Food Thread: Ah....The Food-Induced Thanksgiving Coma [CBD]
— Open Blogger

My Thanksgiving Turkey

Thanksgiving pork roast.jpg


Yeah....I am not intently focused on food right now. A week of cooking and then a few days of nonstop eating will tend to put me off my feed. And I have a confession: I had a salad on Friday night. Please don't hate me! Now, I ordered it with sliced hanger steak, but still.....

food coma 1.jpg

I have found that when I am cooking for things like Thanksgiving, I have very little desire to taste the food as I cook, which is a necessity if you want it to taste good. I do it, but it isn't as pleasurable as dipping a chunk of bread into a sauce on some random Tuesday night in February, or that first spoonful of stew on a cold and rainy March weekend. My guess is that my taste and smell is just overwhelmed with the sheer volume of all that is floating around. It must be an incredible challenge for chefs in serious restaurants to taste and re-taste, dish after dish, day after day.

artisanal 'ette went a different and interesting direction for Thanksgiving.....

rabbit dinner sm.jpg

Very simple Thanksgiving dinner this year.

I went with the lapin with mustard sauce (out of this world!) served with spaetzle egg noodles and veggies.
I used a Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc for the basting, and (Maille) Dijon mustard, of course, for the dish.
Roasted until internal temperature was 160-165F (as close to 165 throughout without overdoing other areas).
And a fabulous red wine saved for special occasions...

A simple Plum Pavolova (the meringue was a bit too sweet to my liking; when I make this recipe again I will cut down on the sugar a lot), but the buttery plums and syrup were luxurious.

We didn't feel overstuffed. It was nice.

I have to brag a little about the pork roast up at the top....it worked out very well, and the convenient thing was that it freed up oven space for all of the other things. If I hadn't been forced at gun point to roast a stupid turkey, the timing of the meal would have been effortless.

One day I will get my way.....

This is what my cheapskate relative brought for dessert:

Not really....
******

If anyone has extra stuffing (I made a ton of it this year just for this reason), mix a waffle-iron portion with a whipped egg and put it in the iron until it's crispy on both sides (did I post a photo last year? Why yes...yes I did! ). It's easy, you can make several of them and stash them in a warm oven until needed, and it is a great base for turkey hash or the last pork chop from the roast you made, or just a couple of fried eggs.

I was going to post artisanal 'ette's Red Beans and Rice recipe, but I think I will save that for another day. Maybe next week?

That, my friends, is called a "teaser."

2 Another good use for stuffing the next morning is to put into muffin pan and create room in center and drop an egg in it then bake.

9 Turkey mostly gone.  Had turkey, cheese sauce + bacon on toast for brunch.  Can't really be a hot brown without a tomato.

Horseradish cheddar loses all its bite when you cook it.
The quick bake=circulation setting on the new oven incinerates bacon.  400 and barely 10 minutes to burnt ends.

21 Hehe, CBD, I didn't know you were going to post those picts. Yes, I made a bunny rabbit this year. It was sublime. And, fairly effortless since I roasted it whole versus cutting it into serving pieces. The mustard sauce was simple to do after taking the roast out. The dish is called Lapin a la Moutarde ( Rabbit with Mustard Sauce ) from the Bourgogne region of France. Here is the recipe: Bourgogne Lapin a la Moutarde Rabbit with Mustard Sauce 1 rabbit, about 3 lb ( 1.5kg ) Salt and freshly ground pepper 1 T vegetable oil 4 Tbls strong mustard 1 sprig fresh thyme 1 oz ( 25g ) butter 6 Tbls dry white wine 2/ 3 cup ( 5fl oz/150ml ) heavy ( double ) cream or creme fraiche Preheat oven to 425F ( 215C ). Rinse the rabbit and pat dry; season with salt and pepper. Oil a shallow oval baking dish large enough to hold the rabbit. Spread the entire surface of the rabbit with 3 tablespoons mustard and place it in the dish. Strip the thyme leaves from the stalk and sprinkle over the rabbit. Dot with thin slivers of butter. Bake for 50 minutes, basting the rabbit regularly with the pan juices and wine. Arrange the cooked rabbit on a serving platter and keep warm. Pour the cream and the remaining mustard into the baking dish and scrape up browned bits with a wooden spoon. Pour this mixture into a saucepan and boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Coat the rabbit with the sauce and serve immediately. Serves 4 The rabbit took longer than 50 minutes, even though I took the roast out of the refrigerator to warm to room temperature or so. The Plum Pavlova I stole from Williams-Sonoma, here http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/plum-pavlova.html I made the meringues the day before. Again, effortless. And I had plums in my fruit basket to use up.

