see how much better it is

Post by College Boy » Sat Mar 26, 2011 8:11 pm

When I was a child, I wouldn't eat at any of my friends' houses because all of their recipes were prepared by chef boyardee. Look how much American cuisine has improved!

Dutch people eat Crimp bread which is just a round, compact bread. When I was small, we spread it with Cheez Whiz and crushed potato chips. My DIL thought that sounded horrible until she tried it. Now, my son has to buy her Crimp bread when he comes home. :lol:

There are some things that I prefer to be very plain because they can get in the way of other flavors.

For example - hot dog rolls. There are all sorts of fancy "gourmet" hot dog rolls. But, I prefer the cheap, plain ones. The star is the hot dog - not the bun.

Ice cream sandwiches - I prefer the cheap ones of these too. I once tried a gourmet sandwich that was made with 2 slabs of brownies. Yuck! I love the plain old ice cream sandwiches with the almost-cardboard-like exterior.

I agree, James Coney Island sells em like that. And they are really soft.

Summer is coming, I need to stop thinking about food.

:hmm: True, but I do like potato rolls. I like the sweet flavor with the hot dog. (I eat my hot dogs plain or with chili only.)

Me, too. :highfive:
I guess they are like Oreos that way. They are best eaten together.

Liar! :lol: :teehee:

Eg, I think shrimp is yucky. How anyone can eat those bottom feeders is beyond me. I get sick just THINKING about it. :ohwell:
Like crab and lobster??? :)

:hmm: I can't envision that. What's "Crimp" bread? :dunno:


And guess what I bought a very large can of at Walmart today? :lol: ;)

When you slice it you have a perfect little round bread. It's very compact so it holds up to spreads well.

I think all fish that doesn't have a shell around it is yucky, lobster and fish being my favorite, followed by clams (raw, fried) and oysters. Crab is ok, but the least of my favorites among shellfish. The fact they are bottom feeders doesn't bother me one bit. My step-father treated my mother to lobster at least once a week all their married life, and they were married about 35 years. He lived to be 94 and she lived to be 98. My only concern about shellfish is that I can't afford to buy it more often. :sad:

Sometimes I will try to make myself eat things that are good for me, like regular fish (all kinds) and brocoli. I usually end up throwing most of it away. They just make me naseous.

Breaded or beer battered shrimp deep fried and dipped in tarter sauce! Yummmmm! :drool:

I have a thing for breakfast burgers, although I haven't had it in awhile. Fry a burger, put it on a bun with a hard-yoke fried egg. Top it it with golden-fried hashbowns, melted cheddar cheese, and ketchup! Woo-hoooo! :ohyeah:

Heart-attack on a plate. But man, what a way to go!
