I have always thought that an affordable restaurant has as much interest in serving food that wont make you sick as any upscale place . The health dept. score is on the wall for all to see in every restaurant .

That would be a big old negative......

In Seattle, I thought I was eating a veggie wrap and bit into a big old piece of something.  I was certain I would get sick, and I had no problem discreetly depositing it into a napkin.

Lordy Gerg, did you even check to see if it was still alive before you tossed it out  :D

It was a Vietnamese vegetarian restaurant.  I thought it was a safe bet but they spoke no English and I can't speak their language.  Jan and I had to simply point at pictures to order.

It wasnt "in the bowl vegetarian noodle restaurant" was it?  Soooooooooooo good.  Everything is vegetarian but you wouldnt know it because they use fake meat.  The fake chicken curry is to scrumptious.  If it was this place then you were safe, it wasnt real meat.

They all look alike to me ;D  I don't think that is the place.  It's within a couple of blocks of the Roosevelt.  I believe it was downstairs.  But that was so long ago and brain fade is still a reality sometimes.

It really was fresh shrimp.  Jan had no problem with it, she gladly helped me out since she wasn't too excited about the menu.

Mike, I used to not like sushi because of the raw fish thingie, but then I just gave into it and began to love it. Come to Philly and I'll take you here: http://rawlounge.net/gallery.html  There are always cute boys there :)

I'd never force you to eat sushi... we can go to Han Dynasty for authentic Szechuan (note: not a nasty all-you-can-eat!). That is if you can handle very spicy eats. Otherwise it would have to be a top notch Italian like this: http://amisphilly.com/

Well I didnt want to go crazy with the diet thingie. Baby steps and all that, and my baby step is eating Quaker Oats and a banana for Breakfast EVERY morning replacing the fried egg and bacon or breakfast tacos I've been eating for the past 30 years. Besides my doc just told me to start with the Fish Oil for now, she didnt say anything about Diet. Yall were the ones that freaked out over my diet  :-*

Wumpy, you are a man after my own heart.

With this in mind I'm going to share with you a authentic Aussie recipe that I invented for tonight's tea (aka as dinner) and which I now name in your honor, the Wumpy Sanger.

Ingredients
6 slices of white supermarket bread
margarine
1 tin of ham (sliced into 9 slices) (you can use spam)
1 tin of pineapple rings
3 slices of cheese
tomato sauce (ketchup)

Directions
Butter 3 slices of bread generously with margarine.
Spread the tomato sauce over the other 3 slices of bread
Top each of the tomato sauced bread slices with the ham, a pineapple ring and cheese slice
Place buttered bread on top of cheese (butter side up)
Place "Wumpy Sangers" butter side down in hot frypan for 2 minutes.
Butter exposed uncooked bread and then turn "Wumpy Sanger" over and cook for further 2 minutes (or until cheese is melted).
Serve with 1.25ltre bottle of coke and sara lee baked cheese cake topped with whipped cream and a crumbled pepermint crisp chocolate bar over the top.

Bon Appetite!

btw, I am having Brown Beans and cornbread tonight. mmmm-mmmm.



Was it gluten free corn bread?

What kind of beans were they? Pinto beans are, of course, a staple in New Mexico, but I also like Anasazi beans and there are, of course, bolita beans, usually seen in northern Mexico, central New Mexico an just a smidgen north of the border in southern Colorado.

I have become a bean connoisseur.

So, what's wrong with grilled tuna? I love it, as long as its either raw or fully cooked. I don't care for the pan seared, raw in the middle type.

By the way, has everyone stocked up on their black eyed peas and collard greens? New Year's Day is fast approaching.

HUGS,

Mark

Oh, yes They were Pinto Beans. They are a staple down here also. I Put Bacon slices and onion in them, along with Season all and fresh garlic. Sometimes If I'm feeling fancy I will throw in a can of Rotel tomatoes towards the end of cook time. and no, sweety the cornbread was not Gluten-free. I can tell you that I use Corn grits instead of corn meal for my cornbread, gives it a better texture :)

oh btw, I have a new favorite pickle.. they are hot and spicy and heavenly. http://www.famousbbqstore.com/pickles1.html

Yum. Looks delish and you really cant go wrong with a Jewish pickle man.

