One thing I had in mind for this thread was a place to go when stuck without an idea for what to have. There'll be times when I scroll through this until something goes 'ping!'

WmC, Thursday, 17 December 2009 20:02 (twelve years ago) link

^^^I was thinking this thread would be such a resource too, thus far joygoat's is the most mysterious and alluring suggestion

like having an eternal kazoo in your underwear (acoleuthic), Thursday, 17 December 2009 20:03 (twelve years ago) link

I'm curious about harbl's #8.

WmC, Thursday, 17 December 2009 20:05 (twelve years ago) link

oh yeah i said this on some sandwich thread but the best sandwich i have ever had was avocado + gruyere + some kind of raspberry spread. like raspberry hummus or something.

(followed by your smoked oysters + sriracha...and I trust by Polish sausage Jaq means Sopocka? Because that stuff is fabulous)

That sounds lovely, Harbl. One of my favourite desserts is the Mess, which is made from fruit compote, cream and mascarpone, but that might be even better

Meteor Crater (jdchurchill), Thursday, 17 December 2009 21:24 (twelve years ago) link

Velveeta and Rotel tomatoes
