Half-price notwithstanding, milk chocolate doesn't appeal to me. I prefer the dark stuff.

Made another fritata, with ham, for my easter (ok, Oestre) dinner. No pineapple.

Now that it's technically Monday in much of the world (including the east coast of the U.S., where I am), we can wish each other Happy Half-Price Chocolate Bunny Day!

(There's actually a Facebook page for "Half-Price Chocolate Day". In addition to the movable March/April date, it's also celebrated, with different form factors of chocolate, on February 15, November 1, and December 26.)

Well, I didn't have ham for easter dinner.  My mother made a delicious pork tenderloin with apricot/cranberry dressing.

Oh my. And I always felt guilty biting the head off a chocolate hunny.

When I was involved with ACA, one of the guys in our group told us that his alcoholic mother DID serve rabbit one Easter, and told her very young children that she's caught and cooked the Easter Bunny.

Sometimes I'm glad that all booze did to my father was make him stupid...not nasty or violent.  But is WAS tragic because when he was sober he was a brilliant man.  >8 (

Well, at least most people aren't eating rabbit for easter.

The woman in that ad just looks like she was out in the sun all day...wearing sunglasses.

I got curious about why ham is traditional for Oestre dinner, and found this interesting web site.  (I thought the ham was to prove that we weren't Jewish.  WRONG! But we sometimes had ham for xmas, too.)

http://www.foodtimeline.org/easter.html

As most of us already know, the traditional "Easter" customs and foods date back to pagan festivals....it's fascinating...to me, anyway.

Except for lamb.  We often had leg of lamb for Oestre.  Deeee-licious!  And it never occurred to me that we were eating Jeebus.

(I have often suggested that an xmas creche should have a crucified lamb [or a roasted leg of lamb] in the manger since the ONLY reason for the myth of Jeebus' birth was to be a living sacrifice to appease his/his father's[?] delicate ego.)

However, most of where gelatin comes is here.

Comment by Sentient Biped on April 20, 2014 at 3:42pm

You cant have fresh pineapple in jello.  Fresh pineapple contains enzymes that liquify the proteins that make jello gel.

That may be what happened to the nice lady's face as well.  Got sprayed with pineapple juice.

Once it's cooked, the enzymes are destroyed.  So you can use canned pineapple.

As a vegetarian I don't eat jello, so I am safe from strange Mormon desserts.

I've got to admit Carl, that was a funny ad for IGA. However, if you look at that woman's face, I think she may have a severe case of Rosacea. Probably brought on by eating too much pineapple.

I had no idea SLC was the Jell-o capital of American. Even though I know what the stuff is made from, I don't mind it all that much, so long as there's no pineapple in it. I don't need to develop rosacea :-)
