Hi, I'm Lily and I'm a miso addict!

Uh oh, Lily's off on a tangent again.

cut for food talk


No, really. Miso soup has to be my favorite Japanese food. I quite often have it for breakfast at home, and I'll sometimes take a few packets of instant to work to have for lunch. Sadly, most of my coworkers (except for Jenny, who is Korean) flinch when they see me slurping seaweed so happily.

People crack me up, especially here in Kentucky. It's not like we don't have some bizarre local dishes here. Have you ever had Burgoo? It's delicious, but if you can't handle the texture of stewed okra you probably wouldn't like it. Then there is the famous pig roast. We roast an entire pig in a 55 gallon metal drum that has been made into a barbecue, then cut that yummy piggy up to serve with potato salad, beans...whatever your best dish is and the ever present gallons of iced sweet tea. And the desserts, oh yeah! Sweet potato pie is highly addictive. Or how about some bread pudding with whiskey sauce?

Summer is approaching and that means BARBECUE! Have some pulled venison barbecue on buns with some cold beer.

Basically, I'll give anything a try just once. The only foods I've never been able to put in my mouth were chitterlings. If you don't know, they are cleaned, boiled pig intestines. They may be absolutely tasty, but I wouldn't know. I couldn't get past the *smell*.

But let's not be forgetting one of the finest delicacies of the South...fried chicken. Food of the gods, if you ask me.

I think I've rambled aimlessly enough for this morning. Now I'm hungry. It's also my only day off until next Tuesday so I'll be getting some writing done today...hopefully. Poor Rude. :snicker:

Have never had most of the foods that you have mentioned but then again, I grew up in NYC, & have lived in Albany, NY, Rochester, NY, & Greenville, PA. Sounds interesting. I really do need to visit the south...

One of the ladies on CAC attends Mardi Gra every year with her husband. They go to the high level costume champagne balls & such. They also participate in the street festival but their main reason for attending are the fancy private parties.

Yep, you really should visit the South. (capitalization mandatory) Everyone is always welcome, and if you are a friend of Joe Bob's cousin's neighbor's pastor's occasional card playing buddy, you are practically family!

The food is always tasty, just do *not* ask about fat, sugar, salt or alcohol content. As those are the four main food groups it's safe to say anything you eat here will probably contain all of them.

The beer and tea flow like water. It's loud, rowdy and the occasional fight might break out that can only be settled by a deathmatch of horseshoes, but everyone leaves happy, full and talking about the next time.

Wish the "in house" battles were settled that easily! There isn't any doubt, I will head your way at some point. Yes, I will give advance notice.. my word on that! Now, should you head this way, you had better let ME know. The door is always open as is the kitchen.

mmm fried chicken. Oh! Oh! I fried some chicken tenders the other day, but dredded them in egg, then flour, then egg again, and crunched up sunchips after! It was so freakin awesome!

You forget something about us Kentucky people.... it can't just be beer, it has to be can beer! Sitting in a lawn chair, bbqin, and drinking that can beer (I go for the bottles and taps when I can myself, but you have to admit, can beer is totally Kentucky!)

*pokes Lily into going to Maido* They have green tea mochi, yakitori, dumplings.... just... *drools*

Yep, can beer. I just thank all the gods listening that my uncles all finally gave up Sterling and drink Bud now. That crap is cheap as dirt and tastes like turpentine. I once asked my middle uncle why he drank that nasty stuff. His reply?

"Keeps me regular, and after the first three it tastes just fine."

Don't forget the homemade hooch, jug wine, and moonshine. Some of it is probably lethal, but it sure tastes good.
