€3,700 June 14, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

The report at the weekend in the SBP that the Taoiseach’s office spent €3,700 on food during the negotiations with ‘coalition wannabes’, i.e. the Independents, is kind of telling. A cynic might say that for Enda Kenny it was worth every penny.

My mammy used to make mashed banana sandwiches in the morning for my school lunchbox when I was a freckled lad in short trousers. Strawberry jam sandwiches were an alternative. “€3,700 on food during the negotiations” – it’s nice catering business if you can get it. BTW: A visiting friend recently gave me a present of vacuum packed Wild Atlantic Smoked Salmon, which only cost €2.50 in Supervalu. It made six sandwiches with homegrown lettuce and purchased cucumber and some chutney spread on it for added flavour. I drank a bottle of Bulmers cider. Ah these sunny days of cider with Rosie and smoked salmon cucumber sandwiches…

Yum. Just in sandwiches my gran used to make mine when I was a little kid , she was English born in 1912 and the war had an impact on her thinking – marmite sandwiches , sugar sandwiches and there was even more unusual combinations .

When we lived in Newfoundland in the late ’70s, we were introduced to the delights of the ketchup sandwich and the mustard sandwich.

Anytime there are too many spuds boiled in our house,Mrs Roddy fries them up the next day and very good they taste too.This was a common occurence when I was growing up too.Generations of South Derry women seem to have passed this trick on to their daughters!

Bananas, sugar and marmite sandwiches in one’s youth.

When I were young we was lucky to get saw dust between two pieces of damp newspaper for school dinner!

All in the same sandwich! Banana AND strawberry jam, marmite AND cheese. Gastronomy.

We were simple people. My ma made me cheese sandwiches. She’d put the cheese through a grater yoke so it would come out in thin, spaghetti-like pieces. The class bully would corner me at lunchtime and demand (at least) one of my spaghetti cheese sandwiches. Bar steward.
