Today, I had one of my rare, and I say that honestly, rare culinary disasters. I had some left over mashed potato and decided to add a can of mushroom soup to that. If I had left it there it would have been fine. However, I decided it would be a good idea to put a can of trout in it, to make a chowder of sorts.
It was horrid, my valiant husband ate a bowl, but I couldn't. I tried it out on the dog and she really seemed to relish it, so she'll be enjoying it over her biscuits this evening. It made me feel better because I hate to waste food.
I am searching for ideas on how to prepare trout and this was not a better one. I have the smoker going right now and have put some trout in there that was marinated in brown sugar last night and I have been basting it with maple syrup for the last 4 hours. It is almost ready, I hope it tastes better than my trout chowder.
For supper I am cooking something I know, bangers and mash, with a lot of thick onion gravy. Couldn't get more traditionally British than that.
I like just about any food, I guess that makes me what is known as a "foodie". I have learned to make lots of different ethnic foods, and generally enjoy messing around in the kitchen, but I find falling back on the British foods I was raised with always satisfies.
Do you have a favourite food?
