happy Eid, if we have any muslims among us and since it is thus fittingly in the grid today! lol
8:16 am
MollyL

I'm in on anything that is called The Festival of Breaking Fast
8:18 am
BzznBea

Other than you have to fast first...
8:19 am
MollyL

I can't believe they fast for a month and then feast on things like mutton. I can think of better things to feast on.
8:20 am
MollyL

Maybe after fasting for a month, mutton sounds good
8:22 am
BzznBea

I've never cared for lamb.
8:28 am
mattygroves

I love lamb, but didn't learn to like it until I'd been in the UK a few years - it's far more popular here than it was at home
8:28 am
MollyL

I can't get past the smell of the stuff. Ugh
8:29 am
hokie carla

I don't think I've ever had lamb
8:32 am
cybernan

good morning all
8:33 am
cybernan

I don't think molly has ever had lamb either -- it doesn't smell. It is mutton that stinks.
8:33 am
hurshy

i've never even seen mutton!
8:34 am
BzznBea

Mutton is just an older sheep.
8:34 am
hurshy

i know
8:34 am
MollyL

I am talking about mutton. Others brought up lamb.
8:34 am
hurshy

i've just never been around anyone cooking or eating it
8:34 am
hokie carla

ok, I've never had lamb or mutton
8:35 am
cybernan

they used to serve it once a month in my university dorm, but you could smell it cooking from 2 blocks away. A lot of us hit the campus pizza shop those nights.
8:35 am
hurshy

i wonder why mutton smells bad? weird
8:36 am
MollyL

It's something about the fat
8:38 am
MollyL

Wow Nan. And here I thought my university cafeteria had crappy food.
8:38 am
mattygroves

It can be fatty, tis true, though it depends on which cuts you get. The first time I was ever served roast pork in the UK I was asked if I wanted crackling. I asked what it was - it's the pork fat/rind all crisped up. I thought they were trying to kill me ... but it's absolutely and utterly delicious (when done well)
8:38 am
hurshy

in Little House in the Big Woods they talk about those cracklings
8:39 am
BzznBea

Yes, crackling is yummy. So is pork belly.
8:39 am
hurshy

phantom: harridan
8:39 am
mattygroves

Oh yes - and sooo much tastier than more expensive cuts of pork
8:39 am
welki

'morning, all
8:39 am
MollyL

You guys are making me queasy. I just can't chow down on fat
8:39 am
mattygroves

Pork fat is no doubt terrible for you but it is delicious
8:39 am
hurshy

me neither molly
8:40 am
MLFAN17

yeah i dont like fat either
8:40 am
hokie carla

I had pork belly once and it was delish
8:41 am
MollyL

I used to make time with a guy who would take all the fat I cut off my steak and eat it. Blech
8:41 am
BzznBea

Ya'll eat bacon?
8:41 am
hokie carla

ewww, and lol at "make time"
8:41 am
MLFAN17

i love bacon
8:41 am
hurshy

i don't eat meat at all anymore, but when i did, i never did like bacon. the flavor/smell of it is good but the texture... can't deal
8:41 am
MollyL

Yeah, I eat bacon and that is the extent of my fat eating
8:42 am
hokie carla

mmm, bacon
8:42 am
hurshy

and don't even get me started on sausage... so gross

Pork belly is not all fat. It does have meat in it. Pork belly tacos are delish!

