The whole time I’m thinking: “ooooh….we gots a fat bad ass here…”

I also want to see her smoothly unsnap the holster cover and pull out her weapon without a single fumble.
I suspect she doesn’t have the safety engaged, so would likely shoot herself in the process.
OTOH, maybe there are no bullets in the weapon.

when i went to college there were no ramen noodles yet
yes they were invented, but it would be years till they took off

after college, two things i swore i’d never buy again were mac and cheese and stove top stuffing (oddly, both from kraft)

i’ve been lucky ever since.

i make a pretty good mac and cheese with vegetables

and also a vegan mac and cheese that uses potatoes carrots onions shallots and cashews to make the ‘cheese’. people who have eaten it cant tell its not cheese

When I make mac and cheese from a box for my son, I like to ask if he wants to get used to the broke college student version with a can of tuna and a handful of frozen peas or green beans tossed into the mix. He doesn’t seem to think its a good idea.

I still make a one pot hotdish for myself of stovetop stuffing, canned chicken, a canned veggie and gravy. It’s not high cuisine but it’s easy, cheap and edible.

Mrs. Fish will take the noodles from several packs of ramen, cook them up with frozen vegetables, and cut up some chicken nuggets for protein. It was a quick and easy meal when we were newlyweds, and we still make it for nostalgia and because the kids love it.

I gave up on ramen when it started giving me tachycardia from all the damn msg or whatever it was they put in the spice mix. Now I just get the regular unflavored chinese mei noodles and make my own spicy broth to go with them

I also read that those noodles are coated with wax to keep them from sticking, and that wax takes your body weeks and weeks to get rid of that wax.

since i dont use ramen, if youre tossing the flavor packet, serious q:

how much different then is it from pasta or plain rice

im asking in terms of
- cost
- how long it takes to cook (rice 20-25 min or so, pasta 8-14 depending…)

cause it sounds to me like what you all end up doing to doctor it for flavor and protein it would be close

Backwoods_Sleuth  Aug 18, 2019 • 3:08:11pm

gotta say that my go-to spice mixes for all occasions since I am now an old fart who has to pay attention to shit like sodium: Kroger’s zesty herb and garlic (no salt in it), Korma (nice and citrusy for things like fish and veggies) and my overall fave for curries and such: Baharat (again, no salt in it).
We do not miss salt at all with these seasoning/spice mixes.

I’m thinking the Baharat would be a tasty change for ramen noodles, even if you add some meat/protein to it.

Can we talk about mac and cheese some more?

When I was a kid, we had the skinny blue box Kraft Mac & Cheese (what I believe Canadians call “Kraft Dinner”). A lot. Mom would sometimes throw peas and tuna into it or serve it as a side dish. It was a staple in the pantry. I don’t even know how many boxes of Mac & Cheese I cooked up as a teenager to go with fish patties or whatever “throw it in the oven and cook it” meat my mother had gotten at the store. (We kids took over the household after mom’s major nervous breakdown when I was 14. Cooked, cleaned, did the yardwork, did our own laundry. She had the car and went to the grocery store and bought stuff for us to cook.)

And Kraft in the blue box was cheap. One of my friends got accepted to the University of Chicago’s grad school but came slinking back to Austin after a semester because he was so broke his regular diet consisted of—you guessed it—Kraft Mac & Cheese.

My brother makes a killer mac and cheese. He puts different meats in it; his fresh crab mac and cheese is to die for. But he’s not a purist. He uses two kinds of Velveeta—the normal yellow Velveeta and the queso blanco. They’re designed to melt and not be an oily mess like normal cheeses. Maybe when it gets cooler I can talk him into making a pan of mac and cheese.

Trump has it in his head that he makes the rules and controls the presidential debates. He doesn’t. The Commission on Presidential Debates runs the debates.

So what do we think his excuse is going to be to avoid the debates altogether, then?
I’m guessing the terms “Fake News” and “Failing Media” are likely to be employed…..

Velveeta is a magical ingredient for mac n cheese.
You don’t need much, but it’s like a catalyst for other cheeses that don’t easily melt.

I grew up on Mac & Cheese, Hamburger Helper, lots of Tuna Fish, beans, and fried potatoes (those were all separate meals). Hamburger Helper is still a comfort food, and I will stab anyone in the leg who tries to talk down that stuff. There were three teenage kids from a barely middle class family, and my parents would feed just about any kid that would walk in the door (mostly my brother’s friends).

