Hello Dear Reader,
Salads these days are ‘complex’, full of grains from far flung lands, with sprouting seeds and exotic embellishments. 1970’s salads had lettuce, tomato and cucumber, in season and from our garden and with a sprinkle of cress grown on the window sill in the kitchen. Ham came out of a tin, and cheese was cut with a wire on a board in the pantry.
And……..there was nothing wrong with that!
My salad today hasn’t changed! Salad, boiled eggs, beetroot, ham, a tiny lump of cheese and a measured amount of salad cream……..far more retro than mayo. I keep my portions small, I get enough and watch the costs.
Dearly Beloved’s salad is the same but much bigger with more cheese, ham and a bowl of crusty bread. Does anyone else get the bread in Lidl? The small baguettes are 19p and great for a man mountain who likes nice bread with everything.
A parting shot of DB’s supper in all its 1970’s glory…….if we had any pickled onions, he’d have had a sprinkle of them to. Now over to you, who else watches portion size to stretch the budget? Who else loves old style salads? Anyone else have 1970’s food memories?
