Drop them in alive/closed and they pop open in about 5 minutes.  Grab a hold of the shell and pluck the meat out with a fork.

« on: December 08, 2018, 08:57:57 PM »
So tonight, i branched out a bit and flexed my culinary skills and made some cioppino.

JR with this being a dish from your gender confuzzled area, i will put this up against any and all you can recommend.

Here is the recipe link...(give me a minute and ill copy and paste it here.):

https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/cioppino-seafood-stew-with-gremolata-toasts-51248830

now let me also add that I used
- 1qt of my homemade stewed tomatoes
- 1qt of my homemade tomatoe sauce
- omitted the squid...(because that shiza is disgusting!)
- omitted the clams...(just because they didnt have any good looking ones at the seafood store)
- omitted the crab....for the pure fact that its not in season right now and its amlonst impossible to get here in a some what fresh state!
- added huge diver scallops

Ingredients

3 garlic cloves, divided
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup packed sliced fennel
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
1/2 pound cleaned squid, bodies sliced into 1/2-inch rings, tentacles halved lengthwise if large
1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup dry white wine
1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 bay leaves
1 8-ounce bottle clam juice
1 1/2 cups seafood stock or vegetable broth
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, divided
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 baguette, sliced and toasted1 pound littleneck clams, soaked in water for 1 hour
1/2 pound medium tail-on shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pound mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
1/2 pound skinless flaky white fish such as bass, halibut, hake, or cod, cut into 1-inch pieces

PREPARATION

Mince 2 of the garlic cloves. In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion, fennel, celery, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the minced garlic and red-pepper flakes. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is golden and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add squid. Cook, stirring occasionally, until squid is opaque and tender and the released juices reduce, 15 to 20 minutes. Add tomato paste and oregano and cook, stirring, 1 minute.

Add wine, raise heat to medium-high, and cook until cooking liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 7 minutes. Add tomatoes with their juice, bay leaves, clam juice, and stock. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, covered, 30 minutes. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the butter, 1 tablespoon parsley, lemon zest, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together. Cut remaining garlic clove in half and rub the cut sides on the toasts. Spread the flavored butter on the toasts.

When ready to serve, heat the pot to medium and add clams, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the shrimp and mussels. Arrange the fish on top of the stew, cover, and simmer until shellfish opens and fish and shrimp are firm and opaque, about 5 minutes more. Discard bay leaves and stir in remaining 2 tablespoons parsley.

Serve cioppino immediately in large soup bowls with gremolata toasts alongside.

is there a learning curve to it or is it as simple as set the angle according to the book with the correct strap and RPM and go to work?

if you are talking about building a swappable motor while you drive it, don't you have a high dollar built cummins just sitting there?  was that cummins not built for pure power, or am I missing something completely here?

You ever try making beef bacon? I have some beef belly in the freezer waiting for me to. Supposedly you make it the same as pork.

Jon, heres what i was told about beef bacon.

"Nate,
Yes, I make beef bacon.  The most commonly used cut is the naval plates, a cut from the belly.  Purchase with the skin removed, cure as if it were pork belly.

The fat of the naval plate is important for the flavor and for frying, just don't fry until crispy, leave flexible.  Great flavor.

Bob"

now that sounds really interesting.  I can reach out to my contact that gave me all the info on hams and the recipe that I use for the bacon and see if he has anything for beef bacon if you would like?

speaking of bacon, it is on the smoker and I even put 6 bricks of different cheese on as well.  when the cheese is done, I will vac pack it and let it sit for a month before I open and test for flavor... :grin:

I really like the SS idea but have not pulled the plug yet. Had Vivint for a few years, but service was $$$. Live and learn,,,,,,,,,,,

I think a little about hacking with wireless cameras, but not sure if I should. With wired it is easy to add a camera and not pricey.


In a real life issue where someone comes to your home with ill intent what in the large scope will the difference between WiFi vs hard line, secured self contained be? 

Will either stop someone?

I know I ran a bunch of stuff to hard wire cameras but my thought was to not need to change batteries.  My only thought was the power source.

WIFI can be hacked, there is no true encripted wifi as of yet....(read the military still does not run on WIFI, but is testing.).

a lock will only keep an honest person honest?

Honestly jon,

when i do stuff like that, i use some hormel black label bacon because its kind of in between the thick cut and the oscar meyer paper thin crap.

