For my mother... who taught me the recipe and received lots of compliments.

That's too cute. Ah, the characteristic, mottled, pale colors of Easter eggs bereft of their shells. And that charming sulfur smell. Brings me back. :)

Ah, creamed something-or-other on toast! That one takes me way back, too. Creamed chipped beef (Remember when they really "chipped" beef and creamed THAT instead of hamburger or sausage and called it SOS? Ok, probably not. You're too young!)

And creamed tuna, sometimes with chopped hardboiled eggs and leftover veggies (like green beans) tossed in for good measure!

But creamed Easter Eggs? I feel so deprived! I don't think we EVER got that when I was a kid. You are SOOO lucky to have had the perfect childhood. (Ok, forget that line. I'm sure you could tell horror stories too. Every family is a disfunctional family.) But this will become a new card in my recipe file. Thanks for the flash from the past!

we had a version of this with mushrooms and salmon/halibut in Alaska. It's why I hate fish.

No offense to you, Stowe or to the Sacred Family Recipes, but that looks disgusting.

My dad would serve us cans of sardines for lunch. They try their best! :)

Imagine the farts this would create...even my Frenchbo is smiling right now...

I can only hope that feedtacoma doesn't degenerate into one of those blogs that goes on about farting and other unspeakable things like Tea Bag Partiests.

Tea party "infiltrators"

"I can only hope that feedtacoma doesn't degenerate into one of those blogs that goes on about farting and other unspeakable things like Tea Bag Partiests."

Well, I propose we combine the two...

Seeing how these comments have already strayed far from the gastronomic questions of the DNotD strip posted, I must add this clarification here:

For reference- "Tea Baggers" and "Tea Partiers" not the same thing.

Examples as used in part of a sentence:

Tea Partiers march on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.

Tea Baggers wander about Capitol Hill in Seattle.


(I have no desire to be involved with either group- just pointing out that using any derogatory phrase or play on a name to denigrate any group that you don't agree with weakens one's argument and makes it less likely to be taken seriously by those who otherwise might not yet have an opinion formed.)

Jinx-

Of course you are correct. But it delights the left to use the term tea bagger when referring to conservatives in general and tea party activists in particular. Ironically the people who claim to be the most offended by racist comments use the homophobic term tea bagger with decided indifference to the harm it may cause some people.

It's OK to be intolerant of other people as long as you proclaim yourself to be a member of a tolerant group.

I am deeply offended by the farting teabag image.
I would like a letter of apology and .002 in compensation for damage to my emotional state .

by NineInchNachos on 4/19/2010 @ 12:21pm
furthermore I believe the term in question is a gender-neutral + sexual-orientation neutral term. I think also it is not appropriate discussion topic for this family friendly comic strip. Shame on you guys! Think of the children.

@JinxMedic
The term tea bagger being used to refer to members of the tea party members near the start of the tea bag movement when the members of the tea party began holding up signs that read tea bag liberal dems before they tea bag you. Therefore, it is the tea party members who first invoked the term tea baggin at there protests. i.e. tea bag liberal dems. Because these protesters expressed such interest in tea bagging democrats that they were willing to hold up signs expressing that interest, the media, quite fairly, began referring to them as tea baggers

@Fredo
There's nothing homophobic about the term tea bagging, it's generally understood to be a sexual act that can be engaged in by a man and a woman or a man and a man. Look it up on wikipedia, it the entry even provides a visual reference.

@RR

I'm sorry.

by marumaruyopparai on 4/19/2010 @ 12:34pm
Mainly I apologize to Stowe, and his kids, and his wife, this is completely uncalled for. I'll seek help for my political angst.

As long as I'm here though, those eggs look delicious, I'll try that the next time I have left over hard boiled eggs. It's like sausage gravy without the sausage.

@RR
An alaskan who doesn't like fish. . .weirdo.

by NineInchNachos on 4/19/2010 @ 1:08pm
I like fish as pets, not as food.

by NineInchNachos on 4/19/2010 @ 1:14pm
don't you see marumaruyopparai? Now anything they don't like about their movement can be dismissed due too 'anarchist infiltrators'

like Iraq prison torture because of a few 'bad apples'

- anarchist infiltrators
- bad apples
- commie fifth-columnists
- pod people
- zombies

etc. etc.

by The Jinxmedic on 4/19/2010 @ 1:15pm
So much for trying to head off the hijacked discussion. Sigh. Is there any way I can get a class-action share of RR's $0.002?


But in all honesty, Stowe's post Easter family tradition "sandwich" has put me off food for at least several hours. ugh.

by marumaruyopparai on 4/19/2010 @ 1:24pm
@Jinxmedic
It was a noble and commendable effort, I have only myself to blame. Anyway, I think it was just one guy holding that sign, he could have been an infiltrator for all we know. The term is regarded as offensive and probably should be avoided in the interest of mutually respectful civil discourse.

Anyway, don't be put off by the appearance of Stowe's eggs. It's really just a bechamel sauce with bits of egg. Just don't look down while eating it.


by marumaruyopparai on 4/19/2010 @ 1:25pm
@RR

Right, I get it. No accountability because there's always someone else to blame. Now that's politics in America!!!

I'm exhausted now, I'm gonna go make some eggs ala Stowe.

Conversation mostly back on track. >phew<

(Good luck on the Stowe eggs- I'll take a pass...)

by The Jinxmedic on 4/19/2010 @ 2:53pm
At least no one said anything negative about Pit Bulls... ...that always gets the REALLY SCARY people to post. Heh.

Gah! you said the nuclear "p" word!
