Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

Heh.  I put Tabasco on many things.  Heck, I put it on salad.

 

I find Tabasco too watery for that.  Cholula sticks to the lettuce better.

I think you'll find the venn diagram of veterans and people who eat a lot of Tabasco overlaps quite a bit.

 

My father in law says it's the only way his rations were fit to consume!  He still uses it, just not quite so much.  I think the fact that I am willing to put Tabasco on nearly anything (at least once) is one of the reasons why he puts up with my civilian nonsense!

The Potato is proof that God Loves Us.

It's one of the few foods that can provide a range of nutrients and calories to keep you going for weeks.

It can be prepared in so many different ways and also act as a compliment to so many other foods.

Potato is Very Good.

 And yet for hundreds of years they were considered borderline inedible peasant food, which is why the Irish were allowed to grow them...

 

One of these days I'm going to make one of those internet pics that shows a giant bowl of colcannon and says:

 

"                 Colcannon

 

The Irish didn't invent bacon. Or potatoes.

But bacon mashed potatoes... Yeah, that was us."

 

::D:

One of the reasons I'm glad I live in NYC. Whatever type of food I want I can get. 

 

Ugh... I really don't want to do homework...

I'm an outlier there.. Never got a taste for it, even with it on the table at every meal for 9+ years and in every mre *ever*

I mix it into the honey mustard and it sticks just fine.

You mean the WWII grenades?

 

I thought those were pineapples?

 

The American Mk 2 frag grenade and the British Mills bomb both had a scored casing to aid in fragmentation, and it made them look vaguely like a tiny pineapple. The German stielhandgranate was just a plain looking metal tube on the end of a stick which made it a bit easier to throw for distance, but also made it look like a potato masher...

When, after the better part of a decade, you remember that one of your favorite d20 designers has an image account, and you go and check it....

 

And discover that it is now filled with dozens upon dozens of pictures of her cats.... (Erica Balsley (DnDChick), if anyone was wondering - she used to have some really good d20 Call of Cthulhu material.)

 

The Auld Grump - that... is a lot of cat pictures. ::P:

Team peppers and spices, high five! 

 

My mom and brother love their Cholula sauce. I never got into the drippy vinegar pepper sauces. If I want vinegar, I'll use vinegar. If I want pepper, I'll use pepper. 

But quite often I want Both, hence the one convenient bottle of spicy, vinegar soaked goodness.

Gotta keep the internet's ratio up to the standard somehow.

 

In other news, just realized I washed my wallet in this load of clothes.  Fortunately there was no cash in it so I guess I don't have to worry about that money laundering felony.

Umm...this news article says they measured waves up to 83 feet in the hurricane today.  That’s not a storm, that’s an apocalypse. 

That's in deep water, so it's not time to panic yet.

I've ridden out Typhoons where we had water coming in at the top of the doors for the aircraft elevators.

In those instances, very glad to be on the Great Big Boat with the Flat Roof while the guys in our escort destroyers were being turned into little green men due to seasickness.

Just slid a freshly assembled casserole dish of Mac & Cheese into the oven to bake into melty goodness.

Now to check the pantry cupboard for a can of Hormel Chili to serve as a condiment.

Ooo! Good find. My part in all of this ends at 1:15 in the video when the cover for the parachutes is jettisoned.

Looked pretty nominal as far as the video continued. I wonder if the bent bits were from the jettisoned parts.

 

Fully nominal as far as I know (with the same observations as those who watched the video). The bent part comes when nearly a half ton of titanium impacts the ground, something it was never designed to do being a nominal water landing, with three tiny chutes that only help pull things off to slow it down. We saw evidence of several textbook buckling modes along the edge.

 

It is very pretty in its final state, and I wish I could share pictures of it. Darned public release processes. The previous cover is headed to the Pueblo air museum. This one would be some fantastic wall art, and I hope it makes it to display somewhere.

I like the control of messing with my ingredients list in general. If I want spicy scrambled eggs, I dump some cayenne pepper powder in it. My brother reaches for the Cholula. 

 

There are some tasty hot sauces. Just... I dunno, application of them seems odd to me, since I season food as I cook it and don't need more later. And stuff like Cholula or Tabasco or even Sriracha are too thin/in too small of bottles for salsa. I do love salsa. Mmm.

Locally, you can buy Siriacha in pints and quarts.

The others usually aren't stocked in anything larger than pint bottles.I'm currently working my way through the handy table sized 5 oz. bottle of Cholula, plus the small bottle of Arizona Hot Sauce with the amusing little black cowboy hat on top that was a gift from our kids.  Both are right next to the industrial size shaker of Taco Seasoning.

I can't add spices and seasonings with the joyous abandon I would like because Cathy can't handle really spicy foods.  So I have to add the goodies to my portions at the table.  Which is sad because of how much we both enjoy New Mexico.  She has to play 20 questions about the spicing of everything when we are there so she can actually enjoy her meals.

This.  If I spiced most dishes with as much heat as I like I would be the only one that would eat it.  And too sometimes you want the vinegary hit more obvious than cooking it in would give you.  I like the taste of the Tabasco, I'm not just adding it for the heat.

That's what using decent spices and peppers is for.

Sacrilege!! That's what peppers and spices are for!!!

 

Keeping spices fresh enough in our place is challenging enough.  Keeping a bottle of Frank's Red Hot fresh?  Simple enough, even with our murderous fridge. 

 

Also, I enjoy being a "heretic", it's nice out here on the fringes.  Don't mind the murderous rats raiding the local games stores... ::P:

Tabasco and Red Hot are peppers and spices.... <_<

 

Just a different form.

 

The Auld Grump - there used to be a local hot sauce that was made by a company that was owned and operated by teenage girls. I think it folded when they headed off for college.

 

Bingo.  They're also insanely handy if you want to create something tasty that both you and your spouse can eat, but you can add a dash or three of said sauce to make yours spicier without killing their stomach ^_^

 

... Poor hubby, can't handle spice anywhere near what I can.
