Two old shepherds were holed up in a back country hut waiting for the weather to clear.
The conversation drifted from stock to politics and they finally got around to food.
“I got one of those recipe books with pictures once. Everything looked good, but I never cook anything from it,” one shepherd said.
“Too complicated and too many strange ingredients?” his mate asked.
“That was part of the problem,” the first shepherd replied. “But even the simple recipes started with ‘take a clean dish . . .’ and that finished me.”
