When I have sour cream on hand and a packet of Lipton's onion soup mix, and some Lay's potato chips, I can't resist making dip and chips, even a small amount. About Lay's potato chips, ("You can't eat just one."). Dig this...Lay's used to take out any chips that were folded over, so that only perfect chips made it into the bag. Nowadays, 20% of their chips are folded over imperfect. Weren't the good old days the good old days, in some ways? Hehe, yes they were.

I made a smoothie, with a very ripe banana and a couple of chunks of frozen pineapple, and a couple drops of coconut flavoring. I added some chia seeds - I always add these in the beginning, let them gel for 5 min or so, then continue. I also added some of that neufchatel cheese, since the banana bread was better without it, and this added a really good flavor.

Don't diss those folded chips. They're Himself's favorites no matter what the brand. Like you, I like flat chips. My preference is as thin as you can get them, and folded chips seem hard instead of crispy to me.

BTW, welcome to DC, Togo.

Thanks CG. I was banned awhile back by Fiona. If she guesses who I am, I may not be here much longer if I don't watch it. She got tired of my sandbox or something. I consider myself on probation and will have to watch my P's and Q's.

Or...she may ban me outright immediately.

No fighting here. Himself gets the fold-overs and I get the ones that look a bit brown. Well-done, you might say.

Bacon can be anything, Jon. Snack, a meal...dessert.

Toasted bread, cheese slices added and broiled until it gets puffy, then tomato slices on top, then bacon on top. Someone has to have made that. I've had that as a meal.

I've been going through old recipe clippings lately. I came across one for a 5-minute chocolate mug cake. I didn't remember if I made it before, but I won't be using this recipe again. While it was tasty, it was very...dense. Couldn't have been that bad, though. We split the cake and turned it into sundaes! Coffee ice cream, whipped cream, and hot fudge.

I like a nice slab of toasted whole wheat bread, topped with thin sliced raw mushrooms that are then covered by thin slices of a Swiss cheese like Jarlsberg. Grilled until the cheese is not only puffy but a little brown in spots. Good eats.
