You Are a Full-time Foodie
Food is an important part of your life, and there's no denying it.
You're probably at least a decent cook, and you have a very sophisticated palette.

You're up on food trends, and you're always looking to sample something new and different.
You figure that if you're going to eat three meals a day, you might as well make them an adventure.

MAY ALMIGHTY GOD UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!



I love this Nation as dearly as I love my own life.

I fought for it willingly and proudly, as members of my family have done since the American Revolution, and still do to this very day.

In my youth, I spilled my blood for it on the Field of Battle.

In my old age, I will fight for it again, and, if necessary, give my life for it to advance the cause of Liberty.

I will not sit idle while Marxists, atheists, perverts and traitors work their evil machinations to undo the heroic efforts and sacrifices of over two centuries of Patriots and thereby bring this great Nation to its knees.

God Bless and protect the United States of America – The Beacon of Freedom shining through the darkness of a World beset by Tyranny!

God Bless and Protect our Gallant Troops of all Services – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

With the help of Almighty God, may the Right and our Beloved Nation prevail!

I started grilling with the book "Beard on Barbecue", originally owned by my ex-wife. As it happens she was a master chef - same with her mom and grandmother. I still have that book, as well as several other Beard titles. They have served me well in the Kitchen. He was a master of many different cuisines - from pasta to bread to seafood to game, etc. His recipes, IMHO, beat the tar out of most of the contemporary offerings we see today. We'll not see his like again in our time.

Sorry I'm late as well - I was diverted by son #3, who needed to get an online application in for a Summer job.

Thanks for the great Foodie thread!

Another great one was the irrepressible Julia Child:

“The Joy of Cooking” was my introduction to technique.

Much had been imparted via the family, but “Joy” introduced me to technique, from Kentucky to France.

*HUGS*

I posted the guts of that from work earlier today on Jim Rob's thread "A time for choosing: Life and Liberty or rot in hell under leftist rule!" That thread resonated strongly in me and I went to the page source and retrieved it when I got home. I then incorporated it into the graphic you now see.

It's all true - I may be old and weak, but I'm not going to sit by and watch this great Nation undone, by Obama or anyone else. That is all.

The Joy of Cooking is a great book. I will tell you, without getting into the gory details, that The Joy of Cooking worked much better in my first marriage than The Joy of Sex did.

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


Courageous Conversation

May 16, 2012

Is it possible that technological advances in communication have left us unable to confront people properly? After all, employers can now send layoff notices via e-mail. And people can criticize others on Facebook and Twitter instead of talking face to face. Perhaps it might be better to put all that aside and emulate how Paul communicated with Peter when they had a disagreement.

Paul had to confront Peter for compromising grace (Gal. 2:11-16). Peter had been fellowshiping with Gentiles, but when the Judaizers arrived (who believed that sinners are saved through Jesus plus keeping the law of Moses), Peter separated himself from the Gentiles. He ostracized them while professing to be one with them. Seeing this hypocrisy, Paul, in love and with passion, confronted Peter face to face for cowering to a legalistic system that was powerless to change lives. He vigorously reminded Peter that grace leads to freedom from sin’s slavery and to obedience to God.

Having courageous conversations with fellow Christians can be difficult, but they will promote purity and unity. We can carry out our responsibility to one another to speak the truth in love (Eph. 4:15) by walking in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Lord, give us courage to confront
Believers who have strayed;
And then with gentleness restore
By coming to their aid. —Sper
A well-chosen word can speak volumes.

Read: Galatians 2:11-21

When Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed. —Galatians 2:11
Bible in a Year:
Job 8-10

You Are a Part-time Foodie
Food is definitely something you get excited about. You love to eat!
And while each meal you have may not be extremely special, you try to spice things up a bit.

You aren't a very picky eater, and you're always looking to expand what you like.
You are willing to give almost anything a go, and you're quite the creative cook.

Aloha Doc and My!

Got a bunch of books by Cooks including Julia Child, Alma Lach on the French side, Paul Prudhomme on the Cajun side, and a few Mexican and Tex Mex, one which is difficult and meals tend to be expensive and one that's practically falling apart from age and use. One can make Tex Mex for pennies that are better than anything you'll get at a Taco Bell.

I mostly use only one Cook's books for Italian though; That's Biba Caggiano. Try to top anything she does.....without starting a vendetta.

You Are a Fast Foodie
Like everyone else on the planet, you like to eat. But are you a foodie? Not so much!
You know what you like when it comes to food, and you're not interested in anything too fancy.

You have been accused of being a picky eater, and that's partially true.
It's easy to be a picky eater when you already have some pretty fab foods you love!

It said something about buying green things.....

I told you about that weird lobster presentation I got at a restaurant once, right?
They broke the lobsters body in half, stood up the front end, and put lemons in it’s claws.
It looked like it wanted to play poker!
Presentation is important, IMHO.
If it’s not pleasing to the eye, it’s almost doomed.
I always try to make my food look really nice, even here at home.

There are some things I can’t stand either, like biting into a fuzzy peach.

It’s a texture thing.
To me, it would be like biting into a cold dead mouse.
