Ask a question.... / Recipe for 'Tater Ash'
« on: February 14, 2018, 03:57 AM »
Howdy to all,
Yesterday (here in OZ) was pancake tuesday... and we all continue to enjoy those - hey?

Therefore today being ash wednesday.... when I was a lad in Ashton (1950-60's) my Mam used to make Tater Ash - for our evening meal and I'm sure many here may still enjoy?

Can anyone help me with the genuine local recipe for Tater Ash - so that we (here in OZ) can continue with this wonderful food.

Have a nice day....

Many 'happy returns of the day" - to you.

Keep on - keeping on,

-Larry  :)

But, Kiwis are always way-behind - with most things eh?


Just checking the Women's World Rugby Cup Final and the Bledisloe Cup scores, nope, don't think so  ;)

Nope... those two just ain't - most things now are they!

Keep on dreaming

A consequence of all these alleged pervs being unmasked is that anything they appeared in over the years is going to be out-of-bounds as far as repeats are concerned. We've already seen that on Top Of The Pops. The impact on shows like Corrie and anything a certain Australian artist/singer appeared on will be enormous.
In NZ we're about 2 or 3 years behind the episodes of Corrie that are being aired in the UK so I s'pose it begs the question as to whether or not TVNZ will at some time in the future feel it necessary to edit out some stories involving certain actors who may or may not be guilty of being very naughty at some stage in their pasts  :-X

As for the aging wobbleboard player, he's always been about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit this side of the Tasman  :)

Hmmm.... We get episodes of Corrie here in Australia within 24 hrs of them being aired in UK.... you just need to know where to get them.  But, Kiwis are always way-behind - with most things eh?

Never heard of "splits" before....what on earth was it for?   What was the point - or end result?  and besides the kitchen knife, what did you use and what was the intent?   ???
Hi Joyce, well any knife would do...... (usually one from the home cutlery drawer) so, its a game for two players - who stood on soft ground (grass) and faced each other with their feet astride at shoulder width. Okay, the object of the game was to make your opponent do the splits by progressivly widening their stance (feet) until they eventually fall over. In order to do that one player threw the knife at the ground which had to stick in the soft grass (blade first) if it stuck in the ground then the opponent had to move their foot to touch the knife then remove it from the ground and give the knife back to the thrower....... for another go. Hence if you could stick the knife in at every throw - the the game is won by the thrower because the opponent would eventually lose balance and fall over. However, if a throwers blade did not stick-in, then the other player became the thrower and so worked on the opponent to widen their stance. I often saw this game whereby both players were at their limit of balance... and because of that neither player could successfully throw the knife to make it stick-in the ground (watchers would retrieve any knife that had bounced away from reach of the players) - then it became a test of strength and duration. So, whomever fell over first - duly lost the contest. Hard to explain the tension, strength and levels of concentration required... but I hope you've got the principals of how it was played. I've seen players who were straddled for hours - some even continued to play after dark (in torchlight) Hahaha - the good old days brought out pride grit and a great determination to last. - eh?

Have a great day.....

Hi Greeny,
Alas, this very same example/form of humanity/inhumanity is observable again and again - globally.

Lets be kind to all.....
