The Thought For Today

"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church; the Jews called it "Hanukkah" and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukkah!" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall!"" - Dave Barry

6 Types of Salt and How to Use Them

"Knowing the difference between Kosher and sea salt can make a world of difference in your dishes. Here, six easy-to-find varieties, with tips on when and where to sprinkle them." Things you need to know...

Labels:

Rec: Kosher Salmon Pancakes

1 large can red or pink salmon, drained
3 eggs
1/2 cup matzo meal
3 medium onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons light sour cream
3 to 4 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
dash of salt and pepper


Combine and mix the salmon, eggs, matzo meal, 1 chopped
onion, sour cream, and salt & pepper in large bowl. Form
small to medium pancakes. Heat oil in frying pan, place
pancakes in pan. Cook uncovered over MEDIUM heat
until crisp, flipping often. Fry the 2 remaining chopped
onions separately in pan then spoon over pancakes.


Serves 2

Rec: Kosher Sweet & Sour Braised Brisket

1 small beef brisket
2 1/2 dates, pitted(such as Medjool)
1 cup chicken broth
1 5/8 large garlic cloves, Peeled
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
12 7/8 ozs sweet onions
8 large shallots
7 1/4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup tomato puree
1/2 cup orange juice



Brown the brisket in a large frying pan coated with 2
tablespoons of the olive oil for 5 to 10 minutes per side.
Place the brisket fat side up into a deep roasting pan.
Slice the onions thinly and sauté them in the same
frying pan with 2 more tablespoons of olive oil until
golden brown. Cover the brisket with the sautéed onions.
Sauté the shallots in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive
oil then set aside until later. Deglaze the frying pan with
the chicken stock, then pour the stock over the brisket.
Mix the dates, garlic, cloves, orange juice and tomato
puree in a blender or food processor until liquefied. Pour
this mixture over the brisket, cover tightly with aluminum
foil and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 2 1/2
hours. Uncover, add the shallots, re-cover and bake an
additional 1 1/2 hours or until done, removing the cover
for the last 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the brisket from
the pan, reserving the juices, onions and shallots in the pan.
For a little added flavor, you can place just the brisket on
a grill, with wood smoking chips, for 10 to 15 minutes if
desired. Let the brisket stand for 15 to 30 minutes so
that its juices can re-distribute. Slice thinly. Use the
reserved braising liquid along with the shallots and
onions for a serving sauce. Great with Kasha and veggies!

Rec: Kosher Perfect Matzo Balls

For soft matzo balls
1 cup matzo meal
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons oil or melted schmaltz(chicken fat)
2 teaspoons baking powder


For firm matzo balls the above plus
4 tablespoons water or broth
baking powder(delete for firm matzo balls)


Optional Ingredients --- all, some or none
1 teaspoon onion powder (optional)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
1 tablespoon dried parsley (optional)
1 teaspoon dill weed (optional)
1/2 teaspoon pepper (optional



Follow these instructions carefully.
Measure and mix dry ingredients into a bowl.
Individually break the eggs into a clear glass,
discarding any with blood spots, and then pour into
a second bowl. Add oil or schmaltz (and water or
broth for firm matzo balls) to the eggs and stir gently
with a fork until the yolks are broken and the oil just
mixed. Pour egg mixture into the dry mixture and
gently mix with the fork. DO NOT OVER MIX.
Treat it like a muffin mixture; if you over mix they
will be tough. Place in the fridge for 1 hour. Bring a
large pot of water to a rolling boil on the stove. After
matzo ball mix has set, gently remove teaspoon fulls
of the batter and roll into 1 to 2" balls and drop into the
water. When all the balls are in the water leave it to boil
until all the balls float to the top, then lower the
temperature to a rolling simmer for 40 minutes and
your matzo balls will be ready. DO NOT STIR AT ANY
TIME. The matzo balls may be removed from the water
with a slotted spoon and served in soup, with a stew,
as a side dish with gravy or placed on a cookie sheet
and frozen covered for a later use.


