"Had" during the time of your much-lamented absence from these parts of the interwebs :P

Look forward to seeing what comes next anyhow! :)

Aww thanks, nice to hear someone actually missed me ;) I wish this site was more lively so there was more to participate in besides this thread really!

Yeah, I do my best to recruit and push things forwards but I have an exam and a conference coming up which are taking a lot of time, and I need to get more done on our 2016 convention organising too :/

What sorts of things/threads do you think it would be good to have more of?

Cooked/baked fish I'm less a fan of, but shellfish and smoked fish are the best of things.

Smoked salmon is not quite regular fish tho; while it has fishy taste it's a category of its own. I used to hate fish growing up but after Japan and some good sushi I changed my mind ;p


As for my eating, I just tried Halusky, noodle-dumplings in goat cheese with bacon. I'm not big on noodles but these were daaaamn good. Altho we don't have this specific dish Slovakian food is quite similar to Polish, unsurprisingly. We have "kluski leniwe" which are bit similar but thicker and served sweet most of the time.






What sorts of things/threads do you think it would be good to have more of?


Well, anything partaining to my interests hehe ;) But in general, I always find the "what game are you playing / movie watching / book reading / etc. right now?" type megathreads to be pretty popular in other forums. Otherwise, I think its more about a good community with sufficiently similar interests than one particular type of thread.

I'm in Spain at the moment. I've just had some "bacalao dorado" - the name translates as "gilded cod", so I wasn't quite sure what I was going to get. It turned out to be flaked cod, mixed with scrambled egg, chopped boiled potatoes (I think) and some other vegetable a bit like beansprouts. Very tasty and filling :) I think I've had something similar in Portugal, under the name "bacalhao a Bras".

CG: you should visit Portugal some time. They reputedly have a different way of cooking cod (bacalhao) for each day of the year, and plenty of other fish on the menu too. I'm sure you'd find something you liked.

I had that while I was in Spain, it's great!


@Koob, I made a couple of threads to share anime/web shows and I'll make one for vidya gaems.

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

Traveling cross-Europe reminded me how mediocre Polish beers are... Le Sigh

I really want to start eating more healthy foods, so I'm currently marinading some chicken to have with bean salad for lunches. I've been finding that things like pasta, bread, potatoes etc. have been making me feel too full recently.

I bought some rosemary recently. It turns out it goes well on my bread recipe and on the crumpet pizzas :)

Chicken is nice :) I feel I should eat less meat & dairy in general, but I'm not entirely sure what to eat instead. I'm not a huge fan of cooked pulses; I should probably try more vegetarian pasta options but a lot of those seem to be either quite dull or quite costly.

Oi i used to bake bread for my roommates when i was in my masters. I'd put all sorts of herbs to make it more interesting. I remember rosemary working particularly well indeed :) gave it that genuine Italian taste ;p

I should try making Italian breads at some point, I've mostly made Caucasian and central Asian ones to date.
