Food - Child hood days
« on: 08 January 2018, 22:08:55 »

Just doing my Asda shop online and just fancied a change, so went looking for meatloaf and all that came up was dog food, so decided to look for nut roast, and the only option that came up was the Quorn crap.

Nothing can ever replace Mums cooking or all the home grown veggies that we had to hand, I gave up on the takeaways a few years ago with just the occasional one every 2 weeks or so, and now with all the processed and frozen food etc I am just getting fed up with it all.


But it is so sad that the basic stuff like the nut roast and meatloaf just is not available any more. :-\










and KFC dont deliver to our area  ::)

Home cook your own food. If you are short of time buy some plastic takeaway dishes and bulk cook and store and freeze several meals in these or make a big pot in a slow cooker, just make sure you reheat it up to full temperature everyday so it is above 72degC as that kills any yeast or bugs that would make it go off. :y :y :y

Savings from home cooking compared with processed foods then can then be spent on useful cooking utensils and gadgets that save time and effort when cooking. :y :y :y

Very true, just simple & nourishing fair during the week & always a roast on Sunday  :y

I tend to just scoff sarnies for lunchtimes, but gettin a tad fed up with that to be honest :(
You try a BLT without the B, think I`ll slice up me banana & add that to the mix
One thing  we`ve  cut out is cured bacon, the stuff that contains nitrates / nitrites; after the WHO declared that a link might exist with colorectal cancer in 2015  :o
To be honest I can`t tell the difference with uncured  ??? & we`ve even cut down on this now too.
To be honest swmbo  :-* has cut our consumption of processed meats dramatically.
Wednesday night is girls night out & I can see a fry up on the menu :y

I used to hate liver when I was a kid and as it's cheap we used to get it quite often.  :(

Funny thing is I enjoy a plate of liver, onions, bacon, cabbage and gravy these days!  :y

I suppose in this day and age the foods I grew up eating[still do!]would be classed as unhealthy stodge,but it was always made up of fresh ingredients.You could tell by what was for tea[dinner to the posh types who do lunch]what day of the week it was as it was the same thing every week e.g. every Monday it was hash made up of Sundays left overs plus bread to mop up the gravy.

I thought that I was the only one common enough to mop up the gravy with my bread!
Well, back then gravy was too good to waste, especially if it was from a steamed steak and kidney pud.  :y :y :y

I'm not allowed to make the gravy, SWMBO cringes at the fat and stuff particularly if it's roast beef and I've used the roasting pan, so it's instant granules  :(



Childhood food ?  . . . . . Oh yes, I do so miss decent pheasant  ::)

Add bisto to hot water? ;D

Also, to Skrunts - nut roast and meatloaf? I thought at least one of those was a solely American preserve..

In the old days, when roast beef used to produce the fats suitable for making beautiful dripping, all you did was mix gravy powder with the liquid left after taking out the joint in the roasting dish, over heat, gently bringing to the boil, then serve.

Even in these days of sterile beef, you can still mix gravy granules with the cooking fats left in the roasting dish in the same way as before, and stir over heat until bubbling to make a good, but rarely excellent, gravy. ;)
