Travels with Bubbie

Toad in the Hole

by Bubbie

It’s official… the conversations at the weekly luncheon at the Manchester Town Hall have taken a dramatic turn to crazy land. Last Thursday, you’ll recall, we discussed “Spotted Dick” and today we talked about “Toad in the Hole” … another British delicacy. I have a theory about this… the food is so bad over there that they have to come up with funny names to make it more appealing! My friend Audrey was having a smashing good time making subtle innuendos regarding these two dishes. Since “Toad in the Hole” is an entree, Yorkshire pudding with Sausages, you can have that first and then follow it up with a bit of “Spotted Dick” for dessert. I am still waiting on a recipe for this “Spotted Dick.” I am then going to make it and bring it to the luncheon so everyone can have a piece… of “Spotted Dick” that is.

Have a great weekend everyone… mine will be both good and bad… my exchange student Carolina, from Brazil, is leaving me Saturday morning after six months. She expected to be here for another six months but it is not to be. Her mom arrived yesterday from Brazil to fly home with her which was nice for all of us because we so wanted to meet her. I’m going to have to tell my new beau to be especially nice to me this weekend since I will be sad… hmmm that certainly has possibilities don’t you think?… and don’t forget FOOTBALL! Sunday afternoon the New England Patriots will continue their quest for perfection. I for one have no doubts they will achieve it!

Ciao for now… Bubbie & Me

Thought for the day: My mechanic told me, “I couldn’t repair your brakes, so I made the horn louder.”
