Hmm..... all these OHs who cook for their wives once they've retired. I'll have to show this to my Hubby. I once told him to feel free to make a meal anytime. "Oh,but", he said, " You so obviously enjoy cooking!" Hmm.

Other than a restaurant meal, Christmas when we stayed with daughter and all meals were cooked by son in law as usual.

MOTH cooks often, but he always makes dinner on our wedding anniversary in December.

The same thing every year........ a Kilo of prawns and salad to share <3

OH took early retirement 3 years ago and I haven't cooked a meal since.

He enjoys cooking and I hate it. He did most of the cooking before he retired as well. It's lovely to come back from work to find food ready and waiting. :-D

I had a meal out today actually - lunch with two of my friends - we all worked together in Freeman's Cigar Factory [Manikin] here in Cardiff in the late fifties and into the sixites - lovely meal and lots and lots of talking!!!!

One friend lives in Neath now and the other in Italy, so we have a lovely catch up - we all took photographs to share as well

That'll be it.

Broadly the same. Suet pastry. Lay the rashers on it, I use chopped onion as well.

Roll it up and steam it.

Boiled spud,cabbage,maybe a few carrot and tomato ketchup.

Bacon roly-poly.


PricklyHolly Report 30 Jan 2013 23:44


What the ell is Rasher Roly??



Sharron Report 30 Jan 2013 23:24

Wouldn't dream of eating fried bread indoors but breakfast out has to have a fried slice involved.

I don't miss corned beef but I do still miss liver. It is reasonably easy to replicate a lot of the dishes I remember eating like rasher roly and shepherd's pie but there is no wat of replicating liver.

Definitely with salt and vinegar Mau, heavy on both :-) and if you can get it wrapped in paper all the better!
