That is a huge accomplishment @kardamom! Congratulations and welcome to the 3rd floor of the mansion! Let’s get this party going. Food (mainly vegetarian) is out by the pool and drinks and music are in full swing. It’s nice having a foodie amongst us.

Since it’s a chilly day here, I’ll make this vegetarian chili for your party.

With a baked mushroom risotto on the side.

A spinach and mandarin orange salad

And for dessert, too much chocolate cake

Congratulations and enjoy the feast!

Congratulations, our house staff will serve tea & scones on the lawn in your honour.
If you’re really good chef will bake a jam roly poly, his spotted dick got burnt stood too close to the open fire.

Congratulations to one of the sweetest Jellies! Henceforth, I’ll be doing your laundry and running your errands. Perhaps someday, somebody will do the same for me. Until then, I am in service to @Kardamom.

Nicely done!

Kardamom's avatar

Thank you everyone! I had no idea until one of the lovely Jellies messaged me.

I really wish Adirondackwannabe was here.

I have done my best to be a good person, and to give thoughtful, intelligent answers, and to defend the integrity of other Jellies, even though some people would have preferred me to have evaporated into the ether.

I love this site for what it was, what it is, and what it can be.

There were some dark times that made me consider leaving, but I truly believe that my staying was good for me, the people who also stayed, and the people who had to leave, either by their own choice, being forced out, or by passing away. Some of the finest people I have ever known have been because of this site. I’m pretty sure you know who you are, those of you that are still here <3

The ones who have left (this site or this world) are never far from my mind, and are always in my heart.

All I ever wanted to do, is feed people, and present my own, unique perspective. Sometimes that has been well recieved, and other times it has been sorely rejected.

I could have left, when the mass migration left, but I wanted to stay, for them, as well for myself. This forum offers a very unique platform, and I do feel like I am very much a part of it, but it still pains me that a huge part of our population was driven off for reasons that could have been handled and resolved much better. There are still people here that won’t speak to me, because of my viewpoints regarding this subject, and for that I am saddened. All I can do at this point is to continue to do my best, to give honest answers, and try to nourish and support those Jellies who are interested in what I have to say.

Thank you to @Luckyguy for acknowledging this milestone. You have been a bright light to this site, and to me, personally. Thank you to Jeruba, for being one of our most knowlegeable elder statesmen (who was absent for far too long, so glad you came back) and to Auggie who is not around as much as I would like, but who really is the person for whom I try to strive to be more like, every single day, for whom the word integrity was invented, and for all the Jellies I have known, and loved, and laughed with, and lost (and wept over) thank you so much for being a part of my world.

Now, who is hungry, and what can I fix for you?

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Yes, sweet of you to remember Adirondackwannabe, he was one of the finest people around!

Congrats! Adirondack was a sweetie pie.

Congratulations, @Kardamom. Only good vibes are allowed in the mansion. I hope we can move on and focus on a better future.

I brought cookies for the occasion. Party on.

Love_my_doggie's avatar

^^^ Those cookies are fabulous!

Kardamom's avatar

Thank you to everyone, and thank you for coming to this party. Now have a seat. We’re going to have a feast.

This is tonight’s menu:

Spicy Chipotle Butternut Squash Soup:

Watercress, Mango, and Mint Summer Rolls with Sesame Dipping Sauce:

Potato Tacos:

Thai-style Green Papaya Salad:

Spinach and Artichoke Galette:

And for dessert Cardamom Cream Cake:

Love_my_doggie's avatar

^^^ I can’t wait to try this soup recipe. Butternut squash is perfect for this time of winter. I’ll modify the recipe to be vegan.

Yesterday, I made a HUGE batch of vegetable broth. Every few weeks or so, I use my large Cuisinart stockpot to cook about 20 cups of broth. I freeze the results in medium-size containers, to thaw for soups and sauces.

Hey…here we are at @Kardamom‘s party, discussing food. How very appropriate…
