Poutine...????

Jeez RBG you don't really want know that. It's instant cardiac arrest and an overload of grease on a plate viz: Chips (french fries for the north Americans) cheese melted over and greasy gravy. Yeuch! Oh and the cardiac arrest is proceeded by a projectile vomit. Other than that it's "real neat" as they say in that part of the world.

Never met a Canadian I didn't like, and by all the Gods, I've met a fair few of them.

Then again, I never met a South African I didn't like either, and by the same Gods, I've probably met more of them than I have Canucks.

Judge me as you see fit.

Sounds like Canadians have a bad case of 'kiwi syndrome'.
Well, in fairness they're probably our favourite cousins, you have to have lived the thing to understand it, but the "syndrome" I believe is the weak excuse the other members of our Anglospheric family give as being the reason for their inferiority complex where we are concerned.

Mr Thunder,this is Underhill in Gateshead,the first house in the entire world to have electric light throughout,ten year before that plagerist Edison even thought of electric light,and rolling dried beaver pelts in balls and connecting them to a Wimshurst machine does not count.

Mr Draper, that house is only fit for peasants. Why, the tennis court is not even floodlit. What's the world coming to?

RT - what's poutine?
According to our ex-Prime Minister Jean Chretien, it's the last President of Russia.

Actually it's a dish of chips (french fries) smothered in cheese curds and a brown sauce resembling mucilage, of no nutritional value, barely fit to slop hogs.

I always thought that the Ffrench (spit) invented La Canade?
The Brits just nicked it off them.

So, in other words, much like British cuisine (minus the cheese curds... and not counting the curries...)

Poutine

Oh. And there was me thinking it might be something culinary involving chicken, herbs, garlic, maybe a splash of wine, even a flourish of maple syrup to add that je ne sais quoi.

Er, er, er, probably tastes better than it sounds. Canadians are nice people; perhaps this concoction is out of character. There must be something hidden in the description that I've missed ....... God, is that the time? Better go and, um, plant something in the garden.


(I don't think I'll ask what poutine actually means. )

In Hawai`i, cheesy chips are known as snotties.

That must be Hawai'i, Scotland... I lived in Hawai'i 5 years, spent time on every island and never encountered the term.
However, in times past, midshipmen in the RN were known as 'snotties' and a Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab that has just molted its shell is also known as a 'snotty'.
The plate lunch is Hawai'i's primary contribution to global cardiac failure. That, and the highest per capita Spam consumption on the planet... particularly the Spam musubi.

On the menu in both Fiasco's and Shooters in Hilo, and in what used to be Charley's bar at Keaau Junction. Local term, I guess.

You can, sadly, get a deluxe spam musubi with added furikake.

The only good thing to come from spam is Keola Beamer's Spam Haiku. Mad. Utterly barking.

Keola Beamer! That's something we can agree on. Met him once... he is just like his music.

No worries RT. Will have some brined pork chops on your behalf. A drop of balsamic vinegar in the mix for a touch of sweetness perhaps?

BTW, who did you offend to earn such an odious ban?
