Pickled eggs yes! Did anyone on here experience the fad of a pickled egg in a packet of cheese and onion crisps after a game of football on a Saturday? As for Xmas anyone had that Heston blumental xmas pud with the orange inside? From wait Rose? Bit pricey but well worth a try. The only time I shop in waitrose.

Can't stand Christmas pudding (what a heathen I know) with everybody passing the cream and everyone saying yes to a coffee, sod that. I just want to leave the table, go outside, one massive fart then back inside for the big sleep (always a good idea to remember to leave the table first).. M&S (new recipe) mince pies are well nice.

in our house the person who got that then had to place it between your knees walk without it slipping to the floor and try and drop it into an egg cup on the floor....ahh those were the days none of those electronic games for us!! then the traditional game of monopoly that left family members trying to do deals with each other only to find out because you had the last roast potato certain others would not deal with you and rather mortgage properties than do a deal lol

Monopoly? Is that still your 1 St game still in progress m6? Bloody game takes hours, months, years to play! Can you believe we put sixpence in those puds? Surely that's the thin end of the wedge that ended up as Russian roulette! As for games even now my other halves family still play games at Xmas and I can't wait to play! I ordered a dance mat for this year for a laugh, but have realised it is coming from abroad and should arrive by January the second! P.s do you want me to recycle that suitcase of white fivers?

Maybe the youth of today could learn a bit about managing their money if they played more monopoly!

Loftus pies are mince pies made by a smallish, but still pretty widely distributed pie-maker in the suburb of Loftus in Sydney's South (BTW, the amateur football club from down that way is called Marton Hammers and uses, probably illegally, the old West Ham logo and colours on its kit: http://www.martonhammers.com.au/club-info). But I digress: Loftus mince pies are pretty good as mince pies go. The only truly delectable ones, though, were made by a Mytelinian Baker in Oatley, now retired.

I get my mince pies from the butchers. Beef is best but Turkey just for Xmas and more healthy.
