I'm with you until we get to the dessert! My list there is sticky toffee pudding, coffee ice cream, cheesecake, and good solid British fruitcake with custard.

Have you ever tried boxty (shredded potatoes formed into a pancake and fried) or colcannon? Colcannon is mashed potatoes and cooked cabbage mixed together, then served hot with lots of salt and butter. Sheer heaven in the winter!

Well being a total gannet there isn't much food I don't like!!! ;) :D

My absolute favourite is probably baked salmon & salad followed by English strawberries (when in season.)

I'm also very partial to syrup sponge & custard Posted Image (even if that means another gruelling hour at the gym to work it off!!! ;) )

I'd ideally wash it all down with a large G&T (or two!!) Posted Image

Kind regards..........(hic) x

An omelette with eggs with a touch of cream beaten into them, green onions, bits of bacon, cheese and finally little dots of cream cheese put on just before folding it over. Fast and a real treat for me.

This is too funny! Last night I cooked one of my favorite meals (it's also one of the hubby's favorite) and here I see this thread today. So what was this meal?

Fried green tomatoes with shrimp and grits. YUMMY! :P Lip smacking good. I cook it once a year when you can get fresh green tomatoes that are really sweet.

Sandra,
I'm still shaking with laughter! :lol:

Grits are ground hominy. Hominy is a type of corn or maize. Grits is a very southern USA thing. My hubby and I were raised in Louisiana so grits is somewhat of a staple for us. Of course out here in the southwest, we add green chile to them to make them even more yummy.

Polenta is a coarsely ground yellow grit. I grew up calling polenta cornmeal mush. :blink:

Happy Eating

Hmmm now I'm hungry! My favourite meal is fillet steak cooked medium rare with any side dish. For pudding usually something with choclate in it or coffee or oh who cares as long as it big and comes with cream! :lol:

Take care.

Sandra,

Yum, yum and YUMMMMMMM :wub:

It being the Harvest, I look forward to making/eating manicotti, topping with home-made spaghetti sauce, which my step-daughter, who turns 50 October 2, asked that I make for her special birthday dinner!
Both it and Kraut Baroke are very labor intensive, but all is well worth it :rolleyes: !

Plus, I also LOVE to make/eat pumpkin pie with whipped cream to top it off!

Oh Janey,, I too, love grits, so whenever we eat at the Cracker Barrel, I'm the "happy recipient" of nearly everyone's grits!

Hi Jeannie!
Sandra calling,
Ok Todays the day "Colcannon day" I have ham and bacon handy , which one do you use? And the recipe says Cabbage or Kale? I think cabbage, I like better. I made a wack of cabbage rolls yesterday and have a small head of cabbage left. Did you ever put sour cream on it? In england they call it "Bangers n Mash" ! who dreams up these names! tomorrow is really a WEIRD recipe "GRITS" Janey cooks this one,can you imagine eating green tomatoes? I'll bet she's as thin as a rail, I am willing to try anything once I guess, but I looked and can't find green tomatoes, Next spring I will pick my tomatoes before they are ready I guess!Fry em up Yummers! Hmm......
Later Girls
Sandra ( gonna chomp down good tonite, Spuds!)

Ya'all hidin ov'r hera doin all the country cookin. These posts should be in our den so everyone can find them and enter into the conversation. But, I found ya'all ana way.
Wow! Grits are a great food. I like them for breakfast with butter, sugar, and milk. Or with just salt and pepper with any type of egg and muffin. Now, I just have to try them with the chilies. Just happen to have a little jar in my cabinet.
I love so many potatoe recipes using the shredded potatoes. I never have had them with cabbage though. I am on a mission. I have had them German style with many onions in them fried up like potatoe pancakes. When ever I am baking potatoes for dinner I throw in a couple extra so the next morning I can shred them up and fix them how ever I desire. Looke what ya'all have gone and done. Now I am a hankerin for breakfast. I love ya! Hugs to all of you. Oh! my mom fixes the best fried Green Tomatoes.
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl
