Sunday is always renowned for its Sunday dinner. All over the country people pop pieces of meat into their ovens and the family is slowly woken to the smell of sizzling joints of meat downstairs. A few hours later the family gathers around the table and enjoys a nice wholesome family meal. However, this is not so at Jammy Toast when Granny is in charge of the cooking!

Erik’s Column #14

Hello everyone, my name is Erik, I am a teddy bear and this is my column. I was reading the paper yesterday when I read that in America more than forty percent of food is thrown out because it is passed its “use by”, “sell by” or “enjoy by” labels. I really think that is disgusting when we have half of the world starving to death and the west is throwing nearly half its food out. And you can bet if America are throwing all that food out then we will not be far behind them. I decided to have a search around the internet and see if food really is dangerous to eat after its label says so and the answer is… NO!

Hello everyone, my name is Erik, I am a teddy bear who spends nearly every night sitting next to Davidd here at Jammy Toast. I mention this because today I am here to speak out on his behalf. He seems to be getting some bad press lately about his eating habits. Just because he likes to joke with people about food does not mean he is eating all that food. Yesterday, he was joking about Burger King doing home deliveries when he was suddenly attacked by Miss Chimpton who accused him of needing his jaw wiring.

With Christmas now almost here, it is sad to hear that many people who live in our home town of Birkenhead are having to rely on food hand-outs over the festive period. Luckily, a new scheme is starting a fight-back hopefully with the aim of wiping out hunger from our town. The “Feeding Birkenhead” scheme is the result of a national parliamentary inquiry into hunger and Birkenhead MP Frank Field is starting the scheme by bringing together local churches, charities and schools as part of the campaign.

Here at Jammy Toast we are never surprised by anything to do with bears. They are one of the most recognisable and iconic families of animals. The eight living species include the Spectacled Bear, Sun Bear and Sloth Bears alongside the more familiar Polar Bear and Giant Panda. Young bears are born in protective dens as they are very small, blind and deaf. But they are not helpless for long, developing and gaining weight rapidly. And therein lies their secret. Their ability to put on weight so rapidly.

Much to the delight of Liverpudlians everywhere, Merseyside’s most popular scran is to be sold nationwide by supermarket chain Tesco. For decades the famous lamb stew has kept Liverpudlians on the go and there is nothing more welcoming on Merseyside than the distinct aroma of a pan of scouse on the go. The store is to sell famous dish in a heat and eat pouch starting from today. Here at Jammy Toast, we are delighted at the move but we think the store could go further and start selling even other of our favourite local delicacies to help put a lining on the nation’s stomachs.

Eddie Gets His Oats

Our old friend Eddie has been a little off colour lately. As most of our long-term readers will know, Eddie lives with his wife Edwina and a few bear friends at Miss Chimpton’s house. He was our first ever bear acquisition and as such is getting to be a more mature bear these days. With this in mind, Miss Chimpton took him for a well-bear check-up just to be on the safe side. A quick MOT now with a professional bear medic would be far more favourable than having larger problems in the future.

We don’t usually get involved with politics on the blog as both the bears and I know that one Politian is as bad as the next. They all are in politics for what they can get out of it and very few are there for the better of the country. Usually everything they say is aimed at not upsetting any voters which usually means they will not take sides with anyone for fear of upsetting the other side. How the country gets by like this is beyond me. However, as soon as we thought things couldn’t get any worse, along come the latest crop of conservatives.

Fast Food

Just in case you didn’t already know it, it is official – Britain is obsessed with fast food. In fact, things have got that bad that, according to a survey undertaken this week, one in five of us think fish and chips is a healthy meal. We British have always been busy people; we have things to do, places to be and people to see. Not like in France where they have long lunches with lots of wine flowing or even Spain with their siesta. No, we have always needed something hot, tasty and about as nutritionally good for us as the packaging it comes in. In Britain we have not had a good night out unless we have witnessed an act of violence down the pub and staggered home carrying something covered in chilli sauce and with chip fat running down our faces.
