I made fideo tonight. It's good. I did this because tomorrow I'm making pumpkin spice martinis, and they will probably not be good.

Take 1 tablet by mouth daily.

I don't comment in this thread much but I felt you should all know that i'm coating tomorrow's turkey in bacon fat because I can. I assume it'll be like coating a chicken in butter to get crispy golden skin and moist meat and if it's not it's still going to be delicious.

My husband just told me he likes stovetop stuffing more than homemade. Should I just oversalt this year's batch or just jump out the window?

My wife once told me she preferred shop bought salsa to to my homemade.

Unfortunately, this was about ten years in and two kids in, so it was too late for me to do anything about it.

Yip Yip, bitch.


Original plan was for the boyfriend to come get me, and I help make thanksgiving for him and his mum and sister. His parents divorced a couple of years back, and things have been weird with holidays.

He called me Monday afternoon and told me that he might have gotten exposed to covid, so he痴 gonna have to cancel everything. Ok. For the first time in my life, I知 spending today alone. Rather than feeling a sense of loss or whatever, I知 low-key loving it. Usually by last night, I'd be at a friend's house, because I've been either hosting it myself, or helping a friend to host it all this time. Personally if I'm hosting, I'll knock up a few dishes that I know are crowd pleasers, and order plenty of wine, and then relax the rest of the day. Whenever I'm with friends, I'll do something similar, depending on the level of fucks I have that year. Last night, I got into bed at 11~ish (which is kind of late, to be honest), but still way earlier than I'd do so if I were visiting with a friend.

I hate pumpkin pie, so I made myself a cake on Monday. And, because it's just me, I'm not "saving" anything for when the actual meal itself happens. I ate through half that summbitch already. I love potatoes, but mashed is not as fun for me as baked. So I threw in a bunch of potatoes when I was baking the cake. Now I have a nice little hoard of baked potatoes. Score. I made a couple of other dishes that I can eat whenever I feel like. (In general, I dislike having a big meal all at once. I prefer to graze all day.)

I've got good eats on the TV, and I'm having a good time.

Update on the boyfriend. The person who he thought was exposed to covid came up negative, but he's being cautious until he gets tested as well after the holiday weekend.

I知 going to be spending thanksgiving with my wife so it should be nice. To be honest I知 gonna be pretty lazy with the food this year, having to consolidate shopping trips has kind of reduced my drive to do something like thanksgiving in a 菟roper way. But a basic and easy thanksgiving sounds kind of nice right now, since I致e got Friday off too so I知 just going to relax a bit from cooking since I致e been doing so much of it.

This won稚 be the loneliest thanksgiving for me at least. When I was in grad school my experiment would take proton beam delivery on off hours, so roughly 6pm to 6am, and all day weekends. I壇 do night shift midnight to 8 watching the data come in and tending the fires. We also ran over thanksgiving so I took the midnight-8 shift on Thanksgiving. So I made some vegetarian shepherds pie and my thanksgiving meal was just me and my shiftmate in the counting house watching number slowly go up. Not particularly festive, but the pie was nice.

Wanted to do turkey parts, ended up with a 20lb frozen turkey bring dropped on me on Tuesday instead. I somehow got the thing defrosted and in the oven by this morning, but gently caress me people there's a reason to get a frozen turkey way ahead of time, don't saddle me with this poo poo.

I'm really looking forward to today. Mrs. BrianBoitano and I have hosted 4-8 people every year, and we did the full spread. This year, we池e in a new apartment, new city, new baby, and doing all that was never going to be feasible.

My parents are too elderly to fly and live too far away to drive, and her parents are with her sister. We are lucky that we have aunts and uncles in town, one set from wife's mothers side and one from her dad's. To limit exposure all around, we're spending it with the aunt and uncle set who have no other guests.

This will be the very first outside human contact we've had in 2 1/2 months, AND we don't have to cook the whole meal + desserts. We're still baking thyme pull-apart rolls and an apple galette, and I juiced apples for a honeycrisp rum shake, so not entirely missing out on the kitchen traditions.

Happy t'giving y'all!

Mr. DnF's siblings and their girlfriends all live in town and we usually host, but decided last week that instead of having potluck at our place we'd do a food swap. I deboned a turkey and rubbed it with mayo and I highly fuckin recommend it. 90 minutes at 350 and it was perfect and juicy with crispy skin. I also did sourdough stuffing, and gravy with Hella Sage, and an apple cider cake, and Mr. DnF made crabcakes. Sibs made mashed potatoes, competing gravy, mezcal negronis, cheese gougeres, sage sabl鑚, cranberry sauce, "meat bread", and a couple joints. Unfortunately for me I had like 7 mai tais last night and have a wicked hangover so I've barely eaten anything.

Mezcal negronis are so good! The 1-1-1 spec is an easy winner but i really like 1.5 mezcal, 1 black Spanish vermouth(Atxa or Casa Mariol), and 0.75 a milder bitter such as Montanaro Aperitivo. Split the vermouth with an oloroso sherry if you really wanna complicate things. I honestly think mezcal negronis are better than gin ones.

Heck yeah sis.
I haven't done any chili yet this year. It's getting to be that time though. But I have all these chicken thighs to use up. And also Italian sausages, and brats my mom gave me.
I may live alone and have an over/under freezer/fridge but I stock up well.

I don't usually deviate from the 1:1:1 spec, but a few drops of Bittermens Xocolotl Mole bitters makes any mezcal negroni better. Chocolate bitters are nice too, but the touch of chili heat and spice profile of the mole bitters is top-notch. And, agreed mezcal negronis are better. I love all negronis, but something about smoke and agave lends itself so well to the formula; I haven't found a gin yet that can compete.

Mom and I drank manhattans all day yesterday while doing turkey things, and I experimented with my embarrassingly extensive bitters collection. Ango was of course the perfect baseline, and I liked it considerably more then Peychaud's. Chocolate and cardamom bitters were the best we tried, along with Bittercube's Trinity which is primarily cherry/almond in profile. Grapefruit failed to impress. Lavender was extremely floral and would probably appeal more to folks who actually like lavender.

The only version I've ever had is my mom's, which I used to ask for on my birthday every year and which she gave me the recipe to when I got married. I believe she picked up from working at a bunch of Cincinnati diners in her teens and twenties in the 70s. It's not really perfect food and I'm sure there are ways to improve it but this is, like, perfect comfort food to me and one of my main go-to things specifically for when I'm feeling homesick (also her zucchini pie and just pimento cheese or red beans and rice in general-- she bounced all around the Southeast and the Midwest before settling down). I feel proud that in grad school I was friends with two people who went to college in Cincinnati and were disgusted by Skyline but liked this.

I usually adapt this to be meatless. I also break the law big-time and often cook the beans in the chili instead of cooking them separately and putting them on top, but please never tell my mom that. This is very diner-y food, so just dump in a ton of spices and go for it if you don't like the numbers used here. I've cropped out my mom's name but otherwise will just present it as is including weird stains on the back that were there when she gave it to me.



Obviously it's kind of a love it or hate it thing but I hope you give it a try and enjoy it for what it is! Growing up we usually ate it over spaghetti with beans and extra diced onions on top, with oyster crackers and a little bit of cheddar (much less than I've seen on pictures of Skyline food), but it's also great on fries or eggs or over a hot dog if you like hot dogs or like a kielbasa or something, I certainly dumped a bunch of it on a veggie dog enough times when I was younger.
