Don't you EVEN go talking to me about Santa Claus.
I don't wanna hear it. :nono:
cool site ~ thanks for sharing.
Bob, the one that drives me crazy is when some short order hash slinger is cooking my burger and leans on the grill weight. It doesn't make it cook faster, it just squeezes out all the Juice! :flame: :bash: :bash: :bash:
When my DD was 4, she hopped off Santa's lap, pulled me outside and whispered. "He's not really Santa".
I asked, "Why do you think that?"
She answered, "The hair on his arm is still black, so his beard and hair shouldn't be all grey yet."
I think she'll have a career with the FBI!
Gee whiz, Jan, you'll have to keep an eye on that one!!
That's WAY observant and cunning.
Glad she's yours. Mine are more gullible. :baby04:
There's always one in the bunch. A toddler with a totally realistic outlook. They can be very sarcastic and ruin any movie that requires a belief in the fantastic.
My second used to do stuff like this:
We would be watching A Christmas vid like "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
His running commentary:
"Raindiators (that was his word for reindeer, he was 3 yo) don't sleep in beds, Mom!"
"Raindiators don't blow their noses into tissues, Mom!"
"Raindiators don't fly!"
All this said in a scornful tone of voice with an aggrieved, suspicious expression on his adorable little face.
I just wanted to pinch him. The little old man.
Wow, that's a new one for me. Are you sure? Really?
*runs off to consult with Alton Brown (Cooking Guru and Cutie Pie)*
Don't know about alton, but Emril agrees.
How about the one about not turning over a burger until its half done.I think it does better if you flip it as soon as it will hold together or sears a little.Then i keep flipping it until it done.Seems juicer to me anyway. :shrug:
Next experiment try cooking a chuck steak on the grill long and slow.But cut off a piece when its slightly rare.Nice and tender right.Now fully cook the rest of it.It will be more tender when fully cooked.My guess is because most of the (marble looking) fat cooks out.Which leaves the meat loose.
I only buy chuck steaks now days.Taste better and more tender than the best Rib eye,or sirloin to me.
You think Alton is a cutie pie? (((shudder)))
His show's very cool though. I rarely watch TV but sometimes I catch that one when I'm lucky.
I'll ask my DH about it; he went to school for chef training, affiliated with the CIA (that's Culinary Institute of America, not the feds ) so he ought to know. Not that he ever USES anything he learned there since changing careers. :shrug: People think I'm lucky to be married to a chef. Sarcastic Ha ha ha. :grump:
I do know that my pot roasts taste better and have a better texture when I sear them in a pan before tossing 'em into the crockpot. Usually I'm in too much of a hurry or too lazy, though.
