    Im on a sea food diet.
    I see food i eat it. Works great! <g>

    Understood. Works most of the time.

    Luckily or unluckily, some food is better than others.

    This isn't:

    cat: main, potatoes, onions, left-over meat
    Serves: 4

    2 oz beef dripping (sunflower oil may be substituted)
    2 md onion, finely chopped
    4 Tb good gravy (water may be substituted)
    2 lb peeled and roughly sliced potatoes
    leftover roast beef, chopped
    salt & pepper
    parsley, chopped

    In the past when money and food were in short supply Scots knew how
    to make the most of their meagre resources. Stovies are a good example
    of a peasant dish that combined any leftover meat with plenty of
    potatoes, the mainstay of the crofter diet in the last century. Being
    mainly potato it provided energy in the form of starch and bulk to
    fill empty stomachs. Despite the dishes "poor" origins it is very
    tasty, filling and often served with oatcakes at ceilidhs (country
    dances) and evening wedding receptions.

    Wilt the onions in the dripping. Add the potatoes and mix well.
    Cover the pot and cook for 10 min, stirring occasionally to
    prevent sticking. The gravy, meat, salt, and pepper should now
    be mixed in. Again cover the pot and cook slowly until the thin
    potatoes are mushy and the thicker cut ones soft - an hour should
    be sufficient (this part of the cooking can be done in a Pyrex
    dish in the oven, which will give a delightfully browned and
    crunchy topping). The dish should be garnished with the parsley
    and served with oatcakes and a glass of milk.
