    We can fight about who gets the name first.
    Or we could get twins and have Stinkt Tofu 1 and 2. :

    You lost a dog yesterday so name your next Stinky. After my two old dog beasts pass I'm not getting another. I've had at least two dogs at a time since the 80s and I need a break.

    I might get a bird. I had a Cockatiel named Baretta for 15 years and I was crazy about that bird. Baretta died suddenly and without cause or warning but I don't know how old he was when I adopted him so it may have been from old age.

    Well... he might have been a she. You never know with birds but in my mind I always imagined him to be a boy.

    I'm also partial to the names Pinky Toscadero and Brandy Leavenworth.
    Come to think of it Grey Goose has promise too.

    You know what? My maternal Step-Grandpa always called me "Goose" when I was a kid. I don't know why.

    But I remember he was always yelling at me, "Hey GOOSE... stop that!" and "Whatcha doin' now... GOOSE?"

    He sure was a character. His breath always smelled like cigar smoke and scotch. But I sure did love him. RIP. icon_biggrin.gif

    OMG I knew Pinky Tuscadero rang a bell! She was Fonzie's girlfriend and did that weird finger snapping thing. icon_lol.gif

    It's no wonder at all. But we sure have hijacked this thread.
    Bad Peggy and Potsie.

    Thanks so much Stella, after google imaging the noodle cake I came across this picture which is incredibly similiar to what I ate. Same style, lots of liquid but not a soup. I've circled in red the "cakes" that look exactly what I ate. Is this the same Noodle cake that you spoke of, or is this called something different? It nearly looks like bread to me, but was not at all textured like bread. Thanks again for the feed back, I look forward to hearing your reply

    Hello HumbleThreeHundredandEight,

    Looking at the photo, this dish looks mainly like its all vegetarian... except for the piece in the upper right side that looks like pork (but might be tofu to look like meat). There are different different types of tofu which are made to look like different meats and with various textures (I forget the exact name???). Second, the circled piece looks like golden brown fried tofu to me and cut into triangular wedges.

    Regarding the Noodle Cake- There is a dish called birds nest (shape) in which potatoes are formed in a shape of a birds nest and cooked in oil and comes out crisp.... There is also the method of taking some dried rice noodles and putting it in hot oil and it expands and is hard. Or perhaps some other type of noodles are fried.... That is, all the above will create a noodle like cake and also absorb the liquid in the bowl slowly... retaining the noodle cake crispiness.

    Signed,

    Skipper/Sy

    How about Dinky Di, which is Aussie slang for 'the real thing'?

    Ms. LP,
    If you ever run across a book explaining the reasonings behind words in Aussie slang, let me know. I have no clue how Dinky Di can be "the real thing" since I have no clue where it comes from. I love how Aussies talk but, but for the life of me, have no clue what they are saying....yourself not included. icon_lol.gif

    I'll be on the lookout for you, Celticevergreen. Such books do exist.
