, you beat me to this. I asked Glark
if we could have a speculation thread and he said:
Yeah, spec thread is totally kosher but if people won't move discussion to
the episode threads when it airs then it's trouble for the section since the
episode threads are the main barometer of forum health for us.
So, as long as we move the talk to the appropriate show thread when it opens up, we should all be good. Okay? Everybody got that? So, we can speculate away! Whoot!
Mole. A'la semi-homemade? Just don't even think about it Snadra. Mole is complex, nuanced, everything you're food isn't. And if you think, "oh it's that spicy chocolate sauce from south of the border, that will be so easy to re-create" you are dead wrong. It has icky garlic! And no, you can't substitute corn nuts
for the seeds!!!
Definition: [MOH-lay] From the Nahuatl molli, meaning "concoction," mole is a rich, dark, reddish-brown sauce usually served with poultry. There are many variations of this spicy Mexican specialty, usually depending on what's in the cook's kitchen. Generally, mole is a smooth, cooked blend of onion, garlic, several varieties of chiles, ground seeds (such as sesame seeds or pumpkin seeds--known as pepitas) and a small amount of Mexican chocolate, its best-known ingredient. (Some Americanized mole recipes use bitter chocolate.) The chocolate contributes richness to the sauce without adding overt sweetness.
Jarred MARINATED artichoke hearts is my guess. And let me tell you, using marinated when you meant to use "packed in water/brine" gives you a whole 'nother flavor in your dish. Why yes, I have done this, why do you ask?
How can you have "creamy" with a cheese straw? I thought the whole reason you enjoy a cheese straw was for the crispy factor? Or is that just me?
Definition: Strips of cheese pastry or plain pastry sprinkled with cheese, baked until crisp and golden brown. The pastry strips are sometimes twisted before baking. Cheese straws are served as an appetizer or an accompaniment to soups or salads
There will be a dessert and a drink, how can there not be??
