Thread: "It tastes funny..."

    Default "It tastes funny..."

    Made the Maternal Unit a Mother's Day Sunday lunch of: roast chicken,
    assorted vegetables and potatoes, veg puree. Dessert (which we had at
    tea time) was a standard pound cake, baked with a filling of thin orange
    slices.

    Gave her a slice (looks nice with the line of orange through the middle)
    garnished with cutup strawberries and whipped cream. Had my back turned
    while I was preparing my slice with homemade vanilla ice cream. She said
    it 'tasted funny'. I whipped around thinking something had gone wrong
    even though it looked and smelt really good. 'What do you mean?!'

    She smiled and said 'It tastes like I want more!'

    Happy Mother's Day to one and all, maternal or not.

    Sounds like you're lucky to have each other. Enjoy it.
    Your story reminds me of Rob's grandfather, a very distinguished man
    with a small goatee and moustache to complement the twinkle in his eyes
    when I met him. I would ask how he liked something I'd prepared and
    he'd look at me and say, "I don't know. I think I need some more before
    I can decide." Alex rest his soul.

    It has its ups and downs like any relationship of course. Still working
    on it

    LOL! There is an adjective in UK English for it: moreish. However it
    isn't a word my German/Dutch-speaking mother would have known. The cake
    is already half eaten, so couldn't have been that bad...

    After my dad passed away and my mother moved to her own apartment for a
    couple of years, she spent the remaining 5-6 years living with us. I
    wouldn't take anything for that.

    Good Housekeeping Illustrated? It all meant but one thing to him:
