Just love bread and butter pudding - haven't tried it yet with gf bread.ReplyDelete
Bread and butter pudding is the work of the devil; made only to provoke nausea.Delete
There are 2 sorts of B and B pudding - really good and really bad, with nothing in between. Really good version is made with condensed milk.Delete
There's a recent (and quite interesting) movie about the woman who painted those big-eyed children doing the rounds at the moment. And I often wonder why that green stuff is included in preserved fruit, it has no taste at all.ReplyDelete
I can't stand those green bits. If Lady M allows one single piece into her Christmas Cake, I refuse to eat it.Delete
What really are those green bits ?Delete
Maybe ground up space aliens.
I always found those paintings rather disturbing. They're too cute, almost provocative.ReplyDelete
I agree with most things on the list but would delete bread and butter pudding (delicious) and the colour orange (so sunny) and include cruelty of any kind to people or animals.
I think 'cruelty' comes under No 17.Delete
Agree 99.9% with your list Cro, but don't mind the colour orange - depending on what shade it is....ReplyDelete
Have never understood why bread and butter pudding is so popular.
Bread and butter pudding should be banned.Delete
Absolutely - shall we start a website dedicated to the banning of bread and butter pudding !Delete
You make me glad angelica isn't big here.ReplyDelete
I think my list would include punishing those who are the victim.
Angelica should be banned.Delete
I hate hello kitty she has no mouth !ReplyDelete
I had to look her up on Google. Now you've reminded me of No 21; those dreadful floral baby's headbands. Ghastly!Delete
Yes, agree with that one too !Delete
I think i shall love bread and butter pudding, never had it here,ReplyDelete
Be grateful Yael; it's awful.Delete
We had it for school dinners, put me off for life Yael, it is vile.Delete
I was forced to eat it at Prep' school.... I vomited it.Delete
Ours looked like vomit.Delete
Yael - see above and try not to taste the bad version first.Delete
There is no end to the new things i learn in blogland.Delete
I would include two others, greed and, because of the way I feel at the moment, the dominance of Google.ReplyDelete
We all hate Google; regardless of how useful it is.Delete
Just looked up bread and butter pudding, looks rather like American bread pudding. Awful stuff, even with whisky sauce.ReplyDelete
The only thing that would improve it is dynamite.Delete
I agree with most of these Cro, although I do feel you can't beat a really good bread and butter pudding with lots of plump raisins in it and possible some high quality marmalade.ReplyDelete
No, no, no. All the individual components are fine, but once assembled they become evil.Delete
I would rather eat my own liver with a rusty spoon than eat bread and butter pudding Cro !!ReplyDelete
I'm not really a pudding person but my mum made a good bread pudding which is entirely different to bread and butter pudding !
It's funny how, within your 20 things, there are some that are very deep and meaningful but it's bread and butter pudding that has dominated the comments !! XXXX
It brings out the worst in people. The world is divided into two camps; pro and contre.Delete
The blogger Vintage Vixen collects those style of paintings and calls them her wall of misery! http://vintagevixon.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/heaven-knows-im-miserable-now.htmlReplyDelete
Good god..... Nightmare! Strangeways is too good for her.Delete
I'm not sure she takes them seriously :-)Delete
En masse they are quite fun, but I think it would drive you mad eventually.Delete
It seems that bread and butter pudding evokes the strongest feelings in your readers. That is a good thing!ReplyDelete
Or a bad thing....!Delete
Something I really, really like are your posts.ReplyDelete
I knew you had good taste, Frances!Delete
Cro, is it perhaps the texture of the pudding that you dislike? With my kids, I've noticed things they won't eat usually involve texture, but that being said, I'll never eat vile liver no matter the texture.ReplyDelete
I just associate it with being sick. Even thinking about it makes me queasy.Delete
Orange is a good thing. It prevents you choosing a grapefruit by mistake.ReplyDelete
LOL, best comment!Delete
That's one way of looking at it!Delete
I'm not sure if I ever had bread and butter pudding..sounds like I'm not missing much.ReplyDelete
Think yourself lucky, Jennifer.Delete
My original comment disappeared. I wonder if it will resurface?ReplyDelete
I like your slightly quirky list.
I find the kitschy wide-eyed paintings of children disturbing, as I do snakes (the real thing, not the paintings). Bread 'n' butter pudding is not something I grew up with but I trust your taste as I also find the green bits in dried fruit erky.
I rather like orange. Though I understand your aversion, considering your neighbours' taste!
I love b and b pud, and make a lovely one so I'm told. With you on the angelica though, I also hate mixed peel and put double the amount of cherries in my Christmas puds instead of mixed peel , urgh !!!ReplyDelete
