Ye Famous Black Puddings

Recommended Posts

I have a twisted veggie mate who doesn't drink beer because they use finnings (or something which is taken from the swim bladders of fish) to clear the ale.

Strange world when you have to go in a pub and ask if the beer is suitable for veggies!

They also do that to Whiskey!

Yep,

Cockles are very dog's and so were the pastties that we had at Norton working men's club when I was a lad.

I sang "and did those feet" (on stage) at one of those hallowed nights at the working mens club and got a free pastie and lots of applause. smile.gif I was probably nine years old and read the Eagle and so full honour. What a shock middle age is. laugh.giflaugh.gif

We left the club at 11 pm. eek.gif

I slept in 'til 9 am on Sunday. huh.gif

On the way back from the boot sale on Sunday morning I always stop at the sea food stall and buy a tub of jellied eels and some cockles and prawns.

Then when I get home eat the jellied eels as soon as I get in the door. laugh.gif

I don't know if you Northerners know but around the London area there are Pie and mash shops, most really old where you can get stewed eels, pie, mash and liquor all on the same plate.

Manzes in Tower Bridge road is my favourite.

Lovely. biggrin.gif

I've had jellied eels Neil but regret never visiting a pie and mash shop sad.gif .

I'm a vegetarian now so I must apply for a special dispensation from the Yoghurt Knitter General and try it wink.gif .

In Turkey this year I asked for some salad in a kebab wrap, explaining that I didn't eat meat. The stall holder smeared lamb fat over the wrap before filling it with salad and yoghurt laugh.gif . I ate the bloody thing of course eek.giflaugh.gif .
