Back when I still smoked cigarettes, my favorite meal was chicken livers, fried crisp outside and velvety inside, a large mound of cottage cheese and steamed asparagus (strangely enough, I wasn't fat then). To that, today, I would add sauteed mushrooms and a side of deviled eggs. Alongside that I would have a small bottle of cabernet sauvignon.

Yep. That would do it for me.

I was mentioning on another thread, the current research on medicinal marijuana. It's looking more and more like this other component known as CBD (as opposed to THC) is the true medicinal component. So then, the "high" would be more a side effect of the medicine. Now they are trying to cultivate strains that are low in THC and high in CBD as small children prone to seizures are actually benefitting from this.

Truthfully, a reduction in THC does not bother me at all. I joke about it but in reality I don't smoke anymore because the stuff they are producing these days is just too strong for me. My friend Doug says the same thing and we were both potheads back in high school. Back in the day, it was a relaxant, now it's like a stimulant. No way. Coffee's bad enough.

It was good. Flour dusted, cooked in olive oil and a small amount of butter and black pepper.Removed them once cooked brown, and then cooked PEI mushrooms in the reserve and added sherry and sea salt to the 'shrooms. I steamed fresh yellow string beans from my garden. On the side were small boiled new Annopolis valley potatoes with home made green tomato chow-chow on top. Yummy. I had blueberry pie with French vanilla icecream and a margarita to finish. A good last meal contender.

Ok. Provided I don't know it's my last meal and God happens to time it so that I don't actually know it's my last meal (in which case I couldn't eat):

My brother-in-law's Italian restaurant, "Michael's." Beef tenderloin and mushrooms in Michael's wine sauce, with the french fried onions on top, and a side of spaghetti with Michael's AWESOME Italian "gravy." Salad with Michael's house dressing. Red wine. With Michael's grand player piano in the background, playing beautifully whatever...

Maybe I should start ordering a lobster tail with that. Just in case.

Ed... a pub here in Moncton used to (I haven't been to a pub in well over 10 years) serve fried mussels and they were far better than fried clams. Gave up eating mussels after the tainted mussel scare... a couple of elderly people died and some people suffered seriuos early dimentia, ie, memory loss. Of course, the time is nearing when neither will be of consequence for me and I'll be back at Cheers Tavern fer a BIG feed. I think it's on... oh... you know... the street with the fire department on it... down near Rinzler's Meat Market... wait... yeah... in back of Rinzler's somewhere. Oh crap! I was right close today and forgot to go to Rinzler's for carrots and onions on sale. No... no... that was last week. Hmmmmm. I must check the fridge and see if I went to Rinzler's and got carrots and onions last week. And then to Sobeys and get some mussels.

At least a couple of pulled pork sandwiches - I'm talking about a pork shoulder that has been slow smoked over a hickory and apple wood fire for about twelve hours. Then it is hand pulled - as with two forks - none of that chopped crap that many restaurants try to give ya. Pile the pork onto a sliced, hard-crusted Kaiser roll and top with a sweet/hot barbeque sauce.

On the side I'll have a "wilted lettuce" salad made with fresh bib lettuce mixed with some baby spinach. This should be made with apple-smoked bacon.

Finish this with some of Mom's Chocolate Marvel pie.

And follow it all with a snifter or two of the best Napoleon brandy.

What shellfish are you refering to - I don t believe all shellfish types have worms? When you eat many marinme molluscs - like clams, mussels and oysters you are eating the guts. But, mot so for Scallops (also a marine mollusc), lobsters and crab.

As to cheese, I am finding many of the better known brands of Cheddar getting increasingly "waxy", much like the processed stuff. One brand I avoid because of that is Cracker Barrell. Some of the smaller brands don't this problem, such as Armstrong and local brands.

Sorry, last guest was me.

Gnu, a few years ago a food inspection worker (now retired) showed me a sample of some of the small warm water scallops (large count per pound, southern scallops - I believe from Florida) under a microscope. There were small translucent worms in the meat. He said "you don't see '2m, but they are in most of those cheaper southern scallops - and we don't find them in the cold water Atlantic sea scallops up here" That was enough for me - it turns my stomach each time I see them in the store.

Agreed, Ed. I gave up buying "fresh" scallops for that reason and especially when they hit $14 a pound! Same deal with fresh lobster. Fresh at Sobeys means up to 4 days after delivery. I require any cooked bugs (Mum must have them bought cooked) to be two days max and, even then, I seldom buy them. I wants em cooked same day. I used to be able to buy Northumberland Straight scallops at 10AM that were suckin salt water at 3AM... mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Gnu
With frozen scallops,I am more concerned about conditions before they reach the store, as to taste-quiality. Most inshore boats bring the shucked catch to the fish plant daily, where it is packaged and frozen (if not to be delivered fresh). It may then hang around a freezer for some time before you buy it. Taste quality deteriotates with age (as opposed to healty rrelated quality). The colder the better for retaining taste. Many Japanese fishing boats freeze to -40 to keep taste quality (in tuna, for example). *s to offshore boats, there is a long period before the scallops reach the fish plant. By the time it gets to your plate, much of the flavour is missing.
Your fish guy may be an up front guy. But, few so- called fresh scallops are thrown out, as profit margins are closely monitored. If they aren't sold quickly after they arrive, I suspect storage conditions are not condusive to retaining. The sea- state flavour.

Ed... Sobeys will tell you unless the guy really doesn't know (read, new guy). My fish guy at Sobeys tells me when things were delivered, where they came from, and can usually tell me fairly accurately when they were caught. "My guy" is the manager and he does the ordering. Each Sobeys manager does the ordering and fish, meat and produce managers also do most of the local sourcing. When my fish guy finds a deal on something and he knows it will sell, he orders a whack of it. He even tells me when stuff is coming on sale. Like jack smelts (round smelts).The scallop pieces are cull so ya gotta look em over fer size and note any freezer burn. Since Sobeys keeps a tight watch on temp (-19C maximum), I am confident of quality.

Oh, yeah. The lobster and clams are, fer me, best from Shediac Bay but I have told that story way too many times.

My reasoning is that it wouldn't spoil my next meal and for that matter, wouldn't it be ironic to find out I don't mind the stuff after all?

I have had some good frozen Bay of Fundy scallops, gnu- but I bought them directly from a Digby fish plant. I have found the grocery store stuff to be of uneven quality- as I suspect the quality varies as storage conditions varies (as does the age). I have had some fairly good Northumberland Strait scallops also. I find the Georges Bank offshore scallops to be of lesser flavour. IMO, the Calico and smaller southern scallops to be flavourless- maybe why they are battered and wrapped in bacon to add flavour.

I will try your Sobeys suggestion (if they don't have any additives). The last time I checked The grocery stores the fish guy couldn't tell me if the scallops sold as "fresh" were actually fresh (aka recently landed) or previously frozen.

Hard ta beat Bay of Fundy scallops. Matter of fact, I might change my mind on the lobster... well, gotta have at least one bug eh? Last winter, my Sobeys store had frozen "pieces" (Digby) for $5.99 a pound. I bought and cook a pack in marg with some canola oil fer ta get the heat up. Try it Ed. The result is a thick glaze and ya can get the scallops real brown without losin flavour. I went back and bought a few more... about 30 pounds.
