a male kitten is usually broader in the face and head than a female same as rabbits :-D

Have always wanted to correspond with a lass from Middlesbrough who is an expert in sexing kittens from all directions. :-D :-D ;-)

Back to Rose's interesting thread, my 3 kittens sleep in my metal bread bin. Keep my bloomers in the freezer :-S

It's Sunday afternoon, I'm boooooored with my own company now and I'm a child at heart so I'll wade in here with,

'What's wrong with the Crusts Away white bread?'

and hope I don't upset any bread afficionado.


Merlin Report 30 Sep 2012 13:53

Well if they,re too stale they,re liable to break your false teeth. :-D :-D :-D ;-)


Island Report 30 Sep 2012 13:56

I don't understand your question JoyLoiuse :-( :-D


JoyLouise Report 30 Sep 2012 13:59

You're right, Merlin, but that Crusts Away bread makes lovely jaffles (now called toasted sandwiches).

Do you remember jaffle makers at all? They had long handles and the bread and filling went into a square at one end then they were held over a fire or lit ring. The stuff (especially cheese) simply oozed out. Also before toasted sandwich makers people without a jaffle maker simply put the whole sandwich into a frying pan and flipped it over like a pancake to do the other side.

My age is showing now - and all this talk's making me hungry (not really hungry but wantful - is there such a word?).

It's Sunday afternoon again and I should be snoozing like all good grans.


Merlin Report 30 Sep 2012 14:03

Well I regularly have toast made in front of an open fire ,with lots of Beef Dripping and pepper. :-D very tasty. ;-)


JoyLouise Report 30 Sep 2012 14:11

A favoured jaffle is made with crustless bread, loads of butter, cheese, beans and Vegemite - the Vegemite you understand keeps my strength up as well as my blood pressure.

Everything drips all over!

I'm getting hungrier (more hungry?) talking about it.


Merlin Report 30 Sep 2012 14:20

Be careful, :-D Dizzi might turn up with her favourite recipe for Bacon Butties, :-D steak keeps your strength up as well, delicious Medium Rare with Garlic. :-D


Island Report 30 Sep 2012 14:28

Oh well...

By process of deduction, bread without the crust is available to buy??? :-S :-S :-S


Are jaffles waffles?


Merlin Report 30 Sep 2012 14:33

They,re toasted sarnies, :-D :-D :-D :-D ;-)


Julia Report 30 Sep 2012 14:34

What happened to cutting your own crusts off of bread. I do, especially when making toasties in my Toastie Machine.
Then I put the crusts into the Food Processor and make into bread crumbs and freeze. Waste not, want not.

Oooh, a bacon butty with loads of butter on the bread, of course, is delicious. I don't care whether the bread is untoasted or lightly toasted just as long as it's white. A bacon butty using anything but white is just not right.

And what's with those who put tomato sauce or any other sauce on a bacon butty?

The only additive could be fried onions - I can feel my blood pressure rising at the thought of it all.

If Dizzi turns up with one of those, I'd be in seventh heaven.

It doesn't take much to get us oldies to wake up, does it?


Island Report 30 Sep 2012 14:39

WAAAAAHHHH!!!!! :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 :-D


Merlin Report 30 Sep 2012 14:41

Never cut the crusts off my sarnies, my gran told me it would give me curly hair, :-D still trying, but its not working,seems to be disappearing at a rate of knots. :-( :-(


Julia Report 30 Sep 2012 14:43

JoyLouise, we would never eat butter on Bacon Sarnies in these parts, and that goes back to before Blood Pressure, Calories and Cholesterol were invented. We like abit of 'Dip' on one side of the bread. Sauce is optional, but we like brown in this house.

So who sells this crustless bread? not that I'd buy it I lubs brown with crusts :-D

.....and I have a metal bread bin ;-)


JustJohn Report 30 Sep 2012 14:48

Metal bins are best. If close-fitting, you can slice crusts off as well. But they must be colour coded with your decor. :-)


Island Report 30 Sep 2012 14:53

I dunno who sells crustless bread Mau - not that I want any - I'm not sure if it's a secret or if I'm using invisible font LOL :-D :-D

I hope your kitchen isn't blue John :-D


Julia Report 30 Sep 2012 14:56

Blue John, Island. They dig it out of mines, up here in Derbyshire. Very precious.
