    Pudding can be used in several different ways a pudding Supper in Scotland is a sausage dinner with Chiops (French fries)

    Pudding club = Pregnant

    Pudding is a mish mash of lots of things thrown together and all mixed up in a pastry too

    Nancy's Canadian, Wazza. And they don't call it cutlery, they call it 'flat ware'.:shocked:? Don't know why, it ain't flat. And they don't use a knife and fork simultaneously, they cut all the food up, lay down the knife, then shovel the food up with a fork...
    Booze: Rebellion Mutiny (pint)
    Starters: Chinese mixed starter (spring roll, seaweed,satay, aromatic crispy lamb, prawn toasts)
    Main Course: Same as Wazza - crispy duck & pancakes
    Cheese & Biscuits (not a pudding person)
    Coffee and a bit of Cadbury's chocolate... Mmmmmm!

    Ooh, I like dining out. Wazza, I am gonna go with you on the wine I think but will need to get a bottle each or I will share yours then we'll get another. Starter for me would be tiger prawns in a sweet chilli dip. Main course would be guinea fowl (if any) if not I will have a cod and prawn mornay with veg and chips if possible. Pudding has to be hot choc fudge cake and ice cream every time!! Stuffed & drunk. 2 of my favourite words!!

    Wazza goes to posh restaurants obviously! I don't like starters so will skip that bit. I don't drink alcohol so usually go for apple & mango J2O (a fruit drink) but a lot of places don't serve it so it'd have to be ice cold water - really really cold. Main would be really well done steak and chips, and for pudding I'm with Ace and Cake - warm chocolate fudge cake with ice cream.

    Appetizer-a humous plate (just a little one-being a bit greedy here...)

    Salad-mixed greens with oil 'n vinegar

    Main course-Baked salmon, rice, some other seasonal veggie

    Desert-Tiramisu and an espresso.

    Aaahhh.

    The funny thing is - most Brit manners are the model for ours here. But eating with a fork and knife in each hand, in the part of Merika in which I live, is bad manners. Even though it *looks* bad to me (because of my parental nagging, er, training) I have still always thought it was funny that it looks bad to us.

    We don't cut all the food up CC. Only for babies. Its much more involved that that: With knife & fork - cut a piece, set down knife, move fork to dominant hand, insert food in mouth, move fork to other hand, pick up knife, start over. ;) Down south here we call it *silverware.*

    I wonder how we developed the one-implement-at-a-time approach. Maybe to slow us down...

    I remember a time when a restaurant owner was showing my sisters and I how to eat pasta (by holding the strands on one's fork and rolling it in a spoon held in the other hand.) My parents watched silently and then simultaneously jumped on us (when the restaurant owner had left) saying: *Don't you EVER eat pasta that way!*

    OMG! really diane? I seriously have to take some Ettiquette lessons. I know not to eat with your mouth open and to not put your elbows on the table, but not using a fork and a knife at the same time?:O or not eating pasta by rolling it with a fork? :O In that case I will have water for the entire meal. Or is there a special modest way of drinking??? Im so confused. I'm going to look like a cavewoman at this meal :|

    Nancy - Canadians eat like Brits, in my experience. I'm not talking about the RIGHT way to eat. Since that doesn't exist. I'm talking about how funny it is that we can feel like something of this nature is right or wrong. :P Joe has the right idea - just get the food into your mouth somehow ;)

    Had a lovely meal in Portugal.
    The most tender piece of fillet steak ever, and a dish of vegs al dente. The cheese cake had the strawberry drizzled around - much much nicer than the thick rind of jam on the supermarket stuff.
    Along with a bottle of the local plonk, it went down very well indeed.

    I don't think Hannah the Postie would like a gooey envelope to put in her bag. She might complain. God knows we give her enough trouble with a 300 yard footpath to trudge up...
    I've never seen Hagen Daz bars. But then I usually go for different sort of ice cream to that on principle because the wife of the bloke who invented the ad campaign annoys me.

    Wow - that is an amazingly obscure reason for that principle. LOL :D

    So - we have another character in the cast: Hannah the Postie. I love it. :D :D
    Next time you see her, ask what kind of packaging she would recommend for mailing an ice cream bar. I was thinking a mini refrigerator but now I have to consider that trudge down the pathway. Maybe some kind of little tube/hyperbolic chamber...

    A cryogenic unit, perhaps? Still a bit of a bugger to get in the bag/on the bike for poor Hannah.
    I specialise in obscure reasons, you ought to know that by now...:)

    See, that pin thing is a rumour put about by mums to keep their brats busy for an hour, Cake.You can just break 'em open and ping the seeds out.

    Nancy - I even use pomegranates as a metaphor when talking with my clients. I hope you are able to find these bars Nancy. They are soooo goooood! Rebecca just told me that Breyer's makes a pomegranate frozen fruit bar. Mmmmm.

    CC - Please tell Hannah the Postie that I think she needs to toughen up. I mean after all it'd be, what, another 50-60 pounds...? This is ICE CREAM we are talking about! What if I add one in for her as well? Would that help>

    I've never heard the pin thing before you guys. We used to eat the creamy inside out of chocolate covered mints with a bobby pin when I was a kid though. Do they still even have bobby pins?

    I dunno...Wazza's a bobby, ask him! :D
    The pin thing is, I realise now, a cruel time-buying ruse on the part of my wily mother. You're probably far too intelligent to have fallen for such a low trick.

    That's the whole point, Nancy. It then keeps the brats out of mum's hair for an hour instead of the actual 10 minutes it takes if you just break it open.

    Health and safety would have a fit about it! It'll be deemed cruelty to children, both because you can buy it ready-extracted in a pot to eat wtih a spoon, and the little bra.... darling might stick the pin in themselves.

    Trev - I lived with some Australians when I spent a few months in Greece. That post just brought back good memories. Well, except maybe vegemite ... gaak! Don't know what the deserts were.

    Huge meal there!

    Bobby pin - its a thin metal clip used to put your wet hair up in curls for that ringlet effect. Also good for gutting chocolate covered mints...

    Stubbies are short-necked bottles. and Vegemite is like good old British Marmite (not my cup of tea).
    My mom would probably eat it though (she's British), she eats just about anything. Rationing during the war and all that.
