Do you hear what I hear?

If you saw my previous post, you will understand. Christmas songs are now so much more poignant to me this season.

Had to choose. Bing Crosby, or Celtic Woman reunion. I chose the Celtic Women. Not only are they better looking, but I’m getting old and my grandnieces and grandnephews don’t know who Bing is. Very sad. Hope to fix that in the future.

Eat well. Drive safely. Don’t overdose on football.




And we made it back home again, safe and sound. Although my pants seem to have shrunk considerably. OMG, I swear I’m not eating again until Tuesday.

No Halloween Kiddie Snax This Year

Whatever Else You Do, Don’t Wear The Seal Costume

image

BAD IDEA



Arviat Nunavut, a large town on the west shore of Hudson Bay in northern Canada, just below the Arctic Circle, has canceled outdoor Trick or Treating for this year’s Halloween.  Because the town is crawling with Polar Bears.


Arviat officials posted to the hamlet’s official Facebook page saying the town would host an indoor event for kids at the Mark Kalluak community hall Oct. 31 as an alternative to trick-or-treating, which officials said would be too risky this year due to the polar bear presence around town.

“It was clear that the majority of people liked the idea of providing a safer environment for kids to celebrate Halloween,” officials said in the Oct. 15 post. “The goal of this event will be to make sure our kids remain safe and still have fun.”

“Picture 1,200 kids going door to door in Arviat in the middle of polar bear season,” stated Steve England, Arviat’s SAO. “It’s a pretty obvious conclusion of what tragedies could come out of that. We’re just trying to safeguard the younger population by offering an alternative.”

The proposed indoor “Halloween Community Event” will feature a haunted house and face painting with prizes and candy given to participating children, who would be brought to and from the community hall by shuttle bus.

And that one cranky geezer who didn’t like the idea?

Not everyone is enthused with this more restrictive alternative to outdoor trick-or-treating, however. “If parents want their kids to be safe they should be willing to look out for bears,” posted community member Agaaqtoq Eetak on Arviat’s Facebook page. “If there is a bear, shoot it. I think Halloween would not be the same if kids don’t go trick-or-treating.”

I can just imagine the scene if Agaagtog got his way ...

[sounds of excited small children running around]
ding dong!

Trick or Treat!!

GGGRRRAAAAAHHRR!!!
BLAM. BLAM. BLAM BLAM. Thump.

[kids run to next houses on street]

[and so on, down the whole block]

GGGRRRAAAAAHHRR!!!
BLAM BLAM BLAM. Thump.

GGGRRRAAAAAHHRR!!!

... ahh, childhood. The stuff so many good memories are made from.

Happy St Patrick’s Day

feeding the leprechauns

image

Drew sneaks in at the last minute with something for St. Patrick’s Day. Saints preserve us, he forgot all about it until he got to bowling league and realized his error of wearing a red shirt. In a sea of green. Oopsie. But hey, this isn’t an Irish area, I’m not Irish. I’m not even Catholic, so the various saints are a bit lost on me.  But I did partake in the American tradition of boiling the daylights out of a slab of corned beef brisket and then cooking a head of cabbage in the water until it was palatable. No potatoes, no carrots, no Harp or Guinness. Just a big wet slab of meat. I like corned beef, and at this time of the year they go on sale for next to nothing. So I stock up. Got 4 this year and froze 3. If I had the money and the freezer space, I’d buy a couple dozen and eat it every other week. With horseradish sauce.

Ok, so corning a bit of meat is a form of brining. Like making a ham. Soak the thing in salt water and it cures the meat, and drives off a lot of the water. I think. So why is it, that when you boil one up, half the weight of the meat disappears? If it’s half dehydrated by corning, shouldn’t boiling it make it heavier? I did a 3.5lb one, and when it was done there was barely meat enough to serve 4, which means it was nearly too small to satisfy 3. When you make whiskey, the stuff matures in a cask and about a third of the contents evaporate through the staves over the years. This is called the Angel’s Share. So maybe the missing seasoned brisket ought to be called the Leprechaun’s Share.

So all the meat is gone now, and of course there’s still a bowl of cabbage left. Which is quite tasty, but usually goes for want around here once the meat is done. Maybe the grocery store hasn’t marked up the leftover ones yet.

I guess I’m supposed to use this post as an excuse to put up pictures of a smiling Irish beauty. Oh fein, I can do that ...

