    Default The Markus

    One of my favorites things about visiting the many Art Museums here in BA is the excellent coffee shops that you must visit after a difficult day of viewing the many challenging pieces of art. Todays treat after the visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art

    I suppose it'd be considered gauche to pick the plate up, after scrapping off all possible with a fork (or spoon), and lick the plate?__
    I never met a Semite I didn't like.

    Yes, I'd embarrass everyone. Probably belch after the meal, too.

    Quit it, I’m having flashbacks to the Catfish Fries of my youth and there’s no relief here in BA.

    Well heck JW, this brought to mind the time that I went to Dallas as a kid to a convention of the Beta Club.

    My father was always tight with his monies and very strict with what we were or were not allowed to participate. I rode in the pickup all of the day fearing his reaction when I asked for $45.00 to attend 3 days in Dallas this convention.

    We rounded the corner and the house was within sight when I blurted out my question. In reality, I blew wind from my mouth in fear with not a word coming forth.

    Dad said, 'what the hell wrong with you boy?'

    I then commenced to ask and explain the reasons why he should give me $45.00, as he beat his fist on the dashboard of the truck, telling me how each dollar was made. He said, 'you sit here young pistol,' to which I would have done nothing else, as he departed to go into the house and return sometime later with a check in hand for $25.00, the cost of my delivery. It only cost $25.00 for my delivery and I wished $45.00 for a 3 day excursion into the detested Dallas?

    Well country boys do go to town and for this one, man it was frightening to see so many people among the tall buildings. Ignorance was evident as I strode forth with mouth agape in wonder.

    I went to a restaurant with a group. I had nevah seen a restaurant before in my life, only cafe's and this place had red carpet on the floors in lieu of the back and white tiles, and table set.

    I sat and looked at a menu and could not recognize much that were of my knowledge except for the fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and English peas, to which I ordered.

    Now the problem arose when the food was delivered to the table. I sat and looked at that fried chicken knowing quiet well that the sophisticated people of the world most probably did not eat the fried chicken with their hands as we did on the ranch, so I picked up my knife and fork and began to cut the meat from the bone. I was doing okay until I came to this part where my knife refused to cut on through and I added a bit of pressure. The knife slipped and sent that damned plate of food swirling across that restaurant like a Frisbee, strewing food among all of the patrons. It upset me so, that I took to my room to puke.

    Upon returning home, I knew that I had to report this unfortunate event before they would hear of it and was surprised with the response I received from my Dad; "Boy, you bought and paid for that plate of food and can eat it any damned way you wish."

    So, the moral to this story is, chicken should not be eaten with a knife and fork.

    Neither do the Chinese. Perhaps they think of a Southern-fried drumstick as a chopstick wrapped in breaded meat.__

    When KFC first opened in 1987 in Beijing, on the edge of Tiananmen Square, just across the street from Mao Zedong’s tomb, it seated 500. They are the biggest fast-food franchise in China.

    I don't believe I've ever seen anyone eat ribs, BBQ or otherwise, with a knife & fork, unless there's an unmanagably large chunk of fatback attached to the rack. The real question is where's your pinkie? Rigidly stuck up & out? Or dug into the cooked flesh like a true carnivore? Who don't lick their fingers? But do you clean your elbows with a napkin, or lick your tablemate's (few can lick their own) in true familial bonding.__

    Dan, did the museum cafe offer rose-water in finger bowls for patrons' dainty digits?

    I did not see any but I can report that the vast majority were eating Quiche Now don’t get me wrong I like a good quiche as much as anyone, just seemed a little out of place here in BEEF country

    Today I had a good old fashioned bowl of chili and Sunday a bunch of us are having a Chili Cook-Off. I don’t know which I like better chili or meatloaf

    The Cook Off should be, well, interesting. I am only taking photos and eating of course, but the organizers might have their hands full. As of last count, over 300 people have indicated they plan on attending. By the way the menu is chili, cornbread and beer.

    Chile is nice in the cool of the season and as the season is winter there, what could be better? Notice was made of the beans but they do compliment chile, as does the cornbread. Got milk? It's luvery with cornbread and or chile.

    Uuuu do I spy real Cheddar in that mix?

    I have to special order it here to git just a sliver or two.

    Dan do they make Swiss there? I like it in an omlette, and hash browns with bacon, and buttered toast with jelly...

    JPJW, your problem reminds me of China. It's almost impossible to find real cheese outside the major big cities. Cheese is one Western food that hasn't become popular in China!

    Well then I wouldn't like it there, I am a beaner and a cheese head not to mention Grits.. with a bit of pork or beef thrown in the mix.

    I like veggies to accompany it and I am a happy camper.

    JW, lay off the rum a bit and speak the truth, if your head wasn't stuck so far up your a$$, you would admit Italian food ain't so bad either....

    Mom and Pop Kosher deli food ain't bad either, but as a Christian, I ain't worried about keepin Kosher, just want to eat well....
