Tattie ot Physalis


Tattie ot Physalis (Physalis peruviana (Andenbeere))

FAO Irish, Macrimmon & Mr Digs – if you remember I thought this was a tattie and so was disappointed when I pulled it up and it revealed no tatties (Mac, I waited for the flowers as instructed) however on closer inspection discovered it was a Chinese Lantern (Physalis) – success at last

MAC............Humph

Hi Angie, I haven't heard anything from you for ages, how have you been doing?

8 Jul, 2009

 

yis are all sacked !! I thought I was the amateur around here - Sandra I had a Physalis (Chinese lantern) last autumn and it "vanished" as plants do and reappeared a few weeks ago and if I remember correctly you may have been one of the culprits that lead me to believe it was a tattie !!! ( I'm away to check) .................... yip Sandra one of the instigators "shame on you" Just noticed Mr Digs sneaking in there when I was away to check on Sandras hand in this abomination - Mr Digs I will deal with you later !!! Meantime we are waiting for Eileen to make her excuses !!!

Sandra I thought I'd won the lotto when I seen it (I must get out more LOL) and MAC if my family starve or develop malnutrition it is your fault PS I was home at the weekend and brought home 6 months supply of scotch pies and square sossies so we may be ok for a while !!

ah don't Mac - I forgot the mortons rolls and it aint the same without them

8 Jul, 2009

 

I get rolls from a wee bakery who makes his own early on saturday mornings, rolls are still warm when i get em home , although you got to use them that day , I dont think they have preservatives in em so on the second day you can put nails into walls with them . .. .. but first morning brilliant.

Mac would you stop !!!!!! I am so jealous in fairness Irish bread is much better in general however we do a mean roll in Scotland - and as you say there is no point in bringing it back as it aint the same on day 2 – however we do still have a tattie problem in Ireland so don’t be getting off the subject Mister !!

lantern scones . . .err I mean tattie scones ,do you get them in Ireland?

8 Jul, 2009

 

Ah Sandra LMAO here - when I talk to my old friends on friends reunited we say the same thing – now its kids, plants and carpet or wooden floor apposed to duran duran, cute guy at 3 o’clock and puff ball skits or drain pipe jeans - oh hum – I’m happy with my petunias and I’ll leave the kaiser chiefs & I pods to the young ones

Mac we get the tattie scones however they are flown in from Scotland – need to tell you story –in Ireland we get sausage meat in a roll or joint (basically a bit lump of sausage meat) and my darling husband bought some and made squares of them (bless|) I had to tell him they were very nice however not quite the same otherwise I’d be eating them from here to eternity

8 Jul, 2009
