Wtf are funeral potatoes and why do you call them that?!
Green bean casserole
I was going to ask that exact same thing.
I think it's because Mormons always bring them to funerals and other social events. I'm not Mormon but I grew up around Utah. They're basically cheese, potatoes, green onions and crunchy stuff all baked together. There's a thousand variations but that's how I like them.
How do you do your green bean casserole? It always looked like something that should be delicious but I could never find a good recipe.
What is the crunchy stuff?
I like it exactly like the recipe on the can with extra crunchy onions on top.
I use french's onions or breadcrumbs, some people use cornflakes but I think that's gross.
Delicious gb casserole:
Dice up 1/4 to 1/2 of a small white onion (depending on how much you like onion) and some garlic. Drain and add one of those tiny cans of sliced mushrooms (I cut these as well because I don't like big pieces). Season all with s & p, sautee in butter until soft. Open 2 cans cut green beans (NOT french style) and two cans cream of mushroom soup. Season these with s & p as well, onion powder, garlic powder and a touch of paprika and toss. Add in onion, garlic and mushroom mixture, mix everything well. Spray a casserole pan with Pam, put all ingredients in. Cover with foil. Bake 30 min at 350. Take off foil, cover with sliced or shredded cheese and one can of fried onions. Bake for five more minutes until cheese is melted. Let cool; inhale bliss.
Google tells me they're a popular dish at funerals...but basically they're just cheesy potatoes. I'd have to call them the latter because the former is just depressing.
I don't buy much from the internet in general.
I like saladitos which are hard to find here. I can get them all over the place back home in LA, though.
Mashed potatoes/gravy, stuffing. Some sort of meat - ham, turkey, london broil. Maybe lamb.
Caramel apple cow tails. They used to sell them in stores but now they are only available online. It's been a while since I've bought some. But they are one of my favorite candies. So good.
That basically answers questions 1 and 2
Stuffing, mashed potatoes
Unless it's summer time. Then it's my mom's Italian pasta salad and wings.
No, not that I can think of.
I love cheese curd. So, so, so delicious. There's only one place we can get them around here, and it's about an hour away, but it's on the way home from where we go camping so we have to stop and get them every single time.
I need my mom's apple pie, or else it's not truly Thanksgiving. She uses my grandma's recipe, which she has promised she'll give me someday so I can carry on the tradition. Other than that, we at least need the standard stuff -- turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans.
i've been contemplating buying tim tams from the internet, but they are ridiculously expensive. also i heard they might be available in target stores in the US? i haven't found any yet. i've never had them, but i've heard good things.
stuffing. green bean casserole, too. about five or six years ago, it became mandatory that i make macaroni and cheese on thanksgiving and christmas. it's such a weird component of the meal, but everyone loves it. my sister decided when she was ~18 that she didn't like turkey (and insisted she never ever ate turkey or ham at holiday meals EVER; weirdest retroactive lie ever) so now there's always some sort of pasta dish for her, like stuffed shells or baked ziti. my mom makes it every year and then screams about how no one eats it, what a waste of food, my sister barely ate any of it. my mom then spends the next day swearing that she will never ever make it ever ever again. haha.
Do you live near a Cost Plus World Market? (Or just World Market in some states.) They sell something called "Arnott's Chocolate Biscuits" that are basically Tim Tams but without the name.
they didn't have them at mine for a while, but they've brought them back now. Possibly at the regular grocery store too, but I might be making that up. I just know I felt like they were everywhere yesterday...
I really want to order a case of mozzarella whip from Wisconsin because I got addicted to it when I camped in the UP at the border of WI and it's impossible to find anywhere else!
I've gotten Dunkaroos on Amazon before...that was pretty awesome. I love French macarons and am fortunate enough to live close enough to places that sell them but if I didn't I would definitely be ordering them online
Cinnamon rolls on New Years morning, Turkey/cranberry sauce/mashed potatoes/green bean casserole/marshmallow yams/pumpkin pie for Xmas and Thanksgiving
I love mochi! I have only seen them at the Japanese grocery that is far from me :(
i buy the rainbow 24 case of Zevia on amazon.
