correction:

that plum shaped thing (which might just be a type of plum i don't know about) is more of a slightly elongated sphere. and it is more purplish than i thought, but not the deep purple i think of when i see grapes.

just had one now.

Ooooh! I think I've got it! I think that "plum-shaped thing" you've been enjoying is a prune plum, also known as a French prune plum, an Italian prune plum, a sugar plum, or a quetsche (this last if you're in France). Does anyone concur? Do I win a prize?

Is furry pork (yook soong) th same as "jue yook si" (pork floss)?

Pork floss buns (a slightly sweetish baked bun topped with a mayo cream mixture and pork floss) have been the rage in Singapore and KL (chicken floss here though as using pork floss would automatically omit half the population) for the past couple of years or so.

Less the cinnamon than the raisins... raisin + brisket = ewwww... I have my own cinnamon issues that have nothing to do with its flavor that would keep me away from Herb's sandwich even w/o the raisins.

Actually it's pretty good. I sometimes make a sweet and sour brisket with dried fruit, one of which is raisins and diced root vegetables.

It's all in the preparation.

You're just eating the wrong apples...

I have access to excellent apples and have tried every variety at the farmer's market, but I'm just not into crunchy fruit right now. They hurt my teeth; I probably need a visit to the dentist :sad:

at 11:30AM, I had a Chinese pork pie and a garlic bagel with butter (Dunkin' Donuts, not the best, but acceptable)

at 12:30PM, I had one of those french plums, which i'm accepting it as, without further research until later.

Is the "fur" on your bun the shredded dried pork? I love that stuff on congee and on buns.

okay, the rest of my eats for today:

3PM, cup of La Colombe coffee. I had some ground at the bottom, which I didn't like, but I saw when she was pouring it was the bottom of the pot, so it didn't suprise me.

8PM, (12oz??) bottle of smoothie juice thing. Can't remember the brand, but refer to odwalla and fresh samantha. it was a strawberry banana.

11:30PM, some broccoli, finished the rest of that Jewish brisket on a roll (Maier's roll, wasn't soft enough for my tastes). also had 7 wings, not the complete wings, just the sections, just like most places have their buffalo wings. And a bottle of Sam Adams.

I used to have a roommate in college who would only eat cereal with half and half.  Pretty sure he's dead by now.

Ouch. That's rich.

We've got a new organic dairy in our area. Their milk is free of synthetic hormones (which, among other things, are thought to be the cause of the earlier menstruating among young girls). The milk also isn't homogonized and so the cream and milk are separate. This is especially apparent with the whole milk. When I forget to shake it up before serving, my little girl (4) always pushes it away because she says it's too sweet and "farmy" tasting.

You eat a lot of Chinese buns. Which one is your favorite? :)

Mine is gai may bao. :biggrin: And the pineapple one with custard inside.

Oh, actually my all-time favorite (but I rarely get it, since I've only seen it at one bakery in Chinatown) is the deep-fried one with red bean paste inside, and the whole fried bun is dredged in sugar. Sooooooooo good! (dao sa yong)

We've got a new organic dairy in our area. Their milk is free of synthetic hormones (which, among other things, are thought to be the cause of the earlier menstruating among young girls).

I am all about organic and near-organic dairy... however, there is no real evidence whatsoever that the milk from cows treated with rBGH causes young girls to start menstruating earlier. Indeed, there is some controversy over whether or not girls are, as a group, beginning to menstruate earlier in life and, if so, whether or not this isn't simply due to better nutrition (i.e., less malnutrition) compared to earlier generations -- or perhaps this only appears to be the case because have more awareness now due to greater openness about such things.

There is some evidence that elevated levels of the hormones related to or influenced by rBGH may be found in the milk of cows who are treated with rBGH. There is a great deal of disagreement, however, as to whether these are significant levels or significant hormones where humans are concerned and at typical levels of human consumption. Of far greater concern all around is the fact that the antibiotics that are typically deployed -- and which are typically deployed in higher levels where growth hormones are used -- promote the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

I'm not "accusing" you of willfully spreading misinformation or anything like that. One hears things like this frequently and it sounds reasonable until it is looked into a little more closely.

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread... :biggrin:

just had:

sandwich on a Cacia's (South Philly bakery) roll. the last sandwich i had was also a Cacia's roll, not Maier's.

I toasted the bread instead of putting it in the oven, and it was better, but still not my preference. I prefer the taste and texture of Sarcone's (also South Philly bakery).

Unfortunately, we have tons of Cacia's rolls in the freezer left over from something.

the sandwich had:

mendocino mustard, ham and provolone from Wawa, lettuce and tomato.

also had a small duck leg (the kind you can buy in Chinatown as part of half a duck or a whole duck) and an orange

      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.

      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.
