Fish 'n' chips by Miss-M on 21 January 2008 6:08am
I had fish (flounder) and chips for dinner last night. I thought a fact of such importance was deserving of its own thread :)

Did you feed the leftovers to your cat ?
That would be deserving of it's own site.

I had chips sans le peche last nuit.

Oh and Missy doesn't have un chat. She has un lorikeet de rainbow and un pooch.

I have to have pommes frites sans huile on GP's orders - surprisingly tasty & all the supermarkets here now sell those useful little baking trays with holes in them so's you can cook chips without oil.

Food is important, Miss-M and deserves mention in virtually every thread. I rave about all these other foods, but fish and chips are one of the essential food groups, right?

When I eat fried food I must have some veggies with them. I'm guessing the calcium in them helps burn off the extra acids needed to digest the frying fat. No doctor required to make this determination for me...just years and years of pub grub and heartburn!

Can you buy fish'n'chips without the fishy part? Is it cheaper to buy only half of the meal?

Fish N' Chips, always good!:-)

elina, in a 'chippy' (the colloquial name for a fish and chip shop) all of their fare is buyable as individual items. Our local chippy does deep fried : chips, battered fish, black pudding, haggis, chicken, pizza, sausage. They also do mushy peas, pickled onions, bread rolls and pickled eggs - these are not deep fried. Buying the chips without the fish is about 30% of the price. Some chippys elsewhere in Scotland do deep fried Mars bar!

That sure does sound good! In the Czech Republic they have smazeny syr ("fried cheese" - breaded and deep fried!) and then they put tartar sauce on it. And they like to put mayonnaise on their chips. When I lived there in 1992, it was like no one had ever heard of cholesterol. And for coffee (kava) you couldn't even get milk in cafes - they didn't understand why - only whole cream (kava smlekem). And there was a little walk up window in a pretty, old building just off Staromestske Namesti where you could get steaming hot bramboraky, ("potato pancakes") they were so incredibly melt-in-your mouth delicious. It was bitter, bitter cold there in the winter - so the extra fat was good! (I was in my early 20's and my legs would ache at night sometimes from being so deeply cold.) There was also no decaffinated coffee available there at that time, but it was only three years after the iron curtain had lifted...

p.s. Johnny - cats, like dogs, can be some of the best, coolest little beings ever! Often showing up human beings because cats are more Zen. Unless human beings abuse their power over them and mess them up in the head. Much like people as babies, all kittens are born cool, and ready to have a good life.

Do you prefered to be called John rather than Johnny? :)
