      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Get some white rice from the store, wash the amount you want to bake. By that I mean run water over it til the water is clear, it will be cloudy for a few rinses. After that cover the rice withwater about 1/2 inch over the top of the rice. Then add whatever you want, I use some chicken boullion cube and throw in onions, peppers, whatever to spice it up. Cover with tin foil and bake for about 45 min. or til the water is gone thoughout the rice. See if that helps any.

Authentic Mexican rice

1 cup quality white rice-Jasmine is good

1 1/2 cup water

1 large tomato

juice of one lime

dash of cumin and/or chili powder (easy does it)

salt and pepper

Blend tomatoes and water on blender till all the same consistency

Take a 2-3 quart pan and saute the rice for a couple minutes in olive oil sturring constantly

Add the tomato/water mixture and add to the rice, add the other ingredients and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and put a paper bag over the top of the pan and put the pan lid on top of the paper bag. You want some weight on top of the bag, but not too much. Let simmer for 20 minutes. Don't lift bag at all!

When the timer is done, turn off the heat and let stand for another 20minutes. Take off the bag and stir with spoon. If the rice sticks together, put the bag back on until let sit some more until all the individual grains of rice are seperated, not sticking together.

You can serve this with fresh chopped cilantro on top, great with all mexican dishes; fajitas, burritos, tacos, etc.

Do an internet search for "Mexican Red Beans and Rice". One of my favorite dishes. If the recipe doesn't have sour cream in it, it isn't an authentic Mexican dish.

Another thing. The recipe may not call for adding sausage, but I like to cut up some spicy Italian brats and add to the mix.

you'll love it.

    • This was probably one of the most frustrating Muzzy seasons I can remember. There are lots of deer around. Cameras and tracks in the snow confirmed that. We just saw very few in the daylight. The properties we hunt do get hit pretty hard with the rifle guys, but usually with some snow/cold they will start to hit the food sources in the afternoons as the season progresses. But not this year. They would wait until about 5:30 before arriving on the food. Oh well we still had lots of fun. I will go out a few times yet with the bow. Still have a doe tag that would love to fill.
    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
