Are chips vegetables?
This highly philosophical question, which sometimes prevents me from sleeping, can probably be related to the culture shock we mentioned in a previous lesson. According to some French prejudices, the Belgian are supposed to eat chips all the time, which I can assure you we don't do. Anyway, when we eat some, we mainly eat them as a side dish, with meat or fish and vegetables, NEVER with pasta, rice, pizza, baked potatoes or other "carbohydrates". So do the British consider chips as vegetables like tomatoes, courgettes or the famous green peas? Do I miss anything not eating chips with my spaghettis? Please let me know and help me to sleep better!
