    Championship Sunday Grammy’s Gravy



    much as I hate to give my nemesis props.....wow! major props!

    the “three philosophers” beer makes me think of the airbnb I shared in philly in ‘13 with some other degenerates.

    I just got this steamer and I love it so far. 

    Steamed asparagus and cutlets!


    What do you mean steamer? Looking at it on my phone. I love tools but don’t know what I’m looking at.

    f me...you peel apsaragus? Seems like a lot of work. Worth it?

    I tie the asparagus up and stand up in a sauce pan.
    (Although that steamer looks sweet, I am working at trying to slow the accumulation of cooking tools.)

    Why do Americans not pronounce the 'a' in Mozzarella and Ricotta?
    Or is it just a Sopranos thing?
    Because most Italian Americans are descendants of Southern Italians- mainly Napoli and Sicily- where the ends of words get cut off.
    That's interesting because many Italian Australians are Calabrese or Sicilian but still pronounce the 'a'.
    After marrying into an Italian family  my biggest struggle was pronouncing  capicolla the “correct” way.  Lol
    Like Tony Soprano pronounces it? Gabagool?
    Michael Scott’s pronunciation is pretty good too. 
    That's the only exposure I have to that word...obviously I would not have guessed it means capicolla!

    I hate bad pronunciations.  Capicolla should not be pronounced 'gabagool' according to the rules of the Italian language.
    Should Thuringia be pronounced 'tulingen'?  I don't know enough about German to be sure, but I doubt it.
    The damn Brits with their R's added and subtracted...


    All you kids get off my lawn!
    Champagne Supernova has always bugged me for this reason.  "In a champagne supa-nover, a champagne supa-nover in the sky."
    And no way is capicolla "gabagool," that's just nonsense.  Do Italians say "I'd like an ice cold Goog Gool" when ordering a Coca Cola?  Come on.

    Not sure there’s many top chef viewers here, but Fatima from a couple seasons ago died today at 29. Seemed like an awesome person. So sad. Too fucking young

    I have been cooking more on the weekends and I chop a lot of onions. I'm at work and my fingers smell like onions.

    Try one of these stainless steel hand odor removers. It's just a lump of stainless steel, made into the shape of soap (it's generally made for garlic smell, but it works for onion too). I know it's hard to believe, but it actually works to just rub your hands with these things. I bought one for my sister one Christmas, and she was in shock when she discovered that it actually completely takes the smell of onions and garlic off her hands when she cooks (this is just one example of it - there are several different brands to choose from).

    I get that all the time.  Onions, garlic, and stinky bud.
    It's a fucking health hazard because I can't quit smelling my fingers and basking in the glory.

    It's not at all for when you're at work in an office, or on a date or something. It's disgusting. Garlic or onion fingers can be pretty off-putting to others.

    No thank you, lol. I'm one of the people who are off-put by it. Stinky hands make me want to puke! It's bad enough when it's my own, but if they're someone else's hands, that is so gross! It makes me feel like I don't want them to even touch me, lol. Cooties!!! And when you see someone sniff their fingers, too, which people with garlic and onion hands tend to do.... SO GROSS! It always makes me think about the poop hands from Mallrats! :sick:

    So many comments spring to mind but I will keep things relatively clean.  :lol:   

    Remember reading the book Heat and Bill Buford saying his wife complained about his smelly hands when he started working at Babbo,
    (Great book.  By the author of Among The Thugs, which is an all time favorite)
