Pssst! Got a sec to chat? We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.
Consider the weekly Coffee Klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic. You can always find it from the link in the left rail, or by bookmarking http://eatocracy.cnn.com/category/buzz/coffee-klatsch/.
Never mind the furthermore, the plea is self defense.
Looks like I'm soon to be homeless, so I have a questions for the What Would Klatschers Do...I'll be moving out of my house in about a week and new place won't be ready for 2-3 weeks approx. so I'll be in a hotel for 10+ days or so.
Packing up the kitchen and want to empty the spyce/oils/vinegars cabinet. WWKD – What spyces could you not live without for week? I'll keep those out until the last moment. Thanks!
Well, there's the obvious ones like salt and pepper. I think I'd keep granulated garlic (though fresh is always better), minced onion, paprika, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and maybe some allspice.
The answer-salt,pepper,Saigon cinnamon and red pepper flakes. BTW–left you an answer somewhere on this page. I 'm surprised AleeD didn't jump on it–:))
Welcome back/home! Where where?? I've seen the other comments unless you were incognito...
Sitting in Cheyenne,WY–the Real Wild,Wild West.Taking a day off 'cuz i gotz a cold and because I CAN. :))
Look out beloooooow!
OK, here's what won out: Garlic Salt, Peppercorn grinder, Canadian Steak Seasoning, a can of Spam, my olive oil bottle/dispenser thingy, and Pampered Chef Italian Seasoning (the best in the world IMHO). Now on to the vinegar/condiment cabinet...
Make that a can of PAM spray! o.O
What's wrong with humans?
Took a nice-sized chunk of flesh out of my little finger this morning. Do you know how hard it is to type with a bandage on your pinky?
BTW, TGIF. :)
Ouch! Yes, pinkies are important in typing, not as much in cooking. How did this happen?? And yes, insomnia has hit the left coast, maybe it's the full moon...
Youch! Yes, it hurts a lot. I cut the base of my thumb about a month ago and its still not right. Best of luck!
When replacing batteries in your favorite toy,please keep all pinkies pointed upward.
Battery installation via tea drinking position. Thanks for the head
My balls itch. :(
Yes, they do.
My cootch is itchy. What did you give me?
Clean up on aisle 9 please... :)
^ whiny-aśś bïtch got offended, and tattled to mommy. :(
What happened, did they kick your azz off the Marquee Troll Blog?
No. More fun fûcking with you food losers over here.
Grandma's calling you up from the basement...time for din din
Ah, the old 'basement dweller' insult. Did you come up with that all by yourself?
Truth hurts – when he has a mind to.
Truth might hurt were it so. Alas, it is not.
No, but I do picture you as a pimple faced teen sitting in your room trying to bully people online because I refuse to believe an adult could post such nonsense...have fun at the mall today. :D
Stooge. Believe what you like, but you're wrong, wrong, wrong. Have fun watching Matlock reruns.
Carry on. Umm.
Anyone see the hero cat video?
I did. Someone give that cat some nip! That dog would have done some serious damage to that little boy. Thankfully, they decided to keep that cat!
I showed the clip to mine and he looked at me and yawned...
Awesome cat video - and it turns out the kid's mother who "apparently" abandoned the child in the video was off to stave off another potential dog attack, since that creature might return. Humans, though, aren't as fast as cats.
Good morning all, and two words describe this weekend:
Will be VERY nice to get out of Denver (nods to Bob Seger)
How is everyone doing these days? Has brother RichHead weighed in yet on the BBQ thread? I would think he would be all over that one...
Got a 1/4" of rain yesterday. More is on it's way today. Must be Summertime in Floridor.
Remember dat code you had in your doze? Now I gotz it. Just friggin great.........
Holy blown noses, Batman. That took a long time to get to you from here. That is one well-traveled doze.
Yup. Takes a code a long tibe to get to Wa. frub Fl. BTW, you can hab it back anytibe.
Radio icon Casey Kasem has been found in Washington state, a representative for his daughter told CNN late Wednesday night. "We have received confirmation that Casey Kasem has been found in Washington state," said Danny Deraney, who represents Kerri Kasem. "The family has grave concerns about his medical care. The Kasem family will do everything in their power to bring their father home."
You may now resume your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.
Not the start of the catalog, but some fun stuff this same week in 2011...a fun list posted by SirB on this one, but I think it might be moderated nowadays...
2011? You guys have been chatting for a long time. I think that's just great!
I will, defiantly, check that out. Thanks!
Oh man, those were good! I'll never remember all of them, but, good laugh!
Lol! Send me one of those catalogs!
(How long did it take to come up with that? I need that much free time!)
That is the catalog. I could use that much spare time, too.
Those were some fun times, it started out small and we kept expanding it...kind of like the modbotz list. Give Squirrel a Whirl and Whirled Peas I think were some posts a while back. Would be fun to look back at when we started the catalog, but have no idea on dates.
There are some reference dates towards the end of the catalog.
That's too funny! I'll be laid up in the near future & will have time to go back & look. It will be a good laugh, I'm sure! 😃 Thanks, JBJingles!
Hrm...I'll see if I can do a search. Hang on.
GGF – our new word/phrase for the commando thing, I'll let you figure out what it stands for! :)
I was thinking Girls Gone Free, but they both work...other option is TGF (kinda like TGIF) tatas gone free LOL
How bout going "Cheetah"? They're justa swangin ...
Good morning! Looks like I missed some fun here yesterday...work, work.

The Official Klatscher Motto: "We're not just a blog, but a collection of people with WAY too much free time on our hands"
"but a collection of people with WAY too much free time on our hands"
I was just gonna suggest that........
