Wensleydale cheese and strawberry jam sandwiches are nice!

I like that too - any cheese with most red/blue/black jams although blue cheeses are a bit strange - they taste great with really strong dark marmalade though - with lots of peel! *slobbers a lot*

Brie and Camembert-type cheese are especially lush with jam - Cranberry seems to work best though, nice and tart :D

My friend was in the advert for those! So of course I went straight out & bought some. Can't say I was that impressed though.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

If we have digressed to obscure links people have to the almost rich and famous, one of my friends was one of the school kids in the Boomtown Rats - I don't like Mondays, video.

I'v got no rich or famous friends...that I know of (one of them could be fighting crime during nights of course :D )

I used to love bread with raw onions and cheese on top, and there was a time I used ketchup on absolutely everything.
As a kid my sister and I made up a drink of coca cola with vanilla and caramel ice cream in it - very nice :D

My gran used to make sugar and margarine sandwiches - couldn't eat that now though. I used to eat the sugar cubes as well

I liked tomato soup with boiled potato in it -
Hubby thought it was weird but not as bad as my mums boiled fish in milk Yuk!

That reminds me that I used to drink Coca-Cola with salted peanuts. It was better to put the peanuts inside the drink and let the juice ferment for about 5 minutes though.

WannabeAngua - A fizzy drink and vanilla ice cream is lovely. I still also like a cheese and raw onion sandwich, or failing that, a corned beef and onion sandwich - providing I'm staying indoors for the rest of the day!

Nowt strange about raw onion & cheese, Chris. I was just agreeing with WannabeAngua that it's enjoyable. I love raw onions.
Mind you, I also enjoy frozen frozen peas. I like to put them in my mouth and let them defrost on my tongue.

Have you tried pancakes with marmite?

Nothing wrong at all Chris. I would still eat it but that would mean no good-night kisses from neither my big or wee man.....and a raw onion sandwich is nice, but not that nice :wink:

A friend of ours eats his toast with bananana and mayonnaise and swears it tastes exellent :shock:

I was introduced to the joys of Cheddar and raw onion by a lovely old couple I lodged with in Cricklewood in the late 60's. A doorstep of fresh bread with a hunk of cheddar and an onion, all washed down with a large mug of cocoa was my supper every night for several years.:D

I also enjoy Bourne-Vita sandwiches.:D Ovaltine isn't the same. :wink:
I think the answer lies in the soil, ooo arrr!
