I give up. What is in a Veggie Reuben?

Peach-raspberry cobbler? That sounds like a main course, if you ask me! Incredible.

Glad you are home and settling in. Hope that cake was as lovely as the cobbler.

Three ways to get the iPod to play in your vehicle:

1. Plug a male-to-male cable into the headphone jack on the iPod and the appropriate plug in your vehicle (if it's new enough and has one of these).

2. Kensington and Griffin both make kits to let the iPod play over your radio (we've got this). Works great, although you want to make sure the cable drapes around your radio as much as you can so you don't have to keep finding a clear frequency.

3. You can also get kits to plug into your cassette deck, if you've got one.

A veggie reuben is a sandwich with something like tempeh or seitan (in place of the traditional corned beef), sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island or Russian dressing, often on rye. Grilled to melt the cheese.

The cobbler was a delight.

And the cake was amazing! It looked really dense and heavy. In fact, the *flavor* was dense (dark chocolate-y) and the cake itself was fairly light.

The car has one of the plug-ins. We have an adapter. For some reason, it didn't want to work before I left. I didn't have patience, so I asked my daughter to have a go at it, but it was last minute so she didn't have much opportunity to fiddle. We got the same adapter to work with a different MP3 player last year.

I know about the radio thingies, but don't have one. I think technically we don't need it. . . .

L.M. Cunningham

Odd that it wouldn't work with the iPod. We rented a car last year when company was out and I used a standard cable on it with no problem.

That being said, I made sure the iPod was fully charged and didn't bother tinkering with trying to also plug in a ciggie-lighter thing (unlike the radio transmitter): I can see all sorts of issues cropping up with that if you've not got an iPod-specific one.

Deb Robson

Yeah. I'll play with it sometime when I have time. I don't use my iPod for music much . . . I think I'm in the minority there. I use it for calendar, contacts, notetaking. . . .

Ted

Lynn beat me to the question about the veggie reuben. I just can't see them without corned beef, though. (Kinda like how carob was marketed as tasting like chocolate. Evidently those marketing people had never tasted real chocolate.)

And you had anon4 in the music line-up. That's classical music, one way or another.

Deb Robson

Hi, Ted:

I like the sauerkraut, cheese, and dressing so much that all I need is something for body and a bit of underflavor and all is good in the reuben department.

Yeah, Anonymous 4 sort of counts as classical. More so if I'd brought another of their albums--the one I had with me was American Angels. More "traditional" than "classical."

Deb Robson

. . . oh, yes, and Gloryland, too. . . .
