Update: we are under 25,000 posts from 300,000.  Amazing, since we just cracked 200,000 under a year ago.

You have to eat all of YaYA's fahkes and fasolades first.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Mint jelly must be an English thing, because I don't see it anywhere else.  My favourite way to see lamb prepared is on a spit with the pan juices made into a thick brown gravy with a little olive oil, butter, garlic and basil.

You can find it in the southern US, too, though it's still not incredibly popular.

They sell mint jelly at most grocery stores here.  I always wondered who buys this stuff.  Much like the hot pepper jelly they sell beside it.

Really?  What an auspicious day - being chrismated on the feastday of one who battled poisons (St. Anastasia, the Pharmacist).  May she always bless you to combat all kinds of poisons (of the spiritual and physical kind).
