Salad cream sandwiches! yikes! I used to love those and brown sauce sandwiches...and tomato ketchup..wasn't there a cartoon in the Mirror years ago that had a small child that ate tomato sauce sandwiches and at the end of the cartoon someone got squished when it shot out from between the bread!? Can anyone remember?

I'm only 5 foot, one. Oh, plus an imaginary 3/4's of an inch too!!!.....
The 3/4's are actually very, very important! You had to be 5 foot, two, to be able to train as a nurse when I applied - so I was very naughty and cheated and put down 5 foot, one and 3/4's on my form!!!

Then I went for my physical fitness test and they measured me and found me out! The Assessment Officer could see how desperately keen I was, so he winked at me, and suggested that his tape measure might possibly be faulty? and he passed me!!! And I have hung on to my 3/4's of an inch ever since!!! ;o>

Oops. So one my favourite little treats of using up any leftover boiled potatoes, or a bowl of rice, peas, finely sliced raw peppers and sweetcorn - and then eating them ice cold from the fridge, having stirred through a generous sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper and a very good dollop of Heinz Salad Cream really isn't going to be your idea of heaven then, kittycat?!?!?!?! - still all the more for me then!!! - yummy, yummy!!! :o>

Youngest son grew up on salad cream sandwiches. All the others were easy to feed, but he was terrible. It was the only thing he'd eat. Didn't stunt his growth, he's six six!

My grandad always used to eat cheese and jam sandwiches. The guilty passion of the males in my family is salad cream sandwiches, it seems to be almost genetic with them and all ages eat this. The very thought of salad cream makes me feel ill.

Cheese on toast (welsh rarebit) with strawberry jam spread on the melted cheese, it's a northern thing!
Also try cheese and onion crisps and chocolate together.

My devilish secret treat, ( no longer a secret ) is what I can only describe as a soup. It's a vague description, as I've given it a name all of it's own. And the awesome treat, I'm going to reveal to you all, is bin juice. It's quite lovely, unavailable in any shops, and for those of us watching the 'pennies', it's free ! What's not to like?

Cold mashed potato on hot toast with butter and a little bit of salt sprinkled on's a taste sensation!! Yummy

French, In early marriage I bought a crab and took it home to dress it myself. Only make sure to buy the crab on the same day you are going to eat it,

I carefully followed the instructions in my then new copy of Good Housekeeping cookery book. I was confused at one stage where it says to remove and discard the "dead mans fingers" as there was no picture of what they were but I soon found them.

Fresh crab beats the crabsticks 200% for flavour.

Still love them though.

I am even fonder of lobster and my favourite going-out meal was Lobster Chop Suey but I was a lot slimmer then. I used to go to the restaurant wearing a skirt with adjustable waist as after we had eaten there the first time I found my skirt unbearably tight.

Not so secret as I believe this is common in the North East of England,

I was at a charity dinner once sharing a table with Sir Bobby and his brother Jackie Charlton - When they brought the cheese course around they stopped me from eating the cheese and we saved it till the wine and cake arrived. The toast was given and then we ate the rich fruit cake with the cheese on it. It is delicious and whenever I have fruitcake in the house the cheese gets eaten along with it.

Try it.

Hot cross buns or tea cakes toasted and buttered with slices of cheddar, wensleydale or that nice white salty crumbly cheese that I can,t remember the name of........lovely for lunch, well anytime actually.

Yummy, can I share with you (the crusty roll and the cheddar)? you can have the wine all for yourself *smile*
Now that I am thinking of it, I love cheddar cheese as much as crabsticks.

Strong cheddar cheese in a crusty roll and a large glass of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Bliss.
