for the first time in about 25 years

DP is in the kitchen now, cooking it

Don't know whether to feel excited or nauseous

One of those dishes which you remember with fondness but the reality is somewhat different

Is it ready?

Did you like it?

Did you have onion gravy? I make lovely onion & pepper gravy

Can I come over?

Oh yum, lucky you, I've been craving that since it got chillier.

Nigel Slater's recipe suggests wrapping the bangers in pancetta & putting wholegrain mustard in the batter. Pimped up toad grin

It's still cooking...

Am so hungry I'd eat my own arm atm so will probably enjoy it whatever

I believe an onion gravy is being prepared... but dp now distracted by Bruce Parry <sigh> so God knows what'll be served up wink

(I love Nigel Slater)

Are recipes like baby names? You think you are being so original, then everyon else is doing it too. I made toad for the DC last Friday for the first time ever.

Well we have it every 9 days so I'm not sure if it's representative of a trend

Well, it was gorge

The culinary pleasure enhanced by Bruce chucking his guts up in front of me whilst I devoured it hmm
