What to expect at a Nepalese restaurant?

Try a chicken kati roll.
(Allow it to cool so you then can enjoy the complex flavors more).

Non-tomato based pasta dishes that can be made ahead of time

Besides your hubby,
Israeli couscous salad would be your perfect companion that day. Congrats.

Best Pizza Rustica in Westchester

Tarry Market would be a good choice. (Guessing $20 - $25 range).

Israeli couscous salad is very friendly and very forgiving.
Make it in advance and walk away to do other tasks.

Stuff you miss at the market

Grocery stores were all closed on Sundays and 24-hour stores were unheard of. Niceties abounded: courteous cashiers, smart grocery baggers, knowledgeable deli counter workers, S&H Green Stamps, cigarette machines near the exits, etc.

Cartilage in Calamari?

Right. Leaving it in there is so amateurish.
It's a collar stay the size of an emery board. You can't miss it.

Naming a Cheese Filled Bun

Use an obscure name so it will invite a series of questions from *new* patrons.
A four cheese creation should be dubbed ... "Killer Rat Trap".

What To Do With Tons of Breadcrumbs

If the OP wants to try something savory rather than something sweet, search online for recipes that include strata.
(( E.g. Asparagus and mushroom strata)).

returning food to supermarket?

Quick story about S&S ... It turned me off when I noticed that the DELI workers were using the butcher's band saw to cut up cheese wheels.

That is just wrong on so many levels.

>> 'I just say Normal please. <<

I'm still laughing over this (because of your wording).

Which do you prefer: a cupcake or a slice of layer cake?

I don't like frosting ... it reminds me of hardened toothpaste.

Sooooo, layer cake is my choice.

Tacos versus fajitas - is there really any difference?

Sopes and tacos are more closely related to each other and their fillings can be used interchangeably. A good question HERE would be "is there really any difference?".

Peanut Butter and Jam (Jelly) Sandwich.

TJ's sunflower seed butter is pretty good. It's not overly sweet, has a great sunflower taste, but it's slightly "runny". It makes for a good PB alternative though.

returning food to supermarket?

I vividly remember returning these items:

2 cans of TJ's chopped clams,
because they resembled and tasted like chopped lake bottom.

1 box of Grand Union dried milk,
because it tasted awful (chalky), was expensive, and was guaranteed OYMB.

2 jugs of Ajax brand laundry detergent,
because the perfume was unbearable.

2 jars of Mister Mustard,
because the jar lids were leaking and foaming.

Peanut Butter and Jam (Jelly) Sandwich.

A Smucker's brand Uncrustables might be a good way to start.
Then ease your way from there.

If you find that you're forced to eat PB&J on WHEAT bread,
then that might be the time to call it quits.

Anchovies : Love it or hate it.

Agostino Recca salted anchovies with HOT vinegar peppers and a crusty Italian bread. To drink, maybe a nice amber beer or something Carricante perhaps.
