  1. Gorgeous is the word. Plenty of space.Enviable
  2. Hey @Kerry Beal, any chance you go back to Manitoulin this summer?
  3. So India doesn't count to you? Indian products don't end up in other countries? You write off India just because? I have plenty of actual experience. And whether or not a quick google will support it, I know for a fact that some whey products have had anabolic steroid adulteration. now good bye
  4. Nevertheless there are adulterated whey products https://www.hindustantimes.com/pune-news/steroids-in-muscle-building-protein-powders-fda-pune-orders-statewide-checks/story-biEiAkl4t0a6QFEc0CYmLL.htmlhttps://www.hindustantimes.com/pune-news/steroids-in-muscle-building-protein-powders-fda-pune-orders-statewide-checks/story-biEiAkl4t0a6QFEc0CYmLL.html The fact that properly given steroids are on a protocol has nothing to do with adulterated products, which are pretty much by definition given by non-experts and not given according to a serious protocol. Why so combative? You just might be wrong...
  5. I've done some googling for you. https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/caution-bodybuilding-products-can-be-risky https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-analysis-shows-body-building-products-labeled-contain-steroid-and-steroid-substances-continue https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-issues-warning-about-body-building-products-labeled-contain-steroid-and-steroid-substances https://www.hindustantimes.com/pune-news/steroids-in-muscle-building-protein-powders-fda-pune-orders-statewide-checks/story-biEiAkl4t0a6QFEc0CYmLL.html https://www.researchgate.net/publication/266564230_Anabolic_steroids_detected_in_bodybuilding_dietary_supplements_-_A_significant_risk_to_public_health

    Andouille meatloaf with major Gray's chutney, waffle fries, salad. Photo forgotten.
  7. You never know if the writers didn't add that for drama. Look at the stink Jerry West is making over a similar thing
  8. I bet Jo was cooking it in the DW. Meatloaf ala Maytag

    @kayb I've never compared the two. My assumption, perhaps wrong, is that cooked meat will absorb less smoke than raw. Somebody must know t he answer.

    The same but different? Getting meat to a desired doneness and texture is the goal. You can do it the easy way(SV) or the hard way (BBQ). You can pretty much SV any meat (not that you should), but BBQ is pointless on tender cuts eg beef tenderloin and will wreck something like chicken breast where you have to smother it in sauce just to choke it down. I think we have been trained to like the limitations of BBQ and call over-cooked crust (bark) desirable; but if I got bark on a restaurant steak, I'd send it back. I used to BBQ quite a bit, now I tend to smoke and then SV meats

    Looks great. The bones often are more exposed by meat contraction during smoking so perhaps the lack of tenderness could be solved by a longer or hotter cook. But its easy to over cook it too. I see pastrami in your future. 🙂
  12. Cream cheese to balance t he sweetness of the cake
  13. Whey protein powders are often adulterated with anabolic steroids. Weight lifters take them. FDA has a long list of bad products. Many times they are available from seemingly reputable sources.
  14. Early veg .garden. Lettuce has been under plastic till today and is growing great. Likewise chives and sage that proved winter hardy , at least this year. Tomatoes and peppers went in today. I had started a bunch of tomatoes from seed and it looks like the wilt resistant varieties from Burpee brought wilt in with them. Shite.

    Thanks! 5 dried figs diced and cooked in about 3/4 cup water 1/4 tsp dijon, 1/4 tsp light soy, a little salt Stick blended and strained to get out seeds. Bacon on top

    Dinner 2022

    Duck with fig sauce and the first salad of the spring
  23. Paw paw are soft somewhat fibrous fruit. The taste is banana-like to me. There's no oily rind. I'm thinking that a frozen sort of drink that is blended and carries an umbrella is in order.
