blah blah blah... old ... blah blah blah... new....

Old ... rubbish.... out with the ....




and for 2008:



These new year resolutions are tied on the fences of a primary school nearby. A few words are visible, including "stop wor(r)ying", friends, and a few references to stopping bullying.




All of which sound like pretty good aims.



Foodwise, we began the New Year as, no doubt, we will continue, with an inspired menu choice by M., excellently well prepared, beautifully presented and speedily disposed of.




I kept listening out for the arrival of Desperate Dan but sadly he was a no-show.

We did eat a few sprouts too as a gesture towards healthy eating.
...before the treacle tart....




No matter how good or bad the old year was for you, I wish you better by far for the new year.

And to those of you who have tied and held ribbons of resolution on my behalf in the past year, when its so often been beyond me - Thankyou beyond words.

hello, and thank you for all you kind words in 2007. Everyone MUST have a good 2008. send along your e-mail and perhaps we can meet up!

Lynne said...

I don't know much about English food so please pardon me if I'm wrong, but is that Bangers and Mash that I am looking at??

Wow...artistic!

Best Wishes for the New Year Letty! I hope we get to meet in 2008 on your trip across the pond!

Squirrel said...

I totally love these pics. The banger tower is a culinary marvel.

Malc said...

Was there onion gravy?

And the school resolutions. . . sweet.

Akelamalu said...

Ooooooo bangers and mash - luverley!!

My wish for you is that 2008 holds everything you're wishing for m'dear. x

Reya Mellicker said...

The feast looks so wicked. Yum!!

Can you make resolutions for other people? I didn't know that. I'm not resolved in any way for 2008. Que sera sera.

Love to you!

Queenie said...

Heres wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2008. Bangers and mash, yummy.

Queenie said...

Me again,just had to come back and say how hilarious your post on round robins was. I have a friend/acquaintance, who sends me one in her Xmas card every year. It really pees me off, never managers to visit, but I can be sure of a reminder of her promotion, children's academic achievements, how they obviously have more money than most as they are booking their 4th winter holiday skiing in the alps.
Wish I dare send her a copy of yours!!!

Trac said...

Yeah the bangers'n'mash looks fab!
I may well have some for dinner tonight now!
No mash for Ren though. He is 'allergic' to them, whatever I call them...

mashed pots?
crushed pots?
clouds?

Yeah, those ribbons are sweet! :O)

Trac said...

Crikey!
I've just looked up and Sid is doing his homework!!!!
I am in shock.
I just had to tell someone.
:O)

Cinn-fully Delicious said...

I thought treacle tarts were something made up in Harry Potter books ...

Happy New Year! Good luck on your resolutions!

Gledwood said...

out with the ... yeah I definitely agree

btw that dinner looks positively RUDE!!

:->

I always thought Desperate Dan existed on Cow Pie, you know, the one with the horns sticking out of the pastry, not Bangers and Mash! It looks delightful anyway, such artistic arrangement. Add a jug full of cholesterol gravy and you have a real heart-stopper!
I like the Resolutions tied to the school fence, what a great idea. I didn't tell anyone about my new year resolutions cos I think I have probably broken them already, but nobody can tell!!
I'm so smart!

Ex-Shammickite said...

And I LUV treacle tart.

lettuce said...

Tut-Tut I will, that would be GREAT.

Lynne, indeed it is. And to you - I'm sure we will meet.

ta squirrel, and it was very tasty.

yes malc, there was onion gravy. slurp.

thanks lamalu. And to you.

Reya, its just the sense that other people have held the hope for me at times when i couldn't....

ha, queenie, yes we still get a couple such letters too. Go on, send it!

haha trac, always a pleasure. LG never seems to get homework these days, I think I'd be equally shocked! btw, the Hare and Billet, Blackheath, do a good bangers and mash.....?

oooh hello Cinn-full. Indeed no, treacle tart long pre-exists Harry Potter and Hogwarts. And very yummy it is too. With lashings of cream. Or ice cream. Or both. HNY to you and nice to see you here.

well really Gled. In Charlton? the dirty dirty bastards

Shammie you are right about the cow pie for Desperate Dan, though i'm sure he had bangers and mash on occasion. The Bash St. Kids certainly did, but i wouldn't have wanted them gatecrashing.

Dumdad said...

Bangers and mash: Aaaargh, you know how to make a person homesick!

I can almost taste them from here...

Desperate Dumdad

Dumdad said...

P.S.

Happy New Year!

Ex-Shammickite said...

Treacle tart with lashings of cream????
oh now I'm feeling REALLY homesick....

Lee's River/Zlatovyek said...

How creative of him! I'd never seen them done into a Christmas Tree before. The Tate might be interested in an installation (or two -same general idea but with pig in the poke and hm...cabbage, perhaps?)

Very best in 2008.

Shelly Lowenkopf said...

Two Lettuce archetypes within days of one another, the archetypal desk and the Jungian role-model of bangers and mash.

The new year is off to a promising start in a world where there are increasingly fewer reliable archetypes.

Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah) said...

That is Serious Bangers and Mash! Wow!

Casdok said...

I love the blue ribbon idea!

lettuce said...

Dumdad - sausages in france are good, but just not the same, are they?

shammie, can you not get fresh cream where you are? (I remember a big argument - no, discussion (haha) - with a french friend who wouldn't be persuaded that creme fraiche is NOT fresh cream!

Lee - maybe it could presented as a performance piece? that way we could eat it too...

Shelly I'd never thought of myself as archetypal. or is it archetypical? in any case, i'm glad to oblige.

Twas indeed, Vanilla.

Casdok it was very appealing. And hello!

muddy red shoes said...

oh wow...love bangers n mash...you are right, just not the same...merguez et mousseline...yuck.
happy new year and may it be a good one xx

call me betty said...

Oh wow, indeed... guess what we're having for dinner tonight?

And treacle tart with cream? Nononon.
Custard. :0)
