Since joining DC, and because I read so many opinions on them here, I have started using rubs on some of my meats, I have learned to love medium-rare beef, and I have become even more adventurous in my eating. Partly because of DC I have learned to love sushi. The reason I finally gave in and tried sushi was for a completely different reason though. I figured that if the people on "Fear Factor," "Survivor," etc. could eat the nasty things they had to eat, I could give in and try sushi.
I'm so glad I did!
Oh yes, another "trend" I have picked up from DC is that when we travel I tend to eat the local cuisine more often than I used to, rather than always sticking to familiar favorites. Including those wonderful sandwiches we had when we ate with you (Luvs) and Jake at Primanti Brothers!
