How can you tell? I kvetch when everything is fine. I kvetch when everything stinks.


Sure...I just worry when you don't kvetch.




That makes sense. You know me too well, querida.



To know is to love, bubbeleh.

Now onto Gala and the seeds being the best part. Ich hubza in drerd with the best part. Nothing personal. It's just that no matter what I chose not to eat when I was a child, THAT was the steenkin' best part. Didn't want the potato skin on a baked potato. The best part. Didn't want the walnuts in a brownie. The best part. NOT. The chocolate surrounding the walnuts is the best part. I'm surprised she didn't try to get me to eat banana skin and orange peel.


Nothing personal? From you, it's a mitzvah.

My yiddisha mama was pretty lucky when it came to feeding her children-- we liked the seeds, the nuts, the brisket-- she put it in front of us we ate it. The one exception was tongue, which really has to be one of the most farshtinkener food products on the planet.




I love tongue. Crave tongue. Went schlepping around to look for a pickled tongue to make. Found one. $44. Fuhgedaboutit. Mumzahs.

@Gala,
Mmmm, m'mother (what is that in hebonic? I don't really know what it is in colloquial irish-am) used to cook tongue with a raisin syrup sauce. I liked it, except for the baddy fatty parts.
Memory of Campo dei Fiori in Rome, the stall with all the hanging beef tongues.
I have a photo somewhere...

Get ready. Here it comes. Hold on, you shouldn't get a rupture.







I've never eaten at McDonald's.

They don't know about McDonalds in the Bronx? Is it like Siberria?

Roger, I don't know what they know in the Bronx. I haven't been there for years. We have McDonald's in Manhattan. However, when I want a hamburger, I go to a place that makes big, juicy, beefy burgers with all kinds of wonderful fixings. There are many of these in Noo Yawk, Noo Yawk.

I was accused as a child of being a picky eater (in addition to not eating the best parts). Maybe my mother was right. There's a first time for everything.

I wish I could say that. My first job--ever-- was at a McDonalds.

How are you feeling today?

At best, I'm eh. Today, spent and exhausted. Also having asthma problems. It's always something--at least with me.

You worked at McDonald's. Feh (no offense). My mother always told me to never eat a hamburger in a restaurant. God only knows what's in it. I didn't listen. But I eschew fast food burgers. God only know what they put in those things. And it really doesn't matter. My experience with Burger King suggests that whatever it is ain't that good.

@Roberta,
Roger is a very picky burger eater. Me too, but with different standards... I know Manhattan has some great burgers - see Robert's burger thread for links.
