[00:46:07] * Bytram waves a friendly greeting to mrpg
[00:47:21] <nick> buenas tardes mrpg
[00:47:46] <Bytram> ahh, so THAT is how it is spelled! Muchos gracias!
[00:49:56] <mrpg> Hola, good evening, how are you ? me, food poisoning, I'm ok.
[00:50:15] <Bytram> urk!
[00:50:28] <Bytram> Food poisoning is nasty!
[00:50:36] <nick> feeling cold but otherwise, all is well
[00:51:03] <nick> and food poisoning doesn't sound 'ok' but it could be worse
[00:51:24] * Bytram had a bad case from something he ate at a "superb owl" party a couple years ago... woke up in middle of night and had to keep switching positions on the toilet -- coming out both ends with great rapidity.
[00:51:35] <Bytram> thankfully, after a couple hours, the worst of it passed.
[00:51:59] <Bytram> was seriously wondering about how I could get to the hospital without causing an unmitigated mess.
[00:53:10] <mrpg> wow.
[00:53:35] <mrpg> I have a little pain, I'm better now.
[00:53:48] <mrpg> Can't eat ,milk, cheese, tuna :-(
[00:54:01] <mrpg> I've read they are not recommended.
[00:54:08] <Bytram> I suspect this is a lesson that you will not soon forget?
[00:54:47] <Bytram> so, no tuna-noodle-cheddar casserole for you, eh? ;)
[00:55:46] <nick> mrpg, none of those things for now, or in general?
[00:56:18] <mrpg> For now. I like to eat those.
[00:56:34] <mrpg> I eat tuna with spaghetti hmm good
[00:57:59] <nick> well thats ok, better than being told never again... no one can tell me not to have milk
[00:57:59] <Bytram> sounds like it could make a good pasta salad! Add a little celery, croutons, grated parmesan OR vinagrette... it DOES sound good!
[00:58:19] <Bytram> nick: do NOT have milk!
[00:58:24] * Bytram took that as a challenge, yanno?
[01:00:29] <Bytram> nick: btw, many thanks for pushing out a bunch of stories... things were starting to look kinda slim for this evening
[01:01:21] <mrpg> I used to buy a pasta salad, I'd never tried it cold (the pasta), it was very good. Now I'm trying my hand at shredded meat.
[01:02:18] <Bytram> ~eds Got an email from JR -- things are okay, but there have been some delays -- he misses us and it looks like it will be at least a week before he can even think about popping back in -- more likely a couple weeks. --Bytram
[01:02:19] <exec> editor ping for Bytram (reason: got an email from jr -- things are okay, but there have been some delays -- he misses us and it looks like it will be at least a week before he can even think about popping back in -- more likely a couple weeks. --bytram): janrinok zz_janrinok n1 nick martyb Bytram cmn32480 coolhand takyon bytram|away Fnord666 charon GreatOutdoors FatPhil Snow goodie mrpg
[01:02:30] <nick> :(
[01:03:17] <Bytram> The good news is that JR is personally doing fine. The bad news is that he is such a nice guy, he's being pulled in three different directions to help out others who are having some 'health issues'.
[01:04:08] <nick> well that is some good news, give him my regards if you do a reply
[01:04:20] <Bytram> That we, who have never met him, can miss him so -- imagine those who have met him and with whom he is related -- I know if I were ill, I'd sure like to have him in MY court!
[01:04:33] <Bytram> already done. =)
[01:05:08] <Bytram> " I'm sure I speak for the whole crew that the priority is for you to take care of your family (AND YOURSELF!! hint hint!). "
[01:05:54] <nick> :)
[01:06:25] <mrpg> Good luck
[01:08:54] <Bytram> when I think back to how many times JR & LamX would fill the submission and story queues by themselves when things ran low... I count my blessings we have so many contributors and editors!
[01:10:21] <Bytram> all this talk of food has made me realize I should fix some dinner!! -- biab
[01:11:17] <mrpg> biab be in a brunch
[01:11:28] <mrpg> im eating bananas, soft food.
