Counselor: Ah, Mr Anchovy! Do sit down.
Anchovy: Thank you. Take the weight off the feet, eh?
Counselor: Yes, Yes.
Anchovy: Lovely weather for the time of year I must say!
Counselor: Enough of this gay banter. Now, Mr Anchovy…”

SUBJECT: King Oscar Anchovy tin
There is only one reason this tin of anchovies made its way to my kitchen counter this afternoon. I was making one of HandsomeHusband's favorite elixirs...homemade Caesar dressing. I only make this dressing when preparing tonight's particular dinner: Caesar Salad with Crispy Parmesan Chicken. Mayonnaise, fresh lemon juice, anchovy fillets, garlic and Dijon mustard are combined to make the dressing. Chicken cutlets are dipped in an egg wash, then dredged in a breadcrumb mixture (fresh breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and some black pepper). The chicken is cooked in a small amount of olive oil on the stovetop. Finally, Romaine leaves, some chunked tomatoes and the fried chicken are arranged on a plate and drizzled with the dressing. Pure bliss.
