    Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

    I was lucky enough to have received my dim sum training from Chinese friends. I remember an occasion back in the very early '80s probably, when LA's Chinatown still had more dim sum places than the San Gabriel Valley and the bill was still figured by counting up the plates. A Caucasian couple was seated within earshot and were clearly unfamiliar with the offerings so they asked the server what they were. She lifted the lid from the first stack of steamers on her cart and tilted one so they could see the contents and shouted, "MEAT INSIDE!" She did the same with her next stack, a completely different item, and again loudly intoned, "MEAT INSIDE!" and yes, she said the same thing a third time for her last offering. I can't remember what the items were but I think one was shrimp, one pork and maybe something with chicken. Those diners could certainly have used that field guide!

    Appealng as always. Maldive fish flakes sound interesting mixed with the coconut. The coconut is on my shopping list. Will probably just get tiny drried Mexican shrimp as they are cheap and pack some flavor. The rains made the nasturtiumms go wild so I think them an interesting green (+ flower) to treat like that.

    Has anyone purchased beef tallow online? I've been looking at it on Amazon and found some companies brag about no flavoring in the tallow and others brag about the beefy flavor in their product. So it's a little confusing. I hope someone has a trusted online source that's not too pricey.

    No, the stove isn't induction. It's just a solid-surface electric. That's just a hot pad lying next to the stove. I have a dark granite block I'll likely sit there.

    The KA is one thing I intend to leave on the counter, if possible. It's too danged heavy to move back and forth. But yes, those cabinets are large enough to store if it I decide I need to do that. I once had the KA on a sturdy rolling cart I kept in a closet. It's occurred to me to go back to that idea. Bottom shelf of cart serves well for baking supplies, etc.

    Are fresh pancakes available at the market or do you make them?

    there was this one theory by historians that we moved from a hunter-gatherer society to a grain based agricultural one because humans wanted to grow grain to make beer so that's why we settled down to farming and civilization happened beer gave rise to our civilization and that without beer we would all be nomadic barbarian hordes

    Ok, if we're going to get technical: There is an American IPA style and it doesn't necessarily have to use "American" hops - but they typically do. British IPA, back in the days when it was shipped round the horn in wooden barrels and taking months with no refrigeration, was aggressively hopped at the brewery, knowing that by the time it made it to India the hops would have mellowed significantly - resulting in a taste that was like the regular pale ale from home. In modern times we don't have to worry about that, but American brewers started using recipes similar to the old ones, but drinking the beer fresh. Originally British hops were used in an attempt to recreate the British style, but the beer was very hoppy. But people liked it that way, eventually leading to experimentation with domestic hop varieties, and for some of us, even more aggressive hopping. Hence the aggressive hop profile of modern IPAs.

    Looks like they have a Kitchenaid mixer on that counter and below it looks like cupboards large enough to store one. We had a big/deep drawer made below our counter so I could lower the mixer down into it when not in use.

    I actually have my very own fainting couch! (They have two!) It IS lower. I had not thought of it as an advantage in kneading/rolling dough, but it certainly would be. I was more or less thinking of that area of cabinet as a baking center, anyway.... I expect that Jonesboro, Arkansas, is a bit outside your commute area. Housing values are da bomb, though. 2,500 SF, 1-acre lot, nice neighborhood, about 250K.

    it's beautiful i've been saving for a house too but the ones I can afford in a nice neighborhood close enough to work are not good looking i guess we'll see i always thought houses farther away from the major metropolitan areas would cost less with better value errr...if the house you purchased is close to the NJ - NYC area and within affordability please message me for tips on areas to look at- e.g., Rutherford etc.

    Not so different. Of course America uses American hops, so it's a (slight) variation. It doesn't mean America invented it.

    Dinner 2019

    thanks for the info I always assumed the IPA was beer named after the British one (for marketing purposes) and the two are different - with American hops being the distinctive and defining character profile of the IPA

    Tonight I did a bunch of duck wraps. It's hot here, so minimal cooking. Minimal eating. Stir fried marinated duck. Bean Sprouts, Scallions, Cordycep militaris. Yellow Sriracha sauce. Several were had. In fact, I lost count. Scrap the minimal eating. Minimal ingredients.

    Very nice. Congratulations and have fun. See if you can talk the seller out of taking the fainting couch.

    Very nice. I am looking at the counter top to the left of the stove. It appears to be at a lower height than the standard 36.5 inch. I have a counter top area that is 34.5 inches specifically for making dough. The lower height makes it much easier to knead and roll out doughs.
