Food glorious, Food



Fresh bounty from the local market. Half of which went rotten and we had to through away. I don't know weights and measurements, so I always end up unwittingly asking for too much - as in two kilos of potatoes for me and Stephane. We got spuds coming out of our ears.



Corned beef hash with poached egg. My first time eating corneed beef... tastes like cat food.



Bangers and Mash. We had this the other Sunday watching the Royal Variety Show - never felt so English in my life.




Cous Cous with roasted tomatoes and aubergines...I think. Actually, I don't even remember what I put in this, but it was good.



A dish I often fall back on: pasta with courgettes in a blue cheese sauce - usually I put shrimp with this.



And last but not least, my belated Thanksgiving day meal: Turkey and stuffing (good lord my stuffing was good), mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and gravy.

Everything looks delish! My nanny used to eat corned beef hash, and I would always ask her why she ate dog food. But one question, what are bangers? I really need to make a visit to learn about life in the UK. I'm so clueless.

Bangers are sausages. They're very big into sausages here - which is fine by me.

Looking good Lauren. Yummy, those bangers just made my mouth water. Can't wait to get home next week and fill up on 'em! Merguez just isn't a good substitute.

When we all come to visit you, will you make us some?

now, did you make the cranberry sauce yourself or get canned? homemade is surprisingly easy!? who knew! everything looks delicious, esp the not-really-sure aubergine-tomato roast over couscous.

I got canned - more of a nostalgia thing really
