Thanksgiving Break (With Kittens)


Happy Thanksgiving, US-ians!

No misogyny today, just videos of cute kitties eating and falling asleep. I am going to spend the day eating and playing with kitties and finishing up season one of Doomsday Preppers. I don’t know why I’m so fascinated by people with delusional beliefs, but I am. And I guess most of you reading this are as well, huh?

Now the videos:

This one doesn’t involve eating or sleeping but, come on, it’s adorable!

Actually that’s another distinction – if something can only be eaten with a spoon I’m unlikely to classify it as a salad.

I’ve always grow up calling any sweet “vegetable” side dish with a weird color (like a mixed gelatin/fruit/whatever dish, or a bowl of fluffy Technicolor stuff) Jell-O salad. It’s like appropriated a brand name for generic use, like calling any disposable tissue a Kleenex. Of course, even if there’s no gelatin in it, like Watergate salad, there could be a Jell-O product in there since they also make instant pudding mix (Does Jell-O export to the rest of the world? I don’t remember seeing any in Irish or German markets). I’ve never heard it referred to as just “salad,” though. That’s always stuff with lettuce. Like other people said, once you move away from lettuce you have to start adding the modifiers.

@Dvärghundspossen – I used to be a vegetarian, and I remember the shock when I found out what gelatin desserts really contained. I was craving sherry trifle at the time, too, darn it. I tried to make some with raspberry agar agar powder instead. That stuff set up like like rubber. Not what I was going for. 🙁

I hope all the USians had a happy Thanksgiving. I’ve had a weekend I hope never to repeat – let’s just say anti-nausea tablets and some form of Valium have been added to the pharmacopeia.

Aha! Well, do you eat chicken? I have a chicken recipe I suspect it might be good in. I think I can’t get to the recipe until tomorrow, but involves a bit of nervous basting.

Also, it is delicious drizzled over delicata squash… If you like that kind of thing.

@Katz – I know it’s used in a lot of meat glazes, but I don’t really know how to do any of that. It’s good in cocktails (gin + sparkling wine) and on Greek yogurt with museli as breakfast.

Pomegranate molasses is good with chicken. I don’t know where my middle eastern cookbook is, but I agree with the suggestion of subbing it in for honey in chicken recipes.
