      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.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
