Anything goes. What happens at FOTMD parties.... stays at FOTMD parties. (hey, why are we still yakkin' on this old 700 member thread? - there's a new thread already for 800!)

Paul, regarding FOTMD and its status relating to 'drink'. You need to talk to Rod Westerfield on this subject, but be careful, he managed to get me into real trouble at a previous party, DO NOT offer to look after the 'Dew'Thanks for the info on TorontoJohnH Paul Rappell said:
John Henry said:
Good morning Paul, read your notes on Swansea. Wondered if there is direct historical link with ours?
my regards, JohnH

Ontario is full of British place names - London, Perth, Brighton, Inverary, Windsor, Scarborough, York, to name but a few. Sawnsea was originally called the village of Windermere. I have no idea why they changed it (maybe someone came from there). In the early 1900s the rowdy railroad workers would have too much alcohol and get into fights, so they made it a "dry" town. Swansea includes High Park, a huge park in the which had coyotes (in the middle of Toronto!) when I was there. Swansea/West Toronto ("The Junction" - a former railroad town) was the last neighbourhood in Toronto to be dry. It went wet after a referendum in the early nineties. I suppose it wouldn't have made a such good place for a "party for 800" before the vote.

JohnH

I suppose I could make a trip to Swansea, too - Swansea, former village, now a part of central Toronto, and my old neighbourhood!

With good timing, we'll be able to celebrate 800 by the FIRST of July, Canada's birthday! We can raise a glass to Sir John A. MacDonald, Canada's first Prime Minister, who raised many (very, very many) a glass himself during his lifetime. Here in Kingston, you can see all the places Sir John A. lived, slept, ate, practised law, and got drunk.

Although it seems as though we may reach the number earlier. Maybe we need to check other countries' birthdays.

So, party time again soon, looks as if I will have to take a trip over to Swansea to purchase enough Laver bread, Cockles, and Welsh cakes for 800! The increase in FOTMD membership is beginning to make catering for parties a bit expensive!!! I am hoping that Dana MaCall can provide enough bacon fat to fry the Laver bread in? You ordered that 'dew' yet Rod?JohnH Strumelia said:
Michael, there is a glitch right now in the member numbers.
We actually have 791 current members. The "see All Members" link only shows 744. I imagine this will be fixed soon by Ning. It's happened before for a day or two.When I go to the Administrator view it shows all 791 members.Somebody should start a new 800 member party thread I suppose...

Sounds yummy. Good luck with the cucumbers. I never seem to have any luck with veggies, so haven't ordered any seeds for anything really interesting like your "White Wonder". Tomatoes don't even do well for me. Strumelia said:
Folkfan, I ordered some 'White Wonder' type cucumbers seeds for my garden, very mild and a white color. The seed catalog suggested the following recipe, but I haven't tried it yet! It sounds really good, and I might add a touch of lemon juice:
{{{Lebanese style: slice two small White Wonders paper thin. Add 1 cup yogurt, a pinch of salt and chopped mint leaves to taste. Chill for one hour but serve at room temperature.}}}
I googled 'Lebanese cucumber yogurt', and here are many other variations:

She was Miss Tennessee, some years ago, and her talent in the Miss America pageant was clogging. I'd guess she's around 42, now -- but she's still right limber. I couldn't do this when I was 22. (And I do love that Middle Tennessee accent.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_ZfAI8L9RQ&feature=player_embedded If any of you have read the Stephanie Plum detective series, they are kind of alike: two young women in the same unusual line of work, but with substantial ethnic and regional differences. Oh, and Leah is a real person. Stephanie is a figment of the imagination of Janet Evanovich.

John Henry, Bring your cheese please. Don't bring processed cheese slices. It isn't the type of cheese that the was the problem with my experience with stinky cheese. But rather it is a story of a cheese that had gone bad, really bad.On a car trip my dad had somehow gotten hold of a wax covered chunk of colby longhorn cheese. A cheese I normally love, but after sitting in the hot car unrefrigerated, it was RIPE. For some reason he thought that it would keep unopened. It just didn't. Both it and the family were turning green by the time we got to Yellowstone when he finally tossed it out. There was a bear near by and it was approaching the car, so he slowed down, cracked open the window and tossed it like a football. DUMB, but sort of a typical tourist type of stunt. The bear came over to the cheese, sniffed, turned up it's nose and waddled away. Who'd have though that food would be a bear deterrent. Or maybe this was just an extra smart bear.It took me awhile before I could eat colby cheese again. Actually quite awhile.Tongue.gifGrin.gif

Sorry about the mistake on smoking vs grilling for the chipolte. I had someone take the ripe jalepeno and slow grill them over a smoky fire and they called them chipolte afterwards.And I wouldn't call a wax bean a butter bean as to me a butter bean is a lima bean not like the yellowish string bean that I've always called wax beans. I wonder if this is a regional difference.Butter beans to me are the large, flat lima beans that are white in color rather than the smaller green variety of lima that we call baby limas.Interesting how names even in the same country can be different. Ken Hulme said:
Ok John. You've gotten the start of an American culinary vocabulary now that we've cleared up Garbanzos for you. You also know that Anchos are dried Poblano peppers, both of which have more flavor but almost no more heat than an ordinary bell pepper. And a Chipotle is a ripe and smoked (not grilled as someone said) Jalapeo pepper. Oh yes - and Wax beans are like green beans but more subtle flavor, and they are sometimes called string beans or butter beans.

