Re heat

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Read an article from some over educated paper hat today where some of the things which you should not re heat include coffee and POTATO.  How in heavens name I managed to survive almost eighty years eating bubble and squeak ????????????  ...almost once a week.  Back in the war years and 50s we didn't wast food. Sundays lunch would be made into a super dooper soup or bubble and squeak, in particular if the potato and chopped greens whatever was left over had that lovely crisp brown layer underneath when you turned it in the frying pan.  Today nothing goes to waste in our house if we can make it into something else.

Then you have obviously never grown them..... bolting is when they throw up a flower head which will then turn into a seed head.

We also have bubble squeak most Mondays using up what wasn't dished up for Sunday lunch. Wife also makes enough stew to last two evening meals, second one seems just as good if not slightly better.

I've heard of people leaving some for day 3 but wifey won't go with that.

If things keep going the way they are, a lot of people will be eating very different things than they have before.

Also including Spinach and Beetroot, reheating those can give you cancer. Cooking oil? for some stupid reason. Eggs, Potatoes can only be reheated in a pan, microwaving them can cause the growth of Botulism which will have you on the morticians slab in no time. And rice because its chocablock with bacteria.

On that then I should have died about fifty maybe a hundred...no...maybe 500 times or many more times,  in the last 80yrs.:lol:

Now, there is re heat...just warm it up and reheat as with bubble and squeak where it stays in the frying pan with the beef dripping till nice and crispy brown on both sides...oh no, there we go again that could give me a heart attack.

My old mum god bless her used to have beef dripping on toast, for tea on Sunday from the roast. Always made me want to throw up, Apparently its very nice. I'll take peoples word for it and stick to marmalade.

Food of the gods, with a little of the beef jelly. 

We used to be able to buy a slice of bread and dripping from the school kitchen for 1d. (Less than 0.5p, for the millennials amongst you)
