MMM 119: Overnight roast edition

Take any relatively lean beef roast (4-6#), season, and place in pre-heated oven at 500F. Roast for 30 minutes, then turn off heat. DO NOT OPEN OVEN. Allow 3-4 hours for medium-rare. Leave it overnight and you get medium rare and cool enough to pack immediately for a lunch. Haven’t done this in awhile, doing it right now, because I planned my lunch strategy for the week somewhat less than perfectly.

This week, real motivation.

Seriously, that pic at the top is really inspiring. I’ve lost 60#, it’s no small feat. I don’t know what her path was, but she did it, and that’s great. What are you going to do today to make life better for yourself tomorrow?

  1. >>>What are you going to do today to make life better for yourself tomorrow?

    Ignore the left over Easter candy surrounding me.

  2. First chick with the 60# weight loss kept her curves. Hopefully she doesn’t head to the mannish phase.

  3. TJ’s link to Ofra Haza music got me thinking and I looked through her discography just now. I had one of her CD’s a long time ago called Desert Wind. It was pretty good as I recall. Probably sold as part of a move somewhere along the line.

  4. I’ll need Pupster’s mantra and Leon’s MMM speech for the next two weeks: My partner is gone for vacation this week and a conference the next week. I’ll be catching all the referrals. I just checked my work e-mail to find 5 incoming messages…..

    EVERYTHING IS AWESOME !!!!!!!!

  5. Workie workie

  6. Tutu girl. What do I win?

  7. Everything is awesome, jimbro. It’s got a song and everything.

  8. Week one down with Paleo. Only after one cheat, because I thought it was ok. 3 small squares of dark chocolate, but it was only 71 % not 80. No Easter candy consumed.

  9. My deviled eggs with avocado were awesome. Everyone liked them.

  10. Morning, children.

  11. There were lots of cookies at work, and I made it through. I don’t think I’m going to crack on day 17.

  12. The preppers I know are losing their shit over this.

  13. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it, but I love the word “poncy.”

  14. Ebola’ s efficiency is a benefit. It looks folks do fast they can’t get took far from where they caught it.

  15. It is a great word, but doesn’t sound right in ‘Merican.

    My life is awesome, I’m the luckiest man alive.

  16. It kills … soo

    I miss my computer. My typos made a bit more sense. Autocucumber ducks me up.

    I’ll leave that one there.

  19. Damn you autocucumber!

  20. Leon?

  21. I like the top chick. Makes me think that I can do that if I just get off my ass.

  22. I’m going to try and include more of those when I find them.

  23. I think I’m going to be pleasantly surprised by my 30 day paleo thing.

  24. First day of spin at the new gym. Apparently they have super bikes or something.

    The quality of MILF will be evaluated on a scale of Jessica Biel to Rue McClananhan.

  25. The quality of MILF will be evaluated on a scale of Jessica Biel to Rue McClananhan.

    I approve of this scale, and will assess in the future based on these endpoints.

  26. I’m eating cheese too often, and I need white rice to hit my macros, so you may actually beat me.

  27. No cheese has passed these lips.

  28. Spin is a sat morn thing. Now that the weather is nice, I may drop it and just run before my double shift on Saturday.

  29. The problem with soon, is that I don’t want to look like any of the folks who go a lot.

  30. Spin \ soon

  31. Chicken legs.

  32. It looks like the only thing they ever work out is their legs.

  33. Plus- gear nerds

  34. Me. Winning comments.

  35. I don’t do spin. I have thought about buying a bicycle again, but I’m not riding one indoors.

  36. Bike riding outside makes me nervousr because of the cars. But the prepper in me thought I should get my bike in good order. Probably a good trailer would be good too.

  37. I may drop it and just run before my double shift on Saturday.

  38. What do I pre-heat the oven to, Leon? Mine doesn’t have a “Roast” setting.

  39. This was a glaring omission, poat has been updated.

    500F. Yes, it sounds too hot. It’s fine, rub with spices and salt and place the roast fat side up/ribs side down, as needed.

  40. Don’t broil, just “bake” at 500F for 30 minutes and then turn the oven off but don’t open it.

  41. I was thinking green bikini chick looked pretty good until I noticed her Adams Apple and dick.

  42. I have a beard question. I keep mine trimmed down to a 3.5 once a week. I’ve never had it very epic. Do the ZZTop/Duck Dynasty type beards still require you to shave under the jawline and down the neck? I would think once it reaches your t-shirt you can stop doing that, but I don’t like the feeling of neck whiskers. Not that I’m going to grow it like that, just curious.

  43. I usually lift mine and shave behind it so I don’t have any long whiskers past the hind end of my chin. I trimmed it down for the trip because I was meeting important folks in VA, but I plan to let it grow down until something like that comes up again. I miss combing it.

  44. Real redheads

    Ha Ha. That’s cute.

  45. How do rebels stay in shape, pupster?

  46. Real redheads

    Ha Ha. That’s cute.

    Shush, you. I’ve seen other photos, she appears to be a real ginger with a fake tan. It’s a neat effect.

  47. Chasing/running from Yankees? Walking in Klan rallies?

  48. Rednecks. Wow, my kindle changed redneck to rebel.

  49. Wow, my kindle changed redneck to rebel.

    Meh; pretty soon it’ll just change it directly to rightwingterrorists and you won’t think anything of it. Baby steps.

