  1. 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. :rolleyes:

  2. My ex boyfriend once ate his chicken fingers with his plate on his LAP in a lobster restaurant in Maine because we were spraying goop all over the place. How do eat a steamed lobster without spraying????


    Tracey, I think the dealbreaker for me would be when he ordered chicken fingers instead of lobster at a lobser restaurant in Maine!!

  3. Ya gotta love a man with a good fart story!!

    :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:  :blink:

    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. :raz:

  4. 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. :sad:

  5. 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!! :laugh: 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. :rolleyes:

  6. 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.
