I'm just glad there aren't any in Australia.

No, you folks "down under" just have some of the most deadly creatures on the planet, that's all...

Oh well, I'm weird. I like cold chili, too.

Bleh! Next you'll be telling us that you like cold pizza for breakfast.

I agree with you, Sue. Cobbler should be served warm with a dollop of slightly sweetened whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Pre-ground nutmeg is rather mild and quickly loses any sharp pungency it may have once had. If you used pre-ground nutmeg that had been in your cupboard awhile, the cobbler will probably be fine. (I'm guessing you did not start with a fresh whole nutmeg that you hand-grated on a microplane grater.)

Blueberry cobbler is delicious, but blueberries are out of season in our area right now. They stop showing up in the farmer's market around late August. I miss them!

Apples, fall plums, some varieties of pears and two kinds of persimmons are more in season in NoCal right now.

I can absolutely, 100%, guarantee you that my husband is not playing this game.

Eric is a very common first name and lots of last names begin with K.

Ok fuzzball, rub it in, I'm not feeling great, I'm still recovering from being sick.

Vic, I was just being playful and no offense was meant.

I'm sorry you are still feeling unwell and I wish you a speedy recovery.

That Calvin and Hobbes cartoon definitely involved a Tauntaun.

But don't worry, it was just a wookie... er, uh... I mean a rookie mistake.

Angela. Ever have a cool ranch taco at Taco Bell?


I have only eaten at Taco Bell once in my life, and it was before the invention of the cool ranch taco.

My fast food experiences are quite limited, and therefore somewhat memorable. I've eaten at McDonald's twice in my life. I remember the first time. It was on a field trip with the Girl Scouts in the sixth grade. I remember liking the hot apple pie. The second time was several years ago in Arizona with nieces and nephews who were lured by the "contrived collectable" toys in Happy Meals at the time. I ordered a salad. It was ok.

I ate at a Carl's Jr. once, about 25 years ago, on a road trip with a friend to LA. It was the first time I had ever had waffle fries and I remember them as being dangerously tasty, when dunked in ranch dressing.

I had Kentucky Fried Chicken a few times as a child. My parents never bought it, but I had it in the homes of friends. Eric and I took a nephew to KFC when we were on a road trip several years ago. I remember finding the chicken greasy and the mashed potatoes salty.

I put on extra weight very easily. Lucky me for having such an efficient body!!! No calories wasted here!!! When that plane crashes in the Andes, I'm going to outlive everybody on board. In the meanwhile, I try to keep my weight somewhat in check by avoiding fast food. If I am going to down extra calories (and trust me, I do this early and often) I'd rather they be calories from foods I've had a hand in making.


But really, if your care about Vic. How come not one of you have even tried to talk like a friend and stepped up to the plate and say the obvious.

Many of us in this community care deeply about Vic. Certainly Vic has received kind and supportive health information from friends, through both public posts and private pms. What Vic ultimately chooses to do is between Vic and his personal physician.

My friends, stress is a big factor in overall health.

Personal journal style threads can be a form of stress relief, and can therefore be health-promoting.

If I had started a personal journal-style thread about the complexities of my life, I think that I would feel very, very, very stressed if I had to defend myself all the time from accusations that I am a chubby little raccoon and that being a chubby little raccoon increases my health risks. It would defeat the purpose of me having a stress-relief thread if defending myself, again and again, ultimately resulted in increased stress.

Let us all be kind to one another, please.

I'm glad you are having fun with this contest!

Eric has really cut down on Mountain Dew over the past few years, so I'm sorry I haven't been able to contribute to your point count. I love Cool Ranch Doritos, but I never buy them because I know how weak I am. If I encounter them at parties, I have to force myself to walk away from the bowl.


Next 20
