I used to chop the onions for French Onion Soup at a restaurant I worked at. It had really good French Onion soup, so it was quite popular. I chopped about 150 pounds of onions a week.

So i can handle my onions. Just please! No French Onion Soup! :-)

For me, it's sausage gravy I can't abide. I made at least 5 gallons every day, double that for weekends. I love sausage still, but that stuff...not so much.

My father and grandparents used to own a butchery and my father visited some factories where sausages were made. He never ate sausages again.

Quiznos had a sub that I really liked but it was temporary promotional thing. prime rib with fire-roasted poblano peppers with chipotle mayo, layered with habanero and jalapeno pepperjack cheese. So good super hot for fast food. I feel like every time they had one i really liked they discontinued it. really no wonder they are going (went maybe) bankrupt.

We had 2 Quizno's here in town, but we're down to one. I like their sandwiches, but they were too expensive for what you got, no matter how tasty they were. Subway is a better deal, and you can customize your sandwiches better there, too.

There's a simple reason why I don't like shrimp so much. Go ahead and guess who had to clean the shrimp in the restaurant in which I worked.


I had to clean more than 200 squids in a day, but I still like cleaning squids for some reason.


Maybe because they looked like Pasta Rings when you were done?


Nah, they looked more like this.
I sometimes served them filled too.


They look delicious.


They are indeed. I love them grilled, stewed, whatever. With their heads chopped and mixed with veggies as a filling they are great too.

Squid rings, stuffed with crab or shellfish, tempura battered and deep fried.

This is not fair you know, I am still full from tacos and now I am hungry again.

I have worked every part of the food industry, seed/hoof to cook/serve, and really have no qualms about eating, but yes, there are some very Wrong things out there.


Hmmmmm... interesting point.
What is BadWrongFood for you?


Oh, there are some companies I avoid, cannot for legal reasons list them.
Oddly, the only foods I have difficulty with are eggplant, okra, and lasagna.

I love all three of those!


Seafood...for some reason, bad genetics, cursed bloodline or just plain old bad luck, I can't stomach seafood.
I either get rashes, my neck balloons up or the food doesn't agree with my stomach, giving me terrible abdominal aches, and exits with high velocity from either ends of my body.

So, every time you eat seafood a Gwar album is birthed. Get this man some clams and sushi!

It surprises me every time, how good the acoustics of a porcelain bowl are.

Funny how that usually works out. Luckily, I only had to make gravy with the sausage, not make the sausage. KP in a restaurant, not a butcher thankfully.

Subway is badwrongfood for me.

Subway is good/awesomefood for myself.

Mostly 'cause it's cheap, but also, I like sweet-onion chicken.

Made ice cream sandwiches this weekend. I found this cool mold that let's me make them so they look kinda like the store-bought ones. I used Betty Crocker gluten free brownie mix for the cookie parts. I usually make brownies from scratch, but my recipe tends towards the crumbly, and I thought that wouldn't work well for ice cream sandwiches, so I used a mix. And filled them with mint chip ice cream. They were glorious. I wouldn't recommend going to all the trouble if you can just buy them at the store, but they don't care any gluten free versions where I shop, so it was a welcome chance to enjoy a treat I hadn't had in a long time. :)

Life with food allergies. I often have to make treats from scratch instead of buying premade. But at least it's giving me lots of opportunities to gain new cooking skills. :P


Woo-hoo, Lynora! There you go!


Delicious!!!

And McDonalds is BadWrongFood for me. I never ate something barely edible there.

My personal favorite is the foot-long Steak and Cheese on wheat, with Pepperjack cheese, Southwest Chipotle Sauce, and Lettuce, Tomato, and Onion.


Sounds good indeed.

Toasted, of course. My second choice is Roasted Chicken breast on Wheat, with Provolone cheese, a little bit of Marinara sauce, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Olives and Spinach. Again, on a toasted bun.


I love a good chicken and green pepper sandwich (with or without cheese). Specially with some small slightly spicy green peppers that are kinda popular here.

