When I was a teenager, if we had run out of biscuits (usually Friday, as Saturday was "big shop" day), we used to butter Weetabix and eat them with our cuppa. They were lovely by the way, a bit messy though. I quite fancy one now.
|Nicey replies: Oh yes we have all done that I think at some time or another, but the younger members of staff haven't been exposed to it as yet. Maybe I'll conduct some field trials on them at the weekend.. meaning I'll find a field for us to try it in.
We often pass by the Weetabix factory close to Kettering, which is tremendously exciting given the number of lorries there that look like giant packs of Weetabix.
|Dear Wifey and Nicey,|
I can not allow the disparaging remarks about Oreos go unchallenged. The Oreo is a wonderful cookie (biscuit) and friend to many. It may not have the true chocolatey goodness of some others, but it is sweet and chrunchy, and that is quite a lot. It dunks in milk like no other. It goes with tea or coffee. Also, taking apart the Oreo and licking the frosting off before eating the cookie can be both fun and erotic if performed correctly. I will save my lecture on the goodness and usefullness of peanut butter for another time. Long live Oreos!!
||Dear Nicey and the wife,|
Hurrah for the new butter icon. I was particularly pleased to note the use of a butter dish.
It is quite some time since I have tasted butter and as I was applying my low fat, heart friendly, usable-straight-from-the-fridge olive based spread to my multi-grain bread this morning, I wondered if some of your younger readers had even tasted real butter.
I would be interested to know whether the butter dish is still in common use give that most butter-like substances these days come in their own plastic tub. Perhaps a survey is in order.
|Nicey replies: Our fridge came with one as one of its accessories, it rules. That's some ASDA Smartprice butter in there by the way. Go on go treat yourself and buy some and just have it on some crumpets or toast, or maybe even toasted hot cross buns. You'll be alright.
Any chance of you providing us all with car stickers stating " I BREAK FOR TEA" and "BISCUITS ON BOARD" ?
|Nicey replies: I believe we must have parked next to you on Sunday whilst taking the younger members of staff on a field trip. According to the many stickers already on your car you 'love donkey sanctuaries, and have done for years', you also 'love Whitstable Bay', 'Scotland' and of course the 'AA'. Perhaps we'll invent the large transparent car sticker with the tiny words written in one corner saying 'I love being able to see out of my windows'.
If you are going to talk about glueing two biscuits togther with something, the ONLY choice is a pair of digestives joined with chocolate spread. Heaven !
Rich tea works as well but not as good as your proper digestive. The spread needs to be the smooth stuff, not the type with nuts in it.
I think I feel the need to go and make one of these now...
