Some wise British words from Downton Abbey for you to ponder:
- On being female: “I’m a woman; I can be as contrary as I choose.”
- On dating: “She thinks that if you put a toy down, it’ll still be sitting there when you want to play with it again.” …silly girl!
- On dissing in the early 20th century: “At least I’m not fishing with no bait.” Oh snap, BURN.
And my British-ism? I’m really keen on this quinoa recipe! With the mango, green onion, black beans, and quinoa, it’s such a fun combination of flavors- sweet! salty! tangy! and it’s healthy too! Such a party in your mouth! :) (You don’t have to tell anyone it vegan if that’s gonna scare them off, but it’s sooooooooooo yummy I just might shout it from the rooftops!) Try it!
