celebrated July 4th this year in my traditional-as-of-two-years-ago
fashion: by making British-style fish and chips.
Ahh, fish & chips. Deep-fried goodness. I first
tasted this when I spent a few summers in England during
my college years, and I fell instantly in love. Now
I can make it for myself! And, although I'm being a
bit of a smartass by eating a British dish on Independence
day, it really isn't out of line with American tradition.
What could be more American than celebrating holidays
with a load of calories?
Ah, America. I kid you because I love you. That's
my official position, anyway.
Anyway, the fish this time around is whiting. I would
have preferred cod, but the cod was not priced, and
I have an aversion to buying things whose prices
aren't marked. I'm rarely happy when the mystery is
solved. On the side I have a few "Hit"
cookies, which by the way are also British, or at least
something I remember from England.
