taking sides is normal in every conflict.. i believe you just resent the fact they didnt take YOUR side. if they had, its likely you would like them better.

---

oooh.. so goood they were.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karelian_pasties mom and her sisters made ton of them today.. straight out of wood heated oven.. oooh the crust is just right... butter meltin on top.

is 8 too much or just enough?

i think i must keep a short pause before i try to get a nice round figure like 10 of them in my belly. :)

8 is about right AND, I think you missed the point of March's saying they took sides... :twak:

Did you guys see this on the pastry page he posted? "Karjalanpiirakka have Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) status in Europe."

Damn!

Traitor ... Why didn't you go to Lidls ...

I guess you're a wealthy stock-broker shopping at M&S ... In a moment of weakness , I once bought some underpants there a few years ago ... Technically I didn't really buy them , but someone gave me an M&S voucher thing for my birthday and I had to put about a pound to it as the underpants were in a pack of three ... That's a long while ago though , but it's the only time I've shopped there ...

When are Poundstretchers going to sell wine and spirits ?
.

Not quite a wealthy stock broker. More a young man with my mum ( she was shopping for an outfit for a works party ) who helped his mummy like a good boy. For that I was rewarded with said yoghurt and a packet of butter mints for my car.

Those were the days ... I remember them well ... Living with Mum and Dad and paying a minimal amount of lodging money whilst running a nice big estate car with blankets and pillows in the back ... The blankets and pillows were obviously there just in case it ever snowed (etcetera) ... Wonderful days with no responsibility and some well chosen girlfriends who didn't know each other ... You are only young once , so enjoy it.

I am not allowed to say what the "etcetera" means as I would be banned from future posting on CPF ... But we didn't have computers in those days and dancing didn't mean jumping up and down whilst shaking your head about ... Dancing was where you had genuine "hands on" experience with the ladies ... I remember it only too well.


There were no Indian or Chinese resraurants or take aways , and all the Fish and chip shops (except one) in our town were run by Italians ... Wonderful.

No central heating and no bathroom ... Toilet at the bottom of the back-yard ... Not so wonderful.

Mango Chutney was not invented (or not available) in our town ... Absolutely not wonderful ...

There wasn't a Tesco or Morrisons or Lidls to be found , only lots of little shops where you could buy sheeps heads and pigs trotters and other such delicacies plus everything else ... We even had shops that would charge your accumulators that powered the valve heaters in your wireless sets ... By the way , we didn't start teaching transistor theory till 1958 in the army ... Of course that foretold the close of the shops that charged our Grandparents accumulators in the same way as the modern large sell-everything stores closed down the lovely friendly little shops.

You see ..... Grandads remember these things.

p.s ... I'm not your Grandad as far as I know ... But I did have a Motorbike.

p.p.s ... If I am your Grandad , I like Malt Whisky (preferably Islay cask strength).

If your my grandad I'm pretty sure you have missed out on a fair few birthdays.... So I would be more than happy with a gold played Sunwayman V10.

Much love your grandson.

Also you mentioned the army. Ex forces? I'm an army brat myself dad was in the Royal Sigs for 22years.

When your heart pounds when you see her, and you get those butterflies in your stomach just seeing her car in the parking lot...that means you really like her. :grin2: I'm all for taking it slow and easy, being friends, getting to know each other, etc. BUT it would seem to me that at some point you're going to have to tell her you like her. Not just like her, but like her like her. I mean, if you're going to have a heart attack in front of her, she should at least know it was out of love. ;)


I love crepes. My dad makes great crepes, but usually he makes 'em sweet. Fills them with berries and chocolate chips and whipped cream and such. So tasty, those little treats. I will have to tell him it's time to have them again. It's been forever!

I was gonna ask about the chick some time ago but didn't wanna bring it up for obvious reasons bro.

As for crepes, I made the best crepes I've had but that was then and this is now, oh well. Love crepes though.

Also you mentioned the army. Ex forces? I'm an army brat myself dad was in the Royal Sigs for 22years.
I was in the Royal signals stationed at 3 squadron 1TR (Catterick) from February 1957 to February 1959 as a line technician X3 tradesman ... I was in charge of A troop as acting sergeant and in charge of No.6 Group where the Line Tech Trade tests were carried out prior to the boys getting posted overseas ... I also lectured on DC theory , AC theory , Valve theory and Transistor theory before taking over 6 Group ... I enjoyed my two years and wanted to sign on , but as I was under 21 , I needed my Dads signature ... He was in the Royal Signals during the war and didn't want me to sign up ... My old Sergeant Major (Tony Beale BEM) said that a break in service would mean that I would lose my seniority and rank , so I didn't join up ... Sad story isn't it ?

I'm sure that I have sent you all the relevant presents but can't be absolutely certain , as you probaly moved about a bit ... I spent a lot of time in Darlington and can't remember all the lovely ladies that I met ... Since I was in the area from 1957 to 1959 , my memory is not as good as it was ...

Sorry if we lost contact.

p.s. I now live in the Amazon Rainforest with a Portuguese poison arrow makers wife , but will be quickly moving to somewhere else as yet unknown (for personal reasons) ... So I will be unable to have a family reunion ... Sorry about that.

That is indeed a shame. Sounds like you had a good time in your few years in the forces though.
I'm pretty sure I got your presents....

I'm actually living just down the road in the amazon too! I'm right next to the big group of trees on the left after the long right hand bend. No wife though.

Yeah, but she'll just beat on your chest. Would you get some tongue too? I'm not good at this life saving crap.

Sweet crepes are great. Mind you, I had some stuffed crepes in Sweden once with shrimp or something, they were amazing.
After that I had crepes suzette. Incredible. Never had them again since :(

I'm within a very short distance from you ... I've just looked at a map of the world in my very old Letts diary and the Amazon is only 5mm X 6mm and the bendy bit you mentioned looks very familiar ... It's right next to the river where the canoes come in with dead animals and vegetables on ... My house is the third grass hut on the left with the satelite dish on the left hand side ... You can't miss it.

Unfortunately I have to get someone to pedal the cycle-generator so I can use the TV and internet ... I did consider using thermocouples heated by bottled gas plus an invertor , but Calorgas don't deliver this far up the river ... I managed to get the wife of a local arrow-maker to do the pedalling , but her husband is complaining that she never comes home to him ... Every time he calls round we have to pretend that she is pedalling and I am computing ... Hence the reason that we are about to change our location ... I hope to move next time to a place with electricity available.

p.s. I hope you are keeping well.

I do ask that there's something in folks' posts dealing (in some remote fashion) about the thread topic though, i.e. food. :tinfoil:

Sorry Kestrel,

Although march did mention dead animals in his post. Most things we eat are dead animals.

Had a milk chocolate magnum tonight for the first time in a good few months. It has been snowing in Scotland so I'm chilly Baltic.

At the football this afternoon ( Glasgow rangers game we won 2-1 ) I had bovril for the first time. It was a strange experience but definitely worthwhile given the temperatures.
