Deep fried Twinkie.
I once made a homemade tofurkey.You blended tofu with agar.... it was a process. There was corn oil too in it for flavor.
But non- primal- I'll fess up- lean cuisines. The mac and cheese. I'd try and burn it in the microwave because the burning helped it taste better.
Also deep fried ice cream- it came wrapped in a 1/2" layer of pound cake. It was bizarre. But oddly delicious with cool whip.
Oh yeah- cool whip- I used to love cool whip. I worked with weight watchers members who ate it by the tub because it was low in points.
Deep fried Twinkie.
Magnolia, one of our weekly magazines produces recipe books, has for years. About 30 years ago, they came out with the Chinese recipe book. One was deep fried ice cream balls with fudge sauce. (Yes, I thought it sounded so authentic too). It's coated in breadcrumbs and yes, was absolutely delicious. Fortunately it took a couple of days to prepare so didn't do it very often
This is not normal American food. You can only get it at the State Fair once a year. At least I hope...
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
I've got it- Jailhouse gumbo. Involved mixing ramen, fire cheetoes, whatever meat we'd save from dinner, ketchup(not the primal kind), mustard(also not the primal kind), a hot pickle, and damn near anything else you could throw in there. Tasted like fire.
You mean, like MREs? Yeah, I've had those too....
SHIT! I got all y'all beat! When I was cleaning out a basement in Groton, CT, we found a bunch of old "carb supplements". Basically, a few giant metal tins filled with 40 yr old solid corn syrup spherical objects covered in sugar and flavoring. They were still good.
Marshmallow Fluff, from Lynn, Ma. Has no marshmallow in it at all but is whipped corn syrup ( Corn Syrup, Sugar Syrup, Dried Egg Whites and Vanillin). Has the consistency of melting marshmallows. I even hated it as a kid, it's as gross as it sounds. Not sure that it gets distributed beyond New England.
Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.
Deep-fried, bacon-wrapped Chocodile (chocolate-covered Twinkie). I think I've also gotten at least 50 boxes of Twinkies and Lemon Zingers under my belt. I used to eat 2 in a sitting. How I never developed diabetes and always had awesome cholesterol I'll never know. Maybe it's genetic, considering my grandpa has been a smoker since he was 16 and is still in perfect health. Maybe I'm some kind of anomaly, like a mutant.
Guys, I think I might be Wolverine.
