Steak with mediocre vegetable garnish, and gravy (thankfully on the side) from powder... the Steak (entrecot/NY Strip/Strip loin) was improved over the last time I had it there...still a bit pale but flavor was good...and beer.

Friends restaurant, went to give him his birthday present & stayed for a bite.

Candies.

Specifically the grandma candy dish Strawberry wrapped & flavored ones...now, normally candy is candy but this got weird.

So it started last autumn when we were sitting around & talking shit about old people (as we are old) and i made the joke about these specific candies and how you never EVER see them for sale in any retail store, they judt appear magically to those over 65 years old.

So then my friend went on a quest, she bought some on line that got held up in customs, so returned those. then the next ones were shipped from Argentina to a friend in Belize who shipped them to us in Spain....so as a joke she gave them to me in February as a Christmas present.

But that's not the gift.

There is another person who overheard this candy journey & shortly after receiving these this person left for the US to visit family and came back with 5lbs (2.5kg)!!! and gifted them to me saying "I heard a little bird saying these were your favorites!".

Soni say thank you but then explained how the whole thing was a joke & a gag gift....when they were leaving much later that evening I again thanked them for the gift and this person said "You're welcome, even though they're not your favorite!

and all I could honestly think of was "mom?"

I mean
..Holy fuck who says that? (besides my mom).

Do you have a moment to talk about the Scarabaeinae, and how most of them eat poop?

Great advice.
I (used to) only go offroad with a buddy -mostly because my mechanic skills are shit, but also because most of the guys I used to go with bought ALL the toys and mods so they were OVERJOYED when someone like me got stuck and they had to grab thier wench, mud pads, hijack lift, bailing wire, whatever lol.

Also, one time I saw an honest to god Yank Tank (Cadillac?) in the middle of a trail in Colorado where there is no way in hell it should have been.

Half life
Haven't replayed it since it came out annnnd...just got a new steam deck and have it hooked up to the TV & controller...

Nicolas Cage film 'The Surfer' induces knee-buckling six minute standing ovation at Cannes ( beachgrit.com )

Now, let us all be honest. There has only been one surf film, ever, worth the time of an auteur and that is Bruce Brown’s seminal masterpiece The Endless Summer. Others, including Point Break, North Shore, Blue Crush are cute. Others still, including Chasing Mavericks and In God’s Hands, are so offensive as to count as...

Am chef...but most chef related movies/shows I give a pass (the Bear? who the fuck cooks an entirely new dish not tasting a bit of it along the way only to taste it after plating and then go "it's shit".... stupid ass waste of time chefs do not have) but this was just on the edge of greatness and really enjoyed it.

Throughly enjoyed it.

Just the right amount of absurdity that really highlights the industry.

Could you point out the country that hasn't committed genocide?

It's governments that commit atrocities in the name of the people, it isn't the people, and it certainly isn't some dude on a city council in another country.

Ok, so when was the last time someone was stabbed over a Nazi flag?

What is happening in Gaza is a travesty, and indeed the government of Israel is (over) reacting to an unprecedented terrorist attack by attacking civilians.

But neither the man, nor his flag are in Israel or Palestine, the dude is in the US where extremists of every type are just itching to use any excuse to commit violent acts, especially against the latest group in the spotlight (Jews are the current fad, outshines Muslims for the moment).

Instead of condoning more violence, put your efforts into ending the violence.

@The_Che_Banana@beehaw.org avatar

Good points.

(I got my news articles mixed up, there was a elderly jewish man stabbed also on my info dump this morning- so pls disregard that).

I've had the Xbox since the beginning, didn't get the last upgrade and finally sold the One to get a steam deck.

Next thing you know you'll start the day energizing your body by exposing your anus to the sun.

...no, seriously there is some dude who does this and makes videos (maybe a blog?) about it. Go ahead, turn your safe search off and look for it

Kosher salt is the best standard salt in the US (Mortons, Diamond Crystal is also acceptable).
Sea salt in the US is marked up too much to be "standard", and thus catapults it into the specialized salts (Real salt, Himalayan pink/black etc.)

However, outside the US I've used sea salt almost exclusively

Hard to answer that because basically the first part is pantry items, then some veg, then meats for entree/mains, and finally some dessert/sweets/snack. So whatever I feel like that day I'll cook.

been a chef ove 35+ years, this is the best "desert island scenario" I've come across...usually it's just 1 item forever type things...

....plus I've given it some thought over the years.
