Rev Nick - give me poutine, or give me death

More than a decade ago, friends here and I shared supper ideas. Just to break up the occasional bit of common and boring. So. What will your supper be?

Rev Nick - give me poutine, or give me death

This being a bleak Sunday, I have:

- simple iceberg lettuce salad, choices of dressings
- a 4.4 pound (2 kg) slab of ham to bake with brown sugar and ginger ale. (Half goes to a pot-luck dinner later)
- scalloped potatoes, some medium cheddar cheese grated in
- carrots, skinned and made to sticks, light simmered to "al dente"
- an apple crisp for dessert

I'm going to make cassoulet. A good late-Fall dish with chicken, rice, cannellini, and spices

Sounds right tasty, Paul. Nothing like a flavourful hot meal on a bleak and damp December day. smiley - smiley

I thought I'd do curried mince - it needs to be something quick because I've got to go shopping first as we were away all weekend.

With rice.

smiley - shrug Stayed at work so long that shopping wasn't an option. I dug some fish out of the freezer, as well as some potato wedges with rosemary, and some fennel that I froze before we went on holiday. Thawed out, heated through, stirred up a lemony sauce. It went down well and only took 15 minutes, except that some of the potatoes weren't quite thawed out and were a bit cold in the middle. Not such a problem with the hot sauce on them.

Still-cold spuds are - ummm - ick.

Wait for Sunday coming - my bride is part of a church choir and opted to arrange a "pot-luck" supper. There should be some colourful and interesting options ....

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

well, dinner was a sort of stew/curry/dhal thing, more a dal/dahl than anything else I guess, with red split lentals, pasanta mushrooms, onion, garlic, chilis, stock, and chicken and.... a potato and whatever else I found in the fridge, plus some spices thrown in which I had with naam bread tonight... that was dinner/supper.... supper supper is soon... and probably just toast and cheese or ham, or perhaps a sandwich smiley - zensmiley - ponysmiley - pandasmiley - hotdog

For supper tonight,I had a can of beef barley soup and some French-bread frozen pizza. It was cheap and filling, but no gourmet treat...

My supper had a bit of a change up: it was indeed the 8-oz steak, fungus and roots, shrimps and scallops. But the spuds were very creamy mashed and whipped, drizzled with beef au jus.

The veggies were 50/50 though - nicely done carrots, but also 3 of those horrid mini-green-cabbage things. (Brussels sprouts).

They bin very easily. smiley - biggrin

Oooh lovely Brussels sprouts - if there are any left over, I keep going to the fridge and popping them in my mouth like sweets.
