You young uns don't know what real food tasted like.
Even back in the day Margaret I always wondered with Chicken in a Basket about the high percentage of broken leg bones. I don't think they were treated too well back in those days.

Nah..googled Arby's, at least it looks like meat...no matter how you fried these reconstituted perfect frozen squares, they shrank to half their size, bubbled and twisted constantly so that you had one hand snipping with scissors and the other forcing down into the pan with the spatula....it never remotely looked like a steak
Maybe "Steak Canadian" denotes country of origin in the same way "English Fish and Chips" does ... that is: "not at all." Those boxes so labelled that one pulls out of the freezer at any Canadian supermarket are certainly not "English", and they only remotely resemble fish and chips. Oh, and in some cases it's "Fish 'n Chips"; I guess that looks more "English."

Yeah, Derek was a mate of my dad's back in the late 70's and he spelt his version that way as Ann was his wifes name.

True indeed ... but if one ate some by mistake and then felt an uncontrollable urge to toss one's cookies, then one might as well do it with panache, and with all the accents in the right place.

Re: Steak Canadian

Crap? I'll have you know they're very tasty indeed slapped on a barm with fried onions and mustard!

By the way, you might not have heard this before, but they were invented by Derek Ingham at his dad's butchers shop in Willows Lane.
