to tell us what you're working on, share your show & tell, vent, whatever you want...
...this is an open thread. Nothing is off topic.
Other than the foods of your ethnicity, what's your favorite?
I know huh? Funny question. I was thinking about this because I had no friggin' idea what I was going to write about this New Day. I've been beyond busy and rarely even have the time lately to participate on DailyKos. I've been having a time issue...not enough time to do all I need to do. Autumn is like that around here. I did refurbish our wood shed and packed away 2 cords of wood. It took a while to do all that...about 12 hours total.
So I come home and ask smileycreek what should I ask for New Day? Dinner is cooking as we bat it around. As always, she comes up with the perfect question. She's like that you know.
Well, actually we first talked about ObamaCare and the exchanges. We want to know what is the best thing we should do. It turns out...at least as far as we can tell (and she's crazy good at getting the info about stuff...even had a "talk" with a person via the chat room exchange we can do at the Covered California web site http://www.coveredca.com/) that we should stick with our policy that will be transformed into the Silver 70 plan...well that's what we can qualify for (don't we wish we were eligible for the platinum plan!).
Then the question was, other than the cuisine of your own ethnicity, what's your favorite? That's easy for me. The cuisine of my ethnicity is haggis...and pea's porridge (oats and peas cooked together in a large amount, then poured into a drawer to cool and coagulate. Then you cut chunks of that out of the drawer). Not much to like. But mixing oats and peas makes a complete protein at least. Tough scrabble those Scots. So any food of any other ethnicity is preferable!
I love sushi...and Mexican food. When I say Mexican food I mean real Mexican food, not Americanized Mexican food. I also love Thai and Vietnamese food. And I do love fry bread. Ever have real fry bread? Nothing like it. You could live on that for an entire week.
What's your favorite "ethnic" food?
