Hot Damn! Real (fake) Spaghetti!
I was smart enough to rent a place over a Polish Bar in Hamtramck Michigan.
Growing up Irish Catholic I ever had Polish food.
Every night I'd sneak down to see if there were ant leftovers: always was.
I ate things I had never heard of: Duck's blood soup, Galumpkis, Pierogis, etc.
I gained 5 pounds in 2 months!
Worked as a part time cab driver, you would be surprised at the amount of food left in cabs. Not to mention the drunks that offer to buy you something to eat if you will wait for them at a carry out restaurant. Didn’t gain much weight, however, between the instant noodles and the cab driving food train, I did all right. ;-)
