@Onymous What a monster, creamy should be outlawed except for occasional use in cooking or baking as needed.
@Kikimora Maybe she is not properly sterilizing her equipment? A little bit of bacteria on a bottle could have no taste until it spends a month multiplying in a beer. Also if she is using any fruits in her beer, they have to have some stuff (helpful I know) added to it to prevent wild yeast from growing in it because that can also make homebrew taste gross.
@February Revolution For grilling and something that is slightly closer to a trashy hot dog, I'll recommend Smart Dogs -- they have jumbo ones, too!
The Field Roast ones are my favorite but I find them to be dry and unappetizing when grilled. Boiled, however? Amazing!
1) How do you say tour? I say "tore" and my boyfriend says "TOO-er".
2) Yessss a conversation about accents so I can share my favorite WTF accent: Tangier Island, VA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIZgw09CG9E. The hypothesis is that this accent is closest to what the colonists sounded like when they came to the US. Since it's an island and not many people move there from somewhere else, the accent has been preserved more than anywhere else.
@Jinxie I'm way late to this thread, but I made a tea-based cocktail this weekend -- jasmine tea, gin, limoncello, other stuff -- and it was really good.
@saritasara One of my coworkers, who I guess at least knows the keyboard shortcuts which is worth something, CTRL + C's by pressing CTRL with his left thumb, and then reaching his left index finger over to hit C.
@pennylaner So my friend takes Xanax when she flies because she freaks out a bit. So once she got home from a vacation, and the next morning she woke up and discovered that she had made peanut butter cookies after getting home.
The thing is, she never really bakes so she doesn't have flour or butter or anything like that in her house. She was stumped.
She didn't discover this recipe until months later, so it was a fun mystery while it lasted. She still refers to this recipe as "Xanax Cookies," which I guess could be a little misleading.
@cosmia FAVORITE MILK OOLONG RECOMMENDATION, GO. (Right now I am obsessed with DAVIDsTEA Quangzhou Milk Oolong.)
Also have any of you heard of Steepster? It is a tea social network thing I guess? But it is pretty great because it's been helping me a) keep track of my favorite steep time/temps for various teas I have (useful if I go against what's recommended on the package) and b) keep track of what teas I actually have in a virtual "tea cupboard," because man it is pretty easy to forget that stuff is there when it is buried in the back of my tea shelf.
