A) Hot Turkey Sandwich
B) Turkey & Noodles
C) pass the Bromo, Please
A) On San Francisco sourdough, with melted Gouda cheese.
The best sourdough bread in the world is made in San Francisco, and the reason is because of the cool, fogy weather. It seems to have an impact on the yeast, which is a fungus, and the bacteria that occurs naturally, giving the city’s sourdough its distinctive flavor.
@Dawg….That would be your Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis bacteria for sourdough. No doubt the best sourdough in the world!
@ Dawg – I once heard a story which I have no reason to doubt.
Once upon a time there was a baker in San Francisco. He baked the best bread in the city (as acknowledged by all) and he worked in the front of his bakery, rather than the back.
He would stand at his table in the front window of the bakery and would prepare and knead the dough, and he would be shirtless in the sweltering hot bakery. During the kneading process, he would rub the lumps of dough on his bare chest, stomach and arms, soaking up the sweat and incorporating it into the dough, before setting each piece into the rack for baking.
Eventually, health regulations came into existence and his bread-making method was prohibited. Everybody said that the bread was never as good after that.
Has anyone else heard this story?
@ AM….. No, never heard that story before and I’m sorry I read it here …. gross!
That story reminds me of the joke about the run down diner where a guy walks in, sits down at the counter and see’s a fat lady in a sleeveless shirt doing the cooking.
Guy looks at the chalkboard menu and orders “I’ll have a hot dog & a hamburger” he says
So the Lady grabs a hamburger patty out of the freezer and slaps it up into her armpit.
Guy says “What the hell are you doing?”
The lady barks back “I’m defrosting the hamburger!”
So the guy say’s… “In that case, forget the hotdog!”
Ha ha – good one, Dr. J!
Thanks…. we’re even now!
Happy weekend, all! Both A) and B). Toad could live on turkey leftovers.
A but cold turkey is good too.
Of your list, I’ll choose A).
But what I’m really looking forward to is turkey pot pie!
Oh yes – now that does sound good!
I choose A), and congrats on being first.
thanks cyn… was quite by happenstance, being claycord threw a curve ball and posted whatever early…
I gave up the first game a bit ago, was too stressful.
Hope you got to enjoy a “A”………..
Turkey Sandwich, however I make an open faced Danish version. Dark rye bread, then mayonnaise, creamed horseradish, then sliced turkey, then a thin spread of mayonnaise and horseradish, topped with cranberry sauce, it is not a hot sandwish it cold. The true Danish version would have pickled beets instead of cranberry sauce, but since I always have left over cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving it makes sense to use it, and it taste just as good as beets, although I love pickled beets. My dad grew beets and my mother would pickle them herself. Pickles beets is a staple of many Danish dishes, not only sandwiches, but also with a hot meal.
of course I’m goin with “C”….
The bird just ain’t my thing…. Sent most of it home with everyone, so they could enjoy the leftovers.
Crossing my fingers for BEEF at christmas…
Many years ago, my son made the case that one turkey dinner was enough for the holiday season. Since then, Christmas dinner has always been prime rib.
your son is very wise….
One year I did several racks of backs for thanksgiving and a small turkey… Nary a bone left, but there was some turkey left over. which tells me a lot of people would rather pass on the bird, but won’t admit it.
Christmas is usually beef as well…. sometimes a pork butt…. I do smoke the prime rib sometimes….. I’d rather a brisket.
Just typing this making my mouth water……….
Wave First !
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving
How long does it take the city of Concord to mark the traffic lines on the street at Port Chicago and Panoramic?It is very confusing when coming into the intersection from the freeway off into Concord.Rain isn’t an excuse.Maybe they are waiting for an accident.Let’s get it done oh great ones.
I drove out of CVS parking lot in Clayton on Center St. & Clayton Road right in front of the Clayton Fire Station and there are three lanes without any traffic line markings, they are all worn off.
I got the outside lights up before the rain got here. The tree waits until tomorrow.
