On the other hand, I find it curious how some people with a particular fondness for a cuisine seem to be personally insulted when other opinions are the opposite. Something to think about, no?

No. Sorry. I'm not going to waste any of my time thinking about it at all.

Back to DC inspirations. Sometimes just a picture will be my inspiration, like this one for msmofet's Chicken or Turkey Confetti soup:

This is a good thread. Yesterday I mentioned how I was inspired by MsMofet's Confetti Soup.

Today's inspiration was to make some.

My version uses ingredients I have on hand and doesn't actually follow MsMofet's recipe, but it looks the same as hers and will taste wonderful.

Inspiration can come in many forms. A picture like MsMofet's; a comment made by a membe; or even an ingredient in someone's recipe that inspires you.

I often will run across an ingredient that I haven't tried yet, but have wanted to, or an ingredient that has fallen out of my current line up of meals.

I find DC to be inspirational, and enjoy tweaking recipes. And now I want me some potato salad with HB eggs.
I can't eat "hot" curries. I have problems with chillies. But I do like a good korma or pasanda which have no chilli bite at all. I like dhansak as well which is slightly spicy but further than that I cannot do.

Apart from the allergic reaction, anything with chili in it only tastes of chilli to me and it kills anything else in there. I wish I could eat and enjoy it.

Why? Who is?

If I say you couldn't pay me to eat something, that is my opinion and I don't expect anyone else to share it and, likewise, I wouldn't expect you to like something I love.

If someone feels they are "personally insulted" because they are disagreed with over something as trivial in the scheme of things as food choices, I suggest they may need to grow up and get a life. There are more important things to get insulted about. Mind you, I do know two people (not on here) who didn't speak to each other for 3 weeks because they couldn't agree on whether a scone with jam and cream should have the cream or the jam put on the scone first !!! (It's a Cornwall/Devon difference of opinion).

What I would take exception to is certain persons being obnoxious to other people just for the sake of it, as has happened over the last couple of days.

I thought we were here to have fun, learn a bit and enjoy ourselves, not to have childish squabbles. This forum is called "Discuss Cooking" not "Quarrel about Cooking"!

We spent a week in Corwall, and it was explained to me that one puts the jam on the bottom and one puts on the top. I cannot remember which was which, though.

I once made my younger daughter cry because I made her cheese sandwich incorrectly. You must place the slice of cheese onto the slice of bread then fold the combination in half. NEVER EVER fold the cheese slice in half before placing it on the bread! I learned my lesson.

Oh how well I know that. My granddaughter was almost four years old. I started the peel on a banana for her. Evidently I pulled the peel down to far. She wanted to do it herself. She threw a tizzy fit like you wouldn't believe. Threw herself on the floor screaming and crying about how I ruined her banana. I ended up eating that one and gave her another for her to peel herself. Went through that for learning to tie her shoes, pour milk, cut her meat, dress herself, you name it, she wanted to do it for herself. She wasn't a baby anymore. What a horrible month that was.

No, I can't remember either.
