Guacamole Onion Rings

Here’s what you will need:

3 avocados, ripe
1 lime
1 tomato, diced and drained of excess water
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 small-medium yellow onions
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups panko bread crumbs
Oil for frying


In a medium mixing bowl, mash avocados with the juice of one lime. Mix in chopped tomato, cilantro, garlic, salt, and chili powder.
Cut onion into 1/2-inch slices. Carefully separate the layers into individual rings. On a wax paper–lined tray, lay out onion rings and fill each with guacamole. Place tray in freezer until solid (about one hour).
Add flour, beaten eggs, and panko bread crumbs to three separate bowls. Remove frozen guacamole rings from freezer. Roll each first in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs. Coat once more in egg and a final time in bread crumbs.
In a large saucepan, heat oil to 350˚F (180˚C). Fry guacamole onion rings in batches until nicely browned on all sides. Place on paper towel–lined plate to drain off any excess oil. Sprinkle with salt and lime juice. Serve with sour cream.

Which Communication Style Do You Use Most?

Let's call the two primary communication styles discussed here, the Nerd and the Socialite.

The Socialite is more conscious of hierarchy. "Corrections" - without first signalling acceptance of the speaker's social rank (and/or establishing rapport) - are often seen as attempts to influence social rank.

The Nerd may be mostly oblivious to social hierarchy. To them, the game is about information. "Corrections" if believed correct are seen as a gift.

"...What it often comes down to is people with fundamentally different ... values systems assuming 'malice or stupidity' where the real explanation is values mismatch and miscommunication..."

So yesterday's exercise (exercise 3) from the book was to draw a line drawing UPSIDE DOWN. It was hard and super time consuming. I have to do two more of them as well.
I will say, it did what it was supposed to do, I honestly see things in a new light. Pictures become lines and angles and curves. I can break them apart into pieces...

So today my kids were Drawing and tracing pokemon from a book and I thought:
"Hmmmm...since things look different to me now...I wonder if I could draw one..."

And I'm gonna color it later. :)

If you're seeking the presidency but no one notices, are you still seeking the presidency? Gary Johnson was governor of New Mexico for eight years, balanced the hell out of his budgets, and climbed Mount Everest with a broken leg. You'd think that would at ...

"The Little Ones" grasps at a grim real-life scenario few games have touched: What is war, for the children who live it?

Looks like This War of Mine.

I am a woman, wife, mother, (secular) homeschooler, and my family is the most important thing to me. 

My parenting technique is mostly "free range", and my homeschooling technique is mostly "child led" (though not quite unschooling).
I respect children as people and individuals, and believe that most children are far more intelligent, capable, and wise than we (people, collectively) typically give them credit for.  

I like hiking, camping, leisurely cycling, walking, and generally being outside.

I enjoy photography, Pentax cameras, knitting, crocheting, and making beaded jewelry.

I like helping people in need, and feel a sense of personal responsibility to try to  help people directly.  

I'm interested in nutrition, sustainable living, and learning and teaching my children as much as I can about as many subjects as possible. (and finding the right rescources to help us learn the things I cannot teach)

While I understand the natural desire to label things and people, and to associate with people of like mind, I also believe that if we stop making such an effort to segregate ourselves into groups by race, religion, politics, nationality, gender, ability, etc; we may realize that we are all HUMAN and learn to respect and accept each other as such. 
If we stop fighting for special or better treatment for whatever groups we have chosen to align ourselves with, and instead we all unite to fight for EQUAL treatment and freedom for ALL people, we can make a better world than we or anyone before us has ever experienced. 

I used to think that democracy was pretty great, but as I get older and pay more attention to politics, I think more and more that democracy is the #1 way to ensure that the majority always rules the minority. The only solution I can think of for this problem is to limit government enough so that ALL people have the freedom to live the way they choose (with the caveat that some sort of reprecussions should happen for any person that harms another).
Bragging rights
I'm pretty sure I'm a genuinely good person. That seems like something to brag about considering a lot of people I come in contact with.

The laser maze was really cool. Smaller than I thought it would be, but also more fun than I expected. My teen son and I did the maze several times as a team and had a lot of fun. We'll definitely be back many more times.

We are from out of town, but stopped in the replace my husband's mod and my tank. I'm really impressed. VaporGeeks has a larger variety of mods and tanks than I have seen in any vape shop in the Phoenix area, and much better prices on them, as well. The 3 juices we got (cinn sugar cookie, vanilla cupcake, and sub ohm French vanilla) are all good, and reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to answer questions.

Dr Noble and his entire team are really wonderful. Friendly, caring, professional. They are great for adults and children. They see my whole family, and I would recommend them to anyone.

I had seen another dentist before who, after glancing at my xrays, told me I had one and only one option for getting my tooth replaced, and the option he gave me seemed really extreme. I went to a different dentist after that who referred me to Dr Cravatta. Dr Cravatta's staff was friendly, though not very chatty (which is ok), Dr Cravatta himself was REALLY helpful. Not only did he look at my xrays, but he also did some 3D imaging to see exactly how much space there would be to put an implant in for me. He then went through SEVERAL options for me to choose from, explained each one at length, explained the pros and cons between them, and listened to my opinions about which ones were best suited for me personally, and gave me his recommendation. When I made my decision he referred me to an excellent orthodontist (Dr Tipton) for the next step in the process. Dr Cravatta was professional, friendly, and obviously concerned about my comfort level and desires, as well as what options would be the most permanant, and most cost effective.
