Chicken Adobo

Ok, so this is a modified version of one offered by Cooks Illustrated. We found that if you make it as they list it, there's not enough sauce! But we made some adjustments with the quantites, and this works out well. Very tasty and tangy, without being really tart. ----------- Ingredients 4 (5- to 7- ounce) bone-in chicken thighs, trimmed 1/3 cup soy sauce 1 (13 1/2-ounce) can light coconut milk 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar 8 garlic cloves, peeled 2 bay leaves 1 teaspoons pepper 1 scall

Garlic Sauce Chicken

Ok, so, not going to post the actual recipie here, but a link to where I got it. This guy has a lot of good recipies, and I'll be trying more of them as time goes on. But suffice to say, this recipie is AWESOME! Very tasty, just a hint of garlic flavor, and we had a minor argument over who got the last piece. http://cookingwithdoyle.com/index.php/garlic-sauce-chicken

Myst

I reinstalled Myst 4 last week and I've been off and on playing it. I'm at the most FRUSTRATING puzzle in the game (damn monkeys), but I've been practicing so I should be able to get it. And it got me thinking about the crappy game of Myst 5, where they really screwed up the story. You start out in Myst where you learn about Atrius and his family, and get to decide which of his sons is responsible for imprisioning him. And if you get the wrong person, it sucks but you backtrack to a previous sa

Tamago

Quck and easy, and good cold as well as warmed! I use it in my bentos sometimes. Very simplified version that most recipes you'll see, but it works good. You need: 2 eggs 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce Mix everything in a bowl, starting with beating the eggs first and getting them a little smooth before adding the sugar and soy sauce. Get everything nice and smooth and heat up a NON-STICK skillet. Melt a little butter/margerine in the pan to coat it, then pour in the egg mix

Quick Mini-Swiss Steak

This isn't a traditional Swiss Steak recipe. In fact, I found out recently while watching Good Eats that the Swiss Steak I grew up with isn't a traditional Swiss Steak recipe. But I love how this tastes, so we'll call it my version of Swiss Steak. Again, the measurements aren't exact as I learned how to do this from my mom, who's instructions were 'fill the bowl with this much' and so on, but I'll do my best. -- 1 package stir-fry strips of beef (this is something I find at my local mart,

Lasagna

This is the quick method. I use my own sauce that I make, but you can use whatever premade variety you like. --- 1 box of lasagna noodles (uncooked) 1 12 oz bag of chedder cheese 1 12 oz bag of mozzarella cheese (if you like, you can use the Italian mix that Kraft has instead, it has mozzarella, provolone and romano) 1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce Grated parmesan cheese (just get the stuff in the shaker bottle, it works great) Heat your oven to 350 degrees. While that's heating, you

Heavenly

From my mom. Awesome dessert! ------ 1st layer: 1/2 cup of soft oleo (which is another name for margerine) 1 cup flour 1 cup chopped pecans Mix together until the margerine is absorbed and the mix is crumbly. Press into a 13 X 9 pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. It won't look much different, just a little dryer, but don't go longer than 20 minutes or it'll burn! Cool down completly before adding second layer. 2nd layer: 8oz cream cheese (soft) 1 cup powdered sugar

Chicken Roll-ups

Just in case someone else wanted to try these. My measurings are very aproximate because I learned this by eye, so you may need to adjust a couple things, but nothing major. --- 1 package of boneless chicken breast (you can do as many as you want, but depends on how many you want to eat or are feeding) 1 egg 1 cup flour (aproximate, fills one large soup bowl) 1/2 cup milk (aproximate) Slices of lunch meat (i like ham, use what you want. one slice for each chicken breast) Shredded chee

Last Call

Well, I finally did it. I closed my Trigun fansite. Not completly, if I ever have something to update with, I will put it up. But that may not be for a long time, so I put a final layout up that won't change again. Man, it just really kinda sucks. This isn't as big a thing as my GW site, but it was still one of my babies! Blaurgh.

