    Here in the UK biscuits are thin and crispy, cookies are thicker with a soft centre. Chips are usually chunky and fries are thin. Never heard of bagsy for shotgun, it could be slang.

    Yes, it was a slang website. Ohhh, chips might be what we call steak fries.
    We just got in from shoveling. My granddaughter actually did the city sidewalk as well. She didn't want to have to salt. So I salted all of it and, of course, we need more salt! There isn't enough for the next shoveling. But, we may have another snow day, if it keeps up.
    I forgot I was going to say what she's making for dinner. It's her usual noodle dish with tomatoes and feta cheese that Daniel had earlier in this thread.

    Roast beef with all the veg and gravy.
    Pudding was apple, rhubarb and blackberry crumble with ice cream.
    Apart from the apples the other fruit is home grown, didn't have any apples this year.

    We're having tortilla soup. I might make some bread as well.

    This pudding is a crêpe filled with tiramisu ice cream and a full dollop of melted chocolate over it all.

    That looks really good. It reminds me, when I was younger we went to a restaurant and I ordered an eclair for dessert. When it came it was a cream puff stuffed with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce over it. I could do that only with my blinli, I've never made a crepe, but I heard they're just a little thicker then a blinli.

    I do not know what a blinli is Willow. Please tell more.
    We actually call crêpes, flensjes but I did not think you would know what a flensje was. It does remotely sound like your word, blinli. I have an active imagination.

    I guess the best way to describe it is it's a Russian crepe. My granddaughter's best friend in Washington came there from Ukraine in 2016, the year before we moved back in 2017. Her mom taught me how to make them. She was taking ESL(English as a second language) classes so I helped her with that and she taught me Russian and how to make different things. Blinli was one of them. Every morning she and her daughter would stop and pick my granddaughter and me up and we'd walk to the bus stop together. Sometimes she'd be on the phone with her mom, who didn't make it out. They were able to get out because she won the lottery so they only had to pay for her husband. I think their daughter was young enough they didn't have to pay for her. They've since, both gotten their US citizenship.

    We had something like that a couple nights ago. My grand didn't want what I was going to make, so she asked me how I make my homemade chicken nuggets, and she made that. I cut up some potatoes, from the garden and dropped them in the cast iron skillet, sprinkled olive and salt on them then put the whole thing g in the oven.

    That's good, i cook it all in the oven as well but they're already prepared. I cook the chicken first, then we walk the boys and then i cook the chips, baked beans are out of a can and just heat those up.

    Boursin omelet sandwich on grilled sourdough.

    The eggs are blended in a hand held food processor to make a light tender omelet. Bread is buttered and grilled on griddle. Pan is sprayed with some oil spray for non-stick, the butter melted on low to medium heat. Eggs added, then cook until just barely firm. Add small chunks of Boursin cheese all over the egg, then fold the sides in for a multi-layered, square, almost flat omelet.

    Then make the sandwich, just the bread and the omelet.

    I like this sandwich a lot. Paired with a bowl of tomato soup.
