All this from a maximum amount of 4 inches?  That's going to be mostly gone by noon?

I've never had it with rice or noodles.  When the Germans served it, it came in a bowl and had a spoon with it.  And one of those hard rolls that will knock you out if you were hit with it but was so soft and good on the inside.

Hex, you're idea doesn't sound too bad.  I'm just trying to picture the sweet in the dish I remember.  Let us know how it turns out if/when you try it.

BillWitt, now I'm jealous.  I was going to make a pot on the 23rd and let it set in the 'fridge until the 24th, but now I may have to rush things.

SG!  Cold cereal?  Were you in a hurry?





I was tired.  Cooking takes work!

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

[QUOTE=sacrificialgoddess;949831]I was tired.  Cooking takes work![/QUOTE]LOL!!  Okay, I understand.  I enjoy cooking but you're right... it is work and best done when you're not tired and when you have the time to do things right.

Snow in the Big Easy, and 70° here in Eastern Virginia. I doubt I'll ever figure out weather patterns.

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." -- General Smedley Butler: War is a Racket (1935)

"War is mankind's most tragic and stupid folly; to seek or advise its deliberate provocation is a black crime against all men. Though you follow the trade of the warrior, you do so in the spirit of Washington — not of Genghis Khan. For Americans, only threat to our way of life justifies resort to conflict." - General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower: Graduation Exercises at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, USA at 3 June 1947

itty wanders in, sits down next to the fireplace, gets out marshmallows and sticks to roast them on....she puts them between her and IP....she spears a couple of marshmallows on her stick and begins to roast them...

I just read those articles. I am amazed. Around here four inches is just part of the deal. If I were there in more than cyberspace I would have my Frieghtliner parked and be waiting for the roads to clear. I KNOW I can drive in snow. I worry about people in that part of the world who can't. Safe is always better than sorry. :)

itty slowy turns her marshmallows until they are a nice golden brown...she pops them in her mouth and spears some more....this is a good day for friends to share a marshmallow roast....

The midwest has much to offer at this time of year. In places that have the snow and cold we can ski, go sledding and walk in a winter wonderland. We can also get dressed as warmly as possible then head out into the icy blasts of an artic express, do our chores and skeddadle back into the warmth. There we can sit in the luxury of warmth, sip hot chocolate and watch the storm. I like days like that. I make a lot of homemade soups in the winter. Something about a cold, snowy day and soup just go together well. :D

I acutally prefer colder weather to hot.  Even if the power were to go out, I can always find a way to warm up - by putting on more clothes, building a fire, or doing something active.  When I get hot, the only thing that helps is an air-conditioner.  Once you're naked, you're naked.  There's nothing else to take off to get cooler!

I ended up in one heck of a place for that, didn't I?  I bounced around a lot growing up.  Most of my time was spent in Germany with side-trips to places like North Dakota, Missouri, Kentucky... very few that saw hot and humid weather.  Then - BANG!!!  Right slap dab in the middle of Louisiana.

If I could live where I wanted, I'd spend the winters at the beach and summers in the cool mountains. While I like four seasons and my least favorite season is a hot and humid Southern summer, I had a belly full of winter when I lived in the mountains. For about 6 weeks each year I couldn't get a car anywhere near my house and had to hike up the mountain - and pull my groceries in and the garbage out on a sled. I really loathed doing that! Slipping and sliding on the ice...Ice is the worst.

My neighbor owned the barn and wouldn't fix the water pipes so it always froze for those same 6 weeks. You have not lived until you have hauled water from a creek for your horses - lets not forget the ice on the creek! -up an embankment, sloshing the icy water into your boots. Ah! Memories.
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius
