Shirley you cannot be serious? Tapioca pudding is the food of the gods.

OK, I guess this is another food "challange". I don't think I've ever had tapioca pudding. I've just got to make some and try it. I didn't realize that tapioca is the starch from cassava tubers. These guys have to be one of the most unlikely foodstuffs as they contain cyanide (removed before eating, of course). I'll report back.

Doubt it, Ralph....

Nothing that looks like a milky bowl of fish eyes could possibly be ambrosial.

Hearkening back to the congee discussion on llizard's forum, and recalling that I tend to prefer Asian breakfasts when in Asia, I decided to try the congee for breakfast on the plane back from Asia. Opened the foil cover. Not promising-looking. Looked like pablum. Had chunks of what looked and vaguely tasted like chicken and some kind of beans. Not really dreadful for flavour but not good either. The texture was really horrid.

Not like the delicious and soothing breakfast congee I had have for breakfast in several other countries in Asia.

On another forum, someone asked what kind of salad to take to a staff party. I suggested that wondrous thing: salad-in-a-bag. Add some a nice vinaigrette and you're set. I was ignored because it wasn't congealed or an ambrosia type salad. This is the recipe that other people on the forum were apparently salivating over:

SNICKER APPLE SALAD

2 (8oz.)pkgs. cream cheese, softened
2 tubs Cool Whip
1 C. sugar
5-6 apples, cut up
6 Snicker bars, cut up.

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.

This seems like an enormous waste of snickers bars, apples and cream cheese. It has a cup of sugar in it? Question Exclamation Question What are they thinking? Could this be further from the idea of salad Question

This reminds me of a disastrous dinner we had in a small town in Northern Ontario. We asked around town where the really GOOD restaurant for dinner was. We were sent by several townsfolk to a beautiful 19th century house that had been turned into a restaurant. They all said it was fantastic and that we should make sure we saved room for dessert because the pastry chef was faboulous.

The house was gorgeous.

The dinner? We asked what we should have and the waitress raved about several dishes but recommended one or two over the others as being truly stellar. We were excited and told her that we would have what she recommended.

Yikes. EVERYTHING, from appetizer on - was syruppy sweet. The snicker apple salad would not have been out of place. I'm afraid we didn't manage to try dessert. Who can have dessert if dessert has been served for dinner? stomp

* *! * * * * *! * * *

If I were taking something salad-like to a staff party, I would take julienned carrots, zucchini, celery and broccoli, cauliflower florets along with a dip made from sourcream or yoghurt, dill, chives. Or that fabulous spinach/waterchestnut dip that is put into a hollowed out loaf of rye bread. Even though I love it, I've never actually made it. But this recipe looks about right: http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,171,147178-225205,00.html

Yikes boo! boo!

My face is trying to cope between being squinched up in horror and trying to laugh hysterically. Squinched-up-in-horror is winning.

I suppose they think the presence of the apples makes it a salad.

I would add smarties for more of that salad crunch. la la la Perhaps only green smarties, for more of that salad greenness. hohoho
