Are You Snacking on Anything Right Now?

mamachef May 14, 2012 08:01 PM

I've been stuffing my face today, having topped off my delicious Asian lettuce wrap meal with a butter-toasted Skippy peanut butter and Smucker's black raspberry jam, about an hour later. I may be finished for the day and then again I may not, in which case there are FULL FAT garlic Triscuits in the cupboard and some sharp Cheddar in the fridge, and really good crispy tart apples in the cooler drawer. Yeehaw!!
(It would appear I'm not done.)

        white rice,kale, chickpeas, red onion and a "dot" of T.J.'s Gen Tso's sauce. Just a snack before dinner.

            Oh, boyoboy. I have to let it rest for about 20 minutes, but this is such good stuff that I don't even mind. Has anyone here made the classic Hershey's Cocoa Hot Fudge Pudding cake? This is amazing, and it literally whips up in five minutes. Google the recipe, but sub. a T. of espresso powder in the cake base. It's a completely odd recipe that makes you think, "this couldn't possibly work," but it totally does and you end up with a genoise-like cake atop a bubbling, rich hot fudge base. It's possible I also have some of that dreadful whipped cream in a can, but OTOH #2 son stopped by and he very likely sucked the nitrous out. Hit or miss, the cake is delicious, and that is what I will be snacking on very very soon. :)

              Random jar of roasted red peppers I just bought in a moment of "I need some sort of jarred veggie" dipped in TJ's Mediterranean hummus, and a handful of jalapenos.

                Mmmmmmm, does that ever sound good right about now. On a similar note, next time you need jarred veg. (and believe me, I understand..), try Rick's Picks - either Wasabeans or the Smokra. A jar won't last through an evening of TV. :)

                  Why of why, mamachef? My favorite local Whole Foods doesn't have much but certainly has that brand, I've stared several times but never bit, looks like I will now :)

                    I think we need to startna second of rhis thread :)

                    I had a late lunchntoday - about 3pm- and gorged on a huge veggie omelet, mushroom barley soup and mashed potatoes. So I skipped dinner and went shopping.

                    Came back to my hotel late, thought about ordering from a nearby diner, saw my sister sitting at the table eating pband j. Forget the order! Got myself some crunchy Skippy and black cherry preserves on white. And because I was feeling chilly, as well as starved, I made a couple of packets of instant oatmeal with hot water I boiled in the hot water urn in my room. With a can of lemon lime seltzer. Wanted tea but don't want caffeine.

                    And I have a hox of Drakes Ring Dings hegging o be plundered. Pretty happy right now.

                  Fizzy lemonade and leftovers. Soggy BLT salad which would have been perfect at one day old, which was yesterday, and a ridiculously small portion of sesame long beans, which is just making me want more.

                        The other one I have is spicy red pepper. Have you tried Tribe. I wanted more flavor for the Med style but it had great body and none of that off bitter taste some have. Let me know about TJ's please. Love that place

                          I've only had the Tribe regular which wasn't too outstanding IMO. I haven't tried any others, but that spicy red pepper sounds tasty. I will do, I hear this Mediterranean hummus is pretty great, so we'll see. You can only buy it in this gigantic tub so I predict some issues perhaps with digging into the fridge at night.

                            I got freakin' religion the first time I ate TJ's Mediterranean Hummus. The pine nuts were the kicker, which means that now I add even more and use the biggest pita chips I can find, as my conveyance.

                              Uh oh I better get ready to be saved tomorrow around lunch time :) Thank for the additional recommendation! I was going to use it for hummus-crusted chicken but I think I should just reserve it as a dip for the chicken and taste it in its room temperature state rather than warm.

                                I always try mine first at room temp. The next time it may not make it completely to room temp if its that good. Its on my list(TJ's).

I'm not even a fanatic of peanut butter but somehow every now and then it hits the spot and I need a big dose. I liken it to a meditative, slow, savor event - grab two big spoons and eat verrrryyy slowly or else I'll need an ice cream scoop.

