    Made some pizza dough in the bread maker, enough to make three large and two individual size. Ham and pineapple on one (don’t shoot me, my mom likes it), smoked salmon and rocket (my wife asked for it), ham and salami plus salami and anchovy for the seven year old.
    Going to try some pasta in the bread maker if I can get some durum wheat flour.

    Propper butchers Faggots, buttery mash, asparagus & tenderstem, and homemade red wine gravy. The carer has Fillet steak instead of Faggots.

    Yummy scrummy.

    Do proper butcher's faggots taste of liver? I like Brains but I had butcher's ones once and was put off.

    I don't think so, as I don't like liver, but Brains faggots are too mushy. Husband tried them (he hates offal) and said he couldn't taste liver at all, he liked them, but only to try, not as a meal for him.

    I tried his steak, and hated it.

    Thoroughly reccomened Perrys in Eccleshall, both were delicious.

    Not necessarily, it may be worth trying faggots from different sources. Or stick with Mr Brains.
    Personally don't like Mr Brains, a less 'fagotty' faggot it would be hard to find IMHO.

    I still find it strange how tastes change as you get older, as a child I spent a lot of time at my nans, we ate liver, kidneys, faggots, tripe, skirt of beef, trotters, brains, beef cheeks, mutton, heart, haslet and tongue and I thought nothing of it. We scooped mould off jam & yogurt, pared rind & mould of cheese, and that's how it was....

    Untill I was about 8yrs old and was sent to the butchers across the Rd to buy some sliced tongue. I thought 'Tongue' was just a name, like haslet, and had no idea it was a real tongue till the butcher slapped it in the slicer & proceeded to cut it up.

    That did it for me & I questioned everybit of meat I ever ate from then on, not realising what they really were.

    The only thing I still eat is Faggots and mutton, when available. How things change.
