Inspired by a thread on another forum I'm on, announce anything you wish (as long as it is within forum rules! ); no matter how minor, insignificant or pointless.

I'll start. Today I had an ever so healthy dinner of tortilla chips and salsa.

    Speaking of food, they just opened a Wholefoods market in my neighborhood. My cost of living just increased substantially. :orange:

    I love Whole Foods. Their prepared foods section is the best expensive faux health food ever. McDonald's with a hefty price tag. Ooooh yeah.

    Sure it does-- I'm putting only a wee bit in.

    My first thought was "Oh, I can bake some chicken" and then I remembered I've gone vegetarian. Its the first time I've had that sort of automatic thought since February. haha

    "Excuse me ma'am, but the chef doesn't know what you mean by wanting your steak 'blue'.... Could you let him know?"

    If anyone here is into steak, and would like to know how to 'test' meat for how well it's done (or otherwise) while cooking, here is - quite literally - the 'rule of thumb'.

    In every case, you "test" the thumb-pad on your palm, with the opposite index-finger:

    Assuming you use the left hand:

    Tip of thumb to tip of index finger: - Blue.
    Tip of thumb to tip of middle finger: - rare
    Tip of thumb to tip of ring finger: - medium
    Tip of thumb to tip of little finger: - well done.

    NOTE: There is NO SUCH THING as 'medium-rare'. It's impossible to cook a steak 'medium-rare', The 'gap' (between 'medium' and 'rare') is too narrow to get right.

    [There's a distinct overlap into the 'Diet and Habits' forum here, but....oh well....:D ]
