I think my OH used to use the expression 'a rasher of wind and fried snowballs'.

I think it means a slice of bread that you pull to pieces to eat lol

A friend of mine used to say it, don't remember my parents saying it but it's probably a Norfolk thing. I also recall a Fresh Air sandwich lol

My dau was about 3 yrs old and asked what was for dinner and I said 'frogs legs and spiders webs flavoured with thunder and lightning'. She sat down to dinner table and burst into tears - when I got her calmed down she was upset because that was not what I told her was for dinner!

Think it meant not much for dinner, tried google and could not find a good answer. Remeber when I asked what's for dinner mum always said this.

Carol :-S

Well Fred is thriving on it, so you must have got it right.



Sharron Report 25 Feb 2013 20:24

Really I know how to please me.

I grew up on that sort of food and always enjoyed eating them but could not reconcile myself with the source of the food.

We have cottage pie and rasher roly-poly as well as sausage toad,although I don't make that because my batter is rubbish.

It has taken a long time but I am getting the hang of it now.

Well done Sharron :-D

That sounds good.
Not what one would normally expect as a veggie meal, so I think that shows great initiative.
You know how to please your men !



Sharron Report 25 Feb 2013 19:44

I am a vege but OH and my dad are not so,while they have to eat vege because I am cooking it I do try to make it as much to their liking as I can.

I am always trying different ways to improve things and have had a bit of a result today.

We had a suet pudd'n for tea with Quorn steak strips and onion and mushroom. Today I fried the onion a bit longer than usual when I was making the filling and I rolled the Quorn strips in flour and green Oxo before I fried them and it worked. Fred expressed approval and that happens with about the same frequency as coronations!

Unfortunately none of us can move much now!
