Our Christmas Eve Feast of the Seven Fishes … sans two!! Mussels, clams, shrimp, squid, and scallops [ya know, food that keeps on movin’ while ya keep on eatin’ … lol – certainly not for the squeamish (squirmish? … LOL)] in a white wine tomato sauce … AND so much too!! Served it piled-mile-high on capellini … had it swimming in sauce (makes for great bread dipping – 4 kinds too, lol) … oh, and puh-leeze don’t EVEN begin to rag on the freshly grated parm regg … I wrote that book motherfuckers!! Just love cheese with my pastas … ANY pastas!! Oh, and I gotta give credit where credit is due … had this wonderful fish dish catered courtesy “an” Italian place … no danistrulythemanhandywork here folks!!
A coupla pics, enjoy …
LOVE this meal, so hearty, so wintry … so European!! It takes a lot of shopping, then prep work … but once it’s done, it’s done, and the best part … leftovers for days!! All the ingredients go into my Rival™ Crock-pot® … it’s an old unit, made of porcelain – HEAVY, and simple … only 2 settings (low and high) unlike the plasticky programmable ones they make today!! Newer ain’t necessarily better!! I like that … gonna make that mine, insert it here, lol. “newer ain’t necessarily better” – danistrulytheman. Ingredients usually remain constant, only slight variations … lots of root (root-type) vegetables: potatoes, turnips, carrots, onions … stewing beef AND stewing veal (for a twist) … is always tomato based … and I always add mushrooms as y’all know, lol!! Secret ingredient: Del Monte French Style Seasoned Green Beens … there you go, “food of love” … “happy happy” – Emeril … “yummo” – Rachael, lol!! Served with 8 year old white cheddar (sublime), an Italian peasant loaf … once again, too much yappin’ … enjoy the pics motherfuckers!! 😉
While you’ve been nauseous
And so I drink to health
While you kill yourself
And I got just one thing
That I can offer
And take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
And take it out on me
That’s what made me think, gave me pause when I eloquently wrote on another site without nary a response. I mean I did receive a “like” for my thoughts … y’all remember my good friend S.S.? … well she’s now my best friend S.S. … LOL!! I always know I can count on her, but when my words didn’t elicit any other response, it finally dawned on me (5:05 a.m. – I even remember the time, don’t ask, lol) it was only visible to three people in total … and one of them was me … sheesh, lol!! All for naught? Not a motherfucking chance … gonna copy/paste for it to live for eternity on danistrulytheman … and for ALL to see, hopefully more than the trifecta (moi, S.S. and the cheerful cheerleader, lol)!!
Here’s the transcript:
Nobody will be happier than I when this contest is finally over. Hardly ever show my mug here anymore, or have anything to say … appears I’m not the only one either, I haven’t seen much of the regulars lately as well … Maureen, Katrina, Dawn, Sandra (no, not the one exiled to Indonesia – Smith … not to mention Carrie XOXO). And for the record: I never bothered to sign up and enter the Shopping Spree. TSC, you blew it big-time this time – London Calling was great … contestants were allowed to enter once and ONLY once, then wait and see who wins … all I’ve seen for the past month+ is so many complaints from so many wanting codes, wanting to enter multiple times (I assume there’s a limit) daily, and then when they are unable or not allowed whine & cry (boohoo), threaten to quit and never shop again?! Please, by all means go ahead and quit … and quit filling tSC FB with all of all your spam!!
… exiled to Indonesia … lol, that shit still cracks me up!! 😀
I’ve been wallowing in my own confused and insecure delusions
