A good quiche is hard to beat. I'm partial to tomatoes and goaty cheese. Caramelized onions are nice, too.

Quiche, a tangent of pie-talk. My personal favorite is spinach/bacon/muenster cheese. Savory A.F., delicious.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/21/18 10:15am melinda:

I had an authentic Cornish pasty once but the fact that it contained kidney ruined it for me, unfortunately. I don't have a taste for filtering organs.

ben abs: I've forgotten which county prefers what. But the controversy is: one places the sweet creamed butter on the scone first then the strawberry perserves on top; the other, the preserves first then the butter. Highly contentious. So ben abs, you're not neutral!

I was in St. Just, Cornwall at a café and had my 1rst cream tea. The waiter and I laughed about the controversy. She said, "You're American, you can cut it in half and put all the stuff in the middle and make a sandwich; that would be very American." hee!

Cultured butter or sweet cream butter?

I know folks who didn't particularly care for the Dead but would go to their shows. I think it was really just background music to them. They went for the atmosphere and to meet old friends.

To some degree, ANY personal opinion about the music is kind of uninteresting: I love this! This is awesome! This is boring! I hate this group! Who really cares? On the other hand, I do this all the time, and I really am thrilled to hear Steve Lacy being played. So, if we permit gushing positive opinions, I think negative views should be accepted with grace. IMHO.

I saw the Dead summer of '95 my freshman year, just out of curiosity, as I wasn't into their music at the time. I had a blast, and about four years later I slowly got into their music (starting from the early period).

Gregory, I find that to be a false equivalency. "I like this" is often an expression of appreciation for the job the host is doing. "I don't like this" obtusely avoids fact that listening isn't compulsory.

  Wed. 11/21/18 11:05am Listener Gregory:

@Uncle, I see your point. But comments are not just to the host. Often they are a way to get a conversation started. For the record, I enjoy the variety played on WFMU, and I don't expect to like everything that's played. If I say I don't like something (which I seldom do), it's not intended as a complaint. That Steve Lacy was awesome, by the way!

What sorts of conversations have you seen started by expressing your dislike for something, Gregory? Are you challenging other people to defend it? If you want to know what other people appreciate about something, a question might serve better than a condemnation.

Howdy everyone! I missed the pasty discussion. Pasty's are dee-licious!. I could be mistaken but I believe the the Michgan UP pastries are primarily Welsh with some Finnish pasty stylings in the mix. I also learned some time back while visiting Amsterdam that there is a Surinamese pasty. Where's Cecile when we need her?

Similar to pasties, a local bar used to serve Zapatas, which had a filling similar to a burrito. Though the crust was more like a calzone, I guess. Satisfying.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/21/18 11:46am northguineahills:

@βrian: Trader Joe's veggie chorizo is better then the real thing. otherwise, I usually take firm tofu, marinate it for a few days, and then dry fry it, At that point, it isn't a meat equivalent, but the Japanese version. But, if you add veggie chicken broth to it works well (dry fried tofu can get rather tough enough).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/21/18 11:47am Uncle Michael:

maybe competition isn't what it is. We had owls out the wazoo for years...then we had hawks, but no owls. Owls are crepuscular hunters and hawks are diurnal. I'm not sure how much their prey really overlaps. Or how willing they are to nest or roost near each other.
