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.

Hm I guess peoples' food-habits are kind of a personal thing. :para: As for me, I'm straight forward (or a straight shooter :lol: ). The only kind of food i won't touch is tangy. That means ranch-style or anything with several flavors in it. I get queasy :whistle:

Time: Breakfast 06~11:52 (i once was told brunch came after this)
Dinner 14:00
Supper 19:00 (a rarity for me to have on a Friday night :hmm: )

Nowadays it's mostly just the midday meal. Some days i go with nothing then gorge on the feast

That's...oddly precise.

I guess OT. Maybe others have food allergies too. Mine are weird. Egg, wheat/rye regarding celiac disease and any kind of squash. Gluten is odd for me. Beer is perfectly fine but any kind of solid food (bread) will not work itself out of me for a while. Last time with blood. :?

Another one, lastly I don't deal with apples as they give me the runs - I never have been so violently ill after drinking hard cider
