It has been one of those weeks that has required comfort food. I don’t know if it’s a case of the winter blues, cold weather or the fact that it’s my birthday this week and I deserve to indulge just a tad. Do you even really need an excuse to binge on some good old comfort food from time to time? I think not.
When I think of comfort food… I immediately crave poutine. A true Canadian favourite. If you have never tried poutine you just don’t know what your missing.
On Monday night, I whipped up our family favourite – Pulled Pork Poutine. Rather than using traditional straight cut fries. I experimented with Cavendish From The Farm Wedges. Unlike the potato wedges that I would purchase while on break at work during my high school years, the Cavendish From The Farm Potato Wedges are: low in fat, a good source of fiber, cholesterol free, trans fat free, seasoned with sea salt, low in saturated fat, and a good source of potassium. I’m sure the way that we cooked the wedges made them a little more unhealthy. We fried them; the directions suggest baking them.
I certainly don’t buy potato wedges often, but I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase the wedges or any of the other products available on the Cavendish From The Farm line (also includes Rustic Reds and Straight Cut Fries). It’s the perfect side dish to go along with a burger or chicken fingers. Heck – you could enjoy them on their own or try out one of the Cavendish From The Farm recipes.
A couple recipes on the Cavendish Farms website that caught by eye were:
- Potato & Egg Skillet
- Smoked Meat Poutine
- Country Chicken Pot Pie
- Sweet Potato Frites with Cajun Sour Cream Dip
- Real Canadian Superstore
- Shoppers Drug Mart
- WalMart Superstore (various locations)
- Highland Farms
