It always just showed up, a huge spread delivered by kitchen angels, like magic. And Grandpa did the honors.

somehow the perspective plus the open ceiling makes that thing look like it's 8-10 feet tall, and plotting to take over the world.

And after dinner, a rousing game of Mystery Date while listening to Folk records, while Bobby accompanies on his tiny guitar.

Dry turkey, everything tastes like cigarettes, and passive-aggressive comments about my hair/weight/clothes. Ah, memories of Thanksgiving at grandma's house. Technically it was grandpa's house, too, but he almost never spoke. Good times.

"two mince pies" - how the hell can we even tell the difference?! and the eggs...??!? *tapatap* ah, ok, it's supposed to be "breakfast" - which, then, being on top is 100% suited to the fashionable person eating directly from the can.

although... last night I did a baked rigatoni, kinda-sorta lasagna style, with 2 repeating strata, each consisting of: sauce, pasta, sauteed seasoned TVP, spinach, queso fresco + mild cheddar (sosumi, that's the only cheese we had en cucina) - so I'm hardly one to talk.

and now I almost wish I'd put some eggs in there, uova in purgatorio / shakshuka style.

plus, those canned abominations are actually something I would really like to at least try once!

We always had cabbage rolls. They are a divisive dish at the best of times but I'm sure at some point lives may have been lost serving them for Thanksgiving dinner.
 
2020-11-24 8:59:54 AM  
Any idea where the video originated?  I'm assuming they're picking cabbage.  You don't see cabbage in very many families' traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

And, am I wrong, or is the machine moving towards the pickers?

speaking of divisive, lol... stealing my own comment from last week:

but also, I'm just getting an extra kick out of that CSB, because yesterday my MIL was making galumpki. now, as a child of Ukraine, I have inhaled so many holubtsi/golabki in my lifetime, I farking love the stuff personally.
and yet last night...
$mai_waifu: "mom said she's making galumpgy WAAAH I HATE THAT STUFF SO MUCH!!!"
me: but you're obsessed with those grape leaves from Bell's Market it's almost the same thing.
her: "but I hate cabbage so much!"
me: ...you mean like how much you hated the Colcannon I made with cabbage, so much so that I had to make it literally 3 more times this past summer?
her: "well... I used to hate galumpkis when we were little!"

...and then today?
her: "O-M-G...  that galumpgy was SO amazingly delicious .  I can't believe I used to refuse to eat these!!!  And there was homemade mashed potatoes with it.  So good!"

(Narrator: local woman regrets missing out on 40 years of cabbage rolls, news at 11.)


also, when she said, "I hate that stuff so much" ... ha ha ha, apparently when she was little she "hated" it so much, that she had never even tried it... not even once. but now she's obsessed with the things, which makes me happy. hm, I should probably make some this week.

My wife is the same she is worse than a kid when it comes to trying new foods. I did get her to try spaetzle and she likes it but that's about as adventurous as she is willing to get.

I've gotten mine to branch out from well-done meat and potatoes over the 17 years we've been together. I myself am basically Andrew Zimmern in that I'll try anything with little anxiety.
But my kids are the two pickiest human beings I've ever dealt with. I've tried every trick I know to get them just to try things to no avail. I'm hoping peer pressure is what eventually expands their pallets. One can only survive on chicken strips, pepperoni pizza, and plain beef patties for so long.

Short Victoria's War: /the dog can have kibble


Oh come on, treat the very good boy for a change. Now our strange cats will have kibble because getting them to eat anything else is mostly futile. Fancy Feast (aka as kitty crack)? Nah. They prefer kibble. Salmon? Nah. Kibble, please. Crunchy treats? Ehhh. They're not completely terrible, but kibble is better. Weird farking cats.

My parents, who spent long years trying to get me to expand my palate when I was a kid, steadfastly refuse to try sushi because "ewww, raw fish". The wife and I have repeatedly encouraged them and talked up how tasty it can be to no avail. Nothing will overcome "ewww, raw fish". I guess it's a pretty common reaction from older folks.

Maybe I'm starting to get old, but I see the posture on all the workers in the video and I cringe.  My back would be wrecked for weeks if I spent just one day with my back curved like that to pick up lettuce.

/That looks like a tough job

My dog always wonders why we are cooking all that lovely raw meat.

There was a delightful collision of middle-class ignorance and reality on my local NextDoor (yeah yeah, I lurk for free shiat and where the fires are and such) back in spring.  Because of the plague, a local farmworker's aid organization posted a request for masks... and gallon bottles of water, because they were hard to come by with the hoarding.

Giant, GIANT, thread erupted on "but there are minimum wage laws!" "mandatory lunch breaks!" "what do you mean they don't have plumbing and restrooms!" and more before it was memoryholed.  Yo', Karens, you drive by the fields every day to get to your yoga class and pedicure... ever notice all the guys out there hunched over working nonstop to pick your lettuces?  Ever see a break room?  How, exactly, do you think your locally grown artisanal raddichio heads $1 each?

But I clicked into this thread hoping there was finally a decent public safety messaging campaign starting about T'giving... but no.  So I'll throw it out there:

FFS, Farkers, if you *have* to have Thanksgiving, please buy a pre-made complete dinner cooked by professionals (Costco is awesome, local grocery stores are ~usually~ fine, hopefully local restaurants realize they could find some revenue offering ready-for-pick-up feasts... we could be using this as a way to provide support to them, but nooooo.  That's socialism. Or. Something.) and eat outside.  Bundle up if you have to.  Cooking together in the kitchen might even be worse than eating at the same table when it comes to transmission... and whothefark knows if Cousin Edna is going to wash her hands and wear a mask and hairnet when she makes her Jello Salad Delight.

Or, you know, stay safe, stay home, stay within your own household exposure circle, and be angry that this is even an issue.  As we all should damned well be.

263,990 dead Americans, SO FAR.  And winter is going to be *brutal*.  Thanks, MAGAts.

funny you should mention spaetzle! one of my other favorite childhood foods is haluski, the Pittsburgh abomination of actual Ukrainian halushka. the reductive bastardized version is truly lazy and simple, and I love it: sautee cabbage (and maybe onion too if you're feeling fancy) in butter, boil some wide egg noodles, combine. salt and pepper, done. Mrs. "but I hate cabbage" ... loves the stuff.

but yeah actual halushka is exactly akin to spaetzle. it is so surreally beloved that people build statues to it?
