I just LOVE this TV commercial



That's my kinda girlie!
She eats her Fried Rice with a spoon,
just like a good local girl should

DH: Why do you use a spoon so often to eat?
Me: To make sure I get very last bit of goodness
DH: You're such a local :chuckle:
(saying someone is a local, pronounced LOCO, is a good thing )
Me: YUP! Through and through

For substance I am making grilled ham, cheese, red onion, and green chile sandwiches. This is the salad I am making, Chopped Cucumber Caprese Salad. The tomatoes, garlic, basil and cucumbers are from my garden.

Well I was originally going to have some shrimp.
Then a friend called and said she was bringing lunch - what did I want?. Surprise me. OK!

She walked in with a can of Escargot, a stick of garlic butter, a Baguette, a pkg of Pate AND a pkg of Cheese Fondue.

We nibbled on the Pate 'n Baguette while I did up the Escargot. Ate that with the rest of the Baguette - LOL I made sure she took home the Fondue when she left.

I'll munch on a peach and maybe some Jello while watching TV tonight.

I eat fried rice with a spoon, too! Why make it so difficult by chasing it all around the plate with a fork?!

I've never tried that, seen it in, TJ's I think, right?
Is it like a Ponzu type of taste profile?

So perfect GG! I use a spoon (when I'm at home at least) for rice dishes and things with gravy It's better than licking the plate

Don't think I've had ponzu, Kgirl. But yes, it's TJ's, pineapple teriaki with ginger, garlic and sesame seeds. I like it (though I don't marinate meat in it due to pineapple-caused meat mushiness). And I too have been known to use a spoon with fried rice.

I use a spoon for rice, too, K-Girl. I may not be a loco (local) but I am considered a little loco (crazy).

Breakfast for supper today. Mushroom omelet with tarragon seasoning and Havarti cheese. Home fried potatoes with Spice House Florida Seasoned Pepper. Little breakfast sausage links from Aldi. And homemade chunky applesauce. Needed only a fork. No photo since even a color picture would be just shades of beige and gray.

I had a hamburger steak with sauteed mushrooms and onions, coleslaw and fruit bowl with berries. Yes, I ate out.

I made the Portuguese Sausage Fried Rice ahead of time,
and HAD to taste test it with a spoon,
well, maybe a few too many bites?

Being a Tuesday, I was thinking Taco Tuesday all day. I saw this thread, and happened to have a can of SPAM (lower sodium, sorry K-girl), and thought, SPAM tacos.

Interesting concept. Bad idea.

If I were to do it again, I would make breakfast tacos with SPAM and eggs. That, and diced onions, and maybe some diced hot peppers. And cheese, of course.

SPAM just didn't work as a replacement for beef, pork butt or chicken in a traditional taco. I ate it, but it wasn't something I will do again.

Live and learn.

Book em, Kgirl.

Probably the new, reboot version. He calls Pork Roll taylor ham. He's not quite right in the head.
