I've had boiled peanuts at a ballpark in North Carolina, a roadside stop in Georgia and at a relative's house in South Carolina. All of them were disgusting. Never had Chinese boiled peanuts, but based on how most boiled Chinese food (aside from noodles) tastes, I expect they are nasty, too.

Boiled peanuts deserve their own thread

My dog is lying on the living room floor trying to sound as impatient as he possibly can.

Where are you located? (making sure this is legit chinese food and not some white knockoff crap)

Memory is such a fascinating thing. I just came across the music video for "Papa Don't Preach" (not on purpose wasn't looking for it). The moment I saw it I had a really strong image of the smell of the house I lived in when the song first came out. (As I recall, MTV promoted it very heavily, so it was on a lot.)

Wife left me alone poolside for what seems like an hour. In retaliation, I drank her entire cocktail laugh.gif

I just read a story at ESPN website about how a wide receiver for the Washington Huskies college football team was quitting football to focus on overcoming his depression. Against my better judgment, I clicked on the comments. I fully expected to see at least 75% of the comments calling him a loser or a weakling or whatnot. As it turned out, almost 100% of the comments were supportive and encouraging. I was pleasantly surprised.

We just got back from a nice afternoon up at Sutter Creek, a little Gold Rush-era town up in the Sierra Foothills. After a little heartburn, we decided to take our new puppy with us (14 weeks old). We were worried that having him with us might be a problem, but as it turns out Sutter Creek's main street is very dog friendly. Several of the stores even had bowls of water out front for dogs to drink from. we took him into most of the stores and everyone seemed to be happy to see him.

We ate at an open-fronted restaurant, where we were able to sit at a table right be the open front, where Finn settled down and happily napped for an hour. All in all, it was a really nice way to spend the day. smile.gif

Great little town. My ski buddy lives in Pine Grove so we go there a lot. Almost moved there awhile back but its really hard to leave Santa Cruz.

I've bounced around a lot, plus I used to date a Chinese chick (ABC, not FOB). I've definitely had stuff not intended for white folks.

Surprisingly, one of my favorites was a place in Houston. Can't remember the name, but it was right off the highway, beside a motorcycle dealership. Killer food.

Very nice! We're planning to go again next year, probably to Provence. Where are you going?
