Getting ready to go to Russia soon for a while for a research paper on cyber security. If you hear of a Suffolk man being detained for spying; send some cheese.
In all seriousness though, I have never been to Russia, a lotttt of admin work is having to be done before even getting a ticket, so if anyone has some advice on the country having been, preferably beyond sporting events visas, that would be fantastic.
Decent noise today, fans did the team proud for the most part. There quite literally is nothing more we can give as fans, we rallied after Mick and Hurst, and once more, the club is unable to deliver. Please don't try any more feel goods in the press room, the only feel goods we want and need are the ones that the team, staff and owner cant provide.
I have to do a dinner party soon, and much to my dismay there are children involved. I had assumed the cheese board would have been more attuned to adults while the kids would have been off somewhere being noisy and damaging my property.
However the parent has informed me the kids like babybels and I should put some on my cheeseboard. I am no monster, babybels are a midnight snack belonging hidden behind the Foie gras to keep people from seeing, not on my dinner table.
I am going to attempt the impossible and put something that tastes like babybel on the cheese board, but not the offensive little balls of deliciousness themselves. Immediately you might say, just put a bit of Edam on there, to which I reply, I have no love for Edam and do not see the similarity other than the red waxy full body Johnnie that they both reside in.
Port Salut is my decision to help provide the best of both worlds, dignity and *shudder* appeasing children. My question is, is Port Salut any good? Is it like Babybel at all? or is this going to be like the salted caramel profiteroles incident all over again, Help
I made this with chicken this week, and beef last week, and it was ruddy gorgeous, I would recommend using low-sodium soy sauce and/or use 3/4 the amount of soy and replace the other 1/4 with rice wine, either way, it comes out very similar to crispy shredded beef like that of a takeaway. The thinner you cut the meat, the crispier.
If you don't like fried items, something else you see quite often in American Chinese restaurants, but not so much here, is a pure belter of a dish called Beef and Broccoli
This is quite a saucy recipe and is super filling and decent if you're watching the calories as you can easily bulk the dish up with some move broccoli - which is gorgeous when it takes on the sauce in the florets.
In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!
I have recently invested in one of these notebooks, and have to say I have been really pleased.
In short, a Rocket Book is a 32 page reusable notebook with a companion app that upload your pages (with a phone/tablet camera and app) to upto 7 places online or to an email. With OCR (Optical Character Recognition) the app can search through your notes much like the same way as you can using Ctrl+F on a document or webpage.
Pros: - Pages wipe super easy - OCR very solid - Upload quality is good ( if captured in a good light) - Removes the hassle of having to tote around a bunch of notebooks, and organises them such as I had to - Feels very paper like in the writing
Cons: - Pretty pricey if not being used regularly - Left hand smudgeitus still applies - Wont do much for people who note take on a table/laptop in real time - Needs good light to capture and upload notes.
but of course he does, these tweets sum up my thoughts on the matter better than I ever could.
The Art of the Shutdown: 1) Generate crisis at the border, deploying troops. 2) Back out of a deal, shutting down the govt. 3) Spread lies on national TV, stoking fear. 4) Throw tantrum. 5) Ask for less funding. 6) Get nothing. 7) Declare victory.
I am noticing a rise of products flouting their 'health halo' style rollocks lately on a mass of products claiming to be Vegan, a large reason for this is because they're using Palm Oil, in fact almost everything in supermarkets now uses Palm and/or Rapeseed oil in place of butter - cost cutting and the sort.
What is the issue with Palm oil? Well, in case you didn't know, its grown in tropical climates in large amounts leading to the destruction natural habitats for animals, a few endangered species too.
Mass arable farming will have an impact on any eco-system, whether you grow corn, potatoes, beets etc. So one could argue is anything grown in bulk considered vegan - the difference with palm oil though is that it is one of the largest sourced arable products in the world and so out-of-sight out-of-mind for people, we fail to realise how much damage it does to wildlife.