“Died Suddenly ” the anti-vax documentary is gonna get big. Saw it on rumble.
Hey Big Sis…hope you all had a great time yesterday. Lets see how many thumbs down we can get for simply being friends. Laughing so hard I can hardly stand it. Or is that LSHICHSI…Got a brief visit from the grand babies today…Wonderful! Total pick me up for me.
HUMmmmm So, I’m confused here…….. Beings Laughter is the best medicine…. Should I thumbs down????? but, I really wanna thumbs up….
It must be past my bedtime…….
Thumbs -Up, if you like being Friends on Claycord. 🙂
LOL S…don’t be confused. It’s just poking fun. I find it hilarious that some hide behind the thumbs. I’m a stand up guy. If I have something to say I say it. In moderation of course. And I’m going with the hot turkey with avocado.
Hope everyone is fat and happy after the Holiday
and we can even click a thumb on our own posts too….
I click mine every time I go by. You can buy your own blue verification marks on Twitter now, too. If the iPhone, the iMac, the iWatch and the YOUTube didn’t do it for you, you can now actually like your own stuff in several formats!.
Hey Lil Bro ~
It was crazy with the 6 little ones running around yesterday. Finally getting a few of my Aunt’s Great-Grandkids comfortable with me holding them or sharing toys. So glad you got a visit from the grandbaby! Missy & Son will be home soon, and I’ll rest easy knowing they are back safe from a long trip.
Thumbs-Up to You! 🙂
Awesome girl…any plans on Grand babies
yet from Colorado? Gonna be so much fun!!!
We are already 4 thumbs down…LOL I find that very funny for some reason.
Peace and loves
No Grand- Babies ever.
They’re getting too old to go down that road.
More Grand-Critters in the future for sure.
5 thumbs down.
Well, there are few, fun & kind-hearted people here on Claycord.
Peace & Love 🙂
Oh my gosh Roz…Saturday and you are up a 4 in the morning. Wish I had your energy. They should be home this evening. Long drive.
@ REDRAZOR ~
Are you willing to put your phone number on Claycord?
I think not.
Don’t you guys have a telephone?!? 😂
My number is 1-800-BEK-IND2
@REDRAZOR….Jenny has it, call 867-5309…
I don’t understand some of the thumbs down. I got thums down for not liking pumpkin pie, or could be because in the same sentence I said I didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Denmark. Which is common sense since Thanksgiving is an American tradition. I do celebrate here and love it, and have celebrated it ever since I came here.
The back and forth between Roz and Simonpure is sweet, why would someone give it thumbs down?
@ Hanne ~ It could be that some people believe that is what e-mail & Facebook are for so they don’t want to read personal correspondence in “Whatever”. I don’t feel that way…. in fact, I believe the “Whatever” column never gets enough postings…. “Whatever” means whatever, right ?
And speaking of “Thumbs Down” who could give my hilarious joke (above) a thumbs down?
I’ve been repeating that joke since 1985 when I first heard it, and it never failed to produce chuckles, guffaws and an occasional hysterical scream… any person who did not find it at the very least “amusing” would have to be devoid of any sense of humor at all.
Well said, Doctor.
Dr., i see your point, but you seem to forget—- there is no cryong in baseball. A forbidden topic might be: ” how many timrs have tou been censored by claycord? ” Me, more then once. But im sure others,have me beat! 😁
I do have a sense of humor, your joke was ok, but l have heard better, tried to post one, but didn’t pass muster with Claycord
@ Hanne… Naughty Girl! ~ I have lots of better jokes, but they would not pass the Claycord decency standards either.
Heads-up Sports at Treat and Oak Grove is closing (happy retirement Jerry!), cool stuff on sale if you are looking for gifts for sports fans, or just something for yourself. Grab something at the See’s Candy pop up store a few doors down while you’re there too.
