    Default Not OT: Coffee Extract

    Just stay away from all the Farah and Michael threads, any thread
    started by Andy, any thread in which PeterL is involved in, and
    anything with the word Sheldon in it and you'll be fine. That
    leaves 1/5th of the group.

    The OT threads are attractive to people who don't have a clue how to
    cook but they're distracting and discouraging for those who do know
    the business side of a pan. As the OT threads grow to record
    proportions, the actual cooking info in the group falls like a lead
    zeppelin.

    But if I didn't occasionally glance at some of those OT threads I'd
    have forgotten many people even existed - so they do serve some
    purpose, I guess.

    My favorite salad:

    lb macaroni
    qt mayonnaise
    two #2 cans baby peas
    two#2 cans French cut green beans
    four small cans tuna
    dozen eggs, hard boiled
    salt, pepper, dry mustard

    Chop the eggs, of course,and drain the peas and beans and tuna, but
    the rest is obvious.

    Season to taste and eat within a week.

    How's that?

    Quart of mayo? I'll pass. That's a lot of food to finish in a
    week. That's all I'd be eating if I were to eat it all.

    Different. "-) I've never seen green beans in a macaroni salad.
    Interesting. And to suit my taste, I'd use frozen peas instead of
    canned, but if you like the canned ones, that's your prerogative.

    I suggest you stick around and read the group and find out for yourself.
    Don't take someone else's opinion because there is too much history of
    arguments, insults, and alliances between folk for you to believe
    everything they tell you about someone else.

    It would probably hold together ok with less mayonnaise. I buy a
    quart for it and I am not sure I use the whole quart in the salad.
