And being the northern girls I am, cod and chips  for me.

cod and chips-2

With a side order of mushy peas (which I failed to photograph, sometimes eating just has to take priority over blogging) but I did rise to the occasion by having tartare sauce rather than vinegar

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. haddock and chips is one of my fav dishes
    i am officially recommending the pub at the side of ladybower dam
    you wont get bigger fish and chips anywhere.

    good pictures , poor bernhard

  2. I have to say, shrimp (prawns), crab, scallops and tinned tuna is about as “seafood” as I get. It’s a matter of personal taste that has nothing to do with the fact that I live over 600 miles inland!

    We have a thing here in America that is typically served with our version of “fish and chips.” It’s called a “hush puppy.”
    Alternatively, you can mold the dough into the bowl of a tablespoon to shape it, then drop the molded dough into hot grease and fry it — but then it’s called “spoon bread.” It used to be a “Southern” thing, but the fast food chains have spread their version of it all over the country now.

    Interesting salad served with the glass of prawns.

  3. Oh dear. I am very, very fond of fish, and scallops, and prawns, and . . . oh dear, the cunning peas. There is nothing anywhere near so good in my house to eat just now.

    Except a perfectly ripe peach. I’m glad I remembered that. I feel better now.

  4. Oh, so you went upmarket down South, with Lemon and Tartare Sauce.

    But at least you stuck with the mushy peas.

    Roll on Saturday, our day for F&C, mushy peas, scranchings and a chip butty to boot. With a great big pot of tea. Yes the one day of the week the teapot gets used.

    No plates, just the paper they come in – yippee.

  5. Cod, chips and mushy peas for me please! xx

  6. For all you Uphilldale followers from overseas we have a lovely fish dish here in the UK called Jellied Eels. Very common at one time in London. Found in the famous Pie and Mash shops. I love jellied eels sreved in eel liquer

  7. laidbackfellrunner

    still served in two places I know of, one in Deptford High Street t’other in the Blue.

    I loathe them – takes a Londoner to like them I think. But I do love smoked eel.

  8. Looks like just as I expect a typical ‘English’ meal to look!!
