Spam and Suky ...


A small selection of my wartime eating and growing books ... they started a Challenge before my Challenging Myself blog was even born. 


Suky agrees with John  💖

  2. I do love looking at resting dogs when they don't know we're looking at them, so much wisdom in the pose

    1. Suky will sit and stare until she falls asleep, and I often catch Mavis just staring at me when I'm sat quietly doing something. I would love to know what goes on in a dogs mind, they look so peaceful most of the time.

  4. Absolutely ! we will be hopefully wasting a lot of time soon in our static van on a site near home and in a way I have you to thank for this opportunity. We have had a couple of lovely touring vans years ago and then a camper van but when my son had brain damage 11 years ago leaving him with epilepsy we couldn't have holidays so camper van went and we haven't holidayed since. We are now in our 60s, retired and following brain surgery my son's seizures are improving but still not out of the woods so we still can't go far from home, so when drooling over your van it seemed a good option, yesterday deposit was put on a beautiful van ( thank you equity release ) on a lovely site at Looe just 20 minutes drive from us. We can spend time alone at the van so one of us is at home close to son , husband can fish at the lake and when its my turn I will just chill with a capital C and sometimes we will be there together with the dogs, so all in all our quality of life will improve so thank you for the inspiration, Chrissie x

    1. That just sounds so wonderful. Both of you able in turn to take time out for yourselves but be within minutes of home if you are needed. And to be able to visit the van together sometimes will be lovely.

      I hope you have many happy years of Van Life

  6. One of my chums is mad on wartime cookery and funnily enough I have just spoken to her to get her recipe for spam scones, which I intend to make this weekend. If you make them very daintily they are perfect with a nice cold glass of wine or gin and tonic. You can use them as canape bases, totally delicious. I must try and remember to post about them after they're made and before they are eaten up.

    1. As a non-meat eater I wouldn't eat Spam if my life depended on it, but Alan loves it, especially fried as Spam Fritters the old wartime way. We first did this when we lived for a month on wartime rations and loved every minute of it :-)

  7. I was very interested to read the titles of your books. I will be trying to get copies of some of them.
    We have a brilliant second hand book store made out of old shippng containers and an old warehouse near us. So will be delving in there as soon as we are allowed.

    1. Oooh ... happy delving, that sounds brilliant :-)

      This is just a teeny selection of my wartime rationing books, it's a subject I'm really into being a bit of a 'basic foody'.
