Chicken Enhancement

A wonderful garage sale purchase on the weekend (the box was still sealed) which we turned into a very, very classy dinner.

I, of course, tried to research the history of chicken frills. Why do we use them? Do they have special significance? Apart from the frightening fact that they are still on sale at all good catering suppliers, I have nothing to add. For some reason, I associate them with Samantha from "Bewitched" - I think that's about the time period when home cooks would use chicken frills. Anyway, there you go, a bit of culture you probably didn't expect. The roast pumpkin was excellent, and there's some left over for a Roast Pumpkin Pizza. Mmmm.

i thought they were used so you wouldn't get your fingers all messy from the chicken or the serviette becoming stuck on the chicken to save your fingers from beding messy.

Well, there you go. The box says "Beautify". It does! There are still a few left in the box - what shall we do with them?

Mmmm mmmm! Those chicken legs look soooo much tastier with little chefs' hats on the legs.
