watching on tv land and when Andy got home, Malcolm asked him if the would like some supper, he had a lovel bubble and squeak ready...thanks to the internet, I now know what that is.  (Andy had something in town, so he didn't try it.

Bubble and squeak is a traditional English dish made with the shallow-fried leftover vegetables from a roast dinner. The main ingredients are potato and cabbage, but carrots, peas, Brussels sprouts, or any other leftover vegetables can be added. The chopped vegetables (and cold chopped meat if used) are fried in a pan together with mashed potatoes or crushed roast potatoes until the mixture is well-cooked and brown on the sides. The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling and squeaking sounds during the cooking process.[1] It is often served with cold meat from the Sunday roast, and pickles or brown sauce, or as an accompaniment to a full English breakfast.

You're not from around here are you?  

  Actually   I love great gobs of comfort food like this.  I also wouldn't mind some toad-in-the hole, right now, or maybe some shepherd's pie now that the weather is cooling down.

Since it's sometimes served with pickles, I wonder if Malcolm ever asked Bee if she had any.

Yesterday’s Jeopardy had a category headed __________&_________.  The $2000 “answer” was, you guessed it, Bubble & Squeak.  And, one of the contestants got it.

 I wonder if the Darlings came over for dinner during a Malcolm visit if they’d yell BUBBLE AND SQUEAK! when they needed more.

This worked well in the Taylor household - Aunt Bee loved making pot roast and at times had hundreds of pounds on hand. 

Okay. I thought it was called bubble and squeak for another reason.

Mrs. M...speaking of comfort food:  My husband's aunt used to call whatever she made out of leftovers or the odd bits of stuff she found in the frig or pantry, "slumgulleon".  It was always good and we sure felt comforted after we ate a big mess of it.  I never did know where she got the name, though.

BTW, my grandmother always called "enough of something to make a meal" "a mess".  As in, "I caught a mess of fish and Mama's cooking them for supper."  Or, "If you'll pick me a mess of turnip greens I'll cook them for dinner."

We lived in Middle Tennessee and she was originally from Western Kentucky.  Guess that's how they talk when they ain't from around here....
