Hot Sauce On Pancakes

When I would go to a small diner growing up, there was a man there would did the strangest thing with his pancakes. The man did not put butter on top or syrup covering the cakes. Instead, he put on hot sauce. I thought it looked disgusting, but I am the kind of person that does not knock things until I try them. So, I tried it. Would I do it again? Probably not, but the experience was a little spicy. Definitely not what I would have ever thought to do. How about you? Would you try this concoction out?

What's your favorite fast food restaurant?

Even though we know most of the options aren't really that healthy, most of us still eat fast food and often. It's a quick and cheap option compared to going to the grocery store to buy food and cook it. We might eat multiple places in a week's time, but almost everyone I know has their favorite spot. Out of these four, which one is yours? If it's not listed, add it in the comments.

Ketchup on pizza!?!

I am from New York, so I take pizza seriously. And I do mean seriously. Like if you asked me where the best pizza is within 5 minutes of any part of the city, I can probably tell you. Anyways, I have some 'friends' who put ketchup on their pizza, which to me is sacrilege, but they say everyone does it in their family does it. Is this something I was just never aware of? Tell me your thoughts, does ketchup belong anywhere near a pizza?

Best Thai dish for my mouth

I grew up eating my momma's cooking, mostly American/German styles. But, now that I am living on my own, I eat out a bit and just tried Thai food for the first time (i know). OMG. how amazing is Thai food? I had the green curry and it blew my mind. What is your fav?

Do you strain your rice?

I just saw this absolutely hilarious video from 'Uncle Roger' about non-Asian people cooking rice. As someone who live for a while in Asia, this was one of the funniest videos I have seen in a long time. and it got me thinking, do people really strain their rice like this/

Which Service Do You Prefer?

Recently I have begun working as a DoorDash delivery driver. While this is not something I want to do (full-time) for long, it is working out pretty well so far. Starting to wish I'd started months ago instead of picking up that last job I did which made me only half as much per hour and with tons of stupid rules to go along with the poor pay. Anyway, that's a bit off topic. As I drive around and make deliveries I have occasionally run into other similar delivery services such as Grubhub and Ubereats. To my knowledge all of them typically work in similar ways, thought as someone who also looked into Ubereats, one difference that means a lot to me specifically between Ubereats and DoorDash is the lack of necessity to have a 4 door car. It's something that makes total sense if you are driving people around, but totally nonsensical when all you are driving around is food. (So to anyone out there thinking, like I did for so long, that you can't even deliver food because your car only has two doors, see if DoorDash is available in your area). Anyway, back to my question. I've never actually used any of these services myself before signing up to work for one of them, so I'm wondering, for people who have used these services before, do you typically have a preference of one over the others or is it just dependent on who delivers from your favorite places to eat?

Should I stock up for the Polar Vortex?

I just moved to New York and I couldn't have had worse timing because the Polar Vortex/Winter Hurricane/Bomb Cyclone is about to make its way to the East Coast. Despite the dramatic terminology, I'm not all that worried about it. What I am a little concerned about is grocery shopping. I have some food in the fridge, but probably not enough to last me through the end of the week. I'm not going to want to venture out to a grocery store in the middle of a storm, but I could always just order something for delivery if I do end up running low. That would definitely cost more than grocery shopping, but it would save me a trip to the store.

Sleepless on Alcohol?

I recently started trying new types of alcohol, buying various kinds from the grocery store to drink them at home. Usually I don't drink by myself, but I figured having a bottle/can a night, maybe twice a week, wouldn't be harmful. But I recently noticed something about myself that I never noticed before - alcohol gives me energy. I drank a single bottle of beer around 6-7 pm, but it kept me up all night! I absolutely couldn't sleep. It energized me more than a cup of coffee.

I've talked to a few people about it, but they've never heard of this effect. Alcohol is supposed to be a sedative, but a single beer made me energetic. I'm not a stranger to alcohol; the beer barely affected me in any other way. I'm a little irritated that I'm not going to be able to have a single bottle of beer unless I drink it before 4 pm! Does anyone else have this reaction to alcohol? No one else I've talked to has had this reaction. How do I enjoy a bit of alcohol without being awake all night?
