The Weight Gain Challenge

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

In the basement I have a collection of Fullers Anniversary Ales going back to 2006 (drank my 2005's a couple of months ago), and some Tree Double Hop Heads from three years ago.

I've done some vertical tastings of the Double Hop Heads and the older ones have a much fuller rounder flavour and longer aftertaste. Damn enjoyable. I know not all beers will stand the test of time, but when they do ....... yum.

A few are better aged but the one true brew to bind them all...cask conditioned, cellar temped ale, hand pumped is best consumed in a fortnight :D

Sam Adams has some great storage beers... Niagara Falls Ice Bock was also an amazing one to have around after a few years...

Fuck, ya bastich! I'm thirst'n for a hopper right now but have a Monster in hand to get this paper done :evil:

It's fuck'n playoff hockey baby! :drunk:

OK TopTop you win, I'll make you happy (seen as how you make us happy with your esoteric humour which some us get butt chose to ignore because it tastes bad :evil: )...

Swiss Chard...can be a little bitter for some but do it up this way and the nutritional values are disguised by the flavour... 8-)

2 bunches Swiss chard, (2-1/2 pound/1.25 kg)
4 tsp (18 mL) soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) sesame seeds, toasted
2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil
1 tsp (5 mL) maple sugar

Remove stems from Swiss chard and reserve for another use. In large pot of boiling salted water, cook leaves for 1 minute; drain in colander and rinse under cold water. Press to extract as much liquid as possible; transfer to bowl.

In small bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil and maple sugar; pour over leaves and toss to coat.

Red Snapper

2 red snapper fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
4 tablespoons EVOOO (*see above rant)
1 medium clove garlic, pressed or minced
3 or 4 drops Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Creole or Cajun seasoning, or your own favorite seasoning blend, with salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon snipped fresh chives, optional


45 calories, 29 g of protein, 2 g of fat, 0 g of saturated fat, 0 g of carbohydrates, 53 mg of cholesterol and 64.5 mg of sodium. Red snapper is particularly rich in vitamins B-6 and B-12, providing 0.52 mg of B-6 or 26 percent of the recommended daily value, or DV, and 3.97 mcg of vitamin B-12, or 66 percent of the DV per 4 oz. cooked portion. Red snapper is also high in certain minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and selenium. A 4 oz. portion provides 592 mg of potassium, or 17 percent of the DV; 228 mg of phosphorus, or 23 percent of the DV and 55.6 mcg of selenium, or 79 percent of the DV.Omega-3 fatty acids.


Not the biggest fan of rice or brown rice after switching to Quinoa from a nutrient aspect. Good fibre is all....goes with the spicy snapper and sweet, salty sesame chard

Heh, we all now you love the Africans... :roll:

One lone voice among many that say local organic is the way to go. Rising fossil fuel prices, unproven GMO, irresponsible biofuel production and a focus on Sustainable Development, like less food waste (efficiency), new sources of food (bugs and sea vegetables (soylent green?! :shock: ) all tied to running out of resources.

Food security is not about Big Ag and Petrochemical companies coming up with scientific solutions to world hunger. It's about teaching people to fish, responsibly (ask Doc breath, it even says that in his Bad Book ;) ).

Doesn't take a brainiac to figure that one out, unless you've been lost in the woods for a while... 8-)

Nice ideals, but it still doesn't feed the earth's current population.
