Food Appreciation & Discussion Thread

Frozen desserts are great.

Just discovered Mochi Ice Cream today. THANKS COSTCO!

Also on my near-term agenda:

Recently, I was eating a lot of frozen blended fruit with a bit of milk and just having it plain or adding some toppings (like a smoothie bowl). I have a Blendtec Twister jar which does a great job of blending fruit without needing to add a lot of liquid (it basically turns frozen fruit into fruity like soft serve, pretty amazing). I have been using this fruit:

hmm this looks promising as well

I think I’ve mentioned this before but I’m quite happy with how gracefully Discourse handles images as far as letting you paste straight in from the clipboard

I renamed this topic to make it more generic

EDIT: apparently the food-appreciation-discussion-thread part of the URL in https://discuss.criticalfallibilism.com/t/food-appreciation-discussion-thread/136/ is inessential. You can remove it or make it https://discuss.criticalfallibilism.com/t/potato/136 or whatever and still get the correct topic. So I guess that’s why you can rename stuff and it’s fine

Re: mochi :ice_cream: , the mango :mango: and strawberry were great, but the green tea :tea: tastes a bit weird to me

I don’t know about the specific mochi you have, but I’ve often had matcha in green tea mochi. I think the matcha has a stronger taste than green tea - it’s more like matcha mochi with green tea.

i checked the ingredients and “Matcha Green Tea” indeed appears

I was thinking of matcha as something additional to green tea, but according to this article it’s just a different type of growing and processing of green tea: Matcha: Health Benefits, Nutrients per Serving, Preparation Information, and More

Anyway, it does have a different flavor from just regular green tea.

the green tea flavor is growing on me a bit, might be an acquired taste

I’ve made meatball sandwich flatbreads with naan, ready-to-microwave meatballs, mozzarella, and tomato sauce a few times recently. Pretty good and fast. Reminiscent of subway’s meatball sandwich. Best served with a side of potato chips!

deep fried hash browns are pretty great

Costco Beef Ravioli Lasagna with Pork & Bolognese Sauce (bake-at-home meal, not frozen) is pretty good

Five Guys is my favorite chain cheeseburger

frozen mandarin oranges = yum :tangerine:

This tea has a nice flavor and is caffeine free

Rotisserie chickens are nice (and cheap). I like reheating the chicken with a bit of olive oil in a pan.