I love me a pork product :)
8:42 am

i love breakfast sausage otherwise not so much
8:42 am

Truth be told, I do a lot of fat trimming on my bacon before cooking
8:42 am
BzznBea

Me too, matty.
8:42 am
hokie carla

I don't like breakfast sausage, like the patties and links, but I like the other sausage
8:43 am
MLFAN17

yeah patties and links yum
8:43 am
hokie carla

no, yuck
8:44 am
hurshy

since i've learned more about pigs, eating them now seems to me the same as eating dogs
8:44 am
MollyL

Sausage is like the hamburger of pork
8:44 am
BzznBea

A local meat market makes their own ground sausage. It is the best sausage around.
8:45 am
hurshy

but what makes sausage grosser than ground beef is the addition of the various spices
8:45 am
cybernan

not crazy about pork either. Make breaded pork tenderloin once in a while just for something different, but that's about it.
8:45 am
mattygroves

Anyone here tried Scrapple? Delicious, but you really don't want to know what they used to use to make it
8:45 am
hokie carla

why would that make it grosser? spices are supposed to add flavor. my cousin can't eat sausage because she's allergic to sage or something.
8:46 am
MollyL

I would love to have a professional-grade meat grinder. And the spices are what make sausage better than ground beef. What is gross about sage and thyme>
8:46 am
BzznBea

I've got a pork butt in the freezer. Will make pulled pork next week.
8:46 am
hurshy

well, hokie, i'm one of those people that have trouble with putting certain things together. not everything, but like, for example, i love chocolate, and i love peanut butter, but i do NOT like them together
8:46 am
cybernan

sort of like haggis matty?
8:46 am
BzznBea

I can't get past the looks of it, matty. Same with head cheese and souse.
8:47 am
MollyL

Imagines Hurshy is one of those people who cannot have different foods touching on her plate
8:47 am
hokie carla

I think scrapple is a southern thing but I've never had it
8:47 am
MLFAN17

pork butt???
8:47 am
mattygroves

Well, haggis is sheep, Scrapple is a Pennsylvania pork product. It's called scrapple for a reason (though store bought scrapple is no longer made of scraps)
8:47 am
MLFAN17

uggh i dont even like the smell of it!
8:47 am
hokie carla

oh, not southern then
8:47 am
hurshy

i like sage and thyme, but my brain expects meat to taste like meat, not sage and thyme, and it revolts at the unexpected
8:47 am
cybernan

same principle, different animal
8:47 am
hurshy

no, i can have different foods touching on my plate, and i like lots of casseroles. it's only certain things, idk why
8:48 am
BzznBea

Pork butt is actually a cut of meat from the shoulder of the hog.
8:48 am
hokie carla

when I first moved to charlotte, I kept seeing livermush. still haven't tried it.
8:48 am
MollyL

That is interesting Hurshy. You must never have like Thanksgiving turkey then. Most of them are heavily seasoned
8:48 am
MLFAN17

hokie same here
8:48 am

ha, not in my family they're not, molly, lol
8:48 am

i don't think i wanna know what livermush is

I just googled it, shirl, I don't think you wanna know either
8:49 am

Pork shoulder isn't good?
8:49 am

I cannot imagine turkey with no seasoning. How bland that must be.
8:50 am
MLFAN17

2nd column i stats pls?
8:50 am
hurshy

my mom has NO concept of seasoning, everything is bland as can be. she is a terrible cook. so, i actually like a lot MORE flavor than i was used to getting from her growing up.
8:50 am
hokie carla

I love me some pulled pork barbecue
8:50 am
cybernan

only edible liver to my mind is goos or duck and then in small amounts on a slice of baguette and served with a nice late harvest wine.
8:50 am
mattygroves

https://honest-food.net/wprm_print/279\n06 - here's an authentic scrapple recipe (most modern recipes use normal pork cuts)
8:50 am
MollyL

I'm guessing there was no gravy either since that has seasoning as well.
8:50 am
cybernan

*goose
8:51 am

bzz no pork butt though i am not sure if i have had a prok shoulder or not actually
8:51 am

Are you a vinegar or ketchup bbq fan, Carla?
8:51 am
hurshy

we did have gravy, but the kind you make from a packet of powder and mix with water...
8:51 am
mattygroves

The recipe I just linked to uses the pork head
8:51 am
JaxH66

In the UK turkey isn't normally seasoned with anything other than salt and pepper. I cook mine covered with butter and bacon and make sure I buy a good quality turkey which has more flavour
8:51 am
hokie carla

