Beer (as opposed to bread) may have been the original motivation for humans to cultivate grains.

I wonder how many times beer has saved civilization.

One of the many reasons to make food at home.
 
McDonald's kale salad has more calories, salt, and fat than a Double Big Mac

Only McDonald's could turn kale into junk food.

The kale salad with Asiago Caesar dressing and chicken has 730 calories, 53 grams of fat and 1,400 milligrams of salt.

You call that a salad? That's one of the sorriest things I've seen. All MacDonalds did was think "Kale is healthy, get the old bag at the bottom of the fridge. Also, let's add a bunch of other unneeded thinks like soggy chicken."

Around here I like to think of February as the beginning of spring, because that's when some of the trees start to flower. This almond tree is right on schedule.

Irresistible rack of lamb, h/t +Kimberly Ann Graham 
 
Herb & Dijon Crusted Lamb Lollipops

Well, more technically, this is rack of lamb but just go along with me on it.

One of my favorite "Sunday dinner" things to make! I know a lot of people are afraid of lamb. It's "too greasy" or they are afraid they won't cook it right.

Key to success? A good internal thermometer. Also, starting at a high heat (400 degrees F) and decreasing to 350 once it's halfway or so to internal temp of 160. That will get you a medium (not quite rare) finish. I like it a little rarer but not everyone does so if cooking for friends that you're not sure of, this is probably safest.

Additional photos of the process: https://goo.gl/photos/RNCHpvVVuUGdjF1j7

Step-By-Step:

1. Rinse the racks and pat dry. Sometimes there can be bone fragments from the butchering process. Rinse them off.

2. Rub bottom side of the racks with Kosher Salt. Turn racks over and paint the tops and sides with dijon mustard.

3. I use fresh rosemary, thyme and sage leaves from my yard because I happen to grow them year round. I wouldn't recommend dried. You should be able to find fresh herbs in your produce department. You've paid a fair amount for this meat. Spend a little on the fresh herbs to make it right.

4. I chop the herbs up to fine and then combine them with Kosher salt and freshly ground peppercorns. It's all kind of by feel but I'd say I used about 1/4 c. of the salt and 1 tblsp of the pepper for both these racks.

5. Insert your temperature probe from the end and running down the center of the thickest part of the meat to the center.

6. You can either grill these or roast in the oven. I usually prefer the grill but I ran out of propane (natch) shortly after starting these. No problem, in the oven at 400 they go! Reduced heat to 350 once the internal temp got to 145 or so.

7. Once the internal temp hits 160, remove from the grill or oven and REST for 10 minutes! If you don't, the juices will all run out.

8. Slice, serve, enjoy!

Last weekend's concert with +The Peninsula Symphony was particularly awesome. Combining jazz musicians with a symphony orchestra takes some careful arranging and performing, and these guys really pulled it off.
Penninsula Symphony Music Director and Conductor, Mitchell Sardou Klein explains that, “ Each time Taylor works with us to plan and perform an entire evening of symphonic/pianistic jazz it proves to be a fascinating process"

(AP) — An animal rights group wants "Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey" pulled from a weekend rodeo in St. Paul. The monkey's longtime veterinarian, Dr. Joe Cannon, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/1nPk5K7 ) Whiplash is healthy and is limber enough to handle the act.

I wish I had thought of this!
American victim of repeated cold calls decided to fight phone technology with phone technology, conceiving a brilliant - and hilarious - plan to 'hit them where it hurts - in cost of human labour'.

Introduction
I'm a software developer temporarily sidetracked into video production.  This has given me an excuse to tamper with just about everything. But I'm coming back!

I like to make stuff.  Everything is fair game.

My interests include
  • Android development
  • beekeeping
  • cycling (bicycles and motorcycles)
  • wrenching
  • cooking
  • beer making
  • soap making
  • music
  • yoga and meditation
  • holistic health and wellness
I am likely to post on just about any subject that catches my eye.  I love to laugh, and I have a weird sense of humor and can come off as irreverent.  If that's a problem then don't circle me.

If you want me to remove you from my circles, simply indicate you're not interested in engagement by making a public post and disallowing comments.

I've been going to King Wah regularly for years. This is one of treasures of Silicon Valley. The food is excellent, fresh, plentiful, and inexpensive. The decor is minimal, so if you're looking for atmosphere, you need to keep looking. They have a broad menu, but specialize in noodle dishes. The chow meins come in 2 varieties: soft noodle, and "hong kong style" which is a thin semi-crispy wheat noodle. They are flexible, modifying a recipe is no problem. Every dish comes to you looking like it ought to be on a magazine cover. Unfortunately the CFL lighting has a green-yellow cast and none of my android phone camera photographs look very good.
