First post in here for quite some time, and the first Chilli Con Carne for a very long time...
Breakfast today. I had an extra egg in my Egg McMuffin, as well as a slice of tomato.
McDonald's hash browns are always so good.
I had a weird feeling you had McDonald's.
I think i'd rather lick a public toilet...
To each their own.
I don't think we have hashed browns in McDonalds in Serbia. As for Egg McMuffin, I'm not sure if I had it once or not, I'm almost never at McDonalds at breakfast time.
I ordered in, can't be bothered to go all the way there for a meal.
tomato... chicken... no idea what that stuff is... feta?... lettuce, on pumpkin seed bun?
Looks good to me all the same.
The cheese is not feta. It's called manouri. Very different taste from feta.
More soft, less salty and overall very different taste.
can't tell if there is any other condiments though... seems rather dry
The man likes his cheese....
It wasn't dry. The lettuce and the cheese help with that too.
I haven't heard of that cheese before. Sounds a little bit like ricotta (made from whey, slightly grainy texture...). Is it actually similar?
I don't think I ever had it.
those are not wet condiments. Definitely a meal that requires a glass of water on standby just to swallow then.
Well it isn't a soup. It's a sandwich. As with all meals it's better to have a glass of water near you, than not.
I don't find myself needing water to swallow it down, but on the other hand I am not in the desert either.
Judas, you seem awfully grumpy in this thread lately.
As far as I can see, that sandwich has a fairly soft, almost creamy cheese and between it and the vege, the whole thing should go down nicely (as I'm sure it did for Trusteft).
Ricotta has a texture somewhat similar to cottage cheese, it is not very salty, on the contrary, it can be slightly sweet and other than that, the taste depends on the type of milk used (it can come from different animals to create different kinds of ricotta). If you had an authentic cannolo, it was filled with ricotta. Actually, I just looked at the Wikipedia page for ricotta and found the following: "In Greece, very similar to ricotta are anthotyros (ανθότυρο) and manouri (μανούρι), made from sheep or goat milk. Similarly in Cyprus, anari (αναρή) is made from the same types of milk."
BTW, no pics, but, for breakfast, it was "whatever I found in the fridge" (bread, cheese, leftover bolognaise sauce, yoghurt with strawberries...) and for lunch it was lentils cooked with dried ribs (with pickles as a side). After that I ate some cookies and apparently I'm skipping dinner. Not a meal, but I did make myself a nice Aperol Spritz which I'm sipping right now.
