Recommended Posts

And when you finish it, are you rewarded with a chocolate Arc de  Triomphe?  That is classy snacking!

As iverywun sensubul noes, the word c*rn  should only ever be used as a verb and even then, only in the sense below.

 

Quote

II. 3.II.3 trans. To sprinkle with salt in grains; to season, pickle, or preserve with salt; to salt.

 

Today, I picked these up.

Salt preserved quail eggs. Despite the Japanese on the packaging, the small print indicates they are processed in Hunan, China.  The company selling them is Japanese, though.

 

Spicy hot, but delicious.

 

ETA: Despite being fully aware of the meaning intended, I did check the list of ingredients carefully, to make sure they hadn't sneaked some c*rn in. They often do! It's a communist plot!

Where's the Awesome button and where do I buy a chocolate Tour de Eiffel? other than in France?

 

Our next door neighbour gave us each one.  She was recently in Brussels and I suppose she may have gone to France while there.

That would be nice.  It's a wider building so more chocolate!

 I posted a plain version of these here a few weeks back, but when I went shopping yesterday, I found these.

Not as spicy as my jaded taste buds would have preferred, but certainly spicier than the not spicy variety.

 

So, I'm all set for an afternoon of eGulleteering while snacking.

I finally got to a store that sells Asian baked goods and I picked up one Portugese egg tart and one Hong Kong egg tart.  I cut each one in half and we shared them.  We both much preferred the Portugese one, we found the Hong Kong one too eggy.

Nice Sunday afternoon Bloddy Mary.  The snack part is the big fat pickled asparagus spear.
