Chili Con Carne.

Thursday 10th February 2011

I was telling MS that when I was a boy chili con carne was the height of fashion along with spaghetti Bolognese and vol au vents. MM was an early adopter to cooking something other than the ‘meat & two veg’ that she had been brought up on.

“Was it like gold?” He asked.
“Kind of…” I said with a confused look on my face. “…what did you think of it?
“It’s ok but pizza is better…No, no, what I really want to say is it’s hot!, with an exclamation mark at the end.”

We had strawberries for dessert, from Huelva.

    I have never heard of “vol au vents” – so I looked it up. Ah… then I “got” it.

    I am also slightly confused by your son’s “Was it like gold?” question. It’s funny how children’s minds work some days… 🙂
