    Well, I can't really answer that objectively, because I'm not a fan of pickled stuff in general.

    But we're a weird giant German Catholic clan, so we've generally got a sample size of between fifty and seventy people at Christmas. And about four of them regularly partake of the Christmas picklemeats, and they're the four most likely to do something out of spite and pride rather than honest enjoyment.

    So no. No, statistically speaking, it's not very good at all.

    I'd eat pickled grandpa weiners.

    Wait...

    @NightDragon you should make our vegan eggnog again :p

    It wasn't vegan! We really did use egg whites, but I think everything else was non-standard hahaha. It was bizarrely delicious and rich though :P

    did we? I thought we were out of eggs ... soy milk and coconut cream though, right?

    Last time I made eggnog it was fucking delicious but also inexplicably way stronger than it should have been for its alcohol content. There was maybe a thimbleful of brandy per glass but it still knocked me on my arse for the best part of an hour.

    Nice Job! Most people overcook lengua until it's like shredded beef, but you did it right. It's even better as soft little cubes of deliciousness. Next time before dunking them in sauce, I suggest frying them in a hot pan to get the exteriors really crispy, too.

    they're basically just straight cinnamon twists right?

    The only reason I know that is because my favorite restaurant has a window to the kitchen and one time I was sitting next to the window one of the prep cooks was stuffing the thing full of dough and then extruding churros the length of her hand to fill up a tray. The link posted looks pretty similar to the one they were using so I guess it can do any number of special purposes.

    My Mum does this, and I also caught her using a partially broken, jagged knife to move stuff around in a nonstick pan. She did not understand why it made me so angry.

    What I don’t get is that I know a couple who’s all about organic and shit because of toxins and crap but here they are, scrap scrap scrapping Teflon into their food. I explain to them that once Teflon is in you, it ain coming out, and they should use the appropriate tools. The just shrug their shoulders and continue to scramble their eggs with a metal fork on a Teflon coated pan.

    I've recently come around to realize just how good mushrooms can be in a sandwich. For dinner tonight I made myself a sandwich with some chopped and sautee'd mushrooms, browned onions, and cheese, and it was delicious. Didn't need any meat at all for it to be filling and to get a nice meaty taste to it. I think I'm gonna experiment more with mushrooms when making lunches for myself in the future, because it's such a good ingredient. Pretty light, too.

    My brother hates mushrooms, so all the more for me, I guess.

    I'm making shepherd's pie for dinner. Sort of.
    I'm using left over mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes, and some left over cubed steak that I've chopped up instead of the more common ground beef, and the only vegetables I had on hand were som frozen peas, so in they go.

    Worst case scenario: I'm out of leftovers and have learned a valuable lesson regarding substituting not potatoes for potatoes.

    But it's smelling pretty tasty, so, fingers crossed.

    Edit:
    Turned out really tasty. I may have left it under the broiler for a bit longer than I should have, just wanted to get a little bit of toastiness on top.

    Think I'll consider this one a success.

    I bought this one a couple of years ago and it is still doing a good job. I googled articles of top pepper grinders while I was in a Bed, Bath & Beyond and they had this one in stock.

    Got invited to a Friendsgiving next weekend! I'm bringing tiramisu and two loaves of bread, one of Rose Levy Beranbaum's basic sandwich loaf and one of her cinnamon spiral bread. Since I moved into town from the sticks, I should be able to get them from oven to table in ten minutes flat.

    I made 6 thoroughly mediocre chicken pot pies tonight. The only reason I'm even mentioning it is because though I needed more seasonings and more cream, I NAILED gluten free crust! It was light, flaky, and delicious and I'm proud of myself

    Update on the low carb shepherd's pie I mentioned above.
    It was even better the second night.

    Sadly, I am now out of shepherd's pie. But, it was easy and tasty enough to make again.
