        IO:

        Drink enough Tsing Tao beer and it is all good.. My favorite is Kung Pao Shrimp-chicken or beef, Kinda spicy.. it has peanuts in it thou. General Tso's chicken is allright if you like a sweet sauce, Hot and sour soup, Shrimp fried rice. Hot saki gives me a headache. Hot tea relaxes me thou.

        Chinese food is good prepared correctly. If they are a "mass buffet" food bar it rarely is.

        This post, gotten as far off topic as the hog post.. NObody is posting recipes for me to try. If I read something I like, I try it. Evan, he posted pictures of a baked fish but no details.. See how you all are..

        OUR local chinese restruant, the lil waitress has a cute lil baby.. I never realized she was even pregnant, He is a American since he was born here. They treat me with respect and dignity when I go in there, much better than most the mexican restruants in the area. I enjoy spending my money locally with friends.
        Excuse me, I farted.

          simple food

          I bought $5 of green lipped mussels yesterday. I should have made it $10.
          this morning: Dropped them into the pressure cooker with a cup of water then on the element until the pressure just started. Then immediately into the sink, save the liquid.
          Two diced onions, 1 large tbsp Manuka honey, 1/2 cup or so of white vinegar all into a bowl. Then pour the liquid from the pressure cooker over the lot, add fresh ground black pepper and stir.
          Shuck out the mussels into the bowl, cover and let sit for a couple of hours.

          Then I rang an old mate John (70) and told him what was for lunch.
          I got a loaf of toast bread, good Kiwi butter and spent a couple of hours with a friend having a good laugh, eating mussels on fresh buttered bread and drinking fresh tea.

            I don't disagree with that, but the huge difference is that is *on topic* (or at least started out on topic)

            But you still haven't answered the basic question of why a machinist would care what another machinist's favorite (cooking) recipe is. All I can gather is you don't really, but just enjoy the banter that ensues chit chatting about it. Which is fine given the latitude this site has for OT, and now I understand.

              That is as opposed to the PM site, where six of the first ten current topics have nothing at all to do with machining?

              OT is as much a part of these sites as on topic. The difference here is that there is no one locking or removing those topics he happens to consider as off topic and leaving those that are considered as on topic.

              If no one were particularly interested in sharing their recipes, the topic would have died by itself. As it turns out, apparently, since most of us eat, the food we eat and it's preparation is of interest to many.

                Wayne02...

                Just what the War Dept been begging me to do. The wife's been after me to get some cedar boards for cooking Salmon. Did you buy them or make them? I haven't found anybody that sells them so I was going to go down to the "Big Box" and round up some Western Red Cedar and make some. They look to be about 1/4" thick? You soak them in water so I guess the Salmon basically gets steamed? I see onion, lemon, salt, pepper... Any thing else?

                Love grilled Salmon steaks marinated in Jack Daniels.

                    DT, its the nature of the Jackel to complain about something and then turn around and do the exact same thing, it is why many consider them to be a "tortured woman spirit" from the past, This is not a Joke - in native american folklore the jackel is also nicknamed "the trickster" They have very basic wireing and focus much of thier attention on trying to manipulate, Jackels are recognised very early in tribes and generally are reared by the women instead of the men leading to even more skilled manipulative qualities later in life, not to point a finger at anyone but they are generally pretty miserable people who often complain about almost everything, Once the pattern is set it will almost never be broke, For instance - in todays society of internet and such, the Jackel will complain about off topic posts, he(she) will also complain about spelling and grammar, its not uncommon for the Jackel to get upset about repetitive post also, even though everyone else knows that thier there to help newbies the Jackel forgets that it was just yesterday that he learned to use a center drill (literally)
                    He will also strike out at anyone trying to boast a product and claim that they are working for the company yet he will of course allow himself this luxury and benifit of the doubt,
                    Tricksters are more of a nuisance than anything else, they are in the same catagory as mosquitos, ticks, and horse flys and much like these simple bugs they never learn a lesson, they may stay away for a little while with a missdirected swat but they will always return untill thier demise, It is for this very reason that there has not been one reported case of a trickster reaching old age,
                    Hint; Not naming names but there is only one "person" who scores 4 for 4 of the above mentioned traits on this forum...

                    other "fun facts"
                    The Jackel made its first apearance on a memorabilia N.A. coin --- its unique in the fact that the Jackel apears on both sides of the coin...

                    Jackels rarley bath, are prone to neurosis, chronic halitosis, eczema, seborrhea, scleriyosis and generally sleep under rocks and nobody ever invites them to parties, the phrase "Dumber than a mud fence" was a term that originated from a group of scientist that had studied the Jackels behavior patterns while in captivity, The study was discontinued after a decade however for the very reason that this phrase was the only thing they had written down in a single note book and 3 out of 5 of the scientists hung themselves....

                        Since this seems to be degenerating into in-fighting, I'm going to lock it up.
