I thought it may be interesting to tell each other or show each other what we eat from time to time.

For example, this was last night's dinner:



It's 'gan mien' (dry noodles) with some kong-qing-cai (I don't know what that is in English) and some tofu stuff with ginger on top.

There was actually 2 bowls of noodles (one for the wife, one for me) and it cost us about $6 US. It's nicer than it looks. There are veggies and meat in the noodles, and it's kind of got a beef soup stock of some sort mixed into it.

I made Ron and the kids happy last night and made some good old fattening American food. I made chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes, gravy and biscuits. I also made Ron an apple/peach pie with crumb topping. Normally, I don't cook like that, but I felt like surprising them all.

Just had a delicious and fattening meal at On the Border. Some yummy Tex Mex. Doesn't make the tum tum too happy afterwards though. *chugs Pepto*

Gaboman, I was just reading about 11 drinks and foods banned in the U.S., and one that I read about is called Pig's Blood Cake. Ever munched on that??

I eat like a MAN.

Heart attacks, Strokes, let them come. Giant Hamburgers. Pizza. Anything with cheese. When I croak out, they can say what a unhealthy idiot I was. But "they" should be ashamed of themselves for talking about the dead. It's RUDE.

Meanwhile, bring on the hotdogs and Ice cream!

I've had it before but I don't like it. My wife eats it sometimes.

Sherry, sounds like a nice meal! Desert sounds amazing.

I essentially eat like Dave most of the time.

I didn't think it sounded very appetizing. What did it taste like?

It was in a spicy hot pot so it was basically just spicy, but the texture is what people like I think. It's quite firm but when you bite into it kind of bursts.

It doesn't taste like you'd imagine blood would taste, if that helps.

Interesting. If I ever make it to Taiwan, I think I will still pass on them.

You have to at least try different things. At least once. Then you can spend the rest of your life saying "I tried this". Plus, It won't kill you. Not right away, at least.

This is how most people eat it. I don't think I've tried this one.


The one I had is more like this:



Just pretend you don't know what it really is, and you'll be alright.

The one I saw online was more like the first picture. I think I'd be ok eating it that way. I would just pretend its a popsicle or something. Hahaa

No pig blood cake for me. NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's one step away from being a vampire.

In Israel, all the food looked horrible. Lots of vegetables and weirdness, hardly any meat. But it was absolutely delicious. I tried all kinds of nasty looking crap and it tasted awesome. It pissed me off that it was healthy for me, but wow those folks can cook.

I wouldn't mind being a vampire. Just not the glittery kind. Maybe that kind of thinking would make me more inclined to try pig blood cake. Haha

A LOST BOYS kind of vamp? Or the Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise kind of vamp?

If I was an evil creature of the night, I'd go with something like the Blair Witch. I'm a dude, so I'm be the Blair Warlock. I would make teens get lost in the woods and make weird sound and light shows at them. Coolness.

I love the look of the Bell Pepper things and the olive things. Send some over in a care package.

Last night I ate chicken and rice. Just regular white sticky rice, but for the chicken I tossed them in a frying pan with green onions, paprika, oregano, thyme, parsley, and some garlic that I got from my mom's garden. Yum!

Sounds very tasty.

I'm all about herbs in my cooking. I took an herb cooking class through my local Parks and Rec. Got some lemon balm which has passed its prime now, and learned about how to get the most flavor out of your herbs. You've got to 'activate' them. If they are fresh, cut them up as small as you can. If they are dried, rub the herbs between your fingers before adding them to the food. Good tips, I think.

I think I would be tempted to smoke them, ha ha. I never have of course, but I heard oregano would get you high.

Kat, that chicken sounds yummy!!

I made beef enchiladas, New Mexican style, like Brian's mom makes them. Instead of rolling the enchiladas they layer all the ingredients so it's kind of like Mexican lasagna. It's delicious!

The olive things I think were something like capers (I'm honestly not sure). It was salmon underneath. The kid loved that.

The bell pepper things are actually bitter melon, or momordica charantia. I don't like the taste of the fruit itself (it is actually bitter), but the filling was delicious. It was pork and prawn and had some herbs and stuff in it.
