  1. Depends where you grew up. We used to eat shrimp by the heap. Can’t say that we cooked them though.

  2. Stodge and Sweet. Vegetables to be cooked until very soft. Less meat cooked slower, more starchy potatoes, dumplings. Rice was for puddings, spaghetti for beatniks. More (overcooked) fish cod, haddock and herring. Kippers and othe smoked fish. Shellfish. Custard. Prunes. Sunday roast joints would be used mince on Monday and Tuesday in other recipes eg cottage pie or rissole. Sausage and bacon. Rabbit common until myxy. Offal. Chicken was a rarity.
