13. PB&J sandwich (Who in the Western world *hasn't* had one of these?)
*puts hand up*
Aside from considering peanut butter a toast spread rather than a sandwich spread, I've never felt the need to have it with jam. (also, peanut butter is apparently a different enough substance here that Aldi sells 'American-style' peanut butter in addition to it's normal one.)
29. Baklava (Isn't this a kind of sweater? o_O )
No, 'Tis concentrated yumminess, a middle-eastern sweet consisting of nuts, honey and filo pastry. A balaclava, which is probably what you're thinking of, is like a woolly hat, only with eye holes so you can pull it down over your face; they're more associated with crime than the cold.
79. Lapsang souchong (I might have, I'm not sure.)
This is a smoky-flavoured tea, my mother loves it, but it can no longer be bought in our town.

Now this I would like to see, since I can't concieve of any way to make peanut butter than the way I see it every day. You might as well have told me that your *butter* is different.

I knew a balaclava was some kind of woolen clothing.

LOL! So a balaclava is a ski mask!

PS
Actually, now that I think about it, around here they sell - along with the regular stuff - "organic" peanut butter. Which is basically powdered peanuts mixed with peanut oil. No thickening agents, I don't even know if it has sugar. I tried some once. Absolutely wretched stuff! I don't know how anyone can stand to put that crap in their mouth.

Re: PS
Ours isn't exactly like that organic stuff you mention (ingredients list: peanuts (86%), vegetable oil, sugar, salt), but comparing our current peanut butter's nutrition information with what WolframAlpha gives, ours seems to be saltier and have fewer carbohydrates (the thickeners you mention?).

I find that odd, because about the only thing peanut butter is good for, IMHO, is PB&J sammiches. Well, that and candy (chocolate and peanut butter mixed together is a gift from God). Or spreading on gram1 crackers.

I hear people in some countries put it with chicken, and I get grossed out. Peanut butter is a dessert-type kind of thing, IMO, and putting peanut butter with chicken is, to my mind, like chopping up chicken and mixing it in with ice cream. >O<

1 = I know this is misspelled. I can't find a spelling that doesn't look wrong to me.

You've had heirloom tomatoes.

With regards to plants, especially fruits and veggies, "heirloom" means it's a variety from *before* all the massive cross breeding and the like. Those odd purple tomatoes I used in that tomato and whatnot "salad" were almost certainly an heirloom variety.

Seas urchins have a nummy inside (or so I'm told). Found in some sorts of sushi.

Kaoiln is *clay*, not rock, btw.

Also, no, carp is not likely to be found in fish sticks.

We need to go downtown sometime and get you a hot dog from one opf the street vendors.

That Greek Deli over on Burnside has baklava,.

And what do you have against cherry wine, blackberry wine, etc?

Cool.

Wines and beers smell horrible.
