Why dont they just make some sort of mexican omelette and shove it in a crispy taco shell. Or eggs and refried beans in a shell. It might be good.

Ok.

Hey tell us about the food over in Africa, did you have any cool stuff like Antelope on a stick? What were dinners like?

No bush meat.  Lots of veggies (they are big on eggplant - YUCK!), soups, lamb, beef, chicken.  Nothing too exotic actually.". Though it is a safari company that, despite employing Tanzanians (at above average wages...), still caters to Americans.

I've never hear of it, either.  I've only been to Golden Corral once - and that was enough. If I recall correctly, everything could be covered in gravy. You may as well shove a stick of margarine up your Carotid artery!

Its a fountain of flowing cheddar cheese for tempura . The cheddar fountain at golden corral has a sign warning parents to keep the kids out of it as well at the chocolate fountain ... I have seen children being chased down by parents as they try to get to those fountains as well as soft serve ice cream machine, its people watching at its best/worse .

i don't think real cheese is legal in the united states, you can't sell it at least. now there was nasty stuff they made me eat in france, had mites on it. and in switzerland i asked if they had swiss cheese, didn't get a laugh.

the real question is, how long does cheese last? doesn't it just become another type of cheese?

I usually LOVE the corny show "The Neighbors". Its about aliens who live in suburbia next to couple who have moved "up" from Bayonnne. (Moving on up...)
Anyway the latest episode was god awful. They were hosting an "Oscars Party" and the alien neighbours tried to be nice by surprising them with fancy fixings. Carrot Top and Erik Estrada were there. Estrada was really into the "caviar fountain" the aliens set up.  It was god freaking too hideous to watch.

I'm not sure what you're attempting to say here, but of course "real cheese" is made in the US -- quite excellent ones too if you know where to buy them.

http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/blogs/editor/2013/05/great-american-artisanal-cheeses-to-eat-now.html

But it's true, what most American purchase if vile, processed cheese full of emulsifiers, saturated vegetable fats and food coloring.

ALERT!

I just got back from Golden Corral....AND THE CHEESE FOUNTAIN WAS DOWN. So I had to double up on The Chocolate Fountain, which was was going like crazy... I had to elbow my way through the small gathering of 6-14y/o's but I made I finally made it to the liquid chocolately goodness.

I voiced my dismay to the powers that be, but to no avail.

I would write an angry email to corporate if I were you . Let them know how it made you feel when the cheese fountain was down and maybe explain that you have an incurable illness and can never get back the time you spent standing there in utter shock and heartbroken over the incident .

The Swiss call it fondue and it doesn't need to squirt out of a fountain. :)
A fondue restaurant reeks.. Some places have a special room you have to go to, to order melted cheese dishes.
If real cheese was squirting hotly through a fountain, all the diners might easily throw up.

I had some friends in Rockford Illinois who own a fondue restaurant . I would go to the bar and have drinks but I never had the fondue there because the place reeked really bad .

When you want sauce with steak, what sauce?
I had a simple rib eye, home fries, and red wine tonight.  I wanted sauce not catsup. I put on my plate - sweetish tangy german mustard, pretty spicy mango chutney, and whipped butter with wasabi.  I loved the mango chutney - is that weird?`

The only time I find any kind of sauce on a steak acceptable is something like an au poivre, Béarnaise, Bordelaise, but of course those are a fuss to make and best done at a restaurant.

At home what I do with a good quality rib eye is after grilling, let it rest for a few minutes, sprinkle with sea salt and some fresh pepper, then finish by dribbling a good balsamic vinegar on top. This is more of northern Italian way to serve steak.

For skirt/hangar steak which is, of course, a cheaper cut of meat -- but does great with citrusy marinades in a Latin style.

I love a good Horseradish cream sauce on a steak, but it's hard to find a good one, and I've yet to try to make it at home.

But a good steak really doesn't need any sauce.

I do have a bottle of A1 in my fridge though. rarely ever used.

I have been on a blue cheese kick for some reason.  Just crumble some really good blue cheese on a charcoal grilled steak and I am happy!  I don't overcook the meat so the natural juices and the blue cheese with some coarsely ground salt/pepper are really all I do.

Not me.  I do a medium rare for me.  We have a family member who likes them tough and dry and it 'kills' me to watch a good steak burn like it does to meet that requirement.  Hell, I love a good Japanese Steak Tataki but only from a reputable place.   

This weekend coming up will be grilling weather here but not sure what will end up on it yet.

