Warm Lamb Baguette with Mint Jelly & Cold Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes.

Wednesday 9th February 2011

I have very fond memories of lamb sandwiches. We would always have them on a Sunday for tea after mum had made a roast lunch.

In the 80s there was a program on tv called ‘The Beiderbecke Affair’ about a very undynamic duo trying to solve a crime. It was on on Sunday evenings around 7ish and it was perfect Sunday night viewing for a young boy who wasn’t yet old enough to go out at night.

I would make sure I was bathed and in my pyjamas by the time it came on so I could sit and eat my lamb sandwich in front of it. It was the last thing that was good about the weekend before I had to go back to school on Monday morning.

I can see myself sitting on MM big red velvet sofa wearing my winciette pyjamas with wet hair, never taking my eyes off the tele as I posted my lamb on buttered white bread sandwich into my mouth.

Good times.

I made this for dinner on Sunday night for MS. Making sure he was bathed and in his pyjamas just in time to watch ‘Rolie polie olie’, he ate his lamb sandwich.

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    Isn’t it funny the memories we have as children, and how they inform our experience as adults? Fun that you got to (get to) share your experiences with your son, and help him form memories of his own.
