LOL Grace. That is actually very funny.
There is a French Chef writing in today's newspaper,
and saying how we, in the UK, are arms raised in horror
at this happening, and yet we eat cute lambs and cows.
Both of which are on an equal footing with the horse.
I got Quorn mince with which to make my Spag Bol this
weekend. It's a start!
QUORN vegetarian products are excellent El,
I use them a lot, and they do a wide range
[as you will know] the QUORN mince is great as we
can add ANY flavours we choose..
the only exception here [I find] would be
their sausages, but I'm sure that varies
from person to person..

Here's another joke..

'So, I guess, that would make Lance Armstrong..
a drug peddler'

lol

What is Quorn mince? Spag Bol, also? I have never heard of those items. Would you be a dear and explain.
Maybe I missed that dish in my travels to the UK.
Thanks.
Here in the USA, there are different producers of horse flesh that they want to market. Sure, the uproar was crazy! Then again, after 3 years in the Far East, I never knew what was in a lot of meals I ingested! All I know, to quote Oliver Twist, "More, sir!"
Good Day Boomer,

That's interesting re the horse flesh they want to
market,
as you may have heard,
HORSE and PIG DNA and were found in what was passing for beef burgers
over here, they are taking a VERY serious view of this..

If one goes to purchase BEEF, that's what one expects..
.. and should honestly get -
not some hidden unspecified ingredients,
would prompt one to ponder 'what else' might be included!
that we dono'about..

PORK, as we know is a serious 'NO NO' in some religions,
so if people unknowingly buy meat with pork derivatives
added ... HOW bad is that!

and far more serious,
if people happened to have allergies to these
'unmentioned' mysterious additions!!!!

the mind boggles!

Anyway,
I see what would be termed as
quality meat here just left behind -
choice sirloin cuts being sold off for a pittance!

why?

because..
suddenly... trust, sadly, has gone!

TKY for that. I don't generally antagonize and I don't bully but I am also not a wallflower. As I said 'hell hath no fury like a Quinn scorned". There are few if any people RW and cyber who I dislike. Who and how many dislike me in either or both worlds remains to be seen.

I remember a few years back there was big controversy with McDonalds frying in like beef oil or something and the Hindus in Europe or maybe Muslims because of it.

There are so many people these days who have issues with food -- for religious reasons, food allergies, gluten/dairy intolerance -- that I find it wholly irresponsible and bad business not to sell exactly what you purport to be selling.

Do I agree with government nutrition mandates? No, but as a diabetic I find them helpful in my food choices and diabetes management. By the same token as I said with all the folks with food issues, it also a good business and marketing strategy to provide the information ...... but accurate information.

Quorn is a soya product which can be used in dishes which
require beef, or lamb, etc. It is a healthy alternative and
of course cruelty free.
I often made Spaghetti Bolognese using it, and am reverting
to type.
I will go mad with the bay leaves and Parmesan to give extra taste.
(Parmesan cheese)!
Interested to know..where were you in the UK? Was you stationed here?.
Mildenhall and Lakenheath RAF, 70's, 80's and 90's. Just passing thru with temporary duty. Made it to Newcastle for coal, Ely for the cathedral, and Cambridge for the university. Maybe we me in a pub in the Wash. I was there too. Hotel Mildenhall. You bring back memories that I have long forgotten. Thank you.

Grace, thank you for chiming in. We all know that different cultures have different tastes in menus. When in Rome so to speak... My first trip to France I had to try the cold potato soup. I will NOT attempt to spell it. A wonderful dish. Spain had gazpacho, yum; the UK with Sheperds Pie, good and I will go with the traditional fish and chips!

Whereever I traveled, I ate what was local. Good food and bad food and intesinal madness! Gotta do what the people do!

Denny, this one is for you. Navy for four years, we could talk at great lengths. Your time served gives me an idea of your age. Do you remember when the river area of San Antonio was unsafe? I was there in 1973 and you did not go down there after dark.
The North American Spring Fling is taking shape. Will you join us in person or Skype?

Southeast Asia, Cambodia, Laos, and the baby lift in 75. KAL 007, the first GULF WAR, and Bosnia. welcome home my brother.
I refueled aircraft inflight, hence the name "Boomer". Nothing to do with subs... you know what I am saying!

hey Quinn! Glad you had fun at your convention. Good to know people still like their job.

Rather excited about the North American Spring Fling.... How do we shorten that without it being a racy acronym!? LOL!

Hoping others nearby can make it to Fort Wayne. Ooooh, I feel like a character in Stephen Kings' "The Stand".

Big fun!

Enjoy your Monday if you are off work. Brighteyes is and I get to do breakfast!

Nope. Just working and a little under the weather. Third time I've been sick in a month. Gotta work in the morning. Hope I make it.

Beside your fun weekend, how have you been?

Be well and dodge the flu or worse. It's bad this year to point out the obvious.

Doing quite well actually. Things are moving in the direction I've been setting goals. Temp job has turned into a permanent gig with a fabulous company. Glad to be working after a long time unemployed. It will help get to where I want to be.

Winding down after the holidays and trying not to get sick. Something hit me around October.

Looking forward to boxes and boxes of Girl Scout cookies!!!!!! Thin mint :-)

<quoted text>Well I know there is less chance of being shot in England. Our criminals are more apt to kill a witness. They say the first person you kill puts you in the chair so the rest are free. I do carry a small knife with me in England and I am not sure it is legal because it has a locking blade. The blade is only 2 inches but I am not sure about the lock being OK. I show my friends my gun license and they can't believe it because it is so foreign to them
Morning Denny and all others. Back now, and slowly ploughing through some 800 posts! Here is the relevant knife law for UK:

The CJA 1988 mainly relates to carrying knives in public places, Section 139 being the most important.

"It is an offence for any person, without lawful authority or good reason, to have with him in a public place, any article which has a blade or is sharply pointed except for a folding pocket-knife which has a cutting edge to its blade not exceeding 3 inches." [CJA 1988 section 139(1)]

A lock knife is regarded as any other for the purposes of the law, so you are legal with 2 inches. I have to say that very few apart from fishermen, hunters and criminals in the UK would consider carrying a knife inb public
