There was this Pizza Hut a 5 minute walk from my dorm when I was there, so that was my go-to hangover spot.

Pretty much the only reason why I had that was because it was the closest fast food place nearby that I could order online beforehand lol.

Oh mate, the problem with the kebab is that A) you're going to feel so much worse and B) you never know what meat it is.

One time, I asked the guy what meat it was and he just shrugged and said "meat". I don' think he knew. It tasted like roadkill. Probably was.

Anywhere I live, I make a point of scouting the local kebab joints so I know which ones are decent. Did it for years. Because yeah, there is really nothing worse than a dodgy kebab.

I signed up for a CSA Box (community supported agriculture) where every week or two you get a full box of fresh vegetables and fruits directly from local farms. The great part about it is that it's pretty much random (although you have the ability to modify your box online before you get it - I swapped okra for turnips) so when you get your box you are essentially forced to cook or prepare these foods quickly so that they don't spoil and you take advantage of the farm freshness.

Today I spent almost 3 hours in the kitchen preparing butternut squash soup and the most incredible mixed greens with bacon and onions. Straight up down home southern food (except the chicken was seared and baked instead of fried) that made the kitchen smell amazing. I've been trying to make more conscious decisions to get my ingredients locally and without preservatives and added bullshit. So far I haven't regretted my decision.

Anyone else doing the farm to table thing?

I take full advantage of my parent's large garden every year.

Whenever it's picking time for potatoes and leeks, I make a big pot of potato and leek soup. When it's time to pick the eggplants, I make eggplant parmesan. Tomatoes are always in season at the middle/end of summer and a lot of my tomato sauces are made using those. My parents pawn off their green and yellow beans to me like there's no tomorrow, it's almost like we eat beans 3-4/7 days of the week. All sorts of different ways we eat em as well - with mozzarella, lightly fried in olive oil w/ almonds, just plain ol' boiled with some honey, etc.

That's as close as I get to farm to table, persay. I should take full advantage of our local farmer's market as it's really close to where we live, but we never get around to it.

Ugh, yes. Love it when mine or a family members garden overproduces and I get to reap the benefits. I have two little raised beds where I plant tomatoes in one and peppers in the other. This year my tomatoes have been shit (and nicked by the local squirrels and rabbits) but my ghost pepper plant was an absolute beast. I made some totally insane hot sauce so I'll mark it as a win. Previous years have given me better tomatoes and jalapenos though so I need to improve the quality of my soil methinks.

I need to get a farmers almanac and figure out the proper times to plant and harvest various vegetables in my region and upgrade my shitty little garden.

Yeah we only just this summer started hitting up the Farmer's market every Saturday morning for fresh fruit and veg and all kinds of other local goodies. We are surrounded by farms, it's pretty silly that we haven't been buying immediately local until now. Just last week I was out for a drive not even 10 minutes outside of town, and drove past a very busy farm stand.

The Farmer's market runs indoors during the winter as well, looking forward to the seasonal offerings.

As I understand it, it's meat that is chemically scoured from the bones of carcasses after all the proper cuts have been taken. Then it's processed, seasoned and reformed into those great rotating cylinders of amorphous brown shit we all know and regret. At that stage, it basically doesn't matter what it was originally.

The last time I had a kebab was in Berlin. We were staying in Neukolln which has a big Turkish immigrant population, and we'd read about how you have to try an authentic Turkish kebab while you're there. So we found this Turkish joint and ordered a kebab. It turned out to be the exact same horrendous shit you find on any British high street at 3am. The worst thing was that we hadn't even been drinking, and eating one while sobre really hammers home just how bad they really are. So if you're ever in Berlin, don't believe that particular piece of hype.

lmao, "authentic turkish kebap". It's authentic in the way western chinese food is authentic, it's basically it's own thing. The döner-kepab as is now popular in Europe was actually invented in Berlin.

And yeah, if you're getting meat with it, it's going to be awful. The going rate here is around 2,5 to 4,5 euros, at that price it's just not possible for these small shops to source meat that isn't ghastly. No one wants to or can pay the price that it would cause to source decent meat, which would probably put the price closer to 10 euros than 5.

Yeah so like I said, lots of idiots sided with the Confederates but we were never officially Confederates since most of us agreed with the Union.

I've been reading up on it, and it's quite interesting. We study very little about the Civil War here, like I said, and I'm trying to "fill this gap" now.

That's pretty standard, actually.

Most "authentic" chinese food, such as chop suey, is actually from the US. Hell, even Brazilian wax, as foreigners know it, definitely wasn't used like that in Brazil until we re-learned from Americans.

Loved Mustafa's Gemuese Kebab Best one that I ate while I was in Berlin. There was a guy choping kepab meat with a sword.

+ Berliner Pielsner for full experience

Fucking Christ. I knew they were bad but not tht horrific. Basically sounds like chemically seasoned offal.

I'm glad I haven't eaten one for over a decade and eating one sober will make you never eat another one again.
