    hey guys...another challenge for you all

    every saturady, me and the MIL take it in turns to do a big meal for the the four of us (MIL,FIL, OH and me). this saturday is my turn, and because of the hot weather, i fancy something simple...and the idea of a ploghmans pub style lunch/supper came to mind. the problem is i've never really had one before, so im not 100% as to what i should be including!

    i was thinking along the lines of

    bread roll variety
    selection of sliced cold meat
    ham and egg pie?

    full side salad - lettuce mix, cucumber, tomatos, beetroot, pickled onions, coleslaw etc etc

    any more ideas/suggestions/variation-on-a-theme twists that i can surprise everyone with?

    know thyself

    Nid wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus...

    I reckon you've more than got it covered there. Bread, cheese, pickle, and a simple plain salad is the usual fare. The bread is usually thick doorstep cuts, or rolls.

    So you'll definitely be at the top end of the market with yours

    Oh, my hubby had some excellent ploughmans while we were on holiday. But you have definately got it covered there

    Salad, usually lettice, tomatoes, cucumber, celery
    meat, he usually had ham
    bread - nicer when it's warm
    and he did have an apple and coleslaw with one of them.
