    That seems kind of fishy to me, what?
    Whatever floats your boat

    Lenfer, I'm jealous of all the chocolate you're having. Please be kind to share
    And now for something completely different.

    Just had those pork steaks. I decided to grill them after all because someone decided to microwave one for a snack the other day. Made some home-made steak sauce to go over them with regular BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, mustard, and molasses. They didn't turn out tough at all.

    Last night, I did something with some chicken thighs where I dunked them in milk and honey (mixed together) so that a breadcrumb-oatmeal-Herbes de Provence mixture would stick to them, and then I baked them. It was good, but I should have turned them over half-way through so that the skin wouldn't have been so tough and the bottom wouldn't have been so mushy. Also should have used a little less honey in the milk-and-honey mixture.

    In case you're wondering, yes, I am the head cook of my home. Now that I'm unemployed (okay, I've never actually been employed), I'm the one cooking dinner almost every night. Every other week or so, I have to resort to hamburger/tuna helper for a few nights because we've run out of real meats by then. We only go into town for grocery shopping (50 miles away) once every two weeks, on payday. This previous Thursday, we got plenty of good stuff, so I've been doing a bit more with dinner than I usually do.

    I want one! Belgian, eh...my favs, and I don't know why other than taste, are Dutch. They come in these tall pentagonal shaped cardboards stacked upon each other...let me look for them...found 'em!... granted, I love a good Godiva truffle and the $100 a pound stuff from whatever-country as well but these are my favorites...that and anything from Donofrio in PE and Karaliskas in LT...

    ...oh, I had Aji de Gallina last night...

    A gooseberry yoghurt which had a 'Use By' date of 17th August which meant it was more than two weeks beyond its date and it was perfectly fine!!!!!!

    I took it out of the fridge, peeled off the foil & sniffed; it smelled fine & it tasted fine. What did we do before 'Use By' & 'Sell By' dates? We could tell by looking at something if it was still OK to eat. I've never seen any proof that these dates have actually saved lives or serious illness. They are the cause of so much perfectly edible food being thrown away & have made manufacturers of packaging very rich.

    The craziest 'Use By' date I saw was "Rock Salt - guaranteed 2,000 years old" Use By etc

    Rant over

    I actually wanted to crack open a can of expired campbell chicken noodle soup, but the rust and tiny oxidized holes on the can puts me off.

    Having this now.

    I don't want to get my hands dirty eating these, so now my gums kinda hurt biting into this inconveniently designed bar of chocolate!
    Anyone care to enlighten me on how to tackle this choco bar?

    Now a whole lab is not enough to determine if food is OK, with all the food additives they put in it, it might not be adequate to call it food in the first place! As the wise vegetable said:

    Look at the ingredients of so-called *healthy low-fat spread* & compare with the ingredients of butter. My tip of the day: If you want to make butter healthier, just eat slightly less of it.

    Back to cheese and bread and wine.
    I took time off from work so my usual Friday treat got anticipated to Thursday.

    Today = Stilton, Asiago, Morbier, Saint Marcellin. Rosemary and olive oil French bread. Conte di Bregonzo Amarone della Valpolicella 2008. Figs. Dark chocolate with ginger.

    This all during an attempt to watch Ligeti's Le Grand Macabre, but I had problems with the bootleg DVD (one I bought before I decided that I wouldn't patronize these things any longer). Very frustrating. The image froze (and I was enjoying it so much!).
