I have the family history bug for researching both my own family history and that of friends. If your interest is in families of the Fylde in Lancashire, this site is for you, with many photographs to enhance interest. I'll also be looking at my Scottish Donaldson connections, hints and tips, and stories that appeal. So read on, or even better, sign up as a follower. Do get in touch - I would love to hear from others who share my enthusiasm for family history fun.
This was an easy topic to write about. "My Least Favourite" had to be the offerings at school dinners. Like most people I hated them, especially the fatty meat, liver, red cabbage, sprouts and anything with hot milk such as custard and the milk puddings - rice, tapioca (nicknamed frog spawn or fish eye pud!) and semolina where I tried to eke out the miserable spoonful of jam to disguise the awful taste. Also among my dislikes, soggy bread & butter pudding and Queen's pudding (apart from the meringue topping), Menus did not seem to change much over my 13 years of school life.
I must admit I was a fussy and unadventurous eater as a child and it took me a long time to try anything new such as pizza and Chinese food. I am now into healthy eating, so will eat vegetables (even sprouts), I would not touch as a child.
But "No" - I have never come to like any of those awful school dinner dishes.
