I just discovered which stone represents 100 years? It's a frickin' 10 carat diamond! No wonder nobody makes it that far as a wedded couple. When it comes to podcasts, 100 is a little easier. As so here we are... 100. Time to simply reflect.Phil and Barbara walk their way through the long list and remember, as best they can, what they enjoyed most. They take a quick look at some of our favourite artwork. We think episodes 7, 8, 32, 40, 49, 72, 82 and 89. That's not such a great thing on an audio format but you can easily go back through Spotify and take a look yourself.As for YOUR favourite episode... here's the list...1 - What is the Gdayall podcast all about?2 - Home Town Favourites with Donald Betts Jr.3 - BBQ with Mitch Benjamin from Meat Mitch4 - School Lunch Box with Dolores Harper5 - Featured Food with Penny Bunz6 - Greasy Food with John Pumilia7 - Halloween with Shawn Yates8 - Cajun versus Creole with Phil Tripp9 - Thanksgiving preparation with David Terpin10 - ‘Potpourri’ a discussion about all things cooking11 - Thanksgiving with Theresa Ingram12 - Pies, pies and more pies13 - Cookbooks14 - Cookies & Christmas15 - Celebrations and Jubilations16 - Cal Mex with Richie Pinard17 - The Culture of Coffee18 - Corn Chips19 - Superbowl Stuff20 - Pizza Pizza21 - Soda, Pop and Fizz22 - Cake with Penny Bunz23 - Breakfast Cereal24 - St Patrick’s Day25 - Potato Chips26 - Hot Sauce27 - Easter28 - PB&J29 - In-Store Experience30 - Waffles & Pancakes31 - Odd Ball Food Combo’s32 - Ice Cream & Milk Shakes33 - Chocolate34 - Fusion & Innovation35 - Hamburgers36 - Donuts and Doughnuts37 - Jerky and Cowboy Food38 - Herbs & Spices39 - Italian pastries and cookies40 - In-Store Experience #241 - Casserole and 50’s cooking42 - Copycat Recipes43 - Retro Candy44 - Pickle Show45 - Delis - The Cultural Melting Pot46 - Jingles & Taglines47 - Hawaiian Food48 - Coffee Cake49 - Sopranos Cooking50 - Tea51 - Listener Questions52 - Potluck53 - Southern Cooking54 - Popcorn55 - Chain Restaurants56 - Happy Accidents57 - Halloween58 - Condiments59 - Snack Cakes60 - Potent Potables61 - Thanksgiving Appetisers62 - Christmas Gift Ideas63 - Travel Foods64 - Entertaining with the Sopranos65 - Summer Traditions66 - 69 - Best of 2021 #1, #2, #3 & #470 - Peanut Butter & Co.71 - 15 Minute Meals72 - Tailgating with John Madden73 - Ohhh… Canada with Dina Charpentier74 - Last Meals75 - Aeroplane Food76 - Spanner in the Works77 - Cheap Eats78 - First Ladies79 - The Corner Store80 - Mall Food81 - Coupons82 - Gifts from the Kitchen83 - Slow Cooking84 - In-Store Experience #385 - Food Trucks86 - A Kid in America87 - Food in Movies88 - Food in TV89 - Phil’s Trip90 - Platinum Jubilee91 - Soup92 - 4th July93 - From Hate to Rate94 - Prison Food95 - Barbara in the USA96 - Hot Dogs97 - Garlic98 - Dentists Delight99 - Salad Smorgasbord100 - The Ton Happy Birthday George

As a young Australian, you might have grown up with iceberg lettuce. That was nucleus of a salad. Then came all this exotic sort of leaf. We evolved to deal with that. But take a trip to the USA and order a salad and... BOINGA! Could you please repeat that? They have a veritable blitzkrieg level of salad types and then you have to choose the dressing! It's a fair dinkum mind blower if you're not ready for it. We work our way through 24 different salads and dressings. Then we get onto salads that might as well be a desert. Bring on the marshies I say.When it comes to today's sign-off... feel free to jump on the conga line and join in.

