Jim's We(b Log)

This blog is what I have to do for my class. I figure if I'm going to do it, why not go all out? If you have a question or some such, you could email me at jimsweblog@gmail.com.

Jim,

I hate to point this out, but maybe your uncle is gay.

I was playing a game of scrabble with my stepdad last sunday and I used the word "nog". He said "I don't think that's a word - use it in a sentence." So I said "Boy, I sure could use some nog right 'bout now." He still wasn't buying it so I looked it up in Websters and it said "Nog - A beverage made with whipped eggs."

I made an ass out of my stepdad!

If, like me, you would prefer not to drink raw eggs in any drink- I highly recommend Silk Nog. I would drink it all year round, but they only make it during the holiday season.

Also, I don't say holiday season because I am opposed to saying Christmas. It is just that I believe that you can buy the nog from Thanksgiving through New Years. I think people should be free to say Christmas, X-mas, Kwaanza, or anything they want. Just because I am half-German doesn't make me a fascist.

I don't really get the last two comments. Especially the Jewish one. I am surprised at you, Mimi.

Be glad that I didn't wish you a Happy Kwaanza.

Now that would be a real insult.

I've been absent lately so I've missed all of this banter.

Mimi, I think you are making that up about buttermilk having bubbles in Bulgaria since they don't even have buttermilk in Bulgaria. Nice try though!

Buck, nice job at scrabble! One time I spelled the word "scrotum" in scrabble and it was hilarious.

Uber, I am also 1/4 German! A small world. I can also vouch for Silk Nog. It has a better flavor than regular nog.

i was so worked up last night about somebody using my name that i didn't see that jim weed, as usual, was kidding :) but yes, in bulgaria we make the best yoghurt in the world (preposterous!) and sometimes dillute it 1 to 1 with water - bingo. it's the lassi concept, but tastes better. tourists and missionaries love it too. if you've had too much to drink the night before, you'd prefer the "buttermilk" that's 2-3 days old because its s l i g h t l y fermented and there are tiny bubbles. really cools you off you know...

Wow! There is a lot of action going on here in the comment section.

Buck, you're halarious! I'm glad you have a name.

By the way, "The Real Coal" was not me. I have only ever posted as Coal, and once as Jim's parents.

This is enough to make my head spin! Jim, how can you keep up with who everyone is on this blog? It is like everyone has some alter-identity or personality or whatever. I don't know who I can trust anymore.

Also, I am going to try the bulgarian carbonated yogurt recipe tonight at my dinner party. It sounds like it will go well with the pierogis. Jim, if you ever find your recipe book, I'd be interested in more ethnic recipes.

Uber, I don't know who any of these commenteers are, except like one or two of them. I can't keep up!

Recipe-wise, I know some good ethnic recipies. I will share them some time. I use to make pierogies in the olden days but the taste lost it's savor. I also used to make a cabbage cake but thankfully not anymore.

Mimi, what your talking about is called smetana. It's not really a yoghurt like you say it is, because in America we don't even have that stuff!

no, smetana is cream. or sour cream. whatever. all the slavic dairy variations can get a bit over my head. in any case borsht is better without it.
