cheeseburger taco I AM AMERICAN

yeah it was pretty silly but basically just had ground beef with lettuce tomato and cheese dip and jalapeno mayo or something

it's this place that has a basic menu of tacos and build your own enchiladas, but has a rotating list of "specials" and that was one of em

Taqueria del Sol, perhaps? My uncle who lives in Stone Mountain absolutely loves that restaurant. I've eaten there with him a couple of times, and your description of the place you ate sounds like it would fit this place.

We had some leftover baked potatoes in the fridge that I used to make a basic potato soup with in the new Vitamix last night. It was OK, but a little bland. There's some left that I think I'm going to add some bacon crumbles, cheese and chives to and try it again as loaded baked potato soup.

No, it was just chicken bone broth, milk, potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, and a bit of Italian seasoning (the recipe called for rosemary but that's the closest thing I could find in the spice cabinet).

jfc i didn't even remember that i'd had the cheeseburger taco before :lol:

like practically the same order except who knows what sauce i had on my enchilada that time and i guess may have had either the salsas or cheese dip on the side but didn't say so maybe not

pasta rosa sounds good tbh

Oh god I normally love pasta rosa too! But this place sucks. Sometimes it's great but most often it's hard noodles with cheese just melted on top. I ended up ordering the veggie grinder and a side of hillbilly bread...
fuck it

quark

 

:bey:

Quark is a type of fresh dairy product made by warming soured milk to 20–27 °C until the desired degree of curdling is met, and then straining it.[1] It can be classified as fresh acid-set cheese,[2] though in some countries it is traditionally considered a distinct fermented milk product.[3] Traditional quark is made without rennet, but in some modern dairies rennet is added.[4] It is soft, white and unaged, and usually has no salt added.

It is common in the cuisines of German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg), northern Europe (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden), the Netherlands,[5][6][7] Hungary, Belgium, Albania, Israel, Romania, of Slavic peoples (e.g. Czechs, Slovaks, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians, Slovenes, Croats, Macedonians, Bulgarians, and Serbs), and of Ashkenazi Jews.[8] It is also fairly common in Canada as well as in the northeastern and midwestern United States.

Dictionaries sometimes translate it as curd cheese, cottage cheese, farmer cheese or junket. In Germany, quark and cottage cheese are considered to be different types of fresh cheese, while in Eastern Europe cottage cheese is usually viewed as a type of quark (e.g. Russian for cottage cheese is "зернёный творог" zernyony tvorog, literally "grainy quark").

Quark is similar to French fromage blanc, Indian paneer, and the queso fresco/queijo fresco made in the Iberian Peninsula and in some Latin American countries. It is distinct from Italian ricotta because ricotta (Italian "recooked") is made from scalded whey. Quark is somewhat similar to yogurt cheeses such as the South Asian chak(k)a, the Arabic labneh, and the Central Asian suzma or kashk, but while these products are obtained by straining yogurt (milk fermented with thermophile bacteria), quark is made from soured milk fermented with mesophile bacteria.

It's popular here as a low-fat replacement for sour creme or creme fraiche. It also has a decent amount of protein which makes it way healthier. It tastes like what's this a cross-over episode of yogurt and sour creme.

yeah that sounds like what everyone over here uses greek yogurt for now :W 

 

i actually just use regular old plain yogurt a lot in things as a replacement for sour cream but that quark sounds good, too bad ive never seen it anywhere here

It'll come around. it's a bit more rich in taste than greek yogurt and works better combined with savory foods. it's perfect for burritos the like

oh yeah definitely i notice more variety in our cheese selection every year, really. for xmas i was asked to bring appetizers and i ended up bringing some flavored goat cheese and crackers which is pretty much a staple of such things at this point, but then also i made some grilled halloumi squares with pesto and cherry or grape tomato halves and my entire family had never even heard of it, tbh i probably hadn't heard of it until recent years but that's just from talking to british people on message boards!

Every dish was unique and not just beautiful, but delicious. 

Plus, sitting in the tiny little kitchen space, with the magic happening just a dozen or so feet away was pretty awesome. Also, the group of people (only 9 of us) that were there were all very nice and cool and into the experience;

 

Here is a picture of our hosts, taken from my dinner seat. You can see just a sliver of my wife on the left-hand side of the picture. That tells you where we were sitting.

A wonderful night and one of the best dining experiences that I have ever had. And I've had a few.

Flat iron looks good but man, that's the thing about fancy places, it probably cost like >$20 and you'd have to stop for a sandwich on the way home

Not with 7 courses and a bottle of wine (BYO).

Ah okay, I didn't realize it was that kind of thing. Ate at a mediterranean hookah place that did it that way and it was awesome. At 10:00 they turned down the lights and brought out a DJ and lights and a belly dancer, we drank way too much booze and puffed on the hookah and probably tipped the dancer too much :lol:
