No wonder it has one bland taste. Soweli Nasa April 8, 2021 at 1:12 am 2 years ago I hope Groonth gets a legitimate gyros before she dies. Garth Hill April 8, 2021 at 6:03 am 2 years ago i was thinking the same about handmade Indian samosas and also Malaysian roti. Meran April 9, 2021 at 6:36 am 2 years ago One year, we decided to make our own Indian food, appetizers to dessert. We spent the entire day, then we were too tired to eat. The samosas were the hardest (everything was very delicious! ) It’s cheaper to go to the restaurant… Coyoty April 8, 2021 at 1:28 am 2 years ago In addition to gin & tonic and Swedish meatballs, every planet that claims to have intelligent life somehow has the condiments ketchup, mustard, and gripacH. Except for Earth, which somehow never had gripacH, and that’s what’s holding it back. I mean, how can you have a civilized planet without gripacH? Nova April 8, 2021 at 6:13 am 2 years ago They say the ancient Romans developed it, but it was lost in antiquity… Keith April 8, 2021 at 8:08 am 2 years ago Because for some organic chemistry reason I’m not smart enough to understand…it is incompatible with our biology. What’s really sad is, I’ve never been anywhere that has good dwarven bread. M.A. April 9, 2021 at 12:59 am 2 years ago I made some once. Used it as a bookend for years… FlySwatter April 8, 2021 at 6:56 am 2 years ago That’s what happens when you go to the gruel buffet, Goonth. Looks like we’re going to see the symbiont return sooner than later. Efogoto April 8, 2021 at 4:02 pm 2 years ago Crunchy gruel? Isn’t that a warning sign of some sort? alinfamous April 8, 2021 at 9:02 am 2 years ago While raiding Earth they did like human snacks. someone April 8, 2021 at 9:11 am 2 years ago Should have gotten the Russian cookies, Goonth. They’re apparently the only tasty thing available in space, ever since furryite sandwiches have been discontinued. Mgnostic April 8, 2021 at 10:36 am 2 years ago The buffet/cafeteria line is almost always spiced to the lowest common denominator. This is true even for Tex-Mex which is expected to be at least a little bit spicy. At my favorite Asian restaurant the difference between the buffet and ordering from the menu is like night and day. notStanley April 8, 2021 at 12:43 pm 2 years ago Life may be feeling a little bland at the moment, but trying to spice it back up with a symbiont might be a bit too much to the other end of the scale. KQY April 8, 2021 at 3:07 pm 2 years ago That large condiment dispenser is about the same color as the Symbiont. Hmmmm. Pete Rogan April 8, 2021 at 3:48 pm 2 years ago Food……in……SPAAAAAAACE!! And here I am trying to not imagine what Klingon sushi would be like. I think I’d need a knife for it. ‘Cause I KNOW it’s going to fight back. Muzhik April 8, 2021 at 9:21 pm 2 years ago So there appears to be a container for a ketchup analog, and a mustard analog. Is that large grey container for Tobasco? Sean K. April 8, 2021 at 9:32 pm 2 years ago That’s the mercury dispenser. Not recommended for some species… 0z79 April 8, 2021 at 10:22 pm 2 years ago Something tells me it’s going to be much harder to get the Symbiote this time. p0indexterous April 9, 2021 at 9:53 pm 2 years ago Two days ago I bought a jar of tomatillo salsa from a Mexican Mercado that I had just discovered behind an old strip mall. The ingredients list was tomatillos, jalapenos Serranos, vinegar etc… Perfect! I made enchiladas last night and I was so eager to try my new authentic salsa on them. After my first bite i was running for the milk. Further reading of the ingredients list showed habaneros and scotch bonnets, and “Extremadamente caliente!” boldly printed on the lid. I will gladly donate this jar to Goonth to liven up her food. Muzhik April 10, 2021 at 7:17 pm 2 years ago I had a similar problem when a store doing “shopping and delivery” for my groceries accidentally included a bottle of the “medium” spiced salsa instead of the “mild” salsa I had ordered. I just mixed the new stuff with my existing mild salsa half-and-half, and came up with something surprisingly good. (It was easier than getting the order fixed.) I suspect you’ll have to mix it 1-tenth new salsa to 9-tenths existing salsa. Also, try doubling or even tripling the amount of cheese in your enchiladas. 0z79 April 11, 2021 at 4:15 pm 2 years ago Heh… so that’s why there’s so much cheese in “authentic” tex-mex up here. Kinda rare to find a taste of El Paso in an area where people consider ketchup spicy. p0indexterous April 12, 2021 at 1:59 pm 2 years ago Cheese does help lower the burn.mouth Words for the Chili Challenged: Coffee creamer is aloe vera for the mouth. rwstyles April 11, 2021 at 4:29 pm 2 years ago I can barely detect the heat in “hot” salsa. My mom would have agreed with you. p0indexterous April 12, 2021 at 1:50 pm 2 years ago Yeah, I’ve found out, through trial and error, that a tsp of it is about right for a serving. It adds a great taste. Now, when I make Mexican food, to coin a phrase, “I put that shit on everything”, in moderation of course. I have a pretty high tolerance for chili’s, I don’t find most “hot” salsas that spicy, but this salsa is truly extreme. p0indexterous April 12, 2021 at 1:56 pm 2 years ago I thought about doing that but my wife and sister-in-law have a much lower tolerance for chili’s, so I’ll just mix it on my food. Zero April 10, 2021 at 4:10 am 2 years ago Oh no, she has COVID. Muzhik April 10, 2021 at 7:19 pm 2 years ago No, it’s just that when the sign said “Fine Dining”, she thought it meant “good food”. Instead, it just meant everything was ground into a very fine paste. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