  50. Rednecks stay in shape with lumberjacking, iirc. Don’t try and just do the jacking part, if that kept men in shape there wouldn’t be fat guys.

  51. Leon, that first lady who dropped so much weight is a bigger motivator than all those perfect ones below. Just like you.

    How would a person who was never out of shape inspire me? But I get real motivation from you because you proved it can be done.

  52. Thanks, Tushar, that was my thought too. I need to hunt down more of those for future poats.

  53. The pics of the lady who lost weight are wonderful. But am I the only one who thinks her face looked “nicer”/sweeter when she weighed more?

  54. Faux redhead is also a faux female.

  55. Teresa, it may have been but so was my face before I had to give up brownies for Lent.

  56. 173 is still a big girl, but she doesn’t look that big.

  57. I keep thinking she must be like 5’11” or something.

  58. TiFW, the only difference I see is the smile. I think her face looks more graceful and feminine after the weight loss.

  59. Lol, Cyn,

    Worky worky.

  60. Her face is loverly both way, IMHO, and with or w/o weight she has curves. She is genetically lucky.

  61. I like the top chick. Makes me think that I can do that if I just get off my ass.

    I’m trying to get off my ass. I saw myself from behind and I’m starting to look like my sister. The mean one. I’d rather not.

  62. Regarding ebola….Has that been around forever? They say it comes from the forest bat. How did it jump from the bat to human? Did someone get bit by a bat or did someone eat a bat?

  63. I imagine ebola could be very old, but with the isolation of the past, it’d just kill a whole tribe and you’d never hear about it.

  64. Anybody fall on their keester yesterday?

  65. She used to be beautimous.

  66. Benny the puppy falls on his keester all the time.

  67. Yikes, HS… I hope you didn’t break a hip or anything.

  68. Oh, no, Cyn. I didn’t fall on my keester. I was just wondering if any of the rest of you drunks might have.

  69. I hope you didn’t break a hip or anything.

    No, but he might have gotten brain damage…..

  70. Haven’t had a drink in a couple of weeks. Probably won’t until later this week.

  71. So, are you a Catlick now, Leon?

  72. Haven’t had a drink in a couple of weeks.

    Never trust a man who doesn’t drink.

  73. AD, I drink. I have an assortment of liquors at home ready for the partaking. Just haven’t had the right time for it since I got back from VA. Had a goodly amount that week I was gone.

    So, are you a Catlick now, Leon?

    I have produced copious amounts of of evidence that would convict me as such. And I have a candle. My forehead has been washed a few times since Saturday, though, so I no longer bear the scent of anointing.

  74. Yesterday?

    No.

  75. Who HASN’T fallen on their keester?! You lie if you haven’t.

  76. That’s 173lbs????

    On the upside, she’s the only actual she.

  77. I fell three times in my driveway this past winter. FUCK YOU ICE.

    That’s 173lbs????

    That’s what I said. My only guess is that she’s hella-tall and curvy.

  78. she’s hella-tall and curvy

    You finally put one actual chick in the MMM poat and I have to hate her.

    *storms off crying*

  79. Don’t cry, Cyn.

    *pats her on top of her head*

  80. Augh! My go cart bit me! I leaned in the open window to get something out of the door pocket and the sharp corner of the window guide stabbed me in the skull. I’m fucking bleeding.

    My life is awesome and what gets blood stains out of dress shirts?

  81. Oh that’s brilliant. Someone over at the HQ managed to repost about 250 comments within their comment.

    And the sock was Ron Paul.

  82. Pups: Icy cold water or club soda if you can get your hands on it.

  83. I just saw that, BC. Awesome sauce. I hope they leave it for teh funnay.

  84. ManLez’s beautiful wife posted some great photos on Facebook of their family.

  85. Good thing Henry takes after his mommy. The dogs seem to be taking after Rosetta.

  86. There. That should confuse about half the commenters over there.

  87. medic

  88. Ya alright Pup?

  89. *hands Pups some dirt*

  90. Call a corpseman.

  91. CORPsman

  92. Double G hams have to be the most delicious hams ever. I have never bought a dud yet. No squishie flabby meat in ’em, at all.

    *loads bread with mayo and warm ham*

    *wonders how a spore of satan, sliced on top, would make it taste*

  93. Yeah, I’m good. It stopped bleeding but is under the hairline so I can’t really see how big of a chunk is missing. It did make that satisfying crunch noise that those of you with scalp wounds may remember.

    I’m teaching Pupsterboy2 to drive, he wants to learn on the go cart because it is small and semi-cool looking and a 5-speed, I figure if he learns on a standard shift everything else is easy.

    I think the car is extracting revenge for yesterday’s popped clutches, windouts, stalls and over-revs. The boy is doing well, he’s just nervous and thinking too much.

  94. We did the Archer Farms yesterday… perfect every time.

  95. Hydrogen peroxide works on bloodstains, too, but I would only use it on white items – don’t know what it does to colored fabrics.

  96. That thing that flew clear over your head, Cyn? Yeah, it was stealthy.

  97. What do you mean it’s Monday? Who stole my holiday?

  98. Oh yeah, I better wash my tablecloth. My FiL somehow poked his finger and bled on it. Almost had to beat him to put on a Snoopy bandaid. Um, dude, YOU’RE STILL BLEEDING!

    One year, he sat through his whole visit with a kleenex stuffed up his nostril. Before arriving, he cut himself while trimming his nose hairs. And then, while here, he found a pair of scissors to try to finish the job!

