    I can't believe we haven't had this thread, at least post-forum-wipe. Slackers... though I don't think we need to post pics.

    Just finished some homemade faux-Thai sate chicken on rice. Nice zing to it.

    Just finishing some Rice chicken with Curry, while my gf had Rice chicken with Sweet-Sour sauce :thumbsup:

    PS: added a few chocolate easter eggs as "desert" ;-)

    Leftover salad accouterments from taco salad night the other day. I think i'll take a chicken breast and throw it on the foreman so i don't have to do a lot of work. then it's romaine, bean salad, green salsa, some onions, and maybe some cheese. Possibly an avocado if it's ready.


    Both of your asian meals sound good, maybe I'll do some stir fry tonight. I have rice and fish sauce, chicken and ginger. a little scrounging and I could put something decent together. might need to run and get broccoli and coconut juice. It's been forever, anyone have a good recipe i can cheat off?

    I made bread for the first time in a while, yesterday. Turned out pretty okay, fluffy, but still with good density.

    Today I made sweet & sour and shrimp satay, was okay too. Sauce had a little too much vinegar-y taste, but good color.

    Yesterday I made some pork chops that I topped with fried eggs over easy. It was amazing. It could've been better with some sauteed onions.

    Blended pecan shakes with walnut and almond. Without them, as I mentioned elsewhere, I would have to eat triple what the guy in the picture above eats just to avoid losing 5 pounds every day.

    I demand a picture for each mention of a dish!

    Last Saturday, I had Königsberger Klopse :cloud7:

    [​IMG]

    It's the special ingredients and the caper sauce which distinguishes them from mere meatballs. I think I mention them in each food thread.

    I hade a döner plate yesterday, with chicken and fries:

    Today I'll have crispy duck in an Asian (Korean ?) restaurant. I think they have the one with peanut-coconut-milk sauce on their menu of the day.

    Trust a mod to decide to change the thread's original terms. Jeesh.
    Oh, I don't care if we have pics or not, really. Seriously, though, I think that recent social thing where people post pictures of their food is... well, a bit creepy.

    Additionally, I didn't want this to risk forum policy violation because pictures lead to advertising. Like this:

    I really like the Cheddar BBQ, and just finished one. It's like loose, salty oatmeal clusters with peanuts. I'm not really wild about sweets (of any variety).

    I just had a very agreeable McD's vanilla shake. The only trouble is it seemed to attract a bunch of young men from outside somewhere. They seemed to be doing quite well for themselves, certainly more affluent and fulfiiled than me. I was offered training but I didn't like the obligatory payment demanded.

    Anyway, the boys are waiting so I had better put the heating on. Brrrrr!

    I think the question why people eat that instead of drinking a cup of coffee is related to the question why cats prefer dry cat food to self-caught mice.

    You are free to trust jmerv instead, of course.

    Perhaps it makes a few people happier, so I retract the word "demand" and add a "please".

    Regarding what's advertising and what's not, it's usually enough to use common sense and stay a bit away what would be the borderline for you. You have the first, but I doubt it would be enough fun for you to do the second :smug:

    Safety in numbers.
    There's a nice skit somewhere out there where a metrosexual is taking pictures with his iPhone of his dinner - rather than eating it. I can't recall what show it's from... but WE DON'T NEED NO STEENKING PICHURS!



    True enough. Plus Loz would have had to post some pics from McWurg.

    Oh jeez, now not only do I have to remember what I put in stuff, but I have to make it look pretty too? Food Pron is a lot of work!

    Simply put, I think it leads to far too many problems:

    Besides, the inevitable hijack would be unavoidable:

    For everything imaginable, there's probably porn of it someshere in the internet, so because there's porn involving food, it's not a good idea to post food pics? That doesn't make sense for me.

    I can assure you that I'm no metrosexual. Besides, I don't even have a cellphone, digital camera or whatever. The pictures are from Google.

    But why? And who's these "we"? I haven't seen a crowd gathering behind you so far :p

    No cell phone? and i thought I was the luddite with my LG Envy. I went in to a store to get a new charger, and the guy laughed at me. If I was a violent person, I would have punched him.


    Jokes on him though. this thing does everything i want, and only stuff i want. it has an actual keyboard so i can text (and text to email), and speaker phone so i can do conference calls in my car. Also, it has a camera in case i need to take a quick note of something. My verizon bill is ~$40 a month. I'm not paying more than twice that for words with friends, when i have an ipad already.

    Anyway, I'm thinking I'm going to do a fruit smoothy today for lunch. I haven't done the smoothie thing since it got cold. I wonder if that healthy gamer guy is still around. haven't seen him.

    I mentioned it because jmervyn doen't have a cellphone as well IIRC, that leaves less opportunities for counter-arguments :)

    Correct; it's against my religion. Pagers are the playthings of Satan.
