Gun Purchases…what?

I heard a radio ad for a gun company selling to Californians…..the ad actually said “So buy NOW, avoid the holiday rush with all the crazies!”

Would that mean CRAZY GUN BUYERS?   CRAZY?   I thought they could have left that term out, don’t you?


IN THE MEANTIME:  What was your favorite dish from your Thanksgiving dinner?   (That would be your favorite FOOD dish, not to be confused with the dishes politicians seem to prefer!)

    Well, since I no longer do the cookin as I did for muchos años and as the patriarch could put anything on my plate I wanted, I’m gonna hafta go with “ever’thang.”

    And surprisingly, I kept the portions sensibly small and din’t overdo it.

    Gotta say, tho, that my D-I-L makes one fine sweet-tater dish, from scratch, with melted marshmallers ‘n’ pecans on top. Nothin like the much-too-sweet concoction I always do up from canned yams (which DOES go great, however, with leftover stuffing and the last of the cranberries ‘n’ ham ‘long ’bout Sunday afternoon).

    AND . . . I larned a neat trick last nite. Milady bought a panini grill

    So last nite, feelin a bit peckish since we had dinner around 1430 or so, I fired up the thing and squeezed a sizeable wad of mashed taters on it. Left it for 6 minutes with the lid down, then opened it up when the steam quit comin out.

    PERFECT potato pancake. Crisp, brown, and evenly cooked. Oughta be great for latkes. Today I’m gonna try some of the leftover sweet taters on it. If it don’t work, dawgs’ll eat it, right?

    Sweet Potato Casserole. Yum!
    btw, not the greatest ad. maybe the worst?

    Well, from what I read about California Gun Laws there couldn’t possibly be a “rush” by “crazies” ; at least in the sense of Black Friday at Macy’s. Yes, a stupid ad indeed!

    We’re all crazy in our own ways… so the advert doesn’t disturb me.

    …and Stuffing. I even love it leftover and cold, right out of the refrigerator.

    FJ, I’d say “Crazy” is the very last word anybody who’s selling guns ought to use…talk about giving the anti-gun folks ammunition! (pardon the unintended pun!)

    JMB…really stupid!

    Bocopro, I’m not huge on sweet potatoes but our niece did the same thing…from scratch, pecans and marshmallows on top. Thankfully, the actual sweet potato part wasn’t overly sweet.
    I’d say ANYTHING would be good on that mashed potato panini!!!

    Ed…rumaki with LIVERS? That, I can’t eat, but I do make a fabulous bacon wrapped dates that you bake….taking them to Mom’s Tree Trimming party in 2 weeks.

    Jerry! I’m so glad you agree, too…REALLY TERRIBLE AD!!! I was stopped in my tracks while cooking yesterday when I heard that on the radio. “Just how awful can an ad BE!?” 🙂

    This woman I’ve been livin with for the past 55 years or so likes to thin slice sweet potatoes and cook ’em up like potato chips. All our kids liked ’em, too. Our D-I-L uses a mandolin to slice ’em, then deep fries ’em in good ol’ fashioned lard.

    It’s an o.k. change, I reckon, but I don’t even care much for ordinary tater chips. I can’t remember the last time I bought a bag of chips — prolly 25 years or so back, and then only for a party we were either havin or goin to.

    My dogs absolutely love sweet tater chunks, fried, broiled, baked, whatever. Nice treat for ’em, and vet approved.

    JMB, by the way, if you knew how many people I know who concealed carry, you’d be very surprised.

    Bocopro…sweet potato chips ROCK….I LOVE them. I bake them so’s to escape the oil, and it’s easier 🙂 They don’t get AS crisp but they’re delicious.
    I LOVE ordinary ‘tater’ chips….I could eat them all day, all night!

    I had to toss my mandolin out, the one I brought from Paris, because I was kind of afraid of it….My girlfriend cooks so much her husband used to say he had 911 on speed dial in case she cut her hand again!

    Please don’t read that link if you can’t stand the allegations against Trump about his own sexual harassing, BUT I found fascinating and so typical that the article mentions how Billy and Alex Baldwin are huge Trump haters (no surprise to anybody) and how Trump hit on Billy’s soon-to-be wife years ago …but never mentions their Republican brother Steven, who’s a supporter.
    The media’s so unhinged it just cracks me up.

    What a lame ad!

    Best food: my sister-in-laws stuffed mushrooms, and just being in the company of normal life for a few hours.


  10. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, you mentioned “Friendsgiving” yesterday and I’d never heard it used as you described it…mostly, it’s just FRIENDS who have family Thanksgivings but want to also be with friends the next day…nothing political. As a matter of fact, the young couple who invited me today are strong Conservatives…. Horrible if that’s true about public schools using it instead of Thanksgiving.

    GLad you had that ‘normal’ time….what’s she stuff her mushrooms WITH that they’re better than the dinner!? I’m eager to hear!


  11. geeez2014 says:

    Bay, I just saw that you did see my comment on the post below….

    And yes, Squanto would have died had he stayed, too, but then he wouldn’t have known English or Christ and might not have helped the Pilgrims at all!


  12. geeez2014 says:

    Sad is how accounts I’ve been reading this morning on Squanto say his goodness and help to the colonists has been exaggerated and he isn’t the ‘noble savage’ he’s thought to be.
    The great thing is that God uses even those who one would think weren’t “good enough” 🙂


  13. Mal says:

    Everything was delish! But I did what I said I wouldn’t do…….went back for seconds.
    Thank God it only comes around once a year! So now I bulge. ;o(


  14. Baysider says:

    I don’t know the stuffing. It was just good I brought an excellent ham, Mr. B made his hallmark raw cranberry relish, and we had green beans, quinoa pilaf and brussel sprouts along with stunning appetizer plates — at my nephew’s place. When stepson comes this week I’ll do a 2nd round, and make our FAVORITE pecan brandied fig pie. 🙂


  15. geeez2014 says:

    Mal…you’re HUMAN!

    Baysider, so glad you enjoyed the dinner….what makes the raw cranberry relish edible? I can’t imagine he uses sugar, knowing you guys avoid that stuff if you can!


  16. Kid says:

    Yea, crazies seems like a crazy word to put in there.

    The turkey was really good this year, but I like the whole enchilada. Mashed potato, sweet potato medallions with melted butter and brown sugar on top, stuffing, gravy on everything except sweet potato, and Mad customizes it all. No room for pie yesterday.


  17. John M. Berger says:

    “JMB, by the way, if you knew how many people I know who concealed carry, you’d be very surprised.”
    Pleasantly “surprised”, I’m sure! Let’s hope they will be around if needed.


  18. Linda Goossen says:

    Well, we had chili and cinnamon rolls. I missed the turkey and trimmings, but it just didn’t work out this year. Maybe in Feb we’ll be able to have our holiday celebration.


  19. Mal says:

    The hostesses daughter has her own business as a pastry chef so we always know she will have some great treats. Her truffles were exceptional.
    Nobody knows the truffles I’ve seen! ;o)


  20. Mal says:

    ……….but I already said that, didn’t I? Pushin’ 90 doesn’t help!
