grottomaster, I'm not surprised they want your M & C. Comfort foods, especially those from our youth, win out every time.

BBB - if you're having trouble with the heat of spicy foods, do NOT drink water. About 25 years ago at a Mexican restaurant, the water told us to have milk or sour cream if things got too hot. He said management told him to give people water, as it made the reaction to the heat worse - and then people would order more beer to try to quell the heat.

Milk, sour cream, yogurt (as found in a good Indian raita) - those are the things that will help cool you down - and ease your tum.

Dairy and sugar! BBB - I assume you've tried sopapillas? Are they still served with honey?

ehBeth, I think you are correct. I remember as a young child visiting my grandparents and my grandfather playfully giving me one of the cute red chilli's off those decorative potted chilli plants. I chewed on it and my mouth and throat were on fire. My grandmother was furious with my Grandfather. Grandma gave me a glass of cream to ease the burning, and it worked.

LittleK, at the Western Gathering in April, the group had dinner at a mexican restaurant. We were served sopapillas with bowls of honey to sop them in. Fbazer recommended them, so I ate a couple of bites and found it very different from anything I had eaten before. I usually just take a few bites of everything due to my limited food intake capacity.

YES!!!!

And so does the portal!

Are these mains, or accompaniments folks - could you categorise them?

whattttt?
I know, I know, I am portal behind. Soon, soon.

Depends on who you are, no? For a lot of light eaters now, these are mains. Perhaps for brunches or lunches, like quiche would be. Whoever mentioned quiche is not far off.
Or perhaps, picnic in the back yard food.

I think I'm going to make a proper Bolognese with hand-cut, homemade taglietelle tomorrow....it's cold and wet, and I think that will go down smooth with whatever's left of the Beaujolais Nouveau.

Well, you know, Cav, how very much I agree with that gesture. And may your house smell wonderful, and the velvet sauce cling to the limbs...

uh, no, not the limbs, the lambent tagliatelle...


p.s.

as long as you are doing it, make lots....

cav, I think I'll warm up the leftover grilled hot dogs and the slightly dried out canned sauerkraut... it might go nicely with the leftover screwcap Sangria.
Yep, that is what I am gonna do.
