Oh hell yes. There's a Peruvian restaurant in Montreal that gives you a bowl of these (well, plantain chips) and this super excellent hot sauce to dip them in. I'm usually more excited about these than I am for the main courses we order when we go there.

Not For Me. Dried banana for me loses the creamy subtlety of a good* banana, and instead the musky undertones become more prominent and it gets chokingly sweet. Ew ew ew. It's also why I don't like banana candy - the myriad flavor compounds that make up the taste of a regular banana get shoved aside in favor of only one in 'nanner candy.

For some reason I can deal with plantain chips okay, probably because they're less sweet? But I wouldn't order them on their own.


*good = slightly green at the ends

My goodness! This gooey brie and this dark chocolate! Delight!

Try this sandwich sometime. It may sound crazy, but its good stuff! Super rich though!

Take some good bread, pile on brie and chocolate, and also some basil. Then panini that sucker until its toasty and melty.

Brisket is one of those things that can be either really good or really bad. I don't say barbequed brisket because if you aren't BBQing it you're doing it wrong.

Considering corned beef is a brisket, I'd have to take issue with that statement.

I hate bananas but somehow plantains fix everything I don't like about them. So I endorse this post.

This is because the bananas we get are bland as fuck because they preserve the best.

I fully intend to try these and review them. What they never counted on is having someone from where the stuff originated (minus the Canadian part) judging the quality of their wares.
As promised.

Tomorrow is my birthday, and as usual that means weird homemade pizza I could never get everyone else to allow on any other occasion. I'm really looking forward to trying pulled pork pizza tomorrow, and I don't doubt that today's fasting will make it taste even more awesome than it would normally be.

Had a go at one of those homemade Red Lobster cheddar biscuit recipes. Oh man, perfect. Now I never have to go to Red Lobster again.

What recipe did you use? I used one I found online once and it wasn't quite right.

It was in the form of a rage meme comic for some reason, but it was basically just Bisquick, water and shredded cheddar, with butter, garlic & onion power, salt and parsley brushed on top once baked.

You can even cut out the Bisquick by mixing 1 cup flour, 1.5 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a tablespoon of melted butter/margerine.

I find the best results for Red Lobster biscuits in specifically using garlic salt, rather than garlic powder.

The Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings flavor is awful and damn near inedible.

Good thing I only ate about 3 of them before tossing the bag. The flavor itself might be okay on a regular Dorito chip, but the "Hey! Let's emulate staleness!" thicker chip made it terrible.

Speaking of soft drinks, we went to Ikea this weekend to look at cheap furniture. Afterwards we ran through the food mart, and while I was loading up on sprat fillets and chocolate, my wife found me a bottle of Julmust, the "Swedish Festive Drink". It's a cola type drink that is dredging up memories of Josta from the mid-90's. It's got more 'bite' than regular cola, closer to a good root beer. It's definitely not an everyday drink, and the Swedes save it for Christmas. It tastes like a cold weather soda too, and the bottle has a fun South Park version of Santa on it.

I tried two different varieties of the "Jacked" chips and I can tell you they certainly got the name right! How you could make Doritos that terrible is a feat.

1.To drink Ikea soda, first remove cap A.
2. Insert bottle top B into mouth slot C.
3. Lift bottom of soda bottle (D) to cause gravity to move soda into mouth slot C.
4. Swallow using throat muscles* (not pictured).
