Midnigh7Run: You're very welcome! And agreed, no hard boiled eggs in lasagna for me. Though... I do like pineapple on pizza. Jul 23, 2021 15:39:01 GMT
Djjinja: I dunno if I would want hard boiled eggs in my lasagna, but thats the canadian in me talking Jul 23, 2021 6:15:48 GMT
Djjinja: huh, I never knew that. Thanks for the information man. I am Canadian, so I know nothing of real Italian food, we are the ones who disgraced their pizza with pineapple Jul 23, 2021 6:15:07 GMT
Midnigh7Run: Sorry. Bit of a food nerd and my chef buddy indulges and enables me. It doesn't help. 8-| Jul 23, 2021 0:55:27 GMT
Midnigh7Run: Or even try the more traditional recipes and styles. So as they're generally treated by most folks? Yep. Same dishes different pastas. But the history behind them (not including you Baked Ziti) is pretty interesting. As are the flavors. Jul 23, 2021 0:50:36 GMT
Midnigh7Run: Traditional Lasagnas supposedly hail from Naples. And had some..odd...ingredients. Like hard boiled eggs. Nope.... But generally Lasagna is Lasagna. That said, for all of these dishes, you can change the ingredients up. Jul 23, 2021 0:48:44 GMT
Midnigh7Run: Baked Ziti is basically "Mom's Easy Lasagna" casserole. Cause if there's a dish, we'll find a way to butcher it into submission as a casserole lol. It's strictly an American "Italian" thing. Though it's kinda similar to some European dishes. Jul 23, 2021 0:44:50 GMT
Midnigh7Run: In traditional Mediterranean, Italian, or Sicilian cooking, the same dishes can vary widely with ingredients. Pasta Oli Olio is a rather light spaghetti dish that's almost devoid of what we consider the dish here in the us. But still delicious. Jul 23, 2021 0:42:28 GMT
Midnigh7Run: A ton of folks and even restaurants tend to treat Italian food like "Mexican" (TexMex folks... The US has TexMex) dishes. Same 5ish ingredients, rinse, repeat, add oregano. Jul 23, 2021 0:40:09 GMT
Midnigh7Run: @djjinja. Not Italian but, I was a firefighter so.. I cooked a lot of pastas. Of the dishes you mentioned, Stromboli is the outlier as it's basically a hot pocket lol. But overall, as far as "Murican" pasta dishes are concerned, yep. Jul 23, 2021 0:39:01 GMT
Djjinja: To any Italians out there: Is the only real difference between Stramboli, Baked Ziti, Spaghetti and Lasagna the noodles and cooking method? Jul 22, 2021 23:52:28 GMT
Djjinja: ... The part of owning a Hamster named Slamster is true, just got to mention. The other part was an unrealistic joke hahah, as if it could ever happen. We actually invited him for lasagna, I never make Stramboli Jul 22, 2021 23:50:40 GMT
Djjinja: Slamster had his last slam battle, causing him to willfully leave with Richard Gere Jul 22, 2021 23:49:54 GMT
Djjinja: If you guys think hamsters are bad, wait till you meet the wretched chinchilla Jul 22, 2021 23:49:17 GMT
soulfromheart: My word of advice : don't mess with the War Groundhogs. Their bunkerholes are near impenetrable and they're naturally distrustful of letting anyone enter. Only someone as suave (and daring!) as Brother Nate may have a chance but hamster queens are easier. Jul 22, 2021 22:39:32 GMT
soulfromheart: Just don't eat what's inside the sandwich bags. Taste funky despite looking quite fresh. ;-| Jul 22, 2021 22:26:35 GMT
LoE: Welcome to amusing mayhem. This room is like a Monty Python sketch. Jul 22, 2021 22:14:28 GMT
glendon: Anyway, hello, room!. Got no idea who is which, but I do enjoy the madness. Jul 22, 2021 22:03:13 GMT
glendon: No enhanced-eucalyptus, they just sit there, lick their thumbs and smile. Jul 22, 2021 22:01:41 GMT
glendon: Regarding the Koalas: Nah, you just gotta remember to target their enhanced-eucalyptus packs, located at the back of the neck. Splash those with a multi-function collagenase, and the tubes running to their mouths disintegrate. Jul 22, 2021 22:00:53 GMT
