I came across this topic on Facebook and responded with the following and then thought in my vanity that my reply was better than a quick response on social media so have upgraded it to my blog.
They didn’t do it while I was at school but this may be because it was an all boys school, however I have managed to perfect some signature dishes since leaving school. One of my favourites is oeuf scramble, another is fromage sur toast and also haricot sur toast, these dishes stood me in good stead during my years as a single man supplemented by numerous trips to my local Indian which was luckily within walking distance of my house.
I never learned how to make lager but as luck would have it the restaurant had copious amounts on tap.
So I say bravo to home economics and the ability to sew on a button.