    My husband gets that from him. This is why he can’t sleep on nice sheets.

  99. It did make that satisfying crunch noise that those of you with scalp wounds may remember.

    *runs hand over divot in top of head*

    Yeah, the lock assembly on a top-opening minivan rear hatch door can do quite a number on the ol’ noggin.

    Gave DD#3 quite a scare the day that happened…..

    By ‘help’ he meant ‘You wheel this 500 lb. safe down a flight of stairs. I’ll stand in the drop zone giving meaningless directions while Mom blocks the exit and frets.’

  107. No. Have I ever mentioned that blonds have more fun?

    >_>

    <_<

  108. Cartoon physics came later, Pups. When we were loading the big chest freezer into the trailer.

    Me: Is it empty?

    Dad: I only put a couple hundred pounds of pork in there. We should be able to lift one end and slide it in.

    Me: *sweating, heaving, panting* What the hell? *opens freezer to find a couple hundred pounds of pork on top of 800 pounds of frozen fruit, vegetables, beef, chicken, fish &c* . . . You have to empty this. Come get me when you’re ready.

  109. Wear blood colored shirts.

    STFUMJ

    Actually that’s not a bad idea. Do blood colored shirts go well with dark brown pants? I may have come up with my new look for future head wounds that cause wet farts.

  110. Are your folks moving off the farm, Jewstin?

  111. So, does anyone want to hear any “Tales from the In-Laws™”?

    You should ask someone at Jos A Banks if they have wet fart colored pants and buy a pair. I think they give you 19 shirts for free or something.

  114. Hmmmmm….

    *weighs interest in Tales of the Inlaws vs. Tales of a Wet Fart*

  115. Let’s start with a fun story of love, loss and new-found love, shall we?

    BiL (not douchebag BiL, other, decent one) and SiL (selfish, lazy, self-centered shrew) are in the middle of a divorce. Once BiL moved out, SiL began dating a new guy.

    Fast-forward 7 months: SiL is diagnosed with breast cancer. New BF says “I can’t deal with this.” and bolts.

    BiL goes back and stays by her side throughout the entire ordeal.

    I think you can guess what happens next.

  116. I think you can guess what happens next.

    They shoot the dog?

  117. Wiser, no idea what happens next, but there is this story of charlie brown, lucy and football.

  118. I can’t compete with true tales of wiser.

  119. They shoot the dog?

    now why would they shoot the poor dog?

  120. I think you can guess what happens next.

    She got better and then cheated on him again with the same BF?

  121. SiL goes into remission, goes back to New BF?

  122. God, Leon! Way to wreck the fucking ending.

  123. God, you too, oso.

  124. Wiser, no idea what happens next, but there is this story of charlie brown, lucy and football.

    BiL is tossed out and boyfriend comes back!!!

    When I ask BiL how things are going he says “Well, we still working through everything. She’s still trying to get back on her feet after, yannow, the surgery. So I’m trying not to push her too much right now, what with all that we’ve been through.”

    Oooooookay……. sounds like everything is going swimmingly, dude. Best of luck with all that.

  125. God, Leon! Way to wreck the fucking ending.

    Look, it’s not my fault that the writer’s a cliched hack.

  126. Can someone send him the snippet from Moonstruck?

    He needs a slap and a snapoutofit.

  127. *waits for Cliff Notes version*

  128. Gee, so Johnny Depp pinches off another steamer. Why do people even bother?

  129. And speaking of cheating….

    Cousin and wife are currently on the outs. Married about 15 years.

    Seems cousin, who was so well-loved by his FiL that he was given an extremely prominent position in FIL’s company, with the expectation that, one day, he would be running the place, was not able to keep it in his pants, as far back as that little someone he had in staying in another room in the hotel where he and his bride spent their honeymoon.

    So now he’s jobless, homeless and, considering how well I know the bride, is gonna get ass-raped in the divorce.

    Ooops!

  130. This looks like much better version of the crapfest that Depp just released: http://youtu.be/sUa92vvLJWA

  131. Look, it’s not my fault that the writer’s a cliched hack.

    hey, don’t blame me if life is cliched.

  132. as far back as that little someone he had in staying in another room in the hotel where he and his bride spent their honeymoon.

    I have heard instances of this in the past, and I just can’t wrap my brain around it. I mean….how the hell???

  133. He married for money?

  134. And douchebag BiL was just awesome this weekend.

    Did absolutely nothing re: Easter treasure hunt. Got his niece to wrote the clues, his wife put together the baskets and his BiL (not me) put out the clues and baskets for him Sunday morning.

    ‘Cause he was tired from working all week, doncha know.

    Gotta give him credit though. He knew better than to ask me or anyone in my family. I think he’s just smart enough to know what the answer to that would be.

  135. He married for money?

    I think they loved each other at one point, but I also think he was simply following in his father’s footsteps. He was and is a well-known philanderer.

    But at least the dad had the courtesy to marry the woman he was banging while his wife was dying of cancer. Made it that much less uncomfortable when she went to the funeral.

  136. Oh, but BiL who was sooo tired that he simply couldn’t lift a finger to help was not too tired that he couldn’t able to take a break in the middle of the morning’s events to drive the 4 illegal aliens that his company just hired to work.

    Priorities.

  137. It’s like a soap opera

  138. Non douchebag BiL seems kind of dim.

  139. Oh my God! It was actually Dylan’s baby from the date rape! What will Shannon do now?

  140. It’s like a soap opera

    It is pretty incredible. And I just stand there and smile.

