And try it I did, and it was some powerful good eating. The brand names may mean little to folks in other geographical locations, but I poured an 11 oz. package of Stouffer's creamed chipped beef over half a package (4 pieces) of Pepperidge Farms Texas Toast garlic bread. uuMMMMM-Um!

I loathe and despise grits. nothing says basic training louder than the enforced consumption of grits (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little)

Chipped means sliced, biscuits means scones, cilantro means coriander, but only if it's the green bits, if it's the seeds it's called coriander -anything else I should know before going on holiday to northern California?

If we're talking food, the chips/crisps thing is important.

Also the difference in pronounciation of "herbs", "oregano" and "basil".

I've lived in Denmark for four years, where they don't know what long pieces of potato deep fried until crisp round the edges and covered in salt and vinegar are called, and I still get excited and then immediately disappointed when my wife says to me, "Do you want some chips?"

Ah, I didn't know it was the same in Denmark. I remember being in Canada and getting caught out by the crisps/chips issue in a Subway - I was equally disappointed

French fries means pommes frites, or maybe you already know that? Oh, and french fries are served with ketchup. No beer anywhere that does not have a license to sell it.

Grits?

How about hominy grits?

Mom would put a big dab of butter in the middle, and it would melt into a delicious pool.

Also a slice of cheese on top of the grits or hominy, and then of course sides of eggs, bacon, sausage, and buttered toast. We didn't really have biscuits then.

When I went into the Army, they might have given me SOS, but never any of the above. You gotta make do with what you got.

grits are grits no matter what. I think what you got largely depended on where you went to basic. I was at Ft. Jackson

Coriander (ground or not) and cumin are entirely different spices aren't they? I certainly make recipes that call for both cumin and ground coriander, which wouldn't make sense if they were the same thing.
