Thanks Pac!

We're cleaning bitsies out of the fridge and having crepes. I've made the crepes, we have diced chicken, onions, ham, salami, two kinds of grated cheese, a smidgen of herb and garlic cream cheese and some lettuce and tomato. For the dessert crepes we have nutella, bananas, raspberries and hopefully some whipped cream.

Oh and we also have that saskatoon pie. Its pretty as a picture right now, but Ken has been drooling over the smell all afternoon so I suspect as soon as it is cool enough to cut, it will be inhaled!

I'll try to get the energy to bake an apple pie, so we know for sure there is something that we'll like.
I made garlic broccoli Broccoli with Garlic Recipe It was okay. I think steamed broccoli with garlic butter would have been as good for less effort. I made cumin beef with ground beef (experiment). It was tasty, but a bit dry. The cucumber salad was good, but far too salty. That may have been because I used an English cuke. It didn't give off much liquid. I wonder if a regular cuke would have given off a fair bit more liquid and washed away some of that salt.

No apple pie. I did a "mise-en-place" for the cumin beef. It was all on one plate, which hopped onto the floor. Had to do all the mincing again. Sort of drained me. I was trying to have everything ready, so I could just cook and then I had to rush and re-mince all that stuff. I'm glad I had enough ingredients that I didn't run out. I have had to put ginger on the shopping list.

I did chicken fricassee. Even though I did a lot of the prep work the night before, it was still ultra time-consuming and tedious. It was absolutely delicious, but I won't be making it again for a looooooong time!

Today is only the 10th. You post this on the 9th for Monday which is the 11th. Is there a reason we are skipping posting for the 10th?

The title of the thread has been changed to " Grub's up 9/11/13 (11/9/13)"

The date is written in European/Canadian format day/month/year and then in parentheses in US format month/day/year.

Personally I prefer YYYY-MM-DD, the date of the thread being 2013-11-09. (Or YYYY MMM DD - 2013 Nov 09)

I had a taste for garlic last night, too, so put some minced garlic in with the spinach while it was steaming along with a little olive oil.
