OMG, that sh!t must stink worse than Hilary! My roomy in Ft Riley would sometimes bring back Kimchi. I couldnt stand the smell of that crap, we made a deal early on, warn me before he brought it home and open all the windows.
I do love Southern cooking but Im always suspicious about the content of mixed concoctions, they hide some pretty gross things in there!
As far as Gators assertion that Northern Cooking is blando, Its not so much a blanket style of cooking, were very regional, some of the best eats and were not all that big into bungs, feet and body filters.
Two sentences that should never be said in conjunction with one another- "Boy does that smell terrible"
and "I wonder what it Tastes like"
? The good lord put my Eyes, nose and mouth near each other for a reason, to eliminate the bad stuff without dying. If it looks good and smells good, it might just taste good, using those senses in that order has eliminated most forms of death from food poisoning.
