I've had free food that the military provided that was way worse than miso soup. I'm completely ambivalent on miso soup. I don't think I've ever had a take on miso soup other than "Oh yeah. We get a small bowl of this before we eat the food we came here to pay for."
I get it. My point is it tastes like shit, so no matter how small or free it is, it tastes and smells horrible.
Enjoy every sandwich.

Hmm. That's fair. I don't find it that reprehensible, but I also hate olives, melon, and cucumber.

A crostini with fresh basil or pesto, tomato, and mozzarella is one of the greatest things going.

A great, less-fancy quick snack is to put spaghetti sauce and mozzarella on an english muffin or a bagel and microwave it. I call it bastard pizza.

I find its one of those sandwiches that aren't around enough for it to be in my regular rotation but, if I ever found a great local one, I'd probably overdo it very quickly. Simple perfection.

Vegeta seasoning on sauteed vegetables is fantastic.

Heard about on an r/cooking thread a couple weeks back about "secret" things to improve food. Ordered and wow.

Did some design work for that mall a couple years back when they renovated*.

In other takes: Tzatziki is superior to both ranch and sour cream and should be substituted for either in any instance.

We used to go to Menlo Park with some regularity when the kids were little because they loved the Rainforest Cafe.

I have tzatziki burps right now, because I had some at lunch and cucumber does that to me. But worth it.

Both are shit.

Had a banh mi for lunch yesterday. Nothing near the top level but both the bread and chicken were solidly above replacement for an overall fine experience.

The two worst non-fruit things to get on Halloween were candy corn and Brach's hard caramels.

Butterfinger's fine in my book.

I still don't get the hate for Candy Corn. I wouldn't necessarily pick it up at a Wawa but I would certainly take a small handful from the candy jar in the break room.

Now Circus Peanuts. That's a garbage candy. I'd pass that right by in the break room, along with the yellow plaster they call Butterfinger.
