I'm barely scraping by nowadays on my pun count.
1:15 pm
joansiebone

Nan, was wondering about your shortbread. Is it an old family recipe? I am curious about the aging requirement
1:15 pm
cybernan

yes - it was my grandmother's recipe, but a very common one for scottish shortbread
1:20 pm
joansiebone

Ingredients have changed over the years. I remember my grandmother insisting that butter made in the spring was too oniony for making cakes and pastries
1:20 pm
MollyL

We have become a bunch of dullards ๐Ÿ˜Š
1:26 pm
cybernan

my recipe is 1 cup butter, 2 cups sifted flour, 1/2 cup of castor or icing sugar (sifted). Butter shoud be at room temp. and the secret is to knead it until it has a silky feel, then a bit more for good measure :) Form into long blocks about 2" wide x 1/2" thick and prick with a fork. Chill for 1 hour before baking in 300F oven for 1 hour (edges turn slightly golden). Slice when hot. Cool and store in metal container for 3 weeks. Storage time enhances the flavour.
1:29 pm
cybernan

Unfortunately, the shortbread has not been as "melt in your mouth" since the dairy farmers started adding palm oil to their cows' feed.
1:32 pm
MollyL

Wait, when is butter made in the Spring still around at Christmas time?
1:33 pm
cybernan

it isn't -- remember when the butter and milk tasted off after the cows first started eating spring grass? I have never had that problem, because shortbread was always a Christmas treat for us.
1:45 pm
LeslieAnn

3:29 pm
doseffing

... nope ... it's just me .... it's what came to my strange mind first time I saw it on the grid ... it's what it sounded like in my head
3:30 pm
hokie carla

I mean technically it's one letter off from a country
3:30 pm
hokie carla

but in my head it's a zzhh sound vs a sh sound
3:37 pm
hokie carla

well, I have 85 left and HOET. but no big ones and only found six 7s. BBL. or not.

I made potato bread dough tonight to bake tomorrow
6:15 pm
penquis

nice...
6:16 pm
dcseain

this time with starchy white potatoes instead of waxy red potatoes to see how it's different. I really loved the red potato bread.
6:16 pm
penquis

cool....don't think i have ever had that...
6:17 pm
dcseain

it was a bit odd seeing bits of the red -- rather purple after baking -- potato skin bits in the bread, but tasty all around.
6:18 pm
penquis

sounds good....my father used to bake bread every once in a while in the wintertime mainly....
6:18 pm
dcseain

I bake it year round. Due to my barley allergy, it's annoying, but not impossible, to buy bread.
6:20 pm
penquis

well i think he would have made it more often if he wasn't working 60 hour weeks...he seemed to enjoy it....worked in a bakery for a bit when he was young...also went to some kind of cooking school when he went in the army...that was before they handed him a bazooka and sent him to Belgium....
6:22 pm
dcseain

neat! how classic for his age group.
6:24 pm
penquis

yes, i suppose....luckily he was able to soon ditch the bazooka to work for the headquarters unit....they found out he was fluent in French....
6:25 pm
dcseain

how lucky for him in terms of personal safety!
6:26 pm
penquis

yes....but he was almost shot when he was stopped by a guard who asked him who won the last World Series....he grew up in Canada and had no knowledge of sports....and he spoke with an accent....
6:27 pm
dcseain

:/ War is reactionary like that.
6:28 pm
penquis

yup....but overall he was very lucky....made it through...and so did his two brothers....
6:28 pm
dcseain

one of my great-grandfather moved from Germany to France to Quebec to Ohio, and had an accent, and fluency in German, French, and English.
6:28 pm
dcseain

how lovely that they all came home!
6:30 pm
penquis

yes, very nice, especially for my grandparents....my father's family came to Canada in the early 1600s....moved to Maine after the turn of the century for a few years, back to Canada, and permanently to Maine in the early 1930s...