  142. Oh my God! It was actually Dylan’s baby from the date rape! What will Shannon do now?

    As wiserbride and i were falling off to sleep after talking about this stuff, I said to “As turn the wheels of time, so do the days of our lives.”

    She punched me.

  143. Non douchebag BiL seems kind of dim.

    Beta. This is what it looks like. He might not have started that way, but this is a man with no sense of what he’s really worth, and you’re never worth more than you think you are. If he were matched to a good woman unwilling to exploit him, he’d be okay. He isn’t, so he’s not.

  144. I hope it was in the nads.

    “So, to give a tiny bit of backstory – I have never really been ok with porn in relationships (I’m female) – however I’ve gotten a lot better about it. Recently I discovered my boyfriend likes/uses porn. I’ve opened up to it and have gotten interested in it myself. I like big dick porn. My boyfriend is quite average and has a severe insecurity over it. He saw the porn I watch and started crying (it was much like a girls reaction to porn I’ve read on here). It has made him severely insecure and upset and he has asked me to stop watching it.”

    Thanks for sharing your personal life, leon.

  177. I never had an ED issue, TYVM.

    I just realized I was using it a lot a few years ago, and thought “man, maybe I should give this up for awhile”. Then I tried… and failed.

    Tried again. Failed again.

    And that scared the shit out of me.

  178. And when I say “a few”, it’s really more like 2 years ago. I’m a lot better than I was, but I still slip up now and then. It’s humbling.

  190. This right here is an excellent point:

    A lesson that conservatives keep not quite managing to learn is that our long-term problem is not so much those who are receiving checks from the government as it is those who are signing them. Economically rational people who are dependent upon government support can be weaned from it through the relatively simple expedient of a better deal; economically rational people who are in the employ of the welfare bureaucracies at above-market wages are not expecting a better deal, nor should they be.

  191. *lower lip trembles*

    Ok there’s a big ass storm headed this way so I gots to beat feet. I’ll be back to pick you up later.

  192. Krauthammer just excoriated 0bama on the Ukraine/Putin matter. Again.
    So hawt, and so very sad.

  193. Stay safe, Dave and family!

    —————————–
    There is no better deal.

    Not working and getting paid is better than working and getting paid even double to some people.

    What is the point where someone says, ‘sure, I’ll work for a living rather than fucking off professionally?’

    I bet it’s a lot higher than we think.

  195. Hi lauraw. How are you?

  196. >>>What is the point where someone says, ‘sure, I’ll work for a living rather than fucking off professionally?’
    I bet it’s a lot higher than we think.

    For me and mine, it’s a pretty fucking low bar.

  197. My daddy used to say: Work, as bad as it is, beats the hell out of daytime television. I had to get to about 22 years of age before I agreed with him.

  198. OK, honey. Home stretch of the semester, completely overwhelmed with work. But I just can’t do any more today. Tomorrow is another day.

    How are you? Are you all settled in your new home, pretty much?

  199. Mom came over this afternoon and we picked her a bag of dandelion greens out of her weed row of my garden, in the glorious warm Spring sunshine. That was pretty nice.

  200. And my sugarsnap peas are up, and thinking about climbing a fence. This is also pretty nice.

  201. I think his wider point is that the latter group (the people who sign the checks) make a lot of noise about their concern for the former while doing their damnedest to keep them in thrall to Uncle Sugar.

  202. I watched your drink vids over at Wiser’s website and I looked at your girlfriend’s butt. That was okay too, if a bit humbling.

  203. Lara, I admire you for going to school. Do you ever want to tell a lib prof to eat it?

  204. You’re going to be fine. I know this because I know you.

    I’m settled in and home for two weeks in a row. My sister will be in town the week after next which should be really fun.

  205. I think his wider point is that the latter group (the people who sign the checks) make a lot of noise about their concern for the former while doing their damnedest to keep them in thrall to Uncle Sugar.
    ——————————
    Ah, that makes sense. Pretend you are talking to a 5 year old. That’s how I need to be spoken to. You and your fancy word thingamajigs.

  206. MJ named a drink girlfriend’s butt? That is totally bril.

  207. You should be equally concerned with the bureaucrat who approves the applications. They have no incentive whatsoever to carefully review the case. If they deny, the applicant escalates, which equals a hassle. If they approve, they never hear from the applicant again. There’s no oversight. And if someone blows the whistle, the DOJ (or equivalent) just ignores.

  208. You are going to like it Leon. Ford makes a nice truck.

    We had one before. It was way better than this one. We passed on it. Something didn’t feel right in my gut.

  209. Hey thanks Hotspur.

    And, every day. Every day. Sometimes it is hard to believe how bad it is. But then I remember myself from that age and realize that many of these kids will shrug it off as soon as they hit RealityLand.

    Main thing that kills me are the administrative people. According to the evidence of my eyes, the whole school is basically run by three really good secretaries. Everybody else is a waste.

    Thanks, MJ. If you’re sister is as funny as you are, you will be dead of stomach muscle cramps by the following Monday.

  210. Ah, that makes sense. Pretend you are talking to a 5 year old. That’s how I need to be spoken to. You and your fancy word thingamajigs.

    Sorry, man. I’m trying to get a gig as the conservative token sellout at Ezra Klein’s new place and I forget that the volume of paste consumed over here isn’t as inversely proportional to political savvy as it is in some other quarters.