23 This Thanksgiving's Battle of the Cocktails was won by unanimous acclaim by- The Irish Maid 2 oz Irish Whiskey .5 oz St Germaine elderflower Liqueur .75 fresh lemon juice .75 simple syrup 2 slices of cucumber Muddle cucumber in bottom of shaker, add rest of ingredients, shakey-shakey vigorously, strain into glass and enjoy. You can garnish with cucumber slice. Light and refreshing as all get out. The ladies especially enjoyed it.

24 "I have very little desire to taste the food as I cook, which is a necessity if you want it to taste good." Not really. There was no way for me to taste the Chorizo/sourdough stuffing I made until it was ready to eat, but it was quite tasty. I didn't have a recipe either and had never tasted chorizo so I admit, I was *really* nervous about the taste until it was tried. I actually rarely taste things as I make them and they usually work out at least acceptably from basic principles of what goes together.

Heh.  I'm just the opposite.  However, downside is when dinner is served I'm usually full.  To be honest, though, it could be the alcohol and not the tasting.

29 It's getting cold, so earlier this week I made a batch of split pea soup ( a vegetarian version, although I added some chicken broth for meat protein ). A great recipe from the Fit for Life original cookbook. I had a bunch of fresh cabbage to use up. And midweek I made a yuge pot of spaghetti sauce because I wanted to make lasagna to use up some ricotta in the fridge. I froze half the soup (as it states in the cookbook - this one freezes really well), half the sauce, and most of the lasagna (since hubby didn't come home until the end of the week). We had one serving of the lasagna that I had saved in the fridge, and soup for lunches.

32 We had a semi-family get together for Thanksgiving- so there was duck, ham, smoked turkey, roasted turkey and various assorted accompanying dishes. The big surprise for me was my sister's roast turkey- It was absolutely, the tenderest, moistest, most flavorful turkey, I think I ever eaten. According to naturalfake Sis, the only difference was- The turkey was a- Step 5 Organic Turkey from Whole Foods I think Step 5 means that the turkey is free range and that- twice a day they spritz the turkey with Creed Spring Flower perfume and tickle it's ass with a mink glove. Whatever they did, that turkey was larruping'.

Posted by: artisanal 'ette at November 29, 2015 11:41 AM (qCMvj)

35 Y-not- I used fresh pomegranate, fresh dates, chopped , but not too fine. Soaked these two together in a Merlot for a couple hours. I then used a small amount of the orange sauce that comes with the ducks. Just kept adding wine and a small amount of the orange sauce as it reduced. I mashed some of the pomegranate seeds but not all. so it kept a little relish aspect to it. Was even better the second day.

36 I'm sure rabbit is very good, but after having a beautiful, sweet black rabbit as a pet-which unfortunately met an untimely end (but not because we ate it) I don't think I would chose rabbit unless there was no other meat to eat

37 My Thanksgiving ended up going well, despite the fact that I'd been laying aprox 1000 tiles for the few days beforehand and had zero motivation to cook. I took the horde's advice and put the salt in with the butter rub for Mr. Turkey and then I spatchcocked him and threw him in the oven. Hubby said it was my best turkey ever. Then I threw together a quick dressing with the turkey stock I'd made with Mr Turkey's spine and neck and mashed up some potatoes and the obligatory "marshmallow casserole" as my autistic 10 year old calls it. I'd made a pumpkin cheesecake the night before (probably with some thinset added to the mix) and we called it good. Thankfully I was only cooking for my crew so I didn't have to worry about impressing the in-laws. As for what I'm thankful for? Being 99% done with the flooring on the main level of the house.

