  1. Peter, Mr. Green, I'm addicted to this thread! Please keep writing! Write a book or travel guide or something! You're sense of humor along with fascinating pictures have me coming back for more everyday.
  2. Better yet, can I have it??? It's my favorite pie!
  3. I really enjoyed your food/travel blog. You have an interesting sense of humor. Please write some more!
  4. I always think of what I would cook, even though I know I would never hold my own in something like this. If I was doing this, I'd take some of my Thanksgiving guilty pleasures from childhood and played with them. Like somehow take turkey skin and fry it into a cone. Stuff it with a cornbread oyster dressing and a dollop of fresh cranberry sauce on top (or if I ever knew how to make that fake caviar from El Bulli--do that with cranberries). Serve it like a sushi hand roll/ice cream cone. Man, I wonder what that would taste like. ← Sorry, I forgot the quotes. I'm available for tasting!

  6. Last season, Tiffany, Harold and Louanne (?) appealed to me immediately. Harold seemed polished and honest as a judge and is easy on the eyes as well. ←
  7. Rightly so! And what's up with giving me a fork when I have pie ala mode? You can't eat ice cream with a fork!
  8. Torakris, Do you eat in sequence too? I have to eat in food sequence. For instance a standard turkey dinner - a bite of turkey, a smidge of mashed potatoes, a bit of cranberry, topped off by a nugget of stuffing. Repeat until all the food is gone. ← Oh my God! Isn't that how everyone eats??? Is there a different way? ← I've know people to eat all the meat first, starch second, and vegetable third, or any such combination. I really don't like to actually look upon this type of eating since I makes me shudder. A friend of mine used to finish the meal by eating all the coleslaw. Makes me swoon just thinking about it.

  10. Very nice!! Thanx for the pix.
  11. I agree, and in fact, it's lists like these that make people think that all "foodies" are rich snobs, which is not the case at all. ← I'm with you guys too! Can't one appreciate good food and not be a millionaire? Is this another means used to separate and segregate people? Sheesh, we need to ban together in good food, not build walls of food segregation!!
  12. It's that rhetorical drive to assert something is "the best" that's at work here. I don't quite know how it works, but why do we need to say that some kind of food or a particular dish is "the best" at all? It's unprovable, of course. ← I've thought that for years, especially with something as subjective as food where everyone has their own personal standard
  13. I've noticed the women here all crave salt. Could it be that the painful cramps that women endure are caused by low sodium content in their blood? ←
  14. I've made brownies with peanut butter frosting. Yummmmmmmmmm!
  15. Butter, milk or cream, brown or white sugar. Raisins if available.
  16. Gee, I'm from Jersey too (the shore) and I've never heard of them. I don't really like gravy on anything, but the cheese sounds pretty good!
  17. Hell, I'd eat it, but then again I'm a sucker for a dessert. How about if you keep the cakes intact until you reach your destination and then make a trifle? Layer the cake with alternate layers of whipped cream and maybe some almonds in the nice clear bowl to show off the pretty colors.
  18. And don't drown it in soy and wasabi, you're trying to figure out if you like the fish! ←

    Pork Orgy

    I usually sear my pork chops in a really hot frying pan for a minute or so, until they are browned. Once browned take them out of the pan and reduce the heat. Stir in some liquid (I've used beer and/or apple, juice) but use whatever you like. Deglaze the pan's stirring up the browned bits into the juice. Turn the heat back up and reduce by at least half. Put the browned chops back in the liquid, reducing the heat again. Let them simmer for about 5-10 or until tender. It makes a silky smooth sauce that looks like gravy, but without the gravy mouth feel.
  20. What's left? Ground beef and some sour cream?
  21. Sorry Iris, no dis intended, but at a picnic, in a park with decent facilities handy, when you're wearing shorts and a tee shirt? Pompous! (thanks for the spell check, though!) ← Hamburgers (unless their really thick and runny), hot dogs, corn-on-the-cob. I'll do with the hands. I really don't like to eat ribs with my fingers because I hate sauce under my nails. At a picnic in the park with my family we know to bring plenty of knives and forks because I'm not the only neatnik!
  22. I like to use a knife and fork for most things only because I don't like sticky finger and I'm nowhere near pretentious or pompous. Maybe a little nerdy... I do corn on the cob with fingers tho...
