    Re: General Food Talk

    I haven't poked into this thread in a while but I just wanted to add something to the Mashed potatoes with Mayo talk.

    Butter isn't something we have on hand regularly here, so years ago I started making mashed potatoes with Mayo.
    I don't know about creamy-er but they are certainly creamy. I don't care for the flavor of Mayo though, so I began only using that method when I was making Ranch-Mashed (Mashed potatoes with some ranch dressing mix mixed in)

    I have since replaced Mayo with fat free Cream Cheese! A little splash of skim milk and about half a box of FFCC, dash of sea salt, dash of fresh ground pepper and a few dashes of parsely. It's definately my favorite way to make mashed potatoes now. Super creamy, delicious and less fat/cal than butter OR Mayo and another way to sneak more protien into my growing boys

    Here's a question I have had for years....what does parsley add to a recipe, other than color? My taste buds don't really detect anything, in particular, but it could just be me.

    I'm not too sure of a describable flavor but I know that my dad uses it for his salsa and it is a big ingredient in Mexican cooking. Other than that I couldn't really describe it's taste.

    I was watching a thing on the food network on weird foods and they had Jones Soda on this particular episode because they made an entire collection of Thanksgiving flavored soda. They had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry (normal, I guess), and even stuffing if I remember right.

    At Target they sell it in 12 pack cans now.
    I remember seeing those in Target and I"m sorry, but I'm NOT drinking anything that tastes like gravy and mashed potatos. That just sounds GROSS. The turkey and stuffing ones do too.

    Well I paid $3 for this bacon candy bar, but it's his birthday, so I figured it was ok for a once a year treat.

    I got really sick a few years ago after drinking a banana fosters cappicino and since them, banana flavored anything is beyond my eating or drinking ability. I like bananas, but the flavored stuff is so banana-y that I can't do it.

    I used to love the Banana Bike (at least I think that's what they were called) candies from my childhood! Since I'm allergic to real bananas, but I like the banana taste, I'm a careful banana flavoring fan.

    I had forgotten about those. We would go to my grandmother's in the summer, she would let us walk to the store to get red hots for her cinnamon apples, and we would have to buy banana bikes for her... and sometimes we could get a bottle coke from the ice box... such fun.

    Do you remember those little candies that were shaped like fruits? I would always pick out all of the banana ones and eat them first. They were my favorite!

    Big read, so I won't post it all. But aside from the VERY SUBTLE flavor, I use Parsley wherever I can for the nutritional benifits.

    WHFoods: Parsley

    A little taste of the posted link ...Parsley is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K. It is a good source of iron and folate. Parsley's volatile oil components include myristicin, limonene, eugenol, and alpha-thujene. Its flavonoids include apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol, and luteolin.
