Potato and Butternut Squash Gratin; the day after — 3 Comments

  1. This gratin can save our attitude about gratin. In the States, I remember a sort of crumbled bread over green beans. At least those cooks had a broiler, which we don’t have now.

    The notion of stronger cheese is intriguing; will be trying that soon.

    About Thanksgiving, there is no hope in this household. Neither of us were fortunate enough to grow up with turkey, or unfortunate enough to have to cook turkey under pressure with guests and family inbound.

    When we returned to Europe as adults, we did get the day off as Yanks, but all the restos were open so we got used to going out for lunch instead. It was a treat to be off on a Thursday for lunch. Eventually, we settled on preferring a certain style of food, over the long years of marriage. Yesterday, she had lamb curry and I had beef curry. We gave thanks.

  2. I love leftovers too. Pizza for breakfast is a favourite with some of my children but leftover desserts for breakfast like trifle or pavlova are wonderful and naughty !!

  3. Dan, I rather liked celebrating with the golfers – always a good Catalan dinner with lots of wine. To be honest, I don’t really miss the big production – and it was a BIG production when we lived in the US.Curry sounds good…. We had Spinach Burgers with Mushroom Red Wine Sauce…. also good

    kate, pizza for breakfast – yum…. And I love sweets for breakfast – hot chocolate and Christmas cookies – soon
