I am informed that 'Dopiaza' which one sees on menus actually means "Two onions".

I recall those days when Public Houses were only open from 12.00 - 14.00 on Sunday afternoons and good folk used to imbibe copious amounts before returning home to devour a darned good roast.
Those were the days when 'Mine Hosts' used to provide free snacks at the Sunday lunchtime session.

Very difficult to get decent lamb here, so I do miss the Roast Lamb, but what I really miss (& I tried to buy it at Xmas) is the Golden Syrup pudding you used to get, have they stopped making them? I think Lyle's used to make them. That alongside Vanilla Ice Cream, custard or even evaporated milk.

Not that I know of....... but

a simple steamed sponge pudding with a V E R Y generous squeeze of one of these in the bottom of the basin is bang on. A regular winter treat for he-who-must-be-fed.

30 years ago I was in a pub in Newcastle on a Sunday and was having a pee when I noticed quite a few customers plus the chef also having a pee and very few washing their hands afterwards ( including the chef) and I have never touched the freebie bar snacks since

I was very ill one night after indulging in bar snacks (nuts etc)
Defo not booze, as it was just a few bottles lager.
pissy hands (or worse!)

We've got a small chest freezer in the shed, which we found a couple of joints in the bottom of. Going to have roast beef for the next 2 Sundays/weekends before we replenish the freezer with new stuff from the local butchers.
Quality meat is the key. Buy the best bit of meat you can afford. Although you might be able to get away with a bit of clever cooking with some beef cuts.

Agreed. I have a 40 minute return drive every Friday to an excellent butcher after I've been to Sainsburys as the quality of the meat is so much higher - even humble mince meat.

I'm sure that if you closed your eyes whilst eating a Sainsbury joint you wouldn't be able to tell what it was.

How about Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference? Waitrose meat at the butcher counter has always been good. There are decent butchers dotted around in each area outside of London that used to either be a village or small town that is now getting larger. Warlingham, Caterham, Banstead. They all have one or two. If you are a big Tesco town, probably not.
