two very different snacks.

Late night, post-drinking, run-through-a-downpour to hang out under a soggy tent at midnight snack- poutine from Potato Champion:

Mid-afternoon, after work, before errands, powering-up for the rest of the day snack- Lightly steamed asparagus with poached egg and a slice of whole grain toast:

My husband made me an epic pan of macaroni and cheese last night, and as soon as I wring the recipe out of him, I'll post it here.

Love, love, love poutine. I wish I could find it here in Japan. The poached egg and asparagus looks wonderful too. Can't wait to read the mac and cheese recipe.

Asparagus and eggs--very interesting combo. Why didn't I think of that?

Mmm, Dave's Killer Bread looks so good right now (I'm assuming that's what was pictured?).

those both look amazing.... nothing is better than eggs and toast. i really need to attempt poached eggs, but i'm usually too hungry to try new things with my eggs and risk disaster. :)

I had never heard of poutine. Had to wiki it. Sounds interesting, not sure if I would like it.

Alicia Lynn Carrier said...

sarah- you're not sure if you'd like GRAVY on top of FRIED POTATOES?! that's like saying, "oh man- orgasms. didn't know what they were- had to wiki it. i don't know if i'd like it."

IT'S GRAVY ON POTATOES!!!!!! IT'S LIKE MOUTH ORGASM!

Mui said...

wait... poutine? actually called, poutine? in Oregon! WOW! As you probably know that is a very very Québécois meal :) I didn't think they sold that post-drinking-delicacy anywhere but in Québec! Again for you readers, poutine is french fries topped with curdled cheese and a big ol' splash of gravy. Add chicken, smoked meat, ham, peas, ground beef, what ever you want for an illusion of health ;)

:O you guys have poutines in america ? wow, that's cool ! good food ideas travel far ! :D

French lover said...

I didn't know there was poutine outside of Quebec !!!
That mac and cheese made me so hungry...

Melissa said...
