'Course it does! We don't eat "greens" in these here parts, but we like our goetta and eggs, goetta with sugar/maple syrup, or just fried goetta. Yummmmmm.

We have our own kind of chili here, too. It's called a Three-way. You got your spaghetti, topped with chili made with many spices (including cinnamon and ginger) then all that is smothered with shredded cheese. It's called Cincinnati Chili.

I am now compelled to repeat myself: ":yuck2: And ya'll picked on Charlotte and me for eating chicken livers?"

(I see that Charlotte has finally checked in again, has seen how you were dissing her livers, and hopefully is coming up with a plot to set you straight).

But - I have to bite - what in "Sam Hill" is goetta?? (Please don't make me sorry I asked!)

That one was so close to getting on my list.

Just for that I won't tell you what happens with parsnips... :lol:

Have to run now, I'm at work and I'm busy. Till tomorrow...

It's OK, Charlotte. Join the club. A certain friend of mine (who we all know :grin: ) keeps diss-ing my spaghetti and my curry too. And I forgive her.

Peter Jackson is scheduled to direct, and I believe that he and Fran Walsh (his wife and co-writer of the LOTR script) will be adapting the screenplay. I think the movie is scheduled to be released sometime in 2007.


Wow! Thanks, Johnny Fanatic, for the info. I will inform my other book group.

I'd like to know too, but the spaghetti with chili and cinnamon and ginger sounds yummy. Of course, this is coming from someone who puts curry powder in her spaghetti sauce.

Goetta is a German concoction....

http://www.goetta.com/index.asp?page=WhatIsGoetta

The Greater Cincinnati area has a very strong German heritage. Part of our downtown area is known as "Over the Rhine." My own ancestors were Germans who came to America in 1720.

The chili was invented by a Greek. It's delicious!

Better late than never--
MOVIES
Donnie Brasco (this doesn't appear on enough people's lists!)
POTC
B&J
Don Juan De Marco
WEGG

NOVELS
Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Broken Prey by John Sandford (I'll tell why later)
Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich

PLACES
in bed, reading
beside Silver Lake in New Hampshire, reading
Whistler's Peacock room at the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington
my kitchen, fixing dinner for my family
choir loft at church

FOODS
smoked anything: salmon, bacon, oysters, cheese, ham, turkey . . .
chocolate anything
raspberry cheesecake
arugula/pear/blue cheese/walnut salad
crepes from the Maison des Crepes in Brussels (for atmosphere as well as food)

SONGS
E Lucevan Le Stelle from Puccini's Tosca (makes me cry)
Allelulia by Randall Thompson (makes me cry)
Layla by Eric Clapton (sometimes makes me cry)
Your Song by Elton John (makes me cry)
anything by The Who (very little of which makes me cry)

Ok, the reason for Broken Prey by John Sandford is that in it, the main character receives a gift of an iPod and a certificate for 100 songs, and spends much of the novel trying to limit himself to 100--no more, and no fewer--songs. A friend suggests that that downloads are not too expensive, and that he should just get whatever songs he like. This suggestion is greeted with scorn--"you just don't get it."

Those of you who chose Washington DC as a favorite place--where in DC, and why?

Broken Prey - that sounds intersting, fansmom. I see you picked Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell - that one almost made my list.

Broken Prey is actually a detective novel, lumineuse, and part of Sandford's "Prey" series featuring Lucas Davenport. Sandford is a pseudonym, and the author is actually a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist whom I've heard speak a few times.

Bits of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell have stuck with me since I read it, which is always a sign of a good book. I asked my daughter to list five, and hers were all classics: The Scarlet Letter, Catcher in the Rye, etc. I asked why, and she said because she thinks of them long after reading them. Good reason (and it makes me feel guilty for including the Stephanie Plum books on my list!).

I get it. Especially as I try to narrow down my list of 31 Songs for Monday night's thread!! Tough assignment ONBC leaders!!
