1:04 am

i like to take the time to cook something really yummy, but tonight i'm too hungry to wait for good food...so a quick fry up and veg in the microwave...franch fries are left over from a couple days ago.
1:05 am
VolleymomDee

aww gotcha
1:05 am
TraderKate

gourmet night is most nights... but i generally coiok enough for two or three nights so just have to re-heat..don't have the time to spend cooking hours every night and i like left overs just fine
1:06 am
VolleymomDee

very luck family kate!!
1:08 am
TraderKate

no family, just me...cooking a decent meal every night for one is a pain in th ar4, and i don't have the time, hence the left over menus...i cook a roast or something and then just have to re-heat..cheating but i can't stand instant food
1:09 am
TraderKate

although i do have a hankering for beans and wieners on toast....
1:10 am

I can understand that; I made sloppy joes the other night from scratch, and then the next night used the leftovers with pasta and a cheese sauce for a casserole

Good morning. Mine is next Tuesday. Don't know about you but my father was home on Christmas leave from the airforce.
1:13 am
TraderKate

that's the key..use leftovers to make the next meal...it makes me absolutely crazy to throw food away. i will actuallly put small amounts of food away in fridge, knowing i won't eat it (probably)and wait forit to grow fur before i throw it away...justified that it was bad
1:14 am

Have a good one FM.

Haydn, Prokofiev, and two Canadian composers, one of whom came to the performance. Jens Lindemann (Canadian Brass) did Haydn's Trumpet Concerto. The whole thing was a blast and the musicians all looked as if they were having fun too.
1:41 am
dcseain

oh, sounds just lovely, jilli! I'm so looking forward to playing with a group again.
1:41 am
TraderKate

I have no interest in the rankings -- they don't seem to make much sense
1:42 am
TraderKate

haven't heard canadian brass in years, sounds like a nice selection of music
1:44 am

i saw Canadian Brass for free - or was it $5. either way cheap - at George Mason U when i was student there. That was in '91 or '92.

tone and emphasis, actually Kate. Due to the tones, inflection is less important, and sometimes impossible.
2:22 am

oftentimes impossible, actually.

must be very difficult, the languages are so different than many of the ones we are more accustomed to..no familiarity whatsoever

5:49 am
Atalante

normally I'd ask husband to download from my email at his work, but this time I just couldn't. Some guy from Asia was sending me huge huge image files for Oxonmoot - well, kind of, we are having a "discussion" about what level of adult material should be allowed in the art show. So, he labels all his files to me "pictures of anal sex in comics"

6:57 am
Haz1558

You just had to bring Italian ice-cream into it, didn't you?
6:57 am
Atalante

why is Italian pistachio ice cream better than pistachio cie cream in any other country?
6:57 am
Sally-catlover

Innocent look.

Haz1558

Good morning cross.
6:58 am
crosshair

i can nake a nachio or torrone gelato that whould bring a tear to yer eyes haz;))
6:58 am
Haz1558

The clue might be in it being Italian. I love the way they display their ice-creams.
6:58 am
Sally-catlover

All Italian ice cream is better, for sure. Wistful sigh.
6:59 am
Atalante

Trifioso

I know, right?
7:05 am
Anniebrook

that is strange, trif
7:06 am

apparently he feels it will offer "stability and continuity" for the kids. Um.....no.
7:06 am
DR1965

I dont believe him
7:06 am
Anniebrook

Trif, do not hand over all the pictures
7:07 am
Trifioso

and I had to bite my tongue about in HALF when he said he didn't want to take one painting we had because it would "break up a set". Yes, pity to break up a set, dear
7:08 am
Trifioso

at this point, I am so "whatever, tool" about the whole thing. they are just THINGS - I get the children.
7:08 am
Sally-catlover

How wise you are Trif.

7:09 am
DR1965

I agree Trif
7:09 am
Trifioso

7:10 am
Anniebrook

The children will have a loving and stable home with you, Trif.
7:10 am
Trifioso

I can stretch a dollar, believe you me! raised by two depression babies, and a grammy that knew hard, hard times in Scotland during WWI. AND, I am a Yankee gal to boot! A Scottish New Englander is the very definition of thrift!

drawer porridge! lololol

Atalante

gruel
7:12 am
Haz1558

Legend has it that Scots people would make vast quantities of very thick porridge, store it in drawers and hack out a piece as required.
7:12 am
Sally-catlover

lol Haz
7:12 am
Anniebrook

Yes, which is fine. Their Dad should also take care of the children's financial needs. The financial burden should fall entirely on you.
7:12 am

I have never heard that Haz
7:12 am

DR dearest, I have a roof over my head, food for my table, and a warm, clean bed to sleep in. Good health, and people who love me. I need to remember that - I already have more than I deserve

Atalante

thick porridge with SALT in
7:13 am
Trifioso

HUGS right back!
7:14 am
Haz1558

You wouldn't dream of putting SUGAR in porridge if you're a Scot. It's against the law.
7:14 am
Trifioso

I think I would probably take my chances with drawer porridge over grits. I just can't eat grits at all. (shudder)
7:14 am
Andree

you have the right attitude trif
7:14 am
Andree

my dad had his all his life with salt
7:14 am

Drawer porridge is the way forward. You can bring it with you when you move house and everything.

7:16 am
Wolvie

well neighbor me on farmville girl, you got me started. :-)
7:16 am
Haz1558

You're never suggesting that a brawny Scot wouldn't be able to lift his own drawers? Haven't you seen them chucking telegraph poles about?
7:16 am
Atalante

can manage grits or porridge, just not a huge plateful of utterly bland biscuits and gravy
7:16 am
Wolvie

I hope it lasts!
7:16 am

getting there! got millions of requests to work through!
7:16 am
Trifioso

LOL haz!

Wolvie

oh - is there a grid? lol

oh gads, haz, a memory stirs! used to get horrible oatmeal at summer camp - left in the bowl untouched, it would congeal into a bouncy blob, that you actually could bounce a spoon on. icky
7:19 am
Wolvie

eewww lol
7:19 am
Haz1558

It could be used to describe some babble grids. 'It's like trying to hack out a piece of drawer porridge.'

1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 1/4 tbsp. Corn syrup
1 tbsp. Vanilla
3/16 tsp. Salt
1 12.5-oz jar Schmucker's marshmallow ice cream topping

Beat together first 6 ingredients with mixer's wire whisk attachment. Beat in marshmallow topping on high speed until evenly incorporated.

the problem I find is that people who actually eat a lot of food that would be vegan get weirded out when we come to visit and make a BIG DEAL out of how far out of their way they have to go to accomodate my food allergies.

did yu kinow that soy acts like estrogen in the body as it breaks down...it's not just extra body fat that's making today's girls reach menarche at an earlier and earlier age...scary if you think about it

his Vegan Creamy Whipped Topping Recipe was submitted on 02/21/2003 by Joyce from MA.

"This is a healthful soy-based alternative to whipped cream."

Ingredients:
1 cup drained and blotted soft silken tofu
2 tablesppons confectioners' sugar or 1/4 cup sugar syrup* or natural liquid sweetener
1 tablespoon safflower or other neutral-tasting oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions:
1. Place the tofu, confectioners' sugar, oil, vanilla, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor and process until smooth and creamy.

2. Transfer to a small container, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. This topping should be used within a few hours after making it.

* Sugar Syrup
combine 1/4 cup of sugar or other granular sweetener with 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before using. If you're not using sugar, use a light-tasting natural sweetener so it doesn't overpower the flavor of the topping.

EXCEPT, kate -- that cultures that have a lot of soy in its regular forms (and as tofu and tempeh) DON'T hit menarche early. I think it's like the added sugars ...

they get feminine traits...you know boobies etc. but need high doses in males to have effect because they have so much more testerone to counteract the estrogen.