Makes 18 to 24 Matzo Balls

The Hard Truth From Orlando

The Michael Brown case: I did not see how the grand jury could indict the officer. Even if he went to trial, the prosecutor could not win. Just the video of Michael Brown’s violent behavior at the earlier shoplifting incident would create reasonable doubt at a trial and the officer would be acquitted.
I'm telling you now and I would tell the protestors across the country -- they have absolutely no concept of the kind of irrational, erratic, arbitrary, dangerous violence that is prevalent in some neighborhoods. Michael Brown was 18 years old, big, violent, full of himself and belligerently stupid. Any normal civil teenager of any race first would not be threatening store owners and stealing. Any normal civil teenager of any race would have been walking on the sidewalk, but if being a twit-head and walking in the street, when asked by a police officer to get to the sidewalk (however he put it), would’ve said, okay, and moved his butt to the sidewalk. Michael Brown was not raised to comply. He was not raised to recognize anything but his own strength and so he mouths off, goes after the police officer to keep the officer from getting out of his car (and probably knows he’s being sought for the earlier theft), punches the officer, tries to evade and then goes bug-nuts again when told to stop.
And the same culture of violent idiocy that spawned him then burned his part of town, including the store that Michael Brown victimized just before he was confronted by the police. It’s a culture of blind incomprehension clashing with a culture of frustration on the other side.
And I find it ironic that everyone was beating up on law enforcement and the governor about having so many folks on standby – like having them there is going to provoke violence. But then, the predicted (and some would say inevitable) violence, looting and lawlessness breaks out and now they’re upset because the police/law enforcement weren’t standing right there to stop it. They always want it both ways.
When they rioted in Liberty City, it was never rebuilt. Watts was never rebuilt. The #1 rule of criminal thinking is: does not learn from experience. Well, here it is again. SSDD.

Overheard in Athens

There are many "over heard" sites. Just run "overheardin" through a search engine and you'll come across quite a few. This one from Athens, Georgia, which centers around college kids, is the funniest. (I wouldn't mind a little translation on the Dublin site, though. And it would be nice to know what a "Sorostitute" is in Athens.)

Welcome to Improbable Island

Welcome to Improbable Island


Well it's Weird Friday again and I have no idea what to say about this Post, so I'll quote them. "You've been drafted into a war against a machine called the Improbability Drive. It lives somewhere in the jungle, over there. Improbability is leaking out of this bloody thing like radiation, so we've got to blow it up. The whole war is being televised, you've noticed the cameras already, so try not to do anything stupid while the world watches. Your head hurts because the guys who burst into your living room with sticks and a great big sack probably hit you a bit too hard, and you might have landed badly when they tossed you out of the plane. You survived the fall without a parachute because of the Improbability Bubble surrounding the island, which makes the air notably denser about forty feet above sea level. You're naked and unarmed because everything that penetrates the Improbability Bubble gets changed in rather amusing ways, and we didn't want to take that risk. There's blood on my boots because I came across some monsters on the way over here - yes, monsters, stop gawping, you'll get used to them - and you'll either pick up the rest as you go along, or you'll die in a very entertaining fashion." She smiles. "Either way, it'll make for great television."

Veterans Day

"This day is called the Feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day and comes safe home
Will stand a-tiptoe when this day is named
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall see this day and live t' old age
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours
And say, "Tomorrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words —
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester —
Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.
This story shall the good man teach his son,
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered,
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition.
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon
Saint Crispin's Day."

Rec: Crockpot Scotch Broth Soup

2 lbs lamb, diced
1/2 cup pearl barley
1 large onion, chopped
4 celery ribs, sliced
4 carrots, chopped
1 cup diced rutabaga
8 cups water
4 beef bouillon cubes
2 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Cover and cook on
LOW 8 to 10 hours or cook on HIGH 5 to 6 hours.

Serves 4 to 6
Refrigerate remainder
Can be reheated in microwave

Labels: , , ,

Rec: Redcurrant And Honey Glazed Lamb

4 to 5 lbs leg of lamb
4 to 5 tablespoons red currant jelly
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 to 4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed or 3 teaspoons garlic powder
salt
black pepper


If the leg of lamb is too big for your crock-pot, cut through
the joint between the main leg and shank. Put 2 tablespoons
water into the crockpot and place the lamb inside. Spoon
the honey, Dijon mustard and redcurrant jelly over the top
of the lamb. Sprinkle the crushed garlic/powdered garlic,
salt and black pepper over the top of the lamb. Cook on
HIGH for at least 6 hours and up to 8 hours. If it is a 4lb
to 5 lb leg of lamb, these are the perfect timings - it falls
off the bone and is moist and tender. About 30 minutes
before serving, carefully ladle most of the juices out of the
crockpot and into a large mixing jug. Allow the juices to
cool and skim the fat that rises to the surface. Place the
juices into a saucepan and bring to the boil, boil vigorously
until it has reduced by about a half - you now have the
most wonderful gravy or sauce to serve alongside the lamb.
Take the lamb out and allow to "rest" for about 10 to 15
minutes before carving.

