They do. We keep a few in the freezer at all times for those times when the kids can't decide on a lunch or when the wifey orders out chinese and kids scream like they are about to be tortured.

OK, let's see . . .

1.  Coke or Pepsi (or cans of whatever the soda machines in the cafeteria had in them).
2.  Candy bars
3.  Corn chips
4.  Potato chips
5.  Cookies

Since I played at school, we usually had to "sneak" the sodas, etc. into the classroom we played in; later on, we had to negotiate with the sponsor--the chemistry teacher allowed us to use his lab after school (with ALL THAT blackboard space!!!), and we were allowed to bring in food and drinks (after all, it WAS a chem lab!).

Well... Not much different from Kask's bitd, just not that far back.  Our group sometimes reached 12 or more including girlfriends, and hangers-on.  Everyone chipped in $5 or $10 for "party sack", so it belonged to everyone and no-one could harsh on it.  Everyone brought their own beer, if they drank (most did).  One of our group managed a Papa John's, so pizza was always provided.  One buddy would bring a backpack full of the cheap "Little Debby" knock-off snack cakes (the ones that are .25 a piece at most convenient stores) and sell them or offer them as bribes as the night wore on.  Occasionally someone would bring something more "exotic" to drink or...whatever.  We were all either finishing college or well into the job market, so we were used to maintaining cohesive thought despite...outside influences.  Played through two 1st edition campaigns for nearly five years, meeting twice a week (once each) simultaneously and loved every minute of it.  Never had any problems with anything.  Well, the barbarian who said "Hey guys, can I make some eggs" and made a 12 egg omelet, but...
Addenda:  His character was a Cavalier, the player was a barbarian, but loveable, lol.  Just lock the cupboard

Not that I don't love Tiramisu . . .  but what kind of gaming session are you running here?  :D   I make an awesome Tiramisu, if I do say so myself . . . but the final tab on one 9" x 9" pan is around $25 plus about an hour preparation time plus at least 6 hours (but more like overnight) in the Fridge to chill.  Add on to that the run around time I have to make going to the Italian Import store for real mascarpone and high quality Ladyfingers - I tend to just reserve it for birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions!

Inferior Tiramisu makes me feel very sad inside, so I will only make it or buy it if I know it will be excellent!

Someone must be eating it.  Now they have BBQ, hot and spicy, cheesy, bacon, and garlic flavored Spam.  Yick.  :?   But honestly, I would probably rather eat Spam than those little Vienna sausages that come in a can.  Before eating them you first have to fish them out of the meat-flavored gelatin and clean them off.  :x

Of course, I am a bit surprised no one from Australia has metioned Vegemite.  Tried it once............suffice to say that was enough for me for the rest of my life.  :wink:

Spam is good, fry it up with some onions and eat it as a sandwich, yum.

Haven't had the onther flavors, though think I may have tried the turkey one once.

Used to have it that way when I was a kid, didn't know any better. Thin slice, fry with onions, throw some pepper and cheese on them, mustard on the bread, make sandwiches out of them.  God knows how much fat/calories each of those sandwhiches contained, probably why I look the way I do now. I just know we thought they were yummy!  Haven't had one in about 30 years, so who knows if the Spam Sandwich will have stood the test of time? Maybe somethings are just meant to be left in the past    :D

1. Diet Mountain Dew. It keeps everyone going without the calories.
2. Pizza. Usually pepperoni and various toppings, but not sausage.  It gives one of the player's terrible gas...
3. Chips.  The kind varies, depending on what was on special or the fancy of the players.
4. Miscellaneous cookies.  Oreos and sometimes homemade, if the wife is in a good mood.
5. Beer.  It will usually result in a much shorter session.

Uhhh....nope.

Here's a link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegemite

If I didnt know what it was and had to take a guess what it was made from I would say:  Salt, vaseline, and malt liquor.

You know, if we made prisoners eat Vegemite and Spam three times a day, our recidivism rates would plummet. Of course, that's assuming that some bottom-feeder (Sorry, lawyer) didn't file suit and successfully establish that diet as "cruel and unusual punishment" and therefore unconstitutional.

That would not, however, stop Bush and Cheney from force-feeding it to suspected terrorists (Only vegemite to Muslims; even I don't advocate forcing prisoners to violate religious dietary dogma. Of course, nowhere in the Koran does it say it's okay to kill unbelievers... But that is another argument)

I imagine that even hard-core Al-Quaeda would be singing like canaries after a few meals of it. We all knew that Aussies and Kiwis were a bit "quirky"--perhaps vegemite as toddlers would havesome  bearing on that...

They really eat that willingly, not under duress?? Crikey!!

I ate some willingly this morning.... lovely stuff spread thick on fresh sourdough bread. It's not a snack food though... more a breakfast thing.

Snack foods here were potato chips, hot chips from the store wrapped in paper with vinegar, pizza, coke, and whatever else was handy.

Regards

Mike

btw, are ladyfingers the biscuits you use for tiramisu? a suggestion: next time you wanna a real tiramisu, go the the italian store and ask for "savoiardi" biscuits! ...trsut me! :wink:

Oh for shame!!

It's a national institution, and really IS good on toast or fresh bread. My daughter absolutely loves it. Bit of history - they actually ran a competition across the country to name it (way back when), with the daughter of the owner picking the name out of a hat. Can't be bad for about 70 years old.

And apparently it enhances your sporting prowess - good thing they aren't testing for it yet . :D

What I can't get over is using two different spreads at the one time: whoever thought of sticking peanut butter and jam (jelly) together in the first place  :roll:

Anyway back on topic:

2 foodgroups consumed at our gaming table:
Coke
Coffee

48 hour gaming sessions over the weekend BITD - absolutely buzzing.

Vegemite - huh - just an inferior Australian version of Marmite...   :wink:

Gaming snack foods? The basic rule in our group was; "It's got to to be non-greasy and non-drip." So no pizza, houmus, chips (french fries to you) etc...

So mostly crisps or doritos or toast and marmite. Drinks not on the table - that's how my copy of "Junta" turned into "Travel Junta" (the counter stick to the board since a large beer was spilt over it all). :evil:

BTW top sandwich filling: marmite, grated chedder cheese, grated carrot.  :D


Cheers!

In America, Savoiardi are known as "Ladyfingers".   :wink:   Same thing - trust me I wouldn't use anything else.  Only Savoiardi can absorb the espresso properly!  :D