Btw, NEVER underestimate the power of a good spray cheese.  If I make the boxed Mac and Cheese I will throw out the cheese powder and use the spray cheese in its place.  ;D

We have those here. They sell them in big containers at the convenience stores and movie theaters.  ;)

I was jonesing yesterday when I was down south and I stopped at a traditional market. They had just put out a stock of freshly grilled mutton ribs.

I like them, but they are so full of cholesterol, I did but look

Are you talking about those pickles in the big 5 gallon jars with the tongs hanging off them? Of course we have those, they are right between the 5 gallon pickled eggs and the 5 gallon pigs feet  ::). What do you think we are down here, uncivilized? sheesh

Oh, they have those horrendous pickled eggs in pubs in the UK sitting up on all of the bars. And they wonder why everyone goes outside and vomits vociferously at closing time.

Nope, not "on all of the bars". You rarely see them these days - probably a health and safety issue forced on us by EU regulations.

When did you become a vocal Tory Euro-sceptic back bencher? Did you go out and celebrate Cameron giving those German fascists and arrogant Frenchies the finger yesterday?

The only reason those jars of pickled eggs have disappeared is because all of the charming British pubs have been replaced with trendy modernist-style wine bars. Before you know it there won't be anything left in that country except cheap frozen pizzas from Tesco.

Nope, I couldn't give a toss what Camamoron did yesterday. He'll probably change his mind again in a few days anyway.

EU regulations piss me off in some ways, yes, like how we had to bring all our food processing centers etc up to EU regulations, but yet we do not receive a single pence in return as we are not part of the EU. When places in the UK had to do similar upgrades to meet requirements, they got subsidies, grants or other financial help meeting the extra costs of having the work done. We got jack shit. Our companies had to eat the costs.

We also have to accept EU residents as residents here (just like we accept the Brits), but we are not permitted the same access, residential or work rights in the EU and we cannot hold EU passports, unlike people in the UK. It's all take and no give, from the Manx perspective.

There are still plenty of traditional pubs in the UK, and even more so here on the Rock, but you don't see pickled eggs sitting on the bar any more anywhere.

When was the last time you were here anyway?

2001 I think.  And you were last in the US when?

A pickled egg with a bag of salted crisps and a bottle of coca-cola was my favourite treat when I was 8.

Rats - tasteless tortellini.  Every variety of supermarket tortellini is bland in Switzerland.  (Makes note never to buy again....  Mumbles would have been better off with spaghetti and garlic.)

Well duh, if you want good pasta go to a proper pasta shop. You're only a stone's throw from Italy, surely some Italian has set up shop in Zurich or whatever Swiss location you are in.

I am, fortunately, graced with speedy access to Talluto's, about 7 blocks walk away. Tasty goodness, and when I went to kick it up a notch I head for the lobster raviolli, but probably only once a year because it's pricey.

Since I had salads for lunch twice this week and Oatmeal every morning I decided to treat myself today...

FIVE GUYS  :o

Now some of you may gasp in horror at the display below, however I opted out of  the cheese or mayo on the burger, only lettuce and mustard and mushrooms. PLUS apparently the fries are fried in peanut oil, which according to their menu has no cholesterol in it?

*burrrrp* Scuse me.

I've been talking about Five Guys for years... after all it started in DC. The fact that this is your first visit there indicates a severe amount of FAIL.

Speaking of burgers though, after viewing the Comcast Holiday Spectacular on the largest LED display in the world this past Wednesday night, I took a friend to seek out what the local newspaper food critic calls the best burger in the city, at Good Dog. Alas, the wait was 30 minutes so we went to 500 Degrees where they serve a lower cost version of their burgers at expensive Rouge (eek $16 burgers, though cheaper than the $26 one at Village Whiskey). The 500 Degrees burger will set you back only $8 for a combo, though you can upgrade to things like truffle fries should you wish.

At best it was a toss up with Five Guys, though 500's bun was better. I'm still on a mission for Good Dog.
