    Default Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My! (II)

    That sandwich sounds amazing! I love pretzel rolls, and gouda. And cranberry mustard is phenomenal. I did something similar a few weeks ago. I mixed some chunky cranberry sauce with some hot coarse brown mustard and put it on a turkey/havarti/lettuce sandwich. The tartness/sweetness of the cranberries with the slight heat and acidity of the mustard made a really fantastic blend. You have inspired me to work on that again.

    Alright, since I can't quote the others, I'll just have to try something different.

    First, Amandous, welcome to our little group

    Second. DM, that damn cow's head CAME from a slaughterhouse

    Love the pie and I agree with nonsence, that tail kinda messes it up but hey
    I'd eat it. Tail would have to go to the dogs

    Nonsence, glad the ham test went well. I should become a ham tester myself

    I was at the store yesterday and was gonna buy some pistachios (nuts) but
    could only find small packs WITH spices

    They're too expensive here and I just had a craving for some but didn't want to
    buy a plain pack for 7 bucks

    nbp, never had a pretzel roll I think. That sammich and yours sounds good, WITH
    the only exception being that I hate mustard

    Empath, thank you daddy...

    indeed.. starting all new and fresh thread.. feels at the same time fun and odd. hahah.

    maybe if we ever end up in page 20 or so in this one we could ask one of the mods to kill the previous one and start anew.. 38 pages is indeed longer than needed. all forum boot-up issues aside, it also makes searching something we talked about week or two or month ago, a real difficult to find.. especially if one dont remember what it was and when it was but rememebers that there was some golden nugget there somewhere one needs to find again.. hahah me and my grrrreat memory.

    ----
    never understood nuts.. never got to like any of them. and i know that to some i am slightly allergic to. so as i dont like them its easy to avoid eating them.
    ----
    today im going to go get just some cooked rice.. and from oven: chicken bits with chopped up mushrooms, zuccini, bell pepper and tomato.. all doused with cream. (right after i type this i go and get some)

    today no sandwich.. had nothing fresh or fun to put on top of it this mornin.. so i think i must leave some of the chickenthingy for tomorrow morning to put on my french baguette for breakfast.

    In bush Alaska where I grew up, there would be so much salmon available that people would use it for dog food.

    That is indeed a travesty.

    Smoked salmon is also one of the most delicious things there is. Never understood the tail thing...never had it either though. Just doesn't seem very 'meaty'.

    How the hell was I supposed to know it was an oxtail?

    I LIKE oxtail and I wanna be where the salmon is so abundant you can give it to your dogs. I LOVE fish
    and I've been wanting some property like that for years

    If you search for Mango Chutney , there are 17,461 posts at a very rough guess ... I could be wrong there though , 'cos I haven't counted them , but it's a lot of posts.
    You can narrow it down though by searching for "Lidls Mango Chutney" ...

    The one with the purple label is amazing.

    soon there will be a youtube phenomen...

    march.brown: of mango chutney, the series! (also remember to follow his blog "mango chutneys in lidl, day by day experiences".)

    ROFL.. yeah.. i know i might get flooded by the results of lidls mango chutney if i were to search it..

    sadly, i just cant find the chutney here in our LIDL! -will be waiting their next "indian cousine" week. (i bet in UK lidl has indian dishes by demand all the time, because atleast in london to my tourist eyes there seemed to be many indian looking people living there.)

    -----
    oxtail? i saw it as an tail of devil or goblin of sorts.. gremlin or hobgoblin.. hah.. nver saw an ox in it. hhahahahh. nice cake though.. what was it like? what was it inside? chokolate cake or what?

    xmas presents are pretty much in line now.. i only need to figure out couple little ones and hope that the ones i ordered will arrive in time. friday i had no idea what to buy to people.. 24 hours later i was in groove, you know, in tha zone! buying and ordering things left and right.. and on sunday evening i was where i am now.. almost done! hahah.

    all i hope now is is that postal services run almost normally. not asking much, within 2-3days of the regular timeframe will do.

    Let me first comment on some previous stuff. First, EVERYTHING just about tastes better with cream bro. I cooked liver a bunch of years ago for me and a buddy and his gf was there.
    Do you want some I asked. No, I hate liver she said.
    Well my buddy said, you need to taste THIS liver (with cream). Man, she ate the hell outta that liver

    A little while ago, I had a Philly steak and cheese sammich at one of the local places and it was about the worst one I've ever had.
    No taste and greasy as hell

    Speaking of Nonsence and nuts, has anyone here tried PINE nuts? From the pine cones?



    Very small but VERY tasty

    Yup, I've had 'em. They're pretty good actually. Have you ever had corn nuts? Those are fun to eat as well.