  211. Your.

  212. Your…dammit

  213. Something didn’t feel right in my gut.

    You eat seven pounds of meat per day. Maybe go look at vehicles after a nice salad.

  214. I purchased a readymade herb garden kit. I now have cilantro and four other herbs (whose names I have forgotten) growing in tiny containers in my kitchen.

    Raises an eyebrow and looks triumphantly at Lauraw.

  215. I’m trying to get a gig as the conservative token sellout at Ezra Klein’s new place

    I’ll add this to my prayers. Because God needs a laugh too.

  216. *claps excitedly for Tushar*

    Yay! Have you ever grown herbs before? Does your family back home do any planting?

  217. God laughs every time a liberal mentions climate change.

  218. Is examiner.com a spoof site like the Onion?

  219. Looks like the really shitty stuff is going north of me.

    Good.

    >> realize that many of these kids will shrug it off as soon as they hit RealityLand.

    ^— so this. My eldest baby girl got the indoctrination hard at UT. Holy crap, Austin you are a bad influence. Taking care of herself for 6 years and going through some rough patches with jobs has taught her a couple things that only life can teach. She was *pissed* doing her taxes this year but it wasn’t an awful thing, it just frustrates her how much money the government takes from her.

    Oh and, Obamacare.

    When it passed she thought it was a good thing. She does not think this now.

  220. Dave is learning the fruits of patience.

  221. You know what HS, I really did. She would ankle bite a little about politics a few years ago and I never took the bait. I realized experience is the best teacher. I also let her figure shit out on her own, I mean I’d listen and offer advice if asked, be consoling and loving but I didn’t fix her problems. She makes me proud.

    Her kid sis is even better.. she’s so responsible I feel like a slouch sometimes.

  222. also she is gonna pick out my nursing home, so niceness seemed the right approach

  223. Laura, at one time, my family owned 5000 acres of land. Then the Govt decided that every lazy ass should own land and it is unfair that some people hoard all the land and live large. So they ‘purchased’ land from big landowners at about 25 cents per acre, payable in installments over 20 years. This land was allotted in 2 acre parcels to lazy bums, who let all that land lie fallow and get ruined. Overnight we were reduced to 39 acres. We went from very well off to near penury in a matter of days. Grandfather refused to cash those insulting checks. Not much enthusiasm for farming after that. All this happened before I was born.

    My current arable land holding (measures the kit….) is about 48 square inches. I have no plan to take it back up to 5000 acres.
    But I may in future want to buy a parcel of woodland where I can just hang out.

  224. Sorry, man. I’m trying to get a gig as the conservative token sellout at Ezra Klein’s new place and I forget that the volume of paste consumed over here isn’t as inversely proportional to political savvy as it is in some other quarters.
    ——————————————
    I like paste.

  225. Hahahaha

    Dave’s got his eye on the long game.

  226. Tushar, that story is sad. Your granddad must be a saint.

  227. Comment by leoncaruthers on April 21, 2014 5:35 pm
    I never had an ED issue, TYVM.
    =========
    Don’t thank me, I had nothing to do with it…………….I hope………….Nah, not muscular enough.

  228. Tushar, that would make me go all vengeance-y. Somebody would die.

  229. Satyagraha.

  230. Hotspur, people who had their wealth invested in cash, gold, urban real estate and stocks fared well. People with land and nothing else got screwed. Eh, life. My grandpa turned me into the conservative I am. He was pretty smart. In 1982 he predicted that the Soviet Union was unsustainable.

  231. I had no idea the other kind of Indians got screwed out of their land, too.

    *calls it maize in solidarity*

  232. MJ, the assholes who did this were chanting Satyagraha as they did this. Kinda like how the left mumbles about equality, justice, fairness etc.

  233. >>I had no idea the other kind of Indians got screwed out of their land, too.

    Ha ha! We did not have white man to blame though.

  234. I hope to go from morbidly obese to merely disturbingly fat, like this guy.

    http://imgur.com/gallery/LY6bi1c

  235. Gosh, Tushar! I am so sorry. Didn’t mean to cause you to dredge up a family horror.

    Government, though, huh? So full of good ideas about helping people. Always so smart. Especially so about agricultural reforms.

  236. His tits are better in the second pic.

  237. Laura, you did not trigger it. It is something I have kinda forgotten, but will never really forget. I am not making much sense, am I?

  238. XXXXXXXXXL to XXXXXXXL

  239. No you’re making sense except for the part where you’re confused and everybody else is tracking ok.

  240. I get it, man. There is similar crap in the background of my family back in the home countr(ies). There is no country on Earth that hasn’t figured out a way to fuck up a halfway decent inheritance.

    And that’s why we’ve all met here, in the last country to begin doing so.

    Anyway, I was going to just make sure that you knew about cilantro and coriander being the same plant.

  241. …48 square inches…you’re gonna need to transplant that

  242. Laura, I know cilantro and coriander are the same. Ground up Coriander seeds are the basic building block of most Indian spices.

  243. I think you’re talking about cardamom, Tushar. It’s not the same as cumin.

  244. Ha ha! We did not have white man to blame though.

    I’m sure you could figure out a way to pin it on the Brits if you worked at it.

