Food and Cooking / Re: Coffee, brewed vs. instant ?
« Last post by Moe M. on Today at 06:19:14 AM »
If you like fake coffee......who knows, you may even develop a hankerin' for fake cheese.  O:-)  :shrug:

 Afraid not Bud,  Back a few years ago I ran across a small recipe booklet that had a section devoted to Velveeta, one of the recipes was for Mac & Cheese, another that sounded interesting was for a Salsa/cheese melt nacho dip, I tend to be pretty open minded where it comes to food and trying something different, so I picked up two blocks of Velvetta while at the super market.
 A couple of days later I followed the recipe as it was laid out in the booklet, as it turned out it was edible probably for someone who has little appreciation for good food or has damaged taste buds, it turned out pretty bland and had very little cheese taste, as someone who loves the cheddar taste of real Mac & Cheese it was pretty disappointing.
 Next I made a salsa and added some Velveeta to it and warmed it in the microwave to melt the cheese, it actually wasn't too bad but not outstanding, or quite as good as if I'd have used a good blend of cheddar and jack cheese.
 Overall I was not impressed with either dish or in any part of Velveeta,  so the last half block went unused, it lived in the back of the cheese compartment of my fridge for the better part of a year before I noticed the box again,  I was almost afraid to lift the cover off the box figuring that it must surely be covered in blue/green mold, but my curiosity got the best of me and I took a look inside the box.
 Nothing, it looked just the same as when I cut it in half, put it back in it's box and placed it in the fridge,  that's what prompted me to read the ingredients list on the box, it's no wonder it didn't go bad, it doesn't contain any natural organic food products (let alone any cheese),  it's all either chemical or plant byproducts,  put simply, it's a plastic imitation cheese look alike.
 There's actually nothing phony about Postum, it's a powdered drink mix made of ground natural whole grains, it was never advertised (as far as I know) as coffee,  the original recipe tasted like what it was made from, Postum now offers it in a "coffee flavor" as well, but is honest in it's advertising,  unlike Velveeta that still insists on including the word "Cheese" on it's packaging.

I just got my hands all sticky.  Can't believe I fell for that.

But did you do it in front of a bunch of coworkers? Well unfortunately I did. I am going to have to something big before they will let that one go. Lol.  :-[.

XJ, you sir caught that quick, I tip my hat to you and your superior intellect. I should have read your post first.

That's correct, Unk.....there is no trychinosis in any of the government inspected hogs produced in the U.S.A. today.  Cooking pork roasts or chops to a slightly 'pink' degree of doneness is perfectly safe these days......juicier and better tasting, too. :drool:

Don't care what they say, I will only eat it well done.

I don't think so. The bottom cutting edge flips backwards when it hits something. Not sure what plow it is. My old fisher the whole blade would tilt forward and jump over.

My driveway and front lawn is very flat and mostly sand so there isn't much to worry about.

Comon' it's not April 1st. It's a joke. You can see the sparks fly out just before it lights up and the two small puddles of burning fluid on the ground. I've never seen fatwood light that quick. Birch maybe. check those other links, the Altoids one is awesome.

I know I'm gullible but... :shrug:

My dad liked coffee with chicory in it------Blecchhh!   :puke:   That is some nasty schitt!

Worked with a guy from southern Louisiana aboard an aircraft carrier (CVA59) back in the early '70s. He'd get a care package of chicory coffee from home and then commandeer the coffee pot for a day. Much to the dismay of everyone else. I tried a cup once to see what the fuss was about. Your right. That is some nasty schitt.  :) I think you have to be born and raised on it to appreciate the taste.
