Good suggestion Jeri, but there won't be any onions! Apparently during Rick's checkered childhood, he was sent to a private school (in the UK we call it "public" school) where they had the nerve to try and force him to eat a creamed onion. His refusal, and it's aftermath became legendary at Lower Canada College in Montreal. When we go to a Chinese or Indian restaurant, he often mimics someone dying of food poisoning in order to get the "no onions" message across. A trifle self-indulgent, but I feel the same about smoked salmon - which he positively inhales!

Get him to tell you about the infamous "Christmas Turkey Massacre"! McKnees was visiting from Glasgow, and witnessed that. It was like something out of "Fawlty Towers".
