Are you snacking on anything right now? **End of summer edition**

Lol.
I love the stuff. It's so addictive. And I really would eat it all if I didn't give it away.

Pumpkin seed cheddar cracker with pimento cheese.

I made the pimento cheese yesterday.Friends came by for drinks. Ate way to much.
Put the PC on triscuits and put under the broiler and drank lots of wine.

I'm packing the rest up and taking to MiL's or I'll eat it all.

Do you have a favorite fruit juice?

Grapefruit juice or cranberry juice.
I don't drink juice often. If I get a craving for juice, those two are what I will usually go for.

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

Yeah, I know they are pretty easy. Mine just never really taste great. They come out hard and dry.
The frozen ones are easy to pop one or or two in the toaster oven.

Biscuits.
I know they are cheaper and better homemade. Mine just never turn out very good.
So I buy those frozen Pillsbury kind. They are really good and always turn out wonderful.
A little honey and butter with a hot cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon hits the spot.

S'mores on saltines.
Not healthy, but so good. I like to sub the saltines crackers. The salt cuts the sweetness.

National Night Out: Easy for a crowd with universal appeal?

I think cupcakes or cookies are a good idea. Or pop up a ton of popcorn and bag up in paper sacks.
Good for you. What a great idea to promote a good thing. Good luck, hope you have fun.

Need New Pizza Topping Combos

Hummus instead of pizza sauce. veggies (mushrooms, red peppers and pineapple)no cheese.

Different but very tasty. I make it on whole wheat crust.

Popcorn and soda pairings

Yes! The pompelmo is wonderful with a little vodka on a summer evening.
Add a big bowl of popcorn and a great movie ....bliss.

To the original poster, what a nice neighbor you are to do this.

I don't drink much pop but a ginger ale would be good with popcorn.

What are your favorite condiments with EGGS?

Chilaquiles with salsa verde and a fried egg on top.
I love it.
Green salsa is my fav but red salsa will be just as good.

Hard boiled egg with a pat of butter is pretty great.

What new food(s) have you tried recently and how was it?

I love it , not embarrassed at all.It really is so refreshing. I love the mango too, but the cucumber lime is just not as sweet to me and I like that.

What is this cut of pork?

Here in Ohio we also call them pork steaks. And my husband also loves them. They are tasty.
I was just about to grill skinless boneless chicken breast for dinner (he hates them ) . And he said wait let me run to the store to see if they have any pork steaks. They did.

Food Shame -- What is a fairly common food that you've never tried. Even though you are probably an adult now and can go and try whatever you want?

1.Ceviche
2.oyster
3. mussels
I don't feel guilty about ceviche, I love fish just not like that.
Mussels I would like to try. I just never have.
Oysters don't look good to me at all.

Do you butter your French toast?

My oldest son is the same, he can't stand real maple syrup and prefers pancake syrup. He also likes turkey bacon over real bacon . He is my son and I still love him ;)

Do you butter your French toast?

As a kid I thought I hated maple syrup. When I had kids I never made pancacks/waffles/ French toast,they had to go to grandmas for those. The Smell of the syrup was nauseating. A few years ago I bought real maple syrup, I'm in love with it. I put in my Greek yogurt. I'm glad I learned the difference.

BEST TORTILLA'S EVER!!! [moved from LA board]

I know this an old thread.
I just wanted to say I bought these yesterday for fish tacos and agree they are really good. Nice flavor. This is the first ever seeing them. I will probably buy them again.

Your "go to" convenience food is.....

Right now it is those Velveeta cheese sause packets. My 4 year old is a picky eater but will eat Velveeta shells and cheese. Yes, I have made him home made and it is a waste of time, he won't eat it.
So when I saw those Velveeta cheese packets for $3.19 you get 3 packets in the box, I bought it. I always have whole wheat pasta of different shapes. And the box of shells and cheese is usually 2 for $5 at my Kroger so the sauce packets are better for me.

Whipped cottage cheese? Uses?

I love ricotta with toasted walnuts and honey drizzled on top. So it this might be good served the same.
I have never heard of whipped cottage cheese. Sounds interesting.

Dill triscuits topped with tuna salad then put under the broiler with sharp Cheddar cheese.
Way to many of them.
