Haven't had KFC since 1975, jimmi. Usta live on the stuff til I was on a road trip, bit into a piece of extra crispy, and hot oil spewed all over me and the wheel. I don't even think they offered mashed potatoes, probably a good thing, cos I would have been covered in that too.
I have a buddy who made fish and chips for a restaurant, everyday for 25 years. He got pretty good at it. We can still talk him into breaking out the fryer when we get together for a night of howling at the moon. Done right, it's the best... but mushy peas, yeeeech. What's up with that? I love peas, but why mushy... kinda cute name for describing something that looks like what the cat threw up.
Pie, mushy peas and gravy lathered in Hendersons relish, you know it makes sense. You dont know what your missing man. Even mushy peas and a bit of mint sauce on its own. They are part of our staple diet up North lol. Gotta be made right though no tinned mushy peas, they`re dried rock hard when you get them you soak them overnight, cook em up and then away you go to mushy pea heaven .
