Sounds fabulous. My sammich was just turkey. On homemade bread, at least.

mmm, brie.

Just finished a hot dog from a new place in town. Very meh--too much bread, not enough dog. Fries were good, but messing up fries takes real skill.

I still have dried cherries, wonder how long it's going to take to bake my way through 2 pounds of it?
Made dark chocolate chunk and dried cherry oatmeal cookies from scratch. Yes, dark chocolate chunks instead of chips, mixed with cherries in a cookie, yum! Ate several

That sounds fabulous!

For me, French toast, made with nice thick slices of my homemade sourdough bread.

That sounds like an amazing sandwich. I should see about making some 7-grain bread...

Chicken Caesar
All-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, Asiago, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions & our Caesar dressing, on our Three Cheese bread.

It was just okay. The break kept falling apart.

Jalepeno bagel with cream cheese. Bagel was from a place I'd not tried before...won't go back. Tastes ok, but totally un-bagel in texture. More like bread.

Grilled burgers. Tried grilling naked corn on the cob. It wasn't on long enough. Needs some tweaking.

I'm eating chocolate cake because I'm stuck with it.

I always have strawberry shortcake on my birthday and just couldn't wait till then so I stopped and purchased one today. A little while ago I took it out of the fridge and saw this beautiful round mass of white fluffy heaven with eight big strawberries on top. Couldn't wait to get a piece of it.

Took a knife, sliced it and inside was a two layer chocolate cake with fudge in between layers. All I can say is W T H, so disappointed. I've never heard of a strawberry shortcake like this in my life. Called the store and they said it wasn't labeled wrong and that some of their strawberry shortcakes are chocolate.

PFFT! Never heard of such a thing, it's just wrong, really wrong.

I haven't a clue. The whole thing is weird to me. I ate one piece last night and gave the rest to a neighbor. Just pissed me off looking at it. lol

That's what my question was. So I was a smart ass. Went to google and typed in chocolate strawberry shortcake. I fully expected that my search would come up with no choc. strawberry shortcakes. Then I was going to print that page out and take it over to the bakery and show them that there is no such thing.

I hit search and there are pages and pages of recipes for chocolate strawberry shortcakes. I see it and still don't believe it. I believe in Santa and the Easter Bunny more.

Last half of a chicken-cheese-steak sammy.

No steak, not sure why they're called that, but still very yummy.

Same place, I ordered a gyro and pronouncded it 'he-row'. The gal looked blankly at me, so I pointed to it on the menu and she said, with exaggerated sounds, 'oh, a JIE-row.'

Mmmhmm.

Funny you should say this. We just had a discussion about this last week when we were downtown and my son corrected me. According to google translate audio, he was wrong.

GYRO

HI. Just finished a deli sliced turkey with swiss (I warm it a wee bit in the micro-good enough with cheese melted not to have to add any mustard, mayo, or the like) on 5 grain bread and some iced green tea.

Would love to try the Cstrawberry shortcake - never heard of it either.

You are the most correct. My best friend from childhood is greek-greek. Based on many overheard rants from annoyed Greeks, it is absolutely not not not jie-ro and very much closer to yearoh/yee-rhos.
But!! Pronouncing it "correctly" (in the Greek way) is largely unnecessary in America. I see it as akin to insisting on Paris being pronounced Pah-rhee or BMW actually being Bee Em Doobleh-Veh. My own pronunciation largely depends on my "audience."

And thus ends Goldenthorn's Unwelcome Lecturing Interruption of the day. But, hey, THE MORE YOU KNOW, amirite?

Thread-topic-adding, to be somewhat less jumping-in-ish: I am currently working my way through a most healthful and wise selection of leftover sushi, bagel dogs, lunchables, falafel with tzatziki, and chocolate chip cookies--all washed down with coffee. My stomach is a wonderland of calm and neutrality.

A hot dog wrapped in bagel dough! I will admit that it is truly disgusting and an abomination of a port[food]manteau, but it is oh!so!delicious!

Alas but that my stomach is too used to such mixtures! It is a most terrible pairing of shame and pride that swirls within me, rather than the deserved wrenching of indigestion. I have been promised by all that with age my doom shall find me. Until then, I lead it a merry chase through my digestive system! (I've also been guzzling water for the last hour to counteract any punishment.)
