      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Thanksgiving Cranberries

Recommended Posts

Here is the one I use:

1 1/2 c. orange marmalade

2/3 c. orange juice

1 cinnamon stick, broken in nalf

12 oz. bag cranberries

Combine the first 3, bring to boil.

Mix in cranberries, return to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium, simmer til berries burst and sauce thickens. (about 5 minutes). Put into a bowl for cooling.

I usually do this in the morning so when the dinner is done they've been cooling for the day.

Also don't let the orange scare you off. There isn't that much of an orange flavor.

Good Eats, Kid

P.s. the original recipe called for fresh Italian parsley to be stired in after cooling. And to season with black pepper. I've always skipped this step.

Here's my recipe that is always a hit and the jala pepper gives it a great flavor. Also after making it, taste for flavors as it may need a tad bit more sugar, etc

Cranberry Salsa

(Great with Baked or Deep Fried Turkey)

Makes about 2 cups, Serves 4-6

½ Bag of fresh or frozen cranberries(about 1 heaping cup)

2 teaspoons grated orange zest

¼ cup finely chopped onion

1-2 large oranges peeled membranes removed

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or coriander(available at Cub)

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger(can use bottled)

1 tablespoon or about 1 small to medium chopped jalapeno pepper

½ cup sugar

Chop cranberries coursely in food processor. Peel oranges and coursely chop in food processor remove all membranes before adding to bowl. The juice that is produced from chopping oranges should be added to bowl also. Add remaining ingredients. Try to allow flavors to blend overnight, serve room temp.

Heres my families favorite:

1# cranberries

1 orange

start with one cup of sugar, add more to taste

Cut orange into small chunks, peel and all

Place in blender with cranberries and sugar and pulse until orange and cranberries are coarse chopped

Refrigerate and enjoy. No cooking, simple and easy

For those who are diabetics, you may use half a cup of sugar and half a cup of splenda.

    • I think part of the problem was that rent was too high in riverdale. It should be better at that location. And it is right off the highway may be better for them. Time will only tell.

    • Hello, I am thinking about getting only one sonar/gps for my boat.  I am looking at a HB Helix 10” si mega on the console.  I will most likely be buying a Uterra ipilot, no link.  This is a new boat and I am looking to save some money. I will have a nice large rear casting deck and really only fished in the bow of other boats when fishing shallow weed lines. any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
    • Finished pork loin I fixed up, squished spuds, kraut and grilled asparagus.