TV Horror Hosts - Part 2

Part 2 in my series of paying homage to the TV Horror Hosts of years past.

Did you know, the first TV Horror Host was Maila Numi aka Vampira in 1954. Her amazing hourglass figure was more pronounces because she had her lower ribs removed. Her show was cancelled after a year because she wanted to get paid and the TV station (KABC) countered with a demand that they owned the rights to the character.

Vampira probably would have been forgotten if not for Ed Wood and his famous Plan 9 From Outer Space.

TV Horror Hosts - Part 1

After reading an article in the HorrorHound magazine, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic. They ran a short bit on the TV horror hosts of years past. I remember the days long gone when I used to wait anxiously for late Saturday night to flip on Channel 3 in Philadelphia to watch "Saturday Night Dead" hosted by Stella, the giant cleavage femme fatal whose campiness and low cut, skin tight black gowns got all teenage boys cranked up and then she hosted some of the best B films ever made. And before her time, of course, was Dr. Shock. Back in the day when I watched these demented creatures on a console TV which pulled in about 10 or 12 channels from the antenna on the roof.

The video age slowly killed these icons. The early mom and pop video stores of the '80s had great selections of genere film and B films, which were killed by the big box rental places, which are now all closing due to the internet. And I do find the internet to be a great source to find rare gems, but the net can never replace the iconic horror host. Even now, with 200+ channels from my satellite TV and a horror channel (Chiller), none of them have a decent Friday or Saturday night line up of great B horror/SF films with a schlock host. Damn wished they did. I'd put down the computer to watch it.

All that being said, the above link is the first of 4 or 5 places I've found on the web that pay homage to the great TV Horror Hosts of days past.

Rec: Ultimate Cheeseburger

2 pounds cold freshly ground beef chuck, 80 percent lean
1/3 cup ice-cold water
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 to 5 ounces cold Cheddar, Swiss, jack, or blue cheese, shredded or crumbled
Butter for the rolls (optional)
6 crusty yet soft rolls, such as kaiser, split


Light a grill for direct medium-high heat, about 425 degrees F. Using your hands and a light touch, mix together the beef, water, salt, pepper, and cheese. Gently shape into 6 patties no more than 1 inch thick. Refrigerate the burgers until the grill is ready. Brush the grill grate and coat with oil. Put the burgers directly over the heat, cover, and grill for 7 minutes, flipping after about 4 minutes for medium-done (150 degrees F, slightly pink). Add a minute per side for well-done. Avoid pressing down on the burgers, which squeezes out moisture and makes them dry. If you like, butter the rolls before grilling. Grill the rolls, cut sides down, directly over the heat until toasted, about 1 minute. If serving the burgers directly from the grill, serve on the buns. If the burgers will sit, even for a few minutes, keep the rolls and burgers separate until just before eating.

Serves 6

Rec: Meatball Subs

1 clove garlic
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
4 ozs Parmesan cheese, cut into chunks
1 medium onion, halved
1 lb lean ground beef or turkey
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 cups tomato sauce or bottled spaghetti sauce
4 sub rolls



With a food processor running, put the garlic, parsley,
and Parmesan through the feed tube. When they are
finely chopped, add the onion and process until grated.
Transfer to a large bowl. Add the beef, bread crumbs,
egg, salt, and pepper. Form the mixture into 12
meatballs. In a large saucepan, bring the tomato
sauce to a boil. Add the meatballs and let the sauce
return to a boil. Simmer gently for 30 minutes,
turning the meatballs in the pan, or until they are
cooked through. Halve the sub rolls, though not all
the way through. Toast them until golden. Spoon
the meatballs into the rolls, add sauce, and serve
at once.
