In the late 1930's at Christmas time my dad use to take our bird to be cooked at Stones Bakery in Newcastle. We would have a turkey or a duck or fowl. We had to pluck it at home first.
I put a piece of bread in the toaster now and when it comes out it's little. I had bread and cheese for my tea, it didn't do me any harm and I'm 93, we didn't know what cholesterol was! When i was young we use to have a piece of rolled up pudding and gravy before dinner.