      I think I found a new web host. If all goes well I'll transfer AC over to it sometime this month. It might have slower page loads but it'll save me money and some time since I wont have to do server maintenance / troubleshooting anymore.

      And the first ceiling fan I put up is making a noise.  I'm going to have to take it back down and adjust the damn steel mounting bracket. x_x When I did the second fan I realized I could get my phone at just the right angle to see exactly where I was mounting the damn thing. I'll have to do that for the first fan now. That'll take multiple hours this weekend. x_x

      Since the founding of Kickstarter I've only backed one project and that was Kung Fury. I recently backed two more projects. A new wallet and a retro style watch.
      I honestly don't get the whole "minimalist" wallet thing. I think it's pretty dumb actually. Before this fad even started it was hard enough for me to find a wallet with enough card slots to begin with. I have a debit card, drivers licenses, concealed carry permit, Social security card, health insurance card, dental insurance card, Kohl's card, and 3 credit cards (Visa, Master, Discover). Now that everywhere takes Visa I kinda wish I didn't have all 3, but there was a time Sam's club only took discover, and my master card was my first line of credit that just got upgraded to a mastercard when it was originally just a sears card. Anyways all in all I have 12-14 cards, and I feel like I always need them in case of an emergency. I don't carry cash, so the whole billfold that only holds 1 card... I don't know how people do it. I backed this Grip6 wallet because I've been using their belts and they're amazing. I also break belts a lot since I only use 1 for everything and I'm very active at my job. If it wasn't for the leather sleeve that increases card capacity to 14, i wouldn't have bothered. It's a cool concept. I use my debit card multiple times a day. All my cards that pay for stuff will go into the pop up slot. My lesser used cards like insurance and ID will go in the leather sleeve.
      I've also reinvigorated my love for watches. I own 3 in my rotation. I've lost my love for metal bracelet watches as I always break them, and leather I ruin from sweating at my job so much. I just ordered a canvas strap to replace a leather band actually. But I also love analogue watches. I don't like pulling my phone out to look at the time, its just easier to look at my wrist. I've always had a watch since I was 14. I'll never be one of those serious watch collectors that owns $5000 watches... thats too extreme. I stay under $400. I've been looking for something retro and classy to add to my collection.. buying real vintage watches is out of the question so I found this... but its only half funded with 27 days left so It may not become a thing.
      I'll never back a kickstarter game after all the shenanigans over the past couple of years, but recently I've found it to be a good source of finding things that no one else is making to my needs. I still did my research on the company/owner before backing, but hopefully I get two decent products. With all the crazy OT I've been getting lately I have the luxury to splurge a little.

      I installed a complicated ceiling fan yesterday. The light fixture was cheap and held in place by the ceiling drywall. I had to take it out, cut a larger hole in the ceiling, install a ceiling fan support brace and electric box.. But the real bitch was there were 4 electric lines running to this light fixture as a full junction box. I had to cut and strip 12 stiff as hell wires, and run an additional 3 wires to the ceiling fan. Also stuff all the insulation back into the ceiling while gagging on the particulates of it all in the air.. and jam all those wires into the small ass box. In the end it all worked out. Took me 6 hours. wtf. The other ceiling fans I've done for Lady's mom took me around 2 1/2 hours. 6 hours was a pain. I'll have to do it again for my office room. Same thing, 4 sets of wires, ceiling fan bracket, etc. I bet I could trim 1 hour off that 6 hours tho now that I wont have to stop to search for random answers to things again.

      As much as I am enjoying this anime season with so many good shows. Friday is just incredible. Fruits Basket, Dr. Stone, and Fire Force. Pretty much 3 of my top 4 this season. (Cop Craft battling with FB for that #3 spot). All three episodes were amazing this week. Kohaku is the ultra best girl this season. 😍 As much as a lot of people hate it, I've always been a fan of the huge eyeballs, weird faces, massive mouth, anime faces for comedy as long as it's done right. Dr. Stone nails it.
