"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    Yummy! Especially with lots of butter.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,493

    Girl! I like that.

    If you like eating a sponge that has just been toasted, you'll love them @SillyLittleBleeder‌.
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭
    so you've tried them, haven't you?
    I'm quite sure they're not as bad as you're describing them. But maybe that's because they remind me of You-Know-What

    Please do not mix up pancakes and that stuff.

    I have fond memories of crumpets for Sunday tea. They were always running with melted butter. Without, they'd be disgusting!
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge‌ really? so it's true then, they taste bad?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,713 mod
    They don't taste bad, but the texture, if they don' have anything on them, can be a bit dry and off-putting. Like @Xeb says, like eating a sponge!

    I see.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 29,713 mod
    Crumpets for me is synonymous with Sunday tea, in front of a warm fire.
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,745 mod
    If there is an open fire, I would want a thick slice of toast on a toasting fork. Happy memories.

    We only had a little electric fire, but in a nice fireplace. Not quite the same though.
