My "snack" for today was a late breakfast. Just got back from shopping, so had a samwich of turkey and ham, roasted peppers (from a jar), romaine, on an Italian-dressing soaked slab of Italian bread. Didn't have the smoked Gouda I kinda like, so had to do without.

When are you gonna open a Deli?? Smile Actually speaking of Sour Cream, I have 2 in the fridge. One already expired July 20 and the other is good till Aug15. I 'm gonna try and make "Grandma's Best Ever Sour Cream Lasagna". Reason...I never knew one can add sour cream to lasagna?? Should be tasty. Innocent

Quite interesting to see snacks from other countries. I’m guessing this cookie is Scandanavian? German?

My typical breakfast consists mostly of hot coffee with milk but no sugar and some dessert. My wife prefers ice-coffee.

This morning : roti (frozen pack of 30 from Pakistan), cream cheese (Philadelphia brand, made in Australia), dates (Sultan brand from Tunisia), walnut and almond (raw nuts from the USA, roasted in our kitchen) cashew nut (from India), coffee beans from Kanya (C1 Kenya AA), milk (UHT milk from New Zealand).

Singapore imports foods from all over the world. No need to waste time and resources in food production; it is more cost-effective to import. This island city state is only about 750 sq km, quite small, with a population of 5.75 million. Can make more money and prosper in developing digital and service economy, and in serving as the regional financial centre.

“Roti”? That’s, like, bread, no? (Had to goggle it.)

Thanks for reminding me, at least. I still got bagels in the freezer and would toast ‘em and soak ‘em in butter, but I forgot I got plenty of cream-cheese, too.

Being bad. First b33r in like 2yrs since I got out to my b33r place.

Had a coupla near-frozen Warsteiner Dunkel (dark) with some Oreos.

Xocolatl and dark b33r go so well together. Grab some Hershey/Nestle Special Dark (whoever makes it) when partaking of the dark dark b33r.

Oh, and whaddya do when you’re out of lunch-meat and can’t make another samwich like was sooooooooo yummy the night before?

Plenty of cheese, only 2-3 slices of ham, lots of leftover Itralian bread. Breakfast hero!

Lightly butter the bread (don’t want it soaked), lightly toast it, turn off the oven but just pull the bread long enough to lay down the cheese on the bread and let it melt from the residual heat. Fry up some scrambled eggs, pull the toasted/buttered/cheesed bread, lay the ham on it to fit, scoop the eggs on top to warm the ham. Devour.

Sooooooooooo goooooooooood.

Damn it, I shouldn’t read this thread. People keep mentioning foods or candies not available here and I develop cravings that can last for days. Now it’s Atomic Fireballs.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

avocado and beans with hot sauce dip with chips, followed by a side of summer caprese made with paccheri pasta tubes with sundried and fresh cherry tomatoes. Thinking about half a choc chip cookie or a thin slice of apple pie for later. Just small portions to get a taste.

Got me beat. LOL

 

I found that I still had a 3pak of romaine, after buying 2 more 3pax (hey, 2fer7, and beautiful, so why not?), so wanted to use up at least some before they get all wilty.

So one “head” or whatever you call it, a small pile of deli murrrcan cheese slices, broken up, and the last coupla tablespoons of French dressing. Hit the spot.

All I’d need is some garlic’n‘butter croutons and it’d be perfect, but ain’t got.

You can’t eat moon pies without an RC cola.

That’s true, it’s the law in Bell Buckle Tennessee, an annual festival if you can find it.

A few years ago i was drinking 1 oz a day apple-cider vinegar mixed with water, then eventually kept using less water until it got down to “neat”. i was having GI problems and probiotics didn’t seem to do anything, so i tried the acv and it seemed to help somewhat. Eventually i got the Dr to give me an Rx and that got me squared away. i still like me some of that Balsamic—i put that s#%@ on everything.

I love ACV with lemon juice and sparkling water. Its also great for digestion and the liver.

Last night I grilled a 1 lb slab of salmon fillet, skin still attached. Slice off the thin portion for separate cooking, apply olive oil & spices, etc. to the big piece, then lay on grill until skin is crispy. Turn off heat and let it sit for about 5 more mins to cook through. You want it just shy of fully cooked, with the center showing an orange tinge instead of pale pink (cooked). Toasted an artisan multi-grain slab of bread. Put the salmon on the bread. A little mayo, lettuce, tomato… Sunk my teeth into it before I could get to a plate… AH, so good!

i’ve never heard of “Glorys”, but at Aldi they sell an identical package that is called “Cherubs”, and they sell other packages of “grape” tomatoes. Years ago we just called them cherry tomatoes as generic for any tiny tomato.

Does anyone know of a traditional Mexican dish made using lots of Roma tomatoes and onions?

@xevious—how long does it take to crisp the skin? i’ve tried in a cast iron skillet and couldn’t get it crisp.

Got hooked on these from a Korean friend. Best snack ever, right after the dearly departed PB Max.

I vaguely recall these bananananana candies made of some kind of ultradense marshmallowy foam, but that tasted, or at least smelled, like banananananananas.

I could go for some of those right now.

Or a frozen Charleston Chew, the big-ass ones you could use as a nightstick.
