I feel guilty. Ashamed. And a little bit dirty… I’ve let myself down, and I’ve let you down. That’s right – the other night I tucked into a plate of beans on toast WITHOUT adding Salad Cream!!
I can hear you all screaming: “Why?? But why would you do this?! I thought we were in this together!!”. Yes, yes – I hear you, and you all have very valid points; but I want to take this opportunity to explain myself, and maybe we’ll learn something about ourselves along the way… You ready? C’mon then, lets go.
It was Wednesday night – I’ve just gotten back from work, hungry and knackered enough that I can’t be arsed to cook something “proper” for dinner. The answer = beans on toast. Classic! However, once the aforementioned beans were ready and placed on the aforementioned toast it wasn’t the Salad Cream I reached for to decorate my plate in a Jackson Pollock kind of way, but…. gulp… HP BBQ Sauce: Smokey Barbeque variety.
So where the heck was Salad Cream?! Wellll… turns out that although I love baked beans, and I love Salad Cream, and it was only the other day I was raving about the joys of eating a beans AND Salad Cream combo (one of the great pleasures in the world! We will discuss the beauty of eating beans straight out of the can avec a good squirt of SC later…), when it comes to beans on toast I’m just no about it.
Jacket potato with beans and Salad Cream – yes.
Sausage, beans and Salad Cream – yummo!
Beans and pretty much anything else with Salad Cream – sign me up!
Beans on toast with Salad Cream – no thanks.
What the hell does this mean?! Am I some kind of sicko!
But I guess this does raise the important question – when is the right time for beans and SC?
Is it sometimes ok to say “no”?
Is this beans/SC business an exact science?
Is this just me!?
I, for one, will be delving into this burning issue and exploring my eating habits over the coming weeks to discover if there is ever another time when beans and Salad Cream are not the prefered option. If you have any thoughts on this I’d appreciate your opinions – I know you must be dying to tell me…
And if we can solve this maybe next week we can tackle world peace?