Getting Ready For Tomorrow

Looks like the terrible snow and blizzard and cold has passed us by here. Yay! It’s wet, rainy, and hovering right around freezing ... it ain’t no afternoon in the Bahamas.

So I’ve got my somewhat famous Kitchen Sink Stuffing going in the oven ... a meal unto itself, with breading enough for a 20lb turkey, nearly 2 pounds of sausage, onion both raw and caramelized, celery, turkey stock, Craisins, walnuts, Bell’s seasoning, and a diced Granny Smith apple. For the first hour of baking it goes in the lobster pot, then after that I spread it out into glass pans or great-granny’s Savory Roaster for the final 30-40 minutes of top crisping, depending on how damp it comes out. Hoping and praying that it doesn’t come out too salty. I added no salt, but with seasoned stuffing cubes and various kinds of sausage, it could be a lot. I added some raw onion, the sweet Craisins, and the apple at the last minute, figuring they’d suck up some salt or at least hide it in the sweet.

I have no idea how big an event we’re going to tomorrow, but I’m going to make sure I leave at least a meatloaf pan full of stuffing home for me.

1 14oz bag Arnold stuffing
1/3 13oz bag Pepperidge Farms Country Style stuffing
1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter
1 26oz box Swanson Turkey stock
3 yellow onions
5 tsp (1 slightly heaping Tbs) Bell’s poultry seasoning in the little yellow box
6 celery heart stalks, trimmed and diced
12oz sliced white mushrooms
1 Jones Farm sausage log, 12oz I think
1 1lb Italian fennel & basil sausage. the long skinny spiral kind
1 5oz package Craisins
1 small bag Diamond brand crushed walnuts
1 Granny Smith Apple, cored and diced.

Boil the Italian sausage in 1” of water in a pan, drain, rinse, and brown both sides
Slice the Jones sausage into 1/2” thick slices, cook gently until both sides browned.
Dice 2 1/2 yellow onion, and brown them slightly over high heat. Dice the remaining half and set aside
Dice celery and cook it for 10 minutes to soften up a bit
Slightly chop the sliced mushrooms and heat them in a pan until they wither and slightly brown
Put the turkey stock in a small pan along with the butter and Bell’s seasoning and heat it until it boils

When the sausages are cooked, let them cool and then slice and dice them and mix them together

In a large bowl hand mix together all the onions, the softened celery, the craisins, walnuts, diced apple, and mushrooms
In a giant pot mix together both bags of stuffing cubes. Then mix in the bowl of onions and stuff. Lastly, mix in the stock a little at a time while turning over the stuffing vigorously with a big cooking spoon.
Cover the top of the pot and put it in a 350° oven for an hour. When cool, ladle a large portion into an oven safe dish for reheating at your relative’s tomorrow. Transfer remaining stuffing to a meatloaf pan or two, cover, and refrigerate.




Meanwhile I have to run up to the grocery store and buy something. I don’t know what, I just have to spend $7.85. Then we qualify for a free turkey or a ham or somesuch, which we throw in the freezer and usually have around Christmas. (I got a 12lb ham this time. Free)

So happy pre-Thanksgiving to everyone. In case I don’t get back to you for a couple days.

UPDATE: I am used to a reduced salt diet, so this tastes a little bit salty to me. Just a little. My wife is a “halophobe” but she didn’t think it was too salty. Go figure. Both the Pepperidge Farms and the Arnold stuffing cubes are around the 400mg/30gm level, even the unseasoned ones!, whereas the plain jane Stroehman’s bread cubes are down at the 280mg level. And while the Swanson turkey stock only has a little bit more salt than the reduced sodium College Inn chicken broth, I could have used less stock and substituted a cup of water instead. Together with a plain cubes (and another spoonful of Bell’s to compensate) that would have been a significant salt reduction. The tartness of the Granny Smith apple makes for a nice balance. A dozen or so grinds of fresh black pepper wouldn’t have hurt things either. Other than that, this is darned good stuffing. And it’s got enough pork in it to be a meal all by itself.

Easter Sunday

Happy Easter to one and all.

Renew your faith. Enjoy the holiday. Ignore small minded little leftist minds like Google, who diddled their logo, as usual, to note that today is Cesar Chavez’z 86th birthday. And the lettuce hasn’t even been planted yet!