My mother had a thing about Velveeta. She called it plastic cheese and would not buy it. I used to go over to a neighbor lady’s house and get Velveeta sandwiches from her. (Yes, I was a weird kid, and it’s no surprise I turned into a weird adult.)

I’m an optimist by nature, but my application of the 80-20 rule on people goes like this:

80% of the people are just indifferent about anything outside of their immediate circle.
Of the remaining 20%, I think that 80% of the people are really good people; they’re the ones that bend the arc toward justice.

Of that 80%, 80% do the right thing every time they can, while 20% just go out of their way, above and beyond.

Of the original 20%, 20% of those are just bad people, and you can go further down that chain to keep finding worse and worse people. Steve Miller fits into one of those latter groups.

I’m a peanut butter junkie….all my life. When I was young, my Dad would keep an evil eye on me in case I spread too much PB on my sandwich. A small jar would have to last us at least two weeks. When I finally was living by my self, he and Mom stopped by one day. My Dad about busted his gut laughing when he discovered my 3 lb. can of PB. Since I bought it, I could have as much PB as I wanted on my sandwich.

Did I mention that raspberry jam MUST be added to make the perfect PBJ sandwich?

Even now I usually have something containing PB every day.

Also, chunky PB is the best PB.

Before there were food stamps, there was “commodities”, surplus food the government bought to support the farmers. Our school qualified for it (perhaps all did). There was a golden can, the size of a square loaf of bread, that had the most wonderful compressed beef product imaginable. The kitchen nun and her civilian helpers made really great stuff, like stews, sandwiches, and simply squares of meat out of it.

People enjoy being hateful and cruel. It’s life-affirming to conceptualize the things that bother you as threats to be righteously destroyed.

Some people don’t enjoy anything else, because they’re too dim and empathy-less to connect with other people, and too cowardly to actually work towards connection.

Which is why the engines of cruelty are always stoked by mediocre chucklefucks who form clubs where, sporulatinging in an exotic climate of all-chucklefuck “thinking” unfiltered by…common fucking sense, decency, and a hundred generations of basic observations about the world…they arrive at the position that they’re the only smart people and the only people that matter, therefore they get to be cruel and anybody that tries to stop them is the real problem with the world.

Over and over again.

Which is why about every fifty years a team of shitheads tries out the “well, we’re just being FREE THINKERS by returning, like a dog to a chewed cat turd, to the same hackneyed pseudointellectual wish-fulfillment fantasies, and it’s your job to nicely talk us down from our daring new position that most humans are fuckable meat…but you best do so nicely and not hurt our feelings, lest we decide you’re also fuckable meat.”

Basically, any time we’re talking about the Trump team, the answer to “why so shit?” is…all the above, plus a fucking ton of money from shitheads that did one profitable thing and now think they’re infallible.

re: #84 Belafon

I’m an optimist by nature, but my application of the 80-20 rule on people goes like this:

80% of the people are just indifferent about anything outside of their immediate circle.
Of the remaining 20%, I think that 80% of the people are really good people; they’re the ones that bend the arc toward justice.

Of that 80%, 80% do the right thing every time they can, while 20% just go out of their way, above and beyond.

Of the original 20%, 20% of those are just bad people, and you can go further down that chain to keep finding worse and worse people. Steve Miller fits into one of those latter groups.

He’s an auto-supremacist. Somebody had to be the best at that, and he did it. How he got stuck in that mode, I don’t know. I have no desire to look into it right now. Then he lucked into Trump’s orbit, or the Russians put him there, or something.

My dad used to make it a couple of times a year with what he called mush. Mush is a corn meal mixture (my mom made) chilled into a loaf. He’d slice them both thin and fry them. He put syrup on the mush but didn’t care if it was real maple syrup. My mom was the real syrup lover. She’d splurge every once in a while for the real deal.

Here is my recipe for Mac ‘n’ Cheese. It is easy and you will never buy the “blue box” again!

INGREDIENTS
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground mustard
pinch cayenne
2 cups milk
8 oz. shredded cheddar
2 cups elbow macaroni

Cook the elbows until al dente. Drain and place in a 3-qt Pyrex dish.
Combine the flour, salt, pepper, mustard & cayenne
In 3-qt saucepan, melt the butter. Add flour mixture & make a paste. Whisk in the milk. Bring to a boil, whisking the whole time. When mixture is bubbling & thickened, remove from stove and add the cheddar. Mix well. Pour over the cooked macaroni. Cook in microwave for 10 minutes. (Or, top with buttered breadcrumbs & bake in oven at 350 for 30 minutes.)

