There's already been an opera done for anyone curious that doesn't want to read the book. The tape of the Met simulcast should be available at your local library, or your PBS channel may have it on streaming (Great Performances, most likely.) Having attempted the book and seen the opera, I probably won't bother with…
If you've never been there, go to midcenturymenu.com. There's a whole jello and salad wormhole that rather frighteningly frequently intersects.
Well, you know...George Washington had slaves, so it was probably a bit easier for him to find that elusive work-life balance.
Thank you SO much for addressing the not crispy skin thing. People really don’t seem to understand that, and I’ve never been able to figure out why. It doesn’t have to be crispy to be good!
I’ve always done the Guinness pour on my beers, it just tastes better if you let it foam and then rest a bit. It’s nice to know that I’m not just crazy/lazy. (I also don’t refrigerate my beer, but that’s mostly because my refrigerator likes to freeze things no matter what setting it’s on.)
Ah! I have a reply window! I can comment! What magic is this? Should I go have a celebratory egg sandwich at Panera?
Baked potato soup shouldn’t be that hard, other than getting the baked potato skin part right. What are you thinking, bake an extra potato (or two) and reserve it for a stir in garnish right at the end?
Good points, I suppose my absolute disgust at even the idea of eating raw cookie dough or brownie batter, even the stuff designed to be eaten that way, puts me at a disadvantage when it comes to “snacks” like this.
Oh...oh my goodness would you be surprised. Yes, people do get fooled by this crap. Although I will grant you that they’re often the same people who would eat an entire sleeve of oreo thins and think that means they’re doing better with their diet than if they’d eaten the same number of regular oreos. Never…
The worst thing about it is that real abuses got ignored or pooh-poohed away as more hysteria for a period of about ten years afterward. There was a guy I went to high school with here who had gone to a daycare that was (much later) busted for their policy of putting the black and mixed kids in their care into dog…
I love soup haters, you know why? Because MORE SOUP FOR ME!
Would they necessarily be even slightly “better” though? Based on chickpeas, but it sounds as if it’s still just as full of fat, salt and sugar as any other junk food.
My brain wants me to say the Red Lobster casserole, but my (apparently still 14 year old) heart wants me to say the Food Court casserole. However, my mouth and my stomach are both shouting for the chile relleno casserole, so um....majority rules. My vote’s for chile relleno!
Perfect opportunity to go vegetarian though. Bean! With blue corn tortilla strips. The rest of the fixins should be easy enough to fit in there, except for the lettuce. I have to admit, I’m not sure how to incorporate that except as a side. Not crazy about the idea of topping a soup with lettuce, though I suppose if…
I was going to say “fried mini-ravioli croutons and sausage lardons” but I think I like your idea better.
So we’re basically (trying to, anyway) making the same point. He’s more/already prone to see Satanic boogeymen, even before his born-again years. I think that his behavior on twitter in this matter (which is all I’m addressing) is emblematic of that.
Which is the single best argument against Twitter existing. When every stray thought that passes through anyone’s head is considered worth publishing, it works as a detriment to meaningful and reasonable discourse and lowers any real conversation on the platform to the level of just more noise.
It also helps to remember when he was born though. Satanic Panic was a big thing during his childhood, not that I’m excusing him, or seeking to. I don’t doubt for a second that that’s made him much more prone to seeing Satanic boogeymen.
LOL! Yes, but with butter you’ve got much more leeway and flexibility. browned butter sauces made with clabbered butter are fantastic.
I wonder if they knew ahead of time that Chris was a recovering alcoholic, though? It seems to me that if they did know, they may/would have done something else, but that may just be me romanticizing an extremely long-running show that I’ve followed since its first season.
