Favourite Food
CorDrine Posted: Tue Sep 7 00:31:27 2004 Post | Quote in Reply  
  When you were young, say 5, 6 years old? What was your favourite food or drink? Do you still like them now?

Ever eaten your favourite so much that you threw up and now never touch it?

  The reason I'm asking is because I am very deprive of my favourite food right now --> EGGS! due to some bird flu scare in the region :( I realize I have gone a week without my protein source, and its driving me mad!

When I was a kid, I love fried eggs with cheese! Or fried eggs with soya sauce. Basically, just fried eggs. When I can't have that, boil eggs, steam eggs, and almost any eggs will do (except century eggs)

Favourite drink --> ribena!

And food I've eaten till I was sick? Chocolate ice cream with banana. Durians. And Fried Koay Teow. I still eat them today though.

Oh man! I hate Klim! My mum never disolve it properly for me! There's always little ball of powder milk in my milk! P-ui! Hate it! Hated milk when I was a kid! But I love fresh milk now

Yeah man, love those noddles still!

  French-cut potato fries. Yes. No.

Eggs are one of those things I'm not too fond of, but eat anyway. I had boiled duck eggs with Mouse once and loved them. My favorite eggs are the Cadbury (Cadberry?) mini kind. ;)

  French Fries and chocolate. Mmm. I also love peaches.

I like bready things...i love good french bread, muffins, croissants, cake, brownies...those kinds of things. They're my weakness.

I don't remember what i liked the most as a kid. i remember liking fruity candy a lot more back then, but now its not worth it unless its chocolate.

  cheeseburgers, lemon meringue pie, popcorn chicken, subway cookies, and lollies. Always lollies.

  oops i thought it was favourite foods now :P

As a kid, lollies. That's about it. I got tested for diabetes every 3months, because of the suspicious lolly consumption :P

Drink? Hmmm. Was milo, then I spewed it up once and the milk had seperated from the milo and it came out in white lumps and brown water. Never again.

I miss my ducks, their eggs tasted better than chickens and they weren't as mean, I'll have to get more of them next spring.

I was racking my brain for this one but I finally remembered one of my favorite foods. Jerusalem artichokes, we grew them in our garden. I haven't had access to them since we left that house. I don't remember anything else in particular but I'm sure there were a lot of different things, my mom was a great cook.

  I used to love sunny-side-up eggs as a kid... then got hepatitis from eating bad molluscs and was forbidden to eat them. I craved them so! Then, when I was better, I tried them and hated them... yech

To drink, I think it was rice water... You know, the kind where you soften rice in water and then blend it with evaporated and condensed milk, with lots of cinnamon. Had too much as a kid though, and hate it now.

I also used to love this nestle powdered cereal called "cerelac" here in mexico. They had discontinued it, then they brought it out again, but it's more like flakes instead of powder now... And doesnt taste the same...

And I cant believe I'm hearing someone from the other side of the world talk about milo... It's been discontinued here for a while now, but I still remember it...

*gasp*
CERELAC!

They totally ruined it now.


Is your rice water the same as arroz con leche? I love that stuff too.


 
erikagm Posted: Tue Sep 7 12:10:23 2004 Post | Quote in Reply  
  Nope, arroz con leche is a dessert, kind of like a pudding... it tastes pretty similar though, now that you mention it, but rice water is basically the following

You let a cup of rice soak overnight in water or milk.
Next day, you blend it with a can of condensed milk, a can of evaporated milk, cinammon, and more water til it has a watery consistency. Add sugar to personal liking.

that's it, for the most part...

Yeah, I agree with you, although I'm surprised someone else knows it! Hehehe

I used to eat it by the spoonfuls, without milk... I could eat a whole can of the stuff in one sitting...

Ah... The good ol' days...

My family is Ecuadorian...I grew up on that stuff : ) We used to be able to buy it here in a small area of Toronto called Kensington Market [one of my favourite places]. They now sell the new stuff but it's just not the same.

And of course I know what arroz con leche is! I just never heard of the rice water...I'm gonna ask my grandma : )

  for breakfast I loved hot chocolate with buttered toast that I would dunk in the chocolate. I made me the man I am today : )

for lunch I remember loving my mother's home made macaroni and cheese (not from a box). I still make it.

K, I will!
Unfortunately, Hurricane Frances is trying to blow her and my grandpa away so I have to wait til they get back to Toronto...stupid storm. [Though, I actually really like storms...but when they aren't holding my family hostage].

SO delicious.
My grandma also used to give me a small cup of cafe au lait and that was even better than the hot chocolate.

  Anybody ever have Farley's Rusks or was that a UK thing, those things with milk were the bomb, I think McVities or one of the other Biscuit Nazis have robbed them now and reports from a ladyfriend of mine clainm they're not a shadow on what they were.


One thing i've noticed about this thread is people are saying that things now are not as good, i wonder how true that is. Is it because certain ingredients are not used anymore due to distribution changes or banning under hygiene laws.

Maybe it's because like me you can taste anymore due to excess consumption of various adult beverages and non candy based cigarettes??

Gee i missed steamed pies, i don't think cafes in this country are allowed to make em any more, steamed pies were gorgeous

hey addi did you ever try mammoth?

I've never even seen a candy cigarette. o_o
Now I want sugar, consarn it! Bad Mouse.

When I was little I used to dig up wild carrots and pick wild strawberries, play under thickets and splash in streams. God I miss being a child. *sigh*

lol

Arnold would call us girlie men

I still keep mine fairly long. I have a few gray ones popping in, but for the most part my hair is still light brown and as plentiful as when I was a teen. Thank god. It's the one physical characteristic I admit I'm vain about.

I cut it short once, but immediately started thinking like a republican, which scared the shit out of me, so I will always keep it long from now on.

*Plus, like Samson, it's the source of my secret sexual powers. So secret that nobody knows about them... including me.

Keep strumming your banjo friend : )
