What is your favorite kind of fried chicken?

I love chicken drumsticks everything about them is brilliant. The bone that you hold is just perfect for you to tear the chicken and they are so easy to cook. I also like KFC chicken breasts just gorgeous.

Jamie Oliver - Taking On Obese America?

@therealchiffonade There didnt seem to be any adjustment whatsoever people would of rather give there kids a packed lunch than let them go without but best laugh of all the councils then cut the budget for the schools which seemed ridiculous.With regards to tomatoes its any fresh or tinned tomatoes he doesnt like it could be the texture because he eats pizza and loves it so he must like the taste and also he hates eggs but everything else he eats. :o)

Jamie Oliver - Taking On Obese America?

@therealchiffonade It was'nt a personal issue through me and the wife it was the food that was now on offer was not what i would call healthy food that a child would eat it was a few years ago now so i cant be specific as we now live in portugal but it was done straight away no introducing the children to the different foods first so the child by nature will just not eat as a rule my child has always eaten healthy but he has an issue with tomatoes and alot of the foods were with tomatoes so it didnt suit him.It was a good idea but done in the wrong way alot of children were eating unhealthy but if they hadnt seen this type of food before they certainly arent going to eat it especially if the parents arent there.sorry for going on but i do like jamies ideas when he does his cooking shows and im a member of his forum.

Jamie Oliver - Taking On Obese America?

i like jamie oliver and his cooking shows are great and original what i didnt like about him was the way he changed school dinners in the uk help the children eat healthier but some of his ideas were ridiculous and alot of the children stopped school dinners and went for packed lunches mine being one of them the kids just didnt want to eat what he suggested educated or not my son has a healthy diet but alot of people thought he went too far with his menu makeover hopefully he has learnt his lesson. :-)

Steak Preferences

Like most people have said medium rare is the way for me since we moved to portugal we have a favourite restaurant called sergios which does a fillet steak on the stone the steak comes out uncooked and you can cook it yourself to however you like which i think is brilliant. Love the fillet and sirloin.

Do you have a favourite mug?
