    aqua made of cheese and gin

    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 :hmm:

    my grandmas apple pie was apparantly something to behold but she died when I was 4

    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. :eek: It was fucking mindblowing, I had no idea there was anything but paxo sage and onion. :oops: They even had a choice of wines not just lambrusco or hock. :cool:

    OMG! I'd forgotten about choc ices! :eek:

    They were truly awful, nasty, paper thin chocolate encasing a lump of bargain basement ice cream. Those were the days....

    the only difference between the chocolate and the wrapper was the colour

    Another vote for crispy pancakes. :D

    Also:
    Cornish pasties made with mince
    Parkin
    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?)
    Jam tarts
    Bourbon biscuits
    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.

    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. :D

    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!
