The Food that kept their Upper Lip Stiff!

I read this yesterday & thought it was pretty funny!

So what makes the British so tough back in the old days? What made them
scoff in the face of the certain death at the hands of the Hun? - humbly
declaring - "One simply does, what one must do, for one's King and Country,
...now Tally Ho lads."

The secret to their eccentric bravery was actually their previous
experiences of traditional British food, which made any man feel that they
could conquer anything after surviving a childhood of British foods.

Some examples -
Bath Chaps - Pigs Cheeks smoked and coated in breadcrumbs
Jugged Hare - Hare Blood and mixed with Port
Brawn - Jellied Pig's Head (Steam head for days until all material slips off
skull - collect, add fat jelly and cool to serve)
and let's not forget -
Calf Foot Jelly
Spotted Dick

Anyhow, on another note - a picture of the sun setting last night - Murray ran to grab his camera when he saw how gorgeous the sunset was. Thankfully he did, as in another 5 minutes it was gone!

Spotted Dick, although a heinous, phallic name, is quite a good dessert!

Brittish food - not exactly lean (nor tasty) cuisine. But hell, most countries have something made out of bowels! :)

Stiff upper lip... at least it's not a curled-back-in-repulsion-lip!

I agree! I love the DESSERT spotted dick (it's sort of like a bread pudding with raisons in it -very good!)
