All that work for a fish finger|?
if fish were meant to have fingers they would. I'd rather have the cod fillet, before its mucked about with. A bit of batter in the fryer salt vinegar and chips and to finish it off a peice of greaseproof and page three of the daily paper, delicious.

I am like you in that respect Yvonne, too much mucking around for my liking. But what is more interesting, and not that I would know of course, but isn't page three where they have the pictures of topless women. Could that possibly be a Freudian slip?Oh! boy I do hope so, I am thinking of and looking forward to the tales you can tell us.

JohnB said...

You are right Yvonne, it's a lot of work especially when you can buy frozen ones.
What is on page three, the TV programme schedule?
Did you ever have school dinners, I think they were fish cakes and not fish fingers that they served us.
Does any one remember their school dinners or can you tell me what's on page three?

JohnB said...

Oh! ...that page three!!!
That sort of thing isn't allowed in any of our daily papers unfortunately for us.
Maybe they'd sell more if they did though.

This has started a topic of conversation, you have a guess at what is on page three. On my page three I have grease and vinegar, oh and I had better say cake. I loved school dinners, never remember having fish though, loved the meat pies and lumpy potatoes even the watery greens, but my favourite was the puddings, frogs spawn(tapioca) semolina, macoroni and that lovely sponge with pink custard, didnt care much for the chewing gum stuck under the tables and forms. We used to take it in turns to put the forms up, when it was our turn we only half put one end up so when the girls sat on it the end would collapse and four or five girls would slide on to the floor leaving us in fits of giggles and looking innocent. Sorry girls if it was you.

jim davis said...

We know what is on page three. The question that remains unanswered is what were you doing choosing that page, and why was it always page three.? Boy I can hardly wait for your answer.

I love fish fingers,no mess just pop them under the grill,they now do them with OMEGA3 which is good for you so they say.in fact i like all fish ,didn,t have many school dinners we went home,but we had to stay if there was an air raid on .It would make a change if there was a HUNK OF A MAN on page 3 stay where you are JIM we only want one about THIRTY, used to make fish cakes when we were a family but i dont bother now, i can please myself,talking of food this is making me hungry,so will now raid the larder,or should i say cupbard a larder is not mentioned much these days.

JohnB said...

Don't you mean a fridge Grace?

We got our first fridge in about the mid 1950's I think it was.
There wasn't any room for it in the scullery so it stayed in the hall passage near the front door.
We still had the larder but I think the front room built-in cupboard was removed by then.

yvonneh said...

We had a larder in the kitchen, I thought everyone did, we also had a meat safe on the wall outside the back door and my dad dug a hole in the garden and put in a big silver bicuit tin we used it to keep milk butter and cheese fresh and cool in the summer. I wonder if its still there. I wonder if Brians lead soldiers are still in there I used to hide them in the box when he annoyed me.

JohnB said...

Before we had a fridge, we had those terracotta clay things that we put in the sink and covered the milk and butter with, then ran the cold water on them to keep them cool during the heatwaves.
I think 75F degrees was heat wave back then.

JohnB said...

Todays thought...Tate & Lyle treacle pudding.

yvonneh said...

What about the custard? can taste it now is it the good wholesome suet pud boiled in a cloth or the airy fairy sponge version.

Anonymous said...

Bird's Eye and suet pud of course.

Today's specials;
Gooseberry pie, rhubarb or raspberry tart all with with custard.

JohnB said...

Sorry...Bird's custard not Bird's Eye.

yvonneh said...

Hi there first jam sandwich i had was in 1950. A policeman a couple of doors away from my house, He got hold of some and shared it with some of the kids who lived near Him. He had a police dog called black bob. Which used to attack any dog that walked past his gate.I had a cat who used to do the same thing. If black bob missed any dog. our cat would jump on them. He was called nelson because he had one eye, from fighting.My favourite sweet was rice pudding. and frogs spawn.
