  1. What made you laugh today?

    What I was trying to post was, today I get an email titled "Can your bun pan do this?"   ???   Turns out it is this:    New England Hot Dog Bun Pan which is still a bit...strange...but here's the link.   https://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/new-england-hot-dog-bun-pan?go=EP190517_P&trk_msg=O2N4FNT30GLK7FQ987PPF6K8B4&trk_contact=F1MC7H3QOJKQVB7CUFNPT7D03O&trk_s&utm_source=ltk_master&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Shop+Now&utm_campaign=EP-190517&utm_content=hotdog-pan-20po-kafpans   I must be old. Doesn't take much to amuse me any more.

    Sorry, was too quick. Tried to copy the picture and fiddle about w/it before sending it to my kids. No offense meant, Jeremy. 
  3. Why are you happy today?

    IT'S EUROVISION TIME AGAIN!!!!   First semi-finals were last night, second are tomorrow, finals are on Saturday....   Lots of black leather & bondage this year. Costumes to rival the Met Gala...  
  4. Why are you happy today?

    Gentlemen,   the "Frau Fixit" thread reminded me - do you remember the "weight reducing" machines in the 60s/70s, where one stood in a belt machine (around the waist) that was supposed to vibrate the fat away?  I worked the "die 66" Messe week before last. During my break, I walked the show, and lo and behold, the "hot" item this year are vibrating boards (they look like fat skateboards) - one stands on them, tries to keep one's balance, and the vibrations should make one lose weight.  I saw three different companies. More may have been hidden...  Those suckers are expensive! Just think how much money Fr. Fixit has saved herself, by sitting on her washer!

    @AlexTr: your wife's swatching the dog reminded me of the kitchen wallpaper rule:  when choosing a pattern, if you can wake up with a hangover and still look at the wallpaper, buy it.

    So, now back to being happy.... In Close Vote, Denver Becomes 1st U.S. City To Decriminalize Psychedelic Mushrooms   https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/05/09/721660053/in-close-vote-denver-becomes-first-u-s-city-to-decriminalize-psychedelic-mushroo?utm_source=npr_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20190512&utm_campaign=bestofnpr&utm_term=bestofnpr&t=1557672082885  
  7. What are you cooking today?

    NOTHING!! At least not yet. There is a wonderful category that is ultimately fulfilling and productive at the same time. It's called "Grazing". Usually practiced in Big Box stores, supermarkets and the like in the US, one nibbles one's way through the premesis, thus eliminating the need to cook later on. So I am grazing through my kitchen. Good-bye, hunk of cheese and last bit of Provencale mustard. Good-bye, rose-elderflower syrup, hello panna cotta (I suppose this counts as cooking, but it's too easy). Good-bye, late bit of Nutella, into my mint tea (yum). I am a happy person today .  I would post this in the "happy" column, but everyone there is fighting.

    The recipe, the squirrel, or me?   
  10. What made you smile today?

    While researching a totally unrelated recipe, I came upon this:   https://www.greatbritishchefs.com/recipes/potted-squirrel-recipe?_ga=2.197949159.955506781.1557483506-1183960725.1557483506   I once had a boyfriend who hunted with cross-bow. He told me that his mother would cook everything he brought home except squirrel, because they're only rats with a bushy tail...   So then, my son sent me this:
