i eat lots of rollmop herrings
or peanut butter and mayo sandwiches, yum.
you sick fuck
i kid you not.
i thought i was the only one
m-i-e, yr my new pal
if you use smooth peanut butts
and all the branches and stuff from a bunch of grapes. and orange peels and bits of banana skin. everyone else thinks ima loop-de-loop
the upkeep's a bitch.
it's just more practical.
I do as well (the apple), I don't eat the crappy parts of other fruit.
And he eats the skins of kiwi fruits too, even though they're furry.
Looks like there's a handful of us about. Woo.
I DO THIS TOO
Do they think you are a fruit-loop (badoom-tish)
this is like one of mt fav foods of all time
or sandwiches without lids
Alcock recently introduced me to pierogi. Thank Christ for the Polish.
Dumplings with various crap in - you find them in Commie shops (a term I am coining to refer to any convenience store catering to the peoples of the former Soviet bloc). I like the beef ones. There are also sauerkraut and mushroom varieties. Mostly I fry them in whatever sauce I have in the cupboard and serve with some kind of pasta for an impressively carb-filled man meal. http://tinyurl.com/yv6oh7
Yes. Giant ravioli made of unleavened dough. Tasty.
I think I've had them before, just never knew their name.
HOW THE HELL DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT A PIEROGI IS?
They're dumplings with cheese in. I wonder if it's the same thing.
^ This is one of mine.
i had no frame of reference for how big they should be so i made them cornish pasty size and got laughed at by my russian friends.
aka sweet chesnut puree. I'm stocking up on that beauty when I go to france over easter. Mmmmm
i'm not huge on sweet things though
or proper cream. It's massively sweet though, so its best just to have a wee bit. And it comes in awesome tins
I think you can get it in Selfridges, sometimes Sainsburys, if you're really lucky. (has not researched shops that stock it AT ALL)
i'll have a hunt for it
i just did a google for "sainsbury's creme de marrons"
and the top result featured the quote "Proper relationships are for joint excursions to Sainsbury’s; adultery is for licking crème de marrons off your lover in a hotel suite when he’s meant to be at a conference in Basingstoke."
i think i've had some in france actually, very nice.
when at home.
but some of it tastes quite nice. and they do good kebabs. this one is my fav http://shabakskitchen.blogspot.com/2008/09/ash-e-reshteh.html
also: the woman whose blog that is looks rather hot
with milk, cinnamon and sugar or bananas or just butter or salty with mushrooms. its amazing.
or is that more a prune thing?
do people in this country eat this? It can't be overly common, I wouldn't have thought.
or you eat this, or what???
As easy as cheese on toast and far superior.
they are yummy though so score a few points for that
actually, you've just given me severe quesidilla craving. fuck you
i bought 8 tins. i like eating it cold and you can feel the ridges from the tin on the pease when you're eating it. also, a little bit of juice runs from it. yum.
and i eat rice porridge. foreign to the max
knew what that was going to be before I opened it!
whoever they are, they're missing out
And those people SUCK.
potato scones on a roll in the morning - A GOOD START.
anyone else who knows what tartex is and appreciates its awesomeness can be my bff
i remember tartex on toast as a kid. also: tartex with garlic and herbs, or tartex with red pepper, or tartex with mushrooms.
i've not had tartex in yonks. kinda want some now
tartex on toast is the absolute king, mmmmm. My favourite is the olive one. NOM.
the mexican one is my favourite
fuul (pronounced fool)
lebanese food is pretty good.
although i think it's more generic middle eastern as they have kusheri for example which i used to eat in egypt all the time
i've had fuul a few times too!!!!!!!!
they deliver that shit in lebanon, along with some chiclets to freshen your breath afterwards.
there you go champ
or first-hand account
fuul we eat at breakfast/lunch (brunch) on sundays. my dad makes it better than my mum. her version is too watery, his has more garlic.
maloukieh is like leaves and shit. real nice. the egyptian version is toilet.
fasoolieh is my favourite, especially if there's lamb shanks in there and it's stewed for ages.
mjadarra is alright.
kibbeh i don't like actually, dunno why i said it. you can eat it raw (nayeh).
kousa is nice, stuffed courgettes and things like that. nice if the sauce is minty.
wara'enab is great. also called dolma and is like arab finger food, eaten at picnics a lot.
it will make me a happy man, although probably also a fatty man
Totally NOMsome. I wish I knew more about it and got to eat it more often
i ate lots of metal like Mr Mangetout
it would be + 1,000,000 man points
in like 3/4 of the meals i make.
scrambled eggs for example, ahhhh it's so good
i haven't in a while because i've been lazy with cooking, but when i do make it, it's delicious.
seriously. i meat people who eat more smack than tofu
most of it isn't that exotic, onigiri, miso soup and daifuku, but they all call baps barm cakes so they're idiots.
and then dips bread into the juices in the pot, it's disgusting.
in its vinegary, lovely goodness
I hope that's a useful contribution to this thread.
surefire winner, i betcha
Sounds wrong, tastes right.
apart from usual greek/turkish foods specific to east london/north-east london shops
i live with someone who thinks cous cous with vegetables is exotic so that makes me feel somewhat better
olive sandwiches (just olives nothing else)
callos (tinned also as its pretty hard to make here without going to a butchers)
I bet the smell as you open the can is terrifying
Miss Lady has a friend who buys one new thing every she goes into a supermarket to do a proper 'shop'. I like this idea.
My Mum did used to make me some odd meals as a kid though. When I went to uni I was surprised that no-one had ever heard of a 'Hawaiian Sandwich.' This is a piece of toast with some gammon on top, then two pineapple rings, then covered in cheese (which must be melted under the grill). Hawaiian sandwich. Nice going Mum. I would eat one now though.
you didn't eat the hawaiian sandwiches at school?
i do the one new thing everytime i shop. it's resulted in some illnesses. dried habanero chillies. my mouth was numb for three hours. i'm waiting on a good discovery.
I bought some scotch bonnets from my local greengrocer man the other day because they looked pretty. Massive bag for a quid. I put about a quarter of one into a big batch of carrot and coriander soup I was making and it now has HELL OF kick. They're really distinctive tasting compared to other chillies: RECCOMNNEDDNE
I'd say you've all heard of it, but don't appreciate its goodness
White pudding too
Pepperpot with pig's trotters
Saltfish and bakes
and also pickled lemons. just generally. out of the jar.
Indian stuff my mum sends
Like dhokra, patra, chakri, sukkerpara etc etc
Its good food
Won't be going back.
Serve with a pint of ale in an old pub. Magic
....not sure why.
i bet nobody's heard of anpan
I've started using it as an alternative to mince in bolognaise style pasta, surprisingly good.
Nah, never heard of it - you must be making it up.
Thanks for the tip <3
and foul medames
I eat hairy bittercress and cleavers and dandelion flowers and hawthorn leaves and haws and yarrow frequently.
I lick lime leaves for their sugar and eat lime flowers and roses, thistle pith, willowherb pith, birch leaves, daisies, bullaces, sloes etc.
I also eat something poisonous called bittersweet, but you should never do this cos it is poisonous and you can hurt yourself.
