    Just take the labels off the tins for some interesting concoctions!

    The river Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years.

    I often did a similar thing when the children were small and shopping became intermittent due to one being off colour or the weather being vile. Our lad looked at it sceptically on day and asked what it was called. "Galimaufrey" I said - having heard the word and hoping it made sense! He was delighted to have a name for it and tucked in gleefully - even though it was different every time. When I later looked up the word, it means " A hodepodge made up from larder remnants" - so, perfect!

    Our family name for 'back of the fridge stew' is 'Yantlet Relish' apparently due to the habit my Grandfather had of clearing the galley on his boat into a saucepan with no regard for sweet or savoury then topping the concoction with Panyan Pickle!
