The one by my house sells bananas sometimes

Fancy.
I guess I could get 80 packs of sunflower seeds with the same amount of money and have it be a little healthier.

It's rare they do and they're almost black from age but hey it happens.

 

Go for peanuts, high in protein.

Well, they'd be the same quality as the ones in my house then because I can't convince anyone to eat them.

Peanuts are gross. They taste bad, they have mold from the storage, and they make my mouth feed weird. Sunflower seeds are high in E and selenium.

Where are you from? What is it known for?


I'm from New Hampshire. I can't really think of anything the state is known for in terms of food. Maine is next door and known for lobster so that's kinda close.

Google says it's apples...

 

...y'all must have some really amazing apples to get that kind of recognition.

Because I eat out so often I try to keep it all cheap. But once a year we'll go somewhere and spend a couple hundred. We went to Viji's and spend a lot. Best food I've ever had. That is owned by the fellow who was on Dragon's Den and he has his own cooking show. So as you would expect, it is amazing.

Hmm I never really thought of apples being a big thing here. I guess we've got good apples?

SAME. Doesn't even matter what kind. If it's a nut, I'll fucking eat it. (I blame my girlfriend for that. She loves them so much I wanted to try them more and here I am. A nut addict.)

But also seeds. Pumpkin seeds are all my yes.

Things I need to eat before death.

 

  • Wagyu beef, at least Kobe beef
  • Tomahawk steak
  • 100 yr old shellfish
  • Eat from ten 3-michelin star restaurants
  • Chicago deep dish pizza
  • Something laced with millions of scoville units, preferable on my deathbed

It's the Brit version of Shark Tank. Our homework in business studies used to just be go home and watch Dragon's Den tonight.

 

How far would I go for a nut? Like how far would I travel, or what's the furthest thing i'd do? Because I wouldn't suck dick for some cashews if that's where we're headed with this :p

Dry roasted are my all time favourites, then cashews, then probably regular peanuts. I keep trying to get into almonds because they're super good nutrition wise, high in protein etc. But the taste gets a bit eh after a while so I can't just continuously snack on them. Almond milk however is sex in a carton.

I'm lactose intollerant so almond milk is my milk of choice (Plus I just hate milk in general but gimmie the sweet nectar of almond tiddies)

 

Dry roasted are amazing. Give me cashews above all else though

How was that? We went to a Brazilian grill on my friends bday a couple years ago and he was trying to convince me to get the "meat" option, where they bring everything out for you to pick and whatever. But it just wasn't really in my budgettttt at that time, so I got the cheap option. Which was still like $35 or something, for the hot and cold bar.

He was like "I'll get an extra and let you try" but it didn't happen. lol

I prefer cashew milk really. It's so smooth.

You're about to talk me into finding one.

Chicken heart or Brazilian grill? lol I mean, either is good.

Fuck, I missed this and now I'm double posting. YOLO.

 

It was awesome! It was like $22 each for the meat option, which came with the salad/side bar. So basically, $22 for each person to enjoy everything, all-you-can eat. They brought out a bunch of different poultry, beef and fish, and even roasted pineapple and roasted veggies (which was hella fucking good). You could eat as much as you wanted. And if there was something specific you liked, you could ask them to bring that back specifically. I liked it a lot because it wasn't terribly for expensive for what we were getting and because we couldn't figure out what we wanted for lunch, so this was kind of like, everything. We also bought dessert and I had a diet soda, so that's why our bill was around 60-ish, not including our tip. 

It's definitely something I want to do again. It's not cheap really, but the experience was fun, the food was good and we got to go outside our comfort zone a bit and that's worth the money, imo. It's the kind of place I can take my sister-in-law too (she has Celiac and needs to eat gluten-free and everything was GF except certain stuff on the salad/side bar) and that really excites me.

I don't eat a lot in general; most of my meals are just 99 cent cup noodles from the local grocery store lol

 

When I do eat out though I almost never spend more than $25. I'm just really money-conscious and I tend to order small because I know I have a hard time finishing full meals on my own. When I'm out with a friend I just eat off of their plate/share LMAO

I was strictly raised by a saying we have here roughly translated to "Stop moaning and eat whatever's served to you" so I'll eat about anything except mushrooms (because they literally make me gag. I'm sorry mom, I tried). So I never really splurge on meals because anything's fine.

 

The one thing you can wake me up for though is pizza. It's food from the gods, I swear. While not an extraordinarily expensive trip I'll fly to Rome or Napoli any day to have a proper Italian artisan pizza. It's about the only thing I ate when we went there for our high school Latin-class and they were always amazing.

So that's your version of "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit?"