Now, when i do candied bacon type stuff i like to use wrights thick cut because of the consistent thickness and halfway decent flavor.

Homemade bacon is reserved for special occasions..... :beercheers:

I have not laughed years in a long time....... :beercheers:

This is a repost!

I went to Home Depot recently while not being altogether sure that course of action was a wise one.

You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a massive quantity of my patented 'you're definitely going to crap yourself' road-kill chilli. Tasty stuff, although hot to the point of being painful, which comes with a written guarantee from me that if you eat it, the next day both of your butt cheeks WILL fall off . . .

Here's the thing. I had awakened that morning, and even after two cups of coffee (and all of you know what I mean) nothing happened. No 'Watson's Movement . . . Despite the chillies swimming their way through my intestinal tract, I was unable to create the usual morning symphony referred to by my dear wife as 'thunder and lightning'.

Knowing that a time of reckoning HAD to come, yet not sure of just when, I bravely set off for Home Depot, my quest being paint and supplies to refinish the deck. Upon entering the store at first all seemed normal. I selected a cart and began pushing it about dropping items in for purchase. It wasn't until I was at the opposite end of the store from the toilets that the pain hit me.

Oh, don't look at me like you don't know what I'm talking about. I'm referring to that 'Uh, Oh, crap, gotta go' pain that always seems to hit us at the wrong time. The thing is, this pain was different. The chillies from the night before were staging a revolt. In a mad rush for freedom they bullied their way through the small intestines, forcing their way into the large intestines, and before I could take one step in the direction of the toilets which would bring sweet relief, it happened. The chillies fired a warning shot.

There I stood, alone in the paint and stain section, suddenly enveloped in a toxic cloud the likes of which has never before been recorded. I was afraid to move for fear that more of this vile odor might escape me. Slowly, oh so slowly, the pressure seemed to leave the lower part of my body, and I began to move up the aisle and out of it, just as a red aproned clerk turned the corner and asked if I needed any help.

I don't know what made me do it, but I stopped to see what his reaction would be to the toxic non-visible fog that refused to dissipate. Have you ever been TORN IN TWO DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS EMOTIONALLY?

Here's what I mean, and I'm sure some of you at least will be able to relate. I could've warned that poor clerk, but didn't. I simply watched as he walked into an invisible, and apparently indestructible, wall of odor so terrible that all he could do before gathering his senses and running, was to stand there blinking and waving his arms about his head as though trying to ward off angry bees. This, of course, made me feel terrible, but then made me laugh . . . . . . . . BIG mistake!!!!!

Here's the thing. When you laugh, it's hard to keep things 'clamped down', if you know what I mean. With each new guffaw an explosive issue burst forth from my nether region. Some were so loud and echoing that I was later told a few folks in other aisles had ducked, fearing that someone was robbing the store and firing off a shotgun. Suddenly things were no longer funny . 'It' was coming, and I raced off through the store towards the toilet, laying down a cloud the whole way, praying that I'd make it before the grand explosion took place.

Luck was on my side. Just in the nick of time I got to the john, began the inevitable 'Oh my God', floating above the toilet seat because my ass is burning SO BAD, purging. One poor fellow walked in while I was in the middle of what is the true meaning of 'Shock and Awe'. He made a gagging sound, and disgustedly said, "SON-OF-A-BITCH! DID IT SMELL THAT BAD WHEN YOU ATE IT?" then quickly left.

Once finished and I left the restroom, reacquired my partially filled cart intending to carry on with my shopping when a store employee approached me and said, 'Sir, you might want to step outside for a few minutes. It appears some prankster set off a stink bomb in the store. The manager is going to run the vent fans on high for a minute or two which ought to take care of the problem.'

My smirking of course set me off again, causing residual gases to escape me. The employee took one sniff, jumped back pulling his shirt up to cover his nose and, pointing at me in an accusing manner shouted, "IT'S YOU!" then ran off returning moments later with the manager. I was unceremoniously escorted from the premises and asked none too kindly not to return.

Home again without my supplies, I realized that there was nothing to eat but leftover chili, so I consumed two more bowls. The next day I went to shop at Lowes.

I cant say anymore about that, because we are currently in court over the matter.  Jerks claim they are going to have to re-paint the whole store.
