This week it's part 2 of the food show, with a few functional components, as promised! The boys try to figure out why cooking seems so hard.
Fake Follow Up
- Everglades Challenge Boat build-- looks like it’s going to happen.
- The boat: B&B Core Sound 20 mk3. Here is a video of some guys turning some pre-cut plywood into the hull of a boat. If they can do it, we can do it. Here's the blog of a guy building the first mk3 version of the CS20, with lots of pictures.
- Jody is still happy to have a podcast instead of a boat
- If anyone out there wants to help Matt and the Ten Gallon Hat Man in their assault on the 2016 EC, by all means get in touch
- Italian toddler explains food ethics for Matt
- One of the hosts of This Week in Virology also has a vertical farming effort
- Matt explains why this is similar to turbocharged cars
Jody’s Food Functional Components
- Cabbage keeps pretty well in the fridge
- Kefir great for folks who usually skip breakfast. It also keeps well in the fridge
- Matt requested calorie info...kefir has 140 kcal per 8 oz cup
- Jody wants you to take a good, hard, analytic look in your fridge...could you get more functional space by removing a shelf?
- This one comes from Jody’s spouse who always wants to reorganize...everything. But this one has paid off nicely
- Publix mobile app (Android and iOS), good for coupons and aisle numbers
- But bad when you switch the default store location and lose the list and coupons painstakingly compiled by spouse
- Jody tries to by only pre-washed salad/spinach; he is angered greatly when he has to open a package and dirty a colander
Matt’s Food T & T's:
- Matt & his partner like this cookbook a lot: One Pan, Two Plates
- Matt also really likes his fancy Le Creuset Skillet
- Buy smaller onions (& potatoes, etc.)
- Just try cooking; pretend there is only one seasoning if necessary.
- Jody appreciates this constraint
- One more: He didn't mention it on the show, but Matt really likes cooking outside on his excellent campstove, rather than getting the house all smokey when searing a $20 ribeye in his fancy skillet.
Bits and bobs
- Jody's current/terrible dishwasher makes Matt feel OK about not having a dishwasher
- Any given Publix location can provide widely divergent shopping experiences (but they're all better than Sweetbay)
- And the steak cuts are too thin, unless you spring for a fancy Publix like they have in South Tampa
- As usual, Jody's thoughts can be nicely expressed by an xkcd comic
- cookingforengineers.com appeals to Jody's need for exact instructions
- Pizza stone vs Travertine tile
- Canaries in coal mines
ALYT regrets the omission...
- Shout Out to Maryland & Mr. Maryland dealing with health issues. We wish them well.
