The Food Topic
« on: September 20, 2012, 05:10:20 AM »
Not to be confused with the "Fast Food" topic or the "Kraft Easy Mac" topic.

So...  Food.  All kinds of food.  Fast food, slow food, moderately-paced food that makes you honk your horn in the middle of the freeway because it's not quite going the same speed as all the other food...  Good food, bad food, acceptable food...  Food!  Food is a wonderful thing.  And that's why I decided to open this topic.  That, and I didn't think my eating habits belonged in the "What Are You Thinking?" topic since it's neither a thought (per se) nor intended to be a game.

So!  To start the topic, every once in a while, I just gotta have an omelet.  And so, me and my microwave omelet maker made one.  Here's what I put in it:

Pre-cooking (all ingredients shaken vigorously in a mixing container)
- Two jumbo eggs
- A shot of whole milk
- Chili powder
- Wasabi powder
- Garlic salt

Post-cooking cycle
- Sliced deli pepperoni
- Sliced Swiss cheese

Post-cheese-melting heating cycle
- Salt
- Pepper

I have to say, this was a smelly omelet, but a damn fine one.  It was quite good.  It had kind of a smooth flavor despite all the volatile ingredients.  Heh heh.

It sounds delicious.

Right now, I'm eating ice cream.  Peanut Butter Jumble, to be precise.  I have a tub of candy corn and a tub of candy pumpkins in my cupboard, but I'm not touching them.  Nor am I touching the delicious chocolate Dark Side cookie that's in the same cupboard.  Well, not unless I do a whole bunch of exercise afterward to work off the fattening deliciousness.

You're lucky I still have ice cream left. :P

Let me go clear off the couch so you'll have a place to stay...

You know that in Bizarre Foods, Andrew Zimmern chickened out on eating a durian.  I have one thing to say about that.

Pussy.

I've eaten a durian.  I bought one at an Asian grocer, cut that thing up (by an open window, with the fan running) and ate the delicious flesh inside.  It tasted pretty darn good for something that smelled of damp, moldy gym socks.

Oh?  Going by that, I'd probably like it.  I've eaten kim chi before and quite enjoyed it, despite its really strong aroma.  I don't quite remember the flavor since it was years ago, but I know it was really good!

On the topic of exotic fruits, lychees are pretty nice too
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

As for omelets I eat them either sweet (with loads of sugar) or spicy, with black pepper, curry powder, and mushrooms. I also add sparkling mineral water, it makes the omelet very fluffy.
Today, for dinner I had rice with red pepper, cayenne pepper, and curry powder. Basically, the hotter the better.

... I'm going to have to try spicy-sweet omelets.  That sounds really delicious.
And I love cramming all sorts of crazy spices into my rice!  Rice by itself is pretty delicious, but flavoed rice is just om nom nom...   *o*

On an unrelated topic, I am currently sipping machine-made hot chocolate.  I don't know what's in it beside "hot" and "chocolate," but it's rich, creamy, and damn good on a cold day like today.

For the fall season I make Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies with cream cheese icing for filling. Addictively delicious.

Ooooo... You have to mail me a box of them!

As for me... I gave in to temptation and got some chocolate lava crunch cakes from Domino's.

I have this desire to make my own Perogy Pizza with all the fixings. Potatoes, sour cream, heapings Cheddar and Mozzarella, some green onions, and maybe a little bacon. I even found this cornmeal pizza dough I want to try out.

Also... for some odd reason I had this idea for a Thanksgiving pizza for a while. Put on some ingredients like leftover turkey (though methinks chicken would suffice), potatoes, and a cranberry BBQ dipping sauce.
Come and read some Thoughts of a Platypus

I might just do that, Quickie. My family will eat them, but they don't tear into them like they do with m&m cookies. I just find that making them with the pumpkin spice for the fall is seasonably appropriate and I enjoy baking anyway. >> I should go to Wal-Mart after work and get the ingredients tomorrow.

For some reason, I'm discussing insect cuisine on Star Wars Fanon.

Have you ever been to The Rainforest Cafe? You can get these like chimichanga things full of ants, oh man it's so good.

Haven't been to one, as I doubt I'll be able to find one within reasonable travel distance.  However, a local candy store does sell chocolate-covered ants.

I hear that they're a good source of protein. Although I never tried bugs... I don't think I can muster the courage too.

I had a cinnamon sugar pretzel at work this evening. Was delicious. X3

Where do you live, Quickie? There was one back where I lived in PA, and they're pretty common, for being as niche as they are.

Rainforest Café: You're not paying for the food.  You're paying for the animatronics.  :3

I live in Gettysburg.  If there's one in Harrisburg or York, I may see if I can persuade a friend to take me there.
