All about food.

@Reg MM - Welcome! I wouldn't say we're exactly "foodies" in here, not in the modern sense, anyway. We seem to be reviving dishes we remember from childhood, and improving on them when we can. Or at least that's what the "Comfort Food" discussion is about.
@Randall, Have fun with your stir-fry. It's become my favorite way to crisp-cook veg; I never liked mushy ones...poor Mom didn't know any other way to cook veg, and I hated all of them...except her stuffed bell peppers. I'll eat ANYthing with bell peppers in it!
Poor Mom; she always overcooked Brussels sprouts...made the house smell like cheap cigars. I learned the right way from watching Julia Child. Cut a deep "X" in the stem end and boil or steam them for no more than 7 minutes. Perfect...still crunchy in the center, and no nasty smell in the kitchen. (If they are very large, I cut them in half lengthwise, and cook the same. Works fine.)
I went crazy and bought the 3-color (red, purple, yellow) fingerling potatoes when the Schwan's driver arrived Thursday. Haven't cooked them yet...they are already roasted and frozen, so all they need is to be baked for 25 minuted, or nuked for 10. Think I'll try baking some tonight.
Spud, I discovered a slice of cheese on my fried mush was "da bomb"!
Eggs: not only good to eat, but the best "glue" ever! Cakes, pies, cookies, etc., etc., all need eggs to somehow catalyze the mixtures. What a bonding agent!
I forget who mention stir-fry, but that's what I'm having for dinner tonight--with Yukon gold potatoes. Thanks.
Reg, Céad Míle Fáilte.
Reg, Welcome to Food! Bon appétit!
Good to have you here Reg.
Greetings all! Joan suggested I might find some fellow foodies over here in this corner of the world! I'm not only a foody in my heart but it's how I bring home the bacon (ha!) as well.
There were some weird-looking ducks in that place (it's huge)...white ducks with some mallard markings, and stuff like that. That was more than 60 years ago...
I think the county, or whoever is in charge of that place (it's actually part of the flood control system) removed all the abandoned animals about 40 or 50 years ago. Nobody asked what they did with them.
A duck dump lake. Funny!
Spud, You GOT it. Joe Penner was WAYYYY before my time, but adults in the neighborhood laughed when I was trying to find homes for all the damn mallard ducklings we had. Dad finally loaded a bunch of them up, and took them to a lake where other people had dumped their extra ducks.
Wikipedia says that Joe Penner was a zany comic, noted for his famed catchphrase, "Wanna buy a duck?". I get the idea that it was his signature phrase, and people in vaudeville used it at times as a humorous question, perhaps to elicit a smile or make a connection with another person. Is that close?
