7 Attachment(s)
okey dokey...so kylie started today's dinner thread(at about 8am bst....that's aussies for ya!) with the line:
"We had a quick and easy one...Chicken Tonight, the Cheese and Bacon one with chicken breasts and rice...still very tasty though" and i thought..'ang on darlin' what's wrong with "chicken tonight",i like "chicken tonight"quick,easy,tasty comfort food.then it got me one functioning neuron working & i thought "guilty pleasures".now we all cook don't we?,we all cook every meal we eat at home from scratch?'course we do!!yeah right!so i have flung wide the doors of my kitchen cupboards to reveal just some of MY guilty pleasures(food wise that is:wink:).so,come on you lot,what naughties are lurking in yours.photo's would be good too 'cos some packs have quite amusing names,umm,the chicken soup pack is self explanatory:rolleyes: & for those outside the uk the word "git" is hardly a term of endearment over here.the kucharek is there because it's got plenty of msg in it but,man,does it pack a flavour punch:yum:!!

I love King Oscar sardines!

buckytom 07-18-2012 11:50 PM

i used to work with an old irishman painting interiors of schools during the summer months.

the schools didn't have air conditioning, and the paint we used was nasty, stinky, oil based stuff that smelled even worse in the summer heat and humidity.

but the kicker was that every morning at our 10am coffe break, the old bog hopper would fire up a pipe with cherry tobacco, make sourdough toast, boil a pot of irish breakfast tea, and microwave a can of king oscar sardines in oil to have on the toast with the tea.

the combination of those smells was just too much. :sick:

i ended up taking my breaks outside after that.

Well the Queen or one of her kin keep showing up here to check on us.

Any minute I expect you to burst into song with the Welsh miners. :lol: BTW, I was married to a bloke from Cockermouth, Cumberland. Took me a long time to figure out what a nappy was. He had a very strong Scottish accent. My youngest daughter learned to talk from him. It took me a year to get rid of her Scottish accent. She could roll those R's like a beer barrel.

the nappy thing...that must have been messy for a while addie:lol:!!cockermouth is in cumbria but i know what you mean,very beautiful part of the world it is too,right on the edge of the lake district & birthplace of william wordsworth.it was that area & the fields full of daffodils that inspired the poem.
i was born & grew up in north wales,strong rugby & mining tradition.i played rugby but they wouldn't let me down the pits 'cos i couldn't sing.mind you i did scream a few times during a game...a painful sport!!!

I wandered lonely as a cloud....

....and came upon a host of golden daffodils.

One of the first poems I ever memorized. My daughter lives on Wordsworth Street the next block over from me. We live in the poets district of this town. Some streets are named after European cities, some after battles of the Revolutionary War, some after poets, etc.

My ideal vacation would be to visit Wales in the springtime when all the glee clubs are rehearsing. My favorite folk song is "All through The Night."

Sleep my child and God will tend me,
All through the night.
Guardian angels God will send me,
All through the night.

Sang that many times to my babies. Makes for beautiful harmony.

buckytom 07-19-2012 06:43 AM

lol, it's difficult not to read that like a kennedy/quimby.

"all, er, ah, throoough the noight".

:cool:

I like King Oscars on toast with a slice of onion, then the sardines and top with squiggles of yellow ballpark mustard. I admit, at work, no one wants you to share the love.

We also have a Diagorno (sp?) pizza in the freezer and mac and cheese in the pantry but I wasn't going to dig them out to take pics. The instant chocolate pudding is the hubby's (bleh) but the pecan sandies are mine. :)

Same cuisine, different products.

Good stuff, H. Don't get to see or try them here.

There's a cooking show here on Food Network called "Chopped." Four chefs are given baskets with unusual ingredients, & compete to make a "Gourmet" (well, palatable) dish.

Here's a Challenge. What dishes do you make with your goodies?

I've made French Onion Pierogy Soup (they sell frozen pierogies here).

Potsticker soup.

What dishes have you made? (Just for fun :wink::chef:)