Lollipops, Cotton Candy, Toffee Apples and Hard Candy... we love 'em. But, do they love us? Hard candies have been around for about 130 years. The industry continues to be one of the great innovators. These attractive rainbow coloured delights have us queuing up for more. Don't be surprised if at the end of the line is a person in a white coat saying "open wide". That person would be your dentist, benefiting from your candy infused cavities. As it happens, dentists and candy have a relationship that goes beyond just filling holes in teeth. So three advisories:1. Enjoy them.2. Flush the sugar out of your mouth as soon as possible.3. Pay attention as we list the other nasties that can also do damage.

Garlic... the one thing that is used in virtually every cuisine in the world. Phil and Barbara talk about how it can be simply used to enhance your dish. We cover it's many health benefits but most importantly we talk about a whole series of specific recipes that use it. Also for those paying attention at the end Fuego is Spanish for fire.

If you have not travelled to the USA and your Hot Dog experience has been confined to the Australian variety, then you have been missing out.We cover the story of an entrepreneurial immigrant called Charles Feltman. Then, not surprisingly, their are regional varieties and we pick through some of the more interesting ones. Baseball has it's deep rooted connection to baseball and the ballparks also have a different approach. The 10 best are ranked and reviewed. We round out the pod with the story of the Costco Hot Dog and then look at the the ultimate guide. These ultimates are as varied as the flavours and toppings that you get at a pizza shop.The interrupted contest that Phil mentioned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8XLgbkUE64

Barbara in the USA
Six episodes ago we had Phil's Trip, this time it was Barbara's turn. A world wind trip see's us get patched into her old bedroom for this week's pod. So just what might be the observations of a Californian who has not been home for 5 years. She has taken the responsibility of research seriously and has a lot to say. We also hear from a couple of co-workers who pop up (in both countries). Plenty of laughs, a few 'special guest' food reviews as well as the regular segments. Also big announcement toward the end.

Whether you're inside for a weekend away or you're a bit of a lifer, chances are you're not going to like what the guard serves you. We discovered that some of those with a little extra time are quite inventive. First is the desire to compliment mundane meals with their own snacks. Second is the thought given to ingredients. Thirdly are the utensils and implements to make a 'cell' oven or cooktop. With all that in mind we take you through some recipes that you'll definitely recognise. These might be some fun kitchen experiments to do yourself for a bit of fun on a rainy weekend. Maybe give the nutraloaf a miss!All credit to these ingenious individuals who look beyond their situation with some hope and optimism.

From Hate to Rate
This could be the healthiest pod we have ever produced. Remember all those things that were once bad for you? Remember all those things that you hated as a kid? Remember a time before you had even heard of Superfoods? They all bob their heads up this week for a chance to be acknowledged as the 'good guys' in your diet.Phil and Barbara line up a long list and go head-to-head with the proclamation 'one man's meat is another man's poison'. In case you in the mood for a smoothie, to wrap up the good stuff we fly through the most nutrient dense vegetables. See... that didn't hurt a bit.

How could we possibly be nearly 100 episodes old and never done a specific 4th July show? Phil opens his wallet and decides that our favourite president TJ, needs a new nickname. We motor down list of essential 4th foods that will help make you a star. Barbara tells you what not to serve. We reveal the secret to winning a hot dog eating contest. Then we do the numbers on a few food facts. And in preparation for another extravaganza inside and outside the shop this Saturday we review what's available from the Maple Leaf Meat Van. Yummo!Of course it wouldn't be a show without Phil regaling us with a childhood story. This time it's 'fun with fireworks'.

Just like primordial soup requiring a perfect mixture of organic molecules from which life on earth could originate... regular soup is no different.It's easy, it's delicious and it's sort of magical how well it fixes you up. So we talk about its restorative power, some not so obvious varieties and then roll into a few pop culture references. If you're hankering for a special type we can tell you where to get it. We round out with a nice little theatre piece and have a laugh about a couple of recent occurrences in the We Got Goss segment.

