Yes, fattening high cholesterol foods. Potentially deadly, but also delicious.
I am glad my blood pressure is low, so far..... I can still indulge.

Kosher is a way food is prepared, handled and cook and a Rabbi has to certify it. Even if meat is handled Kosher and blessed by a Rabbi it has to be prepared Kosher also. Like for example you can not have meat and dairy together. I had a Jewish friend get in trouble for serving the wrong food at a USA Independence day party. I told her to be careful but she did not listen, i am not Jewish but i know many things about being Kosher. One as i said is you are NOT supposed to mix meat and dairy, so a hamburger is ok but a cheese burger no, she fixed a bunch of cheese burgers! This Rabbi that we did not know was a rabbi was there with his husband, yes he was totally gay and like stereotypical also! He blew up hands flying up and snapping his fingers, head bobbing, saying funny things and  cussing her out in Yiddish! But being Kosher is a whole lifestyle food is just part of it. Like i know you can not wear natural with synthetic clothes either.

I would laugh so hard though to see Marilyn asking for pork! he hee

As far as this topic, one thing i have found in Budapest is really neat is doughnuts that have filling but still a hole! NEVER in anywhere in US did i see that! I love that! I love Krispy Kreme! If they are in Hungary let me know! I have talked to some Russians that said and showed me that there are many KK in Russia, i saw a youtube of one in Svestipool.

And i am from the USA so sometimes i want to go american! So i am glad Budapest does have T G I Fridays! I have the loyalty card that is for Budapest, Wien, Warsaw and i do not recall the other places in this zone. They left most of FL so i was glad they are here! It is easier to go to them here then before we moved.

I suppose it is best to eat what the locals eat in any country, they usually do it right.

Uhm. Well. Maybe. But not always to my tastes. For example, ever been to Malawi?

Again, not judging. And protein is protein. But.... uhm.... er.... no.

Too easy.

You could have come back with something. 

Chocolate ant anyone?

After you raised me Haggis I folded because I did not want to escalate this friendly match to the nuclear option..... mountain oysters.

I think we already had that one - it was a while back under sweetmeats/sweetbreads. 

It's all just awful offal.

You could have raised me a Durian or rather obviously seen me with Kimchi.

I think Kimchi would have been at North Korean threat level. Defcon 3 perhaps.

But.... but.... those are fruits and vegetables..... The pacifist of the culinary world. Could I ethically bring them into this? (Said I, while pelting you with popcorn.....).

"Yous guys "are too funny!!...Love it!
Just served our dinner.
Took me about 7-8 hours to cook a tyuk broth.
Had some nice brown rice with tarja in garlic with some homemade vadas sauce.
Side of fresh spinach  salad with grated carrots, red onions raw sunflower seeds and a nice homemade herb dressing.
mineral water and red wine.
Can't get that combo just anywhere, one reason I like to eat at home.
I can't even understand how anyone can eat at a fast food joint unless they are on the road and have no time.
Neither of us wishes to gain any weight at all but so far we stay "",even Steven, guess fresh food is the answer.

Well now, fruit and veg maybe pacifist but in the wrong hands anything can happen.  And ethics are relative. My parallel is nuclear fission/fusion - for "good" and for evil.  Nuclear power vs nuclear bomb.  Icelandic rotten fish vs "Tempura".  I could go on - and I often do - on and on and on...

Strangely enough,  I've just heard on the radio about some Exotic Popcorn.

7h!! Too long but sounds nice if complicated. 

With the kids in the house things get simplified.  I had a lunch of fish fingers and a tomato salad with Dutch style mayo. Kids are always so ravenous on return from school they just need to eat quickly. Somewhat like locusts!   

And it's not even 16.45h and it's dark!  Terrible!

My husband bought that "old bird" the Tyuk, easy breezy just pop in a pot and let it simmer all day long with some spices and onion. Makes a great broth for cooking with.
When he was a crazy full time surfer on Maui in our youth, he refused to get a "normal" job because the working hours got in the way of surfing.
For over 18 months he worked at night part-time at the Hilton on Maui in the kitchen. A crazy job , they hired about 6 crazy Hungarians to clean the kitchen at night.
They always were allowed to eat whatever was in the fridge and sometimes they left huge platters of sushi out for the night crew.
He said the trick with his 5 star restaurants is having a huge pot of boiling broth to mix with just about anything.
What a life, surfer, machinist and cabbie all rolled into one.Jack of all trades is about the best way to live if one wants to travel around.
He also worked closer to home on Maui later on for a short time in a really, really nice Mexican restaurant on Maui. That was about the only one on the Island in the mid 70's.
He ate for free and needed to eat allot with all that surfing, was in the best shape of his life with all that swimming.
We both gave up all  red meat at that time and he still had enough energy for 6 to 8 hours a day of surfing. He did eat fish but not daily.