The "what's your favorite potato dish" thread has me craving potatoes (and dreaming about them, as well). However, I'll have to get my potato fix later. I just had a rather large snack of dried cherries mixed with a handful of dark chocolate chips and honey-roasted pecans.

So I ditched the crackers and went straight for a spoon (1/2 Jif creamy PB and 1/2 Smucker's Simply Fruit, black cherry flavor). Thank goodness those fruit jams are sold in *relatively* small jars!

Honestly, having eaten them I can say that the texture is very chewy but also incredibly light for the amount of butter/grease involved. The cream filling is extremely subtle both in taste and texture and has a very slight lemon tang and very lightly applied. My favorite part was actually the frosting on top. It is thick and luxurious and not at all like a buttercream, more of like a fondant crossed with a classic glaze. The layers inside maintain their integrity very well and as you may or may not know all cronuts have this light sugary coating only on the edges. The sugar also had a slight citrus taste. Awesome. So awesome.

You need to go to the pickle section of your supermarket and look for Cross & Blackwell picalilli. It is pickled veggies in a mustard spread. I serve it with cold ham and spread on sandwiches. If you like mustard and vinegar you would probably love the stuff. It is addictive

I do love all things tart and bitter. Somehow I missed that lesson from nature to avoid those tastes because it's usually a danger sign. Thanks for the recommendation.

But, I still have to tell you all about it. I get it at the Great Wall supermarket, and it's simply labelled "Chilli Magic." What is actually inside? Peanuts, sesame seeds, and big chunks of dried red chiles that aren't especially hot, but have flavor and texture. Truly magic.

Well, I got some of the Funky Chunky Carmel Corn today (which has the exact same elements as poppycock with popcorn, caramel coating, almonds, and cashews) and I did a taste test. Guess what. Poppycock won by a lot. It honestly wasn't even close. Poppycock has this buttery, rich finish that the Funky Chunky does not have and poppycock has a much thicker coating on the corn. Save yourself $ and time and just buy Poppycock. (Side Note: While their caramel corn is mediocre, Funky Chunky's chocolate drizzled pretzels are truly amazing)

Roasted salted cashews. Yum. Don't even tell me about Cashew Lovers. Lalalala.....didn't hear you.

I can't remember the last time I've had smoked salmon but today for the holiday I decided to make a proper breakfast and so the extra demanded to be inhaled on the couch.

To console myself, I got a McNugget mini meal with a coke. Noms!

Not good at all. I thought it needed a little cinnamon or something. It was bland. Oh well. I will keep pining away for my old friend the McDonald's fried pie of days gone by.

What a sweet gesture. And tasty. I plan on going to that deep fried paradise that they call Popeye's and get one of those fried peach pies that have been calling me like a siren song.

We live close to where I work and he was in the area so they were still cold and crisp! As you know I'm not a carbalicious girl, but a few Girl Scout cookies are just enough to saturate my sugar threshold without pushing the limits :) Oooh la la, I don't think we have those here, if only they had fried apple pies I'm sure they would beat the old McDonald's version which were amazing. Hopefully soon I will test out your biscuit in red beans and gravy, it's been on my mind ever since you mentioned it.

                                                                                                                                                            1) A banana sliced up into very thin segments rolled and coated completely with powdered peanut butter. (Can buy at Whole Foods)

                                                                                                                                                            2) Put almonds and pretzels on a baking pan. Melt chocolate (I like white and milk for this) and drizzle the chocolate over the almonds and pretzels. Perfection and better and cheaper than other chocolate covered items.

                                                                                                                                                            1. The Professor May 19, 2013 12:20 AM

The product degrades the second it goes out of date. You should give that gouda to me and spare your tummy all that distress. ;-)

Now I can't stop thinking of popeyes. I admire your restraint to emerge with only 2 items, not sure I've ever managed that :) Also in all my Popeyes-eating years I never thought to dip the biscuit in the red beans...genius!

When I worked there in '90 they buttered the buscuit once before baking, right after it left the oven and once right when you ordered it. I don't think they still butter them that much but boy are they good.
                                                                                                                                                                          PS the mashed potatoes are good scooped up with the biscuits too.

