Topic: OT ? For PNWG V attendees (22 msgs / 549 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
First the question (for those attending PNWG V) then some background on =
the
question.
Would you prefer the main meat dinner entrée to be:
A) kalua pork.
or
B) kalua turkey.
Debi & I have attended a number of different luaus in Hawaii. Kalua pork =
is
always served but in addition one also always serves kalua turkey. (been =
to
that luau multiple times, different years.) I don't think it'll be =
practical
to serve both AND still have either huli-huli chicken or kalbi beef. And
since the kalua pork & kalua turkey are more similar makes more sense to =
do
one of the two and huli or kalbi.
While many attending did attend PNWG I and had my kalua pork then and =
some
have been to luaus in Hawaii, chances are slimmer attendess have had =
kalua
turkey and just thought it might be a nice option to offer. They are =
both
indeed very good! There is the outside chance I'll further change my =
mind
and do both but regardless will also have huli-huli chicken or kalbi =
beef:-)
FWIW if there are any concerns about sterotypical "dry turkey" rest =
assured,
my turkeys (whether kalua or otherwise) the birdie is both fully cooked =
AND
even the white meat squirts juices when cut:-) Those on the List who =
came
for the I forget what get together where I served more mainland =
traditional
apple cider brined cherry smoke roasted turkey dinner can attest to =
that!
Now back to your (ir)regularly scheduled coffee programming. Pallets
provided as both tables and chairs for your viewing and cupping =
pleasure:-)

Sorry it looks like Barry is having surgery on May 30 and will have to =
miss spending Father's day with his two daughters and grandson as well =
as PNWGV. But I certainly wont miss my 2 bulging spinal disks and bone =
spurs which have invaded the lamina of my spine. Will have to delay my =
trip to Portland until the fall. The surgeon has promised me that after =
30 days I will be able to take long walks. After 60 days I will be able =
to play golf (I have never been able to that before) guess that's an =
added perk. He did give me enough narcotics for my cruise to Alaska =
though. I figure I have enough to swim alongside the ship from Vancouver =
to Anchorage and when I get there still enough to wrestle a Grizzly =
Bear.

5) From: raymanowen
I wish you the very best outcome of your surgery, Barry!
Absolutely do no more or any less activity than the Doc specifies. If he
utters a certain expletive, you salute him and ask, "How much, and where
sir?"
Man, I grit my teeth just thinking about it...
Cheers and Very Best Wishes! -RayO, aka Opa!

I lived in Boston for 3 years and found the weather to be very resistible.
Unbearable, maybe, but definitely resistible.

Larry -
There has to be something genetically wrong with me, because I absolutely
love the insane weather here in the Boston area. Even when everyone has HAD
it with a long, grey winter, cold, rain, snow (sometimes all in the same
day), Iive for it! Even love the drizzly days (like today).
I lived in Arizona for a couple of years - what was I THINKING?? All that
sun... no clouds... open space. Man, I thought I'd go insane. My son even
said that all the open space made him feel like he was being suffocated.
(But even he doesn't have the same love for the weather that I have...)
For me, it's perfect weather to curl up with a great cup of coffee....

I can understand that. I don't feel it, but I do understand it.  I missed
thunderstorms in the summer when I lived in Boston (just don't have very
many, at least not when I lived there). And it wasn't that the winter was so
severe, it just lasted too long. I craved some color in the landscape other
than gray.

Well, I am sorry to hear you will not make it Barry.  Good luck.
Mike, I would vote for the turkey, but either is fine.

11) From: Dave Nielsen
miKe,
It is all good!  If you make me pick I'll go for the turkey!  I've had
both and they are hands-down the best I've had, you've mastered the
art.  I think you served the aforementioned turkey at a small get
together at your place about a year and a half ago around Thanksgiving
time.
Barry,
Good luck on your surgery, I'm sure everything will work out fine and
you will feel great afterwards.  Mobility is a good thing!  I'm going
in tomorrow to have a cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implanted.  After I
stabilize it is off to OHSU to find a cardiologist that is a little
more aggressive than my current one.  We'll miss you at PNWG V and
hope to see you when you come over later in the year.  Miss Silvia is
doing fine, she is very patient with me, I went through a phase this
past winter where I couldn't drink coffee for a couple of months.  I
cad drink again but have to watch my fluid intake due to congestive
heart failure...
Take care to all,
--Dave

Hey Mike... either one of these options will taste amazingly good to me! =

p.s. I'm sure the turkey would be great too.

my guess is that Kris McN prefers the pork. I'm not sure though. I've 
been known to be a little slow at times.

Mike,
I hope to bring my wife along and she would definitely prefer the  
turkey. I on the other had .... will eat either/both. When do you  
need a definite commitment on how many will be coming in my party  
(could be 1 to 4).
I am looking forward to my first PNWG!
