Teh Squeaky Wheel
Standard time greetings, Wheelizens!
That thread GIF woman done got goosed; I bet she’s pretty honked-off.
The offender should probably be force-fed and used for paté.
As I type this, SoulFoodK is in teh kitchen whipping up a batch of cornbread with chopped jalapeños. (I got to be sous-chef as cheddar-shredder and jalapeño jacker.) 😉
Fortunately, since we don’t have any Internet of Things appliances, we do not have to worry about this scenario:
Probably the goose didnt like little yappy dogs. Happy Sunday, GN!
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
We have a dense fog warning, this morning. I wonder why the never issue dense voter warnings?
Today, in church, we celebrate All Saints Day, when we remember those who have left us this year and all the saints in our lives who have gone before us. For me, that will always include Miss Emily and Backhoe.
I have folded time.
Hey, Sven, Paddy and Mac!
SouthronK’s cornbread is delicious. It’s a stove-top recipe as we have been without an oven for a while. Teh yay for cast iron pans!
Current stove is an inexpensive replacement for the one which came with the house and is about four years old. Bad oven / broiler control circuit; replacement part’s slightly north of $100. Not comfortable attempting to replace a component on a 220v appliance and hiring-in an expert would cost at least as much. So, we’re keeping an eye on sales at big box stores. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
P.S. -- FY, Tappan.
Since Mac can fold time, maybe he can advise us re Wednesday’s Powerball numbers. 🙂
Only forum time, Fatwad.
Drat and tarnation!!1!
When I first saw today’s thread gif I thought, “This is why goose dinners became popular.”
But then, we don’t eat lawyers and politicians.
Because, like the clowns they are, pols and mouthpieces “taste funny”.
OTOH, scumbag lawyers / politicians plus wood chippers yield a very fine mulch for the Tree of Liberty.
Yes , clearly this woman is worth voting for:
Do you recognize the black woman behind her? It’s St. Trayvon’s mother.
Saw this on FB and couldn’t help but laugh a bit. I voted the first day of early voting here.
Yesterday I made over a half hour on the treadmill at 2.8mph and worked with the five pound hand weight after. Today I barely made ten minutes and needed a nitro pill, and I slowed down at four minutes when I started to feel pain in the chest and arm. I guess Taco Bell is not heart friendly food for dinner.
Go easy, Mac. How are you feeling now?
I’m OK, thank you, Sven. I know Taco Bell is not health food but it surprises me how quickly I feel it. I had discomfort last night and this morning, and really felt it as soon as I started on the treadmill. It was strange as yesterday I did more than I have been able to do since Easter and I felt OK. I have felt discomfort before after eating it but this comes and goes so I wasn’t sure, but this was rather obvious. I’ve lived on junk food for 50 years. Pfffttt.
OK, well, there’s a warning sign and if there’s anything I know about you, you aren’t dumb. Modifying a lifetime of eating habits isn’t an easy task, but if you take it slow, you can get there.
Mrs Sven has cut off my bread intake. All my work sandwiches for the last two weeks have been “lettuce wraps.” I put that in quotes cuz I can’t believe it’s a real thing, but there you go. Lettuce wraps.
I tried that when I went low carb but I could never really make it work. I suspect I am too lazy to do it right. I did find a good way to eat tuna and mayo was to use it instead of salad dressing. It added protein to the salad and eliminated the bread, and I liked it. I could go simple or elaborate with the salad. I also sometimes do that with sliced lunch meat or with fish fillets, cutting them up and adding to salad with a little mayo. Also do this with cut up steak and even hamburger patties. I still eat some bread but not much and it is whole wheat and low carb.
If you find you miss bread too much as I did when I was losing weight, I can send you our Gentle Harper’s flax bread recipe. It is made in a Pyrex bowl in a microwave in less than 1 1/2 minutes so it is easy to make as desired or they reheat decently from the refrigerator. I was eating one or two a day.
Low carb and good fiber. I found all my food was “wet” or greasy or vegetables. I missed something dryer like crackers or bread. I lost 50 pounds that year without being hungry.
When you have time, Mac, I’d love to check out Miss Harper’s recipe. I hope that her and David are both doing well.
The first place Oakland Raiders face off against the Broncos. I might even have a few beers during the game.
This is what Harper sent to me and below is my method.
And now, on to my breakfast “bread”.
I found this recipe looking around through some Atkins/keto groups
It was good and easy to make but too greasy and eggy for my taste so I started making it in a small 2 cup pyrex dish and cutting down the amount of butter until I got to about 1Tablespoon(ish). Spreading it out in the larger dish took care of the concentrated eggy texture and made it more bread like. What I most enjoy is how it scratches the back of the throat going down like a good grain bread.
So…. here’s what I’ve come up with that works best for me.
*Get a little microwave safe bowl or biiiiig coffee cup.
*Put a scant Tablespoon full of Butter or Bacon Grease in it. (Bacon grease tastes best!)
*Put dish in microwave for a few seconds to melt butter.
*Swirl butter around dish a little bit of the way up the side to grease the dish.
*Add 1teaspoon Baking Powder and stir around a little with a fork
*Add One Egg and hand whip with the fork.
*Add 1/4 Cup Flaxseed Meal and mix in with fork.
*Put in microwave for 1 Minute 10 Seconds. (adjust time accd. your own microwave)
*Remove from microwave and use knife around edge to ease bread out of dish and turn out onto cooling rack to await a topping of bacon and eggs! I also like to toast it and top it with cream cheese sometimes.
I use Bobs Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal that I got at Safeway. http://www.bobsredmill.com
It also, er, will keep one’s system very regular. A quarter cup of fiber every morning…heh. Be prepared. ;7}
-I use a 2 cp Pyrex bowl, about 6″ diameter with tapered sides and flat bottom.
-1 TBS of butter and about 10 sec in microwave to melt it, then turn and tilt bowl to grease up sides close to top.
-I add one egg, 1 ts baking powder, and 1/4 cup flax meal. I get mine at Walmart.
-Mix with fork and cook in microwave for 1 min and 10 to 20 sec..
-I take out and put a paper towel over it and turn it over and shake until it drops into my hand, then let it cool on a rack or paper towel.
This makes a dark and course bread with a strong flax taste. Harper told me she found that a measure of Spenda softened the texture and I found it did, making it softer, more spongy and cake like. I prefer this. I started using sugar free preserves from Walmart that were sweetened with Spenda. I found a couple of spoonfuls had the same effect plus it gave it a fruity taste and made it more like a pastry. I also add vanilla and cinnamon because I like these. They are good warm and soft, but also reheat well. I have had them with butter, with sugar free vanilla pudding on top, and with whipped cream, either canned or Cool-whip. I was eating them for breakfast or for lunch, or as dessert after dinner. Sometimes as a snack. It helped me replace the bread or potatoes I was missing and was a nice dessert. The other ingredients like cinnamon or preserves I just stir in with the rest before cooking. Simple and fast. We usually made two as it was just as easy as one. We use the Pyrex 7200 2 cup and 7201 1 qt bowls a lot so we have a number on hand. I have not made some for some time but now I want some so I will start making it again.
Sorry for the massive comment. You know what a motormouth Mac is.
