Yeah...the white boy funk felt some je ne sais pas of the european hydrotherapy
It is clear that Democrats are running a government that is broken. To keep themselves in power Democrats have implemented a strategy to divide and conquer conservatives. Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democrat Congress have rejected American voters and are attacking any conservative opposition and even feeding on the members of their own party. Democrats have failed to govern, becoming true dictators as they lie, cheat and deal away Democracy to push a Progressive Socialist Liberal Agenda. Obama defied voters and betrayed America by ramming ObamaCare through Congress and this is not the change we are looking for. The FIRE CONGRESS PETITION brings conservatives together to nationally support local candidates and take back America
And He Don't Like Change

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
We gotta little festival of our own here in Sacramento that I'm looking forward to checking out. I've enjoyed it whenever I've been in the past, especially when my brother was playing. Friday the wife and I are going to a little deli downtown for the weekly special. This week its (From the website), "Reuben Sandwiches - Our Own Corned Beef on Rye Grilled with Swiss Cheese and Sauerkraut and served with Nancy's Dill Potato Salad (this is sooo good!). Your Choice of a Bottle of Red or a Pitcher of Draft Beer. Come on out and enjoy the beautiful March, er, I mean, May weather!" Hopefully this rain clears up so we can walk the streets and enjoy a little of all the great musicians that will be there. Can't wait!Smile

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
That sounds so deliscious. omg. There's a place called Stanleys here which makes a great reuben. i always think of the Pertrige Family's Kincaid. It's akin to Stella! But 9 course means and pairings make me desire a mid-meal smoke.

I really need to get out of my little culinary BP infused oil realm, my petrohead delusion uncucumbered. Thanks for the inspiration.

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
The sandwich was great, although I can't believe they didn't have horseradish!! I like a little giddy-up in my meals. I went with the sandwich and a beer, but the wife ended up going for the meatloaf and mac & cheese. She said the loaf was o-tay, but the mac was simply divine. Words not usually attributed to children’s food, but that is what she said. Maybe it was just the bottle of Rombauer she shared with her friends? The music was good as well, we stopped and cheered on a band that came from Oregon and were swinging pretty good. They were all like 14-16 years old and just a blast to watch. Good food and good jazz… now that's a good Friday!

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
LOL Oil Thread. not

Yet it is still spilling , day 44 on the fours.

Maybe if the oil hit sFlorida now people may care? It is my vast knowledge profit lingering nation that nimby is a truism.

back to the recipe:

Turtle Soup is almost as synonymous with Nola Cuisine as Gumbo, in fact, it probably outsells the Gumbo in a lot of establishments. Unlike the clear Turtle Soups made in other parts of the world, the Louisiana variety is a dark, robust soup, bordering on a stew. There are also Mock Turtle Soups which are good as well, usually made with Beef and Veal. I have more than a sneaking suspicion that most restaurant versions are a combination of the two. Turtles are said to contain about 7 different flavors of meat, so it would be very easy to slip a more inexpensive meat in with the Turtle, I’ve even heard of some places slipping in some Alligator. I always raise an eyebrow when the “Turtle Meat” in some versions is ground, as opposed to cubed, it’s a red flag that says “Probably Not All Turtle Meat Here.” That’s fine though, they still taste delicious, and it would take a very refined palate to tell the difference.

As far as finding Turtle Meat in your area, you may have a bit of a challenge. If you have a great Asian Market in your area, it’s probably your best bet, they may even have them live if you would like to butcher them yourself. It’s a messy business though, with a lot of blood and Post Mortem squirming. No thanks, I buy frozen. If you do butcher your own you will have access to ingredients that squeamish cooks like myself can’t find in the freezer. Calipash and Calipee, and possibly Turtle eggs. Some connoisseurs have said that they can tell if a Turtle Soup is truly authentic by the lumps of Calipash and Calipee in the soup. Calipash is the dull-green fatty substance inside the upper shell (Carapace). Calipee is the light yellow fatty substance attached to the bottom shell (Plastron).
If you can purchase bone-in Turtle Meat, do so! You can Roast the bones and infuse the flavor into your Beef Stock. Roast them in a 400 degree F oven until a nice deep brown, then add them to your Beef Stock and simmer for 30 minutes to an hour.
Here is my recipe:

