Addiction and Begging....So I Aint Perfect - Does It Look Like Im Bovvered...

Ok......... I will admit, I have an addiction... and there is nuffin I can do about it...... and mores the point..... I dont want to, Im happy with me addiction, it does no harm to anyone..... so, if it aint a problem to anyone but me, then its harmless, right?.......

But, you see, the thing is, I have run out of the substance that makes me smile, that takes me high, that makes me soar to heights that only I can fully understand........ and only YOU me doodle maties can help me....... you are the only ones that I know will be able to provide me with the means to carry on with my habit.......

So....... this is where the begging bit comes in...... ya see, from a very abusive childhood and an incident in 1973 where begging got me nowhere, I swore that never again would I beg to anyone for anything in life........ but here I am.... having to beg, I can see no other path to help me with this addiction of mine......

Ya see, when we was in the states a couple of summers ago, I came across this stuff that I just loved....... it made my throat hot and my eyes roll with tears....... so I bought home 3 jars of it....... but now alas through my addiction and continual use, I find myself without so much as a single bit left....... Ive hunted everywhere in this country to find a replacement, but NUFFIN comes up to scratch, nuffin is a patch of the doodle stuff.......

So please....... please, Im begging one of you, all of you, anyone one you know of ......... could you please hunt your shops, your store cupboards, steal from your grandmas your parents your family, or even from your local grocery shop..........I dont care how you get it, but Im willing to pay huge dosh for.....

THIS............

It HAS to be this exact make, this flavour, this jar..... IT HAS TO BE the same.... Ive tried something similar, but its no use, it doesnt take me to that high of MMMMmmmm-ness.......that numb lip-ness....

Ya see, I sprinkle this when Im steaming salmon steaks, I strinkle this when Im steaming me parsnips lol....... I had to eat salmon last week, without me sprinkling of this substance....... and I ended up giving it to the cats.......

So, please if anyone out there could take the time and effort to track down the culprit and be kind enough to post a jar or two to me...... I would of course pay all buying and posting costs incurred....... BUT I CANT LIVE without this in me life........ and Im tried all alternatives that we have here.......

So......... short and sweet........ not me usual run of the mill Twaddle....... but a begging post..... can you see me on me knees? no? well thats cos I aint lol......

Go forth and do your best...... Im counting on ya..... and that should be an honour cos I usually only ever count on meself........ so you can see how hard it has been for me to beg........

ok, enough begging Twaddle for a Monday........ I have another post half written but it keeps bringing me to tears, so it might be a few days late, and it was something that I so wanted to post yesterday..... life aye ;) - x

Mel,
Crushed red pepper is also called Cayenne Pepper. It is used alot around this part of the country, esp. in Louisianna cajun cooking. You may have better luck looking for it caled that. I use McKormicks (sp). I don't know if you will like that brand, though.

susan said...

Well, now that I go looking it up. There are several differnt kinds of red peppers that are basically the same, but can vary in degree of hotness. Cayenne is one of the hotter ones, so if you use it, you may try using a little less than what you are used to, in order to test it out. I use it pretty generously, but also I am used to all kinds of hot stuff. Tabasco sauce doesn't even phase me anymore. It just tastes like vinegary tomato sauce with a little zest, so maybe I am not the one to judge. (By the way, if anyone who reads this has never used Tabasco, don't think of it as mild, take caution, to the newbie, it only takes a couple drops to go along way. I don't want to be responsible for anyone hurting themselves.)
Mel, if and when I ever get your care package together, I am sending you Tobasco sauce. I grew up on the stuff.

Queenie said...

~(((((((((Susan))))))))~ hey you, I have cayenne pepper and crushed chilli peppers and about 5 other pepper spices, we also have tabasco sauce and some little jars of sauces that well makes ya bum sore once its gone through ya lol.......

I also bought something very similair to the jar of spices that I took a photo of...... BUT.... they just aint the same........ these are little flakes and looks like seeds mixed in..... I have tried the cayennes and others but they aint no patch on the jars from doodleland....... so I can settle for nuffin unless its the EXACT JAR as the photo.......

Fanks for all the tips though, we are quite a spicey eating family...... but, even out jars of crushed peppers just aint the same.......

So I cant swap them for anything else, it HAS to be the exact same jar.....no substitute will do LOL.... or I will get a right proper monk-on......... xxxxxx

~(((((Queenie)))))~ I thinks my trouble is that is a doodle make, and Ive tried the similar ones here, but they aint the same :(..... but fingers eyes and legs crossed that ya chefie boy might find some......... I even tried waitrose LOL .... xxxxx

~(((((((((((Ciara slagbag))))))))~ it was in that big shop in Wisconstance that I went with Wendy and Michael, actually eddie bought it cos I used Wendy's jar when I made dinner one night.... so he bought a jar when we was getting the groceries...... I think the shop was called 'Viking Village' or something like that lol
It HAS to be the same make though LOL

on the side it says...... Dist: By/Por Han-Dee Pak, Inc, Cockeysville, MD 21030-0448 - packed in USA/Envasado En EE UU...... but that might as well me in chinese LMFAO....... xxxxxxx

green libertarian said...

Toadman's right, it's in all the stores around here. I just bought some Oregano of the same brand at the Dollar store, they prolly have the red peppers too (I like it on Pizza too, but I get that from the pizza joint). If Toadman doesn't come thru, very unlikely, but if, lemme know.

buffalodickdy said...

Red pepper flakes? How much do you want? This is what goes on everybodys pizza over here. The bottle you displayed is sold here for a dollar everywhere...
