It’s a very special Thanksgiving episode of Hysteria! This week Erin is joined by Grace Parra and Kiran Deol to finally open some of that reader mail. We answer everything from why women love pockets to what to do when your friend might be a toxic bro. Then we play your listener submitted Hills You’ll Die On and lay out the things we’re grateful for this season. Happy Hillsgiving!
We’ve got some Hysteria approved Thanksgiving recommendations!
My favorite stuffing is, of course, a Deb Perelman https://smittenkitchen.com/2007/11/roasted-stuffed-onions/
(Unfortunately, I no longer eat pork so I’ll just have to live vicariously through those who can)
Here’s a nice fall-y vegetarian side salad I like: https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/spiced-pumpkin-lentil-and-goat-cheese-salad-355212
A version of the cacio e pepe mac n cheese I’ve talked about
And another vegetarian side that isn’t exactly traditional but is very, very pretty and easy, if you have to make a side dish and you’re not sure what to make:
Quinoa-Roasted Beet Salad
1 cup prepared quinoa
2 large roasted beets, peeled & chopped
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained
5-8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (I always really hit the feta hard but if you don’t like it as much you can minimize)
¼ cup pine nuts, toasted (this is optional but it gives it a more fall flavor)
1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped (can do parsley instead if you hate cilantro)
2 Tbs mustard
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup good olive oil
Throw the first five ingredients in a big bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, oil, and a little salt & pepper. Pour over the beets, etc and toss. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
HERE’S THE BEST ONE:
What to do with the leftover turkey:
You can double the amount of tomatillos and triple the amount of jalapeños in this, not add cooking water, and just use the base of this soup as a salsa.
FAVE MUSIC TO LISTEN TO:
Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring
This week Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and Kiran Deol to discuss the dream of Nancy Pelosi as Trump’s worst nightmare, a small SCOTUS victory for Planned Parenthood, and the huge sorry the world owes to Jazmine Headley. Then, Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts stops by to talk about her inspiring fight against gun violence. And then, as always our Hills.
This week Erin is joined by Grace Parra and special guest co-host Tien Tran to investigate whether or not Kellyanne Conway and her husband are engaged in a twisted form of flirting, why Michelle Obama said S-H-I-T and how social media is destroying our self esteem… OR IS IT? Then, in the Week In Sorry, a DJ is forced to apologize after asking the best soccer player in the world to twerk. Never trust a DJ! And as always we lay out our Hills.
This week Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and Ziwe to cover the bleak election news from Mississippi, Secretary DeVos’ new proposal to protect college rapists, and Melania Trump’s very creepy themed Christmas at the White House. Then, we talk about aging gracefully into your power in Personal/Political. Note, being a Real Housewife definitely counts! Plus, Dolce & Gabbana issues an apology for being awful, and Hysteria does not accept. And as always the Hills We’ll Die On.
The election is over and we can finally relax...haha kidding we’re stuck in an endless hell cycle until probably forever or until the earth drowns itself. But, there is good news! This week, Kiran Deol and Grace Parra join Erin to bask in the still-breaking blue wave. Then, we talk public marriage proposals and the time Erin ended up on a kiss cam with her brother. Plus we resurrect I’ll Have What She’s Having, and always we have our Hills.
This week, we take a moment enjoy the sweet taste of 2018 victory before we start full steam ahead into 2020. Erin is joined by Kiran Deol and Alyssa Mastromonaco to break down everything that went down on election night, and all the firsts female candidates and voters achieved. Then, Erin talks with a very happy EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock about how women are the present and future of progressive politics. Plus, as always, our Hills!
