greens and the only thing that makes life worth living, mac and cheese.
All served to you on a tray that means you can shovel it straight into your gob without having to move that much.
Meat, gravy, crispy potatoes, cheese, pasta and some vegetables for good measure - what more could your body crave if it's hungover?
I'm struggling to think.
The tray comes in at £15, a low price to pay to defeat the hangover gods and get back on the waggon with a pint in hand.
You can share it if you want - but I know, and you know, that you're not going to do that.
