Maureen: This is my second try with this dish, since it didn’t work at all the first time around, since again there was a problem with the cooking times for the chicken. What do you think?
Tim: It’s just OK.
Tim: I’m not a huge fan of sweet dinners.
Maureen: Yes, it’s the honey the makes it so sweet.
Tim: Very much so. What do you think of it?
Maureen: It’s fine, but there’s nothing special about it. This is the problem with all the recipes in this book. There’s no care or attention paid to the ingredients. Just assemble them and bang them in the oven. It’s assembly, not cooking. Would you like me to make it again?
Tim: No. Would you like it again?
Maureen: Probably not.
Tim: This month hasn’t been very good, has it?
Maureen: Sadly, no. Donna’s been a big disappointment.
