the original thread is here:

the previous thread is here:

Cloudy's Cafe



Come in, be welcome, be comfortable, be yourself

Welcome to Cloudy's Cafe, a place to have a cup of coffee or a good
darjeeling and the finest in conversation and camaraderie.

The proprietor asks that you follow a few simple guidelines:

this is a real conversation zone, not a role-play zone



* no flaming; if you disagree with a viewpoint expressed by any patron, please do so in a civil manner

* any topic is fair game, but keep posts to the standards that Ziroc has set for the entire forum, please (ie: foul language is not appropriate and things should be suitable for all audiences)
-a side note from Cloudy: I see this as a place for those short
conversations about a new baby or the latest soccer fiasco, not for things that are big enough to warrant their own threads, by all means give those things the space they need and post separately!

* Please, no one word or smiley posts (Ziroc has declared them 'real spam' and the proprietor doesn't want the reputuation of "good spam" to suffer!)

* do feel free to be serious or silly and enjoy the company of others while you are here. By all means POST if you have something to say, even to start another topic , we can handle multiple chats, we're a CAFE!!! But be courteous and don't disrupt a conversation just to disrupt it.


Come on in! The bar is stocked with coffees, teas, juices and waters from around the world. And purple napkins, of course!

The lighting is low, the golden oak counters and tables glow with inviting warmth. Near the window, the lighting is brighter, as comfy, plush leather armchairs wait for those who'd like to read a book while relaxing to music or just lazily watch the world go by.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!



PLEASE NOTE



This is a modified reminder that I've posted before in reply to someone asking "can we spam the cafe". It still holds true, so I'm going to repeat it periodically for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Read the first post of the thread, it's NOT a spam zone. If you want to discuss you grades, a problem with a teacher,the weather, your neighbor's new car etc.....etc.. (real life conversations) this is the place. I don't mind a SMALL amount of spam but when the Cafe gets to be 8 pages in one day and it's all one liner pure spam, I have to ask people not to do it because most of the members who would come to talk about their day or things that they want advice or sympathy or cheers on, will not post in that atmosphere. I want you to be comfy here, but not at the expense of other members.

So the answer is NO, I don't want to see page after page of roleplay spam or one liner spamfests that could be done on msn or aim etc. because our goal is to TALK WITH one another , not fill up a cafe in five hours. HOWEVER, I'm not gonna jump on anyone for a few of these kinds of things, only if it gets out of hand.

Well Cloudy I can't actually find my cookbook right, now but I have a website where I get loads of my recipes from (cooking is a hobby of sorts )

Website- http://italianfood.miningco.com/mbody.htm

Arguably my favourite dish from the site (for when you're in abit of a hurry and yu've gotta mix something up)-

FRIED CHICKEN WITH TRUFFLES AND MUSHROOMS IN CREAM SAUCE
Submitted by Daniel B. Wheeler and C. Robert Brittain

4.5 Lbs. Chicken
1 22 Oz. Jar Uncle Ben's Creamy Mushroom Sauce
1 Cup White wine
1/4 Cup (2 ounces sliced) Oregon White Truffles or Oregon Black Truffles.

Fry chicken in a skillet for 45 minutes or until brown. Drain fat.

Add 22 Oz. Jar Uncle Ben's Creamy Mushroom Sauce, 1/4 cup thin-sliced Oregon
White truffles (Tuber gibbosum Harkn.), and 1 cup white wine. Simmer for
additional 10-15 minutes to let sauce blend.

Makes 8-10 servings, depending upon appetite

Another one of my favourite recipes, Chicken And Chick-Pea Stew

1 pound Dried chick-peas (garbanzo beans)
1 teaspoon Baking soda
3 tablespoons Olive oil
2 pounds Chicken legs and thighs
1 slice Whole-wheat bread
1 large Onion -- sliced
2 large Tomatoes, red ripe -- diced
1 slice Bacon
2 cups Chicken stock -- fresh or canned (do not use bouillon)
1 Bay leaf -- whole
2 Garlic cloves -- crushed
2 Hard-boiled eggs -- peeled
1/2 cup Dry sherry
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
Salt -- to taste
Pick over the chick-peas carefully, discarding discolored ones, small stones, etc. Soak them overnight in ample water to cover, along with the baking soda. Next day drain and rinse the peas. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Drain the peas and discard the water. Set aside. Heat a large frying pan and add the oil. Brown chicken pieces on all sides and remove from the pan. Fry the bread in the remaining oil. Remove and set aside. In the same pan saute onion, tomatoes and bacon. Cook until the onions are clear. Place the vegetable mixture in a 6-quart lidded Dutch oven and add the chicken pieces and the chick-peas. Deglaze the frying pan with a bit of the broth. Add the pan drippings and the stock to the pot along with the bay leaf and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the chicken is tender, about 45 minutes. In the meantime, crush the garlic in a small bowl. Break up the fried bread and add to the garlic along with the yolks of the hard boiled eggs. Mash the mixture along with 1 tablespoon of the sherry. You want to create a garlic-egg paste. Chop the whites of the eggs. When the chicken has been simmering for 45 minutes add the garlic paste, the chopped egg whites and the remaining sherry. Stir the pot carefully and simmer for another 10 minutes.

Sorry I couldn't find my book, the recipes in it are way better, when I do I'll drop you a PM OK. Give the website a look though its pretty good

Oh forgive my rudeness fellow denizens of the Cafe, hello everyone!

Hi All!! Hi Arion. Antryg, I smacked you with a trout in the last cafe for that pun. Antryg, do you use that user name on any chats? (I don't need you to mention which ones). Just curious, because that user name seems familiar, but I can't figure out why.
So, how is everyone today? Only 1 1/2 hours and then I can leave work for the weekend!!!

How you doing Kaltia? Did you qualify for any British Olympic teams? I hear they are having the tryouts in PE classes.
