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
On this very special Valentines Day, Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and welcomes members of the Hysteria fam Dana Schwartz and Tien Tran. We tackle the big questions: how much is a sext worth? Why aren’t millennials hooking up? Is sex in the modern era worth all the risks and downsides? Then Megan has a run-in with one of Trump world’s most irritating people. Plus, Alyssa calls in to discuss the Virginia mess, the Kavanaugh mess, and Trump’s messy Texas rally. And as always: our Hills!
We’re back, and more adamant than ever! This week, Erin is joined by Grace Parra, Kiran Deol and brand new member of the Hysteria fam Michaela Watkins to discuss the age old question: “Men: U Ok?” It turns out: not really! Plus Alyssa Mastromonaco calls in to debrief on the State of the Union and reflect on the AOC cape energy we’re bringing to 2019! And as always: the hills we’ll die on.
It’s our last episode of the year and Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and Grace Parra to take a look back on an exhausting but rewarding 2018, from the heroes who yelled at Jeff Flake in an elevator to the Laurel/Yanny debate! Plus we feature some more listeners submitted Hills, I’ll Have What She’s Having, and the group gives a cathartic ‘fuck you’ to the worst holiday, New Year’s Eve.
This week Erin is joined by Megan Gailey and Grace Parra to celebrate Penny Marshall’s legacy and NY Attorney General Barbara Underwood’s epic takedown of the Trump Foundation. Then, we ponder why the holidays bring out 1950’s gender roles. Plus, incoming chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Rep. Karen Bass stops by to discuss what happens when Democrats take over the House in mere weeks. Finally, in a very special edition of the Hills We’ll Die on, we roast some the holiday’s most beloved Christmas songs! Sorry *NSYNC.
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.
