A particularly strenuous evening shopping for the school disco left me feeling that the floor had been wiped with my fatigued body. I decided not to cook but instead resort to the Chinese. Salt and pepper squid, sweet and sour chicken and oodles of chips for me and Lou. And jolly good it was too. Not a vegetable aside the spuds in sight but it has to be done sometimes. Of course, with eyes bigger than bellies there was stacks of food left over. The chicken and squid sufficed for another rushed meal of unbalanced nutritional content the next day before I helped out at cubs but there was still a shedload of cold chips left over. Don't they look appetising? Believe me the visual appearance was nothing compared to their taste. Something must happen to the starch when they cool down. They were dee-sgusting!
The result was lusher than I could have believed. Crispy, crispy chips with a light fluffy middle and super moist garlic infused chicken. Yum! Just the excuse I need to 'go large' on my next takeaway visit.
