When you say "creamy," do you mean a white sauce? I'm not a fan.

No, it's definitely a creamy tomato sauce. It's sort of orange, and quite different from alfredo sauce or something similar.

Really? Me either! Ever since I got food poisoning from some Swedish meatballs (and my mom made some kind of white sauce with them), I haven't ever been able to eat most foods with a white-based sauce since then. It's not the taste, it's the smell that does me in.

I've got fond memories of that day: My iPod was broken, and we were driving 25 miles to the nearest Apple Store. I started getting queasy in the store, and during the ride home, I got cozy with my dad's maintenance bucket that he uses to paint houses with. -_-

Also, freshly cut cucumbers with vinegar and salt & pepper are delicious. :3

Hey GunRacer, I tried that popcorn recipe.... It was okay, but it wasn't a lightly spicy combination like I was expecting. Thanks for sharing though!

Beagle: Oops! Guess I shoulda mentioned that the chili sauce is really spicy, even for someone as used to spicy foods as I am. That's why its a really good idea to make your own natural popcorn and then add butter to it-- all the fat helps cut the capsaicin of the chilis.

Texascat: So what sort of meat and veggies did you put on your sandwich?

RBH: Herbed mayo is really good with roast beef. If you like mayo, that is.

well, usualy salted bacon, letteuce, yellow cheese, egg and pickle. I never get bored of this recipe. I wish I can cook homemade popcorn.

by the way, I just had this

nom, soooo satisfying.....

tip egg works really well with noddle above. just crack an egg in to noodle while boiling/cooking it, also you can add a cheese in to bowl of noodle.

No, I freaking love spicy food. It wasn't spicy enough for me is what I'm saying. Texaspete is a staple condiment in my diet, and I love Tobasco sauce as well.

Oh.

Then you just weren't using enough, maybe? Or was the popcorn getting too soggy? Hope future tries go better for you.

And on the topic of regional foods, beef fajitas.

Ah, Valerio, you remind me of lunch breaks when I was in Italy. The brief time I was there we had an hour and a half for lunch and we went to this fantastic little restaurant at a petrol/gas station. Very good food in generous quantities, and always ended in a delicious shot of espresso.

Here in America, I get half an hour, it's usually a sandwich, and the coffee is awful. Lunch is something you should be able to take the time to enjoy.

One of my favorite snack foods is the flavor blasted gold fish crackers. My gosh those are good... If you get a carton of those near me, it'll be gone in a matter of minutes. The huge carton is hard for me to stay out of too. Mom had to make me put them up one time because I was eating too much at one time.

I like the regular ones. I eat those so much. The flavor blasted variety is alright, I guess, but I don't particularly enjoy them as much.

They have have to be the cheddar cheese flavored ones though. That's the best.

@Mcfly- You really need to try a Godzilla Roll. It's pretty epic.

I meant the regular, "flavorless" ones. Those aren't bad but they aren't as good as the cheddar ones.

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound snappy. I was in a bit of an ill mood for about two weeks or so.

I'm not really sure. Knowing me, I might have made it wrong. I'm kind of horrible at cooking.

Cooked up some Tilapia tonight. So delicate and so delicious. Surprised how well it went with Sierra Nevada Summerfest.

But I know that fish could have been better. Who's got some superb methods of making fish the best tasting food in the world?

I had Red Robin's ghost chili sauce yesterday with my dinner. Either I have a natural tolerance of spiciness, or it was a very dilute sauce. Because the ghost chili is allegedly the hottest pepper in the world, and yet it barely affected me.

Tex-Mex and Mexican food =just so awsome. I went to some local Mex/Tex-Mex food place.
It wasn't like Tacobell, I had to actualy wait for 15min to get a one food, and it tasted like food. Not factory made. I have No idea what I ate but it was simply good. Everything looked like Taco but they each had different name.

Taco Bell isn't even Tex-Mex. It's just... Taco Bell.

Taco Bell is to mexican restaurants what McDonald's is to Red Robin

Beagle: You didn't sound snappy or anything-- glad to hear you're feeling better now, though.

Dan: Well, I don't know a ton about fish... but those cedar grilling planks will supposedly give you some good fish if you do your part.

TC: Taco Bell? No thanks. Taco Cabana, however, is great for a quick fajita fix on the go. Local places are, of course, still the best-- plus, you get to pack in the free chips and salsa while you wait for your order.

Bad comparison. McDonald's and Red Robin definitely come from the same origin. Red Robin is just much slower and more expensive (and more delicious). Whereas Taco Bell is not only low-quality, it also bears very little resemblance to actual Mexican cuisine. Or even Americanized Mexican cuisine.

Post subject:  Re: The Food Topic #Nom nOm noM

I went to a real Mexican restaurant today. The place has great food, quick service, and most of their dishes are as good a deal if not better than fast food. It's not as quick as going to a McDonalds or Taco Bell, but well worth it if you have half an hour to just sit and eat.

I couldn't even finish, and that doesn't happen that often with me.

Author:  Sleet [ Thu Jul 12, 2012 7:55 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: The Food Topic #Nom nOm noM

We have a Mexican restaurant around here that's pretty much on par with fast food, price-wise, but very high-quality. I'm not going to argue that it's the kind of stuff they eat in Mexico, but it's at least run by Hispanics.

You know what's really good? Sauteed mushrooms over a nice steak. A slightly-upscale restaurant we used to visit prepared their mushrooms by sauteing them in butter, salt, pepper, garlic, and a little bit of Marsala cooking wine. I made this dish a few nights ago when I had to cook dinner.

Woah! My man, you missed out. Guess the bottomless-chip-bowl-at-Mexican-restaurants concept is so deeply ingrained into the Texan psyche that nobody bothers mentioning it. For locals, it would be like having your waitress inform you that you're supposed to eat your salad with the supplied fork and not a butter knife. Duh.

Unless, of course, you're from out of state. Now, the only adequate solution for your predicament is to go out for Mexican food again-- y'know, just so you can appreciate the full experience. It's culturally significant!

Aaaand now I'm hungry.

Probably because there was a lot of food.