45 The tasting thing is interesting, I think people just have violently different senses of taste. I tend to taste subtler (or at least different) flavors than most of my family. I taste food while I'm cooking to make sure I don't need to adjust it (or throw it away before ruining more ingredients). I don't find that tasting during cooking ruins any later experience. (shrug)

49 artisanal'ette pea soup with cabbage? Tha sounds good Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian, home is where the heart is, on the bus at November 29, 2015 04:47 PM (gmP76) It is so good. My mother and one of my sisters makes it all of the time too. It has a thousand spices to measure out, but after that it's coasting. One of the simplest recipes. I use a food processor to shred the cabbage. It's called Blue Ribbon Split Pea Soup in the cookbook. They did an amazing job on this recipe. A work of art. Found it online: This recipe is from the Fit for Life cookbook by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. It does require quite a few different herbs and seasonings but it has a wonderful flavor and is much better (and better for you!) than the traditional split pea soup with ham. I have made it for years and split pea soup fans love it. It makes a lot and it does well with being frozen and reheated. Ingredients: 2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (arti-book says safflower oil) 1 cup carrots, coarsely chopped 1 cup celery, coarsely chopped 1 1/2 cups onion, coarsely chopped 1 large clove garlic, minced 2 cups cabbage, finely shredded 10 cups pure water 2 cups green split peas 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon dried marjoram 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon dried summer savory 1/8 teaspoon dried sage 1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon 1/4 teaspoon celery seed 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (optional) (arti-I use this) 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt or salt-free seasoning (arti-I just add extra salt if needed) Fresh ground pepper to taste 1 vegetable bouillon* (I use 2 for added flavor)(arti-I use either my own if I have some on hand, or I buy cartons, or use a good bouillon powder.) 4 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced (can use 2-3 t. of dried if necessary) (arti - I always use fresh) Directions: Heat the butter and oil together in a large soup kettle. Add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and cabbage and sauté, stirring frequently, for several minutes. Add the water, the split peas, the seasonings, and the bouillon. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the parsley and adjust the seasonings. Serves 8 This soup freezes beautifully so freeze any left overs in an airtight container to be used for another meal. http://www.myfrienddebbie.com/article_master.php?id=212

I should have bought 3 or so, and froze the others. I have two other recipes I have been dying to make. All very different. Rabbit tastes wonderful. Not gamey or strong (like some duck or lamb), very subtle and delicious. And if done right, very tender.

I know. But, that one cookbook is amazing. She and her husband both wrote it, I think. Very magical recipes, even though there are very few versus the preaching at the beginning of the book. I love the Cauliflower Toasties (which I still make a lot), and they have a really good spaghetti squash recipe in it. Many good recipes. Soups, wraps and slaws. A great avocado salad dressing too.

63 We had the traditional, oh-so delicious Thanksgiving fare, but decided while cleaning the dishes that Christmas eve will *not* be a big production. Will most likely be lasagna, since mom and I both suggested it at the same time. Easy and make-ahead, too. OK, we'll probably make the sauce and noodles from scratch, but still easy.

64 Sorry to go off topic so quickly, but here I go: Has anyone actually read an honest article about the Colorado Springs shooting? By that I mean one that actually tells where the victims were when they were shot, and where the shooter was when he did the shooting? My understanding is that the shooting started at the Chase bank branch right next to the Planned Murderhood clinic, and that the shooter fled into that clinic after he'd shot the victims. Oh, and here's a good hashtag to get started: #BabyKillerLivesMatter

So the narrative has been fixed any new information that advances the narrative will be instantly and breathless reported any new information that is unhelpful will be memory holes or simply not reported. See the Amtrak derailment and the black gay reporter that killed his female rival as templates.

Posted by: Sharkman at November 29, 2015 05:12 PM (QWtgr) I have yet to see one that wasn't either A) really obviously leaving out information or deliberately pushing a political angle, or B) complaining about how information-free and agenda-driven the coverage is. Hickenlooper's hypocritical bullshit blaming his political opponents is not only disgusting but stupid. How is a man who has no electricity and avoid public places going to be driven by bloggers and talk radio? It's just sick, cynical scapegoating.

Posted by: Lea at November 29, 2015 05:22 PM (vmMMi) I saw Wolfgang Puck has his own pressure type turkey roaster. Very compact, and it supposedly takes less time. I saw him demonstrate it on Fox, I think. Also, he showed off his newer gravy recipe, by roasting the turkey atop a bed of sweet potato chunks, then draining most of the juice from the pan (saving a handful of chunks), mashing the rest of sweet potatoes in the roasting pan, then using the juice with a handful of the sweet potatoes that were roasted, and blending them in a blender equals gravy. The turkey drippings and some of the roasted sweet potatoes. I'll have to try this one day.

