Chris Snowdon’s Winteringham Sunday Breakfast
.... a whimsical, nostalgic piece ('though I say it myself) and perhaps it should have the rider that time travel is necessary for an authentic replication.
It's inspired by my Grandmother's Sunday breakfasts during the 50's and early 60's when she'd be catering for up to a dozen including grandchildren and their parents.
Winteringham Sunday Breakfast
Send any available child up to the Co-Op for a couple of pounds of bacon (unfortunately it would be Danish but it would be freshly cut, from a side of bacon, on the bacon slicer and wrapped in greaseproof paper).
Tell them to get four pounds of Winteringham Sausages from the butchers in West End whilst they're out. Give child a half crown and tell them not to forget the change and to make sure that they give the Co-Op your Divi Number.
When child eventually arrives back with sausages and bacon put them in the meat safe (no - not the child - the meat).
Remind husband that you'll need a dozen well ripened tomatoes for frying in the morning and tell him that he'd better pop down to the green house to make sure there will be some. Tell him to dig up some potatoes from the garden, on the way back. Tell him to make sure that there will be enough fresh eggs from the hens in the chicken run as well.
“Thought I gather a few pounds of mushrooms ... and here it is!”