Have spent many dollars in that sports shop over the years, but not since sports teams all went woke. I’m more interested in the pop-up See’s…….I can’t seem to find it and would appreciate it if you’d tell me where it is.
Hi Cyn- See’s is a couple doors down from Heads Up in the same shopping plaza (don’t know the name of the plaza, it’s the one with Trader Joe’s), they went in where the old Verizon store was next to the pharmacy
Thank you for the information…..that’s terrific. I’m going there tomorrow. 🙂
Book report: Alaska, James A Michener, 1988. When Michener writes he starts almost at the beginning of the world. In this case the building up of Alaska, then the land bridge that brought people over from the Asian continent. A history of the animals and fish, how they were hunted on land and seas. Eventually he gets to the whalers and other sea captains that start the invasion and take of the land and people. The story ends in the 1990s. Well over a 1000 packed paperback pages and what a ride this book is. If you like historical type fiction, long versions, this one is for you.
The Amazon show, The English, with Emily Blunt is getting quite good (I’m on ep. 4) and it reminds me of a James Michener novel that I read but can’t seem to remember the title to. The show is set in the late 1800s in America. Anyone know what novel that might be?
@JDOG – Michener’s “state” novels are usually the name of the state, plus an exclamation mark, such as “Rhode Island!”. Just kidding – I don’t think he wrote one about Rhode Island, but you get the idea.
I did a brief search and found the Michener novel. It was Centennial.
my Father was a Michener fan. I’ve a box of Dad’s old books, I call it Box-O-Books…….
I know there are a couple of Michener books in there….. Time to dig one out……..
I just finished this one.
Couldn’t get a comment through for the life of me for years, there in the beginning. Seemed my “filters” were “damaged,” or something. But, it blows me away, however, when somebody down votes that someone else doesn’t like pumpkin pie. Somebody down voted my “Happy Thanksgiving” greeting for example! What does that accomplish anyway? Do they think it will change your mind? Like a subtle form of pressure to make you maybe think differently. Or, a suggestion that maybe you’re wrong? Or, that it’s un-American not to like pumpkin pie? It seems like It’s really wasted energy to down vote something that’s a personnel preference or an arbitrary greeting because it doesn’t influence the author one way or the other. It’s just something that “is.” Still, someone expended the energy to tap the “Thumbs Down” icon to express their opinion and then wait for the number to register on the page. Then, they must have experienced some sense of satisfaction for having expressed a contrary opinion. But, still, it seems like such a waste of time and energy in these examples. And, speaking of jokes … That one was gross! That’s the kind if thing I got censored for. Here’s one not quite so questionable. Three guys walk into a diner and sit down. A harried waitress comes to take their order. They each order a glass of milk with their lunch, but the last guy says he wants his milk in a clean glass. In a little while the waitress comes back with the lunch order and three glasses of milk and says, “Which one of you wanted the clean glass?”
I swear I proofread that repeatedly!
And how about Cowellian getting a “Thumbs Down” for putting up outside lights before the rain hit? It’s ridiculous to “down” that post unless, of course, you enjoy putting up lights in the rain. Some people are just miserable and probably envious of other people’s lives, and feel like they have to try and ruin that somehow (as if). So I suggest we all just keep pulling our best Andy Taylor tricks on that old curmudgeon, Ben Weaver.
Hey, at least I got a reaction, huh?
Cyn, I give that a thunbs up!
@Cyn ~ I never could see things Andy’s way ….. I’ll stick with the Ernest T. Bass approach.
That would work too.
@DR. JELLYFINGER….Howard Morris… interesting guy…..
GITTYUP ~ Thanks for your Post.
Geez Gittyup….. You didn’t steal that one from Redd Foxx….that’s for sure.
Ever hear the joke Redd told about the old guy that orders ham & eggs for breakfast at the same diner, from the same waitress every morning?
He looks at the same chalkboard menu every morning for 5 minutes then orders ham & eggs from the same waitress…. everyday.
