Warning : tale of abominable political incorrectness follows:




















I can't look at a sprout without remembering the annual Christmas food fight in our dining hall at Uni - all the food was served in suitable bites sized chunks - roasties, carrots, sprouts, stuffing balls etc - shocking waste of food I know, but great fun. We waited until everyone had been served, then let fly. Once we were all plastered with gravy etc and there was no more ammo, we had pudding, with lashings of lumpy custard. Happy days...

sorry - it's no to sprouts.

I like just about anything else - broccoli, parsnip, turnip, raw fish, tripe ...

but not sprouts.

Very funny.

B U T, I'm not a great lover of sprouts myself, I have one or two on my plate at Christmas as a token gesture, and some years I do actually eat one of them...

Regards, Peter.

That is one of the most disgusting games I've ever played! ill.gif

Sue, I would have hated to have gone to your uni - I can't bear food fights!

And I love sprouts!

Depends how it's cooked I guess - but yes, I quite like it.

One of the best meals I have ever eaten, in the Auvergne last August, tender little parcels - it was wonderful.

Apologies to any veggies reading though.

Ah well, when it's a toss up between snails, frog's legs, chicken gizzards or tripe....... ill.gif

My aversion to tripe goes back to the war when, as a schoolboy in a 'not well off' family, I was not allowed to leave the table until I had finished it. It really was not nice, especially when it had gone cold. I've never eaten it since.

We had some sprouts off our veg plot this weekend. Picked, steamed and eaten within 30 minutes. Never having liked them before, I have to say these were delicious!

Ha, you sound like my dad. He grew up on tripe and, as a result, steadfastly refused to allow the stuff anywhere near his own house. So I was never introduced to its delicate flavours. Actually my dad had lots of experiences I never got a chance to try - tripe, coal mining and prisoner of war camp are just three.
