to me, unseasoned loose meat with add-ons after cooking is the same as pasta boiled in unsalted water...something is always missing

Famous Regional Food you find embarrassing or disgusting?

loose meat sandwiches/steam burgers- loose ground meat, steamed. that's it. no seasonings, no sauce. nothing. had the one at stewarts in rosedale, md. no more.

ocean city/boardwalk fries. limp, oil-soaked, anemic-looking.

mars sell smearkase. simons bakery in cockeysville sells smearkase along with another, almost lost baltimore tradition, fresh peach cake. scratch-baked, the old-fashioned way.

bottom of the bay seafood in laurel, md, has ayce steamed shrimp, crabs, etc. it's a "hole in the wall", but the food is pretty tasty. they, also, have a light hand with their fried items

heads-up to those of you who await the yearly arrival of puff pastry at trader joe's...if you have a wegmans near you, they have a store brand of puff pastry that is made with butter and under $6 for a one pound package and is available year-round.

mrs ts doesn't make meat-filled pierogies. i make them every couple of years so that i can have the fillings that i like and can't buy. i'm fortunate to live near russian and polish delis/groceries and churches. they have multiple varieties of pierogies- from machine stamped to home-made dough and fillings. not, cheap, the homemade ones, but darn tasty.
