It's so you can add vodka to it and pretend it's a Chu Hai or Strong Zero.

Someone brought a package of the "mystery flavor" Oreos and after having one, I immediately concluded the taste is fruity pebbles.

If their candy tastes as bad as their chocolate does, no thanks.

One of the supervisors brought a package of these to my training class recently. I took one bite of one of those cookies and threw the rest of it away. It was awful.

I'm not a fan of Hershey's in general, but I'd at least try this caramel-peanut-pretzel thing if one showed up. Sounds decent.

Overwhelmed with curiosity, I tried sweet potato pie for the first time in recent memory. Have I had this before? Possibly, but hell if I can remember it. What I can say is that it really is good... I had my doubts that it would stand a chance against my preferred holiday pie, pumpkin, but it's... very, very good. Damn it all.

Also, what the hell does Patti LaBelle have to do with sweet potato pie? Are musicians now claiming regional pastries as their own personal territory?

From what I understand, SPP allows for recipe variations. Maybe more of one spice, less of another. I guess her take is well received?

Patti LaBelle is a good cook in her own right. She cooks for herself and others while on tour. I think she has a cooking show even, now? Her sweet potato pie was legendary in some music circles.

Walmart approached her and asked if she'd work with them to sell it. She did. Im told she was/is quite strict with ingredients and quality control. Now everyone knows how good it is.

That's precisely the pie I had. It took a spill on the floor (as described in the discontent thread) but my mother managed to rescue the filling, and you know what? It's still good! Even if it looks like cooked squash dumped into a cup now.

I guess I shouldn't doubt Patti LaBelle's pastry-making powers. I wouldn't expect a root vegetable to double as a delicious dessert, but she found a way.

I mean sweet potato pie was a thing before Patti LaBelle. But it was mostly a regional thing.

Very southern, and very, very black. I knew a few southern bakers as a kid who wouldn't make sweet potato pie on account of its history as a black food. They wouldn't come out and say it, but they did imply that it was beneath them.

Of course, the concept has been then appropriated in haute southern cuisine -- the fancy bar down the way from me will sell you a cocktail built around whiskey and sweet potato syrup. (they call it a Jake May, after the minor celebrity ballplayer from Wendell, NC)

Pretty good interview about the whitewashing that turned soul food into southern cuisine.

I took my mom out for dinner for her birthday and we went to Main Street BBQ in Lowell. She had the Fried Catfish sandwich and I had the Combo Platter. And it was good!

Her catfish was perfectly flakey and tender. Very nicely done. I had for my sides the mac and cheese and a salad. The salad was probably the worst part of my meal, being small, served with the meal rather than before and had very little lettuce, mostly cucumbers and fresh tomatoes. I know it sounds wrong to complain about fresh ingredients in a salad and about the salad at a BBQ place but....



Anyway, the mac and cheese was good made with real cheese, the ribs were meaty though I should have but some of the sauce on them as they were a little dry, and the pulled pork was nice and moist even before I added the sauce to it (it came without any on it, the regular sauce was tasty, the spicy wasn't very but had a good flavor to it, which is the way I prefer my spicy food). But the real winner was the brisket, which was so moist and tender I could almost cut it with my fork. I gave a piece to my mom and she commented that she should have gone with the brisket sandwich instead. Good cornbread and homemade pickled cucumbers too.

All in all, four and a half stars for meat eaters.

I've had this thought for a long time now, but Japanese Kewpie Mayo tends to be good on almost anything savory for some reason.

Thank you for sharing this article, Ample Vigour. It was quite a good read.

Maybe, but I had a supervisor come down on my head for a color newspaper on my desk with a undressed mannequin. Better safe than sorry.

The 8 Weirdest Gins You Can Buy


Quote:
Anty Gin
If you’ve been wondering how to get a little extra protein in your cocktails, this English gin may be the answer. The product of a partnership between The Cambridge Distillery and the Nordic Food Lab, each bottle of Anty Gin is distilled with approximately 62 wood ants. Those brave enough to order their own bottle will also receive 50 ml of pure wood ant distillate so they can accurately pick out the ant flavors in the spirit. Thanks to the formic acid the ants release, the resulting spirit is apparently quite citrus-forward.

That's slightly terrifying but I have to give them props for the magnificent pun.
