Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Lovely to see such memories written here already!

And Eathmum, what a wonderful recipe to start. They look so delicious and I love  that they have morphed from Maids of Honour, or taken their name, somewhere along the line. Recipes and words, they both move and morph and cross boundaries and make their way into our hearts.

For poor Mummza and Marie and any others who have bad memories of childhood food, were there no exceptions? A meal at a friends place? Food at a fete? Meals in a favourite story?

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Fresh mulberries in a tree. Piklets, eaten hot with cold butter, as they came out of grandmas electric frypan. Pecans scavenged from the ground in her backyard. Rice, warm milk and brown sugar. The lasagne my mother made in my last two years if high school because she thought I needed it to help me think. Being allowed to mess up the kitchen creating things and learning how to make marmalade in my own. Christmas foods, icing cake, cherry chutney that stank out the house and the drama of the glazed ham one year.

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

My childhood was fairly plain food, freshly made but not interesting. My mother didn't enjoy cooking, still doesn't, but it was freshly made and she was happy to cater to my fussiness and foibles (like the times I wanted a different plate for each food). Being a fussy eater means I probably would've rejected anything more interesting. I had a lot of creative freedom as I got into my late teens and then in my early 20s when Jamie's shows started.

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Growing up in Louisiana, I think just about every meal was a food memory. I will share stories every time I post a pic.

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Well done JoyTomYamDaisy.

You now have me dreaming. Forget the tomato and even the haslet sandwiches. And Yorkshire's are so "common" now. My dear old mum (rest her soul) used to cook the most delicious beef and potato pie (pastry crust only on the top) but my favourite of her dishes must be what she called "seasoned pudding". It was a starter and was served with lashings of onion gravy. I haven't cooked one for a while but this is a picture of one when I did.

Re: August 2014 Challenge!

Oh, I forgot - I should post what's in it...........

1 loaf of bread (preferably past it's sell-by-date) broken up and soaked in milk for 1 hour.
Beef suet (or vegetable suet) to the equivalent of 1/3 the quantity of the loaf.
Chopped onion to the equivalent quantity of the loaf.
1 Egg.
1 tsp Sage.
Salt and pepper

Squeeze the bread with your hands or in a sieve to remove the majority of the milk. Discard the milk. Add the remaining ingredients to the bread and mix well. Place the mixture in a greased tin or oven-proof dish to a thickness of 30 to 35 mm. Bake in a preheated oven (200 degC) for around 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until the pudding is brown on the top.
