Re: Food

Made garlic spread the other day. Put as many cloves of garlic as would fit in a ramekin, olive oil to cover, bake at 350 for one hour. Dumped it all in a cup and used the boat motor to turn it into mush. Added some salt to taste. Yum. Next time I'll drain off some of the oil before mixing as it has...

Apropos of the sexual impropriety thread and somewhat off topic, I can’t watch Buffy reruns now without wondering which of the cast Joss was being inappropriate with.

Re: When journalism goes bad

I will say one thing in the flight attendant's defense. All of them having the same name is legit suspicious. Isn't the name on your government issued ID, now required for travel, supposed to match the name on your boarding pass? Shouldn't the system have flagged this well before boarding the plane...

Almost all new construction in the city of Houston is infill townhomes. They squeeze about 6 in on a 10K lot. Shared driveway, barely a yard. Technically single family because they aren't attached.

Re: Orange is the new President

I remain curious how anybody on the Left thinks Pence would be better for their domestic issues than Trump. Pence is a true believer, which the Donald ain't. Of course, I also see a lot of WHARGARBL about how if Trump gets impeached he takes Pence down with him in some unspecified fashion. I don't s...

Re: Rand Paul.....sigh.

Given that Brennan is no longer employed by the United States government, I'm puzzled why he has a security clearance at all. Classified information is distributed on a need to know basis and as a private citizen he doesn't need to know shit. Fucking yank it.

Amazon managed to lose my package. Can they send me another box with the exact same shit in it? No, sadly, they cannot. They can issue me a gift card and I can reorder it. It seems to me there's several steps in here that are unnecessary.

Do all of the Christmas display characters convey with the house? Those are pretty epic. So I take it that you're treating this as a scrape?

Today's run was 80+ degrees, 70% humidity, and 70+ dew point (at 6:30 am, no less). I don't know if I've ever been sweatier. I definitely didn't get any wetter by jumping in the pool afterward. Wait, I thought you were in the desert in AZ? Those numbers seem off. For Arizona, I mean. Your humidity ...

The Anova sous vide is the absolute winner for cooking steak. Seasoning goes in the bag before vacuum sealing (usually teriyaki and garlic). Freeze the steak with seasoning in the bag, throw the bag in the Anova while it heats up. Once it's hot, 1 hour at 140, pull that bad boy out and throw it in a...
