From memory, badly browned gray ground beef, R12.

No shepherds are used.

Oddly enough, green beans and tomatoes are layered and the potato top may have melted fake orange cheese.

by Anonymousreply 13March 8, 2024 8:45 PM

R12 I'm here! I made it with ground beef. After draining the beef I mixed in 2 TB of tomato paste, some beef broth,and sprinkled thyme, basil, rosemary, garlic and onion powder, and salt and pepper, and of course the mixed frozen vegetables.

Then for the instant potatoes I mixed in 3 TB of butter and on the top I sprinkled parmesan cheese, all-purpose French seasoning, and basil. I didn't use fresh herbs, just what I had in the spice rack.

I baked it at 400° for 25 minutes. It is so good!

I've decided to proceed with my refrigerator comment meant for the previous thread:

Many years ago, I dated for a short while a guy who was raised in a Catholic orphanage. His job at the orphanage was to clean and organize the refrigerators. There were specific written procedures for the cleaning and diagrams for where the food items were to be placed. If the protocol wasn't followed there would be hell to pay. This was ingrained in him.

Each time he came to my house he would go in my fridge and start organizing. It was infuriating and asking him to stop fell on deaf ears. I was constantly having to rearrange my fridge back to the way I wanted it after he left. My heart broke for him. On CHRISTMAS EVE when he was six years old, he was taken away by CPS because his alcoholic mother never came home after work and he and his brothers went knocking on neighbors' doors looking for food. He ran away from the orphanage when he was 15 or 16 and worked in bath houses in North Jersey until he was 18.

Anyway, whenever I clean and organize my fridge he crosses my mind and I hope that life turned out okay for him.

by Anonymousreply 19March 8, 2024 9:55 PM

R19, I'm curious as to how he organized the refrigerator, especially if it was a Catholic thing. (I went to Catholic school and that's why I know how to diagram sentences. So, I'm thinking there must be some good reasoning behind how Catholics organize refrigerators.)

Do you remember how he organized your refrigerator?

by Anonymousreply 20March 8, 2024 10:01 PM

I may have been raised in a Catholic orphanage.

The refrigerator training came in handy when I began my career as a bathhouse attendant; informational pamphlets on top, clean jizz rags on second shelf, sealed condoms below that, and finally Lube bottles.

R44 Try something else. I cycled through 15 meds over five years before finding what worked well enough to offset any side effects. In my case that was Wellbutrin which had no noticeable side effects. It was like slipping into a warm blanket back then. Nothing else until then (this was 20-plus years ago) worked like that. I've been on it, stably, for 15 years. Its effects now are so subtle I proposed halving the dose the last time I saw my PCP to see if I still need that much or even none. But everybody's different and it can be a long slog to find what works for you. Good luck finding what works because there are so many to work with.

They were next to the napkins. I bought a box.

Speaking of Irish soda bread, earlier this week I was standing in line at the Post Office and a retiree came in, bypassed the line and went straight up to the counter and gave the Post Worker Irish soda bread he baked.

Apparently, the last time he was in the Post Office they discussed Irish soda bread and she mentioned she had never tried it.

The look Postal Worker exchanged with her co-worker after he left gave me the impression she would not be eating said bread.

In general, you take a big chance when you give homemade food to strangers especially post COVID.

She looked like Brett Butler (present day, not in her youth) and sounded like her too. He looked like John Mahoney from Frasier.

My grandmother always made soda,bread. It was flat bread. We’d cut it into wedges, split each wedge in half and toast it. Then drench with butter.

I walked past a bakery when I moved to NYC that had a big sign “IRISH SODA BREAD.” It looked nothing like my grandmothers soda bread. It was dome shaped.

Years later I found out what my grandmother called “soda bread” was actually called “farls” but farls sounded funny to Americans so she called it soda bread. Haven’t had it since she died.

I came across this years ago. Maybe if I want to spend $30 on shipping I’ll get it someday. But I don’t think so,

Update to my previous comment about falling down a rabbit hole of watching Craig Ferguson's old late night show:

I've never been a Lauren Graham fan but she was on Craig's show thirteen times and she's funny and had great banter with Craig so I want to like her now. But I've read here on DL she's not very nice in real life. I'm so conflicted.

There's a Youtuber who has compiled celebrities' multiple appearances on Craig's show into one video for that celebrity. I also just watched Lisa Kudrow's fourteen appearances and she too had great banter back and forth with Craig and obviously likes Craig very much. Other compilation videos: Hot In Cleveland ladies, Brooke Shields, Mila Kunis plus more. Youtuber: The Jayleno Fly

In my case, my house is on the corner and they are leaving the packages at my side sunroom door which is visible and accessible from the next street. It saves them having to drive around the corner and leave packages at my front. The person on next street oddly often receives packages same day as I do and they deliver to them first and then walk over and leave mine at the door of a room I never use. It's seems bizarre to me to choose that door, even in front of the garage would make more sense.

Here's my guess. Flat eyebrows tend to be a masculine trait. Arched eyebrows are more feminine.