[01:11:47] <mrpg> biab back in a bhile
[01:11:48] * nick is eating spring rolls
[01:12:08] <nick> they're not great, but thai sweet chilli sauce makes everything better
[01:12:47] <mrpg> one day I'll look up an egg roll recipe, if it is easy I'll do it. If not, then no.
[01:15:41] <nick> im still trying to remember that the processed food here is usually rather bland and disappointing, ontop of being expensive
[01:15:49] <nick> these spring rolls are just another reminder of that
[01:16:29] <nick> my actual cooking at the moment is mostly inspired by 'Food Wishes' youtube/blog
[01:21:09] <nick> one of these days i should make my own empanadas
[01:23:09] <mrpg> hmmm empanadas! I used to make them at night years ago.
[01:23:20] <mrpg> with cheese
[01:23:54] <nick> i'm not big on the cheese, which doesn't really help when most of them here have a lot of cheese
[01:24:24] <cmn32480> my mom used to make them w/ taco fillings
[01:24:44] <nick> the other day i was lazy and bought some freshly made, one was a pork bbq filling, super awesome stuff
[01:25:13] <nick> but at $2.50 each, i think i'd be better making my own
[01:25:39] <nick> taco empanadas would be awesome
[01:26:25] <mrpg> I like arepas with sausage and mayo
[01:26:49] * nick googles arepas
[01:27:49] <mrpg> Like this but wo the yellow thingies http://www.cunit.com.co
[01:27:50] <upstart> ^ 03Cunit
[01:28:01] <mrpg> maize
[01:28:10] <mrpg> maîze
[01:28:26] <nick> so like a cornbread type thing
[01:29:07] <mrpg> yes
[01:29:11] <nick> is mayo really popular all over south america?
[01:31:53] <mrpg> It is comonly used with bread, bbq, salad.
[01:32:09] <mrpg> I dont know if all over, but maybe.
[01:33:39] <mrpg> bbq with yuca and mayo
[01:33:52] <mrpg> yuca: https://www.startpage.com
[01:35:46] <cmn32480> my wife makes he empanadas w/ ham and cheddar
[01:36:38] <nick> mrpg, as ive noted before... uruguay seems to be fuelled by mate, beef and mayonnaise
[01:37:10] <nick> for every bottle of ketchup there's 10 mayo, for every bbq sauce there's 30 mayo
[01:38:04] <nick> cmn32480, ham and cheese is the most popular here i think, or is tied with beef and olives
[01:38:39] <cmn32480> interesting....
[01:38:48] <cmn32480> beef and olives??
[01:38:53] <cmn32480> sounds different
[01:39:36] <nick> they seem to like to use them in most things here
[01:39:47] <Bytram> What kind of olives? Green? Black? Greek?
[01:39:52] <nick> anything thats a mix of ingredients, always add olives
[01:39:55] <nick> usually green
[01:40:09] <Bytram> hmmm, with pimentos? or w/o
[01:40:51] <Bytram> btw, wrt: https://soylentnews.org

[01:40:56] <mrpg> hey that food blog looks cool. food wishes
[01:41:02] <Bytram> the language in question is.... COBOL.
[01:41:19] <nick> mrpg, i enjoy it... lots of easy ideas on there
[01:41:38] <nick> the videos are enjoyable to watch too, if you can get used to the guys narration
[01:41:47] <mrpg> I'll try something in there.
[01:42:24] <nick> all the stuff i've tried has turned out good, but you'll probably be in the same boat as me, can't get all the ingredients for some of the more exciting stuff
[01:42:37] <mrpg> I like fried eggs with onion. Sounds weird, but tastes good.
[01:43:07] <nick> fried eggs go well with basically anything in my experience
[01:43:20] <Bytram> mrpg: s/fried/green/
[01:43:21] <exec> <Bytram> <mrpg> I like green eggs with onion. Sounds weird, but tastes good.
