Ground floor posting!

I'm really not a fan of sushi anymore, mostly because I can't justify the cost when really good fish and mediocre fish taste almost the same to my palate. I think smoking, hard liquor, and flavorpunch food have taken their toll, because I remember I used to enjoy it a lot more.

Will still eat the hell out of uni though, and japanese food is so varied that losing sushi isn't a big hit.

I am incredibly saddened by American sushi. I'd love to have some inari, but nobody seems to really make it around here. At least I found a good place for soba. But there's so many places into fusion stuff it kinda blows my mind.

When we would drive to Georgia from South Florida, we'd see these little stands on the side of the roads, with farmers selling their own peaches, boiled peanuts, and those gorgeous tomatoes. My dad would always pull over, buy a boatload of peaches, or boiled peanuts, or tomatoes, and let us eat some right then and there, while talking to the farmer for a bit. I remember biting into a ripe, fragrant peach, and having the thing explode in my mouth. The juice would splash the top, sides, and back of my whole mouth, even with a small bite, and a bit would run down my hand. I can remember those peaches to this day.

Never have I been able to stomach the peaches I've eaten outside of North Florida or Georgia. They're just nowhere near as good smelling or tasty. I feel you, SJury.

Oh, god. gently caress me. The only thing I liked better than the peach stands were the pecan stands, or the little pecan grove stores that had pecan everything. We'd bring napkins with us because those peaches were just so incredibly good we couldn't wait until we got them home where it was a bit less likely to pour all over your shirt. Lottery tickets and peaches, every weekend in summer.

E: Lavender sucks because it's way too strong. I get hay fever around it and the taste makes me think of the time I tried to drink my mom's perfume as a kid, on a far less terrible scale. Either I've had it made terribly wrong or it's just not for me.

try making it re: the link I posted above. I was really surprised as how well mine turned out.

I've had this idealized 'form of mustard' floating in my head for a couple years, and it was nice to try my hand at putting it into existence. I wouldn't say I succeeded, but I wouldn't say I failed either...

but to answer your question - you've probably had it, but if you haven't, try inglehoffer's stone ground - it's my favorite big name commercial brand. http://www.amazon.com/Inglehoffer-M...s/dp/B000EY3OMS

I've had grey poupon and the stuff that comes in a yellow squirt bottle next to the heinz ketchup (I cannot for the life of me think of what brand that is). All I've had is lovely mustard, but it tastes so good. I am going to try that mustard. And I'll likely try that recipe too.

Well if you get drunk enough, you kinda automatically lay down. It may not be on something you want to lay down on. I would suggest laying down first. Congratulations on surviving, though.

I really have no problem with chain restaurants like Fridays, they do what they do, it's not great food generally (I've never been to a Fridays admittedly) but it's fair enough if you like that sort of thing. But people like this I want to punch in their stupid loving faces. You all the way to Ecuador and ate in a Friday's 4 times? I hope they then ate a badly prepared Ceviche and had their bowels destroyed as punishment.

I.. suppose I could understand if they were there for like, 6 months or something. But I just know they weren't. That's just disappointing though. I know a vacation isn't you know, just food or anything like that, but.. god drat, you're in a really cool location! Go out and try stuff that's recommended to you!

It's like while we were in the hotel waiting to get the gently caress out of Okinawa. Some folks were just getting there and were asking the hotel check-in staff where to eat. Every time they suggested a local place they asked if they had "burgers" or "steaks" or "chicken fingers".

cleaning an oven is one of those things I've never understood. who does this, and why?

I mean if something spills all over the place, sure, get out the scrubbrush and bartenders friend - but otherwise, everything just burns off as you use the oven right? If you're really wanting to "clean" it, just crank it up to 600 for an hour or two, right? this is what you all mean by cleaning the oven.... right?



no-one like... scrubs down the sides of their oven on a regular basis.... right?

I set my (electric) oven on fire in Okinawa, so I kinda had to pour a shitload of oven cleaner on it and sit there for an hour and scrape all the drat char and burn out of it. But yeah otherwise I just turn it up ungodly hot every now and then and sweep out any ash after it cools.

A dry wedding reception is the worst thing.

Not necessarily. Everyone was driving away from our wedding in pretty heavy traffic. We didn't have a drop to drink because we weren't going to be morally responsible for stupid people DUI'ing or whatever. Especially after a death in my husband's family involving drunk driving.

So if your guests aren't going to be able to work off the alcohol or have a DD and they have a good ways to drive, it might even be for the better.


dino. posted:

Anyone who's having a wedding: tell your ministers to shut the gently caress up. Nobody's interested. Get to the readings, get to the vows, then SHUT UP ALREADY. A 30 minute long sermon, where you ramble on about stupid poo poo that nobody else cares about? Not loving cute.

The rear end in a top hat doing mine tried this poo poo. About two minutes into it I smiled up at him, peeked under my veil and asked him if today was about him or if it was about me and my husband. Especially since we'd asked him to shut the gently caress up about religious poo poo entirely. He shut up, got done with the vows and I got to go hide for a while and settle down after having taken the wrong limo to my own wedding

I found out later that husband didn't tip him because the rear end in a top hat told him I was "an un-Godly woman" for interrupting a minister and that I'd never obey him like God intended and a bunch of other crazy poo poo. Husband said that was good, because he hates going to church and he wanted a wife, not a slave

So yeah, gently caress pompous wedding ministers. And best of luck sizing your buddy.

Hello friends. Where do I eat delicious food on Maui and Oahu? I have never ever been to Hawaii and Hawkboy and I are going for our honeymoon.

Go to Liliha Bakery early on some morning for breakfast. It's been years since I was down in Honolulu, but I'm told their pancakes are still to die for and their bakery items are pretty decent (everyone raves about the cocoa puffs). Go find a curry shop (Coco's Ichibanya or other, whatever smells awesome when you walk in, there's tons down there). Stop at some tiny shack near the beach that has pineapple and seafood and feast (you'll probably find that up towards north shore).
