Somewhere between a nice blonde colored chicken and rich brown beef. Freaking TASTY (the secret? Re-roast the bones before they go into the stock pot, just enough to get some good browning. Trust me, it's wonderful!) and works well either as a straight flour based gravy, or, if you wish, add some sour cream to make a heavenly smooth creamy gravy. Drooling at the thought, right now...

And, since my wife and both kids are lactose intolerant and one kid and the wife can't have gluten, I've been relearning how to cook, pretty much from the ground up. And comfort dishes like this end up being put to the side for once every few months now.

Man, I need to find a good supplier of cheese curds...
I live about a mile away from a cheese factory in Wilton Ontario... I seriously cannot imagine life without fresh curds. I feel your pain...

You still owe us a visit to come get some poutine! Montreal would be the best most likely, but other cities might have some good stuff.

There is a Poutinerie here in town that I have not checked out...I'll have to see if they have the real curds.

Dude, mention donaire in Maine. The blank stares are freaking epic.

For the most part, southern Maine is aware of what good foods are a thing that don't absolutely HAVE to involve potatoes or lobster . . . Northern, where I grew up? not so much.

But yes, cheese curds are a rarity here. You can't even mention squeeky cheese without baffled looks. A bunch of savages.

Only on HWC can you ever find a poutine thread. Poutine. 22 pages of pure poutine education.

I see your Jeep parked next door. Would have been weird I guess if the Googlemobile didn't get it :)

Might be driving to NF this summer....a poutine stop might be in the cards!
