Ori Mrs Beeton is correct - but it is more to be supposed that it was intended as a light meal - children of Families who could afford to eat well certainly did get meat - but more than likely it was - at least while they were younger - the mince - cottage pie - braised lamb - rabbit - etc -the children who went hungry were those born in the "Workhouse" environment - gruel twice a day - and bread and cheese on Sundays if they were lucky - this of course is second hand - but I believe my Grandmother's view - she had my Father in 1910 - but she was "in Service" as a Lady's Maid - taught me to sew and embroider - and promised me that I would know how to be a good Lady's Maid - and I crossed my fingers behind my back (so it was not a lie) and said - "Oh yes Gramma - I would like that"

Charlie love - if you go to Yorkshire - they mention Pobbies - which is usually stale cake or bread which is beaten with sugar and egg - put into a cup and steamed until it is SET - in a pan of water - I sincerely believe that is what should have been called Pobs - because it turns out - when cooked like a little custard shape. Sure but I still like my Tomato soup and garlic bread best

Thank you Patricia, that'll be it then. My mum is 100% Yorkshire woman, even tho we've lived in Lancashire and sussex all my life! Funny I love bread and butter pud which I guess is pretty much the same thing but pobs? Yuck!

Bread and Butter Pudding - now you are talking - sprinkle of Nutmeg and way to go I used up some Christmas Cake - that way - cut it small and finish it off with that Egg Custardy stuff like the B/B Pud - it was very nice - stale Madeira Cake - ahem!! if it gets to stale = it does not often last that long

Right - you are on the list - next time I make it Charlie left over Brioche - quite delightful - I could bring chopped apricots and california raisins

You're on Patricia, sounds good. May add some choc chips for the kids what do you reckon??

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Feb 2013 15:27:06 GMT
Sounds very nice - I'll go along with that - do you recall a bar called Caramac - that was caramel flavoured Chocolate - don't think they make it now

I live caramac, yep they still make it! A bar doesn't long tho, shame you can't get bigger size. You used to be able to Easter eggs in it. I always got loads of them as was never a 'proper' chocolate fan yum. Let us know how you get on at Asda Patricia!

No cambells is better, or i buy Tesco cream of tomatoe soup for half the price.

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Feb 2013 20:33:50 GMT
I usually shop at Tesco - they have such charming delivery staff -

Tesco's do not sell Caramac - wickedness of it - ASDA do - and I amended my post Charlie Darling !!!

Our Tesco has them Patricia £1.20 for 3, I shop with Ocado now (after too many Tesco problems) and they don't have them unfortunately. May need a trip to Tesco now tho as can't stop thinking about them

Tesco Probs tell me about them - "MY" Tesco no longer supports the Tassimo Cappuccino that I favour - and other stuff too - I get the steaks from Russells
I think now the weather is improving - hate the cold - I shall be visiting Asda from time to time because their Greens and Fruit are very good - that naughty noise you make with your hand over your mouth and blow - THAT to Tesco - Zerburts

Have a look at Ocado Patricia, I have been so impressed since I changed to them. I had a look and they do list your cappuccino but is out of stock, worth a look in a few days??

Thank you Stu - and for the Tassimo Coffee Charlie Darling - it is not a real problem - you can get it online from Tassimo themselves - they even send it Carriage Free if you lay out £30 - but that lasts so long - and can be a good bargain if they have a "feature" - I won two lots of £10 from participating in some skylarking - sort of competition - that being said - I could always have a drip - intravenous - but I hate needles - except those I can embroider with - Off I have to go now Good-Night and The Gods Bless

Funnily enough I had Heinz tomato soup the other day for the first time in years. Just had a random craving for it so had it for lunch with one of those nice pretzel rolls from Waitrose with lots of butter. It was definitely a yum moment.

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Feb 2013 15:07:31 GMT
Pretzel Rolls - now that does sound Yum - I was hoping to go out to Asda today - but the weather has become so darned cold - and just now it was chucking sleet down by the handful - now raining - I shall have to speak to the Clerk of the Weather

Hubby decided he wanted soup for lunch today. On one of the rare days when I hadn't got any homemade. Since we were out I stopped off and bought a tin of Heinz vegetable soup. It was horrendous. Gloopy texture, a total lack of seasoning and the most unpleasant taste. Shan't do that again.
