~ Do you have any problem(s) with your computer...or whatever device you use to visit here?
No *fingers crossed*

~ Are you planning on having some sort of good meal in the next week or so? What might you have to eat?
I'm being lazy this year and ordering a precooked holiday meal from Whole Foods. All I need to do is add a green vegetable and make some whipped cream for the pie.

~ Did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory)
No, and I don't miss it.

~ When you are about to eat a whole baked potato, where do you cut the potato - what is your baked potato STYLE?
I cut it lengthwise along the top, push gently on each end to open it up and add butter, chives, salt, pepper, etc.
~ What, if any, beverage do you have while answering these doo-dads?
Nothing right now, but I would like a glass of water.

~ What is a GRAND MAC?
Spoiler
It's a new menu item from McDonalds.

~
Would you rather that foods in the market be downsized OR go up a bit in price? (Being specific is fine and dandy!)
I'd rather keep the same size and pay more.

~ Any kind of drink that you like from any particular shoppe?
I like prosecco at my favorite Italian restaurant.

~ One place that you remember having good buns:
My mother's house.

~ Describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page:
I wish there was one to express disbelief.


~ Is your bed nice and comfy? Any wishes for something else for it?
Yes, I really like my bed. It is from a local company called McRoskey that's been around since before the 1906 earthquake. It was manufactured right here in San Francisco. Best bed I've ever slept on.


~ What are your thoughts about horseradish?
I used to dislike it, but now I've developed a taste for it - in moderation. It is good added to salad dressings.

~ What do you like or dislike about a roasted turkey?
Like: The flavor, the aroma, the leftovers.
Dislike: The mess, the length of time it takes to roast, the awkwardness of carving.


~ What bread would you like to have for sandwiches this coming Thanksgiving weekend?
Whole wheat




Thanks, Roosty!

~ are you planning on having some sort of good meal in the next week or so? What might you have to eat? don't know. I've been sick all week with little appetite.


~ did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory) one, i think. More is coming, i'm sure.


~ when you are about to eat a whole baked potato, where do you cut the potato - what is your baked potato style? usually cut it lengthwise first then across.


~ what, if any, beverage do you have while answering these doo-dads? if i have anything it's usually a soft drink. If it's in the morning, likely coffee.


~ what is a grand mac? is this one of those things i'd be stupid to not know? Or just too sick to think?


~
would you rather that foods in the market be downsized or go up a bit in price? (being specific is fine and dandy!) it all depends on the product. I really get annoyed with something downsized too much, and even more annoyed when a product has had both.


~ any kind of drink that you like from any particular shoppe? not really.


~ one place that you remember having good buns: yes, in new orleans where i enjoyed a muffuletta.


~ describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page: peace sign (fingers, not the circle). There have been times when i would have loved to use a middle finger..... Never mind!



~ is your bed nice and comfy? Any wishes for something else for it? comfy yes. Needs clean sheets but i'll wait until i'm better.



~ what are your thoughts about horseradish? not a fan.


~ what do you like or dislike about a roasted turkey? turkey isn't my favorite but i like the white meat when it's moist. Makes good sandwiches.

I saw the movie Krakatoa East of Java in the movie theater when I was a teen.

~ Do you have any problem(s) with your computer...or whatever device you use to visit here?

Not right now. Problems usually follow Microsoft updates.

~ Are you planning on having some sort of good meal in the next week or so? What might you have to eat? No.

~ Did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory) No.

~ When you are about to eat a whole baked potato, where do you cut the potato - what is your baked potato STYLE? I cut it in the kitchen. Butter or sour cream.

~ What, if any, beverage do you have while answering these doo-dads? What doo dads?

~ What is a GRAND MAC?

Never heard of it so I looked it up. It was tested in Dallas and Columbus, Ohio, earlier this year, and is being rolled out in Florida and Pittsburgh now. The rest of us won't see it until next year.

~ Would you rather that foods in the market be downsized OR go up a bit in price? (Being specific is fine and dandy!) go up in price.

~ Any kind of drink that you like from any particular shoppe?

I like banana milk shakes from Dumser's in Ocean City, Maryland but since I don't live there, I always hope some fast food place will offer banana shakes.

~ One place that you remember having good buns: Long Island bakeries.

~ Describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page:

An "I'm Kidding" emoticon especially but not only for the people who don't recognize hyperbole when they read it...usually in the P&OC forum. You know, if you say, "UGH, there were gazillions of people on the road today," they come back with "That's not true. There were only 27,324 according to the weather channel." They don't recognize obvious exaggeration to make a point, in this example, to convey "a lot."

~ Is your bed nice and comfy? yes. Any wishes for something else for it? no

~ What are your thoughts about horseradish? like it.


~ What do you like or dislike about a roasted turkey? I only like the sliced white meat. Not big on turkey.

~ What bread would you like to have for sandwiches this coming Thanksgiving weekend?

If I was in NY, I'd like hard rolls with poppy seeds fresh from a real bakery. Here, I'll have sliced white bread.

I access from home, or work. No problems.


~ Are you planning on having some sort of good meal in the next week or so? What might you have to eat?
Not sure yet. Too much cooking for two. We might go out to eat. I like Thanksgiving buffet. Wide selection of things to try.


~ Did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory)
Yeah, it went right into the recycling bin.


~ When you are about to eat a whole baked potato, where do you cut the potato - what is your baked potato STYLE?
I rarely eat baked potato, I always peel it before cutting and stuffing.


~ What, if any, beverage do you have while answering these doo-dads?
Hot tea!


