Uk: is coronation street good?

  1. I am a 17 year old american soap lover. The soaps here are being killed slowly by horrible writing and unbelievable cast changes. I saw the episode when steve married becky…the wedding when he gets arrested. Oh and i read the wiki of sarah louise pratt…Britains own starr manning lol. I already adore eastenders with a passion. Would corrie be as good?oh and what is a tram crash?

    Answer by Sen
    It depends on your tastes I prefer Eastenders over Coronation street, the tram crash was when a tram (like and electric train) came down from a track onto the street because of an explosion in a bar underneath

    Serves 6.

    2 (2 1/2 lb.) chickens
    2 oz. butter

    For the curry mayonnaise:

    1 tbsp. olive oil
    1 sm. onion, peeled & chopped
    1 level tbsp. curry powder
    1/4 pt. (5 oz.) stock (use water & 1/4 stock cube)
    1 rounded tsp. tomato puree
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    2 rounded tbsp. gooseberry or apricot jam, or sweet chutney
    1/2 pt. (10 oz.) mayonnaise
    3 tbsp. single cream (Half & Half or whipping cream, makes no difference)

    Wipe the chickens and place a little of the butter inside each. Spread birds with remaining butter, cover with a buttered paper and place together in a roasting tin. Set in the center of a hot oven and roast for 25 minutes per pound. Remove from heat and cool.
    Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion, cover and fry very gently for 5 minutes until soft. Stir in the curry powder and cook for a further few minutes to bring out the flavor. Stir in the stock, puree, strained lemon juice and jam or chutney. Stir until boiling, then simmer for 5 minutes. Draw off the heat and strain the sauce into a basin. Allow to cool, then stir in the mayonnaise and cream.

    Remove the flesh from the chickens and arrange in a serving dish in chunky pieces. Spoon over the curry mayonnaise and serve with plain boiled rise tossed in French dressing, or with Spanish rice salad.

  3. Heyy 😀

    So this is for a story. Its fantasy, but the country has elements from various cultures. Id like this coronation to be sort of old-English-esque – like Tudors or something 😀 Im not relying totally on Yahoo Answers for this – Im gonna post this question and then hit the books ^.^

    What Im after is basic information on coronations, preferably based on an old English era – like I said, Tudors come to mind, but anything works. Basically, if you could point me in the right direction as to…
    – Who performs the coronation
    – What kind of oaths are sworn
    – Who would attend a coronation
    – Anything else that would be good to know.

    Thanks :) Ill check back in about an hour or so!

    While generally I frown on Wikipedia, they actually have a very good article on the British coronation which answers all of your questions. Please check it out.
