Wumpy just informed me via private message that the Yucatan portion of Mexico isn't "real Mexican cuisine" but that his Tex-Mex faux Egyptian hybrid cesspool shit apparently is.

Viva Tejas!

Yucatan who?



Ps- please note ice cold Modello Especial in upper right corner

btw, I intend to question my neighbor who was born in Coahuila State about his opinion of Yucatan cuisine..but I have to wait until his hot 18yo son gets home to translate ;D

I see the Persian-Egyptians use melted Cheez Whiz instead of (white) queso blanco on their atrocious menu selections. I'm going to have to summon Rev. Moon for this one.

Coahuila State = LOL... that's like asking someone in Montana what they think of California. The metropolitan area of Philadelphia is twice the size of Coahuila State. Meanwhile the Yucatan peninsula has five Mexican states: Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Campeche, Tabasco and Chiapas.

The Persians definitely used velveeta melted "cheese" on that appalling dish that the Wumpetta seems to find so authentic. It reduces me to tears.

Wilhemina's culinary taste is on a downward spiral.  And I won't even comment on his geographic knowledge.  Not when he's about to ask someone who probably comes from Monclova about their opinion on the gastronomy of YucatŠn  :'(

Sad.

Tonight's dinner is Styker Farm antibiotic-free, (from pasture and forest raised pigs) pulled pork BBQ, guanciale-greased skillet cornbread made from organic, stone-ground coarse cornmeal and buttered with Parma, Italy butter; and a side of Brooklyn Brine maple bourbon pickles -- u jelly?

I've never seen you not eat dinner (sorry, I mean "suppah") later than 5 PM Central Time, like all godly Texans. You might as well freeze those Slovak disasters and head for the BK drive through.

[1905]
Formal dinner at 8PM (p. 6); "Formal luncheon is served as a rule at one, half-past one, or two o'clock--not later than the latter hour, lest it spoil the guest's appetite for dinner." (p. 36-7); "The modern supper is not, as a rule, the first and foremost object of an evening's entertainment, but is usually an adjunct to some other form of festivity, such as a theatre or card party, or reception. Among the exceptions to this are the so-called game, wine, and fish suppers, popular among the "men-folk." Suppers are of various degrees of formality--from the delightfuly informal chafing-dish "spread" to an affair scarcely less elaborate than the formal dinner...there is no variation from the general rules applying to those features of the formal dinner...[no specific time recommended ] (p. 42-43); .....
In America the six-o'clock dinner prevails very generally, and the "Five o'Clock Tea" custom has gained comparitively little foothold; it has been adopted by the leisure clases, and is also popular with the college girl, the bachelor maid, the artist, and the so-called Bohemian circle." (p. 53) ---Consolidated Library of Modern Cooking and Household Recipes, Christine Terhune Herrick [R.J. Bodmer Company:New York] 1905 , Volume 1: The Modern Hostess

In sum, American families in this period could be eating breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner (wealthy, priviledged), supper

So supper is after dinner, after the theatre, opera, or cards :)
Thus, supper clubs...

Mere blocks away (as in two blocks) I've mentioned the newly opened/revamped Boots & Saddle hipster club, which also has a back room for live performances. However, the front bar area is a separate hopping space that I recently visited last month, but at the time they were not yet offering a food menu. Well, now they are but it's not just some podunk brewbar grub, but top notch offerings that just got a lengthy raving review from our local City Paper. I can now hop up the street for a serving of braised beef cheeks rest on smashed celery root... my life is now forever changed. :P

And in other news, eight blocks north it's now been officially revealed that the ritziest yet luxury hotel/condo 40 story building will start construction next fall and be completed by 2016 -- this will change that entire area in a huge way.

I pissed my therapist off today by asking if he was "Indian" (due to the large dream catcher hanging on his wall), I was quickly rebuked and informed that "he was native american", and further was informed that there was a big difference between a dot and a feather.

I then asked if he was Commanche, I should have stopped while I was ahead.

anywhooo, I stopped by Popeyes and got me some chicken, and then went by my neighborhood bakery and aquired an oversized Belgian Chocolate Chip Cookie.

I'm attempting to fatten up for winter.

The chocolate "bar" (e.g. counters) at Blondel in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Its mostly just slabs of all different kinds of house made chocolate. They break off pieces and weigh it. 

