Today’s featured special: Gefilte Fish Fluff with Horseradish Mousse.

Ah, Memorial Day. It’s just before dawn at Howdygram headquarters. For the past 45 minutes I’ve been sitting here fantasizing about my new Cuisinart Smart Stick immersion blender and all the exciting crap I can make with it. The recipe booklet that came with the appliance was seriously uninspiring — Curried Cauliflower Soup? — so I’m thinking I’ll just adapt a few of my own world-famous creations, such as Cream of Pickles & Biscuits, Pureed Stupid Soup and Gefilte Fish Fluff with Horseradish Mousse. Am I making you hungry, or what?

Yesterday between naps Sam and I had a chance to watch Hell Below (1933), an amazing World War I submarine drama starring Robert Montgomery, Madge Evans, Walter Huston and Robert Young.
We had seen this movie once before but were impressed all over again by the great cast and first-rate performances. And considering this was made half a century before the dawn of computer-generated ANYTHING, you also get some unexpected special effects. Hell Below is a Howdygram all-time favorite, people. You should keep an eye out for it on TCM.

Maybe I’ll go back to bed. I’m cold, it’s too early to eat things and I think it might be fun to annoy Sam for a while. Shalom, y’all.
