Made myself homemade Yorkshire puddings the other day. No meat, no gravy - just the puddings.  Mmmm. Can't wait to try the real deal in York in a few weeks! 

Most people I know these days buy frozen Yorkshires.  I guess I am guilty of that as well. Shame on me.

I have known people from Yorkshire who say that Yorkshires or Yorkies, are served as a separate course served with Jam (Conserve)  My wife who comes from Yorkshire, Sheffield, says she has never heard of that.  

When we were children we had Toad in the Hole, sausages in a Yorkshire Pudding.  We also had Chop Toad, Lamb chops in a Yorkshire pudding.

Toad in the Hole! We have pigs in a blanket - sausages (usually hot dogs weiners) wrapped in pastry or biscuit dough & baked.

I was really hoping to get out to meet y'all, but it looks like I'm not going to get any closer to Kent than London. :38_worried: Maybe next time!

They are ridiculously easy. And so tasty!

We have pigs in blankets or piggies in blankets.  They are chipolatas or sometimes cocktail sausages wrapped in bacon, often accompanying Turkey for Christmas lunch.  

When will you be in London?

I know.  But it is easier to get some from the freezer  and pop them in the oven for four or five minutes.  I have not made them for years. I will have to make them again.   We usually serve them with roast beef, but some people serve them with any roast meal.

That sounds tasty.

We had a mish-mash...a little spaghetti, and some left-over chicken from last night.

Hubs tries to do different things on the fifth Sundays of the month. Tomorrow we are going to have a potluck. The theme is Italian, so we will be having spaghetti, lasagna, chicken cacciatore, and chicken alfredo fettucine, along with a couple of salads, and gelato for dessert.

Our members don't know, but we're having  a guest speaker as well (one of the three who filled the pulpit before my hubs became pastor). 

edited to clarify: we aren't having the guest speaker as part of the dinner. LOL

Today, I got a steak out of the freezer, then decided that I couldn't stand up to cook it so I put it back and did a selection of roasted vegetables,   Parsnip, carrot, fennel, celeriac (celery root) red onion, courgette, served with steamed Jersey Royal potatoes and green beans and mushrooms for my wife.  (She feels deprived if she doesn't have mushrooms every day)

Hamburgers, chips (crisps to you, Invicta  ?), baked beans

Yes HC we call them crisps.  I believe they were originally called Game Chips,   Although there is a well known brand here called Kettle Chips, which we use with dips and salsa.

This evening I had ham, vegetable gratin and asparagus.

@Invicta, that question mark was supposed to be a smiley face. LOL - I don't know how it changed to a question mark. The wonders of technology.  Interesting that they used to be called Game Chips. Kettle Chips are here in the states, too. But they are likely different from what you get over there.

We will be having a prelude of my mom's spaghetti she is taking to our first-Sunday-of-the-month-potluck. She also made a cake and some apple dumplings, but we won't get any of that tonight. LOL  (but she DID make an apple pie to keep here, so I guess that's ok...and I'd like to insert a smiley, but don't want it turning to a question mark!).

Apparently in Britain they serve baked beans for breakfast - is that right, Invicta? Seems weird... over here they're a summer picnic favourite and served cold (preferably with potato salad).

I guess some people do.  We don't usually have breakfast.  Kay has a piece of hard cheese as it is supposed to be good for her  osteo perosis.  

On the ferry to France, they have Full English Breakfast,  This consists of Egg (fried or scrambled) bacon, fried bread, baked beans, mushrooms, tomato and hash browns (although I don't think they are English).  Finish off with a couple of slices of toast and  marmalade. served with tea or coffee.  Several times with our ticket we have had a voucher to get two breakfasts for the price of one.  We took the offer once but as we arrive in France in time for lunch we didn't take it again.

Kettle Chips

My favourite used to be Mesquite and Salsa, but they don't that now.

Same company. I've not had them much. Lays is my favorite brand.

@Salyan - you eat baked beans cold? My husband will eat leftovers cold, but mine have to be warm. I'm not fond of most baked beans so I make my own. No brown sugar in mine. I have had them for breakfast when we have some left over.
