    Back in the seventies, I'd be sporting 3 button waistband side-pockets, a pair of slats and munching on cheese on toast from Dairy Lea triangles with their "fun for fillings" tin foil covering with the little red cotton thread for peeling.

    I call it what it is, which is not allowed on this forum. :D

    Yes, the new Jersey, not the real Jersey. Brown sauce is fine, but not on everything. Admit it, you've put it on pasta/spaghetti. :eek::)

    What's wrong with everybody?

    It's called toasted cheese as in, toasted cheese with or without tomato.

    NHL opening day so I'm exposed to TV commercials again. Just saw this one for the first time and thought of this thread...

    I'd never come across that before, and a quick google seems to say it was largely a West Midlands thing, which is where I am not from! Now I want some.....

    Sir, How very dare you! I have not. I am not a barbarian. I am very sparing in the use of the brown stuff.

    Are there not gluten free breads obtainable where you are? We're getting a lot of coeliac-friendly foods in the UK now. About 15 years ago we tried a gluten-free diet for my autistic son, and getting stuff was a nightmare. Now bigger supermarkets have half an aisle of the stuff!

    I haven't really looked. I did try a gluten free pizza from Dominos, and the gluten free crust was not very good, kind of chewy like rubber. Maybe next time I shop I'll look in the bread aisle.

    I grew up calling it "melted cheese". My mother came from so high in the mountains they had to pipe in sunshine. she would refer to cheese as "them cheese". It was a constant source of snickers between 4 siblings. I watched her throw a large piece of cheddar into a hot skillet, and torture it until a dark color. I wanted no part of it. Years later living alone I wondered what drove her to have burned cheese as a secret treat. I tried it, and haven't looked back. I've been burning cheese for about 45 years now. (I had to add this edit) I was youngest and when in my early teens my mother made "inspirational posters" for me. My favorite was: "TAKE PRID IN EVERTHANG YOU DO".
