At the back of the hill

Warning: If you stay here long enough you will gain weight! Grazing here strongly suggests that you are either omnivorous, or a glutton. And you might like cheese-doodles.
BTW: I'm presently searching for another person who likes cheese-doodles.
Please form a caseophilic line to the right. Thank you.

As many of my readers know, I used to work part-time in an Indian restaurant. Many Hindu Indians do not eat beef. Some do not eat meat at all. This a religion-based abstainment. Likewise, Jews do not eat pork or shellfish, and truly obeservant Jews will not eat food prepared in a non-kosher environment (like my kitchen, for instance), because kashrus extends to utensils and containers. Muslims are a little more flexible, in that avoiding pork is their main buggaboo, and the other details are of decidedly lesser importance.

I more than tolerate religious exemptions and associated dietary eccentricity, even thought I hold to no such limitations myself.
Even Buddhists and Jains. Wild, but okay.

Self-anointed vegans and glutenphobes, however, can go fly a kite.

I am only marginally better with the anti-gmo and organic crowd.
They too are a bunch of pretentious and special dickwads.

Fortunately the places where I eat do not cater to those people.

"What's that?"

"Pork egg-noodle."

"And that?"

"Bacon and cheese gluten."


"It's shrimp, bloody beef, mushrooms, and blue cheese, lovingly garnished with peanuts, onions, chili peppers, and strips of fried egg.
Bacon is optional, honey-mustard glaze is not."

Veal, pâté de foie gras, and smoked horsemeat.

What I wanted tonight was either pizza or roast duck. But what I had was bacon, finger sausages, egg, and toasted sourdough bread. I did not feel like complicated cooking. The kitchen smells rich and very porkesque at present, and I think I will follow dinner with some delicious frozen dairy dessert. Oh yum.

The only thing missing was hotsauce.
Sometimes the sheer rich goodness of the ingredients and that old-timey flavour need to stand on their own to be appreciated.

I already had hotsauce earlier today.
On a dolphin-salad sandwich.
Oh sorry, it was tuna.
Yes. Tuna ...

    I was at a restaurant where some anti-natural f*ckhead put not only GMOs, but also vaccines, into chocolate chip cookies. This should be illegal, and I'm, voting for anti-vax candidates come November. !!!

    The outrage, the offense, the agony!

    It probably interfered with the exquise taste of carob and tofu.
