What's for Dinner, Sat. Sept. 22, 2018

I'm making a zucchini crust pizza for my brother tonight, using, of course, my favorite Mollie Katzen recipe. I've already spiralized the zucchini and just need to grate my mozzarella and parmesan, mix it up, and bake it. For toppings, I'll have fresh garden tomatoes, chopped herbs, garlic, red onion, sauteed spinach, and peppers.


I don`t know what the **** that is but it ain`t pizza.

Subbing cast iron skillet for oven

So....my oven has been out for a couple of weeks. The element actually caught fire one evening when I turned it on! My landlord is waiting for a new part to arrive (and is a little slow at repairs, too). And so I have been adapting dishes to stovetop with my trusty cast iron skillet.

Tonight I put together mac and cheese as I usually do, making the bechamel in a saute pan and adding cheese. Then I stirred in the cooked macaroni and then turned it all into my hot buttered cast iron skillet. Covered with some sliced Vermont cheddar and put on a lid. The hope was that the mac-cheese would brown a little bit on the bottom. And it did. Butter-fried mac and cheese. Slightly crispy on the bottom.

Last week I made eggplant parm by crisping up eggplant slices in the cast iron skillet and then putting a couple of slices on each plate, topping with tomato sauce laced with basil, then with mozzarella, and then with a gremolata that I had browned off in the skillet. Put it in the microwave to melt the cheese. Gremolata = stale sourdough or Italian bread crumbs whirled with chopped parsley, garlic, herbs, EVOO. Makes a very tasty savory crumb topping and is very adjustable. Umami.

Well now, that is an awfully complicated way to make macaroni and cheese.

Back when food didn't convulse in my stomach, I simply used to boil the macaroni, sieve out the water, put big chunks of butter on the bottom of the still-warm pot, dump the drained macaroni on that.  Then I'd stir it all up with the package of cheese mix.  Presto! macaroni and cheese.

Why the primitives insist on doing things the hard way, escapes me.

2. a few years ago we had to replace parts of a gas line and spent a month with no gas other than

a camp stove plus the microwave and an electric skillet - the husband figured out how to make "fried" peanut butter cookies! they came out pretty good,

Avenatti says he represents woman with ‘credible information’ about Kavanaugh

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti claims he is now representing a woman with “credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.”

The reveal came Sunday just minutes before the New Yorker popped a story outlining sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh made by a former college classmate.

Avenatti says the alleged victim, Deborah Ramirez, is not his client.

Michael Avenatti claims there is a thurd accuser. He represents Stormy Daniels.

28. Of course. Remember his preposterous appearance at the Women's March in DC?

He got a lot of (deserved) negative feedback on that one. I remember watching in disbelief as he went on and on about women, blah blah blah, and that's why "we must vote in Keith Ellison to head the DNC!" Like, women are fine and all that, but now let me promote a MAN to fix things.

A man who pushes and shoves women, and for which we have video evidence. 

Eliot is absolutely enraged, and is sitting there poised over the refresh button to monitor his thread.  He goes on and on with is anger.

3. Pork Chops

We will be eating late

There are some Pork Chops marinating in a sweet and tangy marinade - I think TJ wants to bake them
Corn on the cob

We haven't discussed any other sides, but I would like to stew some apples with cinnamon.

Naps have delayed the cooking. FLFC and TJ are snoozing, I may also take a siesta.

FLFC will demand pork and most likely get it. His left leg and hip are completely healed and now seem in better shape than the right ones. He is spoiled rotten since his recovery and often doesn't even get up off his pillow to make his demands. He would love to be hand fed every morsel. He will moan, howl, and cry to get his way. I try to have a heart of steel and let him go on for a while before I hand him something from the salad I'm eating, like a carrot or radish slice. He promptly spits it out and I tell him "but you wanted it" when he glares at me. I stare back at him and wait. He finally looks away muttering. He never wins the staring contest.

Is this a dog or a husband or a captive, or what?

10. I highly recommend

Whole Foods tater tots. They taste way better than any kind found at the regular supermarkets.

I may try your tip of subst. them for nacho chips.

Tater tots were a source of hilarity at our house, but only for a while.

It started out when my brother and I were planning the food for after my mother's funeral. The Ladies Aid, who caters such affairs, told us our choices and one of them was "Tater Tot Casserole." It was all i could do to refrain from laughing. Small town and all that.

I told the RG when I returned to NJ, and he thought it was funny, too.

About six months later the RG was in some small town in Colorado. He had gotten in late and all the restaurants but one were closed. He had to "hike" to that restaurant in the cold, snowy night, as there were no cabs in this place at that time of night either. When he arrived, he was told the special of the evening was "tater tot pizza." So he ordered it. And immediately called me to tell me how delicious it was!

Since then I have been "allowed" to keep them in the freezer. All the previous packages I'd purchased had been thrown out (tyrant!!).

~~~~~ If your dinner falls on the floor, don't be afraid to eat it. Just warm it up really good, remove any visible foreign matter, and proceed as usual. This is not good advice for sauces, pizza, or anything that actually sticks to the floor. ~~~~~

Quote
As Senate Republicans press for a swift vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats are investigating a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The claim dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale University. The offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation, and at least two have begun investigating it. Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The New Yorker, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote. The Democratic Senate offices reviewing the allegations believe that they merit further investigation. “This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanaugh. It should be fully investigated,” Senator Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii, said. An aide in one of the other Senate offices added, “These allegations seem credible, and we’re taking them very seriously. If established, they’re clearly disqualifying.”

The woman at the center of the story, Deborah Ramirez, who is fifty-three, attended Yale with Kavanaugh, where she studied sociology and psychology. Later, she spent years working for an organization that supports victims of domestic violence. The New Yorker contacted Ramirez after learning of her possible involvement in an incident involving Kavanaugh. The allegation was conveyed to Democratic senators by a civil-rights lawyer. For Ramirez, the sudden attention has been unwelcome, and prompted difficult choices. She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.

Another allegation, this time during Brett Kavanaugh's college year at Yale.

The accuser is Deborah Ramirez.

It is just the beginning of the GOP racial and shit ad tsunami. Recent ads make you want to crack heads somewhere. So far the few ad I have seen are so infuriating and nauseating. Just too much. This election cycle seems to be shaping up to be the worst ever.
