2. When drinking a diet soda while eating a candy bar, the calories in the candy bar are canceled by the diet soda.

3. When you eat with someone else, calories don't count as long as you don't eat more than they do.

4. Foods used for medicinal purposes never count. Example: hot chocolate, brandy, toast and Sara Lee cheesecake.

5. If you fatten up everyone else around you, then you look thinner.

6. Movie-related foods do not have calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

Example: Milk Duds, buttered popcorn, Junior Mints and Tootsie Rolls.

7. Cookie pieces contain no calories, because of the process of breaking the cookie causes calorie leakage.

8. If you are in the process of preparing something, foods licked off knives and spoons have no calories.

* If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

* Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices & strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

* The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.

The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

* Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

* If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge.

* Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

* If I eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate, is that a balanced diet?

Don't they actually counteract each other?

* Money talks. Chocolate sings.

* Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

* Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

* A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?

* If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

- Food Joke: Kitchen Wisdom (?) :


* A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen, and this kitchen is delirious!

* No husband has ever been shot while doing dishes.

* A husband is someone who takes out the trash and gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house.

* If we are what we eat, then I'm easy, fast, and cheap.

* Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.

* Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.

* Help keep the kitchen clean-eat out!

* Housework done properly, can kill you.

* Countless numbers of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives.

* My next house will have no kitchen---just vending machines

Flauzen refers to a dish from Saarland, Germany. It is a salad made of Tripe (tripe salad).

Flauzen is made by cooking the Tripe for about 2 hours until it is tender then cut into thin strips. The thin strips of cooked Tripe is then placed in a bowl or a glass , plenty of white onions are added, then a sauce made from a mixture of oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and bay leaves is poured into the glass. This mixture is then placed into the cold cellar or in a refrigerator for three (3) days.

Flauzen is best when served with dark bread with butter. It goes well with Saarland beer or an Alsatian Edelwicker

Panzen also known as Kutteln is the German word for tripe.

Fiske Torvet means "Fish Market" in Norwegian where fresh fish and seafoods are sold straight from the seas and fjords of Norway.

In the Philippines, we buy fresh fish and seafoods from so called "Palengke" or "Wet Market" where most fresh produced can be brought. Nowadays, fresh fishes and seafoods are also available in big Supermarkets.

Fenalår refers to the cured leg of mutton which is one of Norway's unique national speciality.

Mutton is the trademark of Norway's cooking when it comes to meat dishes, although, other meat from the games are also used as a food source. Elk is mostly used in most inland areas and reindeer meat is the specialty of the north of the country.
