Fish & Chips revisited
Tue, 10/23/07 1:53 PM
On Nov 11th I expect a group of English guests.
Well two anyhow, and if that ain't a group I'm not from Brook-a-lean.
So I planned on wearing my best bib and tucker and serving fish and chips. I even went so far as to order a copy of an English newspaper to wrap the fish in. I don't fool around !!!
In preparation for this momentous occasion I decided to try out the recipes I had put together well in advance.
Last night the lovely Mary Ann and I had a fantastic dinner of
FISH AND CHIPS.
Absolutely top drawer--don't you know. Never had better at my club, old chap !!!!
But I will not make it for guests.
The kitchen was smokie for an hour after the cooking. How come the alarms didn't go off, you ask ?? Because I disconnected them in advance.
I wasn't absolutely sure of the temperature of the cooking oil--had to play it by ear, but I can't take a chance with hi-class company.
Cooking for 2 is easier than cooking for 4 guests, two of whom happen (or not happen) to be British.
So we will have prime ribs with Yorkshire pudding because those things I am sure of.
Cheers (a great TV show)