Just time tested kitchen sink recipe in my head (I do scratch down a lot and type out notes so I do not forget anything - especially if I'm really busy and there are guests in the house interrupting me.) I'm big on writing down what works for me and what doesn't. My spaghetti sauce is like that. It's my own. But I love using recipes a lot as they teach me new techniques and ingredients. Especially when cooking various cuisines from around the world. I learn something new all of the time. There really is a method to the madness, and cooking (and baking) are truly art forms. I look for harder and harder recipes to tackle.

Take the warm pan grease, add flour in dabs and milk here and there, until it looks right. Too thick, more milk. Too thin, more flour. Pour some pepper in too.

112 "Turkey and ham" family here, but I couldn't find a ham without corn syrup (allergic) so I roasted a turkey breast (in a cooking bag).  It was nice, since I didn't have to wait for the dark meat to get done. 

Roasted garlic chicken (thighs) for "dark meat",  Normally I don't use garlic on Thanksgiving, but this year the gravy contained garlic.   Fit in the same little oven with the slow-baked yams.  I like them better cooked at a lower temperature.  Glad I learned about that.

I'm trying to roll with the disruption of that and other traditions (such as the elaborate stockings we normally give each other). I'm sure we'll have fun, wherever we are and whatever we do.

191 Rabbit tastes wonderful. Not gamey or strong (like some duck or lamb), very subtle and delicious. And if done right, very tender. Posted by: artisanal 'ette at November 29, 2015 05:04 PM

Yes it does.  If you like rabbit and mustard, try this.  It's a favorite of mine:


4Tbsp olive oil
1 large rabbit, cut into serving pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, diced
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried tarragon (or more...I love the stuff, and add a lot)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 C dry white wine
1 or 2 large leeks, white and light green part, cut into 2" lengths and julienned (or cut however else you like)
1 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 C half-and-half (I use condensed milk..it doesn't break)
salt and pepper to taste

In a 12" saute pan, heat oil and brown rabbit parts, about 4 minutes per side.  Set aside.  Add garlic and onions and cook until soft.  Deglaze pan with the wine, return rabbit to pan along with any accumulated juices, add herbs, cover and cook until rabbit is tender, about 35 minutes.  Add more wine if necessary.  Remove rabbit to a serving plate, add leeks to pan, cover and cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender.  Add mustard and half-and-half (or milk), and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste, adjust thickness of sauce to your liking, and serve over rabbit.  Enjoy.

Yes. All have/had long-running mental issues and smoked a lot of pot.
Maybe it was self-medication, but smoking a lot of pot as a child (before age 1 can also increase the possibility of mental issues. So, which one is the cause, and which one is potentially the effect? Who knows how it fits into their array of troubles. Just one of those things these shooters seem to all/mostly have in common that goes ignored.

Toast.  I can make toast.   Limpa is my favorite bread for toast.  Actually, limpa is my favorite bread for everything.  I used to be able to buy limpa from a neighborhood bakery but they don't make it anymore.  I could go down to Chicago and buy  it in Andersonville, but that neighborhood is changing from Swedish to ...... not Swedish.  Too dangerous.  So my only resource is to do it myself.  I generally drag my hands over to the mixing bowl at Christmas to make a few loaves.

Add marshmallows. Microwave at 60% until all melted (could be around 5 or 6 minutes for 10 oz of marshmallows). Stir in rice krispies. Flatten onto parchment paper in a pan/dish/whatever and stick in frig for a little bit. Awesome. Best yet, it all cleans up easily with hot water.

"Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:
1. Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate fed or state law.
2. Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a gov't... (iii) to affect the conduct of a gov't by destruction, etc.;
3. Occur w/in the U.S.

Not only did Massachusetts go totally nuts but the feral government brought loads of thugs in to help lock law abiding citizens in their own houses. The reports of massive firefights that 150 law enforcement and military people were having with those two losers .. who got away, anyhow. ANd, in the end, the cops and feds didn't do jack shit and didn't find joker. It was one of the citizens under house arrest who found the loser in his back yard boat. And then the cops and feds swooped in and fucked all that up, too. But still, I can fly through self-check out at Walmart with 4 pressure cookers and nothing happens, but if I try to buy a can of spray paint I have to be checked and licensed through ...

