Haluski looks like nice comfort food. What do you have with it or is it just a big bowl of that?

We preface the meal with some homemade onion-and-garlic soup, in which we dip fresh rye bread.

It's just as amusing when someone becomes upset when someone dislikes food they themselves like. ("It angers me that you don't like Brussels sprouts!")

"Lightweight" indeed. cool


On this occasion I was merely alluding to the fact that I see myself as a heavyweight. Go on feel those muscles, I dare ya.
I am now sitting with arm tensed in classic Mr universe pose.

Anyway tonight's menu chicken curry (using boneless chicken thighs and the usual suspects)
Tomorrow - cod fillet,boiled potatoes and some veg, undecided at this time.
Thursday - roast pork, with crackling, roast potatoes, whole carrots cooked in with the roast spuds( excellent trick).
Friday breast of lamb, probably just a pile of that.
Saturday we're slumming it. Just burger and chip. A decent Aberdeen Angus from Aldi.
Sunday gammon joint, carrot and turnip, spuds again. Gammon is one of dad's greatest creations.
Get your.head round that lot. big grin

I'd always been lead to believe that anything West of Newton-Le-willows was pretty much Mad Max territory and everyone eating their own babies.

But you live like kings.

Meanwhile, back Leigh-way everyone is eating lobby with pickled red cabbage and still wondering why they're coughing up cotton, even though all the factories closed down yonks ago.

Almost right. It's only the first born and at the summer solstice. Failing that when a holy grail gets released.

Gosh, this has veered way past plain old Pork Pie or Sausage Rolls lol. Great stuff.

I'm loving the disdain for the offal. I have to hold my hands up though and admit, that despite the annoyance I displayed at my mother-in-law's pre-Chrismas meal last year, I actually enjoyed the chicken liver pate she served me. Otherwise I avoid the stuff like the plague.

But when we get to the point where we're giving our menus for the week that's not in line with pork pies vs sausage rolls!! Ha, ha.. Some nice stuff on there, mind..

I forgot about chicken liver pate. I do like that quite a bit.

Smoked mackerel pate is excellent too. There's plenty of recipes out there to make that that people should try.

It's also good as part of a big spread with pork pies and sausage rolls.

That it is. Though I love breast of lamb. Delicious but very messy, greasy that is.

A meat pie of a different sort have become favorites: the Russian meat pie.

The ones depicted here are close to what I've eaten, minus the rice. I've tried the egg and onion, the potato, the chicken, and the pork. All are delicious.

I've also developed a bit of a currywurst obsession; the German restaurant I frequent makes a superb one.

Did the Turner's pork pie AND sausage roll thing again in the pub yesterday afternoon. Bliss. One of each fresh from the butcher's.

In a pub and fresh from the butcher's are not two phrases that I would expect to see together big grin

In our village it is possible. Unless there's some innuendo or something I'm not getting there.....

Otherwise you're looking at twenty min walk tops from one (butcher) to t'other (pub). (That's two villages and I live on the outer reaches of a town between 'em both).

On this occasion no innuendo intended ( I must be slipping). I was humoursly suggesting that pub food was all out of packets, tins and warmed up .

Ha.. no worries I'm happy to report that on Thursday these things are delivered fresh and there are served for a a couple of days. They are really only perfect on the day of production (when they are stunning, with the pork pies the best in the country!). After that they are like any others.

Otherwise this particular pub still survives without having to do food as such other than the snacks. Otherwise you're largely correct of course although there are one or two exceptions and without being a 'gastropub'. My other local is quite good with the amount of homemade and fresh stuff. Including real chips!

Yep. I always spat liver and kidney out as a kid.
And I've found no reason to not continue doing so as an adult.
Ecchh!! Disgusting.



Both liver and kidney are wonderful if prepared properly. Unique flavours and textures, as different from one another as chicken and turkey, which makes me think that a dislike of both is probably based on a flawed understanding of either biology or cuisine. Kidney isn’t really suited to much other than adding to steak in a pie, but liver on its own is a treat.

Lambs’ or calves’ liver is better than pigs’ liver to my way of thinking, and because it comes in packs enough for two people I trim it to within an inch of its life to get rid of any tubes or connective tissue. Then I season some flour and coat the liver with it before frying for a few minutes on a medium flame, constantly turning the liver over and over throughout.

Makes a great meal with a jacket potato and green beans. I don’t have it very often as Mrs TG shares your incomprehensible prejudice so only make it when she’s out at yoga and I have time on my hands.

Lovely!

Like you say to each their own. We prefer pig's liver and in our abode.,

Hey listen, I wish I DID like offal. I'm no meat-is-murder type but I do feel that if we're going to kill a beast for food then every bit should be used. I prefer to have as varied a taste as possible so that I could eat ANYTHING. Sadly it ain't the case with liver and kidney.