I'd say more vinegar, bea
8:51 am
BzznBea

You eat pulled pork? Ham?
8:51 am
mattygroves

Here's an example instruction:
Set the pig's head in a large kettle and cover it with water. Bring this to a boil and skim off all the scum that floats to the surface. When this is done, add the carrots, onion, bay leaves, juniper and black peppercorns. Simmer this, adding more water if the level drops below the pig's head, until the meat wants to fall off the bone, about 3 hours.
Carefully remove the pig's head and pick off all the meat and random bits. I toss the eyes and the palate, which aren't very tasty. Chop everything up very fine, and combine with the spice mix in a bowl.
8:51 am
MollyL

*Raises hand for ketchup, not vinegar

I know NC has 2 styles of BBQ. I like both. In fact, I like NC BBQ better than all the others, Memphis, KC, TX, etc
8:52 am

I'm from the midwest so I like mine tomato based, but I do like the vinegar based on occasion.
8:52 am

vinegar, ewwww
8:52 am
cybernan

oh heavens, after reading that I'm sure glad I haven't had breakfast yet.
8:53 am
mattygroves

As I say, most recipes and all store bought scrapple does not use the scraps!
8:53 am
hokie carla

I really don't like hickory smoke flavor, so any BBQ sauce with that is gross
8:53 am
MollyL

The only thing I use vinegar for is Italian dressing. Otherwise it is for cleaning
8:53 am
JaxH66

It's amazing how different cuisines are. And how different names of cuts of meats are.
8:53 am

I'm sorry for y'all that don't like NC BBQ

If you learn to cook it with decent levels of seasoning it's not bland, but it depends on if you only like extremely spiced foods, then it might not suit your taste. I often don't like the American style foods as I find that they all use a strange mixture of spices. It depends on what you're used to. I think the British eat a much wider range of different cuisines than a lot of Americans. 50 years ago, I would have agreed with your comment that British food was bland, but not now
8:59 am

9:01 am

I think many American flavourings are sweeter than European ones (a generalisation, to be sure) - like, baked beans in the UK are a tomato based sauce, not a molasses based sauce - bbq sauces are less sweet here, etc
9:03 am
phaeton

mlf...it uses double cons
9:03 am
BzznBea

There is def a difference between Heinz beans and pork and beans
9:03 am

as a European who moved to the US: the US definitely has sweeter flavorings

I mean, who is the nut job that decided to put maple syrup on bacon?
9:04 am
BzznBea

mlf, all you have to do is get two letters from the clue I gave you.
9:04 am
hokie carla

I absolutely hate maple flavoring. the smell makes me 🀒
9:05 am
mael

but I hate mixing sweet and savory, I'm pretty sure the only time that happens in Italian cuisine is with prosciutto and melon, and I can't say that melon is particularly sweet to begin with
9:05 am
hokie carla

it's not on all bacon thank goodness
9:05 am
hokie carla

melon is super sweet!
9:05 am
mael

yeah, I like maple syrup on pancakes or waffles but that's about the end of it. Maybe in cakes. But it's for SWEET food.
9:05 am
hurshy

i love maple syrup and those maple candies
9:06 am
mael

I should have said cantaloupe, that's what we call "melone"
9:07 am
cybernan

there used to be a liqueur called Entre Nous that was rye based with maple flavouring -- you would have loved that hurshy
9:07 am
hokie carla

yeah, I was thinking you meant cantaloupe since that's what I've seen with prosciutto. I don't like cantaloupe but I know watermelon is super sweet.
9:07 am

um, well, i've never had alcohol and i hate rye bread, so idk about that

9:13 am

if rye bread were meat with just rye and no wheat could you eat it? i mean does rye itself have gluten? i know oats don't
9:13 am

