Tonight, our local Thai restaurant - shared some 'fresh rolls w/ shrimp' which we love, comes w/ an excellent sauce (our usual start there; kind of like the ones shown below, left); two main dishes w/ lots of veggies, one pork & the other a sizzling shrimp/scallop plate - couple of Thai beers for me (love that brand!) - we usually love one of their 'hotter' curry dishes w/ fish balls, but not tonight (next time!) -  ;D

Sarge, ketchup can be redeemed by mixing it with powdered curry. It's delicious with any kind of sausage. Kurrywurst is a staple all over Germany, and the easiest way around is ketchup + curry.

I have a choice between ostrich and kangaroo for my next gourmet meal with my best friend. We'll have a Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Any suggestions?

AndrĂ© - well, I've had a LOT of ostrich and can certainly recommend a try (but cannot provide any comparison comments) - despite ostrich being a BIG bird, the meat is red - suggest medium rare at the most (very lean meat, i.e. comparable to chicken breast in fat/cholesterol); I usually have a Pinot Noir, but the wine mentioned above would be fine - please let us know your choice!   :D  Dave

I've had both and I prefer ostrich - delicious!  :)

I used to love mine with a slice of white american cheese.

I also loved peanut butter and bacon sandwiches on whole wheat toast.

I know I am weird.

I bought a 40 oz bag of candy at Target this weekend. And the temptation is very, very strong to finish it.  ;D ;D

Does the waiter remove the waxed paper from the food when he serves them, or do you have to unwrap them??  ::)

Those spring rolls are wrapped in wrappers made of rice flour. There's no need to unwrap anything, just dig in like you would with a small burrito.

Thank you, Toledobass! You won't catch me digging into a small burrito - not a large one either! - Striving population of cockroaches in Mexican restaurants keeps me out of them! -  :o

Holds his head in shame... It is ketchup...specifically Heinz. A taste I acquired in childhood. Mrs Rock is appalled too. I'm probably the only person on earth who enjoys ketchup with his brats. Mrs. Rock usually has sweet Bavarian mustard but she had a gourment mustard infused with truffles on this occasion. In my defense I eat brats with mustard when I'm away from home.

Ketchup is yummy! (Although I tend only to use it on chips) I have yet to find a brand that tastes as nice as Heinz :)

Ketchup fans unite in solidarity. We need some kind of Ketchup Pride march...

Peanut butter, flour and sugar do not make cookies. They make FIRE.

Lis - Allan is correct - just a thin, translucent, and EDIBLE wrapping that holds all inside to enjoy!  Lite & a great start to a Thai meal -  :D

I'll probably set my choice at the last minute, but I saw a recipe that looks tempting: ostrich steaks, flambĂ© with dry gin and served with a crushed juniper berries cream sauce.
