complicated recipes

44 posts in this topic

I made some meatballs tonight.  As they were cooking in oven for a bit I dinked around looking up some meatball recipes on line.  Holy cow!  I was intimidated just looking at the ingredient lists.  Seems to be about 15 items long, no wonder so many people don't cook.

I happened to use some venny and pork Italian sausage so I didn't have to add any seasoning but I took about a pound of meat, maybe 3/4 or less cup of cracker crumbs and an egg and a bit of milk.  It couldn't have taken 5 minutes.

If I would have followed the first recipe I looked up I would have been at it for 20 minutes and would have had to look at the recipe 12 times.  It doesn't have to be that hard is what I'm saying.

Just pretend you're making meatloaf...dump your meat (did that sound right) in a big bowl, and have all your spices, Worcestershire, eggs, condiments, etc, uncapped, uncorked, chopped, and lined up in front of the bowl, and throw in one at a time while kneading. Roll the meatballs. Should be able to do it all in 10 mns easy.......

I envision a Smurf standing on the ice and casting until his fingers are bloody.  Every once in a while changing lures until he decides trolling may be the ticket for the day.  He's got a blue stringer and a big landing net that never gets used either.  At the end of the day he pulls the dresser drawer out and hops in and gets a good nights rest to do it all again the next day.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
