  1. Are those prices in USD? $24 for a six pack is outrageous! A resort I stayed in in Jamaica had tons of peacocks. They’re gorgeous but can be loud and not particularly friendly.

    @Kim Shook I’ve used those before and they’re good. I used them for fondue.

    No lie I had spaghetti-o’s for dinner last night. Revoke my “foodie” (I hate that word) card, I know it’s gross.

    Can you tell me more about the cukes?
  5. It really was. I used the microwave method. I have two more ears and am trying to go to bed versus making another!
  6. Dinner was an ear of fresh Jersey corn. It was really good considering it’s a bit early in the season.
  7. Same. Although I don’t have buns. White bread could work. I like to “boil” hot dogs from frozen in a pan with a NJT of water then let them “caramelize” for lack of a better term. But I don’t even know if I have hotdogs. I haven’t properly cooked in over three months. ETA: boil is probably the wrong word. Steam is more like it. NJ has some great hotdog manufacturers.
  8. I’d love to try those peanuts. But I can’t handle spicy foods.
  9. Personally I was a borderline obnoxiously picky child. As an adult there is very little I won’t try. If I don’t like it, I’m not going to force myself into liking said foods (ie: foie gras). But I will try almost everything.
  10. That sounds delicious. My father got me hooked on raw clams at age 4. Love them to this day, especially the cherry stone and little necks we get out East.
  11. Sweet beans in some type of syrupy looking sauce just don’t appeal to me. I was eating raw clams at age 5. I just don’t think you can generalize American cuisine as it is really specific to the region one lives in. I mean I’d say Taylor ham and disco fries but those are Jersey things.

    Now I *really* want a baked potato by Jo. With lots of butter.
  13. Is this more of an era issue versus a mistaken opinion? I’m genuinely curious. My parents weren’t alive during WW2 so I have no clue about what was rationed on the east coast of the US. I never found British food to be bland during my visits there although at times I did avoid beef.

    THANK YOU. I recently met someone who, as a middle aged adult claims Rolling Rock to be their favorite beer. I’d rather drink bud lite. RR was the first beer I ever tried so it’s shocking I actually enjoy beer. I probably wouldn’t even use RR to cook with. I do love Yeungling though.
  15. I always did the same!! 😂

    If you’re accepting friend requests let me know 😂 that all sounds delicious.

    Does your source ship?
  18. I wouldn’t pay that much for a vegan meal.
  19. No idea why this popped in my mind during a discussion tonight. I have never used the green can. My mother is half Italian and she lets me down at times buying shaved parm but I love cheese so I spend it on the real parm reggiano. Salty sharp and perfect with some butter and loads of fresh pepper.

    I’m sick and stuck in bed but I REALLY want this!
  21. Does anyone want mine? Never opened in the box.

    That looks SO good to me!
  23. Enjoy everyone. I can’t stand it. Ironically my birthday is St. Patrick’s Day and my paternal family is 100% Irish. I’m definitely going to indulge in seafood or Asian food or both!
