    My professor (who is from England) began class by complaining that the American newspapers don't advertise pancake recipes on Shrove Day (or whatever it's called over in the UK).

    Anyone have any insight into what this beautiful Shrove day is?

    They call it Mardi Gras in New Orleans...the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent.

    Paczkis are served locally on this Shrove Day, especially in Hamtramck.

    Bad in what sense? Aesthetically? From a health perspective?

    I personally find naturally curvy women attractive, but when we are talking about mounds of fatty flesh all over the place which are the product of a life lived in the utmost hedonistic debauchery of culinary perversion, then I don't.

    There is virtue in moderation. Eating should be pleasurable, but also primarily satisfy the purpose of providing sufficient and healthy nourishment without excess (as any excess is unhealthy).

    Are you familiar with the noble art of face sitting, dear sir? Such endeavours pursued with one of these dames should be undoubtedly qualified as an Extreme Sport. :lol:

    But preference maximization is all-important! We must consume until the marginal utility has diminished to such an extent, consumption is unfavorable! ;)

    Interesting concept, Manus Domini! Are you an economist? It sounds like economical theory, anyway. :)

    My view is that frugal consumption is a virtue. People yack all the time about greenhouse gasses, global warming, scarcity of natural resources, etc, but many times they are such hypocrites!

    Take Michael Moore, for example. That fat s.o.b.'s average breakfast's carbon footprint is probably higher than that of your average 100 mile trip in a regular SUV.

    What we eat, and how much of it we eat, has an immense effect on the environment. Not to mention on the retinas of unsuspecting viewers. :)

    Hey MichaelNadal, can you only get that mix in Costco? You people are making me seriously consider getting some of it. Do they have buttermilk? I like me some buttermilk pancakes with sweet butter, natural maple syrup, and some frankenberries / blackberries. :)

    Mouthing off at over weight people?

    He pays for his own fat so it's for him to decide his own preferences, no?

    Remember, personal responsibility is everything so if he's happy and he can afford it ...

    Not overweight people. Simply people who eat 10000 calories a day and then preach to the rest of us mortals about social responsibility. Liberals can be some of the worst hypocrites ever.

    I'll stop driving my car so much when Michael Moore stops eating 2 chickens and half a dozen pork chops for breakfast. LOL

    So when did Michael Moore prohibit people, including himself, from vices/preferences?

    You can't even answer the simplest of questions without posing another question.

    Hypocrisy, no?

    I think the environment will survive Moore's eating habits.

    Thanks for telling me about such forms of fine dining just after i have had breakfast. : )

    However, i was just wondering whether some of those delicate damsels may actually be having some thyroid or other medical problems.... I was once stalked by a generously proportioned maiden who told me that she hardly ate, and had some medical condition.

    Do you honestly not think Michael Moore is against consumerism, for the reduction of greenhouse gasses, etc? Yet, the fat ole chap eats as much as an average family of 4.

    Are you familiar with the term "carbon footprint"? Everything you do (including things you eat) has a cost attached to it in terms of environmental impact. For example, when you eat a pork chop, you are impacting the environment in these ways at least:
    - The truck used to transport the seed for the feed.
    - Farm machinery to harvest the feed.
    - Industrial machinery to process the feed.
    - Waste in the farm, electricity to keep the hogs warm, etc.
    - Transporting the hogs.
    - Processing the hogs in an industrial facility.
    - Again, transporting the chops to the distribution center.
    - Etc.

    So yeah, if you eat like a pig, you indeed are causing probably as much harm to the environment as if you drive a large SUV.

    Recently I asked a receipt to a clerk, and she told me that they tried to avoid hard copy receipts as much as possible to prevent waste and save the environment. Now, this lady was probably 5'5'' and was around 200 lbs. Can you imagine what things I had to restrain myself from saying?

    HAHAHAHA. Brilliant, Herr Sentinel! ROFL X 10.524E19

    Well, you are right that some people have thyroid problems, but on the other hand, those people normally avoid frequenting iHop and such establishments. ;)

    Where's ksbh, anyway?

    I pretty much buy their buttermilk one exclusively. It's at every grocery store where they other pancake mixed and syrup are here. Wal Marts have them too. You gotta grab a box :D

    Their muffin mix is great too, better than any other BB muffin mix I've tried.

    Hmmm. Thank you, MN. My mouth is watering now.

    Of course, I will need to buy all the other paraphernalia (syrup, butter, etc).

    Since we are talking about this, the best butter I have found is an Irish butter called Kerrygold. I like the unsalted kind. It is delicious, but you don't find it too easily. Irish cows eat fresh grass, and that makes the butter extra tasty.

    Oh that old coot, ksbh ! Haha, probably waiting for Ralph to win RG and then he'll come rubbing it into our faces. He was quite a riot except that his posts were just the same "Federer has a big nose on which you can park a yacht, beached whale, two mating walruses and then some" repeated over and over. lol.

    I really don't know much about the culinary habits of people with thyroid problems being an introvert and all that, and living 5000 miles away from the nearest IHOP, i really can't challenge your statement. IN any case your statement is anecdotal, and that does not constitute proof, so there, haha.

    HAHAHAHA. Do two mating walruses take more room than two walruses just minding their own business? ;)

    I think what I meant is that an iHop is definitely not the place to be if you have a thyroid problem. If you were currently in the US you would know what I mean. As Haley Joel Osment once said, I see fat people. ;)

    You'll have to ask ksbh, he keeps tabs on the ever-expanding surface area of Fed's nose and other appendages. He prefers to use similes so that we don't get confused between the metric and fps system.

    Breaking news from Wimbledon! Simona Halep loves pancakes! When asked her fantasy breakfast if she had the day off, she names pancakes first (followed by ham and cheese and then a chocolate croissant). Later in the clip she says she makes herself pancakes for breakfast pretty much every day :D

    Reminds me of Bartoli's breakfasts which had ice-cream shakes before and after, iirc. Her one breakfast could have kept me going for a week.

    How about pancakes doused with eggplants. Do you have reservations about aubergine ?

    In this case yes. I think they would be too slimey. I have enjoyed savory crepes at the crepe place in Santa Cruz, but the pancakes I will be dreaming of as I drift off to sleep now will have lots of butter and pure maple syrup. Maybe some blueberries, too, since I'm dreaming...or strawberries in honor of Wimbledon.

    Michael Moore eats too much and Al Gore uses too much electricity and jet fuel, but they have made a modest contribution to the examination of these issues regardless of their personal failings.

    On the other hand, if you are into hero worshipping I can see why you may be deluded but who really cares as the issues need to be examined outside the personalities the media fastens on.
