Roland Young's Rissoles

I'm as surprised as Roland is that the rissoles are not an annual tradition as I first thought. The last time I made them was the year before last and they didn't make an appearance in 2008. I am shocked!

I hereby pronounce them an annual tradition. The best, best, best way of making the most of the annual post Christmas food parcel. I chopped up the turkey slices, pigs in blankets, stuffing and bacon and mixed them up with the other ingredients Roland suggested and they made the most yummy little patties ever.

I had to make a last minute plan today. Charley was poised for a trip to the countryside but Rosalind and Jimmy had to wait in for the cable guy. Hence a luncheon party in the Crouch seemed the best option and we had a late lunch (Linner / Dunch) incorporating Roland's Rissoles.

Alas, nobody knew the classic phrase to quote when invited to such a repast, as Ginger would have put it when invited to a last minute lunch: "I'll be round like a rissole!"

I remember him as one of the Spider's victims in the 30s "Dick Tracy" serial.

Aha! For me it is (as the IMDB puts it) "the irrepressible, fanny-pinching Uncle Willy" in Philadelphia Story. Would have been great to have watched that after our rissoles but we went to the pub instead!

Actually, I might be thinking of the wrong actor. I'd have to watch the movie again to be sure...sorry. I don't remember him in Philadelphia Story at all. Guess I'll need to see that again, too.