Don't knock it, willow.  This is a classic recipe in Burgundy.  A little green salad, some wine...you've got a great spring/early summer dish.  There are as many recipes as there are cooks in Burgundy, but this is a good representative one (not the one I use).  Great way of using up chunks of leftover ham around Easter.

It is!  You can substitute unflavored gelatin instead of using the feet, and you can pretty much put anything you want in it.  A truckload of parsley and chunks of ham are the usual ingredients, but you could use turkey, pork, chicken, whatever.  The recipe I use (Jacques Pepin's) uses lots of garlic, white wine, parsley, thinly sliced leeks, and I forget which herbs.  Comes out great, and doesn't take long to make if you skip the step of rendering the feet for their gelatin.

Re: McCain saying Trump causes terrorists - this needs to be shut down every time it is mentioned. These people are saying free speech = inciting terrorism.
So, not just untrue, but advocating for blasphemy laws. No different than Obama standing at the UN and saying the future does not belong to those who slander "the prophet Mohammed".

424 I meant to post this alligator fritter recipe (people were asking about it on Twitter). It's very good and is more meaty than many fritter recipes. Really closer to a crab cake in consistency than to some of the fritters I've had. I usually wind up freezing half of the (cooked) fritters. They store well and revive readily w/ microwaving. Here it is: INGREDIENTS 1 pound alligator tail meat, finely ground 1 Florida sweet onion, chopped fine 1 green bell pepper, chopped fine 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/8 teaspoon mace 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1 teaspoon salt 2 extra large eggs, beaten 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce Optional: 1 teaspoon Florida hot sauce Canola or peanut oil, or a combination DIRECTIONS 1. Grind the alligator or pulverize in a food processor. Add the chopped onion, pepper and minced garlic and pulverize with the alligator in the machine. 2. Sift the flour with the baking powder, mace, dry mustard and salt. 3. Beat the eggs. Add the flour mixture. Add the melted butter, Worcestershire and hot sauce, andcombine with the alligator mixture. 4. Pour canola or peanut oil or a mixture of both into a skillet 1-inch deep. Heat tothe bubbling stage. Drop the batter 1 tablespoon at a time into the hot oil, turning the fritters over with a slotted spoon as they brown. Remove when browned on all sides.

They make mediocre snacks, but *insanely* good alfredo sauce - add a little extra grated parmesan (I grate my own *and* add a bit of Kraft) and black pepper. Plenty of salt built in. Some half-n-half and you're off to the races! The brand is Galbani. I had to look at the package because there is no search term for mozarella parmesan cheese sticks that will give you *any* useful results, just a billion deep-fried recipes and all *other* brands of cheese but them.

but, I parboiled one for, I guess, couple minutes (Chinese cookery rule, lot of roundly boiling water, "make it swim three times"), slit the outer layer end-to-end
EWWWW
and it peeled in a clean layer. Not really so bad. Used "culinary pliers" to get a good grip on that epidermal layer, though.

Add peeled shrimp to the bag and marinate for awhile. Thread shrimp on skewers and grill till done. Eat some of them. The rest go in the fridge until chilled.

585 I think I fall into the purist camp - no condiments on a corn dog. --------------- Anecdotes from the past: Early one morning at Talledega while I was staggering around looking for a cup of coffee, I spied one of my fellow racers, a very competitive/competent rider, gnawing on what was apparently a cold leftover corn dog. He noted the look of rising gorge on my face, waved the corn dog around and proclaimed, "The breakfast of champions!". At some other track (Roebling?), I saw him throw up before a race, and then ride to a first place finish.

We don't have a cookie sheet with sides (well, maybe in a box in the catacombs, but not in the kitchen). For the next batch, we used pizza pans. Worked pretty well, but then instead of the grease running off, they're sitting in the grease. Still, turned out great after paper towel treatment. Mmmm.

600 I live in Ketchup Kountry, Catsup Country. Finest soil and climate for specialty tomatoes by the long-tonne. Used to be the smell of late fall arriving, and raised the real-feel of waiting for school bus by 15, 20 degrees. On the other hand, if you lived with a block or two of where tomato trucks waited in line to unload, there was tomato yuck running in the gutters, and always rats and mice around.