Pepper have confusing names because they change name often, when dried - like Poblano/Ancho and jalapeo/chipotle. Poblanos/Anchos are very mild - often hardly warmer than a green or red bell pepper. Another mild dried pepper is the Chile Negro and Chile Mulatto. Soaking a dried pepper for 20 minutes in warm water brings them back to life. Chipotles are definately spicy. You quite often find them canned "en adobo sauce" which is a decidedly spicy tomato sauce.

Here's one you may or may not know - the salad green you call Rocket we call Arugula! Took me forever to figure out what Jamie Oliver was nattering on about!

Hey Ken! just picked up your message, Had a houseful for the holiday weekend, been busy, even done most of the cooking, we are pushing eighty, and I do try and take the strain where I can!!! Like other things, you are right about the common lanuage, tho' of course it it just not that, it is only fairly recently that we have started to regard peppers as an every day cooking ingredient; when we first got married ('52) they were just not around, 'twas the advent of easy travel that began to expose us to more exotic fare than " Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pud". Jamie Oliver! Are you able to see his stuff over there? We have almost non stop cookery programs on our screens, and this of course has presented many more options aimed at tickleing our taste buds. The next time I visit our local Mexian resturant I can toss out some pepper based terms as if I know what I am talking about! Be interesting to see what arrives on the table! Thank you for your reply,Regards, John Ken Hulme said:

OK, I see I am going to be the one to corrupt this festive gathering with some potent libations.We have a Meyer lemon tree in our yard, and for those who don't know the Meyer, it is a sweeter, less acidic lemon often used by bakers for lemon tarts and the like. Some believe it was a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange, and it almost has a tangerine tinge to the flavor. If you let the lemons age a bit on the tree to the point that you think they are beginning to rot, the sweetness intensifies even more.Last night, my wife, brother-in-law, and I enjoyed the most delicious cocktail. (You can obviously alter the volumes below so long as the ratios stay the same.) My wife calls this drink a lemon drop, but I've heard that name used for other drinks. I prefer not to name this one and just to think of it as a hard Meyer lemonade.2 ounces fresh squeezed Meyer lemon juice2 ounces vodka1 ounce simple syrupPour those ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass rimmed with sugar and garnish with a lemon slice.Tastes so good and feels even better!I wish I could mix one up for Strumelia for beginning this gathering and then go on to offer each of you one as well.Cheers,D.T.

wax beans look like a yellowish green bean. John Henry said:
Thank you folkfan,chick peas is all I've ever known em as! Wax beans...................? I really should get out more LOL JohnH

folkfan said:
Garbanzo are also called Chick peas. They are the main ingredient in all the falafels I've ever had and frequently used in bean salads with green beans, wax beans, kidney beans and onion. Round, creamy colored with a size that is larger than a green pea.

Ancho are the dried form of the poblano peppers which are usually a mild sweet chili pepper. Though as I understand they can fool you sometimes as to their heat factor.

And chipotle are grilled jalapenos. They give a smoky heat to a dish.

Ken will probably be able to give us the exact heat factor each chili brings to the dish. All I know is that though I love spicy dishes these peppers are completely off my list for ingredients. Anything hot doesn't got into my pot anymore. DARN That's why I'm glad Ken is making this dish for a cyber party, as I'll be able to enjoy the thought of it, and not actually have it in front of me as a temptation. ;-)

I made a fabulous but different Meat & Beans dish (not Chili - Chili has no beans!) the other day and this is the perfect excuse to make more. I used dried garbanzos, a seared for flavor then diced ham steak, onion, a couple of ancho chiles for flavor, a couple sticks of celery, a can of diced tomatoes, and half broth/half water to simmer everything in. For spices, a little cinnamon, salt & pepper, basil, rosemary & thyme from the garden, and a sprinkle of chipotle for a little smokiness and heat.

Thank you folkfan,chick peas is all I've ever known em as! Wax beans...................? I really should get out more LOL JohnH folkfan said:
Garbanzo are also called Chick peas. They are the main ingredient in all the falafels I've ever had and frequently used in bean salads with green beans, wax beans, kidney beans and onion. Round, creamy colored with a size that is larger than a green pea.

Ancho are the dried form of the poblano peppers which are usually a mild sweet chili pepper. Though as I understand they can fool you sometimes as to their heat factor.

And chipotle are grilled jalapenos. They give a smoky heat to a dish.

Ken will probably be able to give us the exact heat factor each chili brings to the dish. All I know is that though I love spicy dishes these peppers are completely off my list for ingredients. Anything hot doesn't got into my pot anymore. DARN That's why I'm glad Ken is making this dish for a cyber party, as I'll be able to enjoy the thought of it, and not actually have it in front of me as a temptation. ;-)

Well to cool the throat from the heat that Ken is bringing, I'll bring a creamy dessert with a layer of raspberries mixed in jello, whipped cream, and more raspberries in jello on top. Oh, I forgot the bottom of the pan is covered with tea biscuits and those are stacked through the dish and form a top crust. Each slice is topped with more whipped cream. Can you ever get too much whipped cream? This dish is also good with a pumpkin mousse type of filling.
