  1. This might have been posted here before, so pardon me if I am repeating -- have you ever seen the blog called, "Steve, Don't Eat It"? I peed laughing at the weird stuff here -- http://www.thesneeze.com/steve-dont-eat-it/
  2. I once ordered "broo-SKEH-tah" only to have the waiter kindly 'correct' me, saying, "Oh, you'd like the broo-SHE-tah?" Also, I once asked for corn "tor-TEE-yas" with my meal, and the young lady said, "Sure, I'll bring you tor-TILL-as." No lie. Never heard it pronounced that way before or since. I don't mind being corrected when I actually am wrong, though.
  3. Gazpacho, baby, gazpacho. That's all I want right now.
  4. How about Bugles? With clam dip, because Bugles make such nice, greasy little scoops.
  5. Yesterday I bought Godiva's milk chocolate penuche nut ice cream, and I didn't like it much. Then I sprinkled it with table salt. Oh, my god! Now I'm a salted chocolate ice cream whore.
  6. Tim, I'm on the South Shore and I would love to try your new place too, so do let us know. Good luck -- I expect your new job will be much more satisfying.
  7. Tracey, I think the dealbreaker for me would be when he ordered chicken fingers instead of lobster at a lobser restaurant in Maine!!
  8. No shit? I have to change my tactics. ← But then, I'm one of the few women who like the Three Stooges.... And of course, my favorite Three Stooges episode is the one where Curly does battle with the bowl of oyster soup. No farts in that one, but that wouldn't have been allowed back then.
  9. Heee, Fresser, my Cape Cod born-and-raised Auntie Mary is the original Mrs. Malaprop. My favorite of hers went something like this: "I only shop at the Co-Op now, because I read a book that said you should only buy orgasmic food."
  10. Ya gotta love a man with a good fart story!!
  11. I recounted this one at the "worst meal at someone's home" thread, but it bears repeating here. One dish I had at my cousin's house at Easter this year was "macaroni salad", and it was two ingredients. Macaroni and "Miracle Whip." Nuff said?
  12. According to this article, Michael's restaurant will open in Las Vegas in 2007... and Ralph now has a deli in Sag Harbor, NY called "Fat Ralph's." http://www.calgarysun.com/perl-bin/niveau2...=97913.html&a=1
  13. Normally, I don't like Dairy Queen at all, but I just discovered something great there for those of us PMSing -- it's called a Pecan Medslide sundae. Vanilla ice cream, hot caramel, hot fudge, and lotsa pecans. SALTY pecans, whipped cream too. I felt a lot better after eating that.
  14. I never liked barbecue (I know some of you are horrified at this!), but then I'm from New England. It wasn't until I was in grad school in Arkansas that I learned what barbecue really was. The city: West Memphis, AR (the other side of the Mississippi from Memphis, TN) The place: Willie Mae's Rib Haus The ribs: Pork, meat falling off the bone, ooooooh.... But now I'm back in New England, and I don't know when I'll get real barbecue again.
  15. All I can say is, don't go to Whole Paycheck on Friday night right after work when you haven't had dinner yet.... OTOH, the $22/lb prosciutto was really fabulous...
  16. One I've heard about a number of times now -- and thank God no one has ever served it to me -- is the lasagna with cottage cheese substituted for ricotta. Gak.
  17. I've heard of a "clam crawl" that was organized on a different board, and it sounded great -- but I have no idea how to organize these things. Holly? Anyone?
  18. Wendy, what were the bees? I just love those bees! And I have to add profuse thanks for a truly fabulous blog. Bonnie
  19. ROFL!! I have a co-worker like that right now -- she comes in through the back door, noisily, so everyone will notice when she's on time. She comes in through the front door, quietly, so 'only' us secretaries will notice when she's late. Doesn't really work -- everyone's looking out for her now.
  20. What, nobody else has a bad Easter dinner story to tell? For some reason that I can't figure out, my family perpetuates a myth that my cousin is a great cook. This is what she served us for Easter yesterday: Turkey -- way, way overcooked, dry and stringy. Easily the worst turkey I've ever had. Ham -- don't know what kind, but it was super-salty and inedible. Some kind of potato casserole, baked with onions and cream in it and Kellogg's Corn Flakes on top! This was the best of the meal, though -- Vegetables -- broccoli, corn, carrots, all seemed to have come out of cans. Weirdly colored and strangley flavored -- does broccoli come in cans?! And the worst of all -- macaroni salad. This seemed to be macaroni, Miracle Whip, dumped in a bowl then sprinkled with paprika. I kept eating it though, because I couldn't beleive it was so bad!! I just can't figure out when anyone would serve it. But they're all good people and we had a good time. It was too late to cook by the time we got home, so I just heated up a Trader Joe's vegetable pizza and was a lot happier, food-wise, last night.
  21. OMG, thanks for making me spit coffee all over the place. The Bad Candy website is killing me, esp. the review of "Saltidos". "Just how I like my lumps: Brown and salty."
  22. Tamiam, I saw the pumpkin butter in my local TJs this evening (Boston area). BTW, what do you do with pumpkin butter? And, two of my own TJs addictions: the dark chocolate covered pretzels -- fabulous when pre-menstrual, heehee! -- and the have-to-eat-the-whole-bag-in-one-sitting toasted coconut cashews. Un-be-fucking-leivable.
  23. Those toasted coconut cashews from Trader Joe's -- OH MY GOD. Had to fight my Mum to get at 'em.
  24. I just saw this one at the supermarket yesterday and couldn't believe my eyes -- Mott's thinks they can get kids to eat applesauce by putting POP ROCKS in it?! Check it out here-- http://www.mottsproducts.com/promotions/
