Fish ’n’ chips… and gravy

It being Friday, for dinner (by which I mean my midday meal — I’m a breakfast, dinner and tea person) I had fish, mushy peas and chips. As usual, I poured a generous quantity of gravy over my chips. For some reason, some of my colleagues regard this as almost unacceptably ‘common’ and vulgar. I like my chips moist, and that means in gravy. (And if the fish is rather dry, I’ll put gravy on that too!) Some people are just too pompous to accept that personal preference and taste comes before silly ‘rules’ about acceptable food combinations.
