Now, ladies (?) and gentlemen (????), the BEANS AND BACON!

Honestly, that's one of my favo(u)rite ration menus!

and now, the dessert: Fruit dumplings & Custard sauce. It's "notd badt" to "goodt" but I guess one has to be born British to fully appreciate it :lol:

:D Nice review, I wouldn't be so sure on that Stef, its an OK meal but I don't think I've ever eaten Fruit Dumplings and Custard that hasn't come from a ration pack.

Hopfully tomorrow I'll review the British Mushroom Omlette :shock:

I would give it a try too :D "Fruit Dumplings" sounds interesting to me.
Maybe you know our German dumplings, tennis ball sized potatoe dumplings. Served with sauce/gravey and roast porc/beef

Hi,
I'm still alive!

Gaz, so that's not sold in those little plastic pots you can see everywhere in the British supermarkets? You know, the pots full of chocolate yogurt that you mix with marmalade (supplied in a little compartment on the side) and fried onions (from a third compartment) and then you can dip some Swiss cheese covered bread sticks (from the fourth compartment) into the mix...
Well, just kidding ...although I've seen my English colleagues eating some really weird variants of those snacks :wink:

Housil, nothing to see with the knödel, in fact it's very similar to the Grießspeise in the German EPA's and it tastes almost the same: just imagine some little Grießspeise balls and raisins floating in a vanilla sauce.

Shall I test the Lancashire hotpot at 12?
