I'm a bit concerned though. I don't like slime.

TV will rot your brain... ::)

I saw part of You Don't Mess with the Zohan last night at work. We were almost falling out of our chairs. I've seen almost all of Sandler's flicks. Childish? Yes. Funny? Most of the time. But we like them.  :)

His more serious efforts like Spanglish impressed me.

Which leads me to the the John Tuturro. I've always considered him more of a serious type of actor. His acting in Miller's Crossing was amazing. He's shown up in several of Sandler's movies and not much else...

My concern is immersion chillers can get a bit of rough treatment from time to time. If the stainless gets scratched- say from sitting on concrete then that'll open the way for rust, which might not be apparent at first.

I know some people with fairly high paying jobs who do this sort of thing on the side. They do very well at it too. Kinda like a hobby/obsession for them and they make money to boot.

Sorry to hear about the pay cut. Hopefully it is just "temporary" but my experience is if they figure out you'll work for less then that's what they'll pay.

That's potentially contentious but as long as the bucket is HDPE food grade it's perfectly fine. Use one like this:

Good luck welcome to the AHA. Ask questions. Lots.

I can't help think of the Atocha and the Fishers. Always someone throwing a wrench in the works.

It looks to me like you should have given your friend a keg and refused the sankey. Or maybe since he lied to you quashed the deal.

My 2 cents.

Could be a simple case of poor ventilation. If you cook a lot then it's gonna be layered up on everything.

Years ago in a house with 3 room-mates we tried to diagnose a mystery stench right before a huge party. One of my friends discovered a gigantic rat dead in a trap between the fridge and stove way back under a prep table. It was completely flat. Big maggots had hollowed it out. Nose to tail the thing was easily 24". I had set the trap while drunk and forgot about it...

Once that was out of the house smell- gone! And  drank 5 gallons of 20% mead. WooHoo. Beer...

There's some legal issues involved.

I've dusted off my pH meter. Has been in storage solution for the last 7 or so months. A couple weeks ago I pulled it out to check and a bunch of slime was growing in the cap. I cleaned and tested the meter with new 7.0 solution. Read 7.4 so it got calibrated. Fine. Just checked it again and more slime. Read 7.8 but I briefly soak the cap and probe in everclear and recalibrate.

Tested it against a known solution and it is accurate.

What is this slime? I don't see anything in the bottle of storage solution which looks as clean as the day I bought it.

Quick switch-up. ;)

If anything is ethnic or regional then this has to be it.

Got this today at a Hawaiian place down the road. They greeted me with a smile and said Aloha!

So I ordered me two spam musubi to go. They were served warm wrapped in foil. There's what appears to be furikake in there. Not sure what that is but it tastes good. The spam was grilled but didn't appear to be sauced.

Found I can't take a huge bite or it ruptures out the other end- so careful bites. I was surprised to actually hear myself emitting little moans of pleasure as I ate the things. These are so good. The nori, rice and the seasoning have a very forward flavor with the spam coming through lightly in the finish...

I have all the ingredients except the furikake and finding that should be easy.

Thanks punatic I would never realized these existed!
