Today I didn't want to do anything too complicated and did a potato omelette with onion and peppers. It was one of my best omelettes ever!

Also, I've started writing my Skull and Shackles campaign in the Campaign Journals board. It's going to be a hard work to do!

I can agree with that. Pricey though. Also, Dim sum is a great Asian dining experience

Fun fact: 'Chinese' fortune cookies are an American invention. In China they're called American fortune cookies.

I got two good fortunes tonight:

The future comes one day at a time

And

Success is usually the fruit of patience

There are, unfortunately no dim sum from here to D.C. I've always wanted to try it, and I am going to D.C. here in a couple months, so maybe I'll try it then...

P.s. I already knew that fun fact, but trivia has always been slightly important to my family.

Last time I had Chinese dinner my fortune cookie said, "That wasn't chicken" no respect I tell ya!

I got a fortune once that was a Beatles lyric:

There's a dim sum place here in Minneapolis that is pretty good. On Saturday mornings the line is quite long to get in. On Sundays there is still a line, but it's less long. Usually if you don't get in the first wave, you're better off not sitting down.

There's not any semidecent chinese food place here.
In a near city there's a great Japanese, though.

The nice thing about Madison, is it has such a rich diversity of people.

Half of whom have opened up restaurants or food carts. :-)

Maybe we don't have diversity, but you cannot walk two steps without finding a bar, a restaurant or a cafeteria.
Specially in Lugo, which is one of the places in Spain with more bars for inhabitant.

I miss Sambas Brazilian grill in Madison. Great ambiance and tasty food. We got one in Minneapolis called fogo de chao but it sucks. They have a tiny bar to dissuade folks from lounging and pack em in buttz 2 nuttz to maximize square footage. Day and night experiences.

Publix had pints of Gelato Fiasco on sale for buy-one-get-one-free, so today I picked up a pint of Strawberry and a pint of Madagascar Vanilla Bean (the store only had one other flavor on the shelf). Cracked open the strawberry tonight... and I'm not impressed. Sure, it's good like any premium ice cream should be, but I think pain ol' strawberry Häagen-Dazs is markedly better. Maybe I'll have better luck with the vanilla gelato.

Opened the vanilla bean today. I prefer it to the strawberry flavor, but still. I think I'm just getting excessively picky as I get older and/or my taste buds are declining.

Nothing wrong with that. welcome to the impossible standards club :)


Since I've studied cooking my tastes have expanded a lot in the fact that I like foods that I hadn't tried before. But now I am very picky with the quality of what I eat. Before I could eat at Burger King and it would be OK. Now I start complaining of how making my own burgers at home tastes better and is cheaper. And I get real meat, real bread and cheese that's not made of plastic xD


Yeah I avoid fast food unless I'm desperate or feeling real lazy.


I usually do, but when I'm with friends they sometimes want to go to fast food places.
Before we started gaming at my home, where I always make some sandwiches or similar for supper, I went to a friend's home, and he was obsessed with picking the dinner at BK, so I had to eat BK every weekend. I started bringing my own sandwiches, because I ended being tired of it.

Fast food gets old quick.

I enjoyed Domino's pizza before they closed.
I bake my own pizza at home but Domino's is not bad. There are very good traditional pizza places too, but again, they are more expensive. When you live on the day, you have to save money.

Coming from a family where cooking's always been a huge deal, I've really never enjoyed most fast food, but I'll cop to being rather fond of McDonald's pommes frites, and you can't go to a football match without a sausage-in-a-bun during half-time.


Once I did my own sausages at home.
They looked like something you'd feed to a dog.


You can feed sausages to a dog.

Over here we call them Bratwurst.

Football is still football but at least we have the sense not to show the knees.


You can, but this so called sausages could only be fed to a dog.
I ate them anyway. They tasted better than they looked but I definitely should have put more fat on them because they were very dry.

Bratwurst are the white ones, for what I know. I don't know if I like them better than Wiener or Frankfurt, it depends on the day.

I can't eat brats myself, they make me gag every time.

Jell-o too.

Frankly, I miss the 80's and early 90's when footballers didn't just show the knees, but a decent amount of thigh as well.

potatoes are awesome...that is all.

I worked for three years for Dominos. The one good takeaway from that job is I can make a very good, very quick homemade pizza. I have a good dough recipe, and a couple hours of rising and you are ready to go


La rosas pizza I still dream about. I can't get it where I live now. I also discovered that I love the wood stove pizza's that are popping up everywhere right now.

My brother and I made pancakes this morning.

Apparently I can make pancakes. Who knew?


Everybody can. You just have to try.

I'm wearing my shirt with Pac man chasing a ghost turned blue and it says "back in the day"

It will also be 72 degrees today. :-)

I'm thinking about getting some steak 'n shake tonight... probably shouldn't... but, I don't feel like cooking after driving three hours, and I would have to go to the store anyway...

I made some sandwiches today for my players. I've starting to think they come just for the food! XD

That's too bad, I thought you were a man of taste and distinction. :P

A man of taste and distinction would not include all those riff-raff ingredients if he were making chili. Real chili doesn't even include beans, much less cheese.


I'm gonna support crystal seas chili with no beans.

This is what he's talking about.

It's true. Many people, especially from the American Southwest insist that real chili is just meat, chili peppers, onions, and garlic. With beans and rice off to the side, if at all. The idea of adding beans to chili originated in New England, which drives chili "purists" up the wall. Especially if they're in Texas.

Edit: minor editing. :) Damn my lack of morning caffeine.


Ok, I admit, that definition of chili seems to be just the filling of a taco/burrito/fajita to me. Then again, my favorite chili is a French white chili, called something like (pardon my spelling) casoule.


Cassoulet? Yummy!

Today I did ham with peas! Quick and delicious! I was called at 1 PM to work at 3 PM so I had to cancel all my cooking plans.


Oh, I just hate those last-minute call-ins. The mad scramble to get ready. Being unable to prepare anything before hand. When that happens to me, I stop at the Dollar Store to buy some Ramen and some frozen Mixed Vegetables.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I just check my freezer. There's always something prepared there.

I get a lot of these calls this days. I'm first on the lists, what is great, but it also means I get all the last minute contracts (and that I'll be working again with faeces today. I get all the crap)
