    Thank you! Another recipe I can use for leftover potatoes that isn't Shepard's pie or perogies.

    but madeleines have lemon in them, no almonds. i love them.
    Dunno, I've only had madeleines in France and pretty sure they tasted like Amaretto. There was a distinct slight bitterness about them that I hated. According to wikipedia madeleines with lemon zest are a variation. Normally they are made with finely ground almonds.

    They can say what they want about the Brits (and by extension, Aussies) but Americans eat candy made out of wax. WTF is that all about?

    Candy corn or some shit. I discovered the world of wax candy right here on GR and I wish I hadn't.

    weird. every madeleine i've ever eaten in france has been the lemon zest variety, never had the almond ones. i probably wouldn't like them. the lemon zest ones are lovely though.

    I now wish I'd gotten to try the lemon zest ones. Maybe in the area where I lived (Auvergne) they were not made at all.

    I love number 10!


    10. Why do so many things in the UK NOT taste like peanut butter?

    In fact, the ONLY thing in the UK that tastes like peanut butter is peanut butter.


    If this were America: Chocolate would taste like peanut butter (and does). Cereal would taste like peanut butter (and does). There’s even a house made of peanut butter in Colorado:

    This is EXACTLY why I know Colorado is my soul state. I love peanut butter and peanut butter flavoured things, that's the saving grace for my waistline that I live in the UK and not the US.

    eta: I laughed out loud at #3 on the list...all my American friends got so confused when I asked them if they were alright, haha

    Auvergnat accent was a bit of a problem. I think the funniest thing about it was that they have a weird s sound It's a really thick "sh" for s sounds. In the beginning I thought they all had some speech impediment. I also loved how older people called me "Mon choux". I thought Clermont-Ferrand was very ugly but I find myself missing it sometimes.

    My husband's grandma sneaks all of the giblets (guts) into her stuffing so no one under 40 will eat it any more. She likes to dice the liver up and throw it in there too. There's something about the depression mentality with her too. They were farmers and would eat cow brains and "rocky mountain oysters" (cow balls) any time they could.

    I did try foie gras once without knowing exactly what it was. It reminded me of chewing on a hunk of bacon fat and I hate bacon. I'll eat anything that grows in the ground except for beets which are the damn devil! Aside from my Nona's meatballs and my mom's meatloaf, I'm essentially a vegetarian so this whole thread has me skeeved out.