Creole Turtle Soup Recipe

1 Cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour

4 Tbsp Usalted Butter
1 lb Turtle Meat Cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 1/2 Cup Onion, Finely Diced
1 Cup Celery, Finely Diced
1/4 Cup Green Onion, Finely Sliced
2 tsp Garlic, Minced
2 Fresh Bay Leaves
1 1/2 Cup Fresh Tomato, Diced
1 Qt Beef Stock
1 Pinch Cayenne
1 Pinch Ground Allspice
2 Tbsp Fresh Thyme Leaves
1 Tbsp Fresh Marjoram, Chopped
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
4 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
3 Tbsp Sherry
3 Hard Boiled Eggs, Whites diced, Yolks Riced
Lemon Slices
5 tsp Italian Pasley, Finely Chopped

Melt the 1 Cup of Butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan, whisk in the flour, cook to make a peanut butter colored Roux. Set aside. For more on making a Roux, click here.
In a large saucepan or dutch oven, melt the 4 Tbsp of Unalted Butter over medium-high heat, add the diced Turtle Meat and saute until nicely browned.
Lower the heat to medium, add both types of onions, the celery, and garlic. Season with salt and black pepper. Saute until the vegetables are tender.
Add the tomatoes, season with a little salt so they will break down, cook for 10 minutes.
Add the Beef Stock, Worcestershire, Cayenne, Allspice, and Bay Leaves. Bring to a boil, then down to a simmer. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally and skimming off any impurities that may rise to the surface.
Whisk in the Roux, simmer until thickened and smooth. Add the Thyme, and Marjoram, simmer for 15-20 minutes more.
Add the Lemon Juice, 3 tsp of the Parsley, and the riced Egg Yolk, heat through.
Serve garnished with Lemon Slices, Diced Egg Whites, and Parsley. Add the Sherry at the table, about 1-2 tsp per bowl.

Serves 4-6
Mock Turtle Soup, counting off the subjects on his flappers

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
Hey e. On my drive home from work today I hear that the spill is floating onto Alabama and Mississippi beaches with the Florida Panhandle next in line. And the oil just keeps a gushing and a gushing. Those of us who do not live in the line of fire can not begin to comprehend the tragedy that this spill represents. I hate to get all negative but what happens if they can't cap it? Does it just keep spewing 'till the whole resevoir runs dry? How much oil is down there looking to get out? Does anybody know?

Thanks for the turtle soup recipe. Guess I should get in on that while there's a turtle or two left. Although we don't see too many turtles up here in Cowfart. Can I substitute beaver or seal?

Sacred cows make the best hamburgers.

I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughtnut... I don't need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don't need to bring ink and paper into this. I can't imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, 'Don't even act like I didn't get that doughnut, I've got the documentation right here... It's in my file at home. ...Under "D".'

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
comprehend the tragedy my friend: death to species FOREVER

i'm sure some scientists in some globules of their owh hold the genetic restart

but really... if this was in monterray bay or chesapeake, do you really think that the tinnitus tree would fall in the unhearing forest?

it's because we are louisiana, and the unfounded prejudice against us is a javelin thrust in the soft underbelly of north america again.

keep tickling the cajun kraakens my friends. we are good people. you are hurting only yourselves now.

nor did i address the scope of your post, but thank you.
again. not to pollute the rest of the grill and bar, let's contain this.

going into philosophy phase, apolitical or unrational, and address the ball, helleaux, ball, golf ball shredded tires, it's gold. when my tv friend clangs some mardi gras doubloons in his hand and says "that's the sound of gold", maybe i should bet on a horse at the Fairgrounds race track. BLACK GOLD was one buried at Jazzfest, a horse buried out of the way. Her mudder was a mudder. Mint Julip thread come hither.

