How About Discovery Apps?


I like the Untapped app. It focuses mind on pursuing a variety of beers and not stopping the exploration. I had it for a while but just starting to use it. In short time I begin to actively pursue variety in beer just because the tasting and drinking serves as a piece in a game board. I wish they had a good one for wine too. Must be casual as Foursquare and Untapped. It forces discovery AND can be great for merchants. These apps are very primitive but look cool. I guess someday they improve. Not?

I Thought Pizza Turns Round Easy (Mentioned)


I had plans to try and make pizza at home but did it by accident today. My memory served me well that I could buy the premade pizza dough balls at the grocery store but since nothing showed online I postponed that. I did find by accident packages that did the job. The only problem is when I visited Kmart they could not be found contrary to the online quantities. I did find another package by accident and gave it a try! The photos of kids playing with the pizza (on the box) made sense when I was to spread the dough. I made no effort to round it up because original pizza is cooked and cut into rectangular. This was close enough but I know what they meant. There is no way to get this pizza right which means it will be made my way regardless. I added cheese and made one with cooked chicken. I will do it again but differently.

The Evil Broth (Mention)


I had time to go by the store and picked up a few things. Cooking chicken is not a major thing and that is the point here. I cooked some chicken legs but my recipe has changed into an evil broth that is extremely healthy. Five chicken legs in water that has a ton of peppers, tomato sauce, chili mix, paprika and six limes, six habernos, five whole garlics skinned clove by clove, and one giant root of ginger skinned and sliced. Cooked for several hours leaves a delicious mixture: Meat is soft and tasty; garlic melts in your mouth; ginger is crunchy and tasty; and the broth is evil hot. I have to drink the whole thing: It is so hot it will make you cry. I will have with breakfast over a few days. Here’s to good health.

Food Management June 2011 (Mention)


There is not much that changes in Trade publications and this issue of Food Management is not different. Some articles are interesting to me as should be and many I have no opinion on. I skim and read so the 20 minutes spent was worth it.

Food Arts June 2011 (Mention)


Food Arts arrives wrapped in plastic and is such a nice publication I would not dare say they are pretentious. Everything is very sharp and neat down to the shrink wrap. June 2011 sat around for a while and it looked for the longest time the title on cover read Africa The Bountiful. I kept looking on the big cow on the cover for days thinking it is THEIR turn now. Somebody figured out Africa is good to exploit. I never thought beyond that until I ripped it open and gooood. It says America the bountiful. That was such a relief. We all know much about America being exploited and much is being done always to fight back. No need to worry a new front has opened and invaders are on the move. Business can be such an evil thing. I like the mention of Michael Bauer being wrong on declaring short ribs DOA. Bauer is big in his world of San Francisco Special Interest and his thoughts are much helped and shaped by local leftist politics. Meat lobby on the other hand recognizes not the supremacy of leftist lobby on matters of money-related. The two collided in some unknown plane and national lobby has more umph than local lobbies. The verdict: Short Ribs are not dead! They are here and GREAT. What do you know! Bauer didn’t know? I am glad the revolutionary movement has been folded. Obama was one last attempt to revive the system and is the final disaster. Revolutionary movement was strong in the failure of the system to redeem itself by granting African Americans and Hispanics citizenship in exchange for helping save the American rich from coming troubles. That was not the best solution and has been shelved. In lieu, we have the good old American reactionary response to all problems. I call it a coup d’etat for now. It is too early in recognizing its presence but when it arrives it is bye bye to leftist lobby thought machine and short rib special interest-likes. Why is it only people who know us very very very well acknowledge wholeheartedly how unbelievably effective we are at being dangerous? No foreign power would DARE to even to speak at the might that march at them (and they are in the know) but domestic trash scoff at the possibilities. Life is filled with sad events that could have been prevented. Special Interest? Power?
