All Work and No Play....




Make MrsB a very dull lady! So a Hen Do in Blackpool was probably the highest dose of the fun pill available without prescription!


I urge anyone who has not had 'square sausage' or Lorne sausage as the sensible, if a bit posh people, at M&S call it, to have it now, this week or at very least this weekend! If done properly as they do it Scotland, each slice should be eaten in a slice of Plain Loaf or 'square breid'. When sliced in half the piece of bread will fit the sausage perfectly. Add brown sauce if desired (though I feel this is a Blackpool addition) and a good hot mug of tea! As Billy Connelly said in his book 'Billy', in his list on how to live well:

'Above all, go to Glasgow at least once in your life and have a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. When you feel the tea coursing over your spice-singed tongue, you'll know what I mean when I say: 'It's good to be alive!'.

Its so true. As salt and vinegar go with chips, strawberries and champagne, chocolate and cherries, Laurel and Hardy: so too tea and square sausage are a marriage made in Glaswegian heaven! Best hangover cure EVER!

"Square Sausage"...... now THAT took me back. My mother (a Scot living in England) used to always request visitors to bring it with them as a treat for us. Wonderful post, as usual. . . Work hard, play hard! x

Both my parents are scots on the 'wrong' side of the border!! Dad is Glaswegian....with a pleasantly modulated accent (or so he is told!!)! so this is what we grew up with! Love it! You can get it in M&S in Blackpool thanks to "Glasgee week' where bus loads of holidaying Glaswegians descend on Blackpool! Good see you here as always, look forward to your lovely comments! x

You look fab!
I love square sausage. Yum. Too many easter holidays in Scotland!

Rhiannon said...

oh how FAB! I love the holly golightly look

As for square sausages, I have to admit to being very much confused (behold the softy southener...). Are they a bit like the random sausage burgers that macdonalds did for breakfast way back when i used to eat there?

Mrs B said...

scream....horror....NOOOOOOOOO!! They are a national institution! actually they are probaly a bit low quality, what am I talking about! they taste a bit like richmond skinless sausages but a bit spicier....but there is just something perfect about them, my husband a great bread eater would say its because you can so easily slap them between two bits of bread! I think it is more subtle then that! the cup of tea is completely integral to their consumption please please try them! xx

MelMel said...

Mrs B.....where do you buy them from?

I think Olly would just love them!
:>))x

Mrs B said...

The only place I have regularly seen them in England is in Morrisons, which also stocks plain loaf. But Tescos occassionally do to, so you may be lucky and just find it in your local big supermarche! oooooooooh feed your man it, he will lurve it I promise!! Why don't you push the boat out and have some Irn Bru too!!

Mrs B said...

So, you "young thing".... dare I ask, did you read "OOr Wullie" and "The Broons" as a child? If not, ask your dad and mum..... BOTH my parents were Scots living south of the border, and your post made me so reflective. The comment re Irn Bru made me roar! :O)

Mrs B said...

hee hee!! My dad loves them, we had the Broons annual a couple of times and I think currently there is a Broons recipe book out!! Hilarious! Sure there is some Irn Bru inspired recipes in there! x

MelMel said...
