With the noodles soft it starts to become more like Hiyashi Chuka . . . . which is what I just finished having for dinner. I love it because the recipe is more of a suggestion than instructions. You can change up the noodles, vegetables, protein, toppings, and dressing. Read more

I’ve had Winc forever and discovered some real favorites in there. Not just brands, but varietals I’d never heard of/tried. Just replaced my whole box with Guerweinitzer? I can never spell it. But they only have it once in a while and I stock up.

I got a subscription for my wife’s birthday last year, and I assure you adults can enjoy it too! It really is just about $5 worth of bodega snacks from whatever the country of the month’s version of a bodega might be, but it was fun to try new things. Almost every month had some variation on the Cheetos style “cheese” Read more

What’s the Cap’n’s favorite letter? R, matey!

Currently don’t use any food/drink subscription boxes but I’d prefer those over any other subscription boxes. You can eat and drink what you order, but with things like Loot Crate, it gives you so much stuff that will end up just lying around.

Need? Meh. Want? I like my condiments cold. The temperature contrast is a key part of the experience for me.

This is the most attention my people’s meatbread sandwich (is it a sandwich THO???) has ever gotten. Worth noting that Runza the restaurant pretty much owns the name.. they forced the public schools to call them Nebraska Buns decades ago. Last year they introduced vegetarian Runzas and hooo, I had some moments.

My daughter, age 11, is completely and utterly devoted to our once a month globetrotting box from Universal Yums. Sometimes you find something you don’t want to find (lamb and mint chips come to mind), but usually there are many moments of delight (like pineapple candies shaped like hearts). She was devastated Read more

My kid loves the Universal Yums subscription that a lovely relative gets her every year. I’m pretty sure every item is some sort of cheapo overstock from convenience stores in, say, Sweden, but it is the highlight of her month. In pre-Covid times she would take the box to school and her lunch table would fill out the Read more

Universal Yums! New country each month and they send a lot.

I’ve been a fan of both Try the World (food) and Runner Crate (things for runners, including gels and snacks and drinks powders, but also non-food, sometimes clothing) — neither had a 100% hit rate on the items every month, but definitely felt worth the price. I’m pretty sure I discovered one of my favorite Read more

I personally go on a low blood sugar induced tri state crime spree without breakfast, but I eat at home. I can’t conceive of going through my entire morning routine and then driving someplace to get breakfast unless it’s the full pancakes/bacon/oatmeal/juice/fruit/coffeecake blowout that I would never bother with at Read more

Wendy’s Breakfast Baconator was a nice surprise find during the COVIDs. The Swiss Cheese sauce is amazing.

I was in a production of “Daddy’s Dyin’ ... Who’s Got The Will?” a comedy set in Texas about a squabbling family whose patriarch is on his deathbed. The script called for a bowl of those jellied “orange slice” candies on the coffee table and for my character, an abusive husband named Orville, to pop one at any Read more
