Feed Us Back: Comments of the Week
– Our college eating suggestions brought out a great idea from Yvo: Easy Mac also came out way, way after I was in college. I can’t say from experience, but, ahem, I hear you can make it without a microwave by, um, running the hot water in the sink as hot as it’ll go for a few minutes, then using that. I would not advise trying this.
I would DEFINITELY advise someone trying this, just so we can know if it works.
– Meanwhile, JakeSG’s tico report got everyone hungry
Pinch o Minch: That all looks amazing. I’d be a tad skeptical of dessert that looks like soap, though.
Britannia disagreed: The jello looks like a piece of bacon, even more appetizing!
– But it was 80’s latest artsy photo that laid down the challenge…
Jeb: We can get a 5 gallon bucket of blackberries for $18 down here in Durham
To which I clearly responded: and what does one do with five gallons of blackberries?
V.V. Good Girl thankfully took the bait: Ohhh…what can you NOT do! I’ve been regretting for weeks my purchase of a pint when I really wanted a huge bucket (the price tag held me back). First, I would eat as many as I could while rinsing (nothing like a warm blackberry). Second, pack in my lunch to mix in with greek yogurt. Third, freeze for smoothies, fancy cocktail ice cube or eat plain on a hot afternoon. Fourth, I make a pretty tasty peach & blackberry cobbler – in a large pan or individual ramekins. Fifth, mash with a fork with some quality maple syrup to pour over pancakes/waffles. Sixth, experiment using in a vinaigrette. Well now you’ve done it BS…I’ll be heading to the Durham farmer’s market Saturday for a bucket. What about an entree with blackberries?!?
How ’bout it, folks? I know one of you has a blackberry entree…
