Lithuanian Food of The Day 4

Lithuanian Food of The Day: "Chicken hash."

My parents used to make this dish they invented: cream of chicken soup, white rice, and celery salt. Mix it all together in a pot, warm it on the stove, call is "chicken hash" and serve. I think it was born in their early poor student parent days, and it was always a hit with the kids.

On today's Lithuanian Airlines flight from Vilnuis to Gatwick, they served (well, up in business class at least) a dish with chicken, rice, and a yellowish creamy sauce. It tasted exactly like "chicken hash."

Swindon is, well, Swindon. All of the Brits we were working with in Lithuania gave us a hard time because we were being sent to the place they can't stand, which is the same place they all live. Perhaps Swindon's problem is one of attitude -- if the inhabitants were to think more highly of the city, perhaps it would improve. The other way around is more likely to have an effect, but it has to start somewhere or it will always be known as the most boring large city in Europe.

British Food of The Day: Connie's.

Chinese food in Swindon.. yummy chicken ho fun with green peppers, onions, and a spicy black bean sauce. The food really is the best thing Swindon has going.
