  There's a supoib Cornish pasty joint in Cardiff, world class and all that, but then again the Corns are a cousin people of the Welsh so it's not so exciting for us.

I just made a massive pot of sweet potato (i guess youse guys call them yams) and butternut squash soup. It's cold here.

  Just finished a mint from a mini cauldron left over from the 5 lbs of halloween candy, which has dwindled to 4.75 lbs of halloween candy. Ugh.

Kid Units are enjoying some Hot Chocolate and I a cup of coffee as its snowing outside.

Chicken Noodle Soup is on tap for this evening.

Not that it matters...

When are you going to be making me unbelievably delicious baked goods?? You've got a ridiculously wonderful professional mixer.

  I'm in the office, so not a whole lot of variety around here, but I had yummy cherry and peach danishes from local German bakery for breakfast, a poblano pesto burrito for lunch (that was very tasty) and now I'm sipping on some hot English Breakfast tea trying to wake me up from all that food, so I can actually get some work done today.

  As I thought to start the thread, I was munching on a veggie sub dunked in tomato basil soup.

Today,
Mac and cheddar
Potato rosemary CHOWDA
A honeycrisp apple
Chocolate iced bavarian bismark
A handful of m&ms

How'd that work out for you?

  Glass of Milk, Odwalla "Super Protein" bar, Banana, multivitamin.

Rest o' the day is goin' to be a melange of tastings so my breakfast is usually the only solid meal.

I drank Kombucha for the first time yesterday...very intense. Love the flavor, the smell...uummmm...I enjoy vinegar and it's not enough to overwhelm me but whooo doggy! The drink does make you feel reeeaallly good, physically and mentally. I'd recommend it.

  Had to do a search on this Kombucha drinkie-poo, Ahri...because I'm not up on all the latest coastal hip drinks.
A few yellow flags went up with the health benefits of that yeastie-poo...and that was from several different sites.
Call me a doubting Addi :)

I had a bad experience with vinegar pickled cabbage in Philly a while back... Me and vinegar are now as me and teliquia are... not on speaking terms.

  I've got dinner plans for tonight at 7pm and have been ready to eat since 4pm! Me so hungy!! So I decided to check in here while I wait for dinner time and of course the first thread I click on is filled with descriptions of foods. Thanks a lot friends.

My leftover Halloween candies can only last me so long :/

  Never have been a vinegar person and couldn't take more than a few sips off a bottle of Kombucha. No flavor adventures for me in that direction.

Of course you know boss!

Today, i went to the NY Deli in old Cardiff town to sit amongst all the boxing and hockey pics (Cardiff hearts hockey and boxing) and had a supershnice Bacon and egg mayo hot bagel and a double supershnice hot chocolate with marshmallows for the cold outside.

Lastnight i made meatball marinara with pasta (sadly out of spaghetti so had to make do with fuseli)

Tonight tuna and rice with green beans, which i love almost carnally and could (and have) eat for weeks on end as my main meal.

Followed by coffee and chocolate silk pie and football on the big screen.

Ha HA, not really but I do like McNabb there. I'm mostly a Colts fan but they seem to need an offensive line and some really good team doctors.

I want an Americanese Football team to support, I'm torn between the New Orleans Saints, the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots for various reasons.

I'm leaning towards the Saints.

I have a baseball team: the LA Dodgers

and I'm considering a hockey team, though supporting anyone other than the Cardiff Devils seems weird.

I've never been inspired by basketball too much though it was one of my stronger sports in school (next to swimming and cricket weirdly enough... I fucking hate cricket) my rugby wasn't that bad either but i'm a better immovable object that irresistable force.

You have to watch the college game if you want to enjoy basketball. The pros are too good and too boring.
I can enjoy a good game of rugby but cricket seems like a trip to the twilight zone for me.
I hate baseball on tv. You have to be there to enjoy it.

  Gotcha, might just do that!

Rugby is begrudgingly one of my favourite sports. I think i like it and loathe it for the same reasons mostly as it's one sport Wales are actually ok at. Nothing like a 6 nations grandslam win in Cardiff, town turns surreal on that night!

Cricket is a sport for people who kicked a ball aganist the wall on their own for hours when they were a kid and invented a complex league system to keep their own score. People who need sport in their lives so much they'll endure a whole weekend of nothing much to add a small competitive element. It's mind numbingly mundane, LONG, needlessly complicated, and did i mention LONG!

I first got into baseball at 17. coming home from the pub at night, begging out in front of the TV and watching late night US sports on British channel 5. I got quite into it, then again i was very drunk.

It's funny that the only soccer match I've ever attended live (besides my son's matches when he was a child) was in Cardiff. I don't even remember who they were playing. The family I was staying with took me and I remember them telling me it was a shame that they weren't taking me to a rugby match, because the city was really into that.

Haha, you probably went to see a Cardiff city match back when it meant something, back when it was a mixture of sports and rioting. hopefully it wasn't a big match or you'd have seen some sights!!

If you ever get a chance to come back here please do, it's a much nicer place than it was back then, all concrete and industrial, the city centre is beautiful, especially in winter, also in winter you know what you're getting and can dress accordingly, a sunny Cardiff day is beautiful but a rainy summers day is just depressing.

At the moment the city centre is dominated by a craft market, wooden carved christmas presents, Welsh slate nick-knacks, beautiful glass lanterns, German sausage stalls, Pancakes and chestnuts and chocolate fountains with marshmallows. That'll last until January, we've got the winter wonderland and ice rink outside the museum, and all the Victorian indoor arcades are inviting and beautifully decorated.

And of course lets not forget the brand new Cardiff bay development and the massive Millennium centre and the ruddy, great big castle slap bang in the middle of town. Also parks you can safely walk through after dark (more or less).

Holy god gingerbread. And peppermint hot chocolate. Also I have just started a life-long love of shortbread that I wish had started back when my granny used to make it and not in Japan where I have to buy it from an international food shop one hour and two train rides away. (de mo, Scottish, delicious)

Sounds lovely. I most definitely need to make a trip back there to see the changes. I was there the fall of '79, and all I remember is a cold, cloudy, gloomy city...full of things really old compared to the U.S.

Someday, mat...someday...and you and I will share a pint and have a few good natured laughs over Paul. ; )

Do it Addi! We'll kick up a storm old fashioned style, 79 would probably represent CDF at her worst after the industry boom and before the beautification following the establishment of the Welsh Assembly government in 1997. We're a lot better now!

  If we're talking about Hello Panda, then there's no good reason why you're not nomming those tasty biznatches. Cute box. Cute prints. I suppose if you didn't like chocolate, strawberry or vanilla filling, those would be decent reasons, but not good reasons.
