Maureen: There’s a very strong smell of vinegar in the air. I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Did you use more than was called for in the recipe?
Tim: Just a little bit more. Do you like it?
Maureen: The chicken doesn’t taste as vinegary as the kitchen smells, so I do. Did you make any changes to it?
Tim: Well, I omitted the raisins.
Maureen: That was a good decision. As you know, I’m not a fan of raisins, especially when you put them in savoury dishes. Do you know what this reminds me of, though?
Tim: I think I know what you’re going to say.
Maureen: Chinese sweet and sour chicken. It tastes a lot like that.
Tim: I know! I think so too. Except this is Italian.
Maureen: Well the pasta makes it so, doesn’t it.
