Re: Merry Christmas to all Manorites

Merry Christmas from Brian and me too! Just finished opening our gifts to each other - much more chocolate than is good for us but what the heck, eh? Lots of snow here and just about to start shoveling paths for the dogs out back, no doubt finding lots of "goodies" buried along the way. Ho...

Re: This is really getting old - crah reporter message

As a bit of an aside, after reading the above I thought I'd try installing CCleaner to see if it could solve a small problem I've been having with an occasional pop-under. (Ladies with the sort of boobs that make one feel inadequate!) Anyhow, I missed unchecking the little box for installing Avast a...

Re: Favorite videos

Just realized I spelt it wrong - should be "tourtiere". It's basically a meat pie, made from a mixture of minced beef and pork. Here's a link to a recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/20752/fren ... tourtiere/

Re: Favorite videos

Oh my, that takes me back. My French Canadian uncle who had the most beautiful baritone used to sing this every Christmas Eve at the family gathering at my grandparents. He sang it in French, of course. "Minuit Chretien". Still brings tears to my eyes. BTW, my British grandmother used to m...

Re: Netflix Stranger Things

Tons of good things on Netflix, but lots of dross as well. Good idea is to always check the rating of a program on IMDB before you find you've wasted an hour of your life you'll never get back. (Speaking from personal experience.)

Re: Netflix Stranger Things

You've just reminded me that we've watched the first one and have forgotten to watch the rest. Time for a binge watch!

Re: Did Everyone have a good Thanksgiving?

JKEerie, sound like you've bought a beautiful stove! Did you know that Samsung is the top rated range at the moment? I noticed that both JKEerie and Draclvr have stoves that feature steam cleaning. The 2 year old stove I just replaced (I know, sheer extravagance) had steam cleaning which I hated. I ...

Re: booyah?

I thought it was just an expression too, but if it's a chicken and veg stew I've been making it for years! You'll have to ask your friend for the receipt, mbday.

Carl Sagan Day

According to Google, it's Carl Sagan Day and Zen Pencils, a strip on GoComics, published this one back in February 2014. The artwork is fantastic, especially the panel with all famous people through the ages. Most definitely worth a minute or two of your time. BTW, mes sentiments exactement! http://...

Re: The Recipe Exchange.

This sounds good and definitely worth a try. I've put lemon pepper on my grocery list. Re pounding the breast thin, I invested in a meat hammer a couple of years ago and am amazed how versatile it is. It's especially good for crushing garlic too.

Re: The Recipe Exchange.

I made a beef goulash for supper tonight. The meat turned out moist and tender and tasty. Unfortunately only after pouring meat and gravy over the noodles, did I realize the pasta was severely undercooked. At this point, not a lot could be done but struggle through. Won't make that mistake again! (B...