Up to a certain point in economic development, little family-owned tomato pruct plants survived, even if they were selling most of their concentrate to Heinz. When machine-picked tomatoes became the thing, their world started to end. My dad dispatched refinery trucks, and a couple of drivers would take orders on days when they'd be going past the little plants. You'd have to buy a case at a time, so you had to know what you liked pretty well.

All gone now, except the company that makes Dei Fratelli is a mile and half as the scent wends, so we still get a waft now and again. Nobody calls them Dei Fratelli; they're known by the family name or their prior long-running trademark.

I've made ketchup outside in an iron kettle a couple of times, just to show off and piss off the neighbors. It is brown. You have to food-color the hell out of it to get it anywhere near "57" color. Taste was just fine. Recipe note: know what the first ingredient is, other than tomato? Mustard. How about that.

Sugar-free and low-sugar ketchups are hardly any different in taste from the regular item. You can even fool kids. I wonder why they use all the sugar, then.

604 572. Rickl good for you. I'm also too lazy to reduce fresh ingredients down to sauce or "gravy" Ronster, Im ok with a somewhat sweet barbecue sauce or with i.e. honey mustard dipping sauce for chicken fingers but there has to be enough spice or heat and not just sweetness. spaghetti sauce has some sweetness just from the 'maters and stuff, adding the extra couple teaspoons sugar per serving that Prego, Ragu etc do is just yuck.

Aluminum foil is your friend. I got a deep dish baking pan with a rack thinking it would be perfect, but it takes longer to cook the bacon with the rack. I find that the paper towel trick after the bacon is done works just fine, and the foil pan liner makes clean a snap.

662 not at all, why, you sit with them and make them feel in charge, you of course blow out the marshmellow for them. It's been so very long since I've done this, but the charred skin is the best part (as it is with chicken). Can you eat the skin, reignite the marshmallow and get a new skin?

663 I feel you willow. My cousin makes smores with her kids in the fireplace. Most of the corn dog recipes I just looked up on Pinterest have bisquick. Does that seem right? Posted by: Lea at November 29, 2015 08:51 PM (vmMMi) right it's one of our get out of the winter blues tactics for the children.. and bisquits? perhaps that would be different than our usual grahm crackers, but i dunno that it would fly with the tots

684 Posted by: Bertram Cabot Jr. at November 29, 2015 08:56 PM The only thing I do after cooking that meal (or anything else in the pan) is drain off the fat and then hit it with a scrubbing pad and hot water; no soap...ever. Red wine works really well to deglaze the pan, but that is always followed by hot water and the scrubber. Back on the stove top to dry it and wipe it down with Crisco or Manteca to keep it from rusting.

702 Snow Floss sauerkraut, The Fremont Company, Fremont, Ohio.

Silver Floss is "GLK Foods" formerly Great Lakes Kraut, HQ in Wisconsin.
But I'm always suspicious when they close a local plant close to the crop.
Could be from Peru, for all we know.

One of my bigger olfactory shocks in traveling was in Emporia, Kansas. As I approached the city, I smelled delicious cooking chicken. As I got closer to the processing plant, it got a little overpowering. Right in front of the plant gates, the smell would, what did AOP say? -- knock a maggot off the gut-wagon?

Found a nice cheap motel just far enough away, got a great steak in a diner.
Nothing against Emporia. Campbell's (now Ghey Campbell's) has a yuuuge chicken plant in Napoleon Ohio, hell of a town. Smells great from the river side. Do not drive around back on the county road. That's where "the rest" comes out.

706 Our Thanksgiving trip included a stop at our favorite cheese factory near my Dad in Stevens Pt. WI. It's ca. 1o miles w in Rudolph. I mentioned this the other night in an ONT, but thought it apropos for the food thread. If you are ever near there GO to WI Dairy State Cheese Comp. My wife swears by their butter. Makes everything better inc baked goods. It actually separates like old time butter used to when heated. The cheese is so much cheaper than anything along the interstate. 7 yo sharp cheddar is ca. 8.25, other places over twice that. Also they are in a cheese co-op so they carry over 100 varieties.

Some of the local Mexican lunch joints locally don't peel the tongue, just cook it up and dice it up.  There is gristle at the root end, so it is important to get that trimmed back.
There are times when I am wondering if I really want a burrito that will taste me back, but I do love me some tongue burritos. And in a burrito I don't have to check to see if I can see the tastebuds.
