    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    MMMMM! I'd love to slap some of that on some toast right now.

    I guess cinnamon, sugar, and butter will have to do.

    Thanks for making me hungry.


    Sorry about that, VM. I'd say there are few better flavor combinations in the world than sweet apple butter on crunchy toast with hot bacon on the side.

    Two more items for my list, both retro: Swedish meatballs and cocktail sausages.

    Runners-up:

    Fresh bacon, believe it or not the microwave seems to do the best job of cooking it just right (1min. per piece) though keeping papertowel taste off is a challenge. I have been known to eat a 1/2lb at a time.

    Pretty much anything with meat and salt combined. Virginia spiral cut ham with grainy spicy mustard. The "Geneva Convention" (local sausage shop sandwich including bratwurst, kraut, grainy mustard, sauteed onions and swiss melted over it). I really like char broiled Vietnamese food as well.

    Boddington's Pub Ale is dangerously tasty.

    Best tasting food of my life thus far, sadly not available anymore (restaurant closed):

    Adobada (bbq-marinated pork) tacos with fresh pico de gallo, green salsa, lime and sea salt. If I ever need to salivate profusely, I will just think of this. Dry mouth? Never again.

    I'll see your ripe Stilton and raise you a Mimolette.
    Saint Andre and Explorateur.
    Brie and Camembert (but I'm easily pleased).

    Sushi (I'm a pescatarian; the only flesh I eat is fish).
    Lobster roll (esp. at that place out beyond Cape Elizabeth. I can't remember the name).
    Oborodofu (the tofu-of-the-house made by various Japanese restaurants and served with raw sea salt. All of the soy, none of the moral superiority!).
    Edamame (OK, you eat soy and like it. Stop preaching!).
    Caesar salad (What, you're vegan? Put down that fork!).
    Kimchi and just about any Korean food.
    Malai kofta and just about any Indian food.
    Thai food in general. Same goes for Vietnamese food.
    Gado-gado (possibly the only way to eat soy and be decadent at the same time).
    A good, ripe avocado.
    A properly ripe mango and . . .
    Durian ( the Bible's got it wrong; this was the original Forbidden Fruit -- and it still is!).

    Cognac -- I'd rather be a good liver than have one.
