I get to "stay home" for few days... Got wife under way. Dropped her off at the airport this AM. I was proud of her. We got out of the house when I wanted... 5AM

Pick her up Tuesday.

 

  Got a bag of Mexibeans at the store, yesterday.  I'm happy

Wife is happy. They got her a big bag[10lb or more] of Basmati rice. Comes in the burlap bag.

Basmati is nice with some poultry or fish to me.

I've eaten chicken salad then broiled fish since about last Friday. Liked the chk especially with the cranberry/walnut whole wheat that was a gift last week. Needed something different...aged beef is good, well not dry aged but the sell by date was yesterday and I got that Angus for 30% less. Rainy weather is what it takes for the big 24 hour store to put the nice cuts on sale but my grill is out in the open. Not a drop today and cool and perfect for making a fire but plans were laid with the leftover shrooms from the salads. My cholesterol is always so good that I go berserk for one meal a month so I fried this strip with butter and burgundy rare-to-med.

Lindt 70% for dessert. No coffee this late today but the tea is spiked for medicinal purposes!

Yesterday's news regarding metal shavings in Taco Bell Beef was the last straw for me (first Death in the Box puts a half pound burger on their menu, then don't ensure that they cook it properly; you died quickly if you were lucky).

 

My faithful assistant was on had to supervise and ensure I had the fat content under control. So Ground Round and Ground Tri-Tip.

 

As usual I rewarded him with his high fiber dry food. But he is always optimistic that something will fall out of the sky and land in his mouth.

Wonder if it came from when they put everything in the blender before putting it in the tortilla:huh:

 

When tacohell couldn't make things look like their picture above I curtailed going there. I carried the supreme burrito back to the counter and asked what was in it because it looked like you know what. Couldn't see lettuce or cheese or sour cream or salsa or beans or beef: just gulag slop. Asked if they put it in a blender, he said yes. Asked for my money back he said no, the manager gave it back because it was impossible to tell what I was consuming.

There is real mexican food that is too easy to find around here. Like our Qdoba too!

I found good Mexican food in Indiana.

 

I applied a little acoustic treatment to the living room.  We have/had a pseudo oriental rug in the bedroom. It went to the LR. Can't really tell that there is a big difference. Wife likes it, from a decorator sense.

 

wb,

your dog's high fibre diet reminds me of an infomercial

1] "Does your dog poop too much?"

         that is just stupid. If a dog poops at all, it's too much

 

there is another infomercial

"Do you poop enough?"

 

I have a solution for folks that suffer both...  eat your dog's food and give the dog your plate.

 

  would prolly result in a premature death of the dog.

If you saw behind the scenes at any restaurant, you’d have a hard time eating out anywhere.  Our business did some work for a large mid-scale chain restaurant that just opened a new place a few weeks ago.  Walking through the kitchen you would think the place had been open for years, rather than weeks.  It will be a while before I can eat at that place.

I swear this town lives on pizza and fast food.  One Chinese restaurant (in an old gas station), a Bob Evan's, a locally owned restaurant, which is ok if you like a 30 minute (if ur lucky) wait for your food and a lil greek restaurant.  The gamut???   Mc D's, Wendy's, Tim Horton's, Taco Bell, Subway, Burger King, Arby's, 7 pizza shops (3 local) and countless gas stations w/gut truck sandwiches, a DQ and an old Drive-In w/car hops (summer only).  Seriously? 14k people?  Nah, done.  Kids suck in fast food and any other place is doing you a favor while taking your $.  If I'm South somewhere I HATE coming back here.  The difference in food and service is amazing!  END of rant!  Carry on!

Samuel Adams' 'extreme' beer contains 'ninja yeast' — and is illegal in 15 states

Samuel Adams beer illegal in 15 states due to alcohol containment w
Ad: 15 seconds

Bottoms up ... or maybe not.

Samuel Adams released a new—and limited—batch of its seasonal Utopias beer that some states are already banning from shelves. While an average beer’s alcohol by volume, or ABV, falls below 10 percent, the new release is the highest naturally fermented beer at 28 percent, according to Forbes.

Only 77 wooden casks of the “extreme barrel-aged beer” were brewed this year, which also leads to its limited availability, Fox News reported. States that are already barred from selling the brew include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont and West Virginia.

“In Utopias, you will get a beer that breaks all the rules and boundaries for beer,” Jim Koch, the co-founder and chairman of Boston Beer told CNBC. “It’s a labor of love. ... [And] it’s a fair statement to say it’s iconic.”

The custom 25.4-ounce bottle retails at $210. Previously, the brewer has distributed somewhere between 13,000 and 15,000 Utopias bottles, but it is unclear how many bottles will be distributed this year, according to Fortune.

The initial release of Utopias came in 2002 and now the beer company’s 11th release is the most “time-intensive” and “complex process” yet, according to Samuel Adams. With the latest batch, this blend of malt and hops have been “aged up to 24 years in a variety of barrels.”

“The brewers utilized several yeast strains during fermentation, including one typically reserved for champagne, and a ‘ninja yeast,’ created for its ability to survive and continue fermenting in an environment that has such a high alcohol level,” Samuel Adams’ website says.

Samuel Adams describes the taste as “deep, rich, malty, smoothness reminiscent of a vintage port, cognac or fine sherry.”

And as for food pairings, the brewer say the Utopias tastes best with clam chowder, cobb salad, fish & chips, mango-chili chicken for dinner and pineapple upsidedown cake or fruit topped bread pudding for dessert.

If I could meet Nietzsche, I'd sort him out.  That stupid idea of his has been going around for over a hundred years, but it's still stupid, and still wrong.

 

In the real world, the saying should be something like, "What doesn't kill you leaves you crippled".
