There's a cooking show here on Food Network called "Chopped." Four chefs are given baskets with unusual ingredients, & compete to make a "Gourmet" (well, palatable) dish.

Here's a Challenge. What dishes do you make with your goodies?

I've made French Onion Pierogy Soup (they sell frozen pierogies here).

Potsticker soup.

What dishes have you made? (Just for fun )
you little tinker cerise!! right...like you i have actually made a very passable french onion soup with the eazy onions.i have also made rather good crab cakes with the crab pate,instant mash & crushed kettle chips.i love licourice & did attempt to make a licourice sauce for icecream which was an unmitigated disaster.also made crab linguine with the pate & a bit of chilli/parsley.if i was put on the spot with that lot & i may just try it,what do you think of sardine & mussel fish pie topped with instant mash & crumbled kettle chips.jamaica ginger sponge & halwa for pud of course & all washed down with frozen grey goose??!!

One must think these things out carefully, if one is to not fail to justify one's daily chocolate. We split one of these.

Seems like a prudent decision.

Harry...do you like Shreddies?

Steve loved them to bits, but you cant get them here in Oz, which upsets him to no end!

You can get them from the British online shops but they cost a fortune and the postage

Just wondering if you like them too?

Harry, that chocolate bar is for baking. Dark chocolate and no sugar in it at all. I hope you like bitter, bitter chocolate.
