    Chard is underappreciated. I like it julienned in lentil and rice soup.

    Down south, we just call all them greens collards and we smoke ‘em with tufkey wings before we put ‘em into mos’ everthing. Soups and salads the bestis. Didn’t Mike Dukakis take a big hit over chard? From the MENSA-illuminati-ninja press?

    I bought leeks, parsnips, kale and apples at the market this morning. I’m trying to figure out how to use them. I love parsnips but never know what to do with them except roast them along with other root vegetables. Anybody have any advice?

    I’m not familiar with the taste of chard, I’ll have to try it.

    Basset, hilarious Starwars/Thomas Kincade mashup in the previous thread.

    Deborah, Martha Stewart has a great collection of fall recipes, including some for parsnips. Lots of great apple recipes too.

    Deborah at # 4: I have roasted parsnips, boiled and mashed parsnips, and mashed them into mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes. I have also grated them raw for use instead of carrots in carrot cake and zucchini in zucchini bread. I always try to buy a number of lesser known or lesser appreciated veggies in order to encourage the local small farmers to grow a variety of produce. I also found that we really do like rutabagas, as long as they are not the old bowling-ball-sized-wax-covered ones that our mothers served. The smaller unwaxed ones are great roasted, steamed and mashed or added to stews. Calorie King .com reveals they are more healthy and nutritious than potatoes or almost any other kind of root vegetable. I especially like to cook and freeze them for lamb stew in winter.

    So here’s what I did for a late lunch/early dinner since we’re going to a movie this evening: roasted parsnips with chopped kale, shallots (which I had previously) and sausage, all done in the oven at the same time. It was delish. We’re going to see the movie Blue is the Warmest Color. We ended up compromising on the choice. I wanted to see the Gandofini film which I can never remember the name of, my husband wanted to see Gravity in 3d, so we decided to compromise with the Robert Redford movie about the boat tragedy where Redford barely speaks but the timing isn’t working so we’re going to see the controversial movie instead. Hmmm, I wonder if this was one of those briar patch moments on my husband’s account.

    Deborah — Santa Fe cookbook author Deborah Madison has any number of fabulous cookbooks, mostly vegetarian, and she’s my go-to for veggies I can’t find recipes anywhere else. She started out at Greens in San Francisco — terrific writer on all things vegetable.

    When I was going to almost all the weekend games of the Indians, when Cleveland had that killer team back in the 1990s, I’d leave home a little early so I could run in here and buy a few item, almost always produce. It’s a great old-timey place and very easy to get to on W 25 St. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AR7cZWlmO_8

    Been clearing out the freezer before deer season starts, made squirrel and dressing last night. Might be a redneck…

    Bassett, when the “don’t eat squirrel brains” warnings spread all around about twenty-five years or so ago, my squirrel eatin’ friends refused to quit eating them, saying that was the best part of the squirrel. They’d stir up the brains with eggs and scramble the whole thing, if I remember correctly. Do you eat squirrel brains?

    The family went to the a special exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Art called “Watch Me Move.” It’s about animation. It was well worth the entrance fee. It had lots of historic film clips of early animation. Both Windor McKay’s Little Nemo and Gertie the Dinosaaur. Dancing skeletons from a Disney Silly Symphony, some very sureal stuff from the turn of the century, samples of stop-motion animation (a lovely tale of men and dinosaurs by O’Brien a decade before King Kong… There were also clips from Looney Toons, the Flintstone, from Europe and Japan. And nicely set up so you could watch and listen to different clips without disturbing people watching other clips. It appears to be a traveling exhibit so it if comes to your town go see it.

    Then this morning I awoke to the neighbors having a loud argument. Then a gun rang out….

    Only in Detroit.

    No, never had squirrel brains… I usually just cook a few at a time, not enough brains to be worth going after.

    We enjoyed the movie Blue is the Warmest Color last night. It’s 3 hours long, kind of like observing life as it’s happening. There has been controversy about it because of the sex scenes and the temperament of the director. He’s French Tunisian and is a bit of a hot head, apparently. This painting about sums up the movie for me, not that it’s in the movie or mentioned at all, it’s just what came to mind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:François_Boucher_015.jpg

    We went to the Art Institute today, had lunch there with friends, very enjoyable.

    “I take it as an insult, and I will not lie down and say people can call me dishonest, misleading or misrepresenting — I have never intentionally done so and like I say, ‘If dueling were legal in Kentucky, if they keep it up, you know it’d be a duel challenge.'”

    So if frat arse Rand Paul gets caught doing the frat arse plagiarism thing, and he feels besmirched by people calling him a filthy, lying frat arse plagiarist, and challenges them to a duel, does that mean he gets the author of the original text to stand in for him in a KY death match?

  20. brian stouder said on November 3, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Cooz – As I understand it, if dueling has any rules, one is that that whoever the “challenger” challenges is the one who gets to choose weapons.

    Rachel Maddow could, in that case, take a page from Lincoln – when HE was challenged by some maroon (Shields) who didn’t like what Mary and/or Abe had written about him in the papers – and declare the weapon would be broad swords. That shit-for-brains example of the Peter Principal wouldn’t last 30 seconds!

    Alternatively – and more seriously – Ms Maddow oughta call his ass out, on the air, and grant him a public debate in any venue he chooses and at any time, and on any subject.

    Of course, that rat-bastard won’t engage in an intellectual duel, because Ms Maddow has already sliced and diced him on live TV