There was a time when, um, time was plentiful. Now ... not so much. Fortunately it is now just a case of maintenance.
Does wooly jockstrap come in steel wool?
Special orders are always accepted.
Well done, good memories here!! Put a smile on my face on an otherwise blazing hot day.
NOW, I really see why those two people are holding their faces in their hands...
Uhm, got a question.
Just met a nice girl, and I want to set the mood...what color hood and b@pkg@g would you suggest? I want her to know I am serious about her...Uhm.
I'm a tree hugging, bunny thumping liberal vegan. What have you got for my crowd?
Happy Tootsday (nod to RH) everyone!
OK, so I'm looking for a new cutting board for my new home (my current ones are at least 14 years old and have seen better days)...any ideas? Bamboo, plastic, butcher block, Eatocracy?? (hint hint)
Play-doh. 1. That way, you have something to play with then you're finished cutting and b) it adds a distinct flavor to your meals.
Well that was a big help... How are you feeling? All healed up?
All healed up and ready to go. Thanks for askin'.
Who you callin' wise guy?
I need to get new collars for my four legged friends. If only there was a place we could find all of these products in one catalog...
You've got mail.
I was looking for real home cook/chefs opinions on cutting boards...a lot of talk on wood vs. plastic, etc. Now, if anyone really has way too much time on their hands, can you help me find this bed?
I've been searching the internets for a week or more and not having much luck. thankyouverymuch
I have 3 bamboo boards. Two are cheap ones and spared no abuse. So far they have survived an over night soaking and a couple of hot pans right off the burner placed on them with no ill effects. They seem to hold some vegetables in place better when cutting than the plastic ones, I'd call them more toothy. I like them.
I have many plastic cutting boards. They are my work horses. Just don't use them as a hot pad/ trivet and they will do fine. They are a little slippery on my counter surface but a couple of silicon hot pads or a kitchen towel placed underneath them makes them well behaved.
My favorite is a heavy 2 inch thick maple butcher block board. Its mass makes it a little unwieldy but it takes a heavy knife and a meat cleaver better than the rest. It's the go to board when you have to hammer out thin cutlets. I'll often use it as a stand for my other boards as it is stable and puts my knife at just the right cutting height and this way I am not constantly cleaning that heavy thing during prep.
My pops made some pretty sweet cutting boards back in the day. Nice butcher block type stuff. Worked at a place literally called Doors and Windows so spare wood was plentiful. Made many things out of that stuff.
Including a paddle that would make Jesus shake. =(
"Including a paddle that would make Jesus shake."
Oh Lord does THAT bring back memories.......
Ah thank you! I was thinking bamboo, but good thought on also having the heavy duty butcher block for the um pounding of the meat! I love tenderizing chicken breasteses by pounding out thin cutlets before cooking.
Ahhh. The pounding of the meat. Sure fire way to put a smile on many faces. ~_~
Handling the big bamboo isn't ... hard ... to take either. ~_~
With the fizzum fazzum and the bizzle bazzle and errbody walkin' and nobody talkin' and the thing with the face and the Jello pudding pops...
Yeah, buddy. Think that was a scene in Family Guy, wasn't it?
Waba hapbin, Fatba Alburtt?
Hola! We are heading into a scorching week with a forecast of 1oh1 on Thursday. Break out the kiddie pools please.
You can keep the heat. I'm heading way north for the summer. In cool weather you can always add another layer but in the heat of a southern summer, there is only so much you can take off with getting arrested.
without, not with
Within You, Without You
101? Mui Caliente! Eso apesta! Mantener fresco, mi amiga!
Let the chi-chis be free, then.
Good Morning Kidz from a Beautiful Auborn Washington…Who says it rains all the time in Seattle?? Nice mountains on the way up and down–Big Blue is better than ever,and it's a Great Day.
At JBJ–You've got Mail and a Present…Enjoy. Be Safe Everyone…I'm gonna work on my tan while getting unloaded. :))
Mail, check, present, not yet... If you happen across some Cougar Gold White cheddah, you must give it a try! Be safe.
Hey Big Guy,
They having a saying in in that neck of the woods; People don't tan, they rust.
Very cool present my Bestest Food Friend (BFF)! A truck size winged pig hood ornament, perfect for my new grill when I get it, or the worlds largest and heaviest paper weight...LOL Now about that keychain...not sure what to do with that one! Thank you.
I would have loved to seen your face when you opened up the keychain-only a Real,Strong Woman can handle a Gold Bull Balls Key chain. I remember you saying that you collected pigs and when I saw that at Iowa 80 I knew it belonged to you. Happy Birthday and your Welcome.
Welcome to my neck of the woods. You couldn't have come at a better time. The weather is awesome right now. Enjoy it while you can and rock that tan!
I like his sweater. L.L. Bean?
Good morning! Sunny Sunday here, and today too. Sorry Truth had to deal with late spring snowfall, but they do need the water. I hope all the mothers here (human and furry alike) enjoyed their day.
I can haz cheezeburger Auntie?
You can haz anything you want, sweet kitty....tell your Daddy I said so.
^ The general public's reaction to anything Sarah Palin says
Palintwit will love this comment.
"Was that you or the dog?"
"It was me."
That pic says, "Oh, gawd, that stupid waiter gave us decaf!
Or possibly heartburn.
Or possibly, "pregnant?"
It looks like the 'before' section of an erectile disfunction ad.
They're in the Witness Protection Program.
No Need. Was the dog.
But it all seemed so harmless when she found her high school sweetheart on FaceBook...
