Quote from: K_Dubb on September 19, 2020, 10:55:30 AMSir, I am not sure about an acronym but I believe we should speak frequently of "closing the butter gap" because, to my ears, it sounds vaguely lewd.
Quote from: ItsOver on September 20, 2020, 10:04:54 AMIndeed. And donâ€™t forget ice cream. We need REAL ice cream, with natural ingredients. I want something that came from the teats of a cow. Man cannot live on butter, alone!â€œbutter to spread, ice cream to lick, for all!â€
Quote from: K_Dubb on September 20, 2020, 10:20:20 AMOh absolutely! The same standards -- higher fat, lower moisture -- should be applied to all dairy products... ...I am enjoying this rural fantasy you are pushing but I am not sure the good people of Young's will have the same tolerance for my big-city smashy-looty ways and I will probably be strung up by my skinny jeans should I ever set foot in there.

Quote from: Juan on September 20, 2020, 06:25:22 PMPresident pate It has come to my attention that there is now a disastrous shortage of paprika in American stores. Instead of coming from Hungary, Guatemala or Mexico, modern paprika comes from the slave holding provinces of Red China and is no longer imported. This shit needs to be fixed.

That particular location took several weeks or a month before their supply was replenished: but they had all the other bulk spices that they normally carry; only Paprika seemed to be Out Of Stock. I usually buy Paprika in bulk, although I do have a few smaller Hungarian containers of Mild-Hot and Smoked/Unsmoked as well. It has always made me wonder why Paprika which is derived from a plant native to the New World: why the "best" Paprika is produced in Hungary?I can only imagine that Hungary's climate is roughly analogous to some part of the Continental United States; therefore: no reason at all why we cannot Make America Pate Again by promoting a strong, vigorous and domestic Paprika industry for both National Strategic Paprika Reserves and for export purposes. Some varieties of Paprika are Smoked: the United States already has a strong domestic industrial base in the Bar-B-Que food sector which many Dirty Foreign Countries attempt to seize control of. Paprika is a vital ingredient in the BBQ world: why not use the Industrial Smokers already employed in the production of Bacon, Pastrami and Pulled Pork to also produce a superior Domestically Sourced Fine Smoked Paprika?These Paprika shortages, must end! In order to address this critical Food Supply issue that affects National Security; I would like to initiate, at some point during the first 100 days of my Administration, the necessary ground-work to fix that shit. New agriculture opportunities, Paprika production industrial infrastructure and Corporate/Entrepreneurial business ventures in this Critical National Industry will abound.I envision the ability of every Citizen to properly garnish their Hard-Boiled Deviled Eggs appropriately no matter their Race, Class or Religion. This great nation will become internationally recognized as the Primary Source of Paprika, and will be a beacon of hope and model to the world. The supply of Paprika will be plentiful and affordable to all Citizens (except Kansans, because fuck them): from low-quality Paprika suitable for aid in oven browning of casseroles, whole chickens and pork roasts to sublimely Smoked Half-Sharp/Sharp Paprika for flavor enhancement of soups, sauces and stock: NO proud American will be embarrassed by empty Paprika shelves at the grocery, warehouse or farmer's market.The position of Paprika Czar in my Administration is now available, with a plum, to any Citizen of Good Standing in exchange for a vote and/or multi-vote!https://youtu.be/9ICfpu0nV7kI thank you in advance!

Quote from: pate on September 21, 2020, 03:37:13 PMI can run the sound-board; I do not know about co-hosting: I do not have a web-cam. I do have an Olympus digital FE-47 camera that has video capability, but I am unsure that I can use that as a "live webcam" so it would have to be that or one of my device's that have built in cameras (tablet and several different cell phones)...Perhaps I should research that shit and fix it? Also, I would have to wear my balaclava and BCG sunglasses for security purposes, apparently my campaign does not rate Secret Service protection and I must protect myself from assassination attempts.Maybe eMCee can digitally blur my face on the stream, one of those voice garble-er things would be cool too, although my voice is already out there for real world comparison...I would hate for a random psychotic passer-by to recognize me and try something stupid that would result in their death just because I happen to be running for President and they are all crazy and shit.I should probably come up with a plan to fix this nationwide random psycho passerby shit; now that I think of it.pate/K_Dubb 2020"We are going to fix this shit"

Quote from: ItsOver on September 20, 2020, 11:37:04 AMHeh, heh, heh... you indeed might have to tone down the â€œbig-city smashy-looty waysâ€ within the Yellow Springs â€œsphere of influenceâ€ but just think of Yellow Springs, including Youngâ€™s, as an idyllic, utopian wonderland, populated with free-thinking hipsters and hippie types, welcoming to all. Itâ€™s more of a Bob Dylan paradise than a â€œletâ€™s burn this place to the groundâ€ abode. But thatâ€™s what nearby Dayton and Cincinnati are for! That way you have the advantage of kicking up your heals, with fellow revolutionaries, when the mood strikes, wreaking havoc for a day or two, then retreating to a safe,bucolic, dacha. With easy access to fresh, pure dairy products, farmer market weekends, incense, and peppermints! One needs to consider these things, in the tea time of life.

Quote from: K_Dubb on September 22, 2020, 09:26:08 AMHeavens, that sounds an awful lot like cannoli! Which I adore, but have never attempted since I don't have the little tubes to fry them on. Can you, in fact, simply fry a preformed manicotto? (I am just guessing on the singular form of "manicotti".) I shall hold all forms of lute-smashing in abeyance until this question is resolved though in a pinch may take my frustrations out on a cheap plastic ukulele I bought in Hawaii that never stays in tune.
Quote from: paladin1991 on September 22, 2020, 11:45:54 AMI'm a little tired of shit not getting fixed. Maybe it's time to focus on 'pushing some shit.' K_Dubb, you're up.
Quote from: K_Dubb on September 22, 2020, 12:22:37 PMThis is the time of year when our thoughts turn to baking for Christmas! Just yesterday I made a fyrstekake (sort of a rustic almond tart thing) to be carefully wrapped in tissue and tinned for several months, during which time the subtle flavors of almond and cardamom suffuse the whole in an intoxicating wash and the pastry, hard and browned from the oven, gradually softens as the almond filling releases its retained moisture, ultimately yielding a velvety, supremely buttery crumb. Needless to say, these delicacies must be stored way up high, so high that small children and even belligerent teenagers can not reach them.Fudge is also one of the delicacies we make around this time. You would be amazed at how long it keeps if stored properly! Now I am aware that, on your side of the mountains, you pride yourselves in the old ways of food preservation like canning and smoking but we have our own tricks and, if you want to come over here, I will pack your fudge so high it will be nice and safe until Christmas.
Quote from: pate on September 22, 2020, 12:46:58 PMMy mother does something similar, although it is Fruit Cake. When they are done cooking they get wrapped in Cheesecloth and put in the refrigerator where they are given a shot or two of Bourbon on what I believe to be a weekly basis. This keeps them from getting moldy, and also contributes to the flavor among other things.I think you should experiment with this fyrstekake of yours and perhaps take one or two aside for an experiment to see if feeding the things some appropriate flavored or unflavored eau-de-vie might, shall we say, enhance the enjoyment when Christmas arrives? Maybe an Almond schnapps or something?pate/K_Dubb 2020"We are going to fix this shit"
