      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Haven't done much on the forums lately, job has been crazy the last couple of months - I've been peeking in but not participating as much as I'd like to. Thought I'd share what I came up with tonight.  My garden's putting out about 4-5 BIG zucchinis per week right now - I needed to find a fresh application. My kids wanted plain old spaghetti tonight - easily crowd pleaser for them, and I like it too-- but I took mine to the next level...

Spaghetti Zucchini Boats!

1.  Slice your zucchini in half lengthwise (make sure you slice it parallel to the table top as the zucchini lays naturally so the final product stands on its own).  Then scoop out the seeds.

2.  Brush hollowed halves with a little extra virgin olive oil and season lightly with kosher salt and pepper.  Place in a 375 deg oven for 10 minutes, just to get them a little tender.

3.  Fill your halves with your spaghetti and top liberally with mozzarella and shredded parmesan cheese.

4. Broil on second rack from the top for about 5 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown and bubble.

Not a new idea by any means but first time I've tried.  Didn't follow any recipe and it turned out WAY tastier than I thought.  Knew it would be good, but it was absolutely fantastic, not to mention easy!  Zucchini sort of lends itself to italian, but next time I might try some type of chicken filling or taco. ENJOY!

So, did the kids actually eat the zucchini, or just the spaghetti out of them and leave the empty carcasses on the plate?

Ha!

I just fed the kids the standard spaghetti or it would've ended up exactly how you said it, Del.

Glad to know that your kids are like my kids and now grandkids...  I was wondering if things changed that much recently.
