:laugh: Only 6 minutes have passed between your posts here, and you're already second-guessing your blog!

I guess I would feel the same way... any blog I would produce would be filled with an alarming amount of cereal consumption. (blog of the unemployed) :rolleyes:

Herbicidal, where do you live? I remember moving to PA and always laughing when I went to a WaWa...something about that name :biggrin:. I loved the sandwiches and fresh fruit, though.

Alacarte - WaWa is similar to 7-11, though they don't sell alcohol (have to go to state stores for that). Also yummy deli sandwiches :smile:

I think mine would be pretty dull, too, at least in comparison with most of the previous ones. Feeding a family of four on a serious budget tends to cramp the ol cooking style a wee bit.

similarly unemployed.

just had another medium sized muffin and a chinese pastry translated as wife cake.

wife cake is a circular, fairly flat, yellowish pastry. not sure exactly what it's filled with. possibly lotus, but texture is off for that. it's only the second one i've had in the US, and the fourth I can recall in my lifetime.

anyone know? ling? gary soup?

wawa is a mid-atlantic convenience store chain.

Side note: I hate you all for making me do this.

Like I don't procrastinate enough on this damn site.

plain.

i'm semi pissed at my friend. he was supposed to get married in York, PA, and i was planning to go to the wedding, and bring back loads of potato chips, pretzels, etc. that aren't sold in the Philly area.

he ended up going on a cruise and just getting married there.

Please define what you mean by "the last." My husband's definition is what's ever left in the bag when he gets to it, makes no difference if it's basically a new bag or just the crumbs.. :laugh:

And you can probably buy Utz products on-line if they're not available where you live.

MMmm I love "wife cake". :biggrin:

The filling differs from bakery to bakery. Also called "wintermelon cake" in Chinese and contains pureed wintermelon and sugar, with glutinous rice paste. Here in Canada "wife cake" usually just has the sweet glutinous rice paste...no wintermelon chunkies.

I prefer just the glutinous rice paste.

Your neighbourhood 7-11 sells alcohol? :blink:

Yep - mostly cheap beer and wine coolers. You can also buy alcohol of all sorts in any grocery store - from beer to wine to vodka and everything in between. It was quite a culture shock, the first time I went looking for a bottle of dry sherry in PA and was told to find a state store.

      @Alleguede and I are in the lounge at Pearson awaiting our flight to Vegas for the IBIE (International Baking Industry Exhibition).
       
      I got the usually bomb sniffing swab done on my electronics - @Alleguede got the 3rd degree at customs. Anyone know what a carnet is? I believe I got that lecture the last time.
       

       
      Made myself a little cocktail, Maker's Mark, Grand Marnier, vintage port. I've had better! 
       

       
      Not a lot of choices to eat since it's rather late (not that earlier would have helped) - they also have pasta salad, Italian Wedding soup, Cream of mushroom soup, corn chips and salsa. There appear to be some cookies there as well. I'm trying to low carb as much as possible so I'm avoiding most of it.

      Host's note: the initial title of this thread was "Swarvin' in ???"  as a teaser.  Once the destination was identified as Newfoundland, the title was changed to reflect this.  The initial comments were based on the ??? In the title.
       
       
      And we'll soon be off.......culinary adventures to follow.

      Some of you may recall that in 2016 I had a blog about our trip to Newfoundland.  We are going there again tomorrow for a week, returning July 1 and I thought that since we are going to, and eating at, places different from that year, I would do another blog.  When I booked our flights and accommodations (7 places in 8 nights) last February, June 23rd seemed like a long ways away.  Yet here we are, about to leave.   I hope some of you will follow along as we travel through the province.

      In December, I spent 3 glorious weeks eating my way through Japan; Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Sapporo, Hakodate and back to Tokyo. It was my 11th (!) trip to Japan but my mother had never been, so I thought I'd take the old girl over for a good time. We did not kill each other, surprisingly.
       
      I'll come back and caption these a little more informatively over coming weeks, but as you can see, we ate rather a lot.
