RE: Skywatchers: Get ready for the Great Conjunction

We had a clear night and a clear view. The star party finished at 8 because of the cold. Still had a great time.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Czarny has his act together it sounds like. Merry Christmas and enjoy your open fire while roasting chestnuts.

RE: Deep Fried Delights

I tested this method yesterday. Mine came out tender following Kent’s instructions. Cut like butter. Was the perfect pink-red. It’s important to watch the thermometer. The outer crust was tasty too. Grandkids fought over the crusts. I tested my theory about the meat flavoring the oil. Fried up some whole Yukon potatoes. Worked okay. I think I’ll still inject the turkey before frying. That and brining it 24 hours prior should do the trick.

RE: Hunting Island or Huntington Beach

We like them both. We'll try for HBSP in winter or cooler weather or HISP in summer for the breezes.

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

We discovered another gem a couple of years ago on the opposite end of SC state. Paris Mountain State Park just north of Greeneville, SC is a gooder. It's close enough to Greeneville to visit but it's also on a small mountain. Greeneville has a nice downtown park. We liked the easy trails for our tired legs.

RE: Oregon state campgrounds

Probably your best bet is to call them and ask. I know that some parks within the same state may have differences in reservations times. Oregon State Parks

Deep Fried Delights

Inspired by Kent Rollins' Pitchfork Deep Fried Prime Rib I think it would be nice for others to share your favorite deep fried delights. I'm going to do a practice run of the PDFPR soon. I'll then add it to my Christmas and Hogmanay menus. Any other deep fried divine delights?

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

Try staying in Huntington Beach State park. Some FHU the rest W&E, You can walk to the beach. They have a great nature lodge and have ranger talks in the lodge and outside. The home of the Huntington's can be toured for a small fee. Drunken Jacks in Murrell's Inlet is a good place to eat. Double ditto. Huntington Beach SP is our favorite SC coastal camping spot.

RE: What’s for Christmas dinner?

Since I'm deep frying a turkey I'm going to also do this Pitchfork Deep Fried Prime Rib Kent Rollins recipe. It'll flavor the oil up nice for doing up the bird. If it turns out like I think it will I'll do another one to bring to Hogmanay along with The Haggis. I wonder if leg of lamb will fry up nice. Tomorrow I'll go buy a pitch fork. I already own the cast iron pot and burner.

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

South Carolina has a lot of interesting and beautiful places to visit. Start with a search of "historic sites in SC". Georgia has a number of historic sites and state parks, the Savannah area is a good choice, especially Ft. McAllister State Park just south of Savannah. They often have re-enactments there. You can camp there and use it as a base for exploring the area. Wormsloe Historic Site with an oak avenue is on the edge of Savannah. St. Augustine, FL is another good historic area to visit. Tarpon Springs FL on the west coast has a Greek community there with a beautiful Greek Orthodox church to visit. Come back north on I-75 on your way home and check out the Aviation Museum at Robins AFB in Warner Robins GA. It's one of my faves. Free admission and free parking. They have an SR-71A Blackbird on display there that still holds the airspeed record. You can get information for planning your visit at this link. It's just south of Macon GA. Atlanta traffic and urban sprawl is bad. If you can try going around it as in far outside their beltway. There are a lot of interesting historic places to visit away from the urban mess. I recommend shooting on over to Alabama with its Talladega Speedway and then head home via Chattanooga TN. Plenty to see in Chattanooga and you can even visit Rock City for an old time kind of vacay with interesting things to do. Enjoy your trip.

RE: Sweet Potato Casserole with Sorghum

It's a world of many palates. Some would not dream of having a holiday without a candied yam or sweet potato casserole. To each their own. If we have an especially rich main course, our desserts tend to be lighter: lemon pies, Jello molds, or a light fruit pie.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Better safe than sorry. Glad Czarny is developing some advanced hunting skills. Then he can bring you all sorts of "presents" to show his appreciation. :w

RE: Sweet Potato Casserole with Sorghum

Mmm I like sweet taters anyway you can fix ‘em. Any time of year, any time of day. We do too. The sorghum is less sweet than maple syrup, brown sugar, corn syrup or honey. It’s has a slight herbal flavor to it. It’s my personal favorite of all the syrups.

Sweet Potato Casserole with Sorghum

We're adding this to all of our holiday menus. The sorghum adds that special touch. Sweet Potato Casserole with Sorghum Yield 10–12 servings Ingredients For the sweet potatoes: o 7 pounds sweet potatoes (about 12 potatoes) o 1/4 cup sorghum syrup o 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces while cold, then slightly softened at room temperature, plus 1 tablespoon for buttering the baking dish o 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt For the topping: o 1/2 cup sugar o 3/4 cup all-purpose flour o 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, diced o 2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped o 1 tablespoon kosher salt o 2/3 cup sorghum syrup Directions For the sweet potatoes: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Put the potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast until tender throughout, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. When cool enough to handle, peel away the skin and put the pulp in a large mixing bowl. Using a potato masher, blend the sweet potato pulp together with the syrup, butter, and salt until smooth. Lightly butter a large (9-by-12-by-2 1/2 inch) 3-quart baking dish and transfer the sweet potato mixture to a dish. Topping Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a medium mixing bowl, using your hands, mix together the sugar, flour, butter, peanuts, and salt until the butter chunks are pea size. (You are looking for a streusel-like topping here.) Evenly distribute over the top of the sweet potato mixture. Bake until the topping is crisp and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Transfer the baking dish to a cooling rack, and drizzle the casserole with the syrup, using a crosshatch pattern. Let the syrup sink into the topping for a few minutes before serving.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

We like to set up our model trains for Christmas too. The grands love them. We're having warm weather again. It looks like this year the weather is going to be schizophrenic. No surprise there for 2020. Our cats are enjoying the warm weather ventures outside too. The birds not so much enjoying the cats.

What’s for Christmas dinner?

What are you having? I’m deep frying a turkey. Son in law is slow roasting a pork belly. Green beans. Peas. Baked sweet potatoes. Stuffing. Pies, pies and more pies.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Glad Czarny didn’t get bit. I’m surprised a snake is out this late in the year. Maybe it was dug up out of its burrow during the house construction in your area. I suppose it must be a thing in your area the manicure thing that is. Around here guys use clippers or a Buck knife. One claims he uses a weed whacker but he’s a windup. :c

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Huh. Never heard of those kinds of contacts before. Sounds like something I'd better look into. I keep losing my trifocals. Sit Czarny down and explain to him the facts of "white" as in winter precip. He's old enough now to understand. :w Happy birthday and may you have many more bright cheerful celebrations in the future. Don't know what a mani/pedi is but I'm not sure I want to know. It doesn't sound like a guy thing.

RE: “Must Do” things while in Clearwater Beach, FL

Double ditto on the Aquarium. What do you like to do? What are YOUR interests? Museums? Architecture? Physical activities (like waterboarding, miniature golf)? TripAdvisor does list some varieties of activities too.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

We have a freeze coming. All the animals are stoking up on their food. We had a good TDay with family. Plenty of food but not much leftover here either. We have the haggis ordered for Burns’ Night. We’re celebrating on January 23. It’s easier to find a piper this year because some of the bigger gatherings were cancelled. More for us.