isn't spelt gluten free?
9:13 am
hurshy

*made, not meat, lol
9:13 am
hurshy

typing too fast
9:13 am
HarryHood

rye is a type of wheat isnt it?
9:14 am
hurshy

oh i thought it was a different grain
9:14 am
hokie carla

oats are gluten free, but often grown with wheat so are cross-contaminated. have to buy oat products labeled gluten free.
9:14 am
HarryHood

hurshy the first sentence you wrote sounded like dr. suess. "if rye bread were meat with just rye and no wheat"
9:14 am

yeah, rye is a no go
9:14 am

no - rye is another grain entirely

We need rain too, Nan!!
10:20 am
cybernan

it is so dry here we're getting 5 or more new fires every day and we've already had more than 1200 in the last 2 months
10:21 am
cybernan

we have to wash the ash off the patio tables and chairs every time we want to use them.
10:22 am
72 Temple Owl

the ash is in our air and we have had air quality alerts for particulate matter for three days. too hazy to see the sun.
10:23 am
cybernan

are you on the west coast TO?

10:23 am

No, east
10:24 am
cybernan

didn't know there were fires on the east coast as well
10:24 am
cybernan

at least we all have masks to wear when we go out in the smoke
10:25 am
cybernan

da 7 -- like the lazy flower?
10:26 am
sammysmom

yup- thanks nan
10:28 am
MollyL

The ash in the air on the east coast is being caused by the west coast fires
10:31 am
MollyL

And paper and cloth masks won't do much to protect you from wildfire smoke. You need a respirator for that.
10:32 am
cybernan

the masks help keep the particulates out though
10:33 am
cybernan

I had to put one on just to go out and turn the hose off. We don't just have smoke dust in the air -- you can see the chunks of ash -- table tops look like an ashtray

10:59 am

Something you draw straight + _______ from your grave and walk among the living
11:02 am
MLFAN17

compound word?
11:03 am
MollyL

Not really
11:07 am
MLFAN17

no idea
11:08 am
MLFAN17

working on it among others
11:08 am
hokie carla

if you have 2 points and draw a straight li4, they are li6 (math term)
11:08 am
hokie carla

if you make something li6, you are going to li9 it, but spelled like the brits do something, not like US americans
11:11 am
hurshy

an equation in the form y = mx + b is a li6 equation, as opposed to, say, an exponential one :)
11:11 am
MollyL

Okay, what is the difference between what I posted "draw a straight" and what Carla posted? There is only one thing you can do from your grave.
11:11 am

You can do that IN your grave not FROM your grave

hokie carla

LOL. luckily there's no length cap on the chat
11:17 am
MLFAN17

i do both
11:18 am
MollyL

It is just so amusing. People say they "don't want to use the list". Yet they ask questions like that and people who do look at the list answer, so what is the difference? It's like having someone look at the list for you
11:18 am
MLFAN17

that was how i answered hokie's question about ae words as i didnt even know
11:18 am
MLFAN17

some probably do

would you rather guess my missing A from there?

Oh jeeze. Okay, inclusive of other ethnic terms, aka the hindu words.

1:26 pm

1:27 pm
cybernan

ty pen - snap
1:28 pm
cybernan

but this is supposed to be a game in english - to me that means inclusively english
1:28 pm
penquis

but where to draw the line?....adios....penne....etc....
1:29 pm
MollyL

So do you have a problem with the French words too Nan?
1:29 pm
penquis

it's like one of the creators was a retired English soldier who lived in foreign lands while serving his kind or queen...
1:29 pm
mael

enable picked foreign words that have meaning in english
1:30 pm
MollyL

Really? sr7 has meaning in English?
1:30 pm
mael

now, is enable wrong a lot? yeah. There are plenty of words that ought to be recognized, english words!, that are not, especially abbreviations. But from there to saying that enable is politically correct because it includes foreign words you don't know, welll
1:30 pm
penquis

never heard of the dh 8 either...
1:31 pm
mael

one can argue that NO loan word is acceptable, but then that removes MOST of the english language
1:31 pm
cybernan

yes - I don't think any foreign language words should be accepted in a game that is supposedly in english
1:31 pm
mael

but again, the question is... is penne still a foreign word? zucchini? piano?
1:31 pm
penquis

to me it's not a question of politically correct....it's a question of foreign words that haven't become commonly used in English....
1:31 pm
MollyL

