    What's Cooking?

    Last night we had some folks over and the plan was to make our own pasta. Well, that morphed into a pasta making demonstration. Oh boy. Well gotta roll with it, right? At the last minute, just for fun, I thought I'd make some semolina flour pasta in addition to the regular flour version. First time for semolina. Can you get a feel for where this may be going?? It was a pain in the butt. Semolina didn't come out too well -- it was too wet and wouldn't separate in the spaghetti cutter. It wasn't pretty, but everyone got fed. AP flour pasta was good. Tonight we did bow tie pasta with mushrooms in a Asiago and cream sauce. One of our favorites. Oh, and there were peas.
  2. Thanks for rendering a free legal opinion, fishinwrench, Esq. I'll print this off and carry it in my wallet.

    Love me a good bierok! Haven't made them in quite a while though. It's time. We had a Mennonite cook at the house when I was in school. She introduced a lot of us to them. On the weekend of pheasant opener in western Kansas there would be bierok dinners, usually done by older church ladies. https://www.kansas.com/entertainment/restaurants/dining-with-denise-neil/article176082361.html
  4. There are signs posted at RR crossings all over the place that say it's private property and no trespassing. from https://www.modot.org/railroads-general-information There are some tracks close to my home that I walk on all the time to get to the store. Is it against the law? Yes, it is against the law to walk on railroad tracks, and you could be arrested for trespassing. Railroad tracks and right-of-way are private property with access strictly limited to railroad personnel and persons who have been granted permission from the railroad. Anyone else on the track or grounds of the railroad is trespassing. Even though you might think that you are safe, more than 1000 people are either killed or injured each year in the United States while trespassing on railroad tracks, yards and other railroad property. For the first time, in calendar year 2004, the number of people killed while trespassing on railroad property exceeded those killed at rail/highway crossings.

    Any Good Pheasant Recipes

    Here’s one we like: Ingredients 2 boneless/skinless pheasant breasts cut into 1/2-inch pieces 2 teaspoons oil 2 tablespoons flour 1 tablespoon oil 1/4 cup white wine 2 cups chicken stock 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 small onion, diced 1 teaspoon sage 1/2 teaspoon marjoram pinch cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon soy sauce Salt and pepper Directions 1. In an oven-safe skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil to smoking point and quickly brown pheasant pieces on all sides, in batches, and set aside. 2. Remove skillet from heat and add flour and remaining oil to make a roux. Return to heat, add white wine and scrape brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Add chicken stock, garlic, onion, sage, marjoram, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Bring to a boil and thicken slightly. Add back pheasant, cover and place in a 400 degree oven for one hour.

  7. ...and another one used a lot here at the office: 'Skip ahead a little, brother.'
  8. "I think it was 'Blessed are the Cheesemakers'. I don't think it was meant to be taken literally, it referred to all manufacturers of dairy products. I think it was blessed are the meek. Oh, I'm glad they're getting something because they've had a hell of a time."
  9. We use that one here at the office a lot. Actually, a lot of movie quotes get tossed around here at the old orifice. A good buddy of mine, who I worked with for 30 years, was the master. Miss having him here. Couple others: 'You #$%^ed up, you trusted us.' 'It was on company property, with company property. So double jeopardy -- we're fine.' When we see deposit balances decline around Christmas (here at the bank) it's always because 'everybody wants to buy their son the GI Joe with the Kung Fu grip.' And when we get a margin call it's always, 'Margin call, Mr. Duke.' 'Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.'
