    Currently drinking maple sap and questioning several things in my life. Like why it's possible to buy a box of maple sap and why I bought two.

    I love Americanized Chinese food, and challah and I'm trying to learn recipes for more Jewish food because it was never really something we got taught when I was growing up? It was just "your grandmother makes mandelbrot, and little shortbread cookies, and we make latkes and your mom makes really lumpy-looking buns out of matzoh meal" and...yeah. I really want a whole collection of cookbooks, honestly.

    I like food a lot! Sometimes it doesn't like me, but as an example of how well I was brought up on good food when I was like four or five I spent a whole night being sick because I'd stolen and eaten too much smoked salmon at the grown-up's dinner party ^^;;;

    I FRIGGIN LOVE SEAFOOD AND SUSHI. I COULD HAPPILY EAT SUSHI FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE AND NOTHING ELSE. (My uncle looks at me sideways because I usually can't afford anything fancier than YO!Sushi but I love it okay and I can make a mean onigiri don't test me XD)

    Tonight I was planning to do a big cheap-steak, three-bean and offal stew (kidneys and heart), but since mum bought and cooked too much food yesterday for lunch guests, I'm changing it to precooked sausage and brown rice hash up, probably with broad beans and kale if I can be asked for the veggie side of things XD (BONUS POINTS - the kale is out of the garden, 100% organic and I grew it myself from seed! :D )

    Also remind me to post pictures of food that I've done. I know I have a really good pic of a tuna and veggie pasta melt I did a while back...

    I made raw fries and hot wings tonight because I wanted deep fried food!

    (Raw fries are apparently unknown out of the South, they're basically homemade potato chips but not as crispy and sliced a little thicker. So good with vinegar or whatever dip you use with your wings.)

  9. Oooh, looks nice. I know homemade potato chips and home fries (?) are good, but I haven't tried raw fries yet.

    Also, the poll on this thread is taunting me. Why can't I choose like. Four food groups? Why just one?

    Original Pancake House is running a special of spicy eggs benedict with chorizo instead of Canadian bacon and chipotle hollandaise. It is so good.

    Their potato pancakes are stupidly good too.

  14. Are crumpets a regional thing, or what? I'm in the US and have recently tried crumpets and I think they're great, but mom says most people she knows don't like them at all because of the spongy texture.

    Previous to me googling them just now, my brain had slotted crumpets in the same "excessively British tea food" space as clotted cream - things that probably existed but that I'd never seen or heard of outside of books. It's interesting they're available somewhere in the US!

    Crumpets are good. I've had them occasionally, but they're not super common*, at least from what I've seen.

    *in the US

    are they different from english muffins? they sell english muffins in grocery stores in the midwest, northeast, and the south, at least in my experience. they are very good and i eat them a lot
  18. Crumpets are better, have a different texture, and to my knowledge you aren't supposed to cut them in half.

    they're like really spongy pancakes, right? something something griddle-cooked quickbreads. hmm, now I want to try them.

    relatedly: I've been watching copious amounts of the great british bake-off and wondering if their baking tins are professional-quality (they probably are) and how they compare to average British baking tins. because most bakeware that's available in my grocery or department stores has rounded corners, sometimes dramatically so, not the sharp crisp corners that the bake-off tins have. but maybe I just need to cough up the cash for professional ones? also, in what universe can I get foil-backed parchment paper and conveniently perforated clingfilm, this is groundbreaking
