Whoa!  am I over matched. 

When I get around to it, I'll fire up a batch of Pasties Yooper Style.

I like Indian, but have never tried to make it.  SWMBO doesn't like spice too much.  I used to work next to a guy with Punjab family he gave me some kinda eggplant or polenta thing that was amazing.  I have to call him.

Smoke some of your peppers too.

You can make sort of Chipotle peppers that way.

Cant wait.

I think I ended up smoking about a 1/2 bushel of jalpenos this year and a few habaneros and poblanos as well.  More than a years supply.  Have a bunch of habaneros in the freezer as well.  I'll have to post the spicy pepper shrimp recipe we got from one of our Jamaican friends soon,  That stuff is off the wall in flavor and heat.

Does "upstate SC descended from Irish/Scott good ol' country grandma learned cooking" count as ethnic?

Im gonna say yes.

I guess all regional American cooking is influenced by immigrants one way or another.

I love Southern US cooking. The breakfasts are great.

I have been looking into the cooking of the Southern Appalachia. True hill billy cooking. 

There is a New Episode of Bizarre Foods where they cook and serve up possum and coon. I get a few possum and coon in the yard, skunk too.

Here is some Uzbek food.

We were planning a huge feast of the stans. Meaning food from countries that end in stan. Uzbekistan Afghanistan.

Well the feast got canceled but we did a little Uzbek thing ourselves.

Pictured is Uzbek Plov A mixture of rice, lamb, onions, spices, tomato, cinnamon sticks raisins and whole garlic.

A rule of Uzbek cooking is: Add a pound of onions for every pound of meat.

Also shown is Uzbek style sauteed pumpkin with yogurt and tomato sauce. Very similar to the Afghan pumpkin and meat sauce.

And then for special occasions there's BUREK.
This food section is funny. I could totally see us gathering around and destroying all these different dishes. Kinda like - oh yeah, try this! We'd be 300lbs, wearing mafia style sweatsuits because of the elastic waist. Guess it's a good thing we don't live near each other.
