Strange addiction
« on: December 21, 2017, 13:22 »
For the past couple of months I've been addicted to Egremont Russet apples. One of my trees produced, at a guess, 100kg of them. They keep well in a frost-proof shed and now, a couple of months after harvesting are in good condition. Trouble is that I can't leave them alone and have been eating at least four a day. I can't digest the peel, so I peel and core them before slicing up and eating. The Shetlands get the cores and peelings as part of their daily diet, so nothing is wasted.

Anyone else developed a strange addiction?

Raw carrots! Just washed and eaten or grated with other veg into slaw - at least one a day now  ::)

It started as just a good healthy choice for when I have the nibbles, but now I think I'm addicted - I'll be turning orange or start hopping soon  :lol: :lol:

I do but they don't last. A number of years ago when I came home from night school I had to have a Mars Bar. Others have been Cox's apples with plain crisps, baked beans on toasted tea-cakes, Maynard's wine gums (still going) but my all-time favourite is a good, tangy Prawn Cocktail Sauce! Apart from the usual I like it with egg and tomato sandwiches.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

yep chees and potato pie haven't had that for a long time I must remember to remind her indoors to sort one out and bacon and tomatoes fresh grilled or tined sounds good for tomorrow's tea and I'm quite addicted to bacon shanks done in the slow cooker with  broad beans and boiled spuds with a knob of butter all veg home grown of cause and not forgetting the white sauce with my broad beans

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches, or now - Ryvita Crackerbread ditto...

But as we've been watching old 'Hi de Hi' progs (don't watch anything on the BBC any more, mainly rubbish), Geoffrey Fairbrother's favourite - 'A few Bath Olivers, a bit of Stilton and some grapes'...

Marvellous together...
