I love popcorn!! Growing up we had popcorn at least once a week, usually on Sunday night as we watched Disney.  Back then we rarely topped our popcorn with butter.  That's because we popped it in bacon grease (bacon grease was the oil of choice for just about everything back then) so it didn't need the added flavor.  We also used to make caramel corn (or Cracker Jack as my grandfather called it) on a regular basis.   Nowadays, we usually make Kettle Corn instead of...
I guess that I'm just the opposite.  I wish they would have more of that kind of show (with good hosts!).  I am so over shows like "Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives" "Unwrapped" and all the reality cooking shows (Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen, America's Worst Cook).  Bring back shows with quality hosts, cooking quality food i. e. The Frugal Gourmet, and even Good Eats.   There are a few of the "compliation" shows that I do like such as "Eat the Street" and a few others but most of...
Without really knowing what you are looking to accomplish it is rather hard to point in the right direction. Ground beef can be a blank canvas and you can go so many ways with it.   In regards to seasoning packets.  While I am not opposed to seasoning blends, those packets are not the best.  Rather, look to spice shops that sell their own blends. It will be a fresher product and higher quality with a lot less salt and more spices and herbs.  If you don't have a good...
Campbell's Tomato Soup with popcorn tossed in.  It was one of my favorite wintertime lunches as a kid.
Nothing like reviving a 2 1/2 year old thread to make a completely inane comment.
I will check with the  site administrator, but I hesitate to "shut down" this thread as it doesn't really violate any of the sites guidelines, nor has the conversation taken a really nasty turn.  Minus a few cheap shots this conversation has remained relatively civil.  I would hate to start a precedent of shutting down threads that have become annoying.  A better solution is just to ignore any further posts and let this thread die a natural death, IMHO.   As to the...
Sorry, but your links do not support your claim when it comes to hard liquor.  Yes, it supports the claim that both wine and beer will spoil and no one here discounts that fact.  But the fact is they items are less than 15% alcohol and thus do not contain the levels of alcohol to prevent spoilage.  It will slow it down but eventually the microbes responsible for turning it to vinegar will begin to colonize those beverages and turn them into vinegar.   But the links you...
In regards to wine spoiling, this is what The Wine Spectator has to say:   "By “spoil,” I’m guessing you mean “oxidize”—that is, as an open bottle interacts with the air, it will eventually fade, flatten out and begin to take on nutty, bruised-apple notes. The wine isn’t spoiled in exactly the same way food can become spoiled, but it can still be unpleasant to drink."   In regards to old, oxidized wine making you sick, again The Wine Spectator has this to...
 I like to mash pasticchio all together!
