my brother and I (primary school age) were warned that the meal would begin with Yorkshire Pudding and gravy by themselves, and not to make any remarks about it, as at home we usually had the YP with the roast beef.

The Yorkshire plot is to fill you up first so you don't want much beef. We always had the pudding with the main and followed it with YP and syrup.

Slim, my pan is a Wagner Ware B 1323



I must have bought it at a yard sale, once upon a time. It is nickle coated cast iron. Heavy, non-rusting. The company stopped nickle coating along about 1930.

Great life on that pan, but really what use is eleven of anything?

Restaurants nearly all used to plate stuff up in odd numbers because it's supposed to look more attractive. Dunno if they still do.

Nick, I found something on Google that suggests it is important to have good spacing between the cups for good popping. And since there were only two of us having Christmas dinner even eleven would have been too many. Also, sort of in line with sean's comment about odd numbers for attractive plating - when I was in Japan I learned that they sell tableware in sets of five. Here in the USA it seems to be sets of four. What can I say. It's different abroad.

The comments on this thread have really been a pleasure to read, so much so that I made an entry for my web site. So you've read some of it before but I thought it might be of interest. Christmas Meals

With all good wishes for peace, health and happiness in the new year, from Jam Lady

If there are two of you, five each and one for the dog/cat/budgie.
If there are three of you ……. You can work out the combinations!

Eleven mince pies sounds a bit like heaven!

No single number is going to be perfect for every situation

Happy new year, buzzy.

Some numbers are more magical than others. Twelve, divisible by 2, 3, 4, 6. Sixty, even more so.

Prime numbers, divisible only by 1 and themselves.

Fibonacci sequence of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, that occurs in so many patterns of nature - left-hand and right-hand curves in a sunflower seed head, pine cones

Golden rectangle proportions of 1:1.618 - the Parthenon, spiraling shells

Enough. A small glass of lemon Grand Marnier and I shall call it a year.

Eleven is a stupid number. And you all know it.

No, Nick. Eleven is a prime number.
