Following along again with Toni's A-Z, "a...is for" meme, today's letter is N.
Gold is one of my favourite metals, (the other is Silver), I especially like it in nugget form, the different shapes are so interesting.
Years ago, when the baby was about a year and a half old, we all took a trip to Sovereign Hill for the day and let the older kids do a little gold panning in the creek.
They didn't find any gold nuggets, not so much as a single speck, but we did have a great day out.
Also golden, but nuggets of a different kind, much loved by kids...
I don't think they are as nice now as when they were first introduced, not sure why, they're just...different, somehow.
These days if I want chicken nuggets, I'll make my own. Just like making chicken schnitzels in miniature. More fiddly, but worth the trouble. And if you make a large amount, they freeze quite well.
A while ago I read a story in a newspaper about a girl in the UK who had eaten nothing but chicken nuggets since she was two years old.
That's a lot of nuggets!
And quite sad that she'd refused to try anything else at all in all that time, although I believe she has since learned to eat other things. Think of all the flavours she missed out on!
