    Could be new Kiniki “acid wash” style. Definitely letting more light in!

    Noted about potential destruction. My plan is to remove suit once submerged anyway. :)

    Ahhh, good old Weis market. You're taking me down memory lane. People in the Northeast knew how to make my favorite -- eclairs the stretch limo of donuts.

    @Phosphene you have not been studying your Polish enough:

    I never tried pork maw. I've been (almost) nicely asked to not cook beef tripe when my wife and son are home. The taste is good but it sure has presence while cooking.

    Quick Lunch Étouffée
    • ¼ cup flour <---- yep not epi-paleo but I've been a good boy
    • 6 Tablespoons butter
    • ½ cup green bell pepper diced
    • ½ medium onion diced
    • ½ cup chopped celery (about 1-2 sticks)
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 1 teaspoons thyme fresh or dried
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 cup chopped(I prefer crushed) tomatoes
    • 2 teaspoons seasoning like “Slap ya mama” or “Old Bay”
    • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
    • 1.5 cups water
    • 1 pound shrimp (peeled and deveined)
    melt butter drop in flour
    stir enough but not too much
    brown flour (like like to brown until it's as brown as a really old penny)
    drop in onion, pepper, celery, & garlic and stir occasionally for 5 minutes on medium high heat
    add thyme and bay leaf and mix for a minute
    add tomatoes, seasoning, worcestershire sauce, and water and bring to a simmer
    add shrimp and cook to your preference

    That's the low maintenance 15 minute version. I do suatee my onions alone extra first so they dissolve in the end. The Hindis taught me how to make my onions dissolve into the dish.

    The original recipe that's a little higher maintenance is here:

    Anne, I've identified a small but just cause for an Anglo-American language alliance.

    Our languages and vernaculars have a gaping hole in them that must be addressed.

    Think about the otherwise innocuous seeming statement "I'd be more than happy to..."

    As a reference we can surely negotiate some of the below scale, but here is a framework:


    Meaning if someone says to me "I'd be more than happy to..." there is no actual upper bound.

    Am I supposed to enjoy excitement/elation with them or hand them some tissues and give them some alone time?

    Maybe we both ought to Captain this issue from both sides of the Atlantic Anne...

    Maybe everyone is swinging for the bleachers with that answer. Why put an upper limit on it?

    Addendum to this question (cuz it still has meat on the bone)

    The following is incredibly dry. I do not use substances, but if you do you may want to dose up before your watch this. There is value to it.
