This is the kind of food that Heather describes as “warm pap” but I LOVED it. I’ve been wanting to make this ever since I saw the recipe way back in December. Sweetcorn is my most favourite food and the idea of a mushy pie with bacon & onions, topped with mashed potato – well, what could be nicer? Real comfort food for a Sunday night in with “Imitation of Life”.
Coo wee, that Douglas Sirk knows how to make a tearjerker. I’m like an old wrung out dishcloth after that.
It’s all taking my mind off the fact that I was stung by a Jasper on the lips today. I was sitting in the beautiful communal gardens of my flat circumventing the “no drinking alone” rule in the Palace of Solitude (in the garden doesn’t count). A bee or a wasp had got into the can and when I took a swig it buzzed around and stung my bottom lip. Now I look like Mae Murray.
For a split second after it happened I wondered if I’d go into anaphylactic shock and die right there with my flat in a terrible state and all sorts of things lying around that I’d be ashamed of when the house clearance people came. I really should tidy up.
