Snacking while eGulleting...(Part 1)


Recommended Posts

Uncharacteristically, nothing.  It's too bloody hot* . . . 

Cold mango. And it is bloody hot.

Thanks for reassuring me I'm not exaggerating about the weather, mcdowell. I was beginning to think I'd gone crazy with the heat!! :wacko:

Cold mango sounds infinitely appealing right about now . . .

A pre-prandial nosh of picante Spanish chorizo and Mancheco cheese.

I had to look up prandial. Thanks X :blink:

Right now eating gravlax made with the usual mix of sugar/salt/pepper/lemon juice, but it was brushed with Tequila and coated in crushed cilantro before being wrapped and put up to cure. Very southwestern (and inspired by a suggestion in the CIA Garde Manger book).

Wild salmon was on sale at Whole Foods last week, and I can't resist a sale :biggrin:

Inauthentic quasi-paella. Specifically 'vegan paella' from the hot deli at the new (to me) natural foods store, improved with shrimp/scallops/calamari and some smoked paprika. With the last of the gift bottle of white bordeaux.

Edit to add now motchi. For the first time ever. Mango. Bigger than I expected. Always nice. Didn't know about the strange marshmallow coating.

Better Made Special Hot! Hot! Red Hot! Barbeque potato chips.

My absolute favorite, even if they do turn my fingers red and make my mouth burn. Made right here in Detroit, thank you very much.

They don't sell them in bags larger than 4oz, unfortunately. Or maybe that's good, since I've been known to eat an entire 4oz bag in one sitting... :unsure::huh:

Went out to the garden an hour ago and dug a few potatoes, picked some kohlrabi and few green beans. Threw 'em in a pot with some chicken stock I made last night, added a big onion, celery and some bacon. Boiled it til the taters and 'rabis were tender, and I am right now burning my tongue cuz I can't wait for it to cool.
