    Be patient. It might take months for the hat to do its magic, but it will. Just keep wearing it and making the monthly subscription payments and all will be well.

    I'm not really a boudain eater,but it's good, and alot of people in Texas and Louisiana loves it.Boudain consist of pork ,liver ,rice ,jalapenos and all kinds of spices and it's squeezed into like a sausage. It's a good snack and some people eat it with crackers.If you've never had it before and you're in any one of these states,give it a try.You will not regret it.

    Wow, that sounds really good. When I think of Louisiana and sausage, I think of Andouille sausage, but I definitely have to look into Boudain!

    You can find package Boudain at your local supermarket, but I wouldn't suggest it. Not your first taste test.Unless it was freshly made.Where ever your at, you may have to do some recon.Down here, it's as prevalent as hamburgers.You just have to find a place that knows what they are doing.

    You know what, I have the exact same problem with Andouille sausage. Any brands that I buy up here in New England taste nothing like what is offered in Louisiana.

    LOL, I have a colleague in Dallas and we often joke about him sending me some good BBQ while I send him some Legal Seafood Clam Chowder in dueling care packages. Perhaps we can start a "care package club" for regional foods. :)

    That would be a win-win for our taste buds.

    That sounds amazing! I tried something similar when I was traveling in Romania. They like very fatty food there. And when we stopped at a tavern along the way, we tried their dish of the day. It was similar to what you described, but I think it was their traditional cuisine. I'm not much of a pork eater, but for the sake of experimentation, I thought I'd try it. I think this is the kind of food that someone who has tasted it once will never forget haha.

    I'm not much of a cook, but I'm trying. Made waffles with apple for the first time yesterday. Great experience, my wife loved it haha. Couldn't upload a photo here, but I took a screenshot of the photo (I always find a way out of a situation).

    Looks great! I love waffles. My wife has a new waffle iron that makes one large round waffle, instead of multiple square waffles like yours. All good, of course!

    My wife wanted one of these waffle iron too but I couldn't find any budget options unfortunately. Could you tell me which model you got?

    We have the Cuisinart Classic Waffle Maker which can be found online at USD$30. There are other wafflemaker brands that are 2-3x that cost.

    I am not one much for potato chips and even less for popcorn. However, the wife found popcorn from Indiana (part of corn country, I suppose) that is a delight. It is lightly sweet and lightly salty. Definitely worth trying if you can find it.

    On instagram yesterday saw a video of street food being made in India. For me it was strange and unhygienic. I realize that most people in this country don't have the resources to buy more expensive products to cook delicacies from five-star restaurants, but even tourists from other countries enjoy Indian street food. How do you do it? I don't understand at all what could be delicious about a simple chowder in a dirty pot that has been poured by dirty hands into a crumb of bread. Is it edible? Indian food is very strange.

    I have only seen videos of street food in India, as well. But the food looks great and, obviously, millions and millions of people eat it every day. If there were significant outbreaks of food poisoning and illness, word would spread quickly and the street food business would wither away. I suspect that generations of street food vendors have the food safety issue figured out.

    Undeniable. It seems to me now that the kind of videos I wrote about are specifically so designed to appeal to the public with their "originality" to amuse all these people.

    The only dish I was able to taste was Egg Bhurji Pav. Sort of scrumbled egg with onions, ginger garlic, chilies and spices. Pretty good for indian food! It's served with bread or rice for satiety. Pretty cheesy but cooked in their traditional style.

    I'm also blown away by their spices. It's a separate part of the cuisine that I've always had a love for. We have 4 shelves in our kitchen full of spices for every taste and every dish. For this I am grateful to Indian cuisine. food.jpg

    That dish looks excellent. I am definitely going to have to visit our favorite Indian restaurant soon. :)
