      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 .

Potage Noel

Recommended Posts

Anyone make it with leeks or the "old style one" with truffles? I have an old recipe from a 1963 Christmas book, using the truffles, but think it left out some ingredients...anyone have a recipe? I'm looking for the more onion type potage, not the veggie type...I expect Del most certainly will have one....;)

OK, being always up for a challenge I googled "potage noel".   Turns out that is just "christmas soup" in french.   So looking at the translated versions of several french language sites isn't much help as they have all sorts of suggestions for soup to eat at Christmas.

 

I checked my copy of "mastering the art of french cooking 1 and 2" and nothing.   Gonna need some clues or background or something more to go on.    

 

Have chestnuts in it by any chance?

Nope, has a pic, and says "This creamy onion soup....."  talks about it again as a thick, hearty onion soup, but look at the ingredients...no onions or leeks...? I've wondered about this for many years...they must have left out something. You can see green things (leeks?) floating in it in the pic.. the recipe on the page is:

 

 

5 Tbsp butter

4 Tbsp flour

2 qts seasoned chicken broth

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 egg yolks

1 canned truffle, thinly sliced

3 Tbsp diced pimento

 

Heat butter and stir in flour; simmer; add broth and continue simmering for 1/2 hour until thick and smooth. Blend heavy cream with egg yolks; then add to soup, stirring constantly,then simmer for 5 mns. Garnish with truffle slices and pimento and serve.

 

Pics of it and the 1963 book it's in...there's three books in that Time-Life set. Fun to read these old volumes.....

I would guess that the first section of recipe got cut off somehow.  There isn't a missing page in the book is there?   I could do some guessing, but who knows.

    • Looks good, for sure. 
    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid. 
    • Heard the teal started to move south from some friends fishing the Minnesota river. I hope some stuck around Princeton but I know there is some wood ducks around 
    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!
