What Did You Have For Lunch Today? Wed, 08/6/03 10:03 PM (permalink)
This is a popular thread in another site I frequent, and thought it would go over big here. It should make us all mighty hungry.

My lunch today from QF&H Soul Food Restaurant in Milwaukee:
-cornmeal fried catfish (4 big pieces)
-side of really custardy homemeade mac&cheese
-melty soft string beans
-little cornbread muffins (kind of dry)
-sweet tea
-1/2 piece sweet potato pie, 1/2 fried peach pie

    Lunch today was 2 grilled cheese (extra sharp cheddar) sandwitches and a big bowl of leftover potato soup (with the rest of the cheese dumped in it)

            Hey, CW, you KNOW those onions aren't good for your stomach! Try to be a little more careful next time, huh?

                    I had a "Wrap" sandwich, consisting of Eggplant, Fresh Mozzarella, Roasted Peppers, Arugula, all on a spinach wrap.
                    I got this delicious lunch from, what is quickly becoming my favorite deli, A & A Fine Foods, in Lincoln Park New Jersey.

                      Bushie: The only thing those onions aren't good for is my breath. My stomach tolerated them well. Jimmy John's is on my list of places to take you when you come up and visit. Gee, Bushie, you sound like my mom!

                        Well, somebody's got to look after you until Jane takes over! I can't wait to come back up to Philly. I can tell you've got some great places lined up. I need to start planning...

                          Bushie, FYI, Jane likes hers with brown mustard, onions AND sauerkraut. What a woman! Now you know why I'm marrying her. The Philly area will never be the same after you come up and we do the town!

                              Well, we ate at the Triple A cafe next door to the Farmers Market. I had:

                              Hamburger steak with onions and gravy
                              fried potatoes
                              english pea salad
                              collard greens
                              cornbread
                              sweet tea

                              Yum!

                              Afterwards, before we returned to the office, we walked over to the market where I bought blackeyed peas, cream peas, field corn , snap peas, new potatoes, and oranges.

                              I fixed the field corn for supper to go with some short ribs kraut, and there was not a kernel left.

                              Unfortunately, all I ate was some corn and sliced tomatoes due to the delicious lunch I had!

                                  Another regional diferent name for the same product: In Texas it seems to be "field corn", here in New York it is "sweet corn". Field corn is what we feed to the cattle up here.

                                          Today's lunch was made yesterday, yesterday's lunch was forgotten at home so I had a pretty decent roast beef sub with mayo and mustard at a shack called the Weinie Wagon on the corner of Ill. Rte.47 and Main Street. He doesn't cook much on site but brings it in fresh each day, has everything set and does a pretty good job of putting it all together by himself. Seems real popular with the trucking crowd. Now my today lunch that was made yesterday was a very soggy salad.

                                            Seafarer, field corn IS what is used to feed cattle, but people like it too! It is NOT sweet corn, which is what we like about it!

                                              Today at lunch, after looking in some of the junk/antique stores for some old nightstands to refinsh for my daughter's room, I stopped by the Someburger shack.

                                              You have to stand outside in the heat to order at the window (heat index here is 110 ) but it is worth it. You get a "Someburger" which reminds of a little town drive-in burger. Thin patty with a crusty edged toasted bun heaped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, dill pickles, and lots of onions. Yum!

                                              Someburger is not a chain, just a little joint here in the Houston Heights.

                                                  Heading out on the boat to do some halibut and salmon fishing so lunch is going to be a sandwich on ciabatta bread consisting of prosciutto, grilled red peppers, garden tomato, basil leaves, fresh mozzarella and olive spread as the condiment. FISH ON!

                                                      After pigging out on that "meat and three" in Little Rock yesterday, I just had a homemade ham and cheese sandwich (with some great fresh tomatoes and homemade pickles) for lunch today. Not bad, but sounds like most of you did better. Don't know what's on tap for supper today, but tomorrow noon hope to be able to hit what used to be (haven't been there in several years now) a fine plate lunch restaurant over at DeWitt, AR. As for the corn, to me field corn and sweet corn are two different "animals" Sweet corn from the garden for folks' eating and field corn from the field for feeding livestock, poultry, etc.. However, back when you could find non-hytbrid field corn, my dad and I, contrary to tastes of rest of family and of most people, much preferred the field corn to sweet corn. Just seemed to have more taste and substance to it in all regards. Maybe one reason for our preferring it was that we liked all corn, sweet & field, harder, more mature than did most people. The period of time for using field corn after it matured but before it got too hard was shorter than that for sweet corn. Also, for some biological or genetic reason, which I never knew or at least never understood, the field corn needed to be non-hybrid rather than the hybrid which most of today's corn is. Speaking here of "roasneers" (corn on cob); not fried corn, creamed corn whatever you want to call the cut off the cob type. For that sweet corn is best.

                                                        Like to eat, that is why I was so excited to find the field corn yesterday. You hardly ever see it anymore.

                                                          Congratulations on your find, Lone Star. Finding that corn is some accomplishment! And its good to see someone else, now that my dad is gone, agrees with me about the merits of field corn. That corn with the ribs sounded wonderful. Also know you'll enjoy all those different kids of peas and the potatoes that you got. Your lunch yesterday was my kind of eating (except I'd want unsweetened tea). Believe yesterday was really a banner day for you what with that lunch, those finds, and that supper. Enjoy the remainder.
