It’d been there for almost a week. The elephant on the stove. The red cast-iron crockpot sat there, belidded and untouched.
It was a lovely coq au vin for four. I’d deliberately overcatered on the chicken... well, with two women and two blokes at the table I couldn’t really have just done extra for the guys, could I? If I had... well, y’know...! But of course, the women didn’t eat their extra chicken.
There it sat, festering under its lid. It was a game of ‘chicken’! Who would crack first?
I’ll give you two guesses. You only need one!

Once it's out there it's every man (or woman) for themselves! I'm that way when it comes to barbeque. Once I grill it and it's offered to you if it's still sitting there after a suitable period (usually about an hour) and you haven't eaten it...it's fair game!

This chicken had been in the pan for a week. Nobody dared to open the lid because it would smell AWFUL! And someone has to clean the pot. I wonder who?!!
