Döner Kebab or "Döner-plate"?
Doner kebab. That said, I have never had the German version, I've only eaten it in Istanbul. I hear the German version has taken on a life of its own.
White or blue shirt with a suit?
Shirt with a tie on a suit or (thin) turtleneck-pullover on a suit?
First (although, while I applaud the second option, it requires a very skilled execution to work)
Dress boots or dress shoes with heavyweight winter suit?
Matjes-herring with "potatoes in the skin" or cream herring-salad with boiled potatoes?
I'll only answer this herring "this or that," if you promise not to post any other version of a herring "this or that" for 3 months - deal?
While we wait....
Swimming pools or natural bodies of water?
Creamed herring with boiled potatoes.
It sounded so good that I prepared it for supper tonight. Took a bottle of herring in wine sauce, drained it, added a pound of thinly sliced fresh onion, some minced fresh dill, a pint of sour cream, and served it with buttered, parslied fingeriling potatoes, and three bean salad which I put up last August.
Can never have too much herring!
Natural body of water.
Hal Le Roy or Al "Rubber Legs" Norman?
Dancing by Le Roy!
Guacamole dip (Avocados)
Lumpy or smooth texture?
I like mine with lumps.
Chicken in aspic or Perfection Salad?
Chicken aspic! Yum!
Chicken livers or calfs liver?
Pork liver paté or cold toungue?
Pork liver pate
Jambalaya or Cassoulet?
I skipped breakfast this morning. Now I am hungry.
Farina or Corn Meal Mush?
Corn meal for me
Mixed fruit flambe or cherries jubilee?
Enough of food!
Ouch! My diet!
Is this the 17th of April or the 106th of January?
Finally, one I know:
Staying with desserts on fire:
Cherries Jubilee or Bananas Forest?
Do you mean "Bananas Foster"?
That wonderful delicacy which caps a brunch at Brennan's?
I know what it means to miss New Orleans...
Yes, I am a horrible speller, but I think I got "spell-checked" into that error.
I love that you still have a place that serves it. I haven't seen it on a menu since the '90s in an old restaurant in Boston.
I believe you are up for the next This or That.
The dish was invented at Brennans by their famous Chef Paul in 1950 or 1951. It has long been the specialty of the house. "Breakfast at Brennan's" is as much a staple of the New Orleans tourist experience as Poulet Bon Femme at Antoines, or vomiting in the gutter on Bourbon Street.
Oh, and for This or That:
Is this the 17th of April or the 107th of January?
