Re: More Stuff

Granted, I have offered to help with bills in the past, and they kept telling me they don't need help (though they would also later bitch at me for not paying any of the bills). Suggestion (ignore it if you prefer): go around them. Take proof that you live at the same address, go to the electric co...

"Carved Stone Esty Store" -- First good giggle I've had in a while!

Now this is a good hobby for young Pickle to learn both patience and precision while making tiny carved statuary instead of carving canyons in plutonic bedrock or something. Good for her!
You mean something like this?

Re: More stuff to not work with...

For some buyers/eaters, "sweet" is a big part of the attraction. The initial taste of sugary sweetness from the powdered sugar is more of a draw then the taste of the donut itself. I find that powdered sugar on the surface of a donut has a slight negative effect on its sweetness - not enough, thoug...

No - he was a food chemist primarily {as that dissertation would indicate} and he specialised in powders. He apparently had a major hand in developing the mixes Dunkin' used, and he worked out how to make powdered sugar stick to a doughnut. I still haven't encountered a decent explanation of why to...

The Soundtrack Album:

Jingle Bells, Batman Smells

The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen

Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow

December of Cambreadth

Santa Baby

Aside: December of Cambreadth is a parody of March of Cambreadth. Which is seriously not a Christmas song.

Re: More Stuff

Having made it both ways, I prefer the Hungarian approach. But it can be hard to find affordable paprika in that quantity in the US - try stores that cater to restaurants! Yeah. You can pay $4-$5 for a single small bottle of an ounce or two of the stuff at a supermarket, or you can pay about $2.50/...

Americans also have a weird compulsion to throw macaroni noodles and ground beef into goulash. I agree about the weird compulsion to throw pasta into everything*. However, the goulash recipes I've found all call for beef cut into small pieces, and ground beef certainly is in small pieces... * My la...

Re: More Stuff

Short of that sort of revelation, I'd think that some variant of a Hungarian goulash (gulyás) would probably work with either... stew them up with potatoes, sweet peppers, tomatoes, onions, maybe a bit of garlic, and whatever other veggies come to mind. Bigos (a Polish hunter's stew) might also be ...