  245. Jewstin, you’ve confused cardamom with cayenne. Please look up the word ‘chervil’ in the dictionary.

  246. Jewstin, are you really trying to teach spices to an indian?

  247. I’m going to stay over here and not at the mothership for a while…

  248. Kumquat.

    That’s the next citrus tree I’m going to get.

  249. Yes, Tushar. You people should never have invented pemmican.

  250. I promise I’ve made more pemmican than any Indian you know.

  251. Dot, not feather!

  252. I don’t doubt it Leon. None of the Indians I’ve met have made much of anything. They are awfully good at opening bottles, though.

  253. What’s in pemmican besides bear grease and twigs?

  254. Any spices?

  255. Tushar, you reminded me of something. Do you know about ghost peppers? And do they grow in temperate climates?

  256. I made mine with dried, powdered beef and warm tallow. I could have spiced it, but I never bothered.

  257. Dried, powdered meat, animal grease, and dried berries, Jimbro.

  258. What’s in pemmican besides bear grease and twigs?

    Ear wax and dick cheese.

  259. good beef jerky too

    http://pemmican.com/

  260. Dammit.

    It’s turned into a gardening blog again.

    I blame the lady with the hump who decided to completely fuck with the Horde’s ONT.

  261. Is there a Hostage recipe for pemmican? That sounds like a good rainy day project. MJ’s drink recipes are good to make and fun to try but I can’t keep buying all those mixers.

  262. Don’t play with big cats. They will fuck you up.

    http://lybio.net/gitanjali-kolanad-lion-tackles-woman/pets-and-animals/

  263. Is there a Hostage recipe for pemmican?

    See Jewstin @ 8:49.

  264. Jewstin is being a massive sarcastic douche. I’m fucking helplessly laughing over here.

    Jewstin, did you know that a massive sarcastic douche is 50% vinegar, and 50% you?

  265. I can put up a pemmican recipe at the site if you like. With proportions and everything.

  266. Apple cider or Balsamic?

  267. So, we’ll have the Connecticut Brisket Research Center, and the Michigan Pemmican Research Center.

  268. White.

    Cause we’re racist like that.

  269. As long as there’s no ear wax or Frumunder cheese in the recipe, I’m in. I looked it up and the few I saw said it was bland. Now I’m thinking it needs spice to make it more than a one time deal.

  270. gross

  271. >>Ear wax and dick cheese.

    I did once call Fromage cheese frottage cheese by mistake. So….

  272. Start with about 6# of eye of round, trimmed of all fat. Cut into long, thin strips and dry it thoroughly like you would for jerky (look up Alton Brown Beef Jerky for a good method). This will take at least a day.

    After you’ve got jerky, then get about 6# of suet. Dice it into small cubes and render it very, very slowly, skimming off the solids as they appear, might even want to pour it through a sieve and cheesecloth as a last step. Allow the rendered, filtered fat to cool to a little warmer than room temperature.

    Take all the jerky and grind it to powder with a mortar and pestle (just kidding, a food processor will do fine. Combine with the cooled tallow and spoon into cupcake molds lined with foil wrappers. Allow to cool completely. Store at room temperature or lower.

    Best place to season would be the grinding step. Maybe add some whole peppercorns, fennel seeds, dried cardamom pods, or all three. A little salt added to the tallow before mixing might work as well.

  273. And with that, good night.

  274. And now we know how to make Purina Eskimo Food.

    Goodnight, Leon.

  275. Is there any good reason to use tallow instead of lard? I’ve never used beef fat in cooking, but by all accounts pork fat is better. And I do love me some lard when I cook.

  276. Ha ha ha. We just got a quote request from a guy in Athol.

  277. Idaho?

  278. Asshole with a lisp?

  279. who you callin an “athol”

  280. missed it by *that* much.

    darn you Cyn CYNNNNNNNNNNNN

  281. One of my med school classmates was an Athol-ite

  282. Athol, Massachusetts.

  283. Oh. Atoll. I get it now.

  284. Oh. I spent some time near the one in Idaho.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athol,_Idaho

  285. http://www.athol-ma.gov/

    A great place to live, work, play, and have an alternate post office box in a neighboring town for receiving your mail.

  286. sits in the corner and pouts until Cyn hugs my neck.

    looks up.

    pouts some more

  287. Gosh, I hope this potential customer of ours is not a member of the Athol government, or the Athol Democrat party.

  288. I hear Barney Frank loves Athol. It’s his favorite place to play.

  289. The Athol town clerk will be sending out tax notices again soon. If your taxes are too high, you should call and ask them to see the Athol assessor.

  290. We have an Athol in Massachusetts, and an Athol in Idaho. Any others?

    ATHOLS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!

  291. I’m just not mature enough to live anywhere near this Athol town.

  292. “Masshole from Athol” was a lesser known Willie Nelson song from the late ’80s.

  293. My Athol is itchy

  294. How many years of college does it take to be the Athol assessor?

  295. I really want to go steal an “Athol” sign. I’ll hang it up on the wall next to my “Fucking” sign that I stole from the town in Austria.

  296. Did anybody demand that anybody else stop addressing them by their “slave name” today?

  297. Hey Andrew my Mosquito Magnet net is gettin full every week. I started it sooner this year and it’s working great.

  298. Fucking, Austria wants to change their name, but really only because Athols like CoLex keep stealing their signs.

  299. Don’t leave out Assonet or Assinippi, both found in MA as well.

  300. What a bunch of juvenile Athols you guys are.

  301. The Athol Conservation Commission is meeting tomorrow night. I had no idea they were endangered. Doesn’t seem possible.

