Didnt Go to the West Coast cos --- 5 years ago -

I hear today that the July 4th celebrations held at Feltwell have been cancelled due to funding cutbacks.Anyone able to confirm or deny 

Jeni --- 5 years ago -

I can confirm that it has been cancelled for 2013. Sorry :( 

Jeni --- 5 years ago -

I'm really bummed now. Where will I get my deep fried Twinkies??? 

Kara --- 5 years ago -

You won't get them anywhere...they don't make Twinkies anymore...the new company will not begin production in the factory until sometime in July.

You might get lucky if it's by July 4th. 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

I can make you some homemade twinkies! I make them daily, they are delish! ;) 

Jeni --- 5 years ago -

Well whip some mass quantities up woman, you can make a killing on an AF base... Well, until July anyways. 

O.o (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Daily?! lol that's too much temptation for me! Although.......I do miss that cakey, yellow deliciousness.... 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

No, not really...twinkies creep me out. I do, however have an Authtentic Mexican restaurant in the works.... 

Jeni --- 5 years ago -

Ahhhh, NOW we're talking! Real Mexican food sounds fantastic about now.
What time do you want us to come over? ;) 

O.o (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

No, not really...twinkies creep me out. I do, however have an Authtentic Mexican restaurant in the works....

O.O!!!! *fingers crossed for some street style tacos!!!* 

AFCartoonist --- 5 years ago -

Not to be negative, but as a Texan who lived on the Mexican border for 4 years, I have to ask: Are we talking Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican? 

Jeni --- 5 years ago -

Oh, Tex Mex sounds good too. You all are killing me. 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

Well authentic to me is Cali style. So giant burritos with rice (Spanish, not white) refried beans and a meat, carnitas, chile verde enchiladas, tamales...those types of things. What's authentic to you? Chile Colorado? My girlfriend makes that all the time, I had never had it before. 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

Mmm chicken mole! Can't forget that :) Hope to be as authentic as we can, finding what I need on the economy is a challenge. 

AFCartoonist --- 5 years ago -

I guess I meant more along the lines of flavor. Growing up Texan I practically lived on what I thought was Mexican food, but when I moved to the border I realized what I considered authentic Mexican was really Tex-Mex and I wasn't a fan of the real deal. 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

Oh...I myself am not a fan of Tex Mex. Isn't that what the Mexican restaurants here in UK serve? 

AFCartoonist --- 5 years ago -

Isn't that what the Mexican restaurants here in UK serve?

Dear God no. What they serve here is as close to Tex-Mex as, I dunno, an ice cream sandwich. 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

Lol. I tried looking up Tex Mex recipes but it's coming up with some wacky stuff man...but I saw enchiladas, carnitas, chimichangas. :D 

O.o (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Mmm Ice cream sandwich...

DO EET! That's what I'm used to as mexican food as well. I miss heading to the local taco trucks and ordering some yum tacos con langua or asada... Oh man...and some authentic horchata?? YES PLEASE! 

O.o (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Tortas..mmmm tortas... 

Masterchef --- 5 years ago -

Chimichangas in Bury is actually not bad for UK's version of Mexican. I've lived overseas long enough that I found is really good.... but that may because I haven't had any real Mexican food since 2007. 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

I JUST made some Horchata today!!! Love the stuff, my son would drink it like water if I let him. We had Carnitas last night. I'm spoiling my husband..Cinco De Mayo is coming up ya know. Hahaha
I have not been to Chimichangas, haven't heard good things though. We went to the place in Cambridge Leisure center when we first moved here and that was TERRIBLE!! 

O.o (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

Cinco De Mayo is coming up ya know. Hahaha

Are you hosting a party?? ;) 

Jeni --- 5 years ago -

What are we wearing to your party, Peace? I left my sombrero in Arizona :( Can't wait for some yummy REAL Mexican food!! 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

We are actually getting ready to go to someone else's! Thank goodness, I won't have to clean up the mess for once!

I'll actually get to have a drink or two this year! I was pregnant the last two years. LOL 

O.o (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

I'll actually get to have a drink or two this year! I was pregnant the last two years. LOL

Have a great time! :) We will be celebrating at home with silent prayers that an authentic mexican restaurant opens up around here in the near future ;)

I left my sombrero in Arizona

You just made me miss Chili's on birthdays... :P

BACK ON TOPIC....

i "heard" that barton mills car boots is gonna attempt to put on "something" on July 4th.. personally i wont be going as it wont be a scratch on what was on base & who else is involved in it doesnt deserve my money (with a connection to Zack/Zeta FM)

No, not really...twinkies creep me out. I do, however have an Authtentic Mexican restaurant in the works....
Peace: Please let me know when this happens, I am considering short touring here because you cannot find an authentic Mexican Restaurant anywhere on this island. Chimichanga's is garbage - it's like "new age" kind of mexican food... way overpriced. Contact me when you restaurant is set up... my fam and I will frequent 3 to 4 times a week! 

Peace --- 5 years ago -

I PM'd you back a3796410uu :) 

AFCartoonist --- 5 years ago -

A July 4th plan is in the earliest stages of development for RAF Mildenhall cardholders. More to follow as it becomes available.
