There was a lot of discussion on a PSU football message board earlier in the fall on Boilo.

It’s gone now and not archived unfortunately.

The one thing I remember is that the hard cores insisted that nothing was to be used but Four Queens 101 proof whiskey.

If I can dig up anything else, I’ll freepmail you.

Glad you liked the combination.

I seldom have wine in the house that is usable for cooking. I like a sparkling Bellini (made with grape wine and white peaches from Italy).

While you're baking and cooking, here's an easy Christmas craft. You can buy bushels of these silvery ornaments really cheap---and even cheaper at post-Christmas sales.


MARTHASTEWART.COM This simple technique lends new, shiny glass ornaments the muted, authentic appearance of antique mercury glass in. NOTE: As authentic mercury glass ages, it loses some of its luster and tends to darken in spots. DIY'ers will need a little paint and small sponges to get the effect.

Tools and Materials--- 1 small tube of white gouache paint, 1 small tube of black gouache paint, 2 small natural sponges, Tissues


1. Place tea each white/black paint in separate bowls. Dilute with water droplets til consistency of heavy cream. 2. dab entire surface with sponge dipped in white gouache cream. 3. While still wet, use tissues to gently dab creating a mottled look. 4. W/ 2nd sponge, lightly and sparingly dab a few places with black gouache. 5. Use clean tissues to lighten and blur the black spots, creating the appearance of flaked mercury glass. 6. Let dry for at least 1 hour.


Sources---Gouache paint in zinc white (No. 00801-1032) and ivory black (No. 00801-2252), by Winsor Newton, from Blick Art Materials. Silver balls on wire, from B&J Florist Supply, 212-564-6086

Page 89 - The ultimate comfort food (pg 89 is where it is in my 4 recipe cookbook)
16 oz spaghetti
1 lb ground beef
54-56 oz spaghetti sauce (spag sauce usually come in cans of 26 or 28 ozs)
8 oz shredded cheese (I use sharp cheddar, but you will choose the cheese you prefer)
(optional garlic bread)

prep time ~ 1 hr

0. preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. brown ground beef
2. prepare spaghetti
3. heat spaghetti sauce
4. mix all three in a large bowl and pour in a casserole dish
5. bake for 15 mins, remove and top w cheese put back in oven for 15 mins
6. remove and if you’re smart you’ll bake some garlic bread. This gives the casserole a few minutes to cool off
7. be a pig

  1. Buy some whole dried peas
  2. They have fuller taste than split peas
  3. soak 24 hours
  4. no need to drain and replace the soak water
  5. cook and simmer for one hour as a thick soup
  6. cook it with some black pepper it really needs it. Fresh ground is best. 
  7. also include a little carrot, onion and celery
  8. add salt only at the end when the peas are soft
  9. you can always put a little pork product in there like diced ham or cooked bacon but...... you don't need much because these whole peas have a fuller taste than split peas
  10. This tastes better the next day
  11. This will warm you up in cold weather



Remember the old English nursery rhyme about eating peas? These are the peas used. They were dried and stored like beans--

Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold,
Pease porridge in the pot, nine days old;
Some like it hot, some like it cold,
Some like it in the pot, nine days old.[2][
