Well another summer is over and we are back on the ration. On Sunday we listened to the original radio recording of the announcement of war, quite apt at the moment given the concerns over North Korea.
I decided today to cook a recipe from the 1940s experiment blog. Carolyn posts lots of original recipes and as she has over 170 it’s a great go to when I don’t know what to make.
As my original woods ware Iris plates arrived ( significantly smaller that modern ones !) I decided to christen them with their first war time meal for many years.
This was delicious – war time cauliflower cheese with bacon ( using 3 rashers and 50g cheese for 4 people) jacket potato and steamed veg. Big hit with the kids who are normally not that keen on cauliflower. Full tummys and empty plates for not that many calories. Definitely one to make again !
