the ancient mariner
Ileechef————-Your post saying that roast chicken and a great salad would suit you fine reminds me of a gentleman I met years ago. His name James Beard. He was often invited to dinner at people’s homes where they would try to out-do one another with the fanciest foods available. He said to me that if he was ever invited by me I should have ham and cabbage and boiled potatoes. Knowing i am Irish might have something to do with his choice. I never got him to my house though, so he missed out on my New England boiled dinner———–washed down with a Guinness or two.
By the way–both Julia Child and Jacques Pepin both claimed that roast chicken was their favorite,also.
