Fresh mozzarella, Rao’s pizza sauce, pepperoni, basil.  For size perspective, that’s a salad plate.

A serviceable vehicle for pizza toppings and easy to use. 😁

I really like Dave’s bread.  Mr. Kim balked at the price and I stopped buying it.  He almost never does that, so I just let him have his way this time 😉.  I know a lot of folks – even American folks – find supermarket bread in the US very sweet.  I’ve never noticed it especially.  Or maybe I like it.  Not sure.  I don’t have the most sophisticated palate.  I can say that I normally don’t care for whole wheat bread, which I find bitter, so maybe I’m reacting positively to the sweet flavor in some supermarket breads without realizing it. 

 

Mr. Kim was off on Friday, so we drove up to Fredericksburg.  We had lunch at the 2400 Diner:

I had the Gyro Platter:

IMG_5925.jpg.0842b96c76f71987a00c943fd69a9acd.jpg

Fries, meat, salad, pita, and tzatziki.  So good.  And tons of meat slices.  Mr. Kim had the Greek omelet and fruit:

IMG_5926.jpg.43a12f400ea04396d3564e9138c408aa.jpg

Feta, olives, tomatoes, onions:

Yesterday drove up to Northern VA to pick up a couple of bookshelves from a store and stopped for lunch on the way back at the well-known and beloved Allman’s BBQ in Fredericksburg:

IMG_5949.jpg.3aa76477cd6c89ec49f11545b071e08f.jpg

It was fine.  Not outstanding.  The leftovers will taste better with some Short Sugar’s (NC) sauce 😁.

Dave’s is discounted at several chains.   You might check out a Kroger.

a little OT , but :

 

Daves 21 grain was 3.99   and today I got a Dave' PowerSeed  $.5.99

 

@ MarketBasket   , which generally has lower prices.

 

the PowerSeed has 1 gm added sugar , the 21 grain , 5 gm

 

its possible i misread the price of the 21 grain .

 

the 21 grain was very nice fresh for a sandwich.  I didn't have to work at all

 

adding some honey to my dijon for a honey mustard.  dave did all the work for me !

 

10 grms of added sugar , esp if fructose , is a lot for a sandwich.

 

Ill check the price again next time.   toasting 21 grain in the CSO  made for a nice

 

slice of toast.  the toasting improved the grains and seeds.  the slices stuck

 

to the CSO rack , im guessing , from the sugar.   the power seed did not stick

 

wonder if ti work a thread on WholeGrain american sandwich style bread ?

I belong to a British Expat Food Group on FB.  Not because I'm British or an expat, but I love Britain and lots of British foods.  Yesterday a bunch of them were trashing American Cheese - Velveeta in particular.  So I had no choice but to have this for lunch:

IMG_5968.thumb.jpg.28a91df78671bcc3c5caad4ef35280af.jpg

🤣🤣🤣With these supposedly mild Jamaican patties:

A tad too spicy, but nicer than my usual brand.

@Kim Shook, I grew up eating (and liking) Velveeta. Have you noticed any change in the flavor? IMO, it's different now. I used to make stovetop mac and cheese with it and it's just not the same, IMO.

 

To stay on topic, your Jamaican patties look good. Haven't had a chance to try them yet.

I agree with you.  I used to like an easy stove top mac n cheese made with just Velveeta.  Now, I add a little hot sauce and shredded Cheddar to it.  I still use the Velveeta because I like the creaminess.

It's rhubarb time.

There's chocolate in the filling. The 99% Lindt is for me.

Cheese-rhubarb paste ratio

I added some SV beetroot to the rhubarb mush

I used Edelmont in the toasties. My brain decided to ignore the word 'cumin' on the Munster but the Munster is too pungent so there's no point, really. I don't need any cumin  in my food.

More soft and runny cheese.

We have nasty autumn-like weather 10 months a year.

Have been cleaning out freezer, fridge, and pantry. So I won't feel guilty buying new food.

 

Corkscrew pasta, frozen peas, grated Parmesan cheese.

@BonVivant – those rhubarb/chocolate rolled up thingies are so gorgeous that I’m sure they must also be delicious!

 

Sir Patrick Stewart recently spoke of his affection for beans on toast.  I share his taste in toast toppings:

Today:

Leftover marinara and mozz tossed with some hot angel hair pasta.

Is the malt vinegar for the beans? Beans on toast or bean sandwiches on untoasted bread where what we had on the odd night that my Dad had to cook. (We won't speak of the meatballs in gravy that came out of a can ...)I've never seen vinegar on beans though. Funny because I always add vinegar to bean soup or chili with beans.

Yep.  For the beans.  I don't know about other folks, but my English stepdad and sisters always used malt vinegar on beans.

I've never see that before, beans on toast. How did you cook the beans? British food is (in)famous for being unseasoned...

When I have beans on toast, I am still an American 😄.  Meaning that I don't use unseasoned, vegetarian Heinz beans.  I prefer something with a little pork - like Van De Kamps, which are tomatoey, but not really highly flavored.  These were leftovers, so they were more "fixed up" - BBQ sauce, onions, garlic, mustard.

I have never heard of the practice.

Who told you that? It is nonsense.

If anything, British food tends to be over-seasoned.
