    New composting options

    I am wondering: That device uses electricity (1000 watts per hour). This 1000 watts per hour is additional indoor heat and moisture, which your air conditioner will need to remove using a lot more than 1000 watts of electricity. It takes a lot of material and energy to manufacture. It takes energy to transport to the store and to transport to you. It needs replaceable filters. You need to wash it once in a while. And, after the unit dies, you have to dispose the whole thing into the environment. dcarch
  2. I have participated in many cooking competitions. It took me a long time to learn why I wasn't winning. Not many people like lamb. After that, I had won a few. with pork, chicken, & beef. I have never seen BBQ lamb cooking competitions. dcarch

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    The sausages were paper-thin sliced, simmered in a skillet with a 1/2 cup of water. When the 1/2 cup of water was boiled down to 1/4 cup, a lot of the fat was rendered and the nice flavor of the sausage was in the water, which was used to braise the fish. a few teaspoons of fish sauce was added to balance the sweetness of the sausage. Ginger, garlic were added. dcarch
