Fettuccine with a porcini mushroom sauce (garlic, shallots, porcinis, button mushrooms, etc.). Green salad to start.

The local volunteer fire department had a fundraiser dinner tonight. They served: half BBQ chicken, polenta with marinara sauce, rolls, salad, and dessert.

What about you?
This was my hoagie. I didn't include the peppers. I basically made a cheesy garlic bread on a frech roll, then added the sausage with lightly sautéed onions and a sprinkling of italian seasoning. The french fries were left out, because the hoagie and pickle were enough.

I love chicken wings, and yours looks really delicious! What did you serve with them. I would have had carrots/celery and bleu cheese or ranch dressing for dunking!

I mixed this supreme style sauce to fried cubes of chicken with sauted onion, carrot and peas and topped with a creamy potato mash

Photo is nothing special I'm afraid but it tasted delish

So, you had a five-star chicken shepherd's pie!? Fancy Pants! I know most of what you were talking about. By the way, the photo is fantastic!

Lovely looking hoagie VB That would certainly hit the spot! I always think of Bonfire night in England when I see sausages in a roll with onions because I always used to make them together with hot soup and jacket spuds

I actually said that to Ellen when she asked what we was having It's a kind of shepherds pie but with chicken!! It's like learning a whole new language doing this online course but very very interesting and fun.
