About Me

My photo
My name is Frances Rose Agnes Napper aka SmileyRose. I am a friendly and fun loving individual. I like meeting new/old friends. Although I love being with friends, I also enjoy my own space from time to time. I have a number of hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs, going to the theatre, travel (visiting new and exciting places), reading, films and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I particularly enjoy it when we all get together. I was a full-time mother for both of my daughters and I did not go back to work until they both reached primary school age. The UK has a lot to offer because there are so many picturesque places to visit. I particularly enjoy the British countryside. My home town was in Stamford, Lincolnshire although I am currently living in Peterborough. My Father was a serving member of the RAF. I'd consider myself well travelled from a very early age (6 months old). Divorced - for 10yrs. Currently single. I am interested in meeting nice folk only. :) Star sign - Leo the Lion. Birthday -July 29th. That's me in a nutshell. :)

Scampi In A Basket

They were discussing this topic on the radio this morning.  Apparently pubs will be stopping folk from eating Scampi in a basket as it is not considered as popular at it once was.  How could they stop?  I used to love going to the Riverside night club as a teenager and quite often we would have Scampi in a basket.  This was back in the 80's.  I even named my pet Chihuahua Scampi. Bless his heart. He went to doggy heaven a number of years ago. :(

Scampi in a basket was the best thing since sliced bread.:)

You mean they ate your dog in a basket?

Of course not! My dog was just named Scampi.

As quoted from wikipedia:

Scampi is a culinary name for some species of prawn, notably the 'true' scampi Nephrops norvegicus, and is also used as a name for a style of preparation of these lobsters and other seafood. In India, 'freshwater scampi' refers to the shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergii.
