“Ew Mum – this bread is a bit dry.”
“Is it? It must be a bit old. I’ll get some more tomorrow. But you know what this means?”
“I don’t know – what?”
“It’s Schnitzel Night tonight!”
Old bread means bread crumbs. And for us, this meant schnitzel. Or crumbed sausages. Or rissoles. Or fishcakes. Or anything that would use up the old bread.
Waste not, want not.
