Ooh! Scary! Scary! Don't we look mean? You can't see me! But I can see you!
For instance, if you decided to go to BK and buy croissanwhiches for your team... you could post something like that. Man, those went over well.

And might I add, that I love my coffee girl at Dunn Bros. She suggested I try the Free Trade El Salvador Full City Roast and man, that is the best coffee ever.

Or the coffee is good enough that she doesn't care.

Well, not since we switched to the new forum and she didn't. ;-)

"The guys on Spork are giving me a hard time about my verbage in a thread."

"What do you mean?"

"Well there is this food and beverage thread and I mentioned that I loved my coffee girl at Dunn Bros and that she suggested I try the Free Trade El Salvador Full City Roast and man, that is the best coffee ever."

"Oh"

"And you're supposed to be mad at me."

"Oh. (she laughs) You can tell them it worked. I'm mad at you now."

Thanks, a lot FLL. :-P ;-)

You can love your coffee girl without loving her. ;-)

If anybody is in the market for a toaster oven, I highly recommend this one. Best. Toaster. Oven. Ever.

Tanqueray and (Diet) Polar Tonic - cold and crisp and clearer than water the way diamonds sparkle more than glass. Perfectly cool and soothing counterpoint to a good cigar, and hey, the inlaws got me a cigar sampler for Crimbo! I smoke mostly CAO's, as I like my stogies with a bit of bite and a lot of 'baccy buzz, but I will smoke these in good faith! Mostly mass-market cigar-shop staples, but I hadn't tried any of them, so I'll give it a go. My results thus far:

The Macanudo - much derided by afficcionados, mostly because they were so popular with rich idiots in the '90s. Guess what? It's a damn fine cigar. Soft and billowy on the tongue, silk sheets and downtempo electronica. Perfect draw, cool burn. Complex tobacco flavors, allspice and pepper notes. Nice, nice, nice. It deserved to be as popular as it was. The psychotropic effect of tobacco was very, very present. Wrote a story and though of the premise for four others before it was done. Need to buy more.

Sancho Panza - Newly beloved of the low-buck indy-cred smokers, and they're idiots. The very definition of a "Dog Rocket." Harsh, bitter, difficult draw, burned too hot and so left a piney aftertaste. Bleah. Might as well smoke a Philly Blunt.

Punch - Very nice, very mellow, but doesn't taste of anything, apart from some weak vanilla notes. Pleasing, with a cool-but-quick draw, but not memorable. Great to give someone who doesn't normally smoke. Pretty good stimulant, but not the mind-expanding goodness a great cigar should have.

I've never found myself in need of a toaster oven or Longaberger Basket. What do you use your TO for?

What a journey.

Mainly, I use mine for Toast. It's much better for controlling the toastiness. I also like to put butter (or smart balance) on my toast and then put it back into the toaster. Conventional upright toasters get messy and smoke after awhile whereas the toaster oven allows you to melt the butter without major dripping. I have cooked small pizzas, tortillas for quesadillas and other re-heat items as well that are better heated without microwaves.

I have cooked pizza, chicken breasts, pork chops, corn dogs, french-fries, tater-tots, veggie-burgers, grilled-cheese sandwiches... and, of course, toast.

I never thought of TOAST. I thought the name referenced the toasting as in style of cooking. Not the FOOD ITEM.
Funny, they are going ON AND ON about old Sunbeam toasters on the radio here today.

What a journey.

It's a toaster with benefits.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
When I lived in the commerce st. artist's warehouse in houston in a very primitive loft a toaster oven was my cooking device along with a coleman stove.

In college I cooked beef roasts and casseroles in my toaster oven. I'm a lousy cook, but I was better than the cafeteria chefs.

I use my toaster oven more often that my regular oven. Also great for toasting larger items, like bagels. and melting cheese on toast. mmmmm.
