As a side note to all of this pb/banana/bacon conversation:

Did you all grow up with one of these on your kitchen stove top for collecting bacon grease? I did.

Don't think collecting bacon grease ever really took off in the UK.

When I was growing up it was the juices from the roast joint, known as dripping. The best was beef dripping, though we never sniffed our nose at pork or chicken.

The roasting pan would be left to cool down, and as the juices cooled and set, you would get a bottom layer of meaty jelly, with a layer of beef fat across the top of it. For as long as it lasted, it would mean bread and dripping, dripping on toast. Yummy! You'd use the fat in place of butter, and across the top spread the jelly. That would always be supper on a Sunday night.

I did. My dad used to collect it in a can, then dump it in a grease vat at a nearby restaurant.

No never. Beef dripping sounds revolting.

Nowadays, in a post-Oxo, Bisto world, it's called stock, and the basis of a good gravy.

When I was growing up, we collected it in a Hill Bros. coffee can. Do they even have that brand anymore? Edit: They do, and I remember the can having the old "taster" logo.

We also had one of those gigantic iron skillets that could kill or at least seriously maim someone.

*Bump*

As that time of year is approaching and I've only got a week of school left, I'm in the kitchen making little Christmas-y treats. I'm currently eating some cinnamon and orange palmiers I made yesterday, with a nice hot mug of frothy chai latte :)

Yeah, for the past two weeks we've all taken turns bringing Xmasy treats into the office - I made some yummy chocolate-pretzel treats! Today we have banana bread (yay!). Gonna get a slice now to accompany the day's first mug of coffee (five or six more to follow.)

And of course the obligatory daily apple in an hour or so (fuji today).

For X-Mas my wife made peppermint-coated Oreos on a stick and I brought them in today. They're the hit in the office this morning. brian-epstein

That's a fine name. So I suppose I should name mine "The beginning of Yesterday with mushrooms"?
... Magic Mushrooms?

I dare you to go to a cafe and ask for 'the beginning of Yesterday on toast' and see what they say. If they serve you the right thing then they deserve a very good tip.

Depends on who's serving you... they might see it as "the beginning of what *I* ate yesterday on toast," and you might not want to know the answer... a-hard-days-night-john-7

Just discovered a fantastic food combination that really shouldn't work but really does. Crunchy peanut butter on malt loaf. Sounds weird but it's so good. Yum!
