It won accolades from the young lass. It had, after all, been her idea and strangely enough not something I would ever have thought of. So it’s not surprising that she uttered the following sentence.
“Nan, this is the best supper in the whole wide world.”
Local rancher ground beef turned into the stellar hamburgers that my other half is known for. Ceasar salad, which right now is the 4 year old’s absolute favourite thing to eat. AND poutine. Like first off what 4 year old knows what poutine is? Secondly how is it that I have NEVER had poutine until this moment in time.
Well ok I kind of grew up under a rock or at least in the boondocks. I had never heard of poutine and even my city raised husband doesn’t remember it either. In fact he visited Quebec in 1980 and doesn’t even remember it being a “thing” that tourists did.
Occasionally when I was a teenager, if a sporting event was over at the right time, we would go the cafe for fries but I was like NO NOT Pass The Gravy Near My Fries. I thought that was gross and disgusting. I liked salt and vinegar on my fries, not even ketchup. It’s still rare for me to put ketchup on fries. So gravy and cheese curds? Hm…
Fast forward a few decades and I guess it was time. Momma always tells Young A that “you don’t know if you don’t like it unless you try it” so Nan stepped up to the plate.
Did you know you can even buy a small package of cheese curds? Who knew? You can also buy a package to make gravy for poutine so that’s super easy. We often make our own fries but Young A’s favourite ones are the Cavendish ones and she’s right – they are good!
Really this post comes without any instructions or recipes except ENJOY! Now the problem is to avoid eating it too often! I am quite certain it would be outstanding with an IPA craft beer sitting outside on a patio.
So there you have it. A quick and easy #whatonyourplateblogchallenge finally completed just in time the August challenge that can be found on Donna’s blog here or Deb’s here at https://widowbadass.com/ . For such a simple concept it’s been 3 weeks in the draft file!
Now tell me. Did you know that poutine is so tasty or are you team virgin fries?
