    BBQ pork shoulder was good. I think next time, instead of a plate, I'll just make sandwiches out of it.

    Okay... so that whole thing about not stir-frying with your shirt off...

    Pan searing some Ahi tonight sans shirt and set a steak down in the pan and the oil exploded out in every direction hitting me across my stomach. I didn't drop it. Wondering if it was wet as sometime water will cause hot oil to splatter.

    Hurt like a mother ****er for about 3-4 hours and now I have about 40 little welts all over my stomach.

    Luckily, no blistering and it no longer hurts so I can laugh at my dumb ***.




    The dinner was incredibly yummy although I had to hold ice packs with one hand while I ate.

    Protip: Oil the steaks, not the entire pan

    So apparently I do hockey better than the wild.

    Grilled up a hefty NY strip, some homemade steak fries, and a Surly Abrasive.

I always use the my-K-Cup filter with my own coffee. I've tried changing my cream-sugar amounts 6 different ways. I changed the grind to a several different finer settings (I grind it 2 cups at a time, so it's easy to change it up). I tried using less water, but 6 oz is the minimum, and if I have to brew coffee twice to get enough for 1 cup, is that really worth it? I can't think of any other way to try and get a stronger cup. Then problem is - I've done it with the Keurig before. But I have no idea what I did. I've changed creamers since then (they discontinued my favorite - Organic Valley vanilla half and half) and I had to go to that Natural Bliss stuff - maybe that's it? Then I noticed the Keurig 2.0 has a strength control setting. But the cheapest one is $149, and you have to replace filters, and I'd have to get a new my K-cup thingy. I think my brain is going to explode; I can't decide what to do. Is there a better single-cup option than Keurig, that is quick and requires little work, where I can use my own coffee? This is of the utmost importance. Having a great cup of coffee every day would increase my general happiness.
    Don't yell at me, since I don't even drink coffee, but my wife is a fiend for good strong coffee and believes that nothing can beat the Aeropress, available from Amazon for a mere $30.

    Re: USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    Got the new Christina Tosi cookbook from the library and was a little underwhelmed. It's a lot of recipes from regular (i.e. non-chef) people she knows, most of them non-baking, and nothing at all like the Momofuku Milk bar cookbook. Lots of stuff using packaged food or just assembling things (blue cheese and pretzels needs a recipe?) Probably wouldn't make most of the recipes. I liked reading the stories behind the recipes, but not worth a purchase for me. Not what I was expecting.

    I know this is from Cooking Light, but it's really good.

    Tacos al Pastor with Grilled Pineapple Salsa... using grilled pork tenderloin. I made a different version of Tacos al Pastor over the winter in my slow cooker that wasn't "light".... and this is WAY better.

    Re: USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    Made grilled kabobs with scallops the other night (and shrimp, red pepper and pineapple). First time grilling scallops - more oil next time. The grill was a ***** to clean.

    I finally used up all the strawberries in my freezer... just in time for the start of strawberry season. Still have blueberries, raspberries and black raspberries.. but I have more time before their season starts.

    We're having a "dessert throwdown" next week at work. I'm entering the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie Bars, aka The Most Delicious Thing I Have Ever Baked.

    I cleaned out my pantry and made a pile of all the random crap I need to use up. I should be banned from the Indian grocery store. Or they should sell smaller quantities. Chana masala and cranberry bean salad for everyone! Hurrah! What does one do with 2 cups of amchur powder and turmeric? And why did I need not one, but TWO containers of chana masala spice mix?

    I always use a grill plate on kabobs for that reason and spray it up well before putting the food on it.

    I think you're a lock for that one.

    Thanks, will look into a grill plate. I could also use one for asparagus, because it makes me sad when the little spears fall to their fiery deaths.

    I was going to go fancy for the dessert throwdown, because I've been in a French pastry mood, but decided on simple, but delicious.

    I like the plates for those kinds of foods. Just got a couple new stainless steel ones at Sam's club to replace an old one that was flaking off non-stick. I use a basket for things like shrimp and some other veggies. Much easier than dealing with the actual grill.

    I always felt like things wouldn't be "grilled" as much on a plate or in a basket, more like just cooked in a pan.

    Well, I use a perforated plate and perforated basket so the juices still drip and flame and the smoke still envelopes the food. I agree with not using a skillet or pan on the grill. It's just a surface that is easier for smaller food to cook without falling through or sticking.

    Re: USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    Quick question, if one of you can answer this tonight.

    I'm trying hard to reduce sodium as best as I can. I might attempt to make baked beans with a homemade tomato/marinara-type sauce, instead of a typical baked bean or BBQ bean recipe.

    Does this sound ridiculous? Have I lost my mind?