~ What is a GRAND MAC?
A heart attack on a plate?


~
Would you rather that foods in the market be downsized OR go up a bit in price? (Being specific is fine and dandy!)
In a grocery store - however you look at it, it's the same thing. When the product is downsized you just pay same price for less. So, if you pay the same price for less of the product, then it means the product still cost you more, and it's usually of lesser quality too...
But I would like to see food servings downsized in restaurants, and served on regular 8" plates like in 1960's!


~ Any kind of drink that you like from any particular shoppe?
I don't buy any drinks anywhere, except when I go out to eat or drink...


~ One place that you remember having good buns:
Mostly everywhere, overseas. Bread products in the US suck!


~ Describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page:
<<<



~ Is your bed nice and comfy? Any wishes for something else for it?
My bed is comfy, just got a great mattress.



~ What are your thoughts about horseradish?
Love it! Just wonder why it's not a common condiment here.


~ What do you like or dislike about a roasted turkey?
I don't like turkey. Period. White meat turkey has no taste. Its slabs of dry, fibrous material are more like cardboard conveyances, useful only for transporting flavorsome food like stuffing and gravy from plate to mouth.

~ What bread would you like to have for sandwiches this coming Thanksgiving weekend?
German full grain, organic artisan bread. Preferably dark rye.



***** Whoaaa! What's that smellin' mighty good comin' from the kitchen? *****

Thank you, roosty! You brought the holiday spirit here!
Have an awesome Friday, everyone!

Turkey or ham or royal reds (shrimp) or stuffed flounder or crab cakes or a roast on the rotisserie or two or more of those listed... decisions, decisions!

~ Did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory)
Actually, we get two each year, both small that cover most of the same area w/only a few outliers different, don't really know why!

~ When you are about to eat a whole baked potato, where do you cut the potato - what is your baked potato STYLE?
Sliced down the middle & fluffed up w/butter, sour cream, cheese & chives

~ What, if any, beverage do you have while answering these doo-dads?
Coffee, if any

~ What is a GRAND MAC?
A larger Big Mac from McD's

~
Would you rather that foods in the market be downsized OR go up a bit in price? (Being specific is fine and dandy!)
Would like to be able to buy bone-in chicken breasts that were normal size like we used to be able to get instead of these boneless big fat ones plumped up w/who knows what that are most everywhere now, nowhere near the flavor they used to have! And no price-raising please!

~ Any kind of drink that you like from any particular shoppe?

~ One place that you remember having good buns:
Two come to mind... Fuddruckers that bake their own and the fresh-baked wheat rolls at Spring Creek BBQ

~ Describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page:
Am fine w/those we have.

~ Is your bed nice and comfy?
Any wishes for something else for it?

~ What are your thoughts about horseradish?
Love horseradish, especially mixed w/ketchup for a cocktail sauce for shrimp or in a horseradish sauce w/sour cream for roast/prime rib, the more ('til it takes your breath away) all the better!

~ What do you like or dislike about a roasted turkey?
Like the white turkey breast meat but none of the dark meat and yuck, yuck on the giblets !

~ What bread would you like to have for sandwiches this coming Thanksgiving weekend?
Whatever good stuff I can find!


***** Whoaaa! What's that smellin' mighty good comin' from the kitchen? *****
Thanks Roosty for Friday's QotD, hope you have a wonderful & yummy Thanksgiving Day & dinner!

Wishing all of you a very nice day, enjoy!

~ Did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory) nope or maybe yes, i don't know

~ What is a GRAND MAC? i don't know

~ Describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page: the emoticon "banging head", because sometime i really feel the urge to forget some people dumb comments by banging my head so hard i'll fall unconscious for a while, i'd use it extensively

~ Do you have any problem(s) with your computer...or whatever device you use to visit here? - Nope

~ Are you planning on having some sort of good meal in the next week or so? What might you have to eat? - Nothing planned but I often have good meals.
I might cook a salmon dinner on Thursday since I have the day off.

~ Did you receive a telephone book this year? (directory) - I don't remember the last time I saw one of those.

~ When you are about to eat a whole baked potato, where do you cut the potato - what is your baked potato STYLE? - Butter the outside first, always. Then I cut into about 8 pieces.
A thin slice of butter over what I cut.

~ What, if any, beverage do you have while answering these doo-dads? - N/A

~ What is a GRAND MAC? - No idea.

~ Would you rather that foods in the market be downsized OR go up a bit in price? (Being specific is fine and dandy!) - Depends...

~ Any kind of drink that you like from any particular shoppe? - N/A

~ One place that you remember having good buns: - N/A

~ Describe a new emoticon (, , etc.) that you would like to have available here, to the side of the page: - D/K

~ Is your bed nice and comfy? Any wishes for something else for it? - Very comfortable.
The only wish I have for it is a special lady to share it with, at least once in a while. My bed is king size so it's big enough for two.

~ What are your thoughts about horseradish? - By very rare chance if it's in front of me I won't use it.

~ What do you like or dislike about a roasted turkey? - Rare I have any. I notice it on Balducci's food bar every once on a while (when I visit which isn't often) and I'll go for the white meat.
I dislike that there are no mushrooms for me to put on top of it.

~ What bread would you like to have for sandwiches this coming Thanksgiving weekend? - 7 Grain Crunch from Spring Mill Bakery is my favorite and I am due to buy a loaf.
The only sandwich I will likely have next weekend is my egg, cheese, sauteed mushroom and garlic sandwich that I am so fond of. The best ever.

Thanks, Raisroosty.
Happy Friday to all!
