yeah...but it does lurk in the back of your mind somewhere.....hmmmmmmm....the food I used to call "normal" is now swell compared to what I can cook now.....

did you mean "swell" or did you mean "swill"? makes a bit of difference in the post.. :biggrin:

oops! sorry! Swill..... :wink:

You arent afraid of using up your Sting caffeinated gum, because you think the odds are good someone on the Japan forum will take pity on you and ship you some when the need arises.

I just saw caffeinated gum at a gas station in NY state last week....I dont know where we were but it was on the way to some nasty BBQ place :sad:

The great thing about barbeque is that when you get hungry 3 hours later....you can lick your fingers

...when you realize that you are in your second transition.

The first transition was when I felt guilty about eating certain things, because they were highly-processed and just not "pc" for eGullet.  Or when I ate them but knew I would never "fess up" to it on eG.

The second transition is no longer having any appetite, at all, for such things.

What's next? :laugh:

But even a Big Mac and Velveeta Slices and even Hamburger Helper are full of comfort food merit. I think a Foodie is one who appreciates all things from Big Macs to Filet Mignon with Truffles.

I agree, although I still think of Velveeta more as fish bait than food. :laugh:

Wow, that's amazing! I hope someone who knows colloquial Indonesian will clarify whether the word means something different than it does in Malay.

In Wikipedia, this is listed as having a different meaning in the two languages here, scroll down to 'transexual' in the section on vocabulary differences.

Can't imagine the product would sell too well in Malaysia, though! :laugh:

The fish would turn up their gills at the stuff.

But it really does make good macaroni and cheese. Along with other cheeses in the mix, of course.

My mom just came back from Hungary and brought back paprika. I thought this was so cool, when I spoke with my sister today and mentioned, "Mommy brought us back some paprika", she just laughed, it took awhile to dawn on me that she was not excited (I think she expected a magnet or doll, LOL!). It's really funny because I was just speaking to my BIL about travel and he said instead of regular souvineirs he trys to bring back local spices/foodstuffs, and he shared my excitment about the paprika. Just a different mindset, I then thought of this thread.

You *know* you're an EGulleteer when...........

You trot out to your patio at 9:30 at night, braving a major June bug invasion, to pluck some fresh mint leaves to put on your "midnight snack" of sliced strawberries macerated in Grand Marnier, then drizzled with some fresh lime juice & sprinkled with sugar. AND chiffonade-ing (forgive me, I'm quite sure I spelled that wrong....) the mint quite precisely before adding it to the berries.

Which, BTW, were delicious. The mint absolutely made them sing. And I managed to dodge any attacks by the dreaded Junie Bugz.........

you know you're an egulleter when you have actually contemplated using tumeric as eyeshadow (not a lot just a little), and rose water or orange blossom water as "perfume"

eta: I dont think the above mentioned makes me an egulleter...it makes me weird :hmmm:

When you spot a thread titled "Phyllo Dough", read it, and fantasize about making every dough/pastry known to man. Then your heart breaks a little when you remember that you don't have a stand mixer, and therefore no dough hook. Then you think about working out a bit more so you can do it by hand.

Hmmm...and who is the lucky receiver of the goodies you are sending. Might they be coming to Chicago? TO ME? Haha! Again - YOU'RE THE BEST for doing this, I am so excited. Yours will be mailed out soon too. Be expecting whoppers (I just think you need to try these - they're an added bonus to the other things) milkduds, and goldfish in multiple varieties (cheddar, parmeson, and a few other surprises!).

I am so proud!

I think I am finally an official E-Ger!

(that in itself oughta do it! :rolleyes: )

I have been craving sushi so hard, even dreaming of lovely, velvety uni swimming around my head. I gathered my nerves and hit "buy"! Now, I am pacing the floor anxiously waiting for the FEDEX truck to bring me my fresh load of fish.......fatty tuna, salmon, uni, and salmon roe. drool. I have never made my own sushi before, and you know what they say.."necessity......."

My first thought was of course, to tell all of you and ask for advice!

(if you havn't guessed, I recently moved to a very southern, land-locked state, where the people actually don't know what sushi is?) Truly, I have been asked! More than once!

Now, happily, I am getting fresh fish, that I paid Way too much for and will gorge myself until I fall bloated to the floor in a sushi coma with a big, stupid grin on my face.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, life is good!

Brenda

I whistfully mentioned how I missed sushi. Truly horrified, she told me "you city folk eat the strangest things!", and offered me a freshly fried chitterling!

...when you keep a supply of Pocky in your office desk drawer.

Credit to torakris and her Foodblog for that one.  :raz:

You learn about Pocky from the foodblogs, and use them to pottytrain your toddler.

And forget to tell Gramma what "Pocky!" are. She assumes its a cute word that belongs on that other thread.

...when you have desserts for breakfast more often than not only because you were waiting for the perfect lighting to take a picture.

Really, I need to time things better so I can use the evening light instead, but work makes it tough. That's okay, I don't mind dessert in the morning.

So it's not just me.

You know you're a gadget-loving egulleter when you can't wait for the next thread on kitchen equipment. Of course, I keep telling myself that I don't need anything more for my kitchen. My inner self replies "What if you've missing the one great thing that will make your kitchen life complete :wink: . So it's off to "Today's Hot Topics" again because who knows what may have popped up in the last 20 minutes...

I totally empathize with this. I came back from Mexico with a couple of kilos of local sea salt to distribute as gifts for the few people I know who would appreciate it. The comments I got about walking around the office with a purse full of Mexican salt were priceless.

And my parents were cute when they went to Hawaii. Instead of the usual oversized t-shirt and tacky earrings, they brought me 3 different kinds of salt, purple taro bread machine mix, macadamia nuts, and a couple of exotic spice blends. I was so excited!
