Dead meat: The New York Times' terrible take on vegetarianism in Kansas City

I've been living in Lawrence since my 15-year-old daughter was a newborn, and she's been a vegetarian her entire life. There's no problem finding veggie options here or in Kansas City. Smaller towns, which have limited restaurant options anyway, can be difficult, but that's true in most states. Thanks for the nice correction!

Classed-Up White Trash Favorites

My mom used to give me hot jello when I was sick. The red-flavored jello. I loved it then but can't picture myself making it now. In fact, my mother was horrified when she found out I'd never made jello (cold) for my kid and she sent some home with me.

Eating Seasonally

well said. I bought arugula for the first time ever at the farmer's market 2 weeks ago. People standing around the booth gave me ideas for how to use it. delicious

Smoke Will Get In Your Eyes.

We just got a grilling basket (for free), and now I would call it a thing we *need*. Much better than picking the sweet potato fries off the charcoal.

Because I Can.

I'm not comfortable with messing with a perfect recipe. Nutella rules. Spread of the goddesses. I don't believe you can reproduce it (but I'm happy to try your attempts).

Wherein I Change My Name To Patty

I craved cheeseburgers while I was pregnant, too. In fact, the day I found out I was pregnant, I'd staked out a favorite drive-thru windo, waiting for the clock to turn over to the lunch menu so I could have a cheeseburger for breakfast. I'll have to try out this new place, since you recommend it and you know your food stuffs.

Behold: The Clutterbug, Lover of Uni-Taskers

I got my first bread knife for Xmas this year. Big improvement.

I bought a pizza slicer this weekend. Works much better than a knife.

Also, the ice cream scooper is a good single-tasker.

And I, too, love the apple slicer.

The bread-making machine is lame. I tried one once and the loaf came out solid as a rock.

I have a garlic press, but I just use a knife instead.

Eating For Two, Table For One

when I was pregnant, I ate catalope (just cut it open and ate it like it was a bowl of fruit) with a side of smoked cheese on crackers. It took 1 minute to prepare, and was delicious for every meal. No, really.

Mix and Stir

I bought my mixer at an antique store for $25 (plus $10 at Cottins for stuff to rewire it). It's super cool looking and does everything I ever wanted it to do (both times that I used it...). So, if you don't get the mixer for Vday, maybe you could go this other route until TBI gets his head on straight. ;-)

Inside the Outhouse

The first time I went to the Outhouse was to see SNFU in 1986. It was my first trip to Lawrence, too. I have many fond memories of the Outhouse...but I've probably forgotten more trips there than I'm able to actually remember.

Government Issue came into Pennylane Records one afternoon (1987?). Their gig in K.C. or some place had been canceled. John Henderson organized a show for them at the Outhouse for the same night. All publicity was word of mouth that day. I remember another time at a GWAR show when Kim Czarnopys was freaking out because she thought they'd splattered real blood all over her shirt when they were swinging around the giant tampon. Ahhh, the good ol' days -- the stories I probably won't tell my daughter any time soon.
