Can someone tell me the difference between the types of ham sold in a typical supermarket?
I tried googling but all i got was sites talking about fancy, whole ham, and not the sliced type in supermarkets.
Like what is the difference between double smoked ham, "premium leg ham", champagne ham, etc?
What is the difference between the ham that comes in small boxes and the ham at the deli? I noticed boxed ham is much more expensive than deli ham for some reason.

Restaurant stories from hell thread time!
So last weekend I was with my bf and we got hungry in the wee hours of the morning (bout 5am) and the only place open was Ihop.
I thought he had money on his debit card and told him to meet me there. Turned out he only had 16 dollars and I wanted food that cost more than that (who knew Ihop was that expensive or maybe its just here?).
I politely explained to the waitress that my debit card gets an automatic deposit every morning at 7am and she could charge my card then or I could write a check. She said she got off shift at 6:30am and could not do that.
The only people in there besides us were cops. A cop comes over, in full uniform and says, sir, if you would like to pull that sort of game here, we have a place for you at the local precinct. I had ordered coffee, my bf suggested we just order something really cheap off the menu and that we should stay but I was having none of it.
I told my bf we were leaving, got the fuck up and left, waited an hour till the grocery store opened and made slow-cooked eggs with homemade rendered beef fat, cream, and tarragon (cook the eggs at the lowest heat for an hour). I made toast and heated up some chocolate croissants I bought at the grocery store and fried up some bacon.
My bf slept while I cooked, I gently woke him up to the smell of a freshly cooked breakfast served in bed to his delight. I added some artisanal camembert to the eggs until it melted and it tasted fantastic.
FUCK THAT POLICE DUDE, he clearly had nothing better to do than harass two hungover guys who wanted steak and eggs. I doubt that policeman has ever had a breakfast so delicious.

Hello there /CK/. This is ????????.
So I got some fresh pumpkin the other day, and I decided to make some homemade pumpkin pie. I have the general plan already imagine, however I'm having issues about the pumpkin puree.
Most of the youtube videos regarding that, use commertial available puree, or make it in the oven. Since my oven is somehow unreliable/unstable at the time being, I was wondering if I can prepare my pumpkin puree in a pot, pretty much like a potato puree.
If yes, how should it be? With or without water?
Also, do you have anny suggestions for my pumpkin pie?

MOST EXPENSIVE RESTAURANT 2013: KITCHO, KYOTO EATERY, CHOSEN BY DAILY MEAL
Japan, France and Switzerland are home to some of the world’s most expensive restaurants in the world, with a meal at the most lavish eatery estimated to set diners back $600 a person.
According to The Daily Meal, the most exorbitant meal in the world is served at Kitcho restaurant in Kyoto, Japan, which British chef Heston Blumenthal calls "extraordinary."
Described as the high temple of kaiseki -- a ceremonious multi-course affair that originated with Japanese tea ceremonies -- diners at Kitcho can expect to shell out about $600 USD for dinner and drinks.
Rounding out the next most expensive restaurants is Le Meurice in Paris, where a meal will cost about $509 USD. But with a gold-gilded dining room inspired by Versailles, a dining experience at the mythical restaurant makes guests feel like royalty, suggests The Daily Meal.
Coming in at No. 3 is Masa in New York, where a tasting menu at the Japanese, three Michelin-starred eatery will run about $450 USD.
The list includes three restaurants in Japan, two restaurants in France and two in Switzerland.

I have no idea if this is the best place to ask this, but I need to know everything you guys know about Polynesian Agriculture.
Like, specifically "island agriculture" and maybe even herding/ranching if they've ever done it.
I need it for fictional writing purposes and the only thing I vaguely know about them is they grow yams, bananas, bread fruit, and they have pigs???
