Snacking while eGulleting... (Part 3)

Could very well be.

 

There are a few Central American places too.  If you head West just past Dufferin, in one strip plaza is a good Vietnamese place and an even better El Salvadorian places (their papusas and coleslaw are awesome!) - and if you like Baklava - an excellent pastry shop - very diverse plaza!  But then again, such is our wonderful GTA.

 

 

True that - just wish it was easier to get around in quickly like it used to be when I was a child. If I'm heading there prime time - I need to allow 2 hours to get anywhere.

OK... anyone with a delicate stomach and sensibilities turn away.  A piece of rustic rye bread smeared with some blue cheese then heated for about 30 seconds in the microwave then topped with the last of the sour cherry jam.

I don't see a doggoned thing wrong with that. Though I might have toasted the bread and foregone heating the cheese.

One of our neighbours makes a very tasty beef jerky. He's in his 80's, but still makes it regularly and gifts it to the people around him. I made him a quilt in return and still feel like i got the better deal! He just dropped this off today:

I may have to prompt my dad to make jerky again though his wife would freak at the bit of mess in the oven. As a classically trained sausage maker he was great with seasoning. I still remmember that smell as it was in the super low oven overnight. He is 96 so I guess time is "a-wasting".

 No photograph because there’s nothing left to photograph unless you consider the sheepish look on my face as photo worthy. I was slicing a baguette to freeze and decided that the ends would make great croutons to freeze for later use. I cut the bread into small cubes and slowly browned it in some oil with the only seasoning being salt and pepper. As a required quality control measure I tried one ..........

Currently snacking on Blue Diamond Wasabi & Soy Sauce almonds.

It's a test of my restraint. I could eat the entire can in one sitting...but won't. :P :laugh:

 Thanks to the most accomplished and unconscionable enabler, @Kerry Beal,  I am enjoying these.

Is this a flavoured rice cracker of some sort?

I was going to eat an apple but the two apples in my fruit bowl were looking a little long in the tooth when I inspected them. So

 Not being much of a fan of Cheezies I have no idea why I picked these up.  Now there are two things I’m not a fan of!  These are faintly reminiscent of cheese and strongly reminiscent of some chemical that I can’t identify. I will pass them along to my adult son if he wants them!

Mini potato skins (using new potatoes) with sharp cheddar and Mexican Chorizo. Breville Air fryer.

Maybe a little salsa would be nice.

Well, it’s actually what  Russians call творог.  It is labeled Farmers cheese in Russian grocery stores in the US.  You boil milk, this time it was 1/2 lifer, add same amount of cold buttermilk as soon as milk comes to boil, drain it well.  It tastes like ricotta, may be a little more tart.

Chilli Snickers.

I bought these more out of curiosity than expectation. But they ain't too  bad.

Are these widely available? Anyone tried them?
