Sunday tea

Sunday tea: Tinned ham.Two lettuce leaves. A whole tomato. A whole spring onion. Three slices of cucumber.Heinz salad cream. White bread and butter/marge. Tinned fruit salad. Carnation milk. Anybody have anything different?

Re: Sunday tea

Sounds good to me. A few variations would have been: -Tinned tuna chunks(mashed to make them go further); malt vinegar on the lettuce leaves (Webbs Wonderful) Salad Cream was unknown; a couple of radish (French Breakfast) from the allotment now buried beneath Magnet Joinery; tinned apricot slices (mandarin segments if there was company); and to follow up either home-baked macaroons and rock buns or a slice of bought Battenburg (Mountbatten) cake (not that we were attached to our Germanic regal betters). On occasions the enjoyment of this feast was affected by the incompleteness of "Friday's homework".

Re: Sunday tea

We were usually at my Nans in Lawnswood Rd for Sunday tea. Definitely not complete without Jelly and Custard, sometimes with stewed Rhubarb. (remember those two characters on Childrens TV?)

Re: Sunday tea

i was still having almost identical Sunday teas in the early seventies...I guess my parents liked to keep the tradition of "good Yorkshire food" alive.
Battenburg was a special treat, more often home-baked scones and buns

more to add: "tongue", horrible squashed tinned strawberries, Hovis bread, garibaldi biscuits.
