    @Maximus YES!! Nice sharp spicy bite but also good flavor! They are nicely crunchy too......here in the USA the only place I can find these is in our local Winco Supermarket. Walmart or the other food stores don't have them......they are made in Mexico.

    @Maximus In my quest to find more variations of Taki's , I have found that "Fuego" is NOT the spiciest version....they have a "Nitro" Habanero version, see below. I guess the Fuego is like a normal T-70 X-Wing, Nitro is like Poe's with the extra rocket engine on the back....

    Then on to some Fried Octopus Doughballs. Theze are freshly prepared to order & very nice nice but a bit heavy.

    It’s certainly among the best I have had. Though next time I will probably go for the Edamame Beans

    Interesting, I'll have to take a look. I see Fuego just about everywhere, I tried them for the first time about a year ago and they've quickly risen up the ranks of my favorite snacks. It's a pleasant surprise to find out these exist, I love habanero flavored things. Figure living in New York I would've stumbled across them by now.

    That salmon looks lovely @Addi Ras. I’m not salmon’s biggest fan, but I’d demolish that lol.

    How were the beans? :)

    @Addi Ras you're making me miss Japan! :rolleyes:

    https://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/bacon-bourbon-collards

    Made this recipe for Thanksgiving and while I'm not the biggest fan of collard greens in general, this one is ACE. The samples went so well with my family it's been upgraded to the annual menu! One step closer to running a full Thanksgiving...

    So here’s a cultural thing from German Christmas tradition: mostly by the start of December, all over Germany the Christmas fairs and markets will be held until X-mas.

    This is how it looks at the market square in my old hometown:

    xmas_market_01.png

    xmas_market_02.png

    xmas_market_03.png


    And when it’s cold and dark outside, what’s better than a hot mug of spiced whine @Maximus:

    xmas_market_04.png

    xmas_market_04a.png

    xmas_market_05.png

    Or even better still, Feuerzanbowle with rum & sugar loaf flambee.

    xmas_market_06.png

    Note that there are numerous recipes out there for what to put into a hot spiced mulled wine, incl. star anise, vanilla, cardamom etc. etc. among the basics of cinnamon, cloves and orange peel & juice.

    Same over here, rainy with stormy winds, no good conditions to go to such fairs. Maybe I will tour the ones in the near vicinity of where I live now this weekend, but will be at the one above by next weekend, as my pa still lives there and it's home to me.
