About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

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.

Liver & Bacon with Onion Gravy.

Tuesday 15th May 2012 I’ve had the fortune, or the misfortune as a certain vegeterian may comment 😉 , to try some rather unorthodox foods in my life. Some of which have been appreciated more than others. An entire tête … Continue reading

Toasting Marshmallows.

Tuesday 8th May 2012 Everyone loves a bonfire, right? Then I’m no different. But they’re not what they used to be 30 odd years ago. Back in the day, we were able to blaze up at anytime of the day … Continue reading
