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.
Ooh! I haven't had Bubble and Squeak for years - my mum used to make it all the time and it was delicious! I'll look forward to your report CG!

Somehow we've managed to accumulate a variety of bits of this and that, so tonight's meal will be clean out the fridge night. It'll be a smorgasbord of things that haven't become U.F.O.s (unidentified food objects). We'll finish the walnut caramel pie for dessert.

Bummer.
That bubble and squeak looks pretty good. Does it freeze well (do you know)?

Don't right know pac. Tell ya what, I'll make sure we leave one small patty and I'll freeze it as a test.

FWIW, I'm not making that recipe exactly. So many variations on sites I decided the potatoes aren't the only thing in a mash-up tonight! If it turns out alright, I'll post how I made it. If not, you'll see the barfy smilie in my post. Heck, it's basically potato/onion/bacon/cabbage. What could go wrong?

Liking the "young un" comment!

As for clams - not going anywhere near them ever again! Nasty nasty things!

Melanzane alla parmigiana and a salad!

Sounds more impressive than eggplants, three for a dollar, from the farmers market yesterday!
