one of my most grammatically, semantically, spelling correct friends is from uruguay and is esl.

Exactly my point. In fact, if I had to choose only one source of protein to consume for the rest of my life, Toro / Chūtoro / Maguro would be high on the list.

But nobody actually said to me at any point "You know, this stuff is about ten thousand times tastier than the product which you grew up knowing as tuna." That needs to be written in a manual somewhere.

And to this day, I still have no idea why people continue to purchase the chalky grey **** in the can. I mean, I understand that cats like it, but cats also like licking their own *******.

i didn't read anything in this thread and have no idea why we're talking about eggplant, but have you given eggplant parmesan a shot?
I honestly can't remember- it all sort of blends together.




Sidebar: sweet potatoes.


I like sweet potatoes. Baked sweet potatoes, sweet potato fries, sweet potato chips, sweet potato whatever.

But sweet potato casserole? Who the **** thought that one up? You know what I'm talking about- mashed sweet potatoes mixed with a bunch of brown sugar, nutmeg and vanilla, topped with ******* marshmallows and then baked.

MARSHMALLOWS!


That ****'s just gross.


(Not marshmallows- they're fine in hot coco or with a graham cracker and a bit of dark chocolate. Just the idea of putting them on top of mashed potatoes... it's like asking the queen to wear a bikini and a rainbow-colored wig.)



I will never understand why we (as a species) insist on taking perfectly good foods and then doing horrible things to them to make then inedible.


The best way to prepare Tuna is to pull it out of the ocean, whack it on the head, cut it into strips, and throw it on a plate. That's it- no seasoning, no cooking, no additives, no brining. I literally want a piece of tune that was alive and kicking 60 seconds ago, and is served to me at the same temperature that it was at when it came out of the water.

The same goes for sweet potato. Ok, you can cook it if you want to, but keep the additives to a minimum. A pinch of salt, a pat of butter maybe, and that's about it.

For all I know, a raw eggplant might be delicious. I've only ever had them all fancied-up and covered with non-eggplant stuff.

Eggplant is gross. Do not like, no matter how prepared.

Tuna, on the other hand, I will eat right out of the can (after draining off the water for my cats) and I think plain old tuna casserole is one of life's simple pleasures. Then again, I like sardines, so take all that as you will.

I'm with you, actually....

If i have to pile cheese, bacon, and garlic on something to make it worth eating, it's not worth eating, and i'll just have a plate of cheese, garlic, and bacon instead. Thanks.

I don't understand why people eat eggplant that has been cooked to the consistency of semi dried snot. I've always thought of it as something to be eaten like a radish, slightly cooked but not boiled down to slime. Try an eggplant tempura, it may change your opinion.

Batter and deep fry that ****, it's delicious.

Grilled eggplant rules as well.

I don't specifically *hate* "ordinary" potatoes and their byproducts (chips / crisps / fries / etc.) But I certainly won't seek them out with any sort of passion.

By comparison, some lightly-cooked sweet potato fries, very lightly salted and served with mayo for dipping, is just utter heaven.

This gives me an idea for an appetizer dish.

Yes, that pretty much sums it up, actually.

I don't believe I have ever encountered eggplant tempura. I will remain alert for it.

You're dipping sweet potatoes in mayo but hate it when people put marshmallows on them?

Sweet potato fries only.

I got hooked on this (mayo as a condiment for french fries) over in Germany. That whole bit in Pulp Fiction where Vincent is telling Jules about the "little differences" in Europe- that **** is 100% genuine. Here in North America, you order fries to go and they toss in a couple of ketchup packets. In western Europe, you order fries to go and they toss in a mayonnaise packet which is several times the size of a US-spec ketchup packet.

There are other common condiments as well. Curry-ketchup is one (the Germans, in particular, seem to like sweet, mild curry with a lot of things. If you've not tried Currywurst, you need to.) Another common topping is Fritessaus, which is a mayo-like condiment.

Ironically, Fritessaus is actually more popular in Holland than straight mayo for putting on fries. So if Vincent was in fact dining at a McDonald's in Amsterdam as he claims, he would have more likely encountered this product:




This is the other thing I love about the Dutch. For some reason, they seem to be fascinated by "American-style" everything when it comes to food, even when the term is totally inappropriate and misleading. I mean, mayonnaise is a natively European condiment (it comes from Spain, originally), and yet here's how Remia, a company based in Holland, packages it:



According to them, spiced mayonnaise is "American Style Fritessaus."