    Second, not sure about corn nuts? Pics? Oops, yes, I have (just looked them up) and yes, good stuff.

    Look what I just found

    http://www.nutsonline.com/nuts/

    I was looking through THIS section and I swear, my mouth started watering AND as I'm writing this, I also thought about
    the dried fruit and my damn mouth started watering again
    I love fruit (even more than nuts)
    http://www.nutsonline.com/driedfruit/

    By the way, these are possibly the BEST nuts I've had in my life. My in laws brought some back for me from a cruise
    they were on some years ago and they also stopped in Hawaii. Guess the ones they brought were fresh, 'cause they
    were friggin' amazing. Here's a link to the manufacturer..and yes, the ones with sea salt were the ones I got.

    Gotta tell ya George, when you post a link to a place called nutsonline.com, I was a little concerned to click it on my work computer.

    But yeah, those nuts looked delicious. The pine nuts reminded me of the pesto my mom makes. Holy cats, pesto is so good. Get some good crusty bread and just smear it on there. Oh heavens, that is good stuff. If you've not had pesto, get some, or make some. It's not hard. Grab your Cuisinart and load in fresh basil leaves, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, Parmesan, pine nuts, blend smooth and enjoy.

    Macadamias are the most delicious 'cuz they're the worst for you.

    Good! My work here is done...

    I've got a little mailing list where I send out funny stuff ('n other stuff) that I get to a selected few and the first thing I tell them is, "Do NOT, NEVER EVER
    open an e mail from me in front of other people"
    That would be MY disclaimer

    Dunno what Pesto is here but in Spain (or rather, at my local bar in Torremolinos), it was some kind of fried meat and veggies. Great stuff by the way

    Toasted pine nuts in a salad are very nice indeed.

    I put a jar of Marchs' special reserve Mango Chutney in the trolly last night at Lidl. Mrs Noggin says 'why the hell did you get this? You don't like mango chutney, remember?' to which I replied - it's to keep March Brown quiet... So she says 'who the hell is March Brown'..... Anyway I am hoping it will be good to go with turkey leftovers.

    If it was the purple label Lidls mango chutney , it will be perfect with turkey leftovers or rightovers or any other turkey stuff ... Even the milder Green label one will be OK ... I loved it till I discovered the purple one.

    If you have the green (for wimps) Lidls mango chutney , you could blend the green label with the purple label to get your own favourite blend ... Never tried it yet as I now use the purple label type ... The youngest Grandson (7) loves the green label one , so we have to keep some in stock just for him ... I haven't tried him on the purple one yet , but some time soon I will let him try it ... Hopefully he won't like it , but knowing my luck , he will ... Will keep you all posted on his maturing taste for things oriental.

    The general idea of "Turkey procurement" is to get the biggest one that will fit into the oven ... This is just in case the weather changes and you can't get out to the Indian takeaway ... We have a stock of assorted jars of Madras and other curry sauces for just such an eventuality and "too much turkey" can be used up easily ... Magic.

    Our next lot of visitors are coming on Friday for a few days and then the family will all be with us for Xmas lunch ... I have been warned not to use any Mango chutney on that meal so I will have to plaster the red jam on it ... I love that too.

    Mrs M-B is getting fed up of Xmas as she has had to make several Xmas lunches for our assorted visitors ... She says that every year though ... I've suggested that we go away for Xmas , but she says that she loves being at home at that time of the year ... I don't understand her reasoning !

    I somehow managed to end up being the xmas lunch cook this year. I don't even like my in-laws. Last year I stayed home with the cats and had a great time.

    I have laid down some rules, the most important being - at 3:30pm everyone has to go home.... Humbug.

    The 3:30 time sounds like a helluva an idea.

    I just realized something. I had afternoon tea in Cornwall on a Sunday around 1986. It was great. A whole damn table full of food
    and cool people

    I like Mrs. Noggin already. Hilarious.

    I am picturing you sitting there with the cats watching soccer by yourself, drinking a cocktail, marveling at the quietness of the house and how you don't have to deal with your family. Hilarious.


    ****************************
    Had to stop for beer today, as I was running low. (Didn't get carded either... )

    While I was at the grocery store, I looked for mango chutney. In the ethnic foods area, I found two different ones. I bought this one. "Luxury". Had to be good.






    Not as delicious as I had hoped. I really liked that spicy shredded mango chutney a couple weeks ago. This one is green and smooth. I was really hoping for the best. It went on a turkey sandwich today, and I wasn't in love. It's ok, but too heavy on the fennel for my taste. I'm not really a fennel fan. I think I'm gonna have to try again with a different one.
