Names that no-one else would figure out and you wouldn't want to shout in the supermarket" Oh DH can you get some..."

Cream of Toad Soup- no idea why.Heinz Cream of Tomato
Old Mans Underpants- had a family curry meal and huge naan bread in a paper bag. Soft and white tinged with brown
Sausage Quiche- no idea ,its a veggie spinach quiche
Lemon Turd- self explanatory.
Meef Bince- what my DD asked for in veggie lasagne. She meant the quorn and tomatoe sauce and was thinking beef mince.

We have Vaginamite (Vegemite) and Penis Paste (Peanut butter). Causes HUGE hilarity when my parents come to stay.

Love your Lemon Turd. grin

cod liver oil capsules are called "dog pills" - I can't even remember why this confusion arose in the first place.

And ketchup is called red stuff (obviously).

Corn on the cod in our house (ds used to think that was what it was really called).

My dad had some odd ones - for some reason a tomato was a "numney"....

Potato Dauphinoise gets called Potato Dolphins at our house

Same as Knitter - Dauphinoise are dolphin potatoes

A mezzé kind of meal, with loads of picky bits is called a Poopoo platter. No idea where that one came from!

My sister has always called pork crackling "butlins" she is very random though!

bubble and squeak = slop - DS regualary asks Nannan for slop ...

Poppadoms are called "Dr Moose" chez Sutherland. It's something DS used to say.

Chips are "bips", ketchup is "kitchup", and nachos are "snachoes" for the same reason.

Toblerone are "Trombones" thanks to DD.

DH & DD say onion in a really odd way. Like "HuuuuunYuuuun".
