Day 178 - A Poutine Compromise
For those who don't know, poutine is a traditional Quebecois fast food meal. Although there are many variations, the original consists of french fries, cheese curds and gravy (poutine sauce). Some people like to have it with spaghetti sauce, peas or sausages (yuck). I've been craving one for awhile but the high fat content has kept me at bay. Peg offered to make a homemade version. She bakes, not fries, the potatoes with the skins so less fat and more fibre. We picked up the cheese at the grocery store along with a package of sauce. Although the sauce was St. Hubert's instead of Ashton's it was still good. Overall, I'd give this version an A+. It's just as yummy and has a lot less fat. Still not a meal to ingest regularly but a compromise when the craving hits.
