Non of the conversations/arguments on here interest me. So let's have a food discussion again.

We had pulled pork sammys yesterday, today will either be pasta carbonara at home or bar burgers out. Nothing fancy.

My SO is in class until 830 pm so I will put together the IKEA cabinet we bought over the weekend and have dinner ready when she gets home...dinner being center-cut filets with red potatoes cooked in butter/seasonings and some sort of easy side vegetable.

I might do somethign a bit more complicated but it depends when i get out of work.

Wondering how my future step-father will be. He was rushed to the ER last night at about 8:00 pm. At first it sounded like a heart attack or stroke. Turned out it was pancriatitus (have no idea how it is spelled), but since he has to do dialisis (probably spelled that wrong too), he had to be droven down to either Fort Collins or Loveland, Colorado. They gave him morphine for the pain, but it sounds like he'll only have to spend a few days to a week in the hospital taking anti-biotics and fluids, and he'll be alright.

I did a girls' night out with my two friends at the MP on Friday. It was tasty. :) We also usually go there for our birthday.

We had planned to go to a newish local bar & grill near our house with the girls. Hubby got there first while I was picking up the kiddos from preschool, and he called and said it looked like it was closed down. They have another location in downtown Austin (which opened after our North location), and they said that they had decided to close that location down, and today was the first day it was closed. Seriously. Who closes a restaurant ON Valentine's Day, especially if you've got two locations? Wait until the 15th and cart everything 20 miles to the other place.

Anyway, we wound up going to Razzoo's, a cajun place. It was so yummy. Hurricanes were on special. I would have gotten two, since Hubby drove, but I'm back and work and need to be somewhat sober. :) Hubby took the girls to get ice cream.

Magnolia Cafe. And yes, it's quite tasty. :) There are a lot of good local landmarks in the South Congress/Riverside area.

I do like Pat O'Briens the best of any hurricane mix I've found. The last time I had any with POB mix was right before Katrina hit New Orleans. I made up a batch and we toasted the city before it all went down.

The Mexican place was also closed (which is wierd, right?), so we ended up having V-Day poutine, and watching the Big Bang Theory. Sadly, there was no room for cupcakes. Ha ha. Dessert after dinner tonight, I guess.

I was sick with a borderline asthma attack yesterday (thanks to high mold/tree pollen count and the lack of wind and humidity and cool temps). Bryan took time off work to come get me and take me home (he had to go back to work, though). And then on his way home from work later, he stopped off and got chicken noodle soup from Chick-fil-A and picked up a dozen roses for Valentine's Day.

And then held me while I coughed all night.

The closest Chick-fil-a for me is in the Boston area. Its more of a "once every year or so" type of thing. Which probably makes it taste better than it really is. As far as fast food chicken sandwiches go, I think they are the best with Popeyes being right behind them.

My V Day was grand. I got roses at work, pretty. We had a plumber visit for a measly $700...and had to wait for him to finish up before we went to dinner so I was starving. I was tired and a bit cranky, so we went to Zach's Hot Dogs and I had a Uptown Buffalo Dog. Huzzzzah!

Mother has difficulties with products that have at some stage been over 40 degrees, but she will live unless it is a sustained diet. I have issues with cocoa products, soy, most colourings and flavours, and wheat. The only one of these I can't get away with eating is the colours and flavours one (and possibly the soy; I have not checked that one in a while, mostly because I do not like soy very much anyway.) As a female, it is sometimes necessary to consume chocolate and to hell with the consequences.
There are also certain other things I am not meant to have due to my thyroid problem - most of my favourite vegies! - but sometimes I just go to hell with the damned thing and eat them.
My father is built like a brick dunny and has the bowel tolerance of one too.

As a person with a masters degree in food chemistry maybe I can help.

When you are lactose intolerant it means you are alergic to the sugar typr called lactose. If you are allergic to milk you are allergic to the proteins in milk.

There are lactose free or low-lactose milks and creams. In that case the lactose sugar has been removed by processing.

In yoghurt, sour cream, sour milk and cheese the lactose have been broken down by lactic acid bacteria which produce lactic acid from the lactose. The lactic acid works as a form of presevative. Some cultures (mongoles for example) don't have refrigerators and don't use milk. Instead they produce yoghurt which they can store for a while and then consume, this is why that many from such cultures are lactose intolerant.

The L.A. bacteria also brake down some of the fat in the cheese to produce the ketones that gives the cheese its flavour. That is why cheese with long riping periods tastes stronger.