We’re going to her dad’s today, so we made one of our famous cheesecakes last night so we’d have something to bring. We make them using the water bath method, and this time the spring form pan leaked. Dagnabbit. The solution of how to waterproof your spring form pan is simple: first, get the 18” heavy aluminum foil so you can wrap it in one piece. I always forget something; this time it was the foil so I had to make do with 3 pieces the regular width stuff. And that doesn’t work. Worse, I’m tired of getting the pan bottom scratched up, or left at somebody’s house for 3 months with the leftover, so I put a piece of parchment paper in there. And tucked it under the edges of the pan. Leaker!

So when I unbound the pan it was quite drippy. Carefully turning it over with another parchment paper and a plate, it went back into the spring form upside down and into the oven for half an hour at 400 to dry out the graham cracker base crust. We’ll see. And if it turns out to be a disaster, oh well. At least we baked. I’m sure her sister will bring cookies from the local Italian bakery, and they’ll be just fine.

You’ve seen those molded silicon muffin pans? I would like to see something like it for a spring form pan. Pretty much a rubber cover, watertight. Because the water bath method makes the most awesome cheesecakes.

Enjoy the day. Now I have to finish my coffee and get down to SP and do my work, quick like a bunny.

Xmas Presents, From Us To Us

A Gift Of Personal Luxury

image





It’s getting tough to get a good shower in these days. Many municipalities have lowered the water pressure in an effort to make their aging system of pipes last longer. In an effort to conserve water, the government has decreed that no new shower head can be sold that flows more than 2.5 gallons per minute. Up until this year most manufacturers have complied with that law by inserting a flow restricting washer in their shower heads, which you can remove. I hear that such rebellious non-compliance will no longer be tolerated by our masters at the EPA, and that starting next year the flow restrictors will be built in. Which means we might need to buy some drill bits ...

All new toilets use less than 2 gallons per flush too, and new faucets are also limited to the 2.5gpm amount. Many of the modern, stylish, water saving loos actually do a very poor job of flushing, aroma control, and, um, targeting. You wind up flushing twice or more.

A “water saver” shower head can save even more water, but nearly always does such a poor job of washing away the soap that you’re left feeling a bit sticky. I can’t stand them.

When we moved into this condo the installed shower head was “OEM”, one of those simple old 70s heads that flowed a whole lot of water, but sprayed it out in a great wide ring. Huge blobby streams, but you could almost put your face right up to it and stay dry, because all the water was shooting out above you, around you, and down at your feet. No good. In the closet we found a brand new Moen brand head, a plastic thing shaped a bit like a flattened mushroom. It had 3 settings, so we gave it a try. The settings turned out to be Weak, Mist, and Tickle. There had to be something better.

We found a thing at Amazon called a Thunderhead. It’s a shower head that seems to be a cross between a power shower and one of those fancy rain shower heads, but at a fraction of their very spendy prices. For only $90 you get a plastic head on a plastic arm extension, and the jets are some kind of flexible synthetic rubber. The reviews were mostly very positive, but many people noted that they had to rub the jets all the time to clean them so they wouldn’t clog. And $90 for a hunk of plastic? Phooey. There has to be a better way.

Enter highpressureshowerheads.com. This is a little company that has looked at the entire shower head market, actually gone and tested most models, and elected to carry only shower heads that really work. But what if you don’t want a shower so strong that it feels like it could be used to strip paint? What if you want something fairly potent but also a bit luxuriously voluminous? They have that one covered as well.

Finally, a Rain shower head that delivers superb pressure!

Brass, fully-skirted body with individual solid brass nozzles that deliver near-laminar flow for outstanding pressure. Face is 5.5 inches in diameter, just large enough to look great but small enough to deliver much more pressure than larger rain shower heads with 8” or 10” heads. This is the only true Rain-style shower head we’ve found that meets our requirements for pressure and quality construction. Water flows through individual cast brass precision nozzles, not just dimples or holes like many inferior models. Be sure to click on the photo to get a better view! It’s a really attractive shower head.

The pressure is so strong that this shower head provides far greater pressure than most standard size shower heads on the market. Unusual for rain shower heads, ours can be mounted directly on traditional shower arms.

In accordance with the law, this one comes with a 2.5gpm flow restrictor installed. It also comes with instructions on how to remove the restrictor. And a handy little wrench in case you ever need to remove one of the machined brass nozzles for cleaning, or replace it’s individual O-ring seal. The quality of the head is quite good, and it isn’t even made in China.

