Grist to the Mill

12 October, 2004


Jean Britton describes a visit from her mother, for whom she tried a new recipe. It seemed to go down well with everyone, so she asked her Mum what she thought. “It was very nice dear, but next time you make it I’ll have a boiled egg.”

That was 20 years ago, but now not only my family but many of my friends still use the phrase.
