Chatting about recipes on the commute this morning we started talking about childhood food.
Do you remember:
cheese and potato pie
bubble & squeak
mince, veg & onions (without having pastry case or covered in potato)
home made steak & kidney pudding
sausage meat patties
cheese straws made from leftover pastry
bread & butter pudding
prunes & custard
home made jam tarts
home made jam
licking out the bowl after mixing up a cake (still do that now!)
How come we were never fat? Was it because we ran around more as children or was it just that the portion sizes were not so big?
I used to make everything myself but now I just don't get the time although I have spent the last couple of weekends cooking - but then nothing else gets done!
Memories, hey, now I know why my Dad used to talk about the good old days :-)
