i didnt know this subject was going to be so heated, that being said...

if you think you are better than a veggie, because you eat meat, thats a perposterous way of thinking. your diet does not make you who you are. you make yuor diet.

if you are a veggie and think you are a better person than an omnivore, you are more arrogant than you know.

yes its true that our ancestors hunted animals for food and all that. but the neolithic revolution made it possible for civilizations to come about. so saying meat is the saving grace of humanity is a very generalized statement.

shut up. eat your food on your plate. you dont prove anything to anyone when you insult people in a debate. thats how people on jerry springer operate.

and if you want to contribute to this subject, pair some meat-free dishes with wines.
I just had a duck foie gras burger. I didn't have goose, so I had to work with what I have handy. I live on a golf course, so a couple months ago i caught one of the little suckers, force fed it. i didn't have a gavage, so I went down to home depot and bought a 1 1/2" platic tube, that seemed to work well. I grew up in a rural area in the midwest, so I am confused about the title of this post, but not on a farm, so I wasn't certain what to feed it... I settled on my daughter's rice cereal, since she is 9 months old nearly 30" and 25+ lbs, eating me out of house and home... I thought she is growing like a weed, this must do the trick. Low and behold the best duck fois gras burger EVER.

When I was 18 and in college if I wasn’t in class or studying, I was drinking beer illegally or trying to get laid. I’m not buying ohtheHumanity’s story!!


And by the looks of things, you're still getting high between the O's. It's a little implausible, yes, but I believe ohtheHumanity's story. I had a roommate in college very similar to him/her. No my roomie Gary didn't get laid much, needless to say.

First of all, don't talk about my daughter. You want to respond to me about my post, which was made in jest, that is fine.

Secondly, I grew up in the Midwest, but now I live in La Costa, California, so I no longer speak that Indiana slang...

You'll have to excuse me, my trigger finger is pretty twitchy these days, I'm sure you understand.

But, you're the one ripping your daughter's rice cereal, not me.

OK, I'll play. We had this pasta last night, and while I didn't expect the pairing to work, it was really good with a 2004 Quinta de Camarate (Portugal). The pasta dish is really good despite the misgivings I had when I saw the recipe.

Welcome to the forums OhtheHumanity. When I saw your first post, I knew you would get a warm welcome.
i am 18. i study. i dont drink alcohol in excess. and i dont have a hard time getting laid. im not your typical 18 year old.

and i also get that 99.99% of you people like meat. thats cool. i liked meat at one point in time. i used to be the kid that only ate the meat off his plate.

the truth is this thread is for veggie food pairings. not for your ignorant jokes and comments aobut how much you hate vegetarians. go boost your ego someplace else... like in real life perhaps?

indybob, you know nothing about me. Therefore, please do not make baseless statements about me. The post that you referenced didn’t even pertain to you unless, of course, Indybob is aka ohtheHumanity.


Hey, it's not my fault that I read a little something into your spelling of your homestate. Feel free to blast away with jokes about dirt naps. And me, ohtheHumanity? C'mon now.

And ohtheHumanity, you seem like a nice kid. If you want nice gentle banter, join www.thathomesite.com
If you haven't noticed already, this forum is filled with Masters of the Universe types along with the obligatory paper tigers, and most have the huge egos to match.
We've got about five pages of bickering here now, and that's after I've made my best effort to remove the worst of it. Please try to make an effort to show a little respect for one another or I'll just close down the thread.

This goes for the rest of the vegetarian/carnivore battles that have been waged this week as well.

Steve,

I clicked on your link but nothing would come up. This is a really simple pasta that I throw together in the summertime when we have fresh Roma tomatoes and Italian Flatleaf Parsley.

Prepare the Roma's ahead of time by cutting in half, removing the messy inside, and dicing them in 1/2" pieces. I usually use six. Heat some light olive oil in a pan, and add several garlic cloves that have been peeled and smashed. Use quite a bit of oil as this will be used to coat the pasta. Throw the garlic into the oil before it gets hot, smashing them further to release their flavor. Try to keep each smashed clove together because you will remove them once they start to brown.

After removing the garlic, add the tomatoes, cut-up parsley, and a little salt and pepper, cooking for 5-8 minutes (depending on how cooked you like your tomatoes). I like to throw in some red pepper flakes too, to add some spice to it, but that's just me.

Use tongs to remove spaghetti from the water when it's done, and add directly to the mixture. Toss and serve. This goes great with a Mastroberadino Falanghina wine.

To mix things up a bit try adding a little wine to the sauce after you add the tomatoes. Clams and mussels go well with this too.

There, that's my contribution to the vegetarian menu planning. And yes, I learned this from my landlord's wife in Napoli. Smile

There is so much (authentic) Italian food that is vegetarian, I'm surprised no one has made a serious reply to this. I'd personally like to know too. This board seems to know a lot about meat and fish, but what about classics like

1) Insalata Caprese
2) Penne alla Vodka
3) Spaghetti al Pomodoro e Basilico
4) Spaghetti alla Carbonara
5) Gnocchi alla Gorgonzola

Confused
bacon is meat...

and you dont loose weight just because you go veg...

people think that you loose weight when youre veg because its hard to find a fat veget. truth is thetre is just a high correlation of being veg. and being calorie concious.

if you want to loose weight i suggest eating smaller portions of healthier meat. (turkey buffalo ostrich...) and eating more veggies. theres no need to give up meat to loose weight.
Eating a smaller portion is good, mostly because it is easier to digest. From what I understand you should eat about as much as you can hold in two cupped hands.

Think about this, if a person ate 4000 calories of celery a day, and another person ate 4000 calories of meat or cheese. Who would be the thinner person?
4000 calories of food x vs. 4000 calories food y. you can do it with anything you want. but in the end all those "diet tricks" that you read in magazines at the supermarket only offset your calorie needs by 100-200. so unless you write your calorie intake down and keep neurotic track of it and balance it all off... youre just fooling yourself. eat less calories = store less fat = body uses stored enegery = loose body fat.
Come on, ohtheHumanity - 'fess up. Who are you? If you really are an 18 year old kid, your spelling and punctuation are perhaps the worst I have ever seen. This is either an exaggeration to make us believe you are a kid, or you just might be an 18 year old, but should have been held back in second or third grade to learn punctuation and spelling. I think you're pulling one on us, so come clean.
