Sriracha sauce and mayo is an excellent combination.

That is all.

Goodnight.
Tried it today on sliced tomatoes. Awesome! Thanks.

Soy sauce and Miracle Whip on spring rolls is also an excellent combo.

More MW if you like sweet, more soy if you like salty…mess around with the proportions to dial it into your taste preference. If you have a good Asian market near by dark soy sauce I think tastes best but the cheap stuff in grocery stores is fine just saltier.

And if you have a good Asian market and you are willing to climb a little higher in the tree for better fruit, try the original Thai Sriracha sauce. The story I heard is a Vietnamese American businessman decided to knock it off and create the sauce in the green cap bottle most of us know as Sriracha. But the original born in Sriracha, Thailand is regarded to be far superior in taste. Taste both and decide for yourself.

I lived in Thailand for the better part of a year and ate very well.
No Cinnabon, though.

On the China history podcast by Lazlow Montgomery he has a whole episode on the Vietnamese Chinese siracha guy. It was pretty entertaining.

An indie filmmaker made a documentary about Sriracha some time back. I'll have to search it out. Probably an interesting story.
I like the Huy Fong mainstay, but IMO the original Thai is way better, especially on something like a burger.

(This is Mountaineer not Dualstow, but I must have hit a stray button. Never mind, I changed it back 😅 \DS)

How do you chili/garlic sauce lovers compare Sriracha and Gochujang and Sambal Oelek? Any special suggestions ( e.g. like Smithers’ Mayo and Sriracha combo)?

I tend to use Sambal Oelek more often than the others, not sure why. I like it to add some flavor and heat to my Sicilian spaghetti recipe (mushrooms, garlic, olive oil, butter over linguine).

Thought I had never heard of Sambal Oelek, and then smiled when I saw google’s image. I do the same thing as you- add it to pasta sauce and call it arabbiata .

Haha, nice! Did you eat some mushrooms? Or some other method? Dosage? Was it a meaningful experience?

I haven't done a proper psychedelic dose in awhile, but I occasionally microdose, e.g. 0.3g dried cubensis last Sunday.

Just curious, what purpose is there in doing this? FWIW, I have never experienced the results of drugs other than caffeine, alcohol, other food components, and medical products such as a dentist or anesthesiologist uses.

It turned out to be real meaningful. My father passed away late last year, and through the trip I was able to talk to him and see him again. That alone made it worth the psychedelic hangover the next day. Amazing stuff.

Oh, I forgot to answer your other questions.

My girlfriend and I ended up taking the trip together. We consumed it in tea form, which is my preferred method. Surprisingly pleasant tasting when combined with a traditional tea.

Not sure about dosage because the lady friend prepared it... it wasn't a low dose though that's for sure. ;D

I've been hearing about research into psilocybin for treating depression.

And other uses

I've mostly heard from a podcast I like -- The Tim Ferris Show

Indeed! The gf and I had this particular bag of shrooms in one of our dresser drawers for a while now. It was only because we watched that documentary How To Change Your Mind that we decided to do the trip the other night.

It may be a coincidence, but today has been one of the most productive and optimistic days I've had in a long while.

Excellent! For whatever the reason.

May this be a new beginning to a better state of mind for you

I don't think it is. I find it useful when I'm feeling stuck. Just the same patterns over and over again and I can't seem to improve things. Not much happens the day of, but over the next few days things spontaneously improve. Probably some form of neurogenesis going on or slight rewiring of your usual stimulus/response system. Suddenly you notice a mess you've been ignoring and you have the motivation to deal with it.

Yeah, psychedelics do indeed seem to be amazing.
