  1. Yes, it's marinated, and nothing is frozen. My stove get's pretty hot. I'm guessing that I'm using too much meat in one go. I'll try smaller batches next time.
  2. My kid has developed his father's love for Chinese food. So I've been making a lot of it lately. Still not very good though, whatever I do, it all pretty much tastes the same. However, whenever I stir fry shredded beef, and to a lesser extent, chicken, the meat releases a lot of liquid into the wok. I have to either pour it out or move the meat to the side to let it boil off. Whatever I do, I end up with an inordinate amount of liquid in the final product. When I watch the pros do this on the Youtubes, they don't seem to get as much liquid. what am I doing wrong?
  3. I don't think I've read a book in two years. I just picked up "To Paradise," by Hanya Yanagihara. Four pages in, and it's pretty good!
  4. Bonner would like this. I don't know how to post a copy of a Tweet, but someone tweeted "Not the obituary I wanted to read today" (referring to the Julie and Julia woman), and someone responded, "Whose obituary did you want to read today," and someone else responded, "Henry Kissinger."
  5. How many hours? do you put the aromatics in cheesecloth? I find they make the beans very messy looking.
  6. Many years ago I had a kosher Indian cookbook with recipes from Bombay and Cochin. I loaned it to my boss, who said, “what a thoughtful gift!” Never saw it again.
  7. So, no instant pot? Slow cooker?
  8. Anyone bake with this? I haven’t found many options. Maybe the blocks of chocolate at Whole Foods? do people order chocolate off the internet.
  9. I was strolling around the new hood with the dog, and at the base of a big oak tree, I spied some large hen-of-the-woods mushrooms. A little past their sell-by date, but if they looked fresh, are they safe to eat? Any poison look-alikes?
  10. I now live in the suburbs. I’m picking up a used 22” Weber Smokey Mountain smoker (redundant?) tomorrow. I have to decide between the $1300 Weber gas grill (which seems to be in everyone’s backyard) and the $400 Performer. The charcoal doesn’t take significantly longer to start than the gas - the gas still needs to warm up the grill a bit. And the charcoal gets a better seat, from what I read. But i’ll have to deal with the ashes. Although i’ll sabe about $1000, which is good because I have no money left. the kid is worthless. (I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t you alrea
  11. For a suburban home, charcoal grille or gas? Convenience or flavor/cost?
  12. So, if you made a big batch of chili, taco meat or something like that, and the leftovers were sitting in the fridge for three days, and you thought it was getting to be time to toss them, can you put it on the stove and bring it back to a simmer in order to restart the clock?
  13. That’s seems to be the problem. How do I know how much power a hub sends out?
  14. I've got a Mac Mini, with 4 Thunderbolt/USB-C ports and two USB-A ports. I have a USB-A to USB-C/Thunderbolt powered hub connected to one of my USB-C ports. One of the USB-A ports is a line out to my DAC. Problem is, I have a Dell Soundbar and a Logitech Webcam, and each don't seem to work if I plug them into my hub. And I can't plug both into the computer at the same time, because I've only got one USB-A port available. Is there any reason why the Soundbar and Webcam will only work if plugged in directly? Is it that the USB-C/Thunderbolt hub is incompatible? (It seems to wo