Btw, what is the difference between a sandwich and a sub?

When I talk about sandwiches I am always talking about sandwiches with real bread, not soft bread.


The size and shape of the bread. For a sandwich, anything will do. A sub, which is short for submarine sandwich is long and relatively narrow, something like a Baguette, but with a softer crust.


Understood! Thanks!

I don't know either what are the names for the bread that lasts longer, is baked in a mold and is softer in opposition of the traditional hard crusted bread that is only fresh on the day that it's baked.


Here in the 'States, that type of bread is typically called an Italian Sandwich Roll.


The first or the second I mentioned?

Here the fresh crunchy one is just called bread. The other one is mold bread.


The second. But you only need to keep the dough in the mold until it firms up. Once it is relatively firm, you can bake several in the oven. Just allow for spacing, so that the bread doesn't expand into its neighbors.


I've never baked mold bread but I usually bake all kinds of the other. Here in Spain it's the most common variety and Galicia is known for having specially good bread. Doing traditional bread without being baked in a stone oven is just not the same even if you use the right techniques and a high quality flour, but I like baking my own bread from time to time.

At subway, lol

I wont drag this out further than this. I'll just say that you get what you pay for. I understand Subway is within some folks budget, but its really the McDonalds of subs.

It's not so much a matter of money, as a matter of time. There's a Subway around the corner of one of my bus stops as I'm going to work. I don't have a half hour or more to wait on my order when my second bus is arriving within minutes.

If time wasn't an issue, I'd go to Sbarro and get a couple Stromboli.


Tonight menu:

Leftovers from the weekend and pasta.
(mostly some pork bits and miscellaneous vegetables - carrots, garlic, bell pepper and lettuce)

slightly less then half a bottle of red wine.

verdict: That was...unfulfilling...I think I'm gonna need a sandwich later...


Today I'm not having dinner until 10PM+ so I shouldn't be looking this thread. Dalindra is going to have some cool bread for my sandwich, that's the good part.


Kileanna, since it's almost 10PM in your time zone, let me wish you a good night. :)


Thanks! I've just eaten a good sandwich and some of the strawberry cheesecake I've done this morning. I'm ending my new drawing right now and soon I'll be going to sleep. I had a good day and I feel tired but happy.

Have a nice day, John! And everybody reading this too!


My wife use to make home made bread, before we discovered my daughter's allergy. We have cut back on bread use now. The gluten free recipes are not the same in taste or texture. We use to buy everything from a deli to make subs at home about every other week. Such an easy meal and clean up with a family of six. Dishes are always a big task in my house. I am the dishwasher, and most meals require 20 to 60 minutes of dish washing. If I skip just one meal it piles up quick.

My family shared our first watermelon of the year. I know not everyone likes watermelon, but that is not the case in my family. If I don't eat a it while I am cutting it I might not get any. I like all kinds of melons, but watermelon is the only one that all my family likes.


Have you tried watermelon salad? Delicious.

My favorite watermelon salad has romaine lettuce (two or three heads) one watermelon, red onions, sunflower seeds, olives, and feta. Then you mix equal parts olive oil (must be extra virgin, seriously, don't skimp on olive oil for salad-dressings) and balsamic vinegar, usually about 1/2 cup of each does nicely, mix thoroughly, then pour it on and enjoy.


Have you tried ham with melon? Just cured ham and melon. It's deicious!

Your watermelon salad looks great. I usually put fruits to my salads (watermelon, apple, pinneapple, melon, berries, etc.)


I went to school in a place called Cave City, Arkansas. They proudly proclaim to have the world's sweetest watermelons. I can't say this is the absolute truth, but by gosh they have some good ones there.


I don't like fruit to be too sweet, but watermelons are an exception.


And people who salt on watermelon are just uncivilized heathens.

I prefer the seedless variety. But I agree about the salt. It ruins the taste of the watermelon.


Bought a packet of black tea with cardamon yesterday. I like it a lot.
