(Moderation, be nice)
There was a time I used to enjoy it here, but in the last year - maybe two years - I've cut way back on posting on DC. I know others who have done the same. It's really for one...

You're right. You are definitely not a foodie. Compared to us mere commoners, you sound far too superior to wear that label. :rolleyes:

I don't eat bread, so for me it's all about the meat. I like fat burgers, and I like them pink in the middle.
