My grandparents made their own dough, and after it was fried it was
called "dough-gads". Never heard of it anywhere else.

Sounds good.....I'll have to try it. I have a dough machine that I used to
use to make my own bread. I haven't used it for several years now.....Maybe
I'll break it out and start using it again. As I remember, French bread was
the easiest to make.....It is just flour and water and yeast......There is
no fat in it.

I'll use my dough to get a new lens. Much better than frying it.

weg9 says: Well, I remember this East Indian guy that stayed at my house one
Summer. He would make little dough balls about 1 inch in diameter out of
bread dough, and deep fry them, and then roll them in powdered
sugar.....They were delicious. He also made this delicious spicy mixture of
hamburger meat, spinach and curry spices that he would roll up in
tortillas.....He called it, "Kema", but I later on found out that kema just
means "meat" in Indian, so I don't know if he was just kidding me, or
whether that was what they were really called......

It's not morality, it's making the idiots who smoke pay for the damage they
cause. The medical care for smokers for diseases that wouldn't have occurred
otherwise is incredibly expensive, and everyone else in the insurance pool
has to pay for it. So $20 a pack is still way too low.
