  2. I'll be closing reservations this Sunday at midnight. Please spread the word so we don't miss anyone. But at that point I"ll have to lock down the dinner and facility needs. Thanks.

    Best First Cookbook

    The best FIRST all-around cookbook!? I'm going to go with "The Wise Encyclopedia of Cookery: One of the World's Most Definitive Reference Books on Food and Cooking." ~1,300 pages.
  8. Also, go listen to Hannah Gadsby. Mabye the joke is not just for you anymore. Maybe it should be on you for a change. What are jokes these days? Nobody knows, especially not men. Am I right, fellows? 🙂
  9. I'm never sure about the 'nature' side of humans, we do seem to be able to be nurtured and taught. So I hope we don't hide behind some kind of belief of natural cruelty or insensitivity, especially when it only suits our own interests. I was taught to think before speaking and to walk a mile before criticizing. I made a joke a few years back about The Golf Channel. I was speaking to a bunch of mostly white male and middle-aged golfers and said something about how golf must make you impotent because of all the Erectile Dysfunction ads on that station. I thought it was a bit of simple humour, but many of the men who heard me say it were extremely angry and defensive. They didn't like it at all. But I don't think they ever connected it to their comments about women and their hormones and all those tired jokes.

    Nothing hurts when it's frozen solid!

    Ice Cream!

    I noticed today that my strawberry plants are flowering.
  12. My brother died due to an accidental opioid OD. If a week later, I was grocery shopping and say “Percocet Pie” or Heroin Hash”, I would have LOST it. Now I’d be fine. But why even skirt the line here?

    Political Correctness at the Milk Bar

    No one is forcing anyone to buy Tosi's product. If you are personally offended, don't buy. Simple. No need to make a huge fuss over it. Last time I checked, it was ok to be individuals with personal opinions on things and no one could sue the cement for falling on it and scraping their knees. Life is just too sweet to live it that way.

    Ice Cream!

    In reference to the strawberries, I find most all the strawberries in my markets, Florida or from California are tasteless.

    Dinner 2019

    Easter dinner on the patio (finally warm enough...just) Deviled eggs Potato salad with ramps Roast veg Smoked pork tenderloin with savory lingonberry sauce
  21. I will reuse oil that has been used for fries only. And just once or twice before disposing of it. I can dispose of cooking in in a milk carton in with out weekly "organics/compost" pick up.

    Dinner 2019

    @TdeV, I don't do anything special. I shape the dough loosely into a ball and flatten. I have a board well floured and I oil my hands with olive oil and stretch initially from underneath the dough using my knuckles. I stretch until it resists, and then I let it rest for 10 minutes for the dough to relax. I oil my hands again and then just start to push out on the dough to stretch it further, letting it rest as needed. Once the centre is thin enough, I start to pull gently and stretch from the edge out. I hope that makes sense. The secret is letting the dough rest between stretches. When it is relaxed it stretches much easier.
