Actually, Gatorade and grapefruit juice might just work.  Gatorade has salt and sugar, grapefruit juice has the acid.  Need a little fat though....olive oil or butter.  I would marinade it for a couple of hours.  Poke some holes in the roast to let the marinade penetrate.  Some flavors of Gatorade are just awful though.

I've never done this, but some folks here use Sundrop or Mountain Dew on ham. A librarian I know uses orange juice in his holiday turkey. Rob compromises with the bird due to being Jewish. In WNC, most folks serve ham on Christmas.

I suspect it's the 'Christmas' bit that's confusing.

the Turkey certainly didn't have me confused. We have Turkey on Rosh Hashana, Thanksgiving, and Passover.

A Jewish friend once told me "no one celebrates Christmas quite like a Jew."

I assume he was actually talking about Stupidfest, not Christmas, but it's reasonable to expect that if the whole culture is saying BE FESTIVE NOW! then it's an opportune time to do so.

Which reminds me ... I've got to start planning a party for Tu B'Shevat.

Illumination: Rob's wife is not Jewish, and she hasn't converted yet.

What kind of ethnic sausages are available in your area? Someone's making soutisso locally for the Waldensians. It's good and light on the spices. Definitely not like 'italian sausage' from a chain grocery store.

In my area? Probably just about any kind imaginable. I don't live too far from DC.

Re the chicken and pepperoni thing: Years ago there was a Chevy Chase/Goldie Hawn movie in which she made "chicken in pepperoni sauce." Now I'm tempted to go find a recipe.

Having had my main meal in the middle of the day, and the wife and kids are away tonight, I decided to make myself a nice tuna sandwich on toasted rye bread for supper tonight. When I drained the can I thought to myself "there is no way that's six ounces of tuna." Fished the label out of the trash and sure enough ... they've switched to five ounce cans.

I hate when they do this. If they have to raise the price, raise the price.
Don't downsize the container to try to fool us into thinking the price didn't go up. It screws up recipes. Sure, five ounces happens to be a better amount for one *big* sandwich, but what if I were making several smaller sandwiches?

<falls off chair laughing hysterically at IG>

My father had that same rant 4 months ago when they made the switch. He's still making it. And he's screaming that the price went up too when it went to a smaller size.

IG has turned into my father. Oh godz....


<waits for the next rant on cereal prices where they did the same thing more exepensive and less ounces>

Chereos, kix, life, and frosted mini-wheats have already done this... several times.. and it really does mess up recipes...

If they're going to confuse everyone, they ought to take the opportunity to switch to metric.

there are several things dragging down the american crafters.

I'd say not using the metric system is the most important one.

Broken software patents may soon become more important.

Agreed. Metric is way easier to work with, how hard is it to divide or multiply by 10? We already sell drinks and other liquids in liters, why not convert the whole food industry first??  The government's answer to that was "Double label every food item with english measurement and metric measurement just to not confuse people..." which confuses people anyway.. Most of the machines at my work are already metric (cm, mm, km, C°, etc...) and that's what we design our prototypes to...

I think the only reason people have not converted here in USA is they're afraid of change. I say, just take the plunge.. lol you sound lighter in Kg than you do in lbs.

A change would be short-term painful but long-term useful. People are lazy and stupid.

since the rest of the world speaks metric (well, the british still are able to buy a pint in a pub, but thats sort of a last resort ;-) once an american company wants to work with the rest of the world they have to use the metric system...

make it 15 years with double, I guess after 1 year home depot wouldn't be able to sell you a "-g inbus nut anymore.

I guess it would probably go like the start of the Euro; They assumed to do it double half a year, cash machines were switched on 0:00 01. 01.

Shops would just return in Euros, plus you'd get "starter packs" with coins in advance...

after about two weeks the switch was done > 50% ; after another two weeks it was > 90% and after two months most people just had some DM coins left so they could put it into shopping-carts.

If you now have some DM left, you have to go to the state-bank to swap it. all done.

 

I guess Once they would decide to switch, imperial measurements would go away much faster than they'd expect it anyway.

Wouldn't that (flipping crafting machines etc.) also be a good way to push the economy into new investments? ;-)
