You (Roscharch) card, PatE! LOL

@ CD, Lin Yutang is credited with saying "Patriotism is just memories of what we ate as children." I remember BLTs (which are never as nice with shop-bought tomatoes!) and hominy and grits. The only "hominy" I can get here is the dried version from Latin America and it's not the same as the canned.

Mention of Lin Yutang - made me go check my book case - the special one where I keep a special shelf - yes he is still there - a paper back - well thumbed - one of two pages a little loose - well right !!! it is an elderly book and well loved - priced at 5/- no less!! from Smiffs if I recall correctly - "OLD" is not the thing to call any book - but I allow "elderly" ;D **chuckle**

Well-loved, PatE. That's what they are. Or "classic". LOL

When i was about ten and expected to make my own breakfast my favourite was two dry weetabix spread with dairylea plus a cup of hot chocolate.

I had a friend who liked chocolate digestives topped with cheddar. There must be something in the cheese and chocolate combo.

Now you are talking - Marmite Toast and Tea - two sugars

It,s very true Ori, we do connect fond food memories with places, like holiday destinations, going toGrandma,s, picnics, days out, and home most of all. I would say that food is deeply connected to patriotism.

Clem - funny enough, in Sweden they make a hard cheese which is flavoured with chocolate, that I have tried. Its not unpleasant, but it is definitely different.

And there is now chocolate philadelphia on the shelves. Not tried it yet though.

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Mar 2013 09:56:05 GMT
I thought it would be yuk, but my daughter had some in her fridge so I tried it.....it,s yum, tastes really chocolates, not cheesy, but how would you eat it??? By the spoonful? I can,t eat stuff like that on bread or toast.xxxx

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Mar 2013 10:07:21 GMT
Try it on a digestive bickie - it is very nice - eaten by the spoonful is a tad indulgent - but as a spread - on Digestive Biscuits is delicious - there is a thought that it may be of a lower calorie option for those who are Chocci Bickie Addicts - then they do not need to attend CBA meetings

So is it from the Philadelphia Light range, rather than being the full fat variety?
On digestives, mmmm - it sounds like a miniature cheesecake experience.

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Mar 2013 20:56:25 GMT
Now there,s a though, I saw that they do those mini pots too so you can limit your indulgence.

Since given up the hard stuff have now got a sweet tooth.

Meringues with thick cream, Toffee sauce and dipped in dark chocolate.

What no drink at all?x Do you feel better for it?

Apart from one relapse - which I took as a glip and was back on the saddle the next day.

Yes am feeling better and looking better - have lost more weight although I cannot eat enough sweets and actuallly crave them.

When you reach an all time low while not throw in the towel and start again from Scratch.

I went to check the Philly I have in the fridge - well it is labelled Philly Light with Cadburys etc etc - but with the Chocolate content it does not seem light.
Clem - that is correct, it is just like a chocolate cheesecake and there were some little pieces of tinned fruit left over from yesterday's tea - so it got decorated - oh so yumptious !!
