    The food thread

    Here is where we can discuss food, restaurants and recipes. "Discuss" means other people besides me have to participate. Look what came out just in time for us to have with our Thanksgiving dinner:

    Another bit of Americana is disappearing. Where is the outcry from the historical preservationists?

    Eat these at your own risk: In December 2017, spicy "Sweet Heat" Skittles will go on sale nationwide. The flavors are lemon spark, flamin' orange, blazin' mango, sizzlin' strawberry and fiery watermelon. Starburst, Jolly Rancher and several other companies also make spicy candy. Who suddenly decided that candy should be spicy? It shouldn't.

    Does anyone have a good recipe for egg nog? I like it but the stores only sell it around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Here is a five-star recipe from Taste Of Home magazine:

    If you have a large freezer, you can buy several cartons of egg nog in December and freeze them, then just let a carton thaw whenever you're in the mood for egg nog.

    I do. Borden's egg nog now comes in wobbly plastic pouches. Beverages should be in cans, bottles and cartons, not plastic pouches and dinky cardboard boxes.

    The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that we wasteful Americans will throw out almost 200 million pounds of turkey this week. Yikes! From NPR's All Things Considered, here are some ways to use -- and not waste -- Thanksgiving leftovers:

    Russia may label McDonald's a 'foreign agent' damaging people's health
    Newsweek, Nov 25 2017 1:51 PM

    A Russian politician has proposed labeling American fast food chains such as McDonald's and KFC as foreign agents, following recently passed legislation which provides the same classification for international news outlets. Boris Chernyshov, a 26-year-old Moscow lawmaker in the federal Russian Assembly, described advertisements made by American restaurants for Russian consumers as manipulative and nontransparent about their longterm health effects.

    The State Duma deputy added that chains such as McDonald’s, which has 430 locations across Russia, are contributing to the decline of the nation's cuisine. He said, "The food sold by American fast food restaurants, according to some studies, negatively affects the body and human health. In advertising, a positive image of consumption of these products is presented."

    The pumpkin spice craze seems to be on its way out. Now the food craze is hot and spicy. What will be next? Maybe hot and spicy pumpkin?
