    Many fist fights. Nowhere more than in good old NC.

    Possible, I didn't look to in depth just heard it on the food network. Thought it was kind of funny that spaniards come over here discover potatoes, go back home and trade them and then french make french fries. I don't know why I found it funny, maybe I was bored.

    I was gonna smartass it and say 'too much.'

    but I'll go with fusion instead. American cuisine is taking various influences & mixing them together.

    Back to the BBQ: In South Carolina, the sauce is made of mustard and vinigear and is yellow in color.

    Tea isn't American, but ICED tea is.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

Supper might be any number of things. Some of my favorite are cubed steak, oysters, grilled fish, shrimp (grew up on the coast), mashed potatoes, sweet potato anything, okra anything, and boiled peanuts (fresh peanuts are getting too hard to find). I learned to cook from my mom, who learned to cook from her mom, and we all grew up in coastal SC/GA so I probably have a pretty good foundation in regional cooking methods. At least all of my roommates have had no idea how to use an iron skillet.

    I haven't tried chitterlings yet, but I want to go to Mamma Dip's and have them once before I leave.
    Yum, yum... I like your menu. And I assume you mean chitlins... I like 'em with cornbread stuffing, and pan fried.

    p.s. I have a collection of iron skillets, generational hand-me-downs.

    I double checked, so we all can have another pointless fact to spout off when the opportunity arises. It's both. Chop Suey in the late 1800's, Chow Mein in the 1920's.

    Actually, the inside of a snickers bar is based on a 400 year old Italian candy called Torrone. You can get it at Italian grocery stores. It is much tougher and harder than snickers, but basically similar.
