I don't know how many other cities have it, but here in Madison we have a joint called Noodles (yes, i know it's a chain)

three dishes are phenominal.

Penne Rosa
Pesto Cavatappi
Pasta Fresca

i order each with feta and beef. with a rustic roll on the side.

best part about the place is that i don't feel too bad about eating there cuz it's fairly healthy.

due to the whole spinich thing, i've been replacing it with broccoli. still happy.
had it for lunch today.

I dunno... chinamen tend to be rather thin, so i imagine that they would be sorta stringy and too tough to chew...

How do you make the pickles? I would like to try that.

And i was also wondering what marbled means in relation to steak, and what kefir is?

Pickles soaked in tabasco sauce. (then placed in a Bloody Mary with extra tabasco.)

Or, you take a brick of cream cheese, you melt it in the microwave, and you dip chips in it.

marbled means veined with fat. you want to see fat running through your steak because it will be more tender juicy and tasty. if it looks 98% red it won't be as good.

kefir is a fermented milk product (like yogurt and cheese) made with a master seed/mother culture called kefir grains or granules

there's a ton of info here

to make pickles you need:
bay leaf
fresh dill
mustard seed
peppercorns
sea salt
whey
water.
pickling cucumbers (no more than four-five inches long, split in half lengthwise)

dissolve four tablespoons of salt in four cups of water

pack the cucumbers tightly in a quart mason jar. put in 1-3 sprigs of dill around the sides pour a tablespoon of peppercorns in, a teaspoon of mustard seed a bay leaf and if you want to give them a spicy kick a small dried chilipod

add one 1/4 cup of whey, then pour the salt water in to fill the jar until the pickles are completely covered in liquid, leave about an inch of space between the top of the jar and the lid. Put in a warm dry spot for three days then move to refrigeration. Your pickles are ready after three days but they get better as they age in the refrigerator.

the salt water controls the fermentation and the whey acts as a starter culture, creating a faster fermentation and lowering the pH of the solution so that pathogenic bacteria cannot survive.
So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

I know, right? 70% cocoa dark chocolate on espresso beans should be illegal because of the caffeine rush!

for the first two years of college when i was an english major before i switched to writing, we used to pop those fuckers like pills during brit lit. smillner (that's one thing i loved about ithaca, no one went by their real name. everyone was given either hacked up versions of their real name, or ironic or symbolic nicknames. it was lovely) used to bring in BUCKETS of the things, and we'd haul it across the room, cramming handfuls into our mouths and waxing intellectual about chaucer.



...i did actually have some good times in college.





to keep with the theme of the thread: tortilla chips and queso. yum.

My mom's homemade chocolate chip cookies. Specifically her's because they're better than other people's homemade cookies and you don't have to be related to her to think that.

Any meat cooked on a barbeque using charcoal or preferably wood is going to taste a lot better than it's equivalent on a gas grill. That's usually associated with ribs and steaks, but even something as simple as hamburgers and hotdogs tastes better when properly cooked.

I have to say the same thing about my mother's homemade chocolate chip cookies. They are to die for. My friends actually admit that they are better than their mother's cookies (and they are even in their mother's presence when they say this). That has to mean something....