No fountain required.  No matter what your preference, it all tastes like chocolate, not sugar, fat, and wax.

That looks awesome . I am guessing its better than the Fanny May or Russell Stover chocolate I have had . I love chocolate and have bought in Chicago in shops that made it there, I bet that was fancy chocolate and I didn't even know . I hate the waxy kind and love dark as well, no one around here likes dark chocolate like I do  .

Most chocolate feeds the the soul and one's feelings.
Sometimes I just want the double creme milk chocolate because its heaven.

But its the dark chocolate that has the most real cocoa that brings the health benefits.
I've heard that 60% isn't really enough.

For pleasure I can get with 66% up to 80%.  I always buy it with whole nuts inside because I like the mixture and nuts are healthy too.  That's usually 70% dark.

85% an 90% - well I'll eat it but its not a sugar fix thats for sure - you appreciate it the way you enjoy other strong foods and liquids, like espresso, whiskeys, revolting cheeses, dark fermented asian thingies, etc.

That looks awesome . I am guessing its better than the Fanny May or Russell Stover chocolate I have had . I love chocolate and have bought in Chicago in shops that made it there, I bet that was fancy chocolate and I didn't even know . I hate the waxy kind and love dark as well, no one around here likes dark chocolate like I do  .

Blondel is great. Its so expensive I don't go there very often. They have amazing chocolate dipped fruit. Every swiss city many shops that produce their own chocolate.  But the supermarkets have good mass market brands and some of these are easy to find in the states.   

I buy good mass market stuff and usually on sale. Also I buy the huge bars of it, cause I figured out I am less piggy with a huge bar than a normal bar, which one is tempted to eat entirely. I also very much like huge bars of the good baking chocolate, and I know there is similar in the States, like the 70% Bittersweet Ghirardelli.

Course, I like very sugary candies too, from the real bakeries, like perfect fruit jellies, toffees, caramels, truffles, and such, or macarons.

In the winter I do crave the simple dark chocolate fix mostly everyday just like coffee. 

When I started coming to Switzerland in the 80's and 90's I noticed that many young people in school would have chocolate and bread for a snack.  There is pain au chocolate of course, but many kids would pull out these smallish bars of chocolate and slices of bread and that was the snack in the morning at school. 

Eating habits and what people eat, how they eat, always changing.  I don't see it as much plain bread and chocolate anymore.  Also there was NO take-away coffee until very recently.  Now everyone has a cell phone in one hand and a coffee in the other.

The consumer reports tv show did a report on takeaway coffee and the results were NOT pretty.

Its christmas time and all the supermarkets have their christmas food special promotions. I broke down and bought a big pack of bio smoked Irish salmon because the price was so attractive.  I say broke down because I figured out that I only really enjoy wild smoked salmon, not farmed salmon.  Thankfully, there is one discount supermarket that does stock wild salmon at a reasonable price.  Well, dummy I should have listened to my gut. This bio salmon is mushy... Blech.

I actually enjoy dark chocolate quite often, at least a few times a week. Right now I am working on Ghirardelli Midnight Reverie 86%...



This is NOT your dads Hershey bar! It's a pretty stout taste, and not enjoyable unless you nibble it slowly. I can only do one square in a sitting.  It's rated pretty good for antioxidant flavanols. If I really want to pamper myself I have a bit of Merlot with it  ;)

I've tried I think a 92 or 96% cacao and frankly I could not get it down, even with a heavy wine.

I just made a dark chocolate cake, with dark chocolate frosting (all homemade), with shaved peppermint bark on top.

Also, Ms P is correct about seeing the butcher (wasn't that in this thread), to get different cuts of meat.  I shopped at the local (read NOT A CHAIN) supermarket, with locations only in Southwest Michigan and Northcentral Indiana.  I got a nice New York Strip roast from the butcher counter.  Will be cooking it probably after the first of the year.

MISS P NEWS ALERT: go buy Heluvagood Greek style yogurt dip in French Onion -- tastes like the real high fat stuff but is only 2.5g (off course, the Wavy Lays are still high in fat!)

This is how you heat the house up in 18F weather at night -- this now goes into the oven for 2.5 hours (I think I already spent an hour on the stove top)
