That would be the too scruffy to be gay John Gray in Wales, who lives in a village with a name I cannot pronounce. Is anything in Wales pronounceable? Tradie Brother has a Welch name and that is pronounceable at least and Bone Doctor's brother has the same same name. Anyway, John kept banging on about Scotch Eggs. He confessed he may well be slim and trim if he held off on the Scotch Eggs. R used to cook Scotch Eggs for dinner at times, some 25 plus years ago. We had a deep fryer then and they were plunged into the hot fat and they were delicious. Essentially they are a boiled egg, surrounded by I think a mixture of sausage meat and mince meat and bread crumbs and then deep fried.
Well, with John continually mentioning Scotch Eggs, I had developed a hunger for them. I wanted to revisit the past. Sweetie, you work in and around Port Melbourne. There is a Thomas Dux store there. Can you see if they have pre made Scotch Eggs? (nb Thomas Dux may sound like a posh independent store, but it is owned by Woolworths).
The store did have them, at $6 each ouch (labour intensive I guess), and..........well, they really should been best left as a great memory. They were rather ordinary and nothing like I remember them. Maybe it was because they were pre cooked and did not get into the hot fat at home. They really need to be home made, with a pinch of love added.
