Fish and Chips in the Sun. That must be Horrible.

To really enjoy Fish and Chips you need some good old English weather.

Its 1700 hrs here. Dark, windy and raining, thats when you need Fish and Chips.

Enjoy them Limeydal, are they as good as English Fish and Chips or better ???

Fish and chips were really good(although they don't batter the fish!)
And no ,its not a silver platter but a plastic tray.
Still missed the mushy peas and vinegar ,but was a nice break, on a great day out on the water.
Promised RichL not to brag about the sunny weather or he would be obliged to poke me in the eye with the blunt stick he brought over.
Anyway had to send RichL home as he said there wasn't a decent wave to jump over here and the sunburn was making his face crinckly!
So sure he will fill you in on the terrible time he had
cheers Dal

No batter?
No vinegar?
No mushy peas?

Tut, tut........that just ain't civilized!

Glad to see he took the blunt stick though!

They are not quite that civilized yet!!
Just making progress on stopping calling them "French Fries"(Aplogies to any french members)
Some chains calling them "Natural Fries" now . Getting better but still not a real "chippie"
Chips over here are Crisps (or Tortilla chips that you dip in salsa) So i think RichL completely confused them when he asked for Codn'chips!!
cheers dal

It's no wonder they just get angry and invade any country that happens to be giving a sideways glance.......no one understands them!! I think some lessons in how to speak the Queens english and gastronomique etiquette maybe in order.

I don't suppose they know what a puddin', chips, scraps and gravy is either!?

Disgraceful behaviour!

That does not look anything like Fish and Chips. It looks more like flattened bread.
