Was thinking this might be a fun thread. Because everyone likes
to eat right?! 馃榾

We could post up all kinds of videos, pictures, and links, or anything
having to do with food. Whether it鈥檚 breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or
something in between. ..Even recipes, or your favorite food you like
to make, or even get out, or order in. If it鈥檚 something you like, have
fun, and post it up if you like. 馃槈


I鈥檒l get things started with some eating challenge videos I watched
recently.

This young lady will amaze you below, and she has a ton of other
videos as well. But here she is having a nice breakfast, lunch, and
dinner. 馃槉


I hope that you enjoy:

Honestly, I am at a loss to understand why people do this. It's not exactly healthy for the body and seems a colossal waste of food that could be used in other ways. But that's just me.

I read you sir, it鈥檚 amazing how many restaurants actually have these
challenges. And I remember first seeing them on a show called Man
vs. Food on the Food Network year鈥檚 back. But now it鈥檚 done all of
the time by people. With many of them being on YT like this. 馃槉

When I am in Thailand I once in a while take a break from Thai food and when I see a street vendor making Schwarmas I just have to have one, in fact, I usually order a couple, one for the moment and another for later. They are 40 baht for a small which is a US dollar and change to 60 baht for a large which is a little less than 2 US dollars. If you never had a schwarma they are the Middle Eastern version of a chicken burrito, this vendor also had tuna shwarmas but I opted for the chicken

I always tell people that visit Thailand always check out the street food. Many travelers are afraid of street food they think it is unclean or they will get sick, that may be true in certain circumstances and you can get sick in walkin restaurants too, you have to use common sense, for one thing never eat any meat that is uncooked. In most circumstances, street food is usually a healthier option. Street vendors prepare and cook right in front of you so you can see everything that goes into your food. Everything is fresh, and they usually never refridgerate because they usually sell out by the evening with no leftovers. When you go to a restaurant you never know what goes on behind closed doors and how old the food they use is. If you really want to be safe always eat cooked food including vegetables and meats but if you choose salads or any raw food then try to verify they use filtered water to clean the veggies. Almost all street vendors care about their customers as they rely on repeat customers they also live in the same community so you do not want to poisiong your neighbors as they know where to find you.

You make so many excellent points here above Bob, that it鈥檚 amazing. :)
It鈥檚 interesting how people seem to think the same no matter where they
are in the planet. Because I feel like a lot of people are wary of street food
here as well. And although there are a bunch of food trucks, and they do
seem to have a lot of business. There are those who would rather go out
to a restaurant, or trust restaurants more as you said. However, when you
think about it, food would, or should be very fresh with street food. 馃檪

I mean if you know people are coming for breakfast, lunch, or dinner,
then you can really only get those supplies right before people start
to arrive. Whereas if you have a restaurant, those storage rooms, as
well asrefrigerators could have had food in them for a while. ..You
just never know.

Oh, and I love where you pointed out how street food business
owners often live right in the same town. Or city as their customers,
and want to make sure that they keep their neighbors healthy, and
happy. 馃槈 Great point, as well as points all the way around !!!

there lately right?! 馃槈 Everything from pumpkin pies, and muffins, to
pumpkin cookies, and creamers.

Anyone like sweet potatoes? Or have some type of sweet potato
casserole of some type during Thanksgiving?

Or just during the year perhaps? 馃檪

There seem to be a ton, but these look to a couple nice ones...






And by the way, do you have any thanksgiving side dishes you like?
Or any day side dishes you enjoy?

Happy Thanksgiving ahead of time by the way !!! 馃崅 :);)
