i remember frozen mousse. and choc ices.
didn't have icecream, didn't have sweets (god good no), crisps were for "treats" only, in fact, thinking about it I have no idea where I learned to cook
my grandmas apple pie was apparantly something to behold but she died when I was 4
It's all coming back now.
Cheese and bean toasties with Jefe when he was at home with me and dad at some points.
Dad making bacon sandwiches on a sunday (with real butter ).
ooo yeah bacon buttys for tea on a sunday night whilst watching bullseye
what I really associate with being younger with family was supper at Christmas time
Ah breville cheese and bean toasties mmm, with loads of black pepper. I survived on those as a teenager and leftover curry toasties too yum
i still make bacon sarnies with butter
Yes, christmas tea. Love it. Cold sausage rolls, sliced ham and pickles, leftover turkey.
One christmas me and my dad went to his cousins in Kent and they were quite rich so it was all a bit posh for us. I remember they had turkey and beef and ham. And they had 3 types of stuffing. And they had a choice of different puddings. It was fucking mindblowing, I had no idea there was anything but paxo sage and onion. They even had a choice of wines not just lambrusco or hock.
oh god yes Blue Nun wine at Christmas!
it was the turkey and stuffing sandwiches, with pickles and bits of cake and crisps and alsorts - nothing special but even now I miss it
OMG! I'd forgotten about choc ices!
They were truly awful, nasty, paper thin chocolate encasing a lump of bargain basement ice cream. Those were the days....
Me too. I really, really miss family christmasses. We don't even have them with magic sams family as his mum is a JW.
the only difference between the chocolate and the wrapper was the colour
Melted Red Leicester on toast with ketchup and The Dukes of Hazzard in my dressing gown after 'bath night' on a sunday evening.
The wallpaper and furniture are mostly brown or orange.
Another vote for crispy pancakes.
Cornish pasties made with mince
Yorkshire puddings eaten before the roast dinner (proper Northern way)
Lots and lots of homemade chips
Tinned hotdogs with onions (Sunday night tea after a roast dinner at lunchtime)
Chicken noodle soup out of a packet
Spag bol made with packet tomato soup (why?)
Bacon and tinned tomatoes (Friday tea every bloody week)
My Mum's a decent enough but unimaginative cook (basically because she hates it and doesn't much like food). We didn't have the best food but it was nearly all made from scratch. She was very good at pastry.
Bloody hell that brings back a few memories,tasted awful tbh but when your a young un you did'nt give a shit.
We weren't posh enough to have soda stream...
toast made on an open fire during power cuts
Fish coated in ruskoline.
Boiled egg mashed in a cup with soldiers.
Banana mashed with sugar & milk.
We weren't posh but we had a soda stream.
I'd forgotten about tinned ravioli. Has anyone had it recently? I'm tempted to buy a tin for old time's sake.
oops, wrong thread.
why does posh = soda stream general question, not aimed just at you Ms T
anyway, yes i still eat tinned ravioli. i likes it.
Soda streams were the opposite of posh

Toast made on an electric fire on a sunday evening after a bath.
I asked my mum once, she said we couldn't afford it...
It was pricy but it wasn't posh.
those CO2 cylinders were bloody heavy to take back to the shops to exchange too
Sorry, didn't see this earlier. I could not possibly serve it. Do you not see that that would mean I was no longer the one to be looked after but the looker after. I would have to accept adulthood!