So one morning the waitress decides to scratch ham & eggs off the menu just to see what the old guy will do.
When the old guy walks in & sits down the the waitress walks up and says “I’m sorry sir, but I just scratched what you like” and the old guy is quiet for a moment, then he says “that’s alright, just go wash your hands then bring me my ham & eggs”.
@ Dr. Jellyfinger, No, I hadn’t heard that one and I never knew of Redd Foxx to be that risque, if you know what I mean! Definitely tops the other one you posted. I stole the one I posted from AARP magazine. 😇
LoL…. Redd said “If the Pilgrims shot bobcats instead of turkeys, we’d all be eating p#### on Thanksgiving!” Those are the two “cleanest” Redd Foxx jokes I can repeat!
OK, I’ve had 4 or 5 hot open-faced turkey sandwichs. Time for the rest of the turkey to go in the freezer for later on….maybe just one more before I freeze the rest….hmmmm
Sort of a follow-up to S’s unofficial Claycord weekly poll.
D) None of the above, gag me with a spoon.
I think those that like a or b or c would need an E) all of above
I’d go B…. fried with a bit of cajun seasoning…..
@S…..I have chicken livers soaking in buttermilk for dinner tonight.
Chicken livers in buttermilk? NOW you can gag me with a spoon.
MMMmmm soak em in buttermilk for an hour or so… put a little salt and pepper in some finely ground corn meal, coat well… fry them in bacon fat….
@CYN….So you won’t trade me some of that $102 of See’s for some fried chicken livers?
Liver although I don’t remember having turkey liver, turkey was not a staple of Danish food, but duck liver, chicken livers, we fry it in butter, and onions, and serve it with gravy and mashed potatoes.
@HANNE JEPPESEN….I had a friend back in the late 70s that got me to try goose liver paté. I told her it looked like canned cat food but tasted like Heaven, been hooked ever since….and she wasn’t just a platonic friend.
@S….”B”, no doubt. Necks and gizzards would never cross these lips.
Liver pate is also popular in Denmark, we eat on buttered dark rye bread (similar to pumpernickel, but taste a little different) and top it with dill pickles, pickled beets, or cold left over sweet and sour cabbage left over from dinner. The fried livers is a dinner dish.
European cooking from the past, and probably in some areas today had some weird dishes, but the idea was nothing should go to waste. I have eaten blood sausage and bloodpudding, I like from I was small and didn’t really make a connection to what is was until I got older, but then I had already developed a taste for it, blood sausage gets fried in butter and served with apple sause. Some other European farm dishes, pickled pigs feet, tripe, I have a friend from Czech Republic he loves tripe, I have never tried it nor will I. My parents made a cabbage dish with pigs feet, I would eat the cabbage, but stayed clear of the feet. We also ate gizzards.
No, I wouldn’t trade my candy for chicken livers; however, goose liver pate is another story.
Just got back from the See’s pop-up you mentioned. Thanks again for that. (Or perhaps I shouldn’t thank you, as I spent $102.00). Anyway, I told the saleslady how you mentioned her pop-up on Claycord.com, and now you also get a big thank you from Gina at See’s. 🙂
Just read a news blurb that: “An AI named Cicero can beat humans in Diplomacy, a complex alliance-building game….” I wonder what Edi Birsan thinks of that. It’s in an opinion column today from Univ. New South Wales, Sydney. I used to occasionally follow Edi’s adventures with the game. Time is fleeting.
Have you noticed when having outpatient surgery, by the time you get home there is an email waiting for you requesting you complete a survey regarding your experience?
Perhaps they want to get you while you are still groggy………….
It’s officially “Throw Away Your Leftovers Day”
3 days is usually my cut off date or into the freezer…
Well…… the cranberry sauce is probably still OK, but rules are rules… out it goes.
if the cranberry sauce starts to ferment, lets make wine.
shake shack gonna open in walnut creek.
any claycord types ever been to one?
I thought Shake Shack was a brothel
