To be eaten cold…

We are now guaranteed two types of weather for the next month – howling rain, or glorious sunshine. One might change to the other in less than half a second, meaning that if you’ve already kick-started Picnic Season, it might be wise to employ a couple of hungry street urchins to be on cloud watch while you eat. Any hint of condensation, and get them to make that owl noise that people do through their thumbs, into some kind of hand conch. That way, you can quickly fashion a waterproof gazebo, while the drunk Barbecue prats stop playing wallop the football for a couple of minutes to go owl hunting.

Anyway, to celebrate Picnic Season, we’ve flung open the Interestment Cook Book, and come up with recipes that even a footballer could understand. Today, tasty chicken drumsticks…

You will need…

1. A dozen drumsticks

2. Salt and Pepsie

3. Honey, the clear stuff.

4. Mustard, the grainy stuff.

5. A fridge and an oven.

Now simply hurl the seasoned drumsticks into an oven on around 180 degrees, let them sizzle and cook for about half an hour, or until they look like they’re done. Then smear them with the tasty honey and mustard dressing you’ve been mixing up, pop them in the fridge overnight, and bosh. Drumsticks.

    This is a better way of doing it:

    Stick drumsticks in a bowl with honey, mustard, soy sauce, worcester sauce, salt and pepsie. Pour the lot into a freezer bag and sort of mulch around so everything gets covered. Tie the bag and stick the in the fridge for as long as you can (overnight if poss). Decant into a dish and whack em in the oven as above. You can either finish them off on the BBQ or let them cool to take to the Common for Picnic season

    *hunts for owls*

    I’m with forty-forty five on this one, and if you’ve run out of honey and mustard then try tomato ketchup with soy sauce and worcester sauce – a tasty treat … add some tabasco if you are feeling really brave…
