I can smell burnt toast in the next county. Burnt toast is like an after fire sale to me, you never get rid of that smell. Sometimes there is the psychological burnt toast, where something rubs you so much the wrong way that you just cant get that smell outta' yo' head. Then there is the flavor factor - you either like it or you never will under any circumstances. I fall under those 'any' circumstances. Picky? No I dont think so, its burnt. You're burnt or whatever.

Thats how I roll. I dont eat burnt toast and I can smell it in the next county. In fact I should work for Homeland Conservation and I can help eradicate burnt toast from households across America, making this a more bread friendly country eager to get back to our roots secure in knowing that we are OK, not to mention the smaller carbon footprint.

I think I am winter stir crazy. I have made two batches of beer, a nut brown ale that is now bottle conditioning and a hefweizen that is fermenting, I 'tried' the last whole batch of pale ale and it gets high marks,maybe next time I will share some. My blog has a birthday coming up on March 2 when it turns 5 - can you believe it, my little baby is growing up, we could have a kegger in its honor. Rootbeer will be available for the nonimbibers so remember that everyone is welcome.



I ate a pepperoni and jarlsberg grilled cheese (panini)



My kid had a curried chicken as an afternoon snack.



All on toast and none of it was burnt!

starrlife said...

I wanna some root beer and alcoholic stuff too! 5 years- wow. Doggy B.- you are super cool! I visit more than I comment too, words about food could get boring with yummy every post!

Elise said...

Yum!!!

doggybloggy said...

mandi: I know you do.

starrlife: you are not the only one that reads between the lines.

elise: Hey! yum right back.

Just telling it like it is said...

burnt toast... I think my gramma used to make burnt toast and runny eggs..

Jason said...

Burnt popcorn is as bad or worse. People who burn popcorn in the microwave at work should be arrested.

doggybloggy said...

telling: case in point.

jason: can I get some more witnesses?

Joy said...

I hate burned toast, too - the smell is awful and who wants to eat charcoal?

Oh, yes! Jason is right about the popcorn! Ugh!

ap said...

I concur - burnt toast is the worst! A kegger @ your house - can we come?

Jaime said...

Thanks for letting me know! I don't mind at all that you borrowed it. :)

5 Star Foodie said...

Love the burned toast picture but it's the Homeland security badge that made me almost jump off my chair (used to work for them!). Wow, 5 years coming up - that's big! Yummy sandwiches!

TavoLini said...

I actually like burnt toast. And charred pizza. Pretty much everything kind of well done. It goes well with beer ;)

(hey that link to the burnt toast blog didn't work for me)

pinknest said...

yech to burnt toast. although i do love crispy!

doggybloggy said...

joy: I think you are right about jason being right

ap: come one come all

jaime: thanks - I was waiting to get your OK before I fixed the link...

5 star: I invented 'homeland conservation' maybe they will ask me to be in a cabinet position...

tavolini: see, some people like it...I fixed the link...

pinknest: golden and crunchy is way different than charred and dusty...

buffalodick said...

Burnt food of all varieties pisses me off! A smoke alarm is not a food timer! Jarlsberg and pepperoni.. I bet you were the only person in America eating that combo- but not anymore! Sounds friggin' good right now!

Tanya Kristine said...

amen, bro.

Micky-T said...

My wife loves burnt toast so over all these years I've gradually become able to not mind slightly burnt.
Your right about the smell, it lingers forever.

Emily said...

I'd like to try some of your homemade brew. Sounds fantastic!

And you make quite the sandwich. Panini, I should say.

H said...

I hate burnt toast and my husband likes it. He is always turning up the toaster! and then when I go to toast it gets burnt agh!!

Mo Diva said...

You hate burnt toast, I hate burnt popcorn in my office microwave.

duodishes said...

Well done and burnt toast are 2 different things. Well done=good. Cajun=very baaaaaaaaad. Helps when you're dealing with big hunks of bready lovin' like you have there. Much harder to burn!

Marjie said...

Burnt anything drives me nuts. You've probably noticed that even my bread crust is light colored! Hang on through the winter cabin fever....I've heard that spring may come in a couple of months!

Joie de vivre said...

I made ebelskievers yesterday and accidently burned them. My children still wanted to gobble them up, but I didn't want to touch them.

Beth said...

I kinda like burnt toast.... sorry!

and I wanna live with you Dog. Seriously, THAT'S a snack??! My boys would LOVE to be your kid!

doggybloggy said...

buff: probably, I guess the jarlsberg/pepperoni isnt the most popular

TK: halelujia

micky t-: so you are making culinary compromises huh?

emily: the beer is so smooth and flavorful and it gives no hang over

H: I have tried to comment on your blog and something isnt working right

mo: I am with you on that as well

duo: you dont like cajun?

marjie: it isnt anal its just particular - thats what I tell people

joie: ebelskievers? what on earth are those? google here I come

beth: healthy snacks are the best - he never developed a taste for junk...thanks to me!

Stacey Snacks said...

I think you have the oldest food blog so far. 5 yrs, I had no idea!

I hate the smell of burnt toast. I have to open the windows.
I am so in the mood for curried chicken salad all day today, and I had jarlsberg cheese too, with honey mustard, toasted.

Chef E said...

I love that pic...too funny...I tried to go to the link you put on 5 Star about truffle toast, can you email me the link?

Like the sandwich...from afar though, now that wheat is an allergy issue...

Chef E said...

Oh and I agree about the smell factor I too have a nose that can smell across the country...I know when my neighbors are cooking and what they are cooking...

Real Live Lesbian said...

What is wrong with people?

You cannot scrape it and make it un-burned.

Zen Chef said...

Hey! Your food blog and me have the same birthday! I expect a keg of beer as a present. I'll get something for your blog too, like a toaster or something. :-)

doggybloggy said...

stace snacks: well it hasnt always been all about food - it evolved, and it still digresses as well.

E: make it on a bed of greens - super tasty no matter what...just dont burn it.

real: scrape all you want - its still burnt toast....LOL but you are the only one that mentioned the only practical thing to do - I've done it but it still smells burnt.

Zen: be a good uncle zen to my little five year old...I can toss you a liter or two but we dont need another toaster...pices.

Anndi said...

There is nothing like an excellent sandwich.

Jessica@Foodmayhem said...

So terrible but my dad likes burnt toast. I know! I'm ashamed.

Jeanne said...

Five years?! Wow, I've been doing this less than five months, and I already have days where I feel like burnt toast.

doggybloggy said...

anndi: except for maybe two sandwiches..

jessica@: I think we all know someone if it isnt ourselves in this matter.

jeanne: yup 5 years of finding my blog voice and then finding it again and then again - its like I am always searching for my tendo..perfection seems to elude me.

Ricardo said...
