Finally the truth comes out that not only are you guilty of tahini abuse, Tommy, but also you are a hypocrite and a perjurer. Now please get the right product before you waste any more of our time.

Yes but with E-Fu noodles you have to deep-fat-fry them, so it's a godawful mess.

Though you later recanted on bitterness

Objection, counsel is badgering the witness.

Stefany, I'm not sure I understand why tommy should not use sambal. It is a gift from the gods and they would be offended if it were not used.

BTW, tommy, see jon's post above.

Wow Tommy izzat your fridge you have a lot a lot a lot of condiments!

I have never seen this brand of tahini maybe you've unwittingly, as opposed to wittingly, been the butt of a very elaborate practical joke...is that possible, I mean, I'm just askin'.

Teehee Bigbear, only what about I see drunk people, eating RANCID tahini.

And fine taste in mustard, I'll say; I've tried both. The German one on the left is especially good.

A few months ago I was in the mood for cold sesame noodles and I had a brain block on where to find my favorite recipe. I ripped apart my recipe box and my recipe folder and looked through cookbooks at Barnes and Noble. Finally I found it in my old Time-Life book on Chinese cooking. Will post it later when I get home. Calls for sesame seed paste -- I prefer the Lan Chi brand.

Now throw a few eggplants on the grill or roast 'em in a hot oven so you can make Baba Ganouj with all that leftover rancid tahini.

Mrs. Tommy enters the kitchen to find her husband leaning into the fridge taking a picture of himself giving a row of condiments, and possibly a jar of tahini in particular, the finger.

i've been experimenting with tahini lately and i find it to be very powerful--my advice is less is more, maybe. cut back.

I hear you, stellabella. I started off experimenting with tahini, and soon things spiralled out of my control. Lately I've cut back to just two spoonfuls a day, and I'm telling you, it's...it's...difficult.

I quit stone-cold; it's the only way.

and I can see it now, Miss J in a meeting, "my name is Miss J and I have a problem with tahini." :laugh:
