I dunno - the few time's I've had Popeye's it is noticeably much more spicy than typical fast-food "spicy".

Maybe it's because the only thing I've gotten is their Spicy Chicken sandwich - I don't know if just the regular fried chicken by itself is all that spicy.

Let me tell you sonny, back in the day Popeyes's had some pop.

Had my first ever taste of Gatorade, somewhat sweat, slightly salty coloured water; probably my last taste of it too.

Wife and kids are away camping while I'm still working, so I have time on my hands and I like to try some different dishes.  But it's also the middle of the week so nothing too involved.

Last night I made: toad-in-the-hole.  I was nervous because I've never made yorkshire pudding before, but it turned out really good. :mmm:  I'll definitely try making it for the whole family next time.

My god its greasy. And takes forever to deliver.
Yes. This was their second chance and they blew it. They're the lowest of the big 3 pizza chains.

That's your mistake right there.
I disagree. The quality is a lot more reliable and safer than random takeaways.

Pizza hut has declined a bit since it shifted to being a takeaway and dominos too as it has grown bigger has gone down in quality.

Why on earth would you pick a random takeaway instead of checking reviews and looking at the menu to get an idea of quality? I can't imagine going to one of the chains (except Franco Manca). There are loads of better places.

It's take away pizza. Not a specially arranged meal. The whole point is something fast and Meh.

The really good places usually require ordering days in advance.
With reviews and such it's easy enough to avoid the terrible ones but the hundreds on 4.something tend to blend into much of a muchness. Even with hours to research identifying the best from there would be tough.

So I'm watching this lightweight British rom-com, dinner is served and the starter is various types of ham.  All thin sliced (and cold I imagine).

Made me wonder if Yuros ever eat thicker, cooked/heated up ham as an entree.

Looks like this:

In Germany/Austria we have what's called "Kassler" (Germany) or "Geselchtes" (Austria) which is salted/smoked pork. IIRC can be other meats than strictly pork butt, though.

Yeah we ate stuff like in Syt's picture when I was growing up in Denmark.

Wiki has an article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kassler

QuoteA similar dish, hamburgerryg, is eaten in Denmark.

But usually made with pork butt?

So no one else slices ham thick and cooks it up?

I wonder where that came from.

I think we do... I don't know if it's alway pork butt as opposed to other cuts.

Singapore Mei Fun (I've also seen Singapore Chow Mei Fun) is the loveliest dish you can get at a chinese takeaway.

Tried the mulligatawny soup at my Indian joint.  Kind of underwhelming for a soup that gets that much hype.

Went to a Nando's in Chicago last time I was up there.  Pretty good stuff.  I have a bottle of their medium sauce I'm planning on using to marinate a chicken for grilling.
