One love - for the Mother's Pride

This is how we like to remember dearest Dusty.

So I was rather surprised to come across this advert the other day.

By coincidence, I mentioned Mother's Pride in a recent post.
Some people feed it to the mullards (sic).

That sort of bread isn't real bread. It's made by the Chorleywood process - that's not real Chorley either but some place in the deep south.

There's a a campaign to bring back real bread .

I'll support that

Sorry Dusty - I won't eat your bread, but I still love your singing and your eye liner.

Have a good bank hol.

Brilliant advert! Best thing since, er, striped toothpaste.

It was like watching Elvis advertising Macdonalds or Eric Clapton doing Shake 'n Vac. I believe Uretha Franklin did a series of ads but I think she was only taking the piss.

I always think that Urethra Franklin made a vas deferens to the standard of popular music.

The T shirt worn by the Bring bacl real bread mannequin is made in my Home town in West Wales.

I have a feeling the picture itself was taken there too.

So - Howies is the new 'must have' designer label?

Good thing you escaped, we wouldn't want you to end up looking like doh boy.

It's all roughage innit?

I'll send the doh boy round to check it out.

Mascara didn't come cheap in monochrome.

We make all our own bread (apart from Naans) in a breadmaker, the most used kitchen gadget we ever bought. Current favourite is a four way equal split of White, Wholemeal, Granary and Rye flours with a sprinkle of caraway seeds using the French bake programme (whatever that is). Lovely bread with that wonderful baking smell too.

However, I do recall in my youth that, once when on holiday there was no real baker and we ended up (much to my Mother's Shame) buying some Mother's Pride. I loved it.

But I was very,very young at the time!

Betty: Bravo! I could only add that comeback she did with the Pitta Shop Boys.

Kaz: I had to look up vas deferes in Wicky Pee ! (No, honestly I did!)

Blogger KAZ said...

I thought a good chap like yourself would make Naan's bread for her.

I shall think of it as 'Mother's Shame' from now on.

The Chorleywood process didn't start until the early 60s - so I was raised on the real stuff.
Mostly Hovis.

Well you certainly have it covered there!

Next week 'Shirley Bassey goes arc welding'

Wasn't that one called 'What have I done to deserve this .... punishment?'

What a great clip. Very Corononation Street The Musical.

Kaz - I'm thinking maybe we should move to Didsbury instead of Manchester City Centre. Can you help? What's it like?

Blogger KAZ said...

And the sequel 'Madonnas Good Botox Guide'.

Hope you had good (non Chorleywood)toast.

I suppose Murph's too young for 'O levels'.

At GCSE level they probably call it U tube.


I read your reservations about the city centre and felt concerned - even though I didn't recognise a lot of the things you described from my own experience.

The city centre is very buoyant and confident at the moment - it's a big place, so perhaps you were looking in the wrong area.

Didsbury is very popular and still has quite a 'villagey' feel to it. It's a short taxi ride from the city centre.

I'm not sure about the availabilty of decent sized apartments - but that's easy to check out.

Best to have a drive round and take in Heaton Moor and Chorlton as well.

Much luck.

Thanks Kaz - that's good advice -which I'll take :)

I'm not sure if they are the new designer label, I think it's aimed at surfer boys and their ilk. They had a battle with levis a few years back on account of the position of a tab on the arse pocket.

It's just struck me that I'd never before associated the awful Chorleywood bread method with the Chorleywood Research place that used to do for me when I worked in t'food industry...... but obviously they're one and the same. Doh! I feel ashamed.

Blogger KAZ said...

Keep us *posted*.

It's a bit sad that a huge firm like Levi's has to keep 'tabs' on a small one like Howie's.

You did rise above it all and escape.
And at least it wasn't McDonalds ..

We stick to brown bread these days -- not so keen on Hovis but quite like Warburtons.

I like this Dusty moment better than her rendering of the theme to The Bionic Man. What was all that about?

2:56 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

I suspect Warburtons is a bit Chorleywoodish in spite of the 'Good old Northern' adverts.

Didn't Chesney star in one of those ads?

That had completely passed me by - even though I liked 'The 6 million Dollar Man'.
However, U tube took me back there. It shows we have selective memories where our heroes are concerned.

What next - We find out Jimi Hendrix did 'On the Buses'?

You can use the Chroelywood method to make good bread or crap bread depending on the ingredients and quality you are aiming for. You can't blame it for the polystyrene bread, it just makes all bread easier to make (and stops the air bubbles at the top where anoyingly the crust used to fall off...).

DYK- There is more sugar (and crap) in the main-stream brown and wholemeal bread (Hovis Vitbe Allisons etc) than in the white polystyrene stuff.

And finally, according to the Dully Torygraph, Chorleywood is the "happiest" place in Britain. Must be something to do with the bread.

Blogger KAZ said...

Er you don't by any freak of chance live in Chorleywood do you?

Surely it can't be as 'happy' as the real Chorley.
