All My Little Ladies Eating Up The Gravy

I had big plans to celebrate American Thanksgiving but I got sidetracked by the thought of homemade poutine.

We went gourmet style, making a rich, shredded beef gravy and using real fries from the fish&chips place on the corner instead of making oven fries.

We invited friends over, one of whom was a poutine virgin, to share in our gluttony.

It was glorious.

  16. Well that's just about one of the happiest things to show up on my screen today :)
    For the veggies out there, there are many options for the gravy... if you are vegan... could be an issue, but we have a variety of poutine in the city - brie and lobster bisque (OMG from Coast...) among many more including from the head chef of coast a trailor set up to sell his wares.
    It's a lovely addiction. Have you tried any of the poutine from the place on Davie where they apparently have 20 different types??? I need a date... ;)