I don't know, what do you want me to say. Billy Nungesser is awesome. Finally this month the tour starts. Life is good. Yet oily.

blind man in the market...nice lyric

RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
got my tickets in the mail and my t-shirts

got my ipod songs on freedom of youtube

got my itinerary and my love


what i aint got is a cork for the oil

perhaps bubba there is some truth to the fact that God is unprovable

this hopeful depends.

i got my i, the writing that makes selffulness wrong

perhaps i should drone on warmachines, nah, i'll drone on why there is no solution to death.

in the past, for every problem was a solution. this oils volcano, not a spill, needs to find some glamour. silver linings say that we are now prepared to show the world how to nor not to deal with mega-disasters. some say to disinvest for the true futures of stock and trade. some cry that there's a tarball with no diaper. i'm a cryer.

the birds are dying, the things beneath the sea are unseen.

why am i even professing this to the professor? he hath no power but only do what he releases best on his skins.

why should i expose myself to these toxins? i pollute my body/temple beyond reproach as it is.
to a level.

as plumes of flocks wean deep into the column, i gas
Does it just keep spewing 'till the whole resevoir runs dry?

i really don't know, i thought you were the smart one, But as the squeaky wheel gets the oil, i wonder if the rotation of the earth will just kind of halt, for lack of lube, when the end comes.

since 2012 is nearing, how glorious to live in these times, to actually witness The End.

must bounce back to no matter what the hopeless may say.

all i knoiw is that my grandchildren may ask me...hey grandpa, what's a shrimp? what's a crab?

pelicans look prehistorically extinct anyway.

laughing gulls baseline freedome racing with the waves, buh bye.

it's just too sad, man. seriously. the only purist beach we shall see shall be the white sands of the desert.

pleae healp me out of this doomful room.

Forgive my sprawling gush AGAIN, forgive me.

for the perp-walk is african as usual

Tell Congress To Investigate BP and OBAMA!

ALERT: When BP's Gulf of Mexico oil platform burned and sank, it killed 11 workers and opened the most destructive ocean gusher of all time - and President Obama didn't say a thing about the horrendous oil pollution for a month!

Select Below to Tell Congress They Must Investigate BP - NOW !
FAX All Congressmen - Demand a real investigation of BP!


Is it because the president has received more in political contributions from BP - $77,051 - than any other federal candidate in the last 20 years? Or that BP's top employees gave even more in 2008: $87,901!

And why has foreign oil company BP - British Petroleum - bungled around failing to stop their undersea gusher for so long?

Is it because London-based BP - fourth largest corporation in the world - knows the oil mess will enrage Americans against offshore drilling and send our rigs and jobs to other oil-rich countries where government regulation isn't so expensive?

Americans need to know how things went so wrong in the Gulf - and WHY!

Congress needs to call BP executives on the carpet - not just with Senate hearings, lame excuses and no action - but a real dig-out-the-dirt investigation.

BP is giving free enterprise a bad name and turning Americans against our richest domestic energy resource - offshore oil production.

President Obama is already using the gusher as a political football to stop all American oil and gas, and convert us to his pet program of using only "alternative energy" that needs permanent taxpayer subsidies.

Select Below to Tell Congress They Must Investigate BP - NOW !
FAX All Congressmen - Demand a real investigation of BP!

Should we trust London-based BP to fix its mess and pay for the entire damage to American jobs they've killed along with American wildlife they've killed?


BP's investors won't like that and will fight real damage payments!

Who are they?

Half of the top six institutional stockholders of BP are foreign

Institutional BP Stockholder Investment in BP
AXA Financial, Inc. (FRANCE) $2,200,784,061
UBS Warburg LLC (SWITZERLAND) $839,034,610
Barrow, Hanley Mewhinney & Strauss, Inc.
(Parent company Old Mutual, UNITED KINGDOM) $774,537,059

All but one of BP's Executive Board of Directors are foreign
Carl-Henric Svanberg (SWEDEN) - Chairman
Andy Inglis (GREAT BRITAIN) - Chief executive, Exploration and Production
Tony Hayward (GREAT BRITAIN) - CEO/MD BP Worldwide
Ian Conn (SCOTLAND) - Executive Director, BP Group
Byron Grote (AMERICAN) - Chief Financial Officer
BP's investors and BP's board don't have America's interests at heart.

Americans need to know that BP, backed by its top investors, will take responsibility for the damage they have done to our great nation.

The United States Congress can't compel testimony from foreign witnesses in hearings, so just holding more hearings IS USELESS!

ONLY an in-depth, naming-names, serious INVESTIGATION will do.

