Gerald and i have been talking alot about foods we enjoy while playing cards .. .. .. my fav snack is Ruffles plain potato chips dipped in Bob’s bleu cheese dressing .. .. .. what’s yours?
There are other snacks besides CHOCOLATE??????????????????
Thinly sliced Ambrosia or Gala apple topped with Brie. Sometimes I divide an orange into sections, top each piece with a bit of Brie, place them in the microwave 'til cheese is melted and gooey ... mmmmmmYUM Great question tusconsky.
WHATCHAMACALLIT it is a candy bar..... and a mug full of Almond Amaretto Cappuccino
Plain old chips & dip for me!
Jalapeno kettle chips
when avacados are in season, which is all year here, i like to dice one and put in bowl with cottage cheese and salsa, eat with Fritos Scoops, yummy and healthy too!
@Rev, on the top of my grocery list now: brie and apples, yummy, thanks for the idea
Baked potato with the works for me. Love all things potato.
Can foie gras and caviar be far behind?
G64...if you can't remember the name of the candy bar, maybe you can describe it. Does it have nuts like a Snickers or a Payday?
I'm wondering what these keyboards look like after a bag of chips or two. I do indulge in apple slices with peanut butter ...but I bought some brie on the way home.
@homedoggy, a watchamacallit candy bar is a peanut flavored crisp that utilizes peanut butter for flavor w/ layer of carmel and layer of chocolate coating.
O.K. @Gerald64, I'm drooling all over my keyboard!
i’ll have what he’s having
Dollar General's stores is the only place have found em' around this neck of woods so hop on down and grab you one,
my brother makes this one and i really like it .. .. .. cream cheese with capers and a dash of sherry vinegar, mix it up and put on celery stalks, enjoy!
Cinnamon Toast, lightly brown or if desired darker, toast on sheet pan in oven I use 300 F , remove spread butter on toast , sprinkle desired coating of cinnamon on toast , cook for another 1-2 minutes til butter melts
also do same for peanut butter toast cook til browned and hot remove then spread desired amount of Peanut Butter cook 1 min. til peanut butter melts.
Glass of wine?
Depends on if I'm in a savoury or sweet mood, but pretty much anything I can grab 'n' go. Gotta watch out when I get weird cravings though - like pink milk and pickles.
1 can of tuna, drained
1 blob of mayo
1 spoon of curry powder, salt and pepper
Mix up and spread on a cracker (nut thins with sesame seeds r my fav, gf too)
eaten with a sweet gherkin pickle (and pink milk?)
Tusconsky, I love that too (excluding pickle). I add some diced apple. Good on crackers and with a heap shredded lettuce or alfalfa sprouts makes a great sandwich. Now I am hungry.
for all u parrotheads
Homemade chocolate chip cookies.
@homedoggy et al
And sending a big bird back to ya.
(thx for the set-up)
thought u were housebroken, doggy, my bad, u can have ur cookies in the backyard
lol ...touche...but no sense fighting like cats and doggys.
Popcorn. Lots and lots of popcorn. Largely as a delivery system for my own blend of spices: cayenne, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper. Plus whatever strikes my fancy on a given night...
all the spices sound good as well, I still prefer coated in orange salt like you use to get in movie theatre.
mhm, luv me some popcorn, popped in a pot on the stove, i add 6 or 7 glugs of Huichol Hot Sauce to the corn oil, dont even have to put butter on it, soooooo gooood!
spices on fresh roasted tree or ground nuts (thought I better clarify the nuts in case anyone got precious) yum
Glug for my friend tusconsky
Scrambled eggs topped with blobs of jelly on top and mixed , enjoyed it when I was a kid , use to see my dad do it and still enjoy it
@jabba ...I had a childhood alergy to chocolate (I know, I know) and we weren't big on sweet stuff anyway...but my folks would buy the strawberry version of chocolate milk. Never tried it with pickles though.
thanks for info, G .. .. .. glug is also high tech foodie talk for “the amount of sauce that comes out of a bottle when it is held upside down over a bowl or cooking vessel and shaken once, named for the sound liquid makes as it leaves the bottle” .. .. .. i cant reveal my source for this definition, i am sworn to secrecy under threat of having my immersion blender taken away 🐒
I'm with Jade1953... chocolate! With a cup of tea or a glass of wine, thanks graeme! I like apples, greenish bananas, and cherries, in season. I will add that bacon makes an excellent snack food and tastes great with chocolate. https://www.google.com/search?biw=1280&bih=913&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=sbqaXPHzJePHjwSQ9q_gCg&q=bacon+chocolate&oq=bacon&gs_l=img.1.1.0i67l3j0j0i67l2j0l3j0i67.14361.16272..18557...0.0..0.110.961.6j4......1....1..gws-wiz-img.......0i7i30.Blmc3gurZws
Crabapples, also make best homemade apple pies or fritters!
@Jade1953 a handful of chocolate chips in small glass bowl with splash of milk or cream, microwave for 20-30 seconds, just long enuff to melt, mix it up and dip banana in if i have peanuts or smokehouse almonds i chop ‘em up and add those to chocolate-dipped banana 🐒
poutine with maple syrup and hot sauce, yum!
