|'Poor man's' sandwich|
I was chatting to my dad the other day about my Watercress challenge and told him how I was incorporating watercress into my meals each day for two weeks.
Well maybe my enjoyment for eating the water growing green leaf superfood is in fact hereditary because it turns out my Grandad used to love the stuff himself and would often enjoy a simple Watercress sandwich.
In fact it turns out, Watercress was very popular in my Grandad's generation, and sandwiches were a popular way of consuming the good green.
During Victorian times it was often eaten in sandwiches at breakfast time, though in poorer homes it was eaten on its own, which earned it the nickname “poor man’s bread”.
