  1. from my jersey shore childhood: freshly roasted peanuts, overly salted fresh popcorn, caramel apples and candied apples. jersey shore adult days: grilled hot dogs, french fries, steak sandwiches.
  2. Ummmm, excuse me, but what are tofu skin knots? I'm not familiar with the term. Very thin tofu skin, actually tied in knots about 2 inches long. They come like that in the supermarket. Good for soup or for braising, because it holds its shape well. Tissue, Thank you for the response! I was afraid that I was going to be ignored yet again. It sounds like an interesting concept. Can they be fried as well?

  4. That has to be one of the sweetest stories I've ever read. What understanding! How caring! It's nice to hear of such a relationship in a sometimes cold world. I literally have tears in my eyes!
  5. Ghetto mac! I thought that was Detroit-specific. I thought I was the only one. Why is it called ghetto mac?
  6. Kinda like a delayed dinner theater, eh? Yeah - with surround sound. Hahaha! And smell-o-rama!
  7. Terrific article Andy! I enjoyed it immensely! I never realized that there were/are fart performers. I'd be interested in seeing a performance.
  8. I hosted my 40th birthday party at my sister's house, since my apartment is too small. It was no big deal. Everyone had a good time!
  9. I think (and this is just my opinion!) that Date plate is one of the worst ideas I've ever heard of. I've never watched How to marry a millionaire, Joe Millionaire, the Bachelor, or the Bachelorette. Never have, and never will. A hoard of wild monkeys couldn't make me watch. Where's the fun in watching two people go out on a date? The fact that they've added cooking/food to the televised date concept is disgusting. Can't anyone have an original idea any more? Just one more program that I'll be actively avoiding...
  10. I want that hot dog!!! Mmmmmm, looks delish!!

  12. i usually use a plate unless it's such a small amount that i'll be able to finish it in one sitting.
  13. "Curses like a dream" what kind of analogy is that? I don't how I'd take that one. Maybe curses "well" with "aplomb", maybe curses "eloquently" or how about, "The curses roll of his tongue like the smooth purr of a 67 Mustang eight barrell." Sorry, I'm rambling again. Perhaps I should have said creatively curses?
  14. I thought it was funny as hell! Okay, maybe a little campy, but I was actually guffawing at some parts. Plus ya gotta admit he curses like a dream!!
  15. MEAT! MEAT! MEAT! AND MORE MEAT! Flossie the cow just isn't safe around me at that time. Also, salty snack foods like chips, popcorn, pretzels (love those chocolate covered pretzels!), cheese twists. Orange soda. I could drink a 2 liter bottle and just sit and watch my stomach bloat up! It's great stuff. I'm not a big choco-holic tho...
  16. I've asked for a doggy bag at lunch, but never at breakfast. Somehow the egginess of breakfast doesn't (I usually have some sort of egg dish) seem right for a doggy bag.
  17. Lots of cream works really well, too!!! I'm soooo hungry! My sister makes a mean peach cobbler!!
  18. Hmmmm, that sounds good! I've got to try that. I'm always looking for something to jazz up dressing. Have you ever noticed that Southerners say "dressing" and Northerners say "stuffing". I'm usually say dressing even though I'm from the north. Southern relatives I guess.
  19. She used buttermilk and baking powder. I used to pan fry them the next day to soften them up a bit. Or halve them, top with a slice of sharp cheddar and heat in a frying pan until the cheese melts. I miss my mom...
  20. I'm experiencing a definite biscuit/grin fixation! My mom used to make wonderful biscuits, nice and high and flaky. Mmmmmm, they were even good the next day. I, on the other hand, make hocky pucks. Hard, thin, disgusting disks of dough. Sheesh! And another thing why don't northern restaurants offer grits on their menus? I'd like a grit option when I visit my local luncheonette!
  21. It is very noisy, especially at dinner. It's a very visually stimulating dining room.
  22. How about Piccolo Forno on Ocean Ave? It's Italian and could be considered romantic.
  23. No no no. Grits are great. The polenta of America. Wonderful with sauteed collard greens and slabs of ham. Heehee! Sorry I was being facetious about the low brow grit thing...
  24. Argggghhhh! You're killing me! Grits with cheese and hot sauce? I'm definitely there!