Q: How do you make a liberal happy?
A: You can't, just keep acting like you're trying.
1:32 pm
mael

the problem is "commonly used" not "foreign"
1:32 pm
mael

because there are plenty of old english words in Enable that haven't been commonly used in a century or more
1:32 pm
mael

you know what redd means?
1:32 pm
penquis

not to me....there are English words here that are not commonly used and I have no problem with that....
1:34 pm
mael

but the foreign words enable recognize come from an english dictionary, because they have no english equivalent. Enable doesn't pick them out of a hat.
1:34 pm
MollyL

Scrabble's rule is...Foreign words are permitted as long as they appear in English dictionaries
1:34 pm
cybernan

there are many words that come from a foreign language that have been adopted into the english language -- I, at least, am not talking about those.
1:34 pm
penquis

there are plenty of words here that aren't in a lot of dictionaries....
1:35 pm
cybernan

but we get a lot of purely foreign language words and a lot of latin terms that are specific to various disciplines that I don't think should be allowed
1:37 pm
mael

where do you draw the line is the problem
1:37 pm
mael

at least we know enable is an aggregate
1:37 pm
penquis

sr 7 is a word that i don't think should be there....only know the word because Molly mentioned the stats and i searched for it....
1:37 pm
mael

and some words are dumb, the ones that don't even have a definition at all, but some are just very very obscure
1:38 pm
penquis

and i have no idea what it means....
1:38 pm
mael

oh, I agree. But the problem is not "political correctness;" it's just that some words in dictionaries are so completely obscure that they might as well not be in there
1:39 pm
mael

let's be clear, that word is not in there because someone in charge of Enable said "we need more foreign words to appease people"
1:39 pm
MollyL

Okay Mael, a thousand apologies for using the term politically correct.
1:39 pm
penquis

well i am going back to lurking for a while...bye all....
1:39 pm
cybernan

7-8 is another example -- anyone know what it means?
1:40 pm
MollyL

Yeah, me too Pen
1:40 pm
mael

a thousand apologies accepted
1:40 pm
cybernan

an indian rug apparently
1:41 pm
mael

I think what enable needs is updating
1:42 pm
mael

there are many words that are common now that it doesn't accept: ramen, soba, udon to name three, many abbreviations, perp, info, etc
1:42 pm
mael

but that's a whole other problem
1:43 pm
cybernan

don't agree that slang, anacronyms and abbreviations should be accepted either
1:44 pm
cybernan

nor prefixes

i am betting that's what she's talking about, Jeff. Lots of dogs getting rescued during the pandemic!
7:29 pm
origami

Thanks, Jeff. Yes, I have seen those. One is the one I was talking about that has a long list of folks wanting to adopt and one is in a foster-to-adopt situation. There are some that were rescued from the meat trade, and I have a phone call into that org. Thanks. I check petfinder often.
7:30 pm

7:31 pm

We got our Papillon through petfinder but we were lucky. He had just been listed. He was 2 years old but only weighed 2.8 pounds. He's now 12 and is doing fine, though has lost many teeth
7:33 pm
LeslieAnn

i volunteer at a regional animal shelter and they can't keep dogs for more than a few days. it's great for the dogs, more difficult for adopters!

I have decided that I really want a beagle or comparable dog. My two dogs passed earlier this year (both large hounds) and I need something more manageable.

Yeah, dachsunds are hard. I would opt for a corgi, but the ones I know have been frought with health problems.

The corgi/husky muxes are so cute. Maybe they would be less prone than a pure-bred.
