New Generation Has Skins Ties

The Hokies-Cavs game at noon tomorrow is going to trigger some memories for Redskins fans what with some players named Grimm, Warren, and Green on the Virginia Tech and Virginia rosters.

(Because it's a free country, you can also vote here.)

...

If you're going to the game Sunday, the forecast is suddenly a little iffy. The Capital Weather Gang says there's a good chance of rain. And prepare to end the tailgate by 12:30, so that you can be in your seats in time for the Sean Taylor Ring of Fame induction ceremony. It's also Toys for Tots day. So, in summary, 1) rain poncho, 2) end tailgate by 12:20; 3) bring new, unwrapped toy; 4) sign up for the twitter feed and mobile text alerts (text REDSKINS to WPOST (97678). (Thought I could slip No. 4 in there.)

Good morning Cyn. I hope all is well with you today.

Just once I would like to see a post talking about how teams need to worry about our running back. He is leading the NFL in rushing. Every week we hear about how we need to worry about the other team. At some point there will be something saying teams need to worry about CP. F Jacobs. He is no Dollar Bill.

I read that article in the paper edition, Cindy. (I'm out east for T-day, with the family in Ashburn, Va.)

I thought we were going to win that Dallas game right up until the 4th quarter, when all of a sudden our lines on both sides of the ball seemed to lose it.

35 TCCLs - Sauerkraut
No Thanksgiving is complete without it. Especially if it's done Polish style, with a little kielbasa thrown in. It's never mentioned with the trinity of turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, but it's required late November dining in my mind.

This is just so wrong. Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday, and the holiday feast should feature American food: corn, turkey, spuds, cranberries, and American wine. No curry, no stir fry, no sushi, no pasta, no Chianti, and especially no kielbasa and sauerkraut.

Screw Jacobs! We have the best rb in football!! Stack the line and make the 12 yr old boy and plexiglass beat us!

Hey, JM and Talent. Are you going to the game, Thunder?
One quibble with the list, Talent; you left out the mysterious Midwestern frozen salads, imaginatively crafted out of Jell-O, cottage cheese, whipped cream, cream cheese, maraschino cherries, nuts, and mayo.

For NYC's take on stopping Portis:

Sadly, I need to be back at work in Ohio first thing Monday a.m., so my main issue will be whether to watch here and drive back in the dark, or leave early and watch in OH.

P.S. So lutefisk is right out, T.E.?

Keep an eye on the weather Sunday...it could get nasty later, esp. if you're headed to Ohio. You might want to beat the rush and the rain...

Having an unexpected Bangkok blizzard here. The kid's are off school not for snow but the real possibility of bloodshed in the streets as the airports are shut down due to the mob of protesters.

Colors are red for pro-government; yellow for anti-government. I'm keeping the Santana burgandy jersey shelved for a while taking no chances that burgandy with an 89 is mistaken for red. The Portis home jersey will have to make due this week.

Growing up in Arlington we always had some jello 'salad' concoction as well. Can't say I miss that. Of course, at the Plymouth Thanksgiving they had see food and venison which I've yet to see on the menu but am all for it replacing the jello-salad or candied yams. They're sweet potatoes, why make them any sweeter with ten kinds of desert waiting.

Yeah, could you share a few recipes with me? My family always complain that I don't have this on offer.

The other one is that wretched fruit cake from that factory in Texas. Claxtons? Kleggums? My brother from Australia told me to "expect a christmas surprise from Texas" and I'm going to forward it to you at the Post. Unless it's BBQ, of course.

That should say seafood.

'Cause you like to know these things, there are no changes in the flex sked for
week 15 (Dec. 14). Gints-Boyz Sunday night game remains (genius!); just a couple of time changes: Steelers at Ravens and Broncos at Panthers games move from 1 to 4:15 PM ET.

Here's one, Talent...I always hated this one as a kid.

This concoction was like our family's fruitcake: It kept appearing, but no one really knew what to make of it. Unlike fruitcake, though, it could not be regifted.

I actually like fruit cake. But then again, I also like Brussels sprouts (at least, if they're fresh...ideally from those stalks you can buy in a farmer's market).

P.S. Cindy, add in the post-Thanksgiving traffic to the bad weather on Sunday, and the idea of leaving early beocomes compelling.

And because one probably should share only tolerable recipes, here you go:
1 6 oz. pkg. lime Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
1 cup crushed canned pineapple (unsweetened and undrained)
1/2 cup mayo
1 cup milk
1/2 pound carton of cottage cheese
Dissolve the Jell-O in boiling water. Let cool; add pineapple. Thin mayo gradually with the milk (so as not to lump) and add to Jell-O and pineapple. Add cottage cheese and refrigerate in a 9x12 pan.

OMG, Cindy! That is so much "the real deal." Today, that recipe would add about 400 gms. of Lipitor to counteract all the fat.

Ben--You're not from the Deep South. Sweet potatoes are named that because they take well to even more sweet: brown sugar, karo syrup, raw sugar, molasses. But you can also enliven them with chile powder, the spicier the better. And, I have a recipe in the queue that adds coconut milk.

Posted by: talent_evaluator | November 28, 2008 11:26 AM | Report abuse

i'd use lower fat mayo and lower fat milk and cottage cheese, talent. and, beep beep

TE,

I like yams. I'm sure I'd like it with coconut milk or chili. I just don't like them with marshmallows or karo syrup and pecans. Basically, I want my vegatables to taste like veggies. Call me crazy. Also, I want my sweets to be without veggies. Here you'll find corn and green beans in your ice-cream and yoghurt. I will make exceptions for pumpkin or sweet potatoe pie. But to come full circle, I've never had sweet potato pie as sweet as candied yams.
