Many years ago, I’m guessing in the early seventies, Cheryl and I were visiting my folks and something unexpected happened!
Who would have guessed that by teaching her daughter-in-law to cook sausage rolls could backﬁre and blacken a Christmas dinner. My Mother made great sausage rolls, and she passed her recipe down to Cheryl many years ago. It was Christmas and Cheryl, the daughter-in-law, was elected to cook the sausage rolls. With a little help from my Mum, the deed was done.
The table was laid and the plate of Cheryl’s sausage rolls was placed in front of my Dad. I grabbed one as did Dad. He opened his mouth and took a mouth watering bite. With half of his sausage roll still in his hand, he turned and complimented his wife of over forty years by say, “Dear! These are the best sausage rolls you’ve ever made.”
He would never live that down!
So far, I have not done a faux pas of that magnitude but it might happen one day!