  302. …but they’ve cancelled the Athole public health meeting. Thank goodness.

  303. They wanted to know which town in US is the most liberal. Some pointed fingers to sanfran, others to NY. Athol was fingered the most.

  304. Athol Fire

  305. I’ve heard that the pollution in Athol is awful. That the fumes that emanate for there are just eye watering.

  306. The Athol Conservation Commission is meeting tomorrow night. I had no idea they were endangered. Doesn’t seem possible.

    The Athol Environmental Conservation Committee disbanded after their failed “Keep Your Athol Clean” campaign.

  307. Well, to be fair, a lot of people were put off by the little promotional jingle, “I’ll clean yours if you’ll clean mine!”

    They found it to be just a bit too tongue-in-cheek.

  308. Well done Wiser!!

    Don’t forget to work in some Athol jokes.

  309. One of the problems with living in CT is that, since we’re so close to MA, chances are you are going to meet Athols on an almost daily basis.

  310. Surely there must be some CT towns with funny names….?

  311. >>>Don’t forget to work in some Athol jokes.

    Too bad it’s already happened. Maybe next season.

  312. Nope. No funny town names in CT.

  313. Is it alliteration or assonance?

    It’s assonance.

  314. >>>Surely there must be some CT towns with funny names….?

    Moodus?

  315. The town paper proudly exclaims, “News pulled straight from you own Athol!”

  316. Moodus isn’t really its own town, I don’t think.

  317. A few years back, the local Athol high school football team went undefeated.

    Seriously, those Athols were on fire!

    Sadly, the refs were obviously biased in the championship game. Seriously, it was amazingly blatant.

    The Athols got fucked, royally.

  318. >>>A few years back, the local Athol high school football team went undefeated.
    Seriously, those Athols were on fire!
    Sadly, the refs were obviously biased in the championship game. Seriously, it was amazingly blatant.
    The Athols got fucked, royally.

    This is the kind of gold that gets you on local radio, folks. We should be writing this shit down.

  319. Horrible. No one wants to see that.

  320. Does Athol have a practicing proctologist?

  321. >>>Horrible. No one wants to see that.

    I wasn’t there, but I heard it was rather painful.

    Especially for the little Athols.

  322. >>>I wasn’t there, but I heard it was rather painful.
    Especially for the little Athols.

    I’m sure those Athols were squealing like crazy.

  323. My favorite TX town name is “Cut and Shoot”

    nite kids. Cyn abandoned me again

  324. I was looking up the history of the town on Wiki and it turns out that they have almost an epidemic of osteoporosis in town. No one knows why. It could be the water. It could be the air.

    Whatever it is, the place is literally overrun with stooped Athols.

  325. Athol High School team name is the Un-PC Red Raiders.

    Feather Indians be pissed.

  326. Did you read who founded the town?

    Old Harry Athol was his name.

  327. I have always pronounced at At-Hole.

  328. >>>Old Harry Athol was his name.

    I wonder how many generations back the Athol clan goes.

    I would almost guarantee that every person in the Northeast is at least a small part Athol.

  329. >>>I have always pronounced at At-Hole.

    Then it would be @hole

  330. wiser, for 5 years before living here we lived in the one county in Texas with the highest per capita rate of cancer in the state. You would have thought it was down around Beaumont.. refineries, chemicals.

    It was a little county in Northeast Texas called “Hunt”.

    Weird

  331. Is this anywhere near Athol?

    http://tinyurl.com/n64ue7e

  332. *sneaks a hug around Dave’s neck*

  333. >>>>It was a little county in Northeast Texas called “Hunt”.

    Hmmmm….

    Taint no place safer than between Hunt and Athol, it seems.

  334. Oh you… you… Squibnockets!!

  335. >>>>Is this anywhere near Athol?

    Close. Disturbingly close, in fact.

  336. HA! Nice header already

  337. If I get the Athol job, I’ll look for t-shirts.

  338. >>>Taint no place safer than between Hunt and Athol, it seems.

    I heard there’s a lot of Brazilians around those parts.

  339. >> *sneaks a hug around Dave’s neck*

    NOW I can sleep.

  340. Athole Mass vs Intercourse Penn for the gaywad champeenship of the northeast. Residents of Blueball, PA are sidelined for this one.

  341. If I get the Athol job, I’ll look for t-shirts.

    Best shirts evar.

  342. Goodnight, Athol lovers.

  343. Nighty dreams, Miss Laura.

  344. I’ll work on a gift pack. Agawam, Naugatuck, Athol.

  345. *drinks*

  346. Weirdness we have here in AZ: “Three Way”, “Two Guns”, and “Why” are my faves, with “Christmas” and “Santa Claus” coming in very close behind.

  347. Should be “cathiun”

  348. ‘k, I’m out.

    ‘Nite, Athols

  349. G’nite, radiobuns.

  350. We don’t need weird names here in Florida, we ARE the weirdness.

  351. You do seem to have a lot of noteworthy dudes getting arrested for stuff.

  352. So, just out of curiosity, practically hypothetically, is four miles a long way to walk if you’re not conditioned and if so, on a scale of 1 to 11ty, how mad would I want be that my youngest and his father have not prepared for such an event occurring on Saturday? Hypothetically.

