It's not fancy kraut with beetroot.

We have regular kraut too. I often sautee onions for a bit, then add garlic, then dump in saurkraut, and put it on low. Excellent side dish with pierogies and/or brats.

The little lady ran the gauntlet at Safeway for those (and much more) today. Right now I'm drinking the brine out of the kraut container that was already in the fridge, yumm!

She also got me a couple of Watermelon Red Bulls!!!! :bday: :bday: :bday:

I love kraut. My mother used to make different kinds. There was a small restaurant here that had knockwurst and saurkraut on rye with dill pickles and mustard. Sad when they closed.

He had Chapeau for a good while; it's only the last year or so that it seems to change frequently.

True. But lately there is Avatar lability.

I can't find it; someone will certainly be able to post the big version up. It was an old man in a cycling outfit raising a glass.

The sauerkraut I'm eating right now says it's "old fashioned."

Unclear how that differs from modern sauerkraut.

I remembered the picture, I wondered if anyone knew who he was?

I admit when I first saw it I wondered if it was Trainsnorter himself. I think other forum members have made the same mistake.

I appropriated the pic for my avatar a few years ago off of Twitter. I have no idea who the old guy is or who took the pic.

We're having pulled pork here, along with sauerkraut's distant cousin, cole slaw!

No Safeway here.

Does the beetrootkraut have chunks of beetroot in it? Or is it mostly just juice?

It looks like we're gonna save the finger minus the tendon that allows it to flex above the second knuckle. They tell me I'll be released from the hospital on Wed. Thence begins 4-6 weekly dr. visits in covid land with an immune system compromised by antibiotics. Is there anything I can do for the immune system under that regime?

Just catching up.

Sorry to hear that seeds, heal up soon,

The Piggly Wiggly probably has it.

Never looked that closely. If I have some tomorrow I'll be sure to analyze it.

My grandmother used to make sauerkraut in a big crock in here basement. It had caraway seeds in it and was absolutely delicious. Have not had any commercial kraut that's even close. I miss her and her cooking dearly. Her lemon meringue and chocolate cream pies were amazing, and always made together.

Annual bonus in Friday’s paycheck. Would cover a nice power meter and some black market TP...:innocent:

My mom and brother used to make sauerkraut too, in a huge crock with a black bag of water on top and they’d always make a huge choucroute garni for my dad’s birthday. Caraway, wine, and a little brown sugar were added during the cooking.

I was visited by the stomach flu fairy in the middle of the night. As usual, feeling drug out this morning after such an episode.

Too late for you now, but I have seen interesting discussion of a safety device for a table saw called "SawStop". Here they demonstrate with a hot dog:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOReKxH5NlA

The hot dog is barely nicked in the process as the blade retracted just as it touched the hot dog. It essentially destroys the blade if you get your finger in there, but that's better than a trip to the hospital.

I think that won't go on just any saw. Mine is an old Craftsman. But yeah, I'm aware of it.

This is cute:

"Shakespeare in Gloves" and "Don't Stand by Me" are two of my favorites.

I've got one of my own: "There's Something About Fauci."

In case you are too lazy to read the (entire) piece, the theater holding the contest and the surrounding area is where "The Blob" was filmed. IMO, McQueen's finest work. :)

This is even cuter and funnier. She lives in the neighborhood the next to mine.

I think WF has it, at least here, and HEB does as well. Most decent grocery stores probably do.
