00009 Community Tri-County News Kimball, MN i: :-&apos;.-'.:.,'i$,,. "  " "'" ," .... . ,  -- " ..................... Tidbits March entered like a lamb. Yeah! March 7, daylight-saving time started, which was earlier than past years. Due to the English blood in my veins, I enjoyed reading informa- tion about England on the internet. Since I like to eat (who doesn't?) and cook, usually the first thing I Google when looking for informa- tion on a country, is food related. It is thought that around 1792, the sandwich was introduced. The Earl of Sandwich was such a gam- bler, that he didn't want to leave the gambling tables in order to eat a proper meal, so he devised this method, presumably, so he could gamble with one hand and eat with the other. By 1850, sand- wiches were widely eaten. When it comes to eating, Eng- land is most famous for its pub (short for public house) fare. On :he menu you would find fish and ;hips, ploughman's lunch (didn't earn what that consisted of), ;hepherd's pie, steak and kidney pudding, bangers and mash, and, of course, British beer, which is usually served warm. Breakfast: The great or full English breakfast is known to be cooked or fried breakfast. It would consist of any combination of fried bacon, eggs, sausages, grilled tomatoes, bread, black pudding, baked beans, grilled kidneys and kedgeree.Akhough not eaten every day by most people, it is still loved. I had to check out what kedgeree is. It is a British traditional break- fast dish containing a mixture of fish, rice, hard-boiled eggs, cream, and seasonings. Sounds interest- ing. I wonder if curry is one of the seasonings, as it was mentioned as a popular spice. Coffee: "Coffee should be black as heck, strong as death, and as sweet as love." Hmm. I also read that coffee should contain a 'hint of cardamom.' High or afternoon tea: Often served with small cakes, biscuits, scones, and tiny sandwiches. Tea is usually served with milk, not cream. Maybe I should try that, but in my mind, I have never been able to imagine milk in tea. Other popular foods are Eng- lish muffins, quiche and meat pies. Pork pies are almost always eaten cold (Sounds yucky). Yorkshire pudding: Pudding is pudding as we know it, right? Not so, according to the informa- tion learned as a result of Goo- gling Yorkshire pudding. The rec- ipe, which can not be printed here because of copyright laws, sounds more like what we know as cream puffs, the main ingredients were bacon drippings, milk and egg. It was to be served immediately and was good with beef gravy or it could be served with chicken. The chef, who shared this recipe, said as kids, because of food shortage, they were given the choice of hav- ing their slice of "Yorkie" on their dinner plate or served as their "sweet" with jam on it. In spite of the cholesterol this must contain, you can guess who is going to try it. Table manners: The English are very conscious of table manners. Most foods are eaten with cut- lery. Foods not eaten with cutlery include sandwiches, crisps (potato chips), corn on the cob and fruit. When eating soup, you tip the bowl away from you and scoop the soup up with your spoon, with no slurping allowed. When you're fin- ished eating, the knife and fork are placed together with the prongs of the fork facing upwards on your Kimball sehods Menu Apr. 13-17 Breakfast Monday: Spring break.

Friday: Ms. Mass's class favor- ite homemade pizza or Italian tur- key sandwich, corn, sliced wheat bread, peach slices, milk. plate. I have failed in that I have licked my knife and I have pushed food onto my fork or spoon. One never blows his nose on a napkin (serviette), since these are for dab- bing your lips. The British eat con- tinental style, with the fork in the left hand and the knife in the right hand (or vice versa, if one is left- handed). Other tidbits: England is one of the countries that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The others are Scotland and Wales. Tourist recommendations, besides the numerous sea resorts and beaches, are the Tower Bridge in London, Westminster Palace, Greenwich and Big Ben. The name Big Ben actually does not refer to the clock, but to the 13-ton bell this for the joke, please join the seniors for dinner at St. Anne's. They get a joke each day.

Thankfully, the temper- ature was mild enough that the six to seven inches of snow won't be around long. It was the wettest, heaviest snow I have had to shovel this winter. Hopefully, it will be the last. At this point, normally, I would insert a joke clipped from another publication. Because of copyright laws, it turns out I can't do that. I'm sorry.
