The Recession Bites

All of this current doom and gloom brings more memories of simpler times. Back in late 60's, early 70's, we found curry - Vesta Beef Curry. No mashed spuds with cabbage and milk. No. Rice for dindins, not for dessert! Sultanas in our meat (if it was meat), not in our sweet! All those little bags to be opened and cooked. And Angel Delight to follow.
Every so often we would go all Italian, not our regular smoked cod and chips, but real Italian with Vesta Risotto. Yummy.
Would it taste as nice now. Who cares - never visit the swimming hole of your youth, it is best in the memory.
