hmmm...harina means flour in english and corn flour is not what ye want for corn bread...hasta be corn meal...

 

but no matter, where I live it's hard to find wheat flour for regular bread much less corn meal for corn bread...I looked around at foodland when in BKK  but not in Villa...a lot of times you'll find packaged 'corn bread mix' inna box...just add water, etc...I think that's why my tennessee grandma quit making cornbread because she always wanted to be in control of the ingredients of whatever she made...she always made things from scratch...jesus, her peach cobbler was to die for...

But that is usually corn meal not flour. I found another picture to make it more clear. They also mention (though the text appears very small on the picture) that it is suitable for corn bread.
Maybe some store catering for the African community in Bangkok has it?harina-PAN-back.jpeg

Some Big C used to have Polenta from their French Casino Brand.
I bought it twice and since it was only in a cardboard box it had bugs inside.

I found this interesting one:

saag aloo with eggplant/aubergines...

 

https://www.theguardian.com/food/2019/feb/16/vegan-saag-aloo-spinach-and-potato-curry-aubergine-recipe-meera-sodha

 

very tasty this one, didn't have no spinach and used baby bok choy and good enough...I still had some of the small cans of tomato paste left, last time I looked at makro they had no small cans and just the huge 400g cans which is a disgrace as ye only need a coupla tbbls for any given recipe...whaddaya supposed to do wid a goddam 400g can? one can always use fresh toms, I suppose...

 

didn't have no kashmiri chile powder so used the local flaked red chile instead...gotta be careful with that stuff because if used illiberally it'll burn you a new one...you can get both hot and mild at the market, best to experiment using both and mix and store to get the best effect...black mustard seeds and cumin seeds available at makro...

MD, I tried PMR today and I agree, it was pretty good- so I checked. Wasn't really looking for more caffeine, but ginseng can't be bad. It's definitely not as sweet & delicious as regular Pepsi, guess that's normal for diet sodas. Been a while, but Diet Sprite isn't bad... but it's unavailable.

 

"Pepsi Max is a zero calorie cola beverage... designed to taste more like regular Pepsi than Diet Pepsi by using the sweeteners Aspartame and Ace-k. It contains more caffeine than regular Pepsi and has added ginseng."

My position on food and drink is that if it tastes good, it is good.

I agree!, but just eat it, don't ask what it is.

Yes, knowing what it is can often ruin it for me...

Tried the new raspberry Pepsi max, nice enough...
It's surprisingly good.
Before coke zero was the only light soft drink that tasted acceptable. Pepsi max is awful.
But the raspberry could become my new favourite.

Just had a "Spicy Italian" Subway, on parmesan oregano bread, toasted with all the vegatables and Caesar dressing.

 

That thing was the bomb. Thought I would eat half now and half later, but that didn't work out as planned...

I got a pastrami on rye bread at a downtown deli in Philadelphia once...it cost about $12 (in 2008) and weighed a ton, got back to the office and ate half and then immediately fell asleep for half an hour...took the other half back to the apartment fer supper and it hit the spot with a couple of tall buds from the corner 7/11...

 

didn't have no TV at the temp accommodation but the internet connection was good...man, that mustard was the best I'd ever tasted...a young woman who was practicing with her cello in the courtyard indicated that I had mustard on my chin and I invited her up for a beer but she demurred...she was into the Bach suites for solo cello which are a favorite, never did see her again...

 

tutsiwarrior with a pastrami with mustard and an apparition in Philadelphia, not far from downtown...too weird fer me, I finished my business and got on the next flight back to saudi...
