    I remember, years ago, seeing Clement Freud on a TV cooking programme making a 'chocolate' sauce for ice cream by melting Mars Bars...

    They made banana and ham sandwiches in an episode of Back To The Corner Shop - the kids weren't keen but I reckoned they be fine. I mean people eat gammon and pineapple so why not banana?

    We had a real old fashioned supper of mince and tatties. Quorn mince for the veggie. With peas, and carrots to colour it up a bit. It was 1973 all over again.

    Absolutely. Nothing wrong with banana as it's a herb.

    Our kids, when they were little, called a meal of mashed potatoes and mince "splop".

    I think there's something comforting about mashed potatoes. Real mashed potatoes, not that vomit chefs dish up. Lots of butter and a splash of milk or cream. Yum!

    Had frankfurters, Jersey Royals, leek, asparagus, sweet corn and mushrooms tossed in President butter with coarse ground black pepper and garlic puree stirred in and topped with grated extra mature cheddar

    Yes I know some people on here think that's weird but it's quick and easy and tastes bloody nice! And followed by a largish slice of honeydew melon probably is my 5 a day

    I had chips! The decent chippy in Stratford has reopened and the smell lured me in so I had a big bag of chips, they've been shut for ages so it was a bonus! Later on I may have some President brie on crackers or something light and I still have half a melon to use up so that sounds fine to me as it is , too hot too cook here so Brie, crackers and melon for afters sounds good to me

    I only tell you what I had when it was good. This was good. Two small fillets of farmed sea bass. One fillet would be good for a starter; two for a main. Spuds, cauliflower, carrots and mangetout. All lubricated with Macon Villages. Sadly no asparagus. Disgracefully our retailers are not getting the best product into the shops. I looked at our local Keyworth Coop's offering yesterday.Thin spindly stuff from god or devil knows where. Last week Morrisons had the best English asparagus. I took advantage of a 'twofor' deal. Don't be offended Kate, the Scottish asparagus is just as good; it extends the UK season so we all can enjoy it well into June. I did not notice where the mangetout came from when I bought it. I don't mind buying out of season imported mangetout, sugar snap peas and beans from the commonwealth. These came from China. What are the Coop thinking of?

    Well I suppose that the source of Brie is more local to you than the best of English cheeses. Enjoy.:)
