More on sandwiches

Is this, or is this not, a work of genius? Made, I believe, by a single parent dad as part of his son's school homework. (Didn't get assignments like that in my day!) Apparently it's also a great way to get kids to eat cucumber. Wonder if it would work on Pot Noodle boy?

I once went out with the daughter of the man who invented pot noodles - never fancied them myself

When I was very young I used to cut my portions of Edam (v small ones natch, life was hard in the fifties) into the shape of a little house with chimney, door and windows (the pre Bill Gates sort). Unfortunately this early sign of artistic genius has failed to develop into anything worth writing home about.

In those days cucumber, like everything else in the memory, was a luxury...

Kerry, I trust you are well. Diet is an interesting thing. I still love my greasy fry ups, chips, steak and kidney pies, but as I get older the veggies are just as nice. Infact when out for dinner often one of the courses I have is usually vegatarian, especially as I feel full quite quickly these days. From my time as a sportsman I think I also have an "addiction" to starch and I am a bread and potato junkie.

So what I am saying is that people's diet does evolve and change and no need to be in despair.

I find the best way to encourage my kids to eat cucumber is not to feed them anything for two days. When they start eating the furniture, cucumber is a tasty treat.

Not getting fed is probably the least of their problems.

I'm teaching them to smoke at the moment. Keeps them thin apparently. Who wants fat kids?

Just been on the phone to Pot Noodle Boy. He tells me that at the age of 14 he was in a band called "Big Dave and the Pot Noodle Experience", along with Caroline Flint's stepson. (He's from Doncaster).
