Re: Make vs Buy

I don't really follow a recipe for my BBQ sauce. I kind of wing it as I go along. But here are some good guidelines to start: 1 small can of tomato paste 1 large can of tomato sauce 1 cup of brown sugar 1/2 cup of molasses 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard 1/4 cup cider vinegar Salt to taste Pepper to tas...

Re: Make vs Buy

There are a few things that we make instead of buying. For instance: Taco seasoning Fajita seasoning Pasta sauce BBQ sauce Spice rubs Lemonade Limeade Chocolate chip cookies I am not counting full meals, which we often make from scratch. For instance, I have never had a store-bought lasagne that cou...

Re: Starting a new share some good news

Now starts the packing adventure. Good thing my old company paid professional movers to relocate us to San Antonio a couple of years ago. I watched how they did it and now I know most of their tricks. It may take us a little bit longer than the full day that it took them, but we will be able to get...

Re: Starting a new share some good news

Oh, my goodness. So much to do. I have talked (both in person and on the phone) to more people and for more time in the last four days than I have in the previous 4 months combined, I think. My voice was starting to get hoarse yesterday from all of it. Luckily, though, many of the arrangements have ...

Re: What not to do during a talk in sacrament meeting

We had a fun experience listening to a talk yesterday. It was given by a young woman in the ward who is the daughter of the current 1st Counselor in the bishopric and the former Relief Society President. Both of her parents are high school teachers. She is just about to graduate from college. These ...

Re: But I thought...

Well, if people actually did a little bit of research about everything the got all up in arms about on Facebook, then there would be far fewer silly posts for me to laugh at.

Re: Curiously inappropriate things seen at work

Both of those situations sound annoying. To be fair, though, Adam, could your boss have just been justifying why the other two guys were promoted instead of you? There was no sense of justification. He seemed to think that I would be genuinely excited that the department head hired two guys (from o...

Re: Curiously inappropriate things seen at work

I recently applied for a promotion at work (for which there were 2 open positions), and after several months of everything taking forever in the interviewing process, I was ultimately passed over while the department head hired a couple of guys he worked with 15 or 20 years ago instead. While that w...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Here's a handy trick for getting over Thai food that worked for me: Get really, headache-and-slight-nausea sick, and then have a friend who loves Thai food convince you to go out to their favorite Thai place for lunch despite how you feel. Eat some Thai food. Then go home and get a much worse headac...

Re: Brussels Sprouts. Brussels Sprouts?!?!?! Brussels Sprout

Karen, whomever the idea came from, enjoy! KMD, I have found that most dense vegetables respond very well to roasting in this way. Essentially, anything that someone on the Food Network has said would be good for grilling on a BBQ usually does really well (in my opinion, much better than on the BBQ)...

Re: Brussels Sprouts. Brussels Sprouts?!?!?! Brussels Sprout

A few years ago, I bought a bag of Brussels sprouts and a bundle of huge asparagus at Costco and roasted them in almost this exact same manner. I trimmed the sprouts and cut them in half, then I chopped the asparagus spears into pieces that were about the same size as the halved sprouts. Then I roas...

Re: The Village's Mutual Improvement Society

Yeah, 30 pounds of bacon is a LOT. It's going to last us forever.

I kind of wish I had more time every morning to actually cook breakfast. I like cereal, but waffles, eggs, and bacon makes for a much more special meal.

Re: A New Thread For Whining and General Gnashing of Teeth

Sounds like the Principal needs to get involved with the dad who can't be bothered to get his kids or have someone at home when the bus tries to drop them off. It certainly shouldn't be your responsibility to go back and forth with this guy. And if the principal can't get him to see that he is being...

Re: And now, for something completely different...

I wish we got cool, foggy mornings here. But currently in San Antonio, if it is foggy in the morning, it usually ends up being in the mid-70s as well, which makes for sweaty grossness, rather than cool, refreshing fogginess.

The teacher and the guidance counselor have both told me they are pretty sure he is not ADHD, because when it's something he's interested in, he can focus like a laser and sustain that focus over a long period of time. Just so you know, this is one of the hallmarks of ADHD. I have three brothers wh...

We're going to go up to Dallas for Conference weekend to visit Lisa's 1st cousin, once removed (I think that's the correct term for her dad's cousin, right?). I don't know if we will be there in time to listen to the Saturday Morning session, though. It's a long drive, and we have to leave early Sat...

Re: Cooking Class Help

It was good, very good flavor, but doesn't have the extremely creamy texture of Cheesecake Factory chocolate cheesecake. I don't know what to do about that. It was decent texture, just not quite perfect. I suspect the Cheesecake Factory cheats and adds a lot more fat to get it all super creamy like...
