Off the www, but my point was grilled onions are great if put with an entree!

i agree that looked great.  specifically, i was thinking about those that want grilled onions over raw onions on a burger or hot dog or sandwich. I like the taste of onions and i think there is more flavor in a raw onion.

Cool and it makes a difference and changes everything about a burger. Like a patty melt with sauteed or grilled, but a regular cheeseburger, with lettuce and tomato... sliced red onion is very good.

Got me thinking about driving out of town for a Hardees soon. They left Charlotte decades ago but are all around the outskirts of town. That's an hour or more to get one of thier burgers.... don't do it very often any more. Can get a $$ one towards the "proper" zip-codes much closer by!

Kroger just started carryintg Tillamook here in Ohio @Wolfbane.  Used a dollar off coupon for some of their ice cream.  Not too shabby but definitely not worth their normal price.  Now I see they have their cheese line too.  No coupon so no tryee!  lol  Seems like a haul coming here from the Northwest.  Wonder if they'll stock it or not.  The ice cream was pretty good though just pricey.

Best to get their aged white cheddar if you ever try their Cheddar Cheese. I can’t abide orange dye in cheese but it seems quite common in North America. The aged white cheddar that WSU sells is even better. It comes vacuum packed in a can that requires an opener. The can being a holdover from WWII, also let’s you age it for decades as long as you keep the can unopened during that time.

Small world. The kabobs pictured below are from lunch here today. We had the first batch here on Sunday so these were the leftovers. Originals on my Lodge made Japanese Hibachi and Mesquite Lump Charcoal. Reheated on the wife's electric BBQ in aluminum foil:

Cougar Gold is terrific.

 

Got some ten plus old to four years old in the basement fridge. Even better as it ages beyond the two years they can it at.

Nice, makes me think coffee isn't enough this morning! 

That's the way I like to do it. Make more than I need and enjoy the leftovers. Cook less, eat more!

Hi All

car people

I have a Q

 

How much difference in tire pressure to ambient temp?

Yesterday, wife head off to work, at 7AM, 40`.  Tire pressure idiot light comes on. She parks it and gets a ride with a co-worker.  I get to it around 10AM, 80`.  Put the gauge on all tires ... 32psi.  33 is recommended. So, I did not add any. This AM, I checked them .... 23 - 24psi. Brought them up to "cold" spec.

 Brings another Q

What constitutes a cold tire?

Typically, after a vehicle sits for a couple of hours you can read cold tire pressure.  In extreme conditions, it would be more time but all tires should be adjusted to cold temps and that adjustment needs to be done seasonally.  Do not trust your average shop to do this, typically they will adjust to cold temp pressures when the tire is heated and FIU.

I know there are people here that know these things.

You are way overthinking this, but now there's a chart to follow.  You should check your pressures regularly when they are cold, nothing more, nothing less and adjust accordingly.

Roughly 1 psi for every 10 degrees.

Try another gauge.  10 psi for 40 degrees doesn't seem feasible.  Can you display pressure on your dash or drivers info center?

I agree

 

I'll just air them in the AM.

 

 went to Tucson today. In and out. Time for my annual visit to the Dr.  We had a nice visit and made an appt for next year.  She's the only Dr I see with any regularity.... if you can call once a year "regularly"

 

  Tossed a batch of spaghetti sauce on and went into neutral for a few minutes.  Couldn't relax, though. A friend had surgery for a bowel blockage today. The same one that has cancer. Waiting for a phone call.

 

Success. the blockage was not cancerous either.

I just aired 'em up at 7 AM. Call that a cold tire.

I am wondering if the kamakazi deer had anything to do with the idiot light... none of the tires were low enough to [supposedly] trigger it.

the bumper is popped off it's perches on one side. Grill is toast.
