Today's theme is Postcards for the Weekend is Foods of the world. So I wanted to share a postcard with a recipe (if you can say so) sent by Laura (the UK):
Chip Butties - The easy way!. No more struggles with complicated recipes!
1. Put two pieces of white bread on a plate, if a plate isn't available use a clean worktop.
2. Spread plenty of real butter on both pieces of bread, no using healthy margarine.
3. Place a big pile of hot chips on your bread.
4 Add ketchup or brown sauce to taste, also lots of salt and pepper.
5. Complete the sandwich by putting the top piece of bread over the chips - magnificent.
Impress your friends it's easy!
And more British humour, form the famous collection of postcards by Martyn Ford and Peter Legon: How to Be British, also sent by Laura:
Get around in English. Lesson sixteen: How to complain.
He: The meat is as tough as old books. How's your fish?
She: It tastes off. And these vegetables are cold.
He: This wine is awful... I asked for dry and they've given us sweet!
She: And look, there's a worm in my side-salad...
Waiter: How is your meal? Is everything all right?
He: Oh, yes, it's all lovely!
She: Excellent, thank you!
And let me share another postcard that fits in the theme. A picture by Harry Gruyaert: Restaurant in Paris, France, 1981. But it was sent from the United Kingdom, and they serve food from Tunisia...
