I remember starting 'big school' and my friends eating "goodies" (chocolates/sweets). I never liked them cos they weren't what I recognised as sweets. Anyway I asked father if he'd buy me a bag so I could take some in to share. "What kind of goodies are they?" "I don't know, they're all bits of stuff in a bag". So off I went with my sweets to share but no-one liked them.
It was years before I realised he'd given me bombay mix.
And yes about the ice cream van too
Jeez he was a sod.
Like the sound of Saturday pie - but there's never any leftover meat in our house as it all gets portioned out and put in the freezer for another dinner.
I can't recall us having any leftover meat after Sunder dinner when I was growing up in the 50s/60s.
But I do like the sound of mashed potato and meat layers.
The pea soup looks lovely.
Finally managed to post once again and not stuck in 3 shades of grey.
How did I do it? Fluke? Deleted all the words and then pressed backspace. Clear white screen. I'm not quoting for a while as I have been blocked out of the Aldi thread for a couple of weeks!
That might be the achievemet of the day!! No, I have swum 20 lenghts, delivered doggy duvets & dashed round Aldi.
Thanks to folk who suggested ways of getting past the greyness!

It's a good way to sort out the actual homemade menus from the pre-portioned ping meals that are just labelled as home made tho. The places with decent staff and true home made meals will often oblige with a smile.
Bigger isn't always better, sometimes it's just more.
