Prawn cocktail for starters.
Tinned pineapple and ice cream for dessert.

I still remember the rhubarb pies my Mum used to make. They were great with ice cream too.

I love rhubarb crumble. I love blackberry and apply crumbles, too. When I lived in Somerset, we used to wander down the lane outside our house with a basket and collect blackberries from the hedgerows. Them were the days.

Oh! yes, I can remember going blackberry picking as well. :icon_biggrin:

Blackberry and apple crumble is also good, plus just apple crumble :icon_biggrin:

Crikey Perry, you have got me started now, It has been ages since I made those puddings. :icon_biggrin:

Where I grew up we needed a long forked stick for protection against snakes. It was still good fun though,and easy pocket money.

We had rats, mice and wild rabbits in our hedgerows and sometimes a fox hiding out. :oops

Anyone recall the chowmein some of our mums made using cabbage grated, mince meat and packet of chicken noodle soup. I found it in an old magazine. Pretty horrid today but as a kid I think I loved it . Lol. Thankyou for the fabulous contributions.

I still cook chow mein like that,but instead of chicken noodle soup I use a Continental Chow Mein mix. Combine with a bowl of fried noodles and it is like eating in a chinese restaurant.
It is one of my g/kids favourites.
