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

yea, that's about right. never seen it anywhere else, including on congee, so you're one up on me there.

I like pork fluff best just scooped out of the big plastic container with a spoon. :biggrin:

supposedly we have a jar of it around the house somewhere.

as far as chinese buns, just about every morning, my dad goes to the bakery and gets some coffee. usually, he'll get some kinda bun or whatever else they have around and bring it back when he knows i'm home.

aside: chinese bakeries in chinatown are sorta like barbershops in black communities, ie social centers of the neighborhood.

don't really have a favorite bao.

ham sui gauk and jeen dui (glutinous rice paste as an outer shell, both fried, the former with pork bits on the inside, the latter with sweet red bean paste in the middle) would probably be among my favorites, as far as bakery items though.

SlKinsey,

Thanks for your reasonable post. You are right, there is no evidence that hormone levels in milk causes early menstruation. The fact is that we just don't know. One of the things that critics of rBGh gloss over is that hormones are naturally occuring in milking anyway. However, we don't know what the long-term effects will be from synthetic hormones. So, I don't want to take any chances. I'm not a zealot and I've eaten lots of things that aren't good for me in my life. But I figure if I have an option, no use taking a chance.

i just eat more when i'm out and about, less when i'm home all day.

i expend more energy in the former, less in the latter.

Alright, Ninotchka.

i take it you're responding to my response to torakris.

but what the hell is ninotchka?

i'm guessing it's some sort of russian word, but otherwise, i don't know the reference.

Ninotchka is a movie with Greta Garbo (who plays Ninotchka), where at one point, she explains how she eats only what her body requires. It's also the movie whence Silk Stockings came, with Cyd Charisse.

Oooh, Krispy Kreme! Did you heat it up first? They taste so much better when they're hot.

Mmm...Krispy Kreme. I think Vancouver's finally getting one in mid-2004. Don't have to go on 2 hour (one-way) KK runs (to Issaquah) anymore.

Was it a plain glazed? My favorites are the plain ones and the cream-filled ones. I can eat 4 or 5 of those after a Fatburger meal (conveniently located next to the Issaquah KK).

I just made my first ever apple pie. :cool:

Has anyone besides me notice the magnetic properties of the HOT NOW sign that seems to draw people in to KK. It's like getting trapped in a force field - resistance is futile and calories be damned when it's lit. :laugh:

Last time i went to KK, they gave a free hot glazed donut to each person waiting in line. This confection completely satisfied my craving, and then i was left standing in line wondering how to exit gracefully. I ended up buying two donuts and took them to someone else.

      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.

      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.
