  1. Because of egg rolls, I’m just going to declare that Asia wins at food forever. They are quite possibly the greatest scientific achievement since the discovery of ham.

  2. RoaTheEternal says:

    You asked us to chime in if you did the fast-five before.
    Episode 147, the first of the two sets you did that episode.

    I think the discussion was more interesting this time.

    I’ll have to think about the thanksgiving meal additions

  3. Yay! Someone broke Jena this episode. It’s been a while since we heard the skipping laugh.

  4. Hey Salsa, are those carboys Italian glass or Chinese?

    • Honestly, I have no idea. Is there an identifying mark of some sort to differentiate between the two? (Three, if you include Mexican)

      Most of the research I have done has been inconclusive, and really is based on how you treat your carboys (i.e. did you drop it, have you banged it against anything) and less on where the glass was fired.

      However, since all of my carboys have been second-hand, I have no source for where they came from, unless you know of a distinguishing mark of some sort.

      Is there something I should know?

      • Nah, nothing in particular to know, just that Chinese carboys are usually a little bit thinner, which just makes them more prone to breakage, especially when you’re fermenting, and the carboy is under a pressure. I asked merely from professional curiosity.

  5. Related to the pilgrims Jena? Hope you’re related to Thomas Granger… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Granger

  6. Christmas or Thanksgiving… one dish we normally have is a Wild Rice Spinach Bake, I provided the recipe below. It is awesome and if you through meat into it, it becomes a meal in itself.

    1. 1 medium onion finely chopped.
    2. (9-10 oz) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well.
    3. 1 ½ cups grated Cheddar Cheese, about a 1/3 lb.
    4. 1 ½ cups of cooked Wild Rice, about a 1/3 cup uncooked.
    5. 4 eggs, beaten until frothy.
    6. 1 cup of milk
    7. 1 tsp. salt

    Combine the onion, spinach, cheese and wild rice, stirring to blend. Stir the eggs together milk and salt then stir this into the spinach-wild rice mixture. Pour into a lightly greased casserole.
    Set this in a pan with enough hot water to come up the sides of the casserole about an inch. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until the casserole is set in the center.

    Another thing that Shannon introduced me to that is awesome and covers your love for bacon, cheese and sour cream.

    Bowl some baby reds, when cooked through drain and mash. Take the potatoes and add sour cream, cheese, fresh chives and bacon to taste. Place in a casserole dish and top with chives, bacon and cheese. Baked until cheese is melted and slightly browned.

  7. First, as to the Thanksgiving foods, enchiladas are an excellent idea. In our house, generally on Saturday when we are all tired of turkey, much of the leftover turkey becomes enchiladas. Turkey does make a good enchilada. Fortunately the are really hard to mess up.

    Next, the fast five was a repeat. Others have stated this. I would like to say thank you for taking a different direction than I thought you were going. After the Christine/Ginger Snaps question you moved into vampires being stuck in the condition that they died in. I am glad you went with hair. Discussing a vampire who had changed during her period would have been odd.
