When the cause is just, giving in and giving up is never the answer. Small victories add up over time.

CIEMR / Democrat controlled voting apparatus
« on: January 04, 2019, 07:30:12 AM »
This is just the top of the iceberg. It’s how democrats thwart the will of the majority by violating the sanctity of the right to vote. Whether that be allowing fraudulent voting or outright giving the right to vote to illegal aliens.

Share Your Recipe / Re: whats for dinner tonight
« on: January 03, 2019, 10:04:18 PM »
I made a colossal mistake tonight.

We decided it was going to be a family cooking night.  Things went wrong from the beginning as the local upscale market was out of the divers scallops so we had to audible and do shrimp.  No problem but now I figured there was not enough protein so I thought I’d get a couple of prime rib eyes to slice up and have a bit of surf and turf.  Then the oldest wanted mushroom risotto. 

I planned my menu while walking the ailed and got way too many dishes to successfully execute, especially with inexperienced people in the kitchen.

This led to a few more mistakes and ultimately the multitude of dishes meant that nothing hit the table hot.

First off, the youngest had dance practice which left me and the oldest to fend for ourselves for an hour.

We started with a cheese tray. aged gruyere, blue cheese, parm and manchego and blueberry goat cheese. Totally forgot to slice the Italian soprasotto to go with it.

had smoked Norwegian salmon with capers, minced red onion, and grated boiled egg.  Totally forgot the creme Fraiche.

Then I made prosciutto wrapped asparagus.  Prosciutto was cut so thin it almost vaporized when I was peeling it off the paper.  Took forever to get them wrapped.

I had my oldest on the risotto and she was flinging risotto all over the kitchen while she stirred.  Mushrooms, parm, everywhere and I had to stay on her constantly to understand the meaning of the word “constantly” as in stir constantly.

While all this was going on I washed and wilted fresh spinach with garlic and shallots.  That went well.

Then I had the youngest preparing the lettuce for the Caesar salad

Then I had prepped all the shrimp and was getting the EVOO and butter going int a pan while I worked on the rib eyes.  Cast iron pan, salt pepper and seared both sides and finished in the oven.

The biggest mistake was the sauce I tried to make up as I went.  Shallots, red wine, rosemary, thyme, cream in the pan drippings.  Went well until I added the Dijon and it separated.

Shrimp came out ok with a bit of shallot, garlic in the butter and EVOO.

Then made a sauce with the pan drippings and lemon zest and lemon juice and white wine.

By the time I got everything plated it was Luke warm at best.

I bit off waaay more than I could chew with rookie help in the kitchen.

What a lesson.  Can’t wait to do it again......

Oh and since I installed the cabinets before the floor, I adjusted the cabinet height by 1/2 to account for the difference.  Not that it matters since there won’t be any appliances, like a range, to worry about height issues.

Great mental exercise JR,

I would still give strong consideration to electric. Even if you go off grid it’s great to have options.  One of our criteria was accessibility.  We wanted 2-2 1/2 hour drive max so that we would be able to use it

Boxes are in. Floor is pretty level high spot was about 1/8 inch. Kreg screwed the sink cabinet to the subfloor to give a rock solid base for the sink and for the other cabinets to reference.

Gotta start working on the face frame with the rough sawn lumber.

Interesting that this plywood had some kind of up coating or something that was spattered and didn’t take stain evenly. Not a big deal since it’s all inside the cabinet but something to keep an eye on in the future should I use that type again. These things are solid as a rock.





Oh and kept up the family southern tradition. Black eyed peas

Aww man! I’m so jelly. I’ve been eyeballing that for years. They used to make a combination piece that would attach to the straight shaft trimmer but I think they got wise and realized they’d make more by making people by a whole new machine.

Carpet upstairs. Tile down. Gotta wait on the stairs to get finished and installed before I can install tile.

Carpet has to go in before stairs. Once stairs are up it will be next to impossible to get a roll of carpet upstairs.

Then stairs in and then tile.

So put the boxes together this morning and will stain them this afternoon.  One they are stained and varnished on the inside I’ll level and attach the boxes to the wall and then start to build the face frames

I really like that Kreg jig.  I’m still using biscuits and glue but the pocket screws let me complete without having to clamp and wait overnight.

I survived the trip.  So much disfunction in that house and a weak but compassionate father figure. 

Today I ripped plywood and made the box parts for the kitchen cabinets.

Since I’m in a bit of a rush (impatient) I bought a Kreg joiner. I like biscuits and glue and will use the Kreg to hold everything so I can keep building without having to clamp and wait overnight. I’ll build the boxes and get them in place and then use the rough sawn lumber to build the faces and then lastly build the drawers and doors.

Carpet gets installed Monday and rain is on the way so with all the box pieces cut I can get to making the boxes indoors out of the elements tomorrow.

Now I’m about to make flank steak fajitas
