Is it already 1:30? I guess I should go to bed. Unfortunately, talk of food has me hungry.

You, too, thuja! Roe, go back to sleep! Did you just wake up in front of your computer with no idea how you got there?

Yes, I noticed that too. I can't sleep when its weathery out.

That 12:37 post is mmmmmmmmmmm good to read.

Have a good night Pywacket.

Y'all been huddled in your basements since 8:15?

Apples, peaches, pumpkin pie You were young and so was I.....

I baked sour cherry muffins today with a sprinkling of raw sugar/mace/ground coriander on top. Good warm with a slather of butter.

Love anything chocolate... any kind of pie (favorites: strawberry rhubarb, cherry, french silk, custard)... fresh strawberry shortcake.... brownies.... most ice cream or sorbet... carrot cake... cheesecake...

Best way to eat blueberry pie: heated with a big dollop of tapioca pudding.

I don't think round 2 is going to amount to much--if it even makes its way here. It has gotten cold out, though. Just took the dogs out and it was chilly.

Oh--and ketchup is mustard's hillbilly cousin. Not that I don't like it on a hamburger or fries... but mustard is delectable. Everything from plain, ol' yellow mustard to various strengths of stoneground browns, mustard with horseradish, and on to the fancier stuff... One favorite: Terrapin Ridge wasabi-lime mustard. Had it at Free State once and it was so good I had to find it online. I don't think they have it any more (at FS) but you can get it (and lots of other goodies) here: http://www.terrapinridge.com/

“Ladies and gentlemen please welcome the poet laureate of rock 'n' roll. The voice of the promise of the '60s counterculture. The guy who forced folk into bed with rock. Who donned makeup in the '70s and disappeared into a haze of substance abuse. Who emerged to find Jesus. Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s, and who suddenly shifted gears releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s. Ladies and gentlemen — Columbia recording artist Bob Dylan!”

Happy Birthday, Uncle Bob!

Mustard seeds (top left) may be ground (top right) to make different kinds of mustard. The other four mustards pictured are a simple table mustard with turmeric coloring (center left), a Bavarian sweet mustard (center right), a Dijon mustard (lower left), and a coarse French mustard made mainly from black mustard seeds (lower right).Mustard is a condiment made from the seeds of a mustard plant (white or yellow mustard, Sinapis hirta; brown or Indian mustard, Brassica juncea; or black mustard, Brassica nigra). The whole, ground, cracked, or bruised mustard seeds are mixed with water, vinegar or other liquids, and sometimes other flavorings and spices, to create a thick paste ranging in color from bright yellow to dark brown. Mustard often has a sharp, pungent flavor, as mixing the ground seed with cold liquid allows the enzyme myrosinase which it contains to act on glucosinolates also present to make isothiocyanates, responsible for mustard's characteristic heat.[1] Homemade mustards are often far hotter and more intensely flavored than commercial preparations.[2] A strong mustard can cause the eyes to water, sting the palate and inflame the nasal passages and throat. Mustard can also cause allergic reactions: since 2005, products in the European Union must be labelled as potential allergens if they contain mustard.[3] Commonly paired with meats and cheeses, mustard is also a popular addition to sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs. It is also used as an ingredient in many dressings, glazes, sauces, soups, and marinades; as a cream or a seed, mustard is used in the cuisine of India, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, northern Europe, the Balkan States, Asia, North America, and Africa,[4] making it one of the most popular and widely used spices and condiments in the world.

I always cook over briquets/hickory . . . on the rare occasion I am asked/(ordered) to grill. However . . . . As the Mrs does like to grill several times per week and has not had a grill to do so for about a month . . . a new propane grill was purchased and assembled this AM. Think I'll go get a DQ ice cream cake and wait for her to make me a sammich . . .

I think it was Hank Hill (King of the Hill) who said the only people who put ketchup on hot dogs are either from Oklahoma or had suffered a head injury at some point in their lives.

I'm a busy woman who needs to be able to grill some dinner and watch Game of Thrones without any trouble. Propane it is. At least I haven't lit corn husks on fire this week.

There is no way mustard is a condiment of the gods. It would definitely be left behind in the rapture. Ketchup would ascend to heaven where all the angels would put it on their corndogs.

A piece of really really good peach pie is the best. A piece of mediocre peach pie is the worst.

As to grilling & charcoal, I went over to the dark side & had a permanent line installed that runs to the grill from my 500 gallon household propane tank. Oh, yeah! Now, we're cookin.' Gotta have pecan wood & an offset fire, though, to do my brisket right. Takes all day & many beers to accomplish.

Mustard is good for what ails ya. I relish it.

" I also have read treatise on the unethical applications of condiments and I'm pretty sure it is illegal to eat a grilled hot dog without mustard."

Yep, right there next to, "No Ketchup shall be applied to any hot-dog, brat, weiner, or similar products."

Ms. Mathews, I feel it my duty to inform you that any information you have received in regard to the appropriate fuels for grills is in error and possibly sketchy at best.

Even Mr. Camping knows that propane and propane acessories are distributed to the misinformed and misguided public by agents of Satan.

On can only impart a true and original flavor to foods by cooking them on grills fueled by sublte combinations of charcoal and real wood. It's how my Daddy did it and his Daddy before him. That is how our ancestors did it. I also have read treatise on the unethical applications of condiments and I'm pretty sure it is illegal to eat a grilled hot dog without mustard.

Backoff Whitney... Bob is correct, charcoal and mustard, nectar of the gods. And don't sent some facebook poll to dispute this. However, anyone who eats Reeces peanut butter cups, is OK to me. Grilling brats with a cold beer, watching tornados, then finish off with Reeces, sounds like a good day.

You know what, Multi? I have never worn a helmet during severe weather. When the sirens went off Saturday, I took my wife and son up the hill to watch the fun (I already checked radar and saw there were no tornadic storms near where I was.) Now, I've been busy all morning and noticed our little torando outbreak day is getting started a bit early. Not the tornados, just the rain. I wonder if this will stabilize the atmosphere and I can grill brats for dinner. And, grilling on a damn charcoal heat. Not propane that lazy people with no taste buds use.

Autie wears a helmet, and likes to fish. Storm A is traveling East at a rate of 30 min per county. Bob wears a helmet and has a bunker. Storm A is currently 4 counties West of Town L. Snap wears a helmet and has a bunker. How long before Storm A kicks Town L's butt? And is it true that all men who wear helmets like crappie? Bonus points if you diagram your answer.

I like Diary Queen banana splits, hot fudge sundaes, or chocolate malts.

I also like cheese cake most any kind.

But, as with high fat meats, which I enjoyed even more then deserts, I do not get to eat that so much any more because excess sugars not burned off can increase my triglycerides …..

It's all relative. Depends on what he planned for the evening. Some evenings warrant a 5 star dessert. Others....not so much.