My last few bunches are less buttery than I remember and I used to find them too buttery but now they are always dry and missing a hint of something. Nevertheless, I eat them anyway of course.

Fresh tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, basil leaves and olive oil. So simple, so good.

Love it, and I also give it a sprinkle of good vinegar because I just love to sour things up. :) I've been chowing a LOT on Greek salad lately: Chunked tomatoes and cukes, thinly-sliced red onion (small quantity), great black olives, and feta. I dress that one with lemon and a bit of oil and let it sit. If I'm really puttin' on the dog, I'll toast some pita chips and throw them in, or little shards of staled-up, toasted crusty bread. I could eat that every day, all Summer long, and you know what? Maybe I just will. :)

Orange juice. Coffee. Some people would consider this breakfast. I, however, do not.

I adore kraut and ALWAYS have a jar in my fridge. Kimchi too; and marinated olives and pickles. I will drink the brine of any of them straight, and a shot of them in a bloody mary is crazy-good. I've also been known to brine chicken breast in the leftover brine for an hour or so, flour it lightly, and saute.

Kraut and all vinegary, salty things are da bomb. Have you ever tried Wasabeans, or Smokra?

I rarely eat cookies, but have to thank SO for insisting that we buy a few extra boxes to keep in the freezer.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              First off, I had four quart baggies of frozen bone broth with maybe 1.5 cups in each, so maybe 6 cups of broth total. Boxed stock would be fine, too.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I sauteed two chopped yellow onions in some butter till past translucent but before fully caramelized. I added the defrosted stock and let that come to a simmer. Added salt, pepper, and some Tapatio. Two large crowns of broccoli, roughly chopped, went in next. Let that simmer till broccoli was quite tender. Then about a 1/4 cup of heavy cream and all blended up with a stick blender. I waited till it was blended to add about a cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese and just stirred it in till it melted. And done!

I've only found them in the bulk section, where all the nuts, dried fruit and candies are. And yes, $$$$, down here in my area they're $12.99/lb!! But I'll pay cause they are the bomb!

I really wanted to have a Pepsi with it. Have maybe 1 a month. Don't keep them in the house, soooo I had chocolate milk.

Oh wait, who is that walked into the theater just to buy popcorn today...oh right, that's me. It's been at least a decade since I had movie theater popcorn and had a craving so went for it. It's not what I remember but still pretty good.

Had the sandwich things spread some pimento cheese on it then stuck it in the toaster oven to get toasted. Now that is yum as long as you don't burn the roof of your mouth eating it.

I am now obsessed with this strawberry rooibos tea, sweetened with honey and adding a drop of cream. Strawberries and cream in liquid form... so yum.

I will try the cream black tea later this weekend. Then I might go back to the shop and buy more samples :)

I personally tasted hints of maple syrup, something fried, and occasionally the flavor of cardboard and Eggo waffles, but that's about it.

So, my "snacking" today is all about the oh-my-G*d-sized quantities of food that I have to prepare and deliver for The Church of The Holy Superbowl clients I'm cooking for. Yep wings, (damn these are good; Hot fried chicken style, and an Asian marnade.) Yes dip; caramelized onion, layered Mexican and a sundried tomato/goat cheese.

They practically disappear on your tounge. I will miss them until then. Ii also ended up getting a crispy taco instead of a street style. I bet the brocc and aioli are good but i won't tell if you just get a spoon. It has accidently happened here with the pimento cheese

I indulged tonight in the micro chocky cake tonight and made a huge mistake. I gave the bf a bite and had to share my cup with him. I would have just made another but i was out of cocoa powder. Damn you for luring another victim into the microwave cake crack. Lol to you Marci.

I love those little suckers. I am glad that you suggested them

Red Yorkshire Wensleydale, white and colored cheddar,Double Glouster and Red Leicester. Also a sliced pink lady apple and some hard salami. Washed down with a glass of cheerwine on ice.

Not to pretty to eat though. And I got it marked down because it had only five days left til it expires. Trust me, it wont make it in this house. Heck, it may not make it through the night.