(Lactic acid is the same substance that forms in your muscles with extensive exorcise and make them work less effective. It is because the muscles demand more oxygen than what's available and that's when it forms. I won't get into the how)

When the Vikings discovered America (called Vinland). There's a written story (don't know the source now) of how the Vikings reached what is now Manhattan. They met the natives (indians) and exchanged gifts and gave the natives food and drink (including milk(they had livestock with them)). The next day the natives attacked the Vikings because they thought that they had been poisoned (lactose intolerance).

Many people become lactose intolerant when they grow up. The exception is the people whose origin is from my part of the world who's lived with fresh milk for thousands of years and have that as a basic food also in adult age.

Tomp
02-16-2012, 10:00 AM
Clarification lactose intolerance is not a form of allergy. It is an intolerance. The auto immunic system isn't involved.

It is an inability to absorb the lactose in the intestines and often results in stomache pains and running stool (Yeah yeah a wandering chair, I get it).
It can destroy some of the fine filament hairs in your intestines, which help absorb different nutrients.

A2 milk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A2_milk)

I think it should be extensively studied before making any claims at all.

Since it is about proteins it has to do with the allergy not the intolerance and that can be dangerous if handled wrong.

Aren't most animal allergies based on the proteins? My allergy to cats and dogs is actually to their saliva and a protein found in that. (My dogs are trained to not lick me for the most part -- sometimes they get excited and forget. And if they get regular baths to wash their saliva off their fur, they don't bother me too much.)

Yes, I think basically all allergic reactions is to proteins from different sources.


The A2 milk was from a new breed of cows. They were said to not include a type of protein and I guess claims are made that they are safe (or safer) to drink for people with milk allergy.

Since an allergic reaction potentially is MUCH more dangerous, than the reaction to lactose intolerance, I thought it should be extensively studied.

You don't want to have a picnic in the countryside with some milk in your tea and feel how your throat is closing up and it's 5 miles (see I used imperial) to the nearest road.

I didn't exactly mean it like that. But it was produced/released/released as vhs all before I was born. So I never would have really seen it at the store or seen previews on tv or whatever. I'd already need to be searching for 80's movies to find it.

Actually it's a four year studying programme in university which is directed towards the science behinds food and you get a masters in chemistry, but it is angled toward the science of food.

You have the microbiology and biotechnology (with fermentation (cheese, beer, salami)).

There's some gentechnology.

There's some foodtechnology (freezers, dryers, ovens, pipes, heat transfer and so on)

There's a whole lot that concerns food chemistry in related subjects like, for instance:
human, animal and plant physiology,
nutrition,
toxicology,
cellbiology,
immunology,
quality control in food imdustry
and a lot of other subjects.

The food chemistry courses was more about the chemical build up of different foods. Meat is basically a muscle, but other things. For instance one of the hardest foods to describe chemically is ice cream.

The first year was a solid grounding in basic, organic, bio-, and physical chemistry.

I've written this out of order and probably forgotten some stuff that should be included.

We didn't delve into it too much.

It was conflicting research back then and we were generally a little sceptical to it.

However, we did get to taste pure MSG, just a very small amount. It tasted like raw meat. We picked up the taste of our own tongue.

When it comes to MSG in the food industry we mentioned it and discussed it a little, but we didn't dwell on it back then.

Also, this was some years ago now and I may be forgetting some details.

On MSG, I think it has a bad rap. Its a traditional ingredient in Chinese cooking.

hey now, Spaceballs was released when I was a toddler but I've still seen it about 5 times, most recently just a few weeks ago when it was on tv. I've also seen Blazing Saddles and Robin Hood: Men in Tights :D

Incidentally, I've seen and greatly enjoyed ALL the classic episodes of Tom & Jerry, most of the Road Runner ones, Gone With the Wind, Some Like It Hot, Sound of Music and Singing in the Rain. I've never seen the Wizard of Oz though, which does mean that all of the Wicked hype just goes way over my head... and frankly I don't think I'm missing that much.

Does anyone else watch Gone With the Wind and think to themselves "Wow, this is a ridiculously racist movie"? I mean, I appreciate it as a great work of cinema but the inherent racism in the entire plot/story (and the book its based on) is brutal.

um... look at where/when it's set and when it's made.