Flat eyebrows are associated with lack of feeling. Arched eyebrows are associated with some show of emotion, whether happy or evil.

Hetero men would be more attracted to a feminine-looking woman, i.e., a woman with arched brows. Hetero couples then procreate, due to the attraction.

I had oral surgery Tuesday (two implant posts screwed into my jaw) for which the oral surgeon gave me lots of serious pain meds. He said max inflammation and hence max pain would be 72 hours later meaning tomorrow, Friday, and that I would likely have more pain than usual because the implants are next to each other. I took the meds as soon as I got them Tuesday afternoon and that evening, along with the antibiotics he prescribed, slept well that night and have had zero pain since.

Not sure whether I have a great dentist or a high tolerance for pain but I feel fine 48 hours later.

To dog-owners - Can dogs develop a crush on a human?

I do love dogs. I don't own one and have no other pets.

When my boyfriend and I take our daily walks, our neighbor's dog makes a big fuss over me. I pet him, murmur sweet-nothings to him. He ignores my partner, although my partner has also paid him that type of attention.

My boyfriend and I tried an experiment.

One time, I stayed back, while my partner gave him attention. The dog stopped reacting to my boyfriend, looked over at me and whimpered, seemingly letting me know that he wasn't pleased with my hanging back.

Then, on our next walk, my boyfriend stayed back while I gave him attention and he never looked over to my boyfriend.

"Milo has a crush on you.", my boyfriend said. "Dogs can't develop a crush on a human", I replied.

Have you ever seen your dogs react to a certain person like they have or crush? Or, as long as I'm asking, an animosity to a certain person?

It must be very stressful to be a member of the Japanese Royal (Imperial?) family.

Empress Masako was under so much stress to produce an heir that she had to retreat from public life and was diagnosed with "adjustment disorder". Is that code for nervous breakdown? She was an accomplished diplomat who spoke several languages prior to marriage. After marriage she had to ask permission to visit her parents or to have lunch with her friends. She got in trouble for speaking English to Bill Clinton as it was considered showing up her husband or some such nonsense. She finally had a daughter who can't reign, it will go to her male cousin.

Her sister-in-law Princess Kiko suffers from some kind of gastrointestinal problems and hasn't been seen in public and Kiko's daughter said fcuk this shit and moved to NYC with her shaggy haired commoner husband.

These cloistered, stressed out Japanese royal women should form a support group with failed runaway bride Charlene of Monaco.

I traveled to Tennessee for the 2017 eclipse. I was, appropriately, underwhelmed. It was cool. I was glad I saw it, but all the people taking about how profound and life-changing it would be built it up too much. And the darkness was more like twilight than the midnight I was expecting.

Had some good barbecue. Went to Dollywood, but didn’t go in.

Today has been an odd day, it must be effects from the eclipse. A guy down the street who I only know from saying hello when he's out walking, stopped when I was outside cleaning up branches and limbs from the last bad storm a few days ago. There was one limb the size of a small tree and he told me he'd stop by in the afternoon to saw it for me. I assumed he meant a chainsaw but no it was a hand saw. I told him I could do that but he insisted. He even put the wood in his truck and took it to the dump. I offered to pay him but he wouldn't hear of it. Unexpected luck.

My indica tincture, brewed yesterday in the Magic Butter Machine, is both under- and over-whelming.

First you have to find Everclear (190 proof) which not every liquor store sells, then cut up all the little child-proof bags of flower and grind an ounce or two to decarboxylate it in the oven for half an hour and let it cool before dumping it all in machine and wait for four hours as it turns toasted marijuana and grain alcohol into tincture. It sounds like a lot of work, but it’s more waiting than working with plenty of time to do other things as it cooks. Underwhelming and now I’m done for a month.

Overwhelming in that the potency feels pretty strong. I had a scant half a teaspoon in an Oringina last night and slept for 10 hours.

by Anonymousreply 571April 11, 2024 12:23 PM

I did that exact thing years ago. Didn’t really have much luck putting the tincture under my tongue. I can add it to beverages, but it tastes nasty. Might as well buy edibles. So I still have the tincture years later.

by Anonymousreply 572April 11, 2024 12:28 PM

It burns under the tongue. I was surprised but found the Orangina a good cover for the flavor. San Pelegríno makes some fruit seltzers that also work. A slice of lime in the glass might have helped too, but mostly I like it because I know what’s in it and know I sterilized the jars it’s stored it.

Overheard yesterday as my office overlooks and thus overhears our neighbors’s backyard when the windows are open. The dad is raking winter detritus from the shrubs and the lawn as his 2 or 3 year-old daughter runs out to the deck barefoot shouting, “I poo-ed! I poo-ed!,” apparently for the first time on her own.

He congratulated her and she ran back in the house, presumably to share her good news with others.

I thought my insurance would cover Mounjaro but it says I have to have tried other things first along with qualify as diabetic. My A1C is low and I don't know anything about Metformin. I will have to lose weight the old fashioned way. Watch my calories/food intake, exercise, and quit drinking. I can do this. I've done it before; I have to find the mental strength to do it again.
