"Simplest" Commercially Available Bread Roll or Muffin?

Finagle makes bialys. http://www.finagleabagel.com/what-we-...

Near East makes pita that's just flour, salt, water, and yeast. TJs sells a generic version of it.

Iggy's breads don't have conditioners or preservatives. Some have oil, not all.

Is a slow cooker still needed if we have a rice cooker?

I've never used either, but Roger Ebert wrote a cookbook called The Pot. http://www.amazon.com/The-Pot-How-Use...
All of the recipes are intended for a rice cooker.

Looks like there are some other cookbooks based on rice cookers too.

Eating moldy foods?

No. Even if it was safe, the visual spoils my appetite.

Are your taste buds ever off?

Did you have other flavors lingering in your mouth? Your experience reminds me how orange juice tastes terrible, after brushing your teeth. Sounds like you may have had some conflicting flavors.

Long post, short weekend in Boston

The Clover food truck at Park st on the common opens for breakfast at 7am. They have oatmeal, yogurt, muffins and popovers, plus outdoor seating. Then you could easily hop on the red line or walk across the Longfellow bridge to Cambridge.

casual good veggie eats around/not far from Boston Eye and Ear?

If you're looking for convenience there's a Whole Foods a 5 min walk from MEEI. They have a pretty good salad/hot bar. You could pack up some goodies and have a picnic on the Esplanade.

Planning a trip - mid August.

Take the B-Green Line to Allston (or walk if it's nice) and check out the 88 Food Court. They have Chinese, Korean, Indian, Vietnamese - Pho Viet is a personal favorite. Then walk over to Clear Flour Bakery and/or Japonaise Bakery for some pastries. Or reverse that and hit Clear Flour first thing for a chocolate croissant that's still warm from the oven.