I poach chicken, shred while still hot, mix it with heated BBQ sauce and make a sandwich. Teddy gets poached chicken and rice.

re: #155 ckkatz

Interesting fast cheap meals discussion!

I wish that I had half the imagination and creativity of the some of the folks on the this board. For me it was, pretty much spaghetti, toasted cheese sandwiches, or bagels and soup.

On some of the hiking boards, there is discussion on using summer sausage, commercial jerky, and those single serve foil packets of spam/tuna/chicken for the protein.

The base seems to be Knorr’s pasta or rice packets.

The most creative chef I ever met was a old E7 reservist on a field exercise. She had a file of meals made from the parts of MREs. One day she collected up all the cocoa packets from everybody in the tent, with a few other packets, and came back with brownies.

Yes, it’s amazing on the creativity of some of the senior NCO’s. Sounds like your E7 was creative in a better way than many of the ones I knew.

A couple in one unit I was in, took disassembled blank rounds, overloaded one with the resulting multiple black powder charges. added some bb’s and went hunting for squirrel. Amazingly they did not get caught.

The three bottles of whisky that they hid in one of the artillery pieces and then promptly forgot… Just before a _General_ Inspection… Did not fare as well, though. That turned out to be the exact cannon which the General decided to open the breech and inspect. The nco’s were not caught, the general, the Battalion Commander, the Battery Commander, the section chief, and, I suspect, the nco’s who lost a lot of liquor, were not very happy, though.

re: #149 The Pie Overlord!

Here is my recipe for Mac ‘n’ Cheese. It is easy and you will never buy the “blue box” again!

INGREDIENTS
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground mustard
pinch cayenne
2 cups milk
8 oz. shredded cheddar
2 cups elbow macaroni

Cook the elbows until al dente. Drain and place in a 3-qt Pyrex dish.
Combine the flour, salt, pepper, mustard & cayenne
In 3-qt saucepan, melt the butter. Add flour mixture & make a paste. Whisk in the milk. Bring to a boil, whisking the whole time. When mixture is bubbling & thickened, remove from stove and add the cheddar. Mix well. Pour over the cooked macaroni. Cook in microwave for 10 minutes. (Or, top with buttered breadcrumbs & bake in oven at 350 for 30 minutes.)

This is very similar to my mom’s recipe. Her only advice was to make sure the milk was warmed before adding.

As for Spam sushi (mouse)—I was treated to it by Japanese-American students from Hawai’i when I worked at a language-emersion camp in the ’90s. That little salty taste really makes it distinct from any other sushi you’ll have. I loved it.

So real. One of our Knox units was having a fire/safety inspection and built a beautiful freshly-painted by-the-book flammable liquids house the right distance from the barracks. When the fire guy opened it, it was empty. They found the POL, and the unused paint, in the barracks dayroom.

This exactly.

I sometimes wondered about the thought processes of some folks. Their hearts were in the right spot. Their heads, though…

Like the E-2 who signed out his quarter ton from the motor pool, and drove his spot in the convoy, making three sharp left turns to get there. Only to realize that the steering wheel was still chained to the floorboard. Really nice guy, but…

Or the morning after the winter FTX (Field Training Exercise), when a E-2 came up to me to complain that he ‘did not have’ a sleeping bag during the ftx. Rather than point out that it would have been a bit more useful to know this information at the beginning of the exercise rather than the end, I promised to talk to his sargeant. The discussion quickly went to when it had dawned upon the aforementioned soldier that he was supposed to have a sleeping bag.

I went to a private college in Georgia where the students would take their trays from the cafeteria to eat outside on the steps of the cafeteria and then leave them there. I complained about it, and the answer was the same: ‘my tuition and fees pays the staff to clean up after me.’ Needless to say, the staff was mostly black. Miller went to a similar, though slightly more highly ranked school, in the south.

He and Kudlow looked like fools, and MSNBC (AM Joy) had some jackass named Jason Johnson who got all butthurt because I grew up poor in a north Texas trailer court and never ever benefited from white privilege and he was in no way racist how dare you.
