why not just the feminism thread. it touches on all the deep shitty undercurrents that gender issues have to deal with, especially considering to what ends and against what forces she loftily claims to have been acting. So yeah, I think that with the right kind of greek yogurt no straining is necessary and it works for pretty much anything you need; it's unambiguously superior to other types of yogurt, imo.

Took me a while to get into the greek yogurt thing. The texture just gets me. However, the Oikos has a key lime one that is AMAZING. Not too sweet and a whipped texture that is lovely.

Done.
I use greek yogurt when cooking, but generally don't eat raw yogurt. It's just something about the texture; no matter what fruit, nuts, granola, or what-have-you is mixed in it, it just doesn't sit well on my tongue. I'm the same way with sour cream.

I've never had greek yogurt, but if it is the same general texture as sour cream I don't think I'd have a problem. Can't get enough sour cream, goes well with everything from quesadilla to perogies.

On that note, perogies are delicious.

Oh my god I haven't had perogies in so long and that is SUCH A CRIME because they are truly fantastic.

Zoi is the best greek yogurt I have ever had. So good! I also like Brown Cow, but usually settle fir Nancy's honey seetened because it's the only mostly plain full fat one I can get in a big tub.

Or buy a tub of the premade and a spoon.

Premade stuff is never as good as homemade... but it'll do in a pinch.

If you ever find eating cheesecake filling out of a tub being in a pinch, though, you may have a problem.

DON'T JUDGE ME FOR MY ADDICTION TO CHEESECAKE

In all seriousness though, I don't know if they even have that stuff up here.

And homemade does always taste better; generally better for you as well.

If you can find a store (or in my case, a butcher/deli) that is owned by a Pole/Ukrainian, or specializes in Polish/Ukrainian cuisine, they tend to carry fresh homemade-style perogies that are fantastic.

Herbed potato and cheddar perogies, with fried onions and breadcrumbs on top, a side of sausage and some sour cream for dipping is delectable.

I'm pretty sure my almost certain diabetus will come from the stint of my life where i was regularly coming home drunk from work at the bar and buying one of those white chocolate raspberry cheesecakes from safeway and just destroying it.

For cheesecake, definitely homemade is better. I grew up on the boxed mixes, and I just remember it being gritty sweet. I liked it well enough with tart fruit, though.

But then I had homemade cheesecake, and omg. Omg.

Then I made a savory cheesecake and I really shouldn't have because I need to eat other things than cheesecake - but after eating a savory one, I had to ask, "Why bother?"

Someone just sent me this link, which cinais links to a number of incidents where women attending tech cons or doing geek community things are harrassed.

Intrigued by Sam's post, I read her blog post... and uh...

Quote:
"Yesterday the future of programming was on the line and I made myself heard."

"I saw a photo on main stage of a little girl who had been in the Young Coders workshop.

I realized I had to do something or she would never have the chance to learn and love programming because the ass clowns behind me would make it impossible for her to do so."


I'm debating in my mind which is more offensive, referring to someone as an "ass clown", or saying "I'd fork his repo".

Honestly this is so blown out of proportion it's just kind of amusing, in kind of the same way as watching a tornado pick up a house or a slow-motion train wreck.

Also, super hi-def pecan pie. I approve wholeheartedly.
