You Can´t Corral Some Folks´
Taste for Ranch Dressing

Wall Street Journal, by Lindsay Gellman

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/18/2014 7:21:21 AM

Mike De Jesus tries to maintain a healthy diet. But to make his food choices more palatable, he often turns to a certain oyster-colored glop. The 29-year-old online advertising sales manager dips broccoli, carrots and celery sticks into ranch dressing, something he says he eats "pretty much on a daily basis." The zingy, buttermilk-and-herb accompaniment is so addictive that "I would be miserable eating a salad otherwise," says Mr. De Jesus, who works for a large Silicon Valley technology company. Americans´ eating habits have changed dramatically in recent decades, as shoppers dump frozen food for fresh and abandon the canned-food aisles. Yet even

It is delicious and I love it. Unlike some food nazis, I don´t ban it. I just eat it in moderation as I do all things. And I am in excellent health.

Yes, my daughter has the same yen for chunky Bleu cheese. She will order a ceasar salad with Bleu cheese dressing. A bit embarrassing, but like # 1 said, everything in moderation.

P.S. Most salad dressings can be easily made from scratch at home in small batches using fresh ingredients and avoiding the processed items and preservatives.

Some of the tanginess in the original HVR has been dumbed down. Ken´s is more like the original. My husband likes Ranch.

We use Italian for marinating chicken breasts.

Why is Bleu Cheese embarrassing #2? It is THE ONLY way to eat wings. And #3, try the Italian marinade on steaks, then grill em. It is delish.

#4, A classic Caesar dressing is compossed of lemon juice, anchovies, a 1 minute egg and salt and pepper.
Absolutely OK to put on it what you want, but to a purist the above is the only ´Caesar salad´ there is.

Life is meant to be enjoyed. To deny yourself something you enjoy (something that hurts nobody) simply because some busybody says you should seems silly.
You can enjoy your life and die, or be miserable and die anyway.

Ranch dressing was my favorite (still like it) until I found Ken´s Vidalia Onion, at least for salads. I agree Ranch goes well with so many other things like potatoes and other veggies.

Catalina was another long-time favorite.

Someone in DC should be pleased that we at least eat salads!

Ranch is ok as a dip. I prefer the old fashioned Green Goddess dressing for salad. You have to make it yourself. But I like that. I add extra anchovies and lots of pepper. Everything is better with extra anchovies.

No mention that some fat in the diet is essential to good nutrition. And flash-frozen and canned vegetables actually retain more nutrients than fresh. Doesn´t fit the narrative.

My favorite is bleu cheese dressing on an iceberg wedge with some chopped tomato, a little bacon, hard boiled egg, and crumbled bleu cheese -- yum!

Here’s Where Martha Coakley

Oh Wait, Nobody Has Any Idea

If there’s one major policy issue to the startup community, it’s noncompete clauses. Should they be legal? Should they be limited? On Monday, some members of that community were looking to get answers from Martha Coakley and Charlie Baker about their stances when the candidates for governor spoke to a tech- and startup-minded crowd in Cambridge. They didn’t get much. Noncompetes are a contractual tool with which employers can require new hires to agree not to work for a competitor for some time after they leave. Imagine you worked as a data analyst for a few years and decided it

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

The U.S. shale boom is about to hit another big milestone, as it looks like fracking will propel American liquid petroleum production (that includes oil and natural gas liquids) past Saudi Arabia for the first time in nearly a quarter century. The FT reports: US production of oil and related liquids such as ethane and propane was neck-and-neck with Saudi Arabia in June and again in August at about 11.5m barrels a day, according to the International Energy Agency, the watchdog backed by rich countries. With US production continuing to boom, its output is set to exceed Saudi Arabia’s this month or

   

 



 
Top VA officials steered contracts

Investigators have recommended the government bar a Virginia company that employs a who’s who list of former powerful federal officials from getting contracts after they found employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs improperly tried to steer business to the firm. The VA’s inspector general said in a scathing report that Susan M. Taylor, deputy chief procurement officer for the Veterans Health Administration, “continually” lied about her dealings with FedBid, the well-connected reverse auction company whose advisers and employees include two former top White House procurement officials, a general and a former congressman. Ms. Taylor and FedBid officials sought to “thwart” a

Eric Holder´s political justice

Upon Attorney General Eric Holder´s resignation last week, NBC´s Chuck Todd made an odd comment: “[W]hat’s interesting about him, he is a very non-political person.” There may be merit to saying Holder has been more ideological than political, but it still seems like a strange thing to say about him. After all, his most famous act before his tenure as Attorney General had been to help arrange President Bill Clinton´s highly unusual and controversial last minute pardon of a wanted fugitive — mega-donor and billionaire Marc Rich. Holder not only recommended the pardon (calling himself “neutral leaning favorable”) but was also

The slogan of Delaware State University is “Making Our Mark on the World,” and a faculty member is doing just that by endangering the lives of thousands of people in Ebola-ravaged West Africa. As medical workers, bolstered by the U.S. military, struggle to contain a rapidly expanding epidemic, Prof. Cyril Broderick published a newspaper article in Liberia stating that the same military “manufactured” Ebola as a biological weapon and started the plague by testing it on Africans. Still more, Broderick, a plant biologist, asserts that some of the organizations battling Ebola — including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Left’s Pre-emptive Hits on

Just this week, two seemingly unrelated events unfolded, but they actually reveal a new liberal tactic. The Hillary Clinton Front-Group, American Bridge, filed a bogus federal complaint against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and then a federal probe into New Jersey Governor Chris Christie found no evidence linking Christie to “Bridge-Gate.” Meanwhile, Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted last month. Make no mistake, these events are related. Emerging is a new liberal tactic to gin up legal proceedings against conservatives and then use the media to amplify the investigations and make the officials look guilty. These attacks are part of a

It has been the talk of the Poconos, and at times the nation, for the past 16 days: The ambushing of state police officers at a remote barracks in Pike County and the subsequent massive manhunt for Eric Frein after police identified him as the shooter. As of 10 p.m. Saturday, Frein, 31, of Canadensis, is still on the loose, and the search has not only brought national attention to the Poconos, but disrupted the lives of many, but mostly those living in Price and Barrett townships, where the search has been centered for more than a week. It also has brought a sea of law enforcement into the area, with a state police official saying that

Air travelers Sunday likely can expect further delays and cancellations at Chicago airports as the Federal Aviation Administration worked to return traffic to normal this weekend after a fire Friday at the agency´s Aurora radar facility wreaked havoc on the nation´s air travel system.

Officials didn´t say when it would return to full service.

Walmart has just announced it is moving forward this October with its latest evil plan to immiserate the American people: giving lower-income Americans cut out of the banking system access to a cheap checking account. The NYT: Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, is teaming up with Green Dot, known for its prepaid payment cards, to supply checking accounts to almost anyone over 18 who passes an ID check. Daniel Eckert, senior vice president at Walmart, said on Tuesday that the accounts would be available nationwide by the end of October.

For many, the Adrian Peterson child abuse case spanning Texas to Minnesota has been tough to grasp as, up until several weeks ago, he was viewed by most people who knew anything about him as a good man, not just a great football player for the Minnesota Vikings. Compounding matters is that the charges against him have exposed a parallel universe of baby making and child rearing that most Americans don’t get to see every day. But when they do, most find it hard to fathom. It’s not irrelevant to matters at hand that Peterson has fathered at least four children with perhaps four different women, including one who’s

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
