Glad to see it's spicy. I'm wondering, do most people store their, er..., in a cool, dry place?

Always check out the packet...

What about a real chicken soup Brian?, better for your health, mm?

That's quite put me off my breakfast - and I'm sure the Duchess has probably been carted off to hospital.

I don't suppose they suggest adding a knob of butter.

I think I'll stick to hen for making my chicken soup.

Or, as the French say, "One man's fish is another man's poisson."

Or the cannibals: "One man's meat is another man's person."

EUDORA - In English slang 'chicken' has altogether other connotations that, in certain contexts, would most certainly not be good for my health...


SHARON - Butter? Think of the cholesterol!

The Duchess, I believe, prefers coq au vin: she certainly maintained a regular interest in the welfare a strapping young delivery lad from the local wine merchants.


PHIL - Brilliant (especially the cannibals)!

Eudora said...

Oh, I see... I miss out something...

No, EUDORA, it's just the strangeness of the English language!
