    That's the same as Marmite here. It's great stuff but the secret is to spread it as thinly as possible on toast. Otherwise it's too strong.

     

    Pretty sure there's no food product with "mite" in it's name anywhere in North America. Why is that?

    Sounds weird but I'd give it a try. In fact, I will try it the next time I have a burger. Sometimes weird mixtures are a revelation.

    With your new and improved palate ..... who knows what's possible 😎

    Put the cooker on 'soup' and it pressured right up.

    One hour ?  I lost track of time.

    Now strained and a beautiful color from carrots and onion skins and baked bones.

    and

    Lawd have mercy !

     

    It.

    Is.

    SO.

    Friggin'.

    GOOD.

     

    I am going to use the broth to melt down an onion and maybe a potato for dinner. 

    That is if there is any left.  😋

    No issues???

    Pineapple is the third greatest food given to us by the gods...it goes Vegemite, beetroot, pineapple, mango, bacon then passionfruit..... 

     

    There is no burger on earth worth eating that doesn't include beetroot, pineapple, bacon and egg.

    Not sure about the beets on a hamburger? Never heard of that one. I suppose you could put pretty much anything on a burger and it would taste great :)

    The only thing I've changed is I'm now willing to eat bacon and onion pizzas too instead of pepperoni and pineapple only 😄😄

    MUST be real bacon though, not those bacon bits. I don't even know if those are made from bacon. Sure don't taste like it.

    I'm good with pineapple on Pizza too. That ingredient is either a love it or hate it one - no middle ground there!

    Has anyone else ever wondered if Toronto is in the comp as compensation to Canada for the hockey take over OR if they even realise they aren't the worst team in the 2019 comp.

    I'm not sure. Have never looked into that but it's gotta be tough for Toronto because they have to pay their players in US dollars while their income is in Canadian dollars. There's a 30-32% differential right there (and NOT in Toronto's favour). I'm guessing there must be some sort of compensation for that within the league? How else could they compete financially because in years like this one, you can shoot a cannon off in their ballpark without fear of hitting anyone. I know the revenue is mostly from broadcast and advertising revenue but still, netting $3.42 per game at the gate can't happen for long 😆 

     

    Mind you, I'm sure it's the same thing in the NHL too yet Toronto is one of the top teams in terms of total annual revenue generated and end up paying more than most into the NHL comp. fund! Perfect illustration of just how fanatical the hockey fans are here. The team hasn't won the Stanley Cup since 1967 yet they are always in the top three revenue generation teams lol.

     

    That differential in currency must be one of the prime reasons that any major North American Sport does NOT want to consider Canada for league expansion. In the Toronto area, there has been speculation for decades now that there needs to be a 2nd NHL team in this market - maybe in Hamilton? The Greater Toronto Area (which includes Hamilton) could easily support 2 teams financially yet Bettmen (Commissioner of the NHL) has scuttled that idea every time. Yet, the NHL went to Arizona who's fan draw at the gate is always in the bottom 3 of the league. I can get a ticket for a game there for under $20.00. In Toronto, you are looking at $300.00 - $400.00  per ticket for just average seats, if you can get them! The Toronto arena is sold out for virtually every game - even at those prices. It's nuts! So, there must be other reasons I'm not aware of as to why they wouldn't put another team in here. Maybe they look at the New York experiment. Rangers do fantastic yet the expansion team Islanders barely scrape by in attendance anyway. Bottom of the league in recent years.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
