Spaghetti? Why did you say that? Thanks for doing the quiz, as always, Tandy!! I hope you are having a wonderful day (perfect weather!)
I know that he was fed spaghetti in prison and this has stayed a favourite food of his 🙂 Enjoy your Sunday!
… I am beginning to doubt my answer!!! Please check ALL my answers!! Enjoy the week!! hugs and xxxx
it does not really matter, as sometimes various sources can differ on issues. Finocchio translates directly to fennel. Hunger For Freedom is a book on Madiba’s food http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2009/jul/20/nelson-mandela-food-south-africa – I found this on google this morning 🙂
I love bubble and squeak, especially mashed potatoes with finely chopped cabbage and a big dollop of butter, absolute yum.. c
this is another dish I have yet to try 🙂
Three cheers for Bubble and Squeak – I make it here and translated it word for word into Spanish. I think they think I´m bonkers!
what a giggle! I must try and make some 🙂
Oh you’re good!
Bubble and squeak must come in a variety of leftovers for sure, as my eastender buddy makes it with roasted potatoes, and a few other leftovers, ( cant recall exactly what as it’s been a while, bangers maybe ) but, I’m pretty sure there was no cabbage in it, and sort of frittatas it all together with eggs…All I know, is it was delicious.
I like the sound of that!
