My Classic Tasty Dish

I have loved this dish all my life my mum made it so ever new but always best at chippy shop wrapped in newspaper after a queue Always loved splashing my chips with vinegar, pepper and salt haddock or cod my favourite fish cover with tartar sauce without fault Loved to have after the match soccer my fab game, go every week get my fish supper before go home real tangy taste so to speak Remember holidays in my twenties Blackpool on the west coast yearly last thing at night fish supper a must diet forgotten weight high I did fear! In Scotland, we called it a fish supper if in England fish and chips was its name over the years price has changed too high but even so, its never lost its fishy fame (I am writing a poem about the classic British dish... fish and chips!)

How true Gordon, the classic dish, That took me back when they used newspaper to wrap them. Don't forget to throw in a couple of pickled onions. Hope you're well Tom

Thanks John, glad you enjoyed it and especially when wrapped in newspaper, I was never a pickled onion fan! Hope all well with you, we are well but waiting to see if we'll go into full lockdown like England. Blessings always,Gordon

G’day Gordon … you brought back great memories in your poem. I my youth, after the pictures on Saturday nights, we always brought fish and chips, and they tasted nothing better than when wrapped in newspaper - a mouth watering verse Gordon - Lindsay
