  1. When you soak that much bread you get a whole lot of meatballs . Prayers up.
  2. One time I bought a six pack of a locally produced root beer. Got home with it, popped the cap off of one bottle and got a very loud POP! "Wow! That's really carbonated!" I thought. Took a sip. Holy cow! It hoad fermented in the bottle. Had my wife try to confirm. Popped open another bottle. Same thing. Took it all back to the store (one of a family owned chain of 3 or 4 markets). Got hold of the manager and told him what was going on. He didn't believe me. I had him open a bottle I had brought back. Yep. Fermented. He pulled a few bottles off the shelves. Fermented. Pulled all the stock off the shelves. Dang, that stuff was good.
  3. I usually have the opposite problem - EVERYTHING looks good. Although I was in one place that a girlfriend wanted to try, a vegetarian place in the '80s, where nothing looked or sounded good. After the date I stopped at a burger joint to get something to eat.
  4. With a mix of breads like that I would be tempted to first make a stovetop stuffing (sauted onions and celery, bread cubes, poultry seasoning, and vegetable or chicken stock), then turn that into a savory bread pudding. Let it cool, make your custard of eggs, cream, etc. Put stuffing/dressing into a greased oven-safe dish, pour custard over it and bake.
  5. Maybe because it opens a PDF. The copy and paste works.
  6. Hardpan, the link you embedded just brings you back to your post. https://www.boyscouttrail.com/boy-scouts/meritbadges/cooking-merit-badge.asp Pretty darned impressive list of requirements.
  7. "the public expression of opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one's good character or social conscience or the moral correctness of one's position on a particular issue. "it's noticeable how often virtue signaling consists of saying you hate things" ·"
  8. Found on the Kern County Of Old Facebook group. My dad can give a history class on his younger days! This picture was taken in the 40’s; and he remembers everyone’s name; has a memory sharp as a knife a. Here is a photo of the Pack 5 Den 5 Cub Scout Williams School!
  9. It was one helluva good game. All of them were. Right now watching the Red Sox beat up on the Astros. Grand slams in the 1st inning and 2nd inning by Boston.
  10. Just had some. Crispy, chewy, not greasy, a little bit spicy. If you took the crispy outside from a fried patty of Johnsonville sausage that's what these are when cooked. It goes on our "Will Buy Again" list. Hmmm.... sausage wrapped meatloaf.....hmmmmm
  11. "I don’t know if I should present this award, on behalf of all the cowboys shot in all the John Ford Westerns over the years," Eastwood joked." Poking fun at virtue-signaling before virtue-signaling was the Law of the Land. The controversial remark occurred during a 1973 Academy Awards ceremony
  12. That movie had a huge impact on me. As soon as I read the title that image of Maj. Kong popped into my head.
  13. I think he managed to check his swing. But I remember a coach of a football team saying something like, "If we played so bad that one bad call cost us the game we deserved to lose."
  14. The remains of a V2 rocket fired by Nazi Germany at London during World War II have been unearthed in a field in South East England, where it crashed and exploded before reaching its target.
  15. https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(21)01271-9?utm_source=EA Highlights • Gut microbiome and diet of European salt miners determined using paleofeces • Until the Baroque, the microbiome resembled that of modern non-Westernized people • Food-fermenting fungi in Iron Age feces indicates blue cheese and beer consumption Summary We subjected human paleofeces dating from the Bronze Age to the Baroque period (18th century AD) to in-depth microscopic, metagenomic, and proteomic analyses. The paleofeces were preserved in the underground salt mines of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hallstatt in Austria. This allowed us to reconstruct the diet of the former population and gain insights into their ancient gut microbiome composition. Our dietary survey identified bran and glumes of different cereals as some of the most prevalent plant fragments. This highly fibrous, carbohydrate-rich diet was supplemented with proteins from broad beans and occasionally with fruits, nuts, or animal food products. Due to these traditional dietary habits, all ancient miners up to the Baroque period have gut microbiome structures akin to modern non-Westernized individuals whose diets are also mainly composed of unprocessed foods and fresh fruits and vegetables. This may indicate a shift in the gut community composition of modern Westernized populations due to quite recent dietary and lifestyle changes. When we extended our microbial survey to fungi present in the paleofeces, in one of the Iron Age samples, we observed a high abundance of Penicillium roqueforti and Saccharomyces cerevisiae DNA. Genome-wide analysis indicates that both fungi were involved in food fermentation and provides the first molecular evidence for blue cheese and beer consumption in Iron Age Europe
  16. Isn't that New Age for, "Well, bless your heart."?
  17. I saw it in Safeway when I did the shopping this evening. Picked up a package. I'll be cooking some in the morning. If it's like what I think it's like, it might make an interesting twist on jalapeno poppers, cured pork wrapped corn, shrimp, or scallops.
  18. A very strange year. The FIRST meeting of the Giants and Dodgers in the playoffs in their 131 year rivalry. A team with 107 regular season wins knocked out of the playoffs by a team with 106 regular season wins.
