Women who don't eat much when among peers

Eating minimally is okay during a business lunch. Otherwise, let 'er rip, I say.

I love Tim Hortons because...

New York City, too. There is one in Penn Station. I know because I lived in New Jersey and commuted to NYC.

Imperial v. Metric issue

Yes, I have such a cookbook. "A bowl of rice" is in one recipe. It would be nice to know what size bowl.

What foods have you made and then decided store bought was good enough, thank you, based upon cost, time, and taste?

Since I am on my own, and we were only two when DH was alive, I don't bake anymore. Add baking ingredients up and it gets expensive. I have found most supermarket bakery departments have perfectly acceptable products at reasonable prices.

Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Manhattan Memories

The Automat. I was taken there when I was 10 and for an out-of-town kid, I was duly impressed.

Can only find curly noodles

We have both flat and curly noodles in Montreal. I noticed when I lived in New Jersey that I couldn't find flat noodles either. I suppose it all depends on marketing. You could always try breaking up fettuccine. Or parpadelle if you can find it.

Definition of Shepherd's Pie

In Quebec, where it is practically a national dish, it is ground beef, kernel corn and mashed potato topping. But the original British Isles dish was indeed made with lamb.

Cheap Foods that Become Popular

I posted in another thread some time ago that I remember when supermarkets used to give wings away for soup and stock. Then some genius in Buffalo started serving them as bar food and the rest is history.

Very funny list of food products with unfortunate English name translations

IIRC the original product was called Aids but was changed shortly after the Aids epidemic. I remember seeing the ads in magazines.

Alton Brown is Nasty to Contestants!!!

I know a chef who once worked with Tyler Florence. According to Florence, Brown is an a$$hole.

anyone eaten at Schwartz's in Montreal recently? [moved from Ontario board]

I liked it before they went all fern bar. Haven't been since I used to work in the area. But yeah, poutine and egg rolls sound pretty pathetic.

As I understand it, Schwartz's is a tourist mecca. There is better smoked meat. I have always liked Reuben's on St. Catherine Street.

So annoyed with dinner guest

You are under no obligation to prepare anything for anybody who consistently will not like it. Do not enable.

Do Canadians Eat More Healthily Than US Americans?

Both are big with the American tourist market, and both their fare and portions reflect it.

Anyone else disgusted with dogs in restaurants?

I think it depends on what one is used to. People bring their dogs into restaurants in Paris all the time.

Restaurant servings wise, I would say American portions are larger.

What's the Worst Dish You Ever Made?

When the mother-in-law of a former colleague was faced with a recipe calling for Half and Half, she would use the soda!

The best thing you've never had?

Among others, cassoulet. I have several recipes but have never attempted any of them. It is rather labor intensive.

What parts of a pig should I ask for: not the meat, tho?

Don't eschew the trotters. They are a national dish here in Quebec. You can google the recipes. Aww, now I'm all hungry.