We already know some of the things a real BP investigation will find:

BP was nationalized for a long time:
British Petroleum was a socialist experiment, nationalized by the United Kingdom, which owned 70 percent of the company from 1974 to the mid-1980s! Old socialist ways of thinking stayed with the company even after the U.K. sold off all its shares in the 1980s.

Hard to believe this socialist background? It's true. In fact, it lasted even longer than the official record shows. After World War I, Winston Churchill, while First Lord of the Admiralty, bought a 50% stake in British Petroleum for the nation. That gave the Government a half-interest. Then, in 1974, the Bank of England bought a 25% stake from Burmah Oil, which made the U.K. Government directly or indirectly BP's unquestionable majority shareholder, which thus made it technically "nationalized," even though it had decades of Government intervention by that time.
BP still thinks like a socialist instrument, a part of the government apparatus, willing to do what politics wants. That may be why Obama has been so reluctant to blister BP about its Gulf gusher: he's pretty sure BP will go along with whatever energy policy he comes up with.

Only a real investigation will get to the bottom of this question!

Select Below to Tell Congress They Must Investigate BP - NOW !

Here's something scary a real BP investigation will find:
The most important foreign investment in the United States today is BP's Alaskan holdings, which include the ownership of almost half of the Trans Alaska Pipeline and more than half of the oil in the rich Prudhoe Bay oil field.
The Prudhoe Bay find contained upwards of 40 percent of the entire nation's proven oil reserves - not counting our vast offshore oil reserves, which may now face political doom.
So BP won't mind losing offshore oil production as much if it can get assurances to increase production from its on-shore Alaska holdings.

But think of what that means to the oil rigs and crews that have been producing offshore oil safely and efficiently for decades. BP will sell them out by putting its huge lobbying clout behind Obama's energy policy - CO2 emissions rules that will shut down whole industries; sky-high gasoline prices; rationing electricity with "smart grid" controls that provide what you're allowed, not what you're willing to pay for.

Don't forget: BP regularly lobbies on Capitol Hill. In 2009, BP spent a massive $16 million to influence legislation. During the first quarter of 2010, it spent $3.53 million on federal lobbying efforts, ranking it second (behind ConocoPhillips) among all oil and gas industry interests.

When you have that much lobbying clout preaching roll-over-and-play-dead for Obama, our traditional oil and gas industries will really be dead.

Only a serious investigation can reveal what BP is doing to American politics!

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! You do make a difference.

BP and the Obama White House are two huge problems facing every one of us in the nation today. Floating around Congress right now are various "energy policy" ideas, including nationalizing America's energy companies - remember, BP has experience with being nationalized and enjoying the monopoly status it gave them!
FORCE our government to STOP the EXCUSES!

Select Below to Tell Congress They Must Investigate BP - NOW !
FAX All Congressmen - Demand a real investigation of BP!

Keep calling your Congressmen today, toll free numbers include 1-877-851-6437 and 1-866-220-0044, or call toll 1-202-225-3121 AND REGISTER YOUR OUTRAGE Tell Congress They Must Investigate BP - NOW!

Brick RE: When Food Meets Music: Jazzfest
For those of you who like MRE's... (Meal's Ready To Eat), here's a Mardi Gras costume after Hurricane Katrina, when many of our diets consisted strictly of MRE's. I love the directions inside... "lean on rock or something"... lol.

Maybe I'm strange to you all because I was raised in a town where Mardi Gras was like second nature to me me. Always a party, always a show, always a spectacular of the bizarre, always a reason to party. Did I say a party?

My favourite parade is Bacchus, for some reason. Some call him Dionysus. Must be that side of my brain.

There is even a doggie parade called Barkus, the Dog parade, a tail-wagging tongue in cheek lapdance hoopla of a lap dog shindig hoo haa.

But of course, REX's float Boef Gras, is the epitome of the feast and celebration of debauchery which ungracefully leans into the somber and sober period of Lent.
The Boeuf Gras or "fatted cow" traditionally leads the "throwing" floats in Rex. Shot in New Orleans on Canal Street.

and now for something completely different...

Krewe of Barkus 2010 Doggie Style

....and this is what I wasted my Celebratory 100th post on.