So far, it has involved roasted garlic hummus, some multigrain lavash crackers, and a few bites of leftover rigatoni. Not done, though! (much earlier tonight I had a frozen Weight Watchers raspberry dark chocolate bar - those things are really good. I'd eat them even if I wasn't on a diet)

Is that Southron enough? That pie was soooo good, ms. suzigirl. I used a variation of the James Beard recipe, which calls for biscuit dough, but for me, that's too much bready crust, vs. the amount of filling. So, I use all the ingredients (don't shudder, but the main ingredients are tomatoes, sharp cheddar, herbs and milk-thinned mayonnaise....wait, why would you shudder at that? i forgot for a moment I was talkin' ta YOU, suzi..) but I use a regular double piecrust instead. I was lucky enough to find several varieties of heirloom tomato - but I will admit that one layer was imported canned tomatoes that I drained very well and sliced thinly. I gotta tell ya, it WAS just yum.

Thank you for all the good wishes!! And I am here to tell you, this flu is EVIL. Now that I'm back on real food (although those 'nanners were lifesaving!), this late evening I am having a butter-drenched seedy bagel, toasted of course 'cause that's how I roll...along with a hot chocolate. Yum. This has been one fine day!!

The nice lady at the market makes them fresh when she sees me approach. I could put that eel sauce on a plate of paper towels and eat it! Also, I'm trying really hard not to open the new, giant container of Planter's Deluxe Mixed Nuts and pick out all of the Brazil nuts. I'm not sure that my willpower will last much longer though.

I can't be trusted. I just killed half a bag of the salt and pepper flavor a few days ago. I have some Everybody's Nuts pistachios salt and pepper flavor in the pantry mocking me. I feel weak all the sudden. Help me stop.

But it's breakfast, actually, rather than a snack. But it's one of the three foods I eat with ketchup, so it's also a snack.

I was initially appalled at unconventional cheeses that are brought forward at Holiday time, but now I have developed an affection for these seasonal oddities. This cheese in particular was quite flavoursome. Would buy again. Now searching the fridge for a honeycrisp apple to go with some aged Vermont cheddar that I've been saving.

I've only had a wasa cracker once... a former coworker was always eating them spread with peanut butter or cottage cheese. Dry and cardboardy, but I didn't hate it. The topping combo you mentioned is intriguing me... I'm tempted to try it out with another type of cracker, maybe Ak-Mak. I may do so later this week and report back.

I should've mentioned I used the super thin type of kavli -- it absorbs the thin layer of mayo and the nut.yeast really bakes in there, hence the Dorito comparison. Not sure how it'd go with a thicker cracker (I, too, have only had Wasa once... I don't think Kavli is *quite* as cardboardy).

Not bad - I've been saying it every 2 or so, and it doesn't help a bit that a friend sent a box of chocolate/thin mint shortbread cookies. As in a 3-lb. holiday box. I can't believe how good these are; nothing waxy, not cloyingly sweet, Really Good Dark Chocolate.

The almonds and cashews have no flavor or seasoning whatsoever and the cashews are a weird texture. The peanuts, and there are WAY too many of them, IMO, are well-coated in the sweet & salty mix, and there are (too few)candied walnuts that are the best thing the jar.

But reading all these posts...mmmm! Watching the weight because i can't gomregularly to the gym right now, but snacking is my favorite pastime!

Soon, though, my homemade peanut butterpp cookies topped with butterscotch chips that were my sister's suggestion, and I don't mind saying they are divine. Those will go down nicely with q cols glass of almond milk.

Which led to the dried apricots, which turned out to need some of leftover Guittard dark chocolate ganache. I hit the sweet spot though when I paired the ganache with the jam.

Of course. If I really want to play out my movie theatre fantasy, I've got a few Kosher hot dogs to hand, and..........it could happen. It could.

I like my MW popcorn w/parm and homemade dry ranch dressing mix that I make. And to quote a chow friend...Yehaw.( you know who you are Marci. ;-p). I had fried okra and ranch dip today. C'mon... it was fried. Kick ass
