Are you a Jewish? I'm reform, so I arbitrarily avoid piggishness but happily eat shellfish (and non-kosher meat). Yes, I know it makes no sense. No, please don't argue with me or make a comment about organised religion.

I could never be Jewish. Love pork and various bugs of the sea too much.

The idea that I could never again have a bacon cheeseburger with a chocolate milkshake and a side of crawfish poppers makes me sad.

I don't understand how people freeze their stock as cubes. Do you have like 30 ice cube trays or something?

The answer is "yes". I got them at a kitchen supply joint and they were like $0.50 each for the blue plastic kind.

Helps that I have 2 extra freezers (chest freezer and extra refrigerator freezer).

Cook stock in ice water bath, portion into trays, freeze.

Put in ziplocks after they are popped out of the trays.

They nest together nicely and aren't more than a foot tall when all stacked.

Spent my weekend with the boys blowing poo poo up with firearms all day and drinking all night.

Food was so-so, but if you think of it as hunting camp without the hunting, it was passable. Pulled BBQ pork sandwiches, home-made chili to slather on natural casing hot dogs, deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, coleslaw and potato salad. A few home made baked goods as well.


Got to shoot the FN SCAR 17 Heavy. That thing is authoritative when it booms out 20 rounds of 7.62 NATO in a row. Too bad the price is so prohibitively high.

"This food tastes like baby blood"

Today I decided to add daddy blood to the menu. I was slicing along chopping up some veggies for a stirfry when one of the 8 year old girls was saying dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, dad...

I turned to ask what is it sweetie. being the terrible parent I am I did not give my child my full attention. Consequently I was still slicing as I was talking to her. I am now missing and minor but measurable portion of my pinky finger tip and fingernail. Not only does it sting but it just won't stop bleeding. I have mummified my finger in four by fours and surgical tape until it's the size of a golf ball.

In reply to the "industrial food supply is evil "statements that have been going on recently, I would like to inform you people of an interesting development.

As I am an industry insider, I get lots and lots of trade magazines and invitations to trade shows and other events. one such events is a food safety conference that's going on very soon. essentially everyone in the industry will attend this conference. I know I'm going!

Like many large tradeshows, there will be lectures presented. one such lecture is on the topic of sustainability. Who do you guess the lead speaker and presenter is for sustainability in the food industry?

Why, of course it's Smithfield foods!

The same company that has been cited by the EPA for destroying watersheds and poisoning large swaths of land. The same company that has had employees die from being too close to its poo poo lagoons.

Yep they're experts on sustainability, and will teach us all how to do it right!

I KNEW IT!!

Now I have peer reviewed evidence to back it up!

Do you like to pontificate about organic food, your CSA and the evils of big ag? Then you may feel morally superior to others; you may be a jerk.
Continuing with Dr. Oz-inspired themes of insufferability and sanctimony, a new study confirms what I’ve anecdotally observed for decades: preaching organic makes you a jerk – and not in the adorable Steve Martin way, more in the self-perceived moral superiority way.
A paper published last week in the Journal of Social Psychological & Personality Science found that exposure to organic foods can “harshen moral judgments.”
As cited by Time magazine, “There’s a line of research showing that when people can pat themselves on the back for their moral behavior, they can become self-righteous,” the study’s lead author, Dr. Kendall J. Eskine, assistant professor of the psychological sciences department at Loyola University in New Orleans, told NBC’s Today show. Eskine and his team showed research subjects photographs of food, ranging from überorganic fruits and vegetables to fattening brownies and baked goods. He then gauged the primed eaters’ moral fiber with stories that warranted judgment, like one about a lawyer who lurks in an ER to try to persuade patients to sue for their injuries.
Reacting to the events on a numbered scale, the organic-food participants were more judgmental than those in the comfort-food category. They were also more reluctant when asked to volunteer time to help strangers, the study found, offering only 13 minutes vs. the brownie eaters’ 24 minutes. It’s like the group had already fulfilled its moral-justice quota by buying organic, so it felt all right slacking off in other ethics-based situations. Eskine labeled it “moral licensing.”
“There’s something about being exposed to organic food that made them feel better about themselves,” he told the Today show. “And that made them kind of jerks a little bit, I guess.”
The research doesn’t mean much, and I’m probably citing it only because it confirms my worldview, but still, there are a lot of preachers out there.
I’ll stick to focusing on food that makes people barf: organic, sustainable, local, dolphin-friendly or otherwise.

Wholesome foods and wholesome morals? Organic foods reduce prosocial behavior and harshen moral judgments

Abstract
Recent research has revealed that specific tastes can influence moral processing, with sweet tastes inducing prosocial behavior and disgusting tastes harshening moral judgments. Do similar effects apply to different food types (comfort foods, organic foods, etc.)? Although organic foods are often marketed with moral terms (e.g., Honest Tea, Purity Life, and Smart Balance), no research to date has investigated the extent to which exposure to organic foods influences moral judgments or behavior. After viewing a few organic foods, comfort foods, or control foods, participants who were exposed to organic foods volunteered significantly less time to help a needy stranger, and they judged moral transgressions significantly harsher than those who viewed nonorganic foods. These results suggest that exposure to organic foods may lead people to affirm their moral identities, which attenuates their desire to be altruistic.

Come on, $25 is a bit spendy for a glass of wine. I know some bottles would totally command that sort of price or more, but I'd at least like a rough idea of what I'm spending when I'm out.

I ordered a Manhattan at a reasonably nice restaurant here in MN, and not one of those that's rated super trendy-spendy-neato in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, but just a reasonably decent white tablecloth place.

Standard Manhattan, nothing special. Not even some special call brand of whiskey. It's not a house special or something they're "known" for, it's just a drink.
