156 – Eat from a KFC bucket
Some of the usual suspects (Em, Charlie, Carolyn & Kelvin) and I were having a typically glamorous and exciting evening (i.e. heckling trashy tv and talking rubbish about nothing in particular) when we started trying to decide what to eat. We leafed through various takeaway menus and compared notes on great little places we knew…
[I should point out at this point that normally our catering arrangements are normally much more impressive, home-cooked and less bucket-based than what we ended up with]
… Eventually, based on Em’s craving for corn on the cob and the fact that I’ve never really had ‘proper’ KFC food we somehow decided that I absolutely had to try a ‘bucket’ and that this had to go on my list. We therefore merrily traipsed off to KFC, all thoughts of great hand-made, stonebaked pizza replaced by ethically questionable chicken-based products and gravy.
Much as I’m generally a junk food fan, the KFC menu remains a mystery to me so it was useful to have Kelvin & Charlie to guide us through the array of bucket-based options. In the end we went for ‘The Full Works’; chicken bits, baked beans, more bits of chicken, chips, some more chicken, some questionable coleslaw, chicken, gravy and lots of mini packets of salt. Back in my slightly less harshly lit flat (seriously, who designs KFCs?! They’re terrifying places, all ‘funky’ light fittings, wipe clean surfaces and enormous pictures of smiling people at funny angles on the walls) we laid out the feast, started eating and waited for the meat sweats to kick in!
Actually it wasn’t that bad really and I can now tick something off my list (though it’s a shame it’s not one of the more ‘make a good impact on the world’ items but ho hum. I have now eaten from a KFC bucket
