Get ahead of the curve: it's Uyghur food. (Pronounced "WEE-grr".)

I didn't know they could be. Thanks, Internet.
"We visited convenience-store rivals Wawa and Sheetz to see which does it better — and the winner is clear"
Yeah, it's a Jersey thing--you wouldn't understand.
My mom used to say if you wait long enough, almost everything comes back.
I haven't made it, but it certainly sounds good.
With two sticks of butter, two cups of half-and-half and five different cheeses, it is over-the-top good. The crunchy breadcrumb topping is the perfect contrast to the underlying cheesy, gooey goodness.
Contains this nugget:
As we finish our meal at I Sodi, Humm tells me that he's got a passion for food, a passion for cooking, and I barely pay attention to this, at first, because it seems like a generic thing to say. Then he puts down a glass of wine and explains that when he uses the word passion, he's referring to a German word: leidenschaft. Break down the word and it means something more along the lines of "enjoy suffering."
"That would be my translation," he says. "Passion is not something pleasant. Are you willing to suffer for this? That's when you have passion. Otherwise, it's a hobby. Passion is not a hobby."
A lot more on the etymology of "leidenschaft" here.
So a new fav drink in my household is "Nature's Twist" sugarless orange. At Raleigh Harris Teeters it currently goes for $2.99 for 12 cans. That's the good news. The bad news is that, at least as a couple years ago, it was only available in the Carolinas. (Amazon has one seller, but it's way more expensive there.)
For those in the Raleigh-Durham area wanting to put a little South in your mouth.
"In the Midwest, you won't find it any other way," he says. "But I feel like in this area, not everyone knows what poutine is, so I can kind of get away with what I want. Honestly, if we're going traditional, there shouldn't be sausage gravy, either. It should be chicken stock gravy. Everything's going to be a little twist."
I didn't know about sorrel before, but now I do.
If it weren't for them being relatively caloric and having oxalates, I'd certainly eat a lot more.
