Thanks Katy! I'll tell you how it goes.

pacanis, thanks for the compliment.

Sadly, I was lazy and played on the computer so long the cake might not get made! I'll have to see if it takes too long in the oven or if I can squeeze it in now!

Well, after all the trials, tribulations and discussions - I give you Crab and Sweetcorn Chowder (sort of) The good news is Ollie liked it and we had two empty dishes! So, undoubtedly not very authentic, but jolly tasty!

It sure does look delicious. Great looking chowder, Katy.

And I like your experiment, Alix. I take it you aren't going to try to turn or toss anything. Let us know how it comes out. Oh, are you going to cover it at all?

Thanks!

Well I have never seen anything quite like it and I am fascinated to see how it turns out! (I am a big fan of "one-pot" dishes.)

Thanks Pac.

Well it was easy to do and it looks like pictures of chowders that I have seen so that is good enough for me!

I can't find orange roughy by us. It ain't Lake Erie Perch, but I'll have to look for roughy when we are visiting the kiddos later this year.

Alix, if I introduce you to my friend Pat you can add one more to your list - her birthday is today too! Also, your dinner looks really good. As in, if I made that for the two of us I'd have to use two smaller dishes and hide one of them right after they come out of the oven!

*******

I'm planning on making Bubble 'n' Squeak for the first time tonight, but I'm also debating on whether or not to do my grocery run today or tomorrow. After shopping I have no interest in cooking that night! Anyway, I have the potatoes baking right now so they can cool (I never have leftover baked spuds) and I might prep all the other ingredients while waiting for the potatoes (and a load of laundry). If I make it today I'll report back later. If I don't make it till tomorrow you'll see it in that thread.