Some people like to lop it's horns off, wipe its ass and throw it on the plate.

I ran some errands today and decided to pop into the Mohegan Sun Casino for a rare appearance. Not much gambling but I had a blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich and a margarita at Jimmy Buffet's.

While dining the bells and whistles went off and a monster sized bottle of tequila came down from the ceiling out of what I guess was supposed to look like an ice chamber of sorts. It poured out into a 7' pitcher with lots of bubble action. lol.

Rainy Saturday night, stayed in and just finished a batch of dark chocolate cupcakes. I don't think I've made cupcakes in 10 years.

What kind of frosting?  I think hard, "royal" icing with a kirsch flavour... ?

yeah swiss butter, swiss chocolate, and swiss eggs.
Got to think twice before I buy swiss eggs, one of the staples that doesn't bother to compete with European price points.

6 organic free range swiss eggs = 5.40 USD
6 non-organic swiss eggs, raised on ground not cages = 3.85 USD
10 budget imported (usually German) eggs, raised on ground not cages = 2.70 USD

That's fairly comparable to what we pay for eggs on the Rock. I think our "10 budget" deals are from Engerland though, rather than anywhere on the EU mainland. Local eggs always cost a bit more than eggs from "across" but I do try to buy local when it comes to food. If we don't support our local farmers and they all go belly-up, we're going to be in big trouble if there's ever a weather or ahem "political" event that cuts us off from the food supply for any length of time. Island life! :)

On another note, the ramsons (what Miss P calls ramps) are out, looking lovely and smelling divine in the glens of the Manx countryside. On sunny days the glens smell fantabulous this time of year because of them. And they're delish too! :D  :P <- that's me licking my chops, not sticking my tongue out at you!

Miss P, my ex wants to know if he can sell you a box or two of Manx Ramps. He can next-day-air them to you. Oh, and after viewing that photo of you cooking scallops the other day, he wants to know if you ever clean your pans. The scallops looked lovely, if a little over-cooked - but were they Manx scallops? (They are sold in the US in pricey, high-end foodie establishments of the type you frequent.) Manx scallops are the best. Any real seafood foodie will tell you that. Before you come in all guns blazing, you do know I'm teasing you, right?

The best queenies (basically small scallops) I've ever eaten came from the Sound of Gigha, which is a tiny stretch of water on the west coast of Scotland. Very sweet and melt-in-your-mouth goodness. Next to impossible to catch though, and we only caught enough to feed two people. Caught a load of scallops that day though, which is what we were after anyway.

PS - queenies themselves aren't "next to impossible to catch", just ones in the Sound of Gigha when you're working scallop gear. Queenies are usually fished in nets, but if you put a net down in the Sound of Gigha it would come back aboard ripped to shreds.

1) Ramps season in the Northeast will be delayed this year due to the colder weather -- they'll probably not start showing up for three more weeks. Let me know if you'd like my delicious ramp pasta recipe!

2) My scallops were not over-cooked -- usually I don't do this, but this time I lightly dusted them in breadcrumbs. And the pan is a commercial-kitchen grade small sautee that is dark metal on both sides. I can't remember where they were from -- the wholesaler  that supplies all the top restaurants in the city is located a few blocks from me and has a retail front too, and they label all of their seafood by origin and date of catch. They had four kinds of scallops that day.

3) I'm sure Manx scallops are delicious since you sit in that cold Irish Sea

4) Please note that P. magellanicus is found on the continental shelf of the northwest Atlantic from the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence south to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina -- as the crow flies I am only 60 miles from the ocean, ensuring fresh seafood at all times.

Bonus point: I know you don't have any delicious Cape May Salt Oysters where you live

This.  If nobody buys the Swiss farms' production, its curtains. But all the big chains are no longer pushing the Swiss goods cause the consumer vote with their purses to buy the big business produce designed to compete across Europe.  Don't get me started on the disastrous carbon footprints represented in the produce aisles, these days.

Yikes! $10.80 a dozen? Are they gold plated? Well, I guess I wouldn't mind if we Americans could get our healthcare costs under control.

And yes, shop local.

well, they are organic. And raised in yards, maybe in view of the Alps, even  :o so....
How much is a free-range farm laid egg where you live? Say, at the farmer's market.

I dont care much for organic vs regular, if theres a big price difference. The price of some organic stuff has come down, like its a few dimes more for organic milk vs regular. But the cows can't be pumped fill with crap like in some countries, so the "regular" milk is pretty wholesome and tasty and I dont drink all that much anyway.
