Deep Lies, Not Deep South
Originally uploaded by rethought
1. Ciabatta. Yeah, we'll skip past that incongruity.
2. Monterrey. There are two 'r's. And it's in California. Clearly =/=
Deep South.
3. There are no biscuits. Fried chicken goes with biscuits. I can
maybe get there with dumplings, but only just. People of the UK. It's
like tea and milk. If you're having tea, there will be milk on offer,
even if you personally don't take milk.

The whole blithering thing is ridiculous.

I've never understood how they can put baked beans on pizza and call it pizza. *g*

I've never seen biscuits (American style) over there. You can get English muffins now, I know, and in London there seems to be a Subway and Starbucks on every corner. They're making progress (though I'm not sure that's a good thing!). In 1976 all you could get in Ireland were Birdseye frozen vegetables that were American. And no American chain restaurants had appeared.

That sandwich sounds good but more Californian and not at all Southern!

Yeah, I've finally gotten to the point where I can somewhat enjoy baked beans for breakfast, but pizza? Blech.

Not sure if it's a good thing either, but I have to say I think it's sad when my childhood cuisine gets so misrepresented. (Even if I am a veggie and never ate chicken! :) )

Monterey, California has one R. Still a fail--it's not in the Deep South.

Oh, yes. A few people have pointed that one out. A big plate of fail for me.

I could maybe try to say that I've been thinking of the Spanish spelling of Monterrey all these years, but that would be disingenous. :)

There's so much wrong there I can't even begin...

My mum used to make biscuits fresh when we were in the UK, but they were a rare "I'm homesick" treat from her.

I seriously need to find a reliable biscuit recipe!
18th-Feb-2010 01:25 pm (UTC)
I definitely make them as homesick food. :)

Biscuits are good. Very good. The lack of them is a little sad.
Do you need ingredients?

And actually, there's only one r for the Monterey in CA (and the cheese). The place in Mexico has two rs. I mainly know this because I've been misspelling the one in Califorinia for the last several weeks. Oops.
16th-Feb-2010 10:11 pm (UTC) - Bah!
This offends me on both my Cali and my South/Southwestern roots!

Monterey has one 'r' ... still, nothing 'Deep South' about it. It's a Cali/Mexicali cheese.

Ciabatta. How wrong is that ... let me count the ways ... even a bap would've been more authentic than ciabatta (thought such would've worked better in, say, a 'pulled pork' sandwich) Sheesh!!

I also agree that there needs to be shortening/buttermilk biscuits involved, here.

And whats this crap about 'Honey BBQ Relish'? RELISH??!??!?

***has massive conniption***

Wow, really?

I think it's a sign I've been in the UK too long that I didn't even register the wrongness of 'BBQ relish' til now!
18th-Feb-2010 01:26 pm (UTC) - Re: Bah!
And I didn't notice it until you said it!
18th-Feb-2010 01:25 pm (UTC) - Re: Bah!
I'll post one up!

It actually sounds kinda good, but it's not something my dad would eat... I'm pretty sure he has no idea what "ciabatta" is.

Now, This is a chicken biscuit. If you want to be fancy you can put a slice of tomato, some lettuce, and maybe even some bacon ;)

But really..

Now I want chicken and dumplings.

*thumbs up*
18th-Feb-2010 01:26 pm (UTC)
I make myself and others hungry. Not sure if that's a good thing or not.
17th-Feb-2010 12:51 am (UTC)
So very wrong. Makes me want to make some fresh biscuits though.
18th-Feb-2010 01:26 pm (UTC)
I know!

Maybe they were a popular treat in devon ?
