Bizz-e, Bizz-ee Bizz-eee! ๐Ÿ

It’s only been a week, since I was babbling on, seems like yonks, however, for want of nothing better to do, I thought perhaps I might come and have a ramble here, and brighten up your lives a little.

Whoever it was, that called out ”A very little’‘, can leave right now; thank you veryย  ย  much!

A few weeks back, the War Office declared ‘WAR’ ; which, I suppose, is what War Offices are meant to do. after which there wasย  an armistice, of sorts, followed by an ‘uneasy peace’. These conflicts have occurred at various times over the last 40 plus years, and, I suppose if we live for another 40, there will be just as many more!

C’est la guerre!

You might notice that it isย ‘la’ not ‘le’.ย La being the feminine, (something the French are wont to do with their language – a sexist thing) and therefore is something which is entirely relevant, in the aforementioned ‘Declaration of Hostilities’ ; what with me being a peace loving soul ( got it right that time Lesley) of course. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿป

The armistice, followed by the uneasy peace, commenced on the Friday 16th November; how can I be so sure of the date? Well may you ask.

On that date, I fancied ‘Fishermans Pie’ for my dinner, I hadn’t made one for quite some time. I conveyed my thoughts to the ever present Coco,๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพand the War Office, happening to overhear, stated that that would be nice, and that she’d like some too; which made it easy.

I now had a willing messenger, to go get what I needed. To be on the safe side I wrote out a shopping list of what I wanted, and from where, and off she trotted, – actually she drove, the store where I prefer to get my fish, is a couple of k’s away, and it’s a bit of a trot, not like the local stores, that she normally walks to.

So that evening, I had my ‘Fishermans Pie’ and I must admit it was quite delicious.

Nowย  you’re all dyingย  to know, ”how can he be so sure of the date’;; it’s the 16th November for those that’ve forgotten! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ I took some pictures of it before and after it went into the oven, and somehow the trusty old Sanyo point and shoot planted the date thereon ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

 

Now why did I shove in 5 photo’s when 2 would have sufficed?

‘Cos it looks nicer that’s why!ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

Oh and by the bye; my granddaughters are coming down to stay for a few days, arriving in 48 hours: might just do a post telling you why!

  1. I had to look up a recipe to see what’s in the pie, but it sounds pretty tasty. I could certainly use a new way to cook fish.

    Have fun with your adorable granddaughters!

    1. They certainly are tasty, the only way I can get the WO to eat fish is either a pie or a kedgeree . I’ve always been a fish eater, I suppose that’s because during the war we always had a plentiful supply of fish, I cannot recall eating meat very often.
      I’m looking forward to my granddaughters with some trepidation; they’ll run me off my feet. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. So what fish do you use? I don’t care for too much salmon in mine!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I’m not fond of salmon either. I prefer cod, the WO doesn’t like fish, except for smoked cod, ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ so I usually use that as the base. I dob it with butter, and a good sprinkling of black pepper, then poach it in milk. I also toss in prawns/shrimp ( I don’t poach them), I do like a bit of crab too , but she doesn’t, so I don’t. I will not forgo my prawns so I get her lot too
      I actually prefer ling to the smoked cod, it’s very similar in texture to cod, same family I think, but same thing she doesn’t like it!

        5. I seem to recall our chish and fip shop used to sell those to us, They came in a little paper bag like an upturned forage cap.
          When we went to England in 2005, the WO wanted to see where I grew up and that fish & chip shop was still there. I went in to say hello, and was greeted by a very large man in a turban and beard who spoke with an accent from the sub continent
          . The interior was about the same as I remembered from 1959
