This is the sale page. I don't see any tea listed right now. The selection varies all the time based on what in their stock is expiring.

Rainy - I swear I'll share.

Gawd almighty - they want $8.16 a box right now.

well, you know, there are things there you can't get elsewhere. Are you just trying to provoke me into making a list so you can then say I didn't follow my rules?
One thing I'm crazy for is komijne kaas--it's a mild cheese with cumin seeds in it. Now, growing up, and until I was in my early 30s, I misheard it as: koninje kaas--which means RABBIT cheese. I had no idea why it was called that ('you can milk anything with nipples') but I didn't ponder.

One day I was like: SHIT. THAT TASTES LIKE CUMIN. And then I asked around found out cumin is komijn (not konijn with an 'n'--i hope i'm spelling that correctly).

anyway, you can't get that here. I've had 2 year old KK and it's aged far too long. The young stuff is so delicious it literally almost brings me to tears (b/c it reminds me of eating at my dutch oma's table)

On one visit down, when we were still dating long distance, I questioned myself as to whether I was more excited to see J or to get some ice cream. I think he didn't believe it was him.

I also miss Broadway Pizza and those funny little biscuits at the Blue Plate cafe, but I will not mention them, because I know how Jes doesn't like a rule breaker.

Blue Bell is the national ice cream of Texas. Memphis was always a Yarnell's town when I was growing up. I am less than an hour down the road from the Blue Bell Creamery in Hempstead. It's next on my list of tours.

Ouch...just cruel...really.

I don't think I ever had Yarnell's while I was down there. There was one other brand but I can't think of the name right now..something about Angel's or something like that. We have Graeter's and Valentine's here, which are both specialty shops, but there is something about the Blue Bell brand that flips my switch.

Default My ONE [with a slight deviation]

I WOULD have said, had I not been able to find [expensive] ways to get them:
-Tastykakes
-McVittie biscuits [either milk chocolate or caramel digestives]
-Cadbury Double Decker bars
-Milky Way crispy rolls [I forget the proper name, but it's a UK thing I can very occasionally find]

But the ONE item I would get if I could - Tastypies. I guess they don't sell those by mail order. <sigh>

There... did I stay off Jes' list?

From my old home, Manhattan the one thing I really miss is the water. Regular NYC tap water. Even out of a fire plug it tasted good. Screw good better than any other tap water I drank. Makes the rest taste like paddy water, especially New Jersey and Florida.



That and the Ray's Pizza in the Village.

And Grey's Papaya, too.

There's this sandwich place in my hometown that has the most amazing grinders of all time. I've had similar things elsewhere, but there is no comparison. I find myself wondering often whether I could have my mom FedEx me one. Seriously...

Dutch food is very, very simple. They are a big meat and potatoes country. They don't do mashed, they do boiled. So generally a small piece of simple meat (not a porterhosue steak), boiled potatoes with brothy, not creamy, gravy, and a few vegetables. Leafy ones cooked down are popular--witlof, or endives. I think we have endives here, not sure how popular witlof would be. it's bitter.
The dtuch, or many of them that I know, smush it all together on their plates into hutspot--literally a mash of all the dif. parts, together, and then eat it like a dryish stew.
The cheese is soft like a gouda, not a brie. You definitely slice it. I want to marry that cheese.

You chose one. Had you not chosen one, you'd have been in big trouble.

Anyway, i meant to add, about dutch food, that i kept thinking about hutspot every time i read the 'i'm neurotic this way' posts in which people talked about having to have their food not touch, and needing to take 1 bite of each type of food, etc. Hutspot would just make y'all lose your shit!!

Okay, 'cause I was thinking if it was a hot sandwich it would be better if sent pre-cooked. It sounds good, though I bet at least half of the deliciousness factor of any of these treats is the whole ambience of the thing. I know for me, part of the deliciousness of the brown beef curry I had in Scotland was that we'd been driving all over the country all day, and it was a cool, rainy day. We were starving, found the first place open on a Sunday, and sat ourselves down in a very cool Scottish pub. My sweetie had "haggis with tatties and neeps" and I dug into this huge plate of curry. Damn, it was good. I'm just not sure it would taste as good in my very American kitchen, you know?

Still though, I'd love to find out.

This is the place. It's called the Cluanie Inn and we found it totally accidentally while driving around Loch Ness. It's also a hotel and our next visit will include a stay there.

Jes, thanks for the primer on Dutch cuisine. I feel so woefully uninformed for a Dutch girl. It definitely sounds like my kind of food.
