weird sandwich making rituals

I also have to spread the mayo or mustard evenly over the entire sandwich touching all sides, but one or the other, never mustard and mayo together, that's just wrong. Also, and I guess this is pretty weird, I love tomatoes but detest the seeds, they're slimy and gross, so I have to completely deseed a tomato before it goes on my sandwich.

What are you canning this season?

I would really like to start canning but don't know how. Is there a website or book that would teach me how to at least get started?

Do you eat a bed-time snack? What is it?

Lately for some reason it anything and everything, especially ice cream, candy, doritos, pistachios, cookies, no rhyme or reason really, just really yummy and really fattening............if I get up in the middle of the night (which is a lot) I HAVE to have oreos and milk, I've been doing that almost my whole life and I don't know why...

thanks for the great sounding recipes, I'm going to try today, just wondering, can I put any kind of good grated cheese in the meatballs?


Thanks everyone for the great cheese advice, (and no wookie, no Italian in-laws!!!), just trying to improve my cooking with all of you great cooks out there! Thanks.

Ah the ignorance of youth...strange food beliefs as a child...

I have the greatest mom in the world, however, it wasn't until I started eating other people's food that I found out that rice is not a mound of mush (but I still don't care for rice) that you could cook chicken in a lot of other ways than boil it (yuck, no flavor) that vegetables actually tasted great when not boiled beyond recognition, that meatballs tasted pretty good when mixed with spices and things and not just ground meat balled up, etc....(I used to hang around my friend's mom who was Italian and hoped to be asked to dinner) I love you mom! p.s. my mom made killer BIG dinners like roast beef, roasted potatoes, turkey dinners, & pork roasts.

Cause and Effect

MOST favorite cookbook in collection

Thanks everyone! I don't know which to buy first, (I'd honestly like to get them all) they all sound great! I have a feeling cookbooks will quickly become my new passion.

What is more of a 'deal breaker'--food or books?

I agree wholeheartedly with Karen Resta, while I love both food and books, I am of the opinion that the heart and soul of a person determines their worth.
