GLOB is an acronym for Gainesville’s Lunch Out Blog, an acronym that I’m hoping -- with your help -- will become a staple in the ever-continuing discussion among folks in Gainesville about “What’s for lunch?” If you don't know where to submit your comment you can include your posting below.
The GLOB encourages users to analyze, comment on and even challenge Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog articles, reviews and multimedia features.
Thanks again . . . and Bon Lunch!

With regard to the article about Making Yogurt at Home, I have two issues. 1) The author recommends heating the milk "until it steams".. This is way too arbitrary (especially if you are making the yogurt from raw milk). I recommend using a double boiler (to avoid burn on) and heat to a temperature of 165 F, then cool down to 98-100 F...prior to inoculating with the starter. Heat treatment accomplished 2 things... it kills harmful pathogens and also modifies the proteins in the milk to obtain a better gel or body/texture in the yogurt. 2) The author recommends using yogurt as a starter. Problem here is that, depending upon the age of the yogurt, the microorganisms may not be that active (or may not even be there). Also, sugars and flavors are possible inhibitors to the growth of the bacteria. I recommend obtaining a starter culture from a reputable supplier (see. http://www.newenglandcheesemaking.com) and follow their instructions on how to grow your own active starter.. You don't want to have just sour slop which doesn't have the correct bacteria ..

Speaking of National Strawberry Ice Cream Day, SweetBerries Eatery and Frozen Custard is serving Strawberry Cheesecake as today's Flavor of the Day. You haven't had ice cream until you've had frozen custard!

We went to Bangkok Square for lunch today. It was an oasis of serenity in an unlikely place, a strip plaza way out on Archer Road where Hobbyland and the second Beef O'Brady's used to be. The food was beautiful to look at and wonderful to eat, the service great,and the prices totally reasonable. I got Mussaman curry and my daughter got Pad Thai. Both were served with soup and a spring roll as an appetizer. The portions were perfect, and to top it off, we got a small tasting of homemade coconut ice cream. Delicious and divine. If I could, I'd go back tomorrow and have another type of curry.

I love what things you turn us onto GLOB Master!. I listened to your Greg Brown link and thought I might like him. I went a little further, and I found this YOUtube video -- CANNED GOODS -- . It is simply, beautifully, magically transporting. I have sent it as my Thanksgiving Holiday love wishes to my favorite friends.
If you have not heard him and this lovely tune, give yourself a few minutes treat. And Happy Thanksgiving. J
