Food Chat - Dinner conversation anyone?

For all your pre- and post-PAW food and beverage recipes. Just because it keeps you alive doesn't mean it shouldn't be tasty.

Things that'll really mess with you: I didn't know that meatloaf was typically tomato-based growing up. Ours was made with cream of mushroom soup.

Yeah, that'll get me for sure. I projectile vomit when fed mushrooms in any form. Something in my biology that they do not agree with.

If I ever end up cooking for you, you might remind me of that.

Will do. If I remember. :ohdear:

I've never had a meatloaf sandwich.

Matter of fact, it wasn't up until a few years ago that I first had meatloaf. Never thought to make it until just a few years ago.
You're missing some good eating then. Take a slice straight out of the leftovers in the fridge, put it on your choice of bread and garnish with a bit of ketchup or whatever you like, and eat it just like that. I've woken up at 3AM and made one of those. Good stuff! :mrgreen:
The meatloaf I eat doesn't last long enough to make a sandwich.

It may fall apart, but it's still tasty and gets eaten quickly. :clap:

Not a big fan of mushrooms either. I don't vomit if I eat something with them in it, I just don't like the taste of them.

My mother makes a chicken taco casserole that uses cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup and I really can't taste any of the mushroom. Of course the taco seasoning probably covers it, so that could be why.

Well, you've got a couple more mouths to feed down there. Up here it's just me and the wife. (the cats ask for it but we don't let them have meatloaf because of the onions)

Yeah, with four people in the house, meatloaf tends to go pretty quickly.

Most foods tend to go quickly now that I think about it.

I don't mind the taste of mushrooms, it's the texture that gets me. Yech.

Like 90% of the foods I don't like are due to texture, though.

I pissed my mother off royally at a restaurant because I refused to eat the fettuccine alfredo because I didn't like the texture of the cheese. They had freshly grated parmesan on the top that was too "sharp" texture-wise for me. I realized years later that all they had to do was nuke it for 10 seconds (or maybe even just mix it up) and I would have been perfectly fine with it.

I've tried stuffed mushrooms exactly one time in my life and I immediately spit it back out because the texture and flavor was just weird.

I've heard folks describe mushrooms as having an "earthy" taste, which to me just sounds like a fancy way of saying something tastes like dirt.

Which is exactly what those mushrooms tasted like. Dirt stuffed with parmesan and cheddar cheese.

Had warm sourdough bread and fresh butter instead.
