My order was chicken fried rice & curry chicken with vegetables (highly unlikely any Chinese takeout can screw this up).
They can if you are in Kelowna.

We did that last year. At least we tried, by the time we called to order we would have been lucky to get it by the next year!

Tried several Chinese take outs in the months following and there is not 1 we would order from again. I sure miss the Chinese food in Vancouver. Too bad Ruby's closed as they were decent.

As soon as I seen Her Obituary in Castanet I figure out why they closed down the restaurant.

Tonight I made my order online, by the time I got there it was ready to go.

Until 15 ? years ago, I always called the creation of a casserole (?) with mashed potatoes and ground beef, "Shepard's Pie"

I then learned that "real" Sheppard's Pie was made with lamb and the one I've been making is called "Cottage Pie" (I still mostly call it Shepard's Pie)

Came across a recipe created by Darren McGrady, he is the former Kensington Palace chef. He cooked for William and Harry since they were tiny babies. His "Cottage Pie" was the favorite of William.

The recipe was printed in a magazine article.

If anyone is interested, I can provide the pdf.

Gnocchi, with some polenta sauce that was left over from a few weeks ago. And washed down with a glass of red.

And for dessert, the last piece of Nanaimo bar. Sorry Cats. :biggrin:

Ratatouille

Supposed to be ok, but after watching that hideous movie years ago, I will never order it.

Oldest Kiddo turned 18 and he wanted to order from Frankie's Modern Diner.

I had a small mediterranean salad with seared tuna.

Liver, onions and bacon. :up:
Now how much more budget-minded can one get with a main course costing $2.46. It was more than the two of us could eat.
Leftovers for lunch after shoveling tomorrow? :biggrin:

I'm sure the onions, bacon, butter, and white wine that were added doubled the price. :200:

Liver, onions and bacon. :up:
:thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: Don't like it. Won't eat it. Mom loved it and would make it once or twice a month. Mom, dad and the siblings would have liver and onions for dinner but when it came to what I'd be having, it was either 1) mom would cook something else for me or 2) dad would slip me a few bucks so I could go grab a burger, fries and shake or whatever at the restaurant.

Iron.
Vitamin B
Magnesium.
Calcium.
They are all found in liver. And guess what they're good for?

SLEEPING. :200:
And a little white wine helps too.

Now it's time to get back to your roots. :biggrin:

The finer things in life.........liver and onions, pickled herrings, headcheese.

........the great thing was nobody would EVER steal your lunch when they found out what it may contain.
