Is it safe to compost?

Potato chips made with newly acquired Mastrad microwave chip maker.  It was 2 dollars at the thrift shop.  I could not resist.  Served with guacamole and blue cheese.

So how were the chips?

 

Good.  Very different from the commercial chips.  You basically taste the potatoes and nothing else.  Perfect for strong tasting cheese and guacamole.

Last evening my very talented granddaughter brought me this plate of tiny nori-wrapped smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber bites.

I was wondering something the other day as I was perusing eG and noshing.  Is there anywhere else in the world besides the Southern US that a sleeve of saltines and a stick of butter constitutes a reasonable snack?  This and @racheld's "things in dishes" are the items that come out when house guests arrive in the wee hours or when card games go on and on.  @caroled?

It is to me, though I've certainly received my share of odd looks.

At the end of the day a cracker is nothing more than a crisp flatbread, and why should anyone think it odd to put butter on bread?

That takes me back - when we were kids, mom used to give us buttered saltines for a snack all the time.

as a 3 or 4 year old it was Ritz with a dab of Miracle Whip and a piece of blue cheese.   I was … and still am … a bit weird.🤪

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Are you suggesting that a whole sleeve and a whole stick is a snack for one?  Growing up we had saltines around for one reason, which is pretty weird: my mother used to eat saltines alongside chocolate ice cream. For years I never even thought about saltines, but then 32 years ago when I was pregnant it was the only thing I could eat. Now I'm rather fond of them, with or without butter. Unsalted butter, that would be. Last year I convinced my husband to MAKE saltines. They were pretty good the first day, but became completely stale overnight. Clearly what comes in a sleeve should stay in a sleeve.

No, not a whole sleeve and a whole stick.  Just that a sleeve of crackers, a knife and a butter dish on a table makes a fairly complete snack for me that goes back as far as I can remember.

A whole sleeve and whole stick is no longer a snack, it's a "light lunch." :P

I grew up slathering butter (margarine, really) on saltines as a snack. Sometime in my adulthood when I started thinking about fat, I stopped - but really, it isn't very different than cheese on crackers! I may have to try some today. Mmm.
