This blogging lark has been an interesting ride. I've met some cracking people and shared a lot of advice. Little did I know that the blog world had it's own game called Tag in which fellow bloggers 'tag' each other and ask a random question. As a man who can't resist a list, it is with great sorrow that I produce my 2nd Tag list in as many weeks. This one came courtesy of the wonderful Great Big Veg Challenge, but I doubt any of my facts can better Charlotte's sprout on the gob for 2 hours trick! I now tag William of The Boy Done Food, my brother Darren on Daz's Almost Daily Dose, and Margot of Coffee and Vanilla.
7 Random Food Facts
1 - When I was 2, apparently all I wanted to eat were processed cheese triangles. Lots of them and nothing else.
2 - As an adult I will eat anything, but as a child I hated certain vegetables. I used to hide the turnip or cabbage under my mashed potato and tell my mam I was full. It worked now and again. When it didn't, it hurt.
3 - A delicacy of the young David Hall household was kippers with jam on bread, yum!
4 - When I was in the Navy, for some reason I had it in my head that if I ever went to
5 - When I first started getting into cooking, I thought I was the best cook in the world when I found out that rubbing garlic onto toast made it into 'one of those bruschetta things the Italians eat man'. When I tried to impress my family with a 3 course meal, starting with roast tomato bruschetta, I consumed so much wine that I ended up serving garlic-less soggy tomatoes on toast. It has been a long journey.
6 - Can you remember that Creme Egg advert in the 70s where a man was fired from a cannon into a warehouse full of Creme Eggs? I wrote to Jim'll Fix It asking to be that man in a re-enactment of the advert. Jim didn't fix it for me and I still harbour bitter thoughts.
7 - The food was so bad in the Navy that I survived on Pot Noodles and King Size Mars Bars. And I still managed to be the fittest lad on the ship. Somebody please explain.
