Ah.


As someone who always writes unnecesarily long answers, one word answers always make me confused.

I don't know what to do for lunch today. I'm eating alone so I'm probably being lazy.


I thought naan bread pizza was my invention, but clearly not.

Our call centre supervisor is wearing a French maid outfit, with leggings underneath, which is just as well, seeing as the skirt only comes halfway down her hips.

Hum.

Not your fault.

I've got «yes» or «no» answers from James Jacobs a couple of times. I was never able to ask him to ellaborate as I was afraid to be bothering him.
I don't know how to react when I get short answers. It's a stupid thing, I know.

Does anyone know what book (or books) have cool Psychic disciplines.

I already have Occult Realms, and I'd prefer soft cover (though Horror Adventures looks cool, I just don't have the 45 bucks to spend (and I don't really care for PDFs).

I have a few strong silent types in the family. You just got to read the body language to figure out their true feelings. Obviously, that is of no help on forums. You got no choice but to continue with probing questions there.


It's not difficult when you can see the person you are talking too.
I'm a weird person. I'm very talkative but I become completely silent in big crowds and when working. My work mates think I am almost mute, my friends would like me to shut up more often.


I've got no problems with either, but I do better with text. Not that I have any particular psychological issue, I just dislike the sound of my own voice. It's true, I've heard recordings of my voice. To me, it sounds as if I'm speaking with a mouth full of pebbles.

I prefer in person (though I also don't like hearing my voice recorded) but I don't care for large crowds at all.

I love small gatherings though.

Now, I just need enough friends to constitute a small gathering. :-)


I bought new rain gear for wilderness trips last week, so I've been hoping to test it. Well, it was raining yesterday so I went out, but the place I chose only had a light mist, so I had to stay out in it for 3 hours to try and get a sense of how well it was working.

I ended up stalking some deer, a turkey and a raccoon for some bad photos (i'm not a good photographer and I was just using my phone). Needless to say I was tired when I got home. I opened up a bag of tortilla chips and a container of guacamole for a snack and it ended up just being dinner.

On the topic of ice cream, Jeni's is pretty good. I may pick some up this week to see if it's as good as I remember. The vanilla was super rich and flavorful, one of the best vanillas I've ever had.

Okay. Moving the thread topic back to food (where it belongs), what is everyone's favorite topping for ice cream?

Definitely pecans on buttery-caramel icecream


I usually like my ice cream plain but pecans are a good option indeed. Dried berries are great too. And marshmallows.

More ice cream.

Or caramel.


I just like vanilla chocolate chip or peppermint bon-bon without toppins.


No marshmallows, please.


As for ice cream flavors, I am partial to a local brand


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Cold-stone is the best Ice Cream in my area... But expensive...


I'm pretty partial to a local brand, myself. Not the flavors shown on the front webpage (I couldn't care less about the Razorbacks) but they have some pretty good flavors and special flavors in the summer like lemon ice box and key lime.

Yarnell's Ice Cream


Hudsonville is my favorite brand of ice cream. Especially Blue Moon flavor.

Reading the James Jacob thread just makes me feel real sad for JJ. Also reminds me why I have a general (not specific) dislike for the general populace.


I know what you mean.

My favorite ice cream is probably [url=https://www.fiordilatte.es]this one[url].
My father's wife also does a very good homemade ice cream. I've never tried myself.

That does look tastey

Thanks! I make too many mistakes at 6 AM.


Ate too much leftover Chicken Marengo.

Sleepy monkey is sleepy


Just having my second breakfast at job!
Red tea and whole wheat bread with shredded tomato.


Whats red tea?


Uhmmm... a variant of tea. Maybe I'm making a wrong translation again?

It's tea madurated in an oak recipient. It's good.

I'm on cup four of green tea. I just got in some delicious lemon honey to put in it. Fantastic stuff, if a bit pricey.


you translated fine. I just never had red tea nor seen it. Green and black is all I ever see.

Hmm google is telling me black tea is sometimes referred to as red tea. hmm


They are both different in this case, as in the hospital they have both black and red tea and they taste different.


I'm going to be consciously looking for a red tea now.

If you like tea I bet you'll like it. It has a slight wooden flavor.

I haven't. And I need to.
Searching for a recipe. Now.


Chocolate and habanero ice cream. Nothing else like it. Will confuse your taste buds.


Red tea's good stuff. Now I want some!


Lately I've been taking some Chai Tea. I love it.

Make meringue (with confectionery sugar), add corn syrup and tons of extra (confectionery sugar, beat until stiff, and you probably have it... oh, and a splash of vanilla...

This is a newer recipe, but having seen an older recipe, once or twice (never actually made it) it called for egg-whites instead of that gelatin.


I'd have to search for corn syrup, as it's not common, but it looks easy to do.


Corn syrup is so common in the U.S. it is scary. It is used to sweeten almost everything that is processed. I know several people that are allergic to corn, and it keeps them from eating a lot of foods here.

I have noted that they all have lost a lot of weight from cutting it from their diets. Possible connection, I think so.

No, never have. They've got to be better than the ones you get in bags.

Corn syrup is the devil. But it's darned near unavoidable.

Come to live to Spain. We live unaware of the existence of corn syrup.

Not that processed meals are better here, anyway. Palm oil and similar stuff are probably a thing everywhere.


I'm completely against the use of palm oil, because of the damage the cutting of trees in the tropical areas is ruining ecosystems and endangering many animal and plant species.

Dalindra and I avoid buying anything that has it, we are very picky about it.
It's unhealthy for us and unhealthy for nature. They burn the jungles just to be able to buy them when they are no longer protected. It's sick.

As I cook at home and you can find products without it that are not more expensive, we don't have any need to consume it.

Sunflower oil is a mostly cheap alternative that many companies in Spain are starting to use.

Olive oil is my to go cooking oil, even if it's expensive. I don't cook with much oil so it's affordable anyway. But processed products with olive oil are prohibitive.

In sweet bakery I don't use olive oil (kind of a fashion here in Spain) as it has a strong taste and I'd rather use sunflower or butter that have a softer taste and don't mask the flavors.

A lot of people don't know that The University of Pennsylvania has a course in making Ice Cream. Here it is.

It's like comparing a McDonald's burger patty to a high quality steak made just the way you like it.

edit: might be a touch overstated. But homemade marshmallows are sticky, sweet, creamy, rich and light all at the same time. They're soft from edge to edge, no crusty shell.

My favorites have some lemon juice in them, you get that tart and sweet combination and it's great. They are sticky on your fingers, but just gooey in your mouth (don't stick to teeth/gums). You have to coat them in confectioner's sugar to be able to handle them (even then, kinda sticky). I've also had champagne flavored ones, which were complex and yeasty (I like that sort of thing, not everyone does though).

I already know how to make homemade Ice cream, and I still want to take that course.
