You almost definitely won’t do it right, Steve, as you’re a ‘foreigner’!

YORKSHIRE PUDDING (not sure of author)

Somebody just told me that the recipe for OUR Yorkshires cem From Normandy,that’s Normandy en France!
That was a bit of a blow. Seems it’s similar to their crepes – Their skinny little pan-cakes that they fold ovver
to mek em sommat reasonable. Fill em wi jam and sell from a van. NAY COOM ON – that can’t be reet.
It’s obvious we tekken this job tiv an art form. T’foundation of Yorkshire family life yo sit down on a Sunday, in
front of them beautiful buttercups, Four-square on thee plate. Fill em wi gravy, then tek a moment ti meditate.
Cos,when you brek sides and gravy spills ovver it’ – like when you were a kid, pulling a branch out t’ beck, flooding.

Like running pell-mell out of t’ school when bell went. And anither thing, you et em fust, separate – times were
hard, you didn’t get mich meat. That way they could last, have em cawd on Monday – If you were lucky and they
had’nt been pinched on Sunday night. Some folk like to em to have treacle ont -which is a bit like the French job.
But Tate and Lyle is hardly “confiture”.

Naw,when a man’s abroad, been foreign like. Had plenty Chinese and a curry or two. T’Last thing he wants is
a flimsy froggie frappe. He wants a Yorkshire And when he’s got outside em, ‘e know he’s YAM.

Being cooked by hubby

Well done hubby. I find it quite therapeutic really. Did spiced pork with sweet potato yesterday but did it at lunchtime so I didn’t have to prepare anything after the street party.

Chicken and meat salad, no time for cooking after the street party.

London
