I season it with salt, pepper, and whatever herbs I have on hand (dry or fresh). Today it is a little bit of Old Bay and some fresh thyme. I then just spoon it over toast and serve. Today's side is tomato wedges.
ohhh I really like the sound of that, LP.......copied and pasted!!

We had oven barbecued pork ribs, mock KFC cole slaw, and garlic toast from split chabatta rolls.

Nice spreads, Dave and MsM

Oh, and I change up the "toast" too. Tonight was plain WW toast, but I have used biscuits, hamburger buns, even waffles.
Or drop biscuits, cornbread, English muffin. Waffle sounds like a really good one.

I like to use soy sometimes, or *horrors*... cooking sherry!

I thought chocolate in two meals this week would be a bit much so I didn't make a mole sauce.

It was pretty good, kids ate it so it can't be all bad!
