It is pretty hard to beat a couple of prime rib steaks done to a turn on the barbeque with baked potatoes and a nice salad and maybe a few baby carrots and a bottle of Jackson Triggs Cabernet Souvignon

I'm not sure if I have a favorite, but rather favoriteS. Chili con carne is one of them. I also like making a couple Chinese dishes, Japanese dishes, Italian dishes, Irish stew (but I replace the lamb with elk, moose, or beef), burritos, seafood chowders, poached smoked cod, etc. I haven't tried any Greek dishes yet, but would like to try.

you've just made up my mind for me juan, 'what' I'm taking out of the freezer for a meal later, we just bought
a nice stainless steel barbecue, will be assembled today while steaks thaw out. Thanks Juan, enjoy yours,
as we will ours.

Ham and eggs and fried spuds, 2nd choice would be a head cheese sandwich.

Spaghetti with my special spaghetti sauce. 2nd would be a nice pork roast with roast potatos and carrots, done either in the oven or the bbq.

Roast pork is excellent and a lot more tender than most beef roasts.

Looks like we have a spam artist on board- deep six him.

we could live on our favourite spaghetti, complete with my home made sauce, (original recipe from rome), secondly a good old english
roast beef and yorkshire pudding, complete with the mashed potatoes and two veggies, a touch of gravy.

Always love eggs, bacon, home fried potatoes, toast and jam, but do not eat for breaky any more, only
cook it once in a while for supper.

barbecued rib steak, mushroom, onions, herb salad (grapeseed oil and balsamic) dressing, a slice of
home made bread.

a very quality made 'seafood' chowder, we spring for it once in a while at our 'locals' restaurant, it
is divine, with a nice bread to go with.
I am so fussy about fish chowders though, dislike most of them, but this particular one is great, but
a little pricy, only for special occasions.

Talloola - When we lived in Courtenay 30 years ago, there was a small restaurant right across the highway from Driftwood Mall called the Winter Gardens run by an elderly German couple- she did the cooking he did the waiting- we used to love going there for Weinerschnitzel. I don't think we've had better food ever.

I remember them, they haven't been there for quite a few years, we also went there a few times, that
place has been a few different businesses, might be a second hand store now.

Was McSwiggins here when you were here? Very good place to eat, but it is now
called beachwood cafe, and totally different. It was right on the corner where
you turned to go to the Whistle Stop, and Toyota auto, and that street that goes
around by the little airport, (which is still there by the way.)

McSwiggins rings a bell but I can't place it. There was also the "Old House" on 17th St. just west of the bridge. Excellent food there but a little steep for the average wage slave. It's been over 11 years since I was last in Courtenay- should go back and see what my old place looks like at the corner of Rachel and Salsbury.

cooking is one of my favorite hobbies - perhaps my fave quick meal is Mexican relish and taco chips:

relish:

jalopeņos + onion + sweet red peppers + tomato = all finely chopped

olive oil + Italian salad dressing

dip the tacos chips and you've got a great snack

As with all my recipes, there is no right or wrong answer as to how much of any ingredient you use. You put in as much or as little as you like.

we just drove up rachael the other day, and went along salsbury, looking at our old houses where we lived.
that area has not changed much at all, a few new houses, but in general, the atmosphere is the same.
They did log out that forest between rachael and the big pipe, so probably has been reforested now,
they logged it out about 10 years ago.

Old House is still there, but they have bought all of the property around them, tore down existing buildings,
and built condos, 1/4 share type, but they do look nice.

The mill is also completely gone.

Went to The Old House only once. I didn't see anything on the menu I liked so - we left. We were not un-pleasant about it but the waitress saw fit to be so - we never went back. It's sad the mill is gone. We used to drive by there everyday on the way home to Comox until we moved into Courtenay. We lived on Griffin, just off Back Road.

Uh - Juan - I live closer and I know who you are and I think I know where you live. I think it's better if you ask me! Since it's Father's Day - don't you think you might be a little busy?

I like making Reuben sandwiches, tater salad, and coleslaw besides what I mentioned earlier.
Grilled cheese (real cheese) sandwiches with kippers in Louisiana hotsauce is a fave, too.

I try - and keep on trying - to re-create the tastes of my childhood: Old recipe Hungarian meals, as my Mother used to make them.

Hungarian head cheese is really good, as you probably well know.

"Hungarian head cheese is really good, as you probably well know."

The BEST!! I used to go to a Hungarian deli in the Hamilton Farmers' Market to get some. I live in Winnipeg now, and sadly, except for one local deli, there is no good place to find good head cheese or sausage, for that matter.

I find that amazing in a city of close to a million people. You should start up a deli there.

If you can't derive enjoyment out of headcheese that's your loss.
