Leftovers again! This time, The Littlest Po’boy!


Olive Garden bread stick, sliced & toasted
5 Olive Garden fried shrimp scampi, no sauce
1 half of a Campari tomato, sliced
Romaine lettuce
Mayo
Tabasco
(Forgot to sprinkle dill on it.)

It’s a little unwieldy- the bread is just a wee bit too small- and the breading has a little “Italian” seasoning in it so the flavors was a little different, but the overall results were very tasty!
You can keep that one. Fish based not for me lol.

Used to get lobster off the rocks as a kid. Never appealed to me but the adults would tuck in.

After reading some of these recipes, I realise that my mature cheddar and peanut butter sandwich is now in no way exotic and I am a boring fusty old dudder!

I may no longer consider myself:
Out there
New age
Machiavellian
Groovy
Elegant
Voguish, or
Modern

Best with a mug of tea btw (quite dry)

How about cheese and marmite or Vegemite? Americans got to dodge that.


Aussies use Vegemite instead of marmite. That's because they're heretics and all the kangaroos jumping rattle their brains. True story.

Cheese and Marmite? Hmmm...Zard. Would buying a jar of marmite just to try this out be worth it in your opinion?

Never had the opportunity to try either marmite or vegemite.

Why is that? Everyone should try it at least once.
It's not really sold in the USA.

Only 3 countries really make it and it's an aquired taste at best.

UK, Australia, NZ have variations of it. It's exported to some countries and some specialist stores might have it.b

It tastes like salty yeast.

Up to you if you would try that. I liked it as a kid,not now.

I've seen videos online of those companies that send out boxes if food from various countries to try.

You might be able to find marmite in an NZ box.

Not sure I want to invest that much money on trying something out that is KNOWN to be polarizing!

I personally don't mind it. The trick is to spread it veeeeeery thin. I mean scrape-worthy thin. Otherwise it tastes of a way too strong beefy Bovril salt . Weird for a vegan spread. It can also be used as an ingredient in stews and other savoury sauces in which it does quite well but again, sparingly.

I will buy a pot and try it with cheese sandwich today and let you know my thoughts.

I had to Google bovril a few weeks ago.

Jeremy Clarkson made a man's drink on Top Gear using a V8.

Beef, bricks, bovril few other things. May also had a bovril drink.

Blech.

Found it.


Thankfully the last legacy of British food left is mostly cakes, biscuits pies. Ye olde roast beef and crap beer on the way out.

There is some fantastic beer out there. What beer have you tasted?

It's our old beer.

Each region basically had a variant of a British ale. Most of them were all crap.

We had 1 lager option. You could maybe get Heineken but it was expensive.

Slowly started to change in the 90s but not not a fan of ales generally.

In America they made the mono pale lager, here it was mono ale. Cheap swill.

APAs and IPAs can be good, but yeah or traditional beer sucked because it was based off 4% English ales.

And you don't serve them room temperature here it's weird.

Those older beers are mostly drunk by old people.

You don't really get English restaurants here, you might find an English bar if you look hard enough.

I'm sorry for your loss.
Batemans XP, Courage Directors, Landlord and Castle Eden are are all great bitters in traditional British pubs.
Yeah the Pale ale market has boomed to the decline of the bitter. Pale ale and Blond ale and Gold ale and anything else more creamy is popular. I don't mind them but bitter outside of pubs is getting a little more scarce IMO.

What is it abut cold drinks. Guinness, Even though it's not the great Irish stuff is now cold in the UK. It takes away the slightly bitter taste that makes it iconic and becomes more quaffable for the masses. It is no longer Guinness IMO not that it was the proper stuff anyway.
