Hello Dear Reader,
I’ve got my appetite back! So? East, meets Provence, meets ‘eh up duck?’ – The east is the mushroom rice – from :Lidl and you just stick it in the popty-ping for three minutes and serve. Provence? is the ratatouille and the ‘eh up, m’duck’ is the faggots. I may have mentioned that mum is from Derby and we were visiting relatives in Matlock and, as a child I was given faggots, chips and mushy peas. I was sent to the chippy with the cousins and we ate the steaming hot food out of wrappers on the street corners. As a country girl, I thought I was in Shangri-la! It’s an odd combination of the bottom of the fridge, the stock cupboard staples and faggots from the freezer!
What’s your oddest combination?
