    I think this topic was best when buried in the 57 thread.

    Here's a recipe for your family dinner:

    And another - in this one it states "Fanny recommends a nice hot custard to go on your Spotted Dick"

    It does sound like an interesting British alternative to eating pie after a bike ride.

    Let's here it for Popovers. The British kind!

    Unfortunately, we had a receptionist where I used to work that was a Popover or Muffin Woman. You know, the 55+ type than are more that a bit over weight and insist on wearing the 20 something hip hugger jeans with a midriff showing top. She was popping over the top. That ought to take away your appetite!

    I should try that ... put on tight clothes and look in the mirror to drive my embarrassment level up to unbearable.

    This is certainly OT. However, I must confess. She earned the nickname of IQ - 1 from me. A very sweet and nice lady, but oh my goodness. In the south we would say: "God Bless Her Little Heart." (reserved for those that are truly beyond help)

    One day she popped herself some popcorn and pulled the bag out of the micro wave and ran as fast as she could out the front door almost knocking me over. I asked what she was running for. She exclaimed that she couldn't open the popcorn inside because the steam would cause the fire sprinklers to go off. Knowing from past experiences that a logical explanation would only illicit a lengthy and nonsensical discussion. I commended her for her thoughtfulness and clear thinking in such a dangerous and risky indeavor.
    God Bless Her Little Heart! She thanked me for recognizing her her effort and sincere concern for the company's well being.

    One last thing on Muffin Woman!

    I nicknamed her son IQ-2. Why you ask? Well, he was twice as smart and it was a 100% improvement.

    I can't believe it - we have a Viagra thread, and now a Spotted Dick thread.

    Is that a side effect of Viagra?

    What's next?

    Made me think of Patrick O'Brian's early 1800s seafaring novels, where they eat a lot of bizarre-sounding British food like "spotted dick" and, even worse, "boiled baby".

    Well, this is the spotted dick thread, so it seemed apropos. I thought about including him in the divorce procedings for alienation of affection.

    There's a bar in Toronto called The Spotted Dick. I think that is very funny.

    I worked with a man from India. Many Indians abbreviate their lovely long (and hard to pronounce) names for the convenience of those of us born in the US. Unfortunately his initials were B.M. Even after four years, I couldn't say his name without giggling on the inside. I never had the heart to tell him what those initials also stood for to people raised not to talk too clearly about body functions.

    Although in the 50+ forum, my sense of humor is sometimes that of a 12 year old.

    There's a club on the River Walk in San Antonio called Club Bwana Dik.

    They occasionally run commercials locally in wintertime for some nice hot Dickens Cider.

    But I think they should take nasty stuff like that and send it to Uranus.

    Get it, get it, Uranus, huh huh uh uh uh huh. huh uhuhu huh. huh uhh uh.

    Mocking one of our great British Puddings. I was bought up on this stuff and I can tell you it is as nice as it sounds. Thick stodgy suet pudding Boiled for hours to take the taste away and served up at School dinners and by Grannies to show what we had to eat just after the war. Basic ingredients are Suet (Certain form of Cow Fat)- Flour and Dried fruit. Couldn't be easier to make- till the Modern chefs get hold of it and tart up the recipe.

    For those of you brave enough to try it- A "Modern" Tastier recipe is below- But cut out all the fancy ingredients and you you have a basic pudding that will definitely stop the kids from overeating.

    Edit----- And if it comes out of a tin- It is rubbish.
