*bar -> random chitchat thread <- bar*
« on: April 02, 2015, 10:10PM »
Ok what the hell does the title mean?

I actually spend most of my internet time on car forums. These tend to have many times the number members that gun forums do. There is generally a chit chat random discussion thread on each. The one forum auto locks the thread at 1000 posts In which case another forum member opens a new thread with their own title within the bar quotes. Since this is a smaller forum maybe 100 posts might be a better lock point or maybe Bob says screw off I don't like this idea. Anyway.... That's what the title means. Until Bob tells us to screw off, just post your random thoughts, jokes, links to meaningless videos, and anything that is simple and doesn't warrant its own thread here. And I hope to see someone else open the next bar thread soon without DM in the subject.

I learned how to cook typical Santo Poco food.  I have been cooking now for 2 months.  The funny thing a year ago I would had never entertained the idea.  My mom is a great cook, my wife is a great cook, so no real need to be one.  So, I was working from home and I went upstairs ready to make my trip to a fast food place.  And I had this thought.  Why don't I cook something for myself.  I then thought of youtube and I realize there is probably tons of stuff on cooking.  I was right.  I found my mom's traditional recipe to stew chicken and make rice.  I found a can of black beans and followed the recipe on the can.  All turned out delicious.  Kids got home from school and were singing "Papi is the greatest" songs while enjoying their meal.  I have never felt so proud of myself.

So I am hooked.  And cooking is now a hobby I am exploring and loving .

That's great. I'm recently starting to learn to cook as well. Besides pizza and burgers that is.... It is enjoyable and YouTube helps a ton. Stirfrys were always soggy messes for me. Now they are crisp like they should be. Heat is was the part I was missing. Im preparing for life in the country.

.. Have you ever confronted your boss with the bullshit of his way only to be told more bullshit?..  There is a moment where you know you can take a step back and get away.  But at the same time you feel the need to call him/her on it.  ...  And then you do.  You stand your ground knowing well that truth and logic are on your side.  With such a team what can go wrong.  But inevitably it does.  Trying to prove your boss  iswrong is like an American Idol contender telling JLo she can't sing and her critique carries no weight...  You just won't win that one

I had pollo guisado last week at a Dominican place.  It's become our regular Friday lunch spot at work.

Someday my mute button will fail and I'll be fired. Cursing while muted is a great stress reliever. But don't try this at home unless highly experienced.

Looks dam good. I worked much of my early days in Long Island City. Tons of good Food from Spanish diners near by. I highly miss the baked chicken with rice and beans from a place on Thomson ave by the 59th street bridge.

I saw the movie "Interstellar" with the family tonight. It kind of reminded me of the DM's first post if I understood it correctly.

Back to the cooking thing, the beauty of it is that there is no right way of doing it. A dash of this a dab of that and voila you have your own dish. Baking on the other hand is another thing. If you change anything you are usually fubar.

I am also into the single malt whiskey  thingy.  Although far from being all knowing about it, I try to buy stuff that is not too cheap but not silly expensive.  Do you guys have any preferred ones in that range? 8)

Hard liquor not into, but I enjoy the seasonal beers put out by Sam Adams. If you drink them for the season they're made for, they really seem to compliment the seasons well. I still though have a few of the Octoberfest, a favorite of mine, when I picked up 2 cases of it. Now, they already started with the Summer Ale, but until it hits above 70, it just doesn't feel right. The current ones are the Cold Snap and Escape Route. Both made for when winter is ending and Spring is starting.
