The minute I saw the suggestion that we describe basic recipies we like making often I was counting down to this exchange.
add whole-grain pasta
when pasta is to taste, drain

Did you just tell me how to make spaghetti?

Made some jawsome blue cheese dressing using this recipe, but with Greek yogurt in place of sour cream!

About to dip some buffalo wings into it!

Omg guys, so today I went to The Food Show and got to spend all day eating and drinking things. It was great! I very rarely spend that much time talking about food and wine with friends. So much good cheese and chutneys and juice and cocktail mixers and desserty things oils. But my god, the vinegars they had were actually kinda mind-blowing--who knew you could get balsamic flavour in vanilla/cinnamon flavour! I have POMEGRANATE vinegar and am currently eating it in salad with Greek sheep & goat feta which is also AMAZING. The fig vinegar was amazing also, sweet in a dessert way.

To the alcohol thread! Where I will express enthusiasm! I felt so ridiculous and like a foodie person today. It helped that I was doing it with awesome people.

Don't say the word 'foodie'. It makes Jesus cry, and also me. Next you'll be saying 'nom'.

But I'm using it like tossers who describe themselves as such do, not seriously. I got to be bourgeois for a day and pretend to be a wanker of the food and wine society.

Don't worry, I hate the word nom. 'Noms' is perhaps even worse.

I made these bacon/caramelized-onion/cheddar deviled eggs last night, and finished off the batch this evening.  They are fucking delicious.  Added some cayenne and paprika to the recipe, and my gods they are wonderful.

Just ate a load of these - 'yubu chubap' - seasoned sticky rice in fried and marinated tofu casings.

Mrs Ink gets them from the one and only (tiny) Korean supermarket within a 50-mile radius of where we live, a place called "Otoggi" in Hove. They're imported from Korea, and come frozen in a packet, I'm told. She has never seen them in a conventional supermarket or shop here. But I expect that would be different in places like New York etc where there are big K-populations.

First inari i ever had was shortly after LPTJer Stephanie found out I had never had one, and insisted that I go to the nearest real Japanese restaurant and ask for one, even if they weren't on the menu.  They weren't, but boy did the guys make me a ton of them. And they were good.

I am cross-posting this from my FB because I like it that much:

DRY Soda is one of my new favorite things. 1/4 the sugar of a normal soda, it comes in a variety of peculiar flavors, like lavender, cucumber, juniper berry, and blood orange. Due to the reduced sugar, it's only 60 cal a bottle; honestly, I'd drink it even if it weren't low-cal simply because I prefer the reduced sweetness. Guessing it would make for a really awesome mixer in the hands of a more practiced mixologist than I.
http://drysoda.com/

It makes me wish I could get more reduced-sugar sodas--I'd much rather have a Coke, for instance, that was noticeably less sweet than one sweetened with some vile synthetic sweetener that coats your tongue for hours afterward. There are few flavors I like less than that of artificial sweeteners.

Hmm, maybe I'll have to check that stuff out.  I'm hopelessly addicted to soda and I could certainly stand to cut down on my sugar/aspertame intake.  And hey - it's available at Wegman's!

Also, holy crap Nick - that yubu chuba looks delicious!

I think I would like to drink a cucumber soda that sounds pretty good. I might not even add booze to it. Well not every time.

GuS Soda is a little sweeter than that, but it's the same idea. It seems pretty obvious that there's a market for people who are repulsed by artificial sweeteners and overmuch sugar.

Really, though, I just like seltzer with a splash of cranberry juice or whatever else I have at hand.

I just can't get into sweet drinks these days--only bitter beverages or water seem to do it. 

But I have been into "roasted young coconut juice" from the asian market.  When I was in Thailand last month I drank 1 or 2 coconuts a day (not roasted).  I love the strange, slightly viscous, slightly sweet taste.

yes indeed, Outpost.
It is basically this but with whole slices of avocado on top instead of avocado salad so it does not quite look so much like barf as it does in that picture. I guess a few places do it, and it's probably available in sushi restaurants too, but Outpost's is my favorite. I usually only have time to go in before work and they almost never have it out at 7:30 in the morning, so every time I find it in the deli section it is like avocado Christmas. Also for the record me talking about spicy avocado inari in the foods on a desert island thread is the fourth Google result for "avocado inari Outpost."

I really like Outpost's sushi/maki in general. Probably my favorite of the store-bought variety, though Metro Market is really good and, surprisingly enough, Woodman's as well.

I was hugely disappointed by Trader Joe's, however. It sucked.
