Pub Lunch.

I am having a Pub Lunch at my house for a few retired MN friends in Mid April.
I have many happy memories of Pub Lunches, mostly at anchor in the Gulf but due to overindulgence I cannot remember the menus.
Can any of my Catering Colleagues give me a sample menu that is within my and the Memsabih's ability to cook and is typical of mid 1970's fare.

Cheers,

ES.

Smallie eats: crisps, cheese straws, (if going posh; cocktail sausages with cheese, pineapple and cheese etc).

Main: Chile Con-Carne/Chicken curry/Scampi & Chips.

Allow for 1 case of Tennent’s/Tiger per head (they’re retired now) and 1 case of Double Diamond for any who may be predisposed to constipation.

Have a great day ES.

Since when were solids a factor for consideration in pub lunches? It must have differed from when men were men and the advent of what I have heard as being PC took control and the reigns.

Enjoy your well deserved hangover, even if you are hungry !

Keep Well,

Cacique.

Nothing to do with pub lunches but I remember the pig farmer that lived near me who collected all the unsold ,stale Vogels mixed grain wholemeal bread from the bakery every week for his pigs .
The problem was that the bigger greedier pigs used to hog the feeding trough preventing the small and timid getting their fair share..
He solved the problem by heavily coating the first load with flour so the pushy ones quickly developed a very dry mouth and had stop gorging to go for a drink from a water trough several yards away.
This allowed him to replenish the trough with un floured loaves for the meek and the mild.
I imagine this strategy could work for many a pub lunch.

Bob

A good sprinkling of salt over the edibles should do the trick.

A pub lunch ? ….. wot's all this food stuff ? …… beer, then more beer, then a top off with beer.

OK OK, I'll give you one concession … a nice bowl of boiled tripe in the centre of the table, maybe a spoon or two for the posh types.

Bob, have you stole this menu from Bank Line?

It lacks balance, a squeeze of lemon juice would invigorate the tripe.

You're right. A nice bit of squeeze is very invigorating.

Nothing like a dollop of mashed potato, boiled cabbage and onions all squeezed together in the bhandary's armpit. Yum.

Anything squeezed in the Bhandari's armpit is a Kofta. Make your armpits your charmpits.

Remember we used to get Chicken curry for pub lunch every Sunday, then when we where in Liverpool he gave us Egg curry instead.

The purser was not amused when we draw a coffin on the dartboard scoreboard with RIP Chicken Curry underneath

In New Zealand we would have a 6 pack of Big Ben pies washed down with a gallon of Red Bull.

Bob mentions Tripe , reputedly the most loved or loathed food on the planet.
No in betweens , so much so that an Auckland Pub in Hobson street called the Shakespeare Tavern invited Tripe lovers to form a club where members could enjoy a Tripe and beer evening on a monthly basis.
It got a good response, husbands joined , wives joined , even a few couples joined and it gained in popularity . I can well imagine that romançe might have well blossomed as what could be a better catalyst than a Tripe loving partner .
I don't know if the club survives

Bob .

Tripe was never a favourite of mine, but devilled kidneys, or liver, bacon and onions followed by copious amounts of Guinness! There’s a menu for a pub lunch!

Pub lunch

Don,t insult the Bank Line, Sunday lunch, Chicken Curry, paratas and beer.
The only tripe I came across was on the Weirbank where the Chief steward was using a large frozen block of it to stand on to reach the upper shelves in The deep freeze.
The best place for Sunday lunch was Raffles, Singapore, curry buffet and draught Tiger.
Have fun.