It's time to put on your finest and sit up straight at the table because we'll be eating something special tonight and the Queen is coming over.To help celebrate Her Royal Highness's Platinum Jubilee we did a spot of research into the particular commemorative meals that one might expect to part-take in. Such delights as jubilee chicken, sausage rolls, duck eggs, Craster kipper pate, Victoria sponge and other mouth-watering delights. Of course all knocked back with a swizzle of Coronation Fizz. Sounds marvellous. Along the way we discover what so of the more well to do institutions prepared and look at Jubilee menus from the last 70 years. Bless her and may God Save the Queen.

Food in TV
Last week the silver screen, this week the tube! Yes it's DaveTV as we welcome back David Terpin for our small screen extravaganza. Barbara and David chronicle the shows they grew up watching. From the very start the European influence was apparent as Americans were educated about alternate cuisines. In 1993 something significant on American TV happened and BAM! it was never the same.We flag a few Pop Culture influences and then it's time to listen and remember. We have cut up a number of famous scene from TV and included Movies which we could fit into last week's pod. Caution: a few swear words amongst the clips.Finally, two great food songs... well one great food song and one which must be the most decadent food fight ever.

Food in Movies
A blockbuster episode which is fitting given the subject... Movies. An old food loving friend drops in as we wander down the Boulevard of Stars to look at Movies that have been focussed around food.Starting in 1971 and moving chronologically through the years to 2016. While movies is the focus, we also include animations, documentaries and wine. Plenty of variety and passion for food on the big screen.All titles and years are verbalised so you can watch trailers and hit the subscription channel if you have missed any of these classics.

A Kid in America
If you're old enough, you might be able to cast your mind back to January 1981. That month, Kim Wilde released her classic "Kids in America". It topped charts globally.Today we're stealing the title and serving up our own 'A Kid in America'. It's bound to be even more popular than the song. We all know that Phil and Barbara grew up on the East & West Coast, but we have fast forwarded to the modern era. Today we talk with Kaeli. She is a USAFoods stalwart and spent her first 14 years in the US. Kaeli provides an updated perspective of a youth spent Down South and also the transition to Australia. Find out just what life is like for the younger brigade and discover if you have received one of her hand written notes she slips into online packages.

Here we are with a curve ball episode. And to do it justice we have recruited one of the young ones who has had experience with food trucks. Yes, we have all had our late night exposure to the kabab shop, but these things are a a bit of a phenomenon. And while the vans are pretty cutesy, the food is definitely varied and yummo. We have located where these things gather so all you have to do is circle the wagons. We also have plenty of fun mucking around with our other regular segments along the way.

In-Store Experience #3 - 25th Anniversary Edition
USAFoods celebrated 25 years in business and the pod went along to capture it. A little different to our typical show as this one captures the excitement and in-store energy as we talk to customers from all walks as they pass-by the microphone. It was a pretty frenzied environment with heaps going on. There were lots of people saying hello to friends and relatives in the US. Such a lovely time with customers and a proud day for the business. Thanks to everyone for their patronage over the years.

Grab your crock pot and get ready as we look at the Most Popular, Surprising, Favourites and some Rules and Tips.The fun facts are quick and to the point but Barbara does take time to discuss how long you should cook a slow cook recipe. Then, the guys work through a long list of things you should never put into a slow cooker. The big question... what is the one thing that Phil completely forgot about?Don't forget - see you in store next Saturday 30th April.

Gifts from the Kitchen
DECLARATION: This episode's content was a partisan decision made equally by a man and woman. We make that declaration that because gifts from (and for) the kitchen can be misinterpreted. You need to make your own decision on how such gifts may be received.Phil and Barbara love being in the kitchen and playing with gadget and utensils. The guys just decided to create a very long list of goodies and gifts that are super suitable for Mothers Day. As part of her extensive research, Barbara dragged herself in and out of all the best kitchen and cooking shops at the local super complex. So list carefully for the super affordable from kids, to the super expensive from husbands who have left it to the last minute.gulp!

...and he's back! Yes, not quite fighting fit, but back all the same. This week Phil and Barbara chat about an America only phenomenon - Coupons. While more recently you might have seen Extreme Couponers programs , they actually started more than a century ago. If you're a regular listener to the pod you might able to guess who that innovator was.Also up for discussion this week is:What do Coupons DoProblems with Coupons Types of CouponsWho Uses CouponsWhy don’t we have coupons here
