I put this post on my blog, can you think of any old favourites that you'd like to buy in the shops if someone made them available?

I remember years ago taking my girlfriend (Mrs P) home for a meal cooked by my father, my Mother was away at the time. He cooked belly Pork in a shallow frying pan, with it he did mashed pots and peas, as we sat down he came over with the frying pan and asked my girlfriend if she wanted gravy and poured the fat out of the pan onto her potatoes. :shock:

[quote="brian c"]Bread and Dripping.[/quote

Years ago I was doing a job in Lincolnshire with a mate from Leeds assisting me. At 10 am we went for a cup of tea my mate asked for a couple of slices of fat bread, it was their way of asking for bread and dripping.
