      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 .

What are you cooking up over Labor Day weekend?

Recommended Posts

End of summer, looks like nice weather, what are you going to be cooking up over the weekend?

Sat I'm doing some beef shish-ka bobs on the grill (need to get it marinating tonight!) and Monday I'm doing a turkey breast that I bought on sale last spring, dug it out to thaw this morning. Will probably do something in foil to go with it, either potatoes and onions or cabbage.

What are you cooking up?

I am deep frying a turkey and my Dad is making a beer turkey on the grill on Monday. My sister is making the stuffing and others are pitching in with some other dishes.

Grilling steak butterflied and stuffed with mushrooms, onions, and some sort of high temp swiss cheese that doesn't melt off in the grilling process. Held together with toothpicks in a way that gives it a canoe shape.

I made fish tacos on Saturday, did a second smoke on some hocks Saturday night and used them to flavor a pot of beans I cooked today, then I made some herbed flat bread to have with them.

We kept it simple. Walleye, perch and marinated chicken with some "heart attack" potatoes (3 cheeses, bacon etc) Did a simple beer batter with some Goose Island 312 beer, tasty, and added Panko Bread crumbs on about half the fish. Very tasty. I would highly recommend Panko Bread crumbs, expensive but tasty.

Friday morning we headed to Memory Lane in Gilbert for breakfast, then spent the afternoon doing some Geocaching in the area and back to camp for beer butt chicken, dressing and pineapple upside down cake (made in the Dutch Oven). Saturday we had breakfast burrito's and spent the day fishing and visiting with friends. Supper time came and it was Hobos, green beans and apple cobbler (made in the DO) with ice cream. Sunday morning started with "sticky buns" (made in the DO) and 2 different kinds of egg bake. We spent the afternoon 4-wheeling, both in the mine country and the ORV park and got back just in time for beef and chicken Sish-Ka-Bobs and cheesy potaoes (from the DO). Monday for our final meal it was thick sliced french toast and thick sliced bacon from pigs that I raised. By 1:00 we were all packed and saying goodbyes and headed home. What a great weekend, super weather and friends!!

    • The MN DNR doesn't think we've had much movement but Louisiana thinks half their teal have left.  Its early and I haven't had coffee yet, so my reading skills might not be up to par but that's what I just read. The good news is we get to figure it out for ourselves tomorrow.  Good luck!
    • I hope it's just a really good teal spot; we need those little guys to hang around for a while!  
    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