After we got home Christmas night and she went right to bed and fell asleep, I swapped in the new head for the disappointing plastic Moen one. After first removing the restrictor washer, bad boy. The whole job took me about 3 minutes, and that’s with applying some new Teflon tape to the threads. I didn’t say anything. She goes in this morning to take a shower. I hear the water start running, and about 4 seconds later I hear “WOW!!” She was done in far less than half the time too. The head projects large individual strong streams of water; plenty enough jet pressure to give you a moderate “blasted clean” sensation, but also plenty enough water to give you that nice soaking downpour feeling you want a rainshower head for. Why choose one or the other when this one gives you both?

Rainshower heads are usually designed to hang from a vertical arm. Not this model. I installed this one on the standard shower arm so that the water projects at the typical downward angle. I’ve read that a completely vertical shower can make it difficult to clean certain nooks and crannies, which the angular spray handles. The can part of the shower head holds a cup or more water, so it drips quite a bit from the lowest nozzle when you’re done. The head comes mounted on a ball joint, so it’s an easy solution to just point the thing down afterwards, and all the water drains out from all the nozzles in just a couple seconds.

Best $60 I’ve spent in a long time. It comes in 4 finishes to match any bathroom decor.

Expanding Your Lexicon

Instead of the schoolboy essay on “How I spent my holidays” I’ll give you a new word that encapsulates the day long Christmas Eve festival of food and drink I went to with all of her relatives. New Jersey Italian-Americans are very proud of their heritage, but since they all got here via a few generations living in Brooklyn and Staten Island, those boroughs have had their influence. This bunch, which we sometimes fondly call The Vultures, had it dialed up so much they even had “an Italian Christmas tree” which didn’t feature Neapolitan ornamentation at all, but it was decorated with bands of green, white, and red lights. Paisan! We had a great time. And for folks from odd places like Oregon, I guess I should add that not one person said a word about being Italian, or acting that way, or how the party was based on a formal religious festival. No. They are, so they don’t have to act. They don’t even have to mention. And that’s a huge difference. It ain’t Snooki and her gang of greasy losers. Besides, they’re all from Brooklyn, not from New Jersey. And we know what that means.

image image image

Eeh, now dat’s Italian!




A New Joisey Woid

[a new, New Jersey word]



Proper Italian Word: cafone, noun. Pronounced with a very soft “c” that almost sounds like a “b”: cah-phone. Meaning: a peasant. Someone from the rural countryside.

New Jersey Version: gavone, noun. Pronounced with a sharp “g” and “v”, emphasis on the second syllable: gah-Vone. Meaning: a greedy uncultured slob.

An Italian-American word originally meaning an ill-mannered, unkempt pig-man (or woman). Based on italian cultural concepts like making a good show of yourself and an obsession with cleanliness. The word comes from the Italian “cafone”, which sounds to an english-speaker as ‘Gaw-Vone’ when spoken with a southern Italian accent.

Example: “Joey, he’s such a gavone, he puts ketchup on his lasagna!!” [thanks to our old pal Lucy] In other words, it means almost the same thing as a medeegone [which in NJ Italian sounds almost like “merry-cone"].

Expanding Your Lexicon: gavoning, verb. Pronounced “gavone-ing”. Meaning: duh, waddayou, stupit, you don’t know whadit means? It means, duh, acting like a friggin’ gavone!, but usually in the context of eating. Almost always used with a directional indicator such as up, down, or at. Similar to “scarfing” but with more haste and gusto. See also: “boardinghouse reach”.
Example: “Man, what a party. What a feast! You shoulda seen da vulchas gavoning up the prosciutto and the sfogliatelle!” [Man, what a party. What a feast! You should have seen all the hungry relatives eating the ham ("pra-zhoot") and the shell cookies ("szvoy-a-dell")!]

Note: like gavone, gavoning is an insider’s word, used lovingly to bust chops on people you are close to. When used by an outsider, either term will be considered a direct verbal assault and immediate repercussions will be taken. You gotta problem wid dat? You talkin to me wid dat mouth?



Coining credit goes to John E. Not one person around the huge table had ever heard the term before. After everyone got back up in their chairs after ROFLMAO, the new enverbiation was hotly debated over several more drinks and another helping of the excellent baccalà, and it was finally judged acceptable. Marone a mia!
