Sausage rolls

By L&M has developed a sudden addiction to sausage rolls and every so often I make a batch.
He took two for his lunch one day last week.
One of his colleagues asked him about them, saying they weren't very neat and were different sizes.
My L&M explained that they were home made, his colleague seemed bemused as to why anyone would bother to make something that could be bought in a shop and that would look neater.

I was wanting some Trex to make pastry but couldn't find any in the small Co-op I was in. I buttonholed an assistant who led me to where the lard was.
No. I didn't want lard.
What did I want for, I was asked.
When I said it was for pastry her face cleared. She swiftly showed me where the Justroll was.
No, I explained, I wanted to make my own pastry.
This really floored her.
"Can you actually MAKE pastry?" she breathed, eyes wide with disbelief.

Come on Hester, surely you can make pallid, greasy,uniform 'off the factory conveyor belt' real sausage rolls.

What a jackass! What is it to him that your L&M's food is not uniform. God knows what that guy eats probably everything extruded from a machine in a factory! Gag

Shame on you-did you not use a ruler to measure them and weigh your ingredients out for each one!! My family love it when I make any kind of home made pastry item and there's usually a race for the well fired ones from the edge of the tray. Well done you for doing this when your life is so busy.

Some people are very strange, aren't they?!

Love your tale Joy. Reminds me of one of my friends who used to insist on using packet mix for Yorkshire puddings. I tried to explain that she only needed flour and salt/pepper instead of the packet mix (she had to add the egg and liquid anyway), but she INSISTED it was easier to just buy a packet mix. She buys frozen ready made ones now.

I wonder what the colleague had in his lunch box?! x

Hard up Hester said...

Rambler, the colleague only eats food from M&S or Waitrose, and receives regular visits from the bailiffs

Lights, camera, action
