      Hah. This only happens every single time I try to order coffee or make it anywhere but at home. If I say "NO... CREAM! REAL CREAM!!!" they act like you just asked for a turd.

      My mom goes out of her way, mind you, to make sure she's stocked up on fat-free Coffee Mate(TM) for me whenever I'm over at her house. (She takes her coffee black.)

          Well, its not white; its orange.

          I personally think nobody should find out, and we should stay a secret society of health.

          Sure it's sadistic, but think of the price of bacon if the status quo DOESN'T change.
          Yeah, sometimes I entertain myself by thinking that too, but the problem is the rampant cost of health care for people dealing with chronic issues becomes a drain on everyone, whether its by raising the premiums of private insurance or stretching the limits of medicare. Also think of how much a healthy, happy society could accomplish together, as opposed to a society where huge percentages of it are so sick and tired they are barely able to work, or even think for themselves.

            I reverse engineered my grandmother's "Chinese beef casserole" once. It was one of my favorites as a child - ground beef mixed with canned peas & carrots, covered with *I'm not making this up* broken potato chips, random other stuff. I started reflecting on the idea that it appeared to me that all our favorite family recipes most likely originated from magazine ads for Campbell's or Kraft (etc.) products, and thought about what it used to be.

            ...ground beef
            ...peas & carrots
            ...potatoes on top.

            Holy cow ... it used to be shepherd's pie. :headdesk:

              I had a similar response after "correcting" Gramma's Sweet Potato Goodness. It was sweet potato hunks, layered with bacon, cream cheese, pineapple, and ham, and baked in a pie crust. I thought it it was just one of her odd recipes until she mentioned that my great great grandmother made it with white potatos and cheddar. Sweet Potato Goodness was Potato Sour Cream Casserole flipped on it's head.
              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              • ^What about cracklins on top, or whatever those bits are called when you make tallow? Instead of the chips?

                  I "hear" this in a tiny little ANGRY voice. And then I laugh some more.
                  That's how it sounds in my head too!

                  & Spubba, I hope you don't mind but "Y u no eat whole grains?" is now my desktop background, because it is freaking hilarious.

                  • Ooh, that reminds me. I haven't made Coconut Chicken in a long time.

                    Chicken breasts dipped in butter and rolled in a 50/50 mix of crushed pork rinds and shredded unsweetened coconut. Bake at 350F and welcome to GOODNESS!

                      That does sound good. Would that be boneless skinless?

                      • Went to the library this past weekend to pick up some reserved items that had come in. The 2 librarians gave me a raised eyebrow. My books:

                        The Great Cholesterol Con
                        Track Your Plaque
                        Good Calories Bad Calories

                          Books I order from the library often mysteriously never come (they still owe me #1). Of course I'm a writer, and once I had to order a bunch of reference books about killing people.

                            That's how I make them, though I guess you could also make them with the bone in.

                              • I'm not sure I understand why you couldn't? Just cut it into parts and do the same thing with it. I'm gonna have to try that recipe, it sounds fantastic. My mouth is watering at the mere suggestion of the crunchy goodness.
