Alot of American beers are like making love in a canoe. (I quite liked Billy Beer, though!)

Billy Carter was one of America's great beer drinkers according to the blurb on the Billy Beer can. I never had the opportunity to try a can, but I was so fascinated by the name that I decided to do some research on the product. That was probably the best 30 minutes I ever wasted.

I bought a 12-pack. I still have the case and the cans, but, the beer is long gone. :)

You're supposed to eat 5 tins of Heinz products every day :?
Sounds a bit monotone. :wink:

Actually, a pupil told me what it meant today - 1 of your 5 portions of vegetables per day; call any vegetable... :wink:

The NZ health department (or what ever they are called this week) periodically run the 5 plus a day tv ad campaigns, signs up in all the shops and whats left of the print media. The problem is the super markets have soft drinks, potatoe chips and ice cream permanently on special while the fruit and veg prices remain quite high by comparison. Those folks in the lower socioeconomic sector can only buy what they can afford, and in most cases it's not the fruit a veg. In NZ we have a 15% goods and services tax (GST) on almost everything, it used to be 10%, crept up to 12.5 (while nobody was looking) and now we're at 15%. The farmers get GST exemptions on a number of the big ticket items like farm vehicles and machinery, fuel etc. There are moves afoot to drop the GST on the healthy stuff, bread, fruit and veg etc, but the humble farmers are the main opposition to this policy whenever it comes to the vote...NZ may allegedly be clean and green, but the green appears to be money not vegetables.... :P

Pan fried breast, braised thigh with peas, broad beans, jersey royals, baby carrots and a white wine broth.

Well now cooking and game fowl is my thing, that is why i was curious about the dish you described, as it would take a minimum of two hours to braise fowl legs as you described, me thinks you might have , how do you say fibbed a bit.

That it does friend. At work I have a big tray of pre-braised thighs that just need warming through. I'm a chef you see, know all the tricks of the trade. I never eat anything complex at home. Right now I'm eating a bagel as a midnight snack.
