    Default Today's cooking

    Hi,

    I just discovered your blog, and I adore it! It's a really good fit with
    mine, and I'd love to do a Follow Friday feature on it. (I recommend a
    blog every Friday. To see some examples, you can check out
    http://www.momfoodproject.com/category/follow-friday/ )

    Would you be interested? If so, are there any certain posts or photos
    you think my readers would especially love to see? Or are there some
    photos you'd allow me to use as part of the review post?

    Warm regards,

    Serene

    This was supposed to be an e-mail, wasn't it?

    Well, ****. I don't even know how I did that. Oh, well. It's not the
    WORST personal email I could've posted. ;-)

    Worst personal misdirected email I've seen was, roughly: -"She lied
    when she said that was supposed to go to only one person, rather than
    the entire mailing list. Nobody could possibly make that kind of
    mistake."-

    Heh. I've done it twice or three times since I got online. Fortunately,
    I don't tend to send embarrassing emails, so it's not been anything
    awful. (The most embarrassing ones would probably be accidentally
    posting love-notes here, but those would just be embarrassing in the
    "oops!" way, not anything I'd be ashamed of.)

    This is why you should have a newsreader, and a (separate) email reader.

    Never the twain to meet under one roof.

    I have Xnews for news, and I have Thunderbird for mail.


    And they are *both* free, so cost shouldn't be an issue.

    Seems to be one hazard of using the same client for both Email and News.
    My daughter is suggesting a new Email client, since the one we have
    hasn't been supported for four years. She is recommending Thunderbird
    as a replacement.

    One of the things I like about you, Serene, is that you don't seem into
    sending different messages to different people.

    The subject is a good one, so let's make the thread about Sunday dinner.
    I'm just about finished preparing the extended-family Sunday dinner of 40
    Cloves of Garlic Luscious Legs, couscous and California Medley (cauliflower,
    broccoli and carrots).


    * Exported from MasterCook *

    40 Cloves of Garlic Luscious Legs

    Recipe By :Emeril Lagasse, 2006
    Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:20
    Categories :

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    6 chicken leg quarters -- thighs and drumsticks
    connected (about 3 1/2 pounds)
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    3/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper -- heaping measure
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 large onions -- sliced
    40 whole garlic cloves -- peeled
    1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 1/2 cups chicken stock
    3 sprigs fresh rosemary -- (3 to 4)
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

    Rinse the chicken leg quarters under cool running water and pat dry with
    paper towels. Season all over with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon
    of the black pepper.

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

    Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet and, when hot, add the
    chicken leg quarters and cook until browned on both sides, 10 to 12 minutes.
    Remove chicken and set aside for later. Add the onions and garlic to the
    skillet and season with 1/4 teaspoon of the remaining salt and a pinch of
    the black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have wilted
    and are lightly golden and the garlic cloves are caramelized slightly, 6 to
    8 minutes. Add the flour and stir to combine. Cook, stirring, for 1 to 2
    minutes. Add the chicken stock, rosemary and lemon juice to the skillet and
    season with the remaining salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the skillet
    and bring to a boil. Sprinkle the chicken with lemon zest. Cover the skillet
    and transfer to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes, or until chicken legs are
    cooked through and tender. Serve immediately, with some of the pan juices
    ladled over all.

    I, of course, will be making chicken soup, but I'm also making chorizo
    and eggs for breakfast, and probably either chicken salad or chicken a
    la king for lunch. We have a lot of chicken to use up (I was going to
    make party quantities of the soup on Saturday but didn't, and the
    chicken was all already thawed.)

    I've been using Thunderbird for many years and really like it. I prefer
    about anything to MS anything.

    Yep. Just pointing out that posting a private email to a newsgroup would
    never happen with separate programs.

    In the end, the choice is yours.... but if you've done it several times,
    it's bound to happen again.

    "Never" is an awfully long time. I'm sure lots of people have done it
    with separate programs.

    I advocate using separate programs, but that's my own agenda, and I know
    it. It's a lot easier to use one program for everything, and I just
    happened to end up using several programs, because there didn't use to
    *be* just one. I also spent 25 years as a computer programmer, so I'm
    pretty used to learning a lot of different programs.

    It's yet another textbook example illustrating why I hate newsreaders
    that are also used as email clients.

    That'd have to be an *awfully* big slip up!! How would it even happen??

    There isn't any way I can post to newsgroups from Thunderbird (I've set it
    up that way), and there isn't any way I can email through Xnews (once
    again, it's in the setup, I've tried it a coupole of times, but it 'does
    not compute'!!)..... so unless I copied and pasted an email message onto a
    blank news posting page, I can't see it happening.

    At the end of the day, it's only *2* programs..... maybe learning just one
    if the current program was kept for one thinbg, and a different program
    was selected for email or news.
