What "typical American Foods" would you serve to foreigners?

That's likely true for more traditional or "bürgerliche" restaurants than it is for more modern places.

In either country, you're not likely to leave the table hungry.

Reese's and peanut butter cookies are their own food group :-)

They can't enter my house, save for Halloween :-D

What's for Dinner #322 - the pre-Labor Day Weekend Edition

That's nice. I hate having to deal with the silver skin, tho a sharp knife usually takes care of it well.

The recipe sounds nice, but the pork looks way overdone to my taste. Nothing that can't be fixed, of course :-)

Oy, that sucks, B. Fret not, as for after the procedure you'll hopefully be able to get back to deliciousness, yes?

What "typical American Foods" would you serve to foreigners?

I gotta say, I absolutely loathe pumpkin pie (tho I am not French) and cannot fathom peanut butter on bread, let alone with jam/jelly -- savory applications are a whole other animal and don't have much to do with "typical American food" anymore.

And you have to admit that in the average US restaurants, the meal portions are larger than in average French or German restaurants. That's why the idea (or necessity) of a doggy bag is such a strange concept to many Europeans.

That Time Anthony Bourdain Scared Kids with the Gay, and I Laughed

Being transgender has nothing to do with sexual orientation, but rather identity. Also, not sure how asexuals factor in here.

But please, if you need more accurate statistics..... look 'em up and get back to us, mmmmmkay?

The only thing I ever managed to crochet was a 10 ft long line of string in 3rd grade.

Never really *got* the second row. I believe I got an F for that one :-D

The Dandelion might be an option if you like gastropubs. Oh, and sorry I didn't see you're en route to Bella Italia. No Eye-talian food needed then, presumably.

If you can, check out AB's The Layover/Philly episode (including the "extra miles" edition) - you may just find something there.

How's Zahav sound?

wine pairings for cigars

Not much of a cigar smoker myself (anymore), but when I was, I found aged rum or a good single malt to be a much better match than any wine.

That's a good point. I think I'll leave it to the 'delphians to direct you to "uniquely Philly" joints (no, not *that* kind).

That said, BYOB is - to me - a very Philly thing, but it's not something you wanted to do......

You're right, it's actually closer to 98.3%.

Better?

So the pork tenderloin (grilled whole) came out fine - I guess it's difficult to get the entire piece to a med/med-rare, given that it's not a uniformly thick cut.

In the end, it was between med/med-well, which was fine with me: still juicy and quite flavorful from the stuff I brushed on it.

The corn & scallion "hash" also hit the spot, though my man thought I had gone perhaps a little overboard with the cayenne. As if!

Today looks like another couple of hours at the nearby lake, *maybe* followed by k-boxing. I am still ridiculously sore thanks to 3 months of doing squat (instead of doing squatS), so I don't know if I can take it again :-D

Tonight we'll have the casa lingua favorite, TCC. Haven't quite figured out the sides yet, but confident I will by the time dinner rolls around.

I still have no idea what the situation is here, but I am confident you and the mods will work it out somehow. Bonne chance!

Nah, there's only one Dude, and it ain't you.

Discontinued at Trader Joe's: July 2014-December 2014

I don't have a problem with that. Takes care of stolen/abandoned shopping carts, for the most part.

Ha. I feel dirty just clicking on that link now.

Osteria, Vernick, Amis.

Franklin Mortgage is my favorite bar in town. It's pretty quiet, caters to an adult clientele, and makes a mean cocktail.

More BS stories to stir up anti-islamic sentiments. No wonder the "Glenn Beck program" (that guy is still around?) is advertised on the same site.

Pathetic, but no more so than your average talk radio crap.

Am I the only person on the planet that doesn't "get" Trader Joe's?

High prices? Huh. Where do you usually shop?

One of the reasons I stop in TJ's is that many items are *much* cheaper than at Wegmans (my primary supermarket... though that's beginning to change given their recent "revamp").
