Foo-bored: a reblog

I’m reblogging this today as an introduction to a later post on how our dietary needs have changed over the years as this was written almost 8 years ago.

 I suppose school dinners could be blamed for some of it. I mean we had mash, boiled and roast potatoes once a week, curry and rice on Wednesdays, and chips on Fridays. Ice cream was always on Tuesdays and if we had chocolate crispies for afters, it was always with pink frothy custard.

On the homefront, Dad was a meat and 2 veg kind of guy so we always had a cooked meal every evening, bacon and all the trimmings for breakfast at the weekends and a traditional Sunday roast.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s why I make a 2 week menu and try at least one new recipe per month. Often it is one new one per week. If Sparky likes it, it goes into “rotation”. Currently I have over 30 recipes that I rotate through so I don’t repeat week to week!
