@farmerman,
Jobby is a slang/ kids term for a **** over here, as in 'big jobs.'

@farmerman,
Slimy cheesecake is the unbaked cream cheese [email protected] Vile stuff, though I do love graham cracker crusts a lot. Actually any crushed cookie crusts work for me.

@ehBeth,
then Iv never had a slimy heesecake. I do (very much do) love the Shumsky cheese cakes with the sour cream top layer. Its sweet and only slightly sour with a nice caramely finish.

@farmerman,
I asked around here - apparently the one I hate is the Philadelphia cream cheese cheesecake. The ones I like best are the dry baked ones - especially if there is a fair bit of lemon in with the quark/curd. I like them tart.

OK folks, I need some ideas to successfully prep for a Christmas Eve Dinner. Most of the food I plan to serve I can successfully prep the day before, but I want to peel and slice some potatoes and I’m not sure how to prevent them from turning grey in the fridge. Can I just cover with cold water and store in the fridge????

I injured my back a few years back and it’s difficult to stand for long periods in the kitchen, plus when my family comes over my grand daughter will be flipping out until presents are open....that makes it difficult to finish up in the kitchen. Plus she’s an incredibly picky eater (don’t ask, I can’t possibly get anymore pissed), and I’m determined not to get exasperated this year.

@glitterbag,
Yes, peeled and sliced potatoes will be fine covered in cold water and put in the fridge.

I'm a picky eater. My family used to just serve around me or save me stuff I like from other meals.

In looking back I can see where I was a gigantic pain in the ass. Still am, but not about eating.

Enjoy the holiday, kid.

@Roberta,
My mother peeled potatoes and covered them with cold water every morning before going to work. Our after-school chore was to drain them, refresh the cold water and start them cooking before she got home.

I was also an incredibly picky eater as a child. I had about a dozen foods that I would eat without complaint. Chicken, corn, macaroni and cheese, plain pasta with butter, popcorn (with butter), toast with bacon and eggs (we cooked our eggs in bacon fat), egg salad, bologna sandwiches and cheddar cheese. Being a Vt-er we ate lots and lots of cheddar cheese.

@glitterbag,
I offer fussy eating kids the same as everyone else. If they don't want it they don't have to eat it. I never made my children eat anything because I was forced to eat stuff I didn't like by my parents and it screwed me right up.

If they're still hungry give them a slice of bread and butter.

Btw my kids are very adventurous eaters now.

As an aside this year we're having duck for Christmas dinner.

@JPB,
Thanks Roberta and JPB. I’m just a little stressed trying to get the food together without exhausting myself. But JPB if my Grand daughter would eat some of the things you listed I would be thrilled. She will only eat a certain brand of Turkey Dogs, only chicken nuggets from Chik fil A, (which is problematic) white bread, and the crust from pizza (after the cheese and sauce has been carefully scraped off). However, she does eat fruit but it has to be fresh. Can’t argue with that.

Hi, fussy eaters do grow out of it if you don't make a fuss. It can be a right pain in the bum mind, there was a time when my youngest would only eat sausages.

I know that soaking the potatoes in will will leach out a lot of the potassium, which is neither here nor there for most people.

Dialysis patients have to avoid potassium, so soaking them is necessary for the occasional times they choose to eat them.

If you lived closer I could help you on this. I have a friend who eats pizza 3 to 5 nights a week. He doesn't want the crust though.

@Sturgis,
Maybe I’ll move closer to you! Wow, pizza 3 to 5 days a week, that’s depressing.

I made sure that my kid eats everything - or I should say she had to try everything. If she really didn't like something that was okay then, but it turned out that she liked almost everything. She just got a bit difficult as teenager and she absolutely hates pineapples, but that's okay.

How can you eat pizza that often? The carbohydrates must make him to be
400 lbs. not to mentions his LDL levels.