TBH, I was always a bit surprised at how Scarlett (a Southern slave owner) interacted with "her" blacks, both before the war, during it and in the sequals after the war. All the tolerance seemed a bit of an anachronism...

The movie itself got a best supporting actress Oscar in 1939, the first ever given to a person of colour - a few decades before the Civil Rights movement even started.

ETA: from Wikipedia:
Upon hearing of the planned film adaptation, the NAACP fought hard to require the film's producer and director to delete racial epithets from the film (in particular the offensive slur "nigger") and to alter scenes that might be incendiary and that, in their view, were historically inaccurate. One fictional scene of particular concern from the book was that in which black men attack Scarlett O'Hara and the Ku Klux Klan, which had a long history of practicing racial terrorism on black communities, responds as saviors.[21] Throughout the south black men were being lynched on shady allegations that they had harmed white women. That attack scene was altered and some offensive language was changed. Still, another epithet, "darkey," remained in the film and the film's message with respect to slavery remained essentially the same. Consistent with the book, the film's script also referred to poor whites as "white trash," and it ascribed these words to black and white characters.

The Loew's Grand Theater on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia, was selected as the theater for the premiere of Gone with the Wind, Friday, December 15, 1939. When the date of the Atlanta premiere approached, all the black actors were barred from attending and excluded from being in the souvenir program as well as southern advertising for the film. David Selznick had attempted to bring Hattie McDaniel, but MGM advised him not to because of Georgia's segregationist laws. Clark Gable angrily threatened to boycott the Atlanta premiere unless McDaniel was allowed to attend, but McDaniel convinced him to attend anyway.]

Most of Atlanta's 300,000 citizens crowded the route of the seven-mile motorcade that carried the film's other stars and executives from the airport to the Georgian Terrace Hotel, where they stayed. While the Jim Crow laws kept McDaniel from the Atlanta premiere, she did attend the Hollywood debut on December 28, 1939. This time, upon Selznick's insistence, her picture was featured prominently in the program.

It was her role as the house slave who repeatedly scolds her owner's daughter, Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh), and scoffs at Rhett Butler (Clark Gable), that won McDaniel the 1939 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first black American to win an Oscar. She was also the first black American ever to be nominated. "I loved Mammy," McDaniel said when speaking to the white press about the character. "I think I understood her because my own grandmother worked on a plantation not unlike Tara." Her role in Gone with the Wind had alarmed some whites in the Southern audience; there were complaints that in the film she had been too familiar with her white owners. However, one author has observed that McDaniel's character is not far off from the persona of Mammy that Margaret Mitchell created in the book, that in both the film and the book the much younger Scarlett speaks to Mammy in a way that would be unacceptable for a Southern teen of that era to speak to a much older white person, and that neither the book nor the film make any hint to Mammy's own children (dead or alive), her own family (dead or alive) or her desires to have anything other than her life at Tara serving on a slave plantation. Moreover, while she scolds the younger Scarlett, Mammy never crosses the senior white female in that household: Mrs. O'Hara. Some critics felt that McDaniel not only accepted the roles but in her press comments actively affirmed Hollywood's stereotypical practices as appropriate, providing fuel for critics of those who fought for black civil rights. Later, when McDaniel tried to take her "Mammy" character on a road show, black audiences did not prove receptive.

While many blacks were happy over McDaniel's personal victory, they also viewed it as bittersweet. They saw [Gone With the Wind] as a book that celebrated the slave system and condemned the forces that destroyed it. For them, the unique accolade McDaniel had won suggested that only those who did not protest Hollywood's systemic racial stereotypes would find work and success there


Not that different from Selucia, really. In fiction, strong personality but still... property.

But, still, we do encourage outdoor play more than anything. Our kids only get about two or three hours of screen time per week, not including homework.

This. I certainly used to do things like run off down the street and forget to tell my folks. And I used to get in trouble for it. And sometimes bad stuff happened when I was out with my mates, but I seem to have survived it all so far. I certainly learned a lot...

We seem to be developing (or have already developed) this culture whereby we won't let kids be kids, yet we also allow kids to dictate societies rules. I find it sad. Also, I don't have children, so I appreciate I have a slightly fanciful ideal in my mind of how I'd like their childhood to be.

Figures, of course. Adults tend to forget what they were like as kids. But if kids are in charge themselves, they'll make rules intended to prevent them from doing precisely the kind of stupid things kids tend to do. So they only have themselves to blame: if they hadn't grabbed power, they would still have their freedom.
