I love waterzooi but I also make wafles when the kids are here :) I'd like to learn more Belgian dishes with fish, and also with beer - do you have some tips for me?

The traditional dish with beer is stoofvlees, but I can't remember if you eat meat? Other than that, I'd have to think. I'm not a great cook, and the person who does most of the cooking at home is British, not Belgian. If I think of something, I'll let you know.

Thanks! Yes I know "carbonade", and you're right, I don't eat meat... Which is why I was wondering, is there a vegetarian alternative, or at least something with fish? :D

That's not fish, but maybe it'll work. :D

Thanks!
At home we usually have lunch in the kitchen, listening to music

I used to do that when I was younger (particularly with old Malayalam movie songs). I think my dad got me to stop doing it.
I like it when we're 5 (us 3 + my husband's children), it makes the tiny kitchen table crowdy :D

I'd say when there are five of us (the three of us +...)...table crowded.

Haha I love your culture OldBoring! Sadly potatoes are forbidden :silly:
And moules, no one likes except me so... Kind of unpopular! :D
I dislike eating in complete silence.... I find it oppressing... Even if we are in cheerful conversation, I'd rather have some background music - reggae or jazz or film music or (my best choice) swing!

Thanks for your tip Vijay! :partyhat:

Poutine (obviously)
Donair
Butter Tarts
Nanaimo Bars
Bannock
Sxusem (soapberry "ice cream")
Wild blueberries (they taste way better than store bought)
Saskatoon Berries
Beaver tails (like a pastry)
Maple... everything. Bacon, ham, doughnuts, sweets, etc.
Ukranian, Dutch, German and French meal influences are in the prairies (pierogi and sauerkraut, holopchi, farmer sausage, onion soup, etc.) and everything is with rye bread basically. Irish/Scottish in the Maritime provinces. Not really sure of the other provinces.
