Smokin' !

Picture the scene in the pub on Sunday lunchtime. Keith is chatting to Nikki, Charlie is staring vacantly out of the window, Steve is worried about Paul because he has to go to work on a Sunday, John G is dozing in his wheelchair after consuming vast amounts of "Pedigree" beer and Don is propping up the bar talking to Stu.


Di, our lovely landlady, asked Don if he would 'smoke' a couple of sides of salmon for a bit of a "do" she is arranging next week.


Don, you may recall, is our local genius at smoke-curing wild pigeon breasts, and is considered to be an a bit of an expert when it comes to cooking breasts.


"Yes, of course I will" he said. To which Di replied "I've got them in the fridge out the back at the moment"


"Don't let me forget them" Don said.


"No", said Di, "I'll get them out for you when you are ready to go".


Now my hearing is not so good these days, but I hope she meant the salmon steaks!

"...is considered to be an expert when it comes to cooking breasts."

I'm sure there's a double entendre in there somewhere...

No Debbie, it's not a spelling error, but you can interpret it as you will....

Can you actually get papers big enough to roll a salmon in or do you have to crumble it in to little bits ;-}

Love the explanatory picture. No side-salad with nuts then..?

Sorry Keith - so you're the one with the dirty mind then? Shame on you for leading a poor innocent lad astray. . . .

Keith said...

Sandy - He doesn't need leading.
