Lunch anyone?

Every morning at 11.20am precisely, Keith looks at his Starship Enterprise clock in the shop and starts to make 'food' signals which is my cue to ask what everyone wants for their lunch. Being the 'junior' it is usually my task to pop round to KwikSave and browse the delicatessen counter in search of what Keith normally calls 'jubbly bits' - in other words, his lunch!
Doing this on a daily basis means it sometimes becomes a little difficult to ring the changes, but tonight, I have the answer, thoughtfully provided by Michael Palin in his current Sunday evening programme Himalayas with Michael Palin. He has just mentioned having 'dried yak buttock' for breakfast!
So there we are - when anyone decides they are bored with what's on offer at the local deli, I shall suggest yak buttock sandwiches.
Mind you, I'm not sure how the girls on Kwik Save's deli counter will react when I ask them for it! On second thoughts, perhaps I am...........


  1. Ooooooo Jen you been dining on "smartarse sandwhiches" again!

  2. Oh that prog starts here this week, odd we are normally weeks behind you. Dunno about Dried Yak tho... do they have that in Kwikis?

  3. Butties - please, Michelle! Elspeth, you'll enjoy the programme. I'll let you know if I see yak buttock, dried or otherwise in Kwiki's! :)

  4. Lol Jenny, sounds lovely! Not! but in my Kwiksave experience I imagine the girls on the deli counter would be hard pressed to understand much you say....they rarely stop chatting to each other long enough to register the presence of customers! :o/

  5. Em, is that a pleas for me to send you some???

  6. I that that Spam was dried buttocks - not sure as to what animal though!
