Foods

Mmmm, Puppy Beef.

=============================================================

Did Doritos used to be good and then start to suck, or did they always suck and I just realized it in the last few years, or are they good in America and suck in Taiwan?

=============================================================

Today I learned the difference between Creole and Cajun food. Still can't make anything besides Gumbo and blackened chicken. And when I look up new recipes online, most of them inevitably require something that I will never be able to buy locally, like Tasso.

Beer Roasted Cat

1 cat cut into roast
1 can of fucking Cream of Mushroom soup
1 cube of beef bouillon
1 clove of garlic
1 Fine Irish Stout, like Guinness

I think the website must be a joke, right?

Doritos suck. They probably taste good for the first few, and then they overwhelm you. They are designed for Americans and teenagers.

Cool Ranch is perhaps an exception.

As I get older I find myself wanting to eat "real" food - like restaurant chips with salsa rather than nacho flavored doritos.

First post reminds me of serious question: Where can we buy beef bullion cubes here? You can get cans of beef broth from meijinxiang, but they are NT$55/per, which seems like an expensive start to a simple vegetable soup.

I think you buy beef bullion broth at your local Taiwanese grocery store. They must use it for beef noodles right?

A can of broth is about the same price here in the states (maybe a couple of NT less), so there not totally gouging you.

Am I the only one who finds US$1.66 for a can of beef broth to be outrageous?

Bread said...

yes.

Crap. That means I've turned into one of those old people whose conception of prices is stuck 25 years in the past.
