    Re: 'Magica'l New Years Eves when you were growing up...

    Nan used to have a new year party for us grandchildren. It would all be finished and over by 10.00pm.But its something I can clearly remember decades later. It was probably the only time in the year the whole family would gather in one place. Now you don't see any of the family unless it's on Facebook.

    My parent's were never big on news years party's and never seemed to stay up to welcome the new year in. These days we may have a few quiet sandwiches and trifle and a small drink but that's it.

        Quiet sandwiches are sandwiches that don't have a crunchy filling - (anyone used to put crisps between two slices of bread?)
        Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

          Crisp butties are the best.

          Most of our sandwiches were more squelch then crunch. Salmon ,patty or paste. I always went safe and had cheese. I still go safe now and leave the unknown squelch to the more adventurous guests.Not really ideal for kids but if you were hungry you ate it anyway.

            Na .. crisp butties are the work of the devil and I'm not even religious[emoji4]


            Crisps are designed to be enjoyed as a crispy experience ..

            Butties are designed to be soft ..

            This is all in my world of course

              Nearly read that as chip butties!

              Talking about sandwiches, I just love Coronation Chicken flavour - I got some for the Harry Meghan wedding earlier this year and I love them so much - pity that Tesco sell so few of them.
