  1. @Shelby I am absolutely craving that prosciutto wrapped melon. My best friends father eats it all summer long. I wonder if I went to visit him and not my parents (they live on the same street) if I could get away with it!

  2. Sprite is also an occasional treat for me but non diet. Diet rootbeer, especially Stewart’s is a treat too. 

    I figure my affection for diet ginger ale cannot be as bad for me as the 60 plus ounces of Diet Coke I’d guzzle constantly in lieu of food when I worked in Manhattan. Then again I was 100lbs so I wouldn’t mind being that size again. I just can’t do caffeine anymore. 

  3. A club sandwich as far as I care can be on anything. A croissant sounds delicious! 


    Whike I object to the cheese, to each their own.

  4. I went on a “date” tonight without someone I had met before. 
      We had the “burger bites” which were mini burgers with arugula, goat cheese and spicy Mayo with waffle fries as a bun. Delicious!

  5. Hanger steak is delicious. It’s also a popular one at my butcher who does it in a great marinade. I have one in my freezer but am clueless as to use my big green egg.

  6. I live in outside of a highly populated town and Whole Foods delivery to me has never been available. And I’m fine with that. I use Instacart and get Wegmans, Kings (a high end grocery store), ShopRite and Aldi as well as Petsmart, Sephora and Big Lots to name a few. I’ve always found WF to be too limited for me to complete an order. 

     Ironically I have two WF stores within 3 miles of my home so should I ever get the urge I can simply go there. I don’t feel like I’m missing out.

     I was a little concerned that they were going to be tough and bouncy like the ones that are in Spaghetti-O’s.  


    Memories   :)

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

    Sounds good to me.


    It really was. I used the microwave method. I have two more ears and am trying to go to bed versus making another!

    I have no plans but now I want a hot dog. It's been a couple years at least.

    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.

    I grew up on Monterey Bay.   My father loved to go clamming.    We would bring home a bucket of clams, chuck them, cut them into morsels (these were big, 6" wide shells), and make New England style chowder, simply clams, their liquid, onions, potatoes, milk.    Never herbs.   Good eating.    I also was fed raw clams on the beach with lemon and Worcestershire.    Until my peers said, "eeeeeuuuuuuu!"  and I stopped.  

      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.

  12. 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.

    @rotuts M of E is pretty popular down here. WaWa,  Rolling Rock (which nobody not in Jr High drinks) and Yeungling (which we all drink) mentions go a long way.

    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.
