What do you remember for Sunday Afternoon tea?

Pikelets, Muffins toasted infront of a coke fire?
In about late 1940's brains on toast, roes on toast, tinned peaches,whatever your mum could get hold of to make Sunday tea special. I think all Mums tried!
Not just the 1940's wot do you member?

Tinned peaches and horrible condensed milk when we were forced to go to my Gran's on a Sunday, I can still taste it now!

i'd forgotten the condensed milk.
Tinned peaches yes, but under the circumstances they did their best? today we have it easy.

Yes we do have it easy. My Gran lived almost at the coalface in a Yorkshire mining town and her family were dirt poor but she always made sure we ate well (apart from the condensed milk). Somewhat humbling really, bless her.

with the cliff Adams singers, nearly as bad as condensed milk. cold meat sandwiches and bed early for school in the morning.

We lived at Selby and York for many years when first married.
What memories, Pork butchers, pigs trotters, for Saturday nights suppers.

The Cliff Adams singers. Almost as old as coke?

Prunes and semolina at my Gran's - damaged me for life!

Cliff Adams Singers damaged me for life... I suffer from depression, now I know why.

I can see this turning into The four Yorkshire men sketch. "Prunes and semolina you were lucky" :~)
