The ancient Greeks had a word for Peanut Butter -- Ambrosia

Really! I would have thought Kopros was more accurate :-)

Earlier someone mentioned Chris De Burgh, some of whose early stuff is o.k? But Daniel O'Donnell? I'm pleased for anyone who enjoys him. But was I taken aback, to see a full size statue of him. In the middle of Limerick, on O'Connell Street. And I'm not even making that up!!!

Peanut butter cups are delightful. Far too moreish though.

Is there a person on this planet who doesn't like Jaffa cakes?

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Jan 2014 18:18:18 GMT
BUT...?...are they really a cake?...or a biscuit, Rab? ;o>

Lez Lee says:
There certainly is RAB. I only tried one once and couldn't finish it. Marginally better than Wagon Wheels though which seem to be made of the stuff that stops floorboards squeaking.

Yes, myself, and Lez. I also detest Hobnobs, why would anybody want to eat anything with the taste and consistency of chipboard, even if you cover it in chocolate??

Whenever the Yanks used to mention peanut-butter & jelly sandwiches, I used to think 'Nah, that's just wrong!' but - correct me if I'm wrong - do they mean 'jam' when they say 'jelly' over there?
That said, it's still not much of a better proposition.

Ahhh and after the legendary debate about Jaffa Cakes comes the age-old refrain?...

"When I was a child Wagon Wheels were twice the size that they are now!"

They certainly do, and so their 'Jelly Roll' is a Swiss Roll to us. And they call their Jelly, 'Jello' instead.

I still haven't figured out exactly why we call it 'Swiss' though...?

Disagree Blastro, peanut butter and jam sandwiches are really nice, but then I like cheese in hot cross buns so what do I know? :-)

If ya ask me Suzy, they're inventing their own language; pretty soon they'll be speaking 'North American' rather than English. Jelly Roll indeed! : )

Foe is also a KFC addict so draw your own conclusions........;-)

Can't say I've tried em Foe, but really can't see that changing in the near-future. Never really minded peanut butter.... or jam for that matter, just can't imagine em together. Aw man nah, that just isn't appealing! : )

Hmmm lots of things people like/ don't like, yet at Christmas time we think nothing of eating stuffing out of a turkey's bum!

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Jan 2014 18:38:33 GMT
That's a blast from the past - I used to love KFC!

I've not had any for years though?...Is it still good?

Jayne's got a thing for Japanese food, which'd be okay, but when she puts some away in the fridge, it honks the whole lot out! Even get it into me head that it sends the milk off! : )

Yeah it rocks! None of that boneless cr@p though, straight off the bone everytime.

Yeah like a bit of Sushi but not any that contains tuna. Tuna is the devil's work!

Y'know, I don't eat fish. Also can't swim. Seems to be a pattern emerging here.

So the Devil DOES have all the best tunas!

Blastro, strong smelling food does taint dairy products. It needs putting in something with a close-fitting lid or wrapping tightly in cling-film. Melon's just as bad as spicy stuff.

I lived off Tuna in brine straight from the can when I was in digs as a Student Nurse.

Then one night I woke up feeling a little bit off?...and just made it to the communal bathroom in time...Food poisoning!
I spent the best part of over three days just holding on to that toilet bowl and retching - it was absolutely horrendous! I can't even bear the smell of the stuff now! Which makes life difficult? as Roo absolutely loves the stuff...and also with Mayonnaise too - something else that I simply can't stomach either! ;o<

She does that Lez, she puts it in, whadaya call it, Tupperware type things with lids and stuff, but I still swear the milk still turns. S'ppose it could be just me; as soon as I get a whiff of that, that's all she wrote. Same when she heats it up in the microwave; seems to cling to the insides, n'matter what ya do.

I know what you mean, Blastro. Sometimes a smell seems to stay with you. I had sardines the other day and was convinced my coffee tasted of them next day!
