Re: “Munchies

Thanks for the question -- and the catch. We accidentally omitted 1 cup of red wine in the ingredients, Anita. The recipe's been updated.

Re: “Munchies

How much wine should we use in the stew?

Re: “Flash in the Pan

I had 40 lbs of tomatillos in the garage from the summer and all i can say is WOW!!! this is an amazing recipe to put them in. I have made it three times since i saw it in the Indy. I made it for hunting camp the first time..Amazing! Warms to the bone and gives you the later afternoon energy to get out there in the cold. The second time i made it for a party and everyone was dancing around in habanero sweatyness. the third time is just for freezing and warming up during this bone chilling cold evenings in January.
One change that i made to the recipe is to roast the tomatillios, peppers, onions and garlic. Gives the dish an amazing smokies. Never in three times making it have i used the same mix of peppers, change it up for the goodness of your soul.

Re: “Munchies

you mean the plethora of pretentious hipster eateries here aren't enough to keep everyone satiated? "Convenience Food" restaurants give me the chills....they promise ambrosia on a plate, but i always end up feeling like i got "Ye Olde Sock" instead....and if you knew what was in those trucked-in menu items offered at most chain places, you would gladly crawl back to your own kitchen and try...try...try to make your own special is not that difficult, and much more gratifying. trust me.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

I love tomatillos and also believe they are misunderstood and underutilized. After making this yesterday, I can say with absolutely no shame that I would eat this off the floor. Truly a culinary experience of a lifetime, and one that I'll be making over and over.

Re: “Munchies

At least Chipotles attempts to use local and/or organic food when available. Chik-fil-A? Never. Why would I want to give my money to a company owner who's a hate-filled bigot? And Olive Garden recently hired a "turn-around" expert, who advised eliminating the endless bread sticks and salad. Actually, they'll still be available, but they won't be piled up on the table -- you'll have to ask for them, as so many are wasted. Makes sense, I guess. Plus it will save mucho money.

Lost in the discussion of low-fat vs. high carb diets is that the high carb diets of the 1980s, such as the target diet, were also premised on regular aerobic activity. Carbs are significant to aerobic activity. What about all those pasta feeds for marathon runners? Further, those high carb diets are focused on complex carbs, not sanctioning the empty calories of high fructose corn syrup.

Heavy metals are poison that will make you sick and in time kill you! People in China are sick and dying from heavy metals by the hundreds of thousands! Its already in American food due to imports from China and this is a fact! Anyone contaminated with heavy metals in and away from China should be detoxing with the natural mineral called Zeolite that has been proven to safely remove both heavy metals and radiation from the human body. For more information on this detox do a search for the single word Zeolite.

Eating BSB food is like seeing Unwound or Rorschach play in a basement in 1993 to 20 people... you know it's the shit and you wonder when more people will get it.

Call me a traditionalist; color me an old fart, but all this sound too bizarre for my tastes.

No thanks. I'll take my business elsewhere.

I'm not sure it would be the "happiest hour" at Flathead Lake when someone is drunk and wrecks in their boat killing someone or themselves but hey - why not. What are we fighting? Bring it on...Montana definitely needs more alcohol abuse made easy. Please.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

Hi Ari -- interesting column on edible seaweed. But I have to disagree with the statement 'Nobody is displaced by seaweed farming.'
Even wikipedia has a discussion of the negative impacts of seaweed farming.

and those shallow coastal areas where seaweed is farmed was important habitat for many marine species.
All kinds of farming displaces something. And as population grows, any sort of farming can get big enough to be a problem. Vicki Watson

Re: “Happiest Hour

I really don't think casinos need any help - they don't need a special story in the Independent as advertisement!!! Enough people go to the casinos that shouldn't go - MOST. There's always the token casino worker that professes to winning a large amount of money - that's just to get the people in there to gamble more - they're thinking "you never could be my lucky day". Chances are, it's not. Chances are, they'll lose that $5. they paid for their "free" alcohol and then some. Come on!!! More culture, less casinos!!! They're destructive in my opinion.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

Why anyone would contaminate/poison a healthy, low-fat, CLEAN food like tofu with a slab of a hog's stomach is beyond me! There's absolutely nothing in the "flavor" of pig-fat that can't be replicated with the proper herbs and seasonings. In fact, there is no "meat" that is better than a correctly prepared plant based alternative. Bacon as with every other flesh product comes with great costs. It's bad for human health, catastrophic for the environment, and a living nightmare for animals. There's never been more compelling reasons or a better time to opt for a plant based diet.

Re: “Flash in the Pan

This is truly sad. Not eating ("giving up") meat ONE day a week is a "sacrifice"? And requires us to "sympathize" with people who want to cut back? Geez (insert eye roll here).

Ari says, "Alas, when those accompanying ingredients are plant-based, as is the case with vegetarian tofu dishes, it's a laughable meat substitute."

Not only is this wrong (you've never tried Tofu Scrambler seasoning, apparently! and added corn, sun-dried tomatoes, and Daiya cheddar cheese shreds and served it with salsa), but who says anyone eating a vegetarian/vegan tofu dish is looking for a "meat substitute"?

As for your "ancient Chinese secret," if you're going that route, there are plenty of options besides pork:…

Kudos to anyone and everyone who decides to eat a compassionate, meat-free diet for one or more days a week without approaching it like some kind of sentence or sacrifice (geez, Americans!). My brother-in-law and his wife decided, as a birthday gift to me, to observe Meatless Mondays. They've ended up enjoying it and learned to cook in new, creative ways. Their grandchildren know about it and understand it. I'm grateful to them for their embracing attitude, unfettered by some weird dedication to consuming animal carcass every single day.