  353. Four miles has been a long way to walk since the invention of the wheel.

  354. Exactly!!

  355. Unless your son and his father are horses. They’re down with that.

  356. On relatively level ground, it should take between 60 to 90 minutes at a brisk pace. 2 hours if they’re just ambling along. Make sure they take a lot of water.

  357. Water, sunscreen, snacks, ice pack for the insulin, maybe an umbrella, more water, some sugar pills, meh, screw it… I’ll just head up to Payson and vegitate and they can screw it up themselves.

  358. There is a town called Blair Atholl in Scotland. It is where the Duke of Atholl lives. (Not making a joke) (My dad, the king of fart jokes, couldn’t stop snickering)

  359. I love you Athols.

  360. Good night dear sweet friends. Sending out internet hugzz to you all.

  361. Cyn, what is the expected temperature during the walk? Any way they can walk early? 4 miles really isn’t that much, even for a chubby Type 2 50yr old.

  362. Good night Cyn.

    * links Comfortably Numb*

  363. Good night dear sweet Cynnie.

  364. G’nite, Cyn. Sweet dreams of comfortable, air conditioned automobiles to you.

  365. Scott, what happened to the cashier? We spend all of our time vetting $100 bills and $20s are the most frequently copied.

  366. I don’t know.

  367. Four miles is nothing.

  368. Round of golf.

  369. I got to open up an investigation on a cashier tonight. Yay! (I H8 that part of my job.)

  370. Speaking of cover bands …. ahahahahahahaha!

  371. The thing that sucks about the diabeetus, is everything messes with your numbers. Too much sleep, too little sleep, hormones, iron levels, ice cream, no ice cream, cold, flu, asthma, sunburn, dehydration, everything!!! Stress. No stress. Exercise. Too much, too little. Breathing.

  372. You know, I think I would get along with Ace if we ever met.

    (see his thread below the ONT)

  373. That sucks, Oso, sorry to hear that.

  374. Lippy, don’t make me feel like an ass. I can’t imagine what you are going through. We both need a Yuengling and a sammy from Primanti’s.

  375. Is Lippy ill? If so, why wasn’t I notified?

  376. Saturday, I had a Mexican couple that could not speak or understand English. I could understand them, but I couldn’t get them to understand me. Yay for rancher from Springer who was able to translate. Today, deaf woman who was barely literate in English. Yay! Better than deaf Mexican couple that was illiterate in English and Spanish.

  377. Beta Dan. He makes Easter ham, but doesn’t buy Hawaiian Dinner Rolls for leftover sammiches.

  378. I get the whole “Culture War” dealio. Truly. Jimmy Fallon is playing “Stump the Band” and the fucking commie-cracker h8n Roots don’t even know “Centerfield” Kill me Nao.

  379. Oh, sorry, stepped away. Oso, we will clink glasses in solidarity.

    Sean, MS. And a damn problem with barfing all the time. The latter is what kept me from meeting you and Peej that day.

  380. Stupid Pirates beat my Reds today.

  381. Sorry

  382. That’s right, Lippy. I’m sorry I forgot.

    To be fair, oso, “Centerfield” is kind of a shitty song.

    (Full disclosure: I like The Roots. I still have a bunch of their albums.)

  383. Sorry, Sean? Heck no, don’t be. It did suck though not being able to go to that lunch.

  384. It is a shitty song that is played in every ballpark in America. Doc Severensin would’ve known it!!! Commie bastidges!

  385. Oh, Oso, you asked me about We Are Family. Ugh, I hated it even before the Pirates started using it. Then it was played so much I wanted to kick something.

    Then I was in Rite Aid today and it was playing on their canned background music. Aaargh, work faster, pharmacist!!

  386. HAHAHA Dan pretended to be a Reds fan during our courtship days. He was rooting for the Pirates tonight. His Mom is from St Louis. He is one of those AL/NL people. He has the Roberto Pirates ball cap and the Tekulve. My whole marriage is 24 years of one big MLB lie!

  387. *giggles

    That, and the no Hawaiian rolls debacle. You need to get out of this abusive marriage now!

  388. I know!!! Who doesn’t plan for leftovers?

  389. BTW Dan is crappy with desserts. He bought a Marie Callender Peach Cobbler. No flavor. He seems to think that I should contribute to the dessert dealio since I don’t cook. Oh yeah, let the Type 2 pick the dessert.

  390. hmmm, I’ll remember that about the peach cobbler if I’m tempted to get one.

    Well, time to hit the ol’ sacco vanzetti. ‘night!

  391. g’night, Lippy!

  392. Fighting with a Moron on FB.Tedious.

  393. Dan and I re-watched Willow last night. I’ve read the books and I get really depressed watching the movie. Even with the jub-jub.

  394. Morons on FB posting about The Princess Bride. Instant classic. Book was better. I’m that guy.

  395. I can make a hundred yard line start to dash
    I can make a whole derp of fish start to splash
    I can make Conan and the Titans clash
    And I can Metallica and Guns ‘N Roses thrash

  396. Good morning all. Paula got home from work at 0430 and woke me up getting into bed. Couldn’t fall back asleep. Oh well.

  397. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/beef-jerky-recipe.html

    That recipe looked good until I got to the part about the box fan and the AC filters. Can you do the low oven/wooden spoon/door ajar method?

  398. After watching Alton Brown, other TV chefs sound like unscientific illiterate morons.

  399. I’ve never actually heard of him until Leon mentioned that recipe. I’ll have to watch a video or two. That being said, other than “Man versus Food”, I don’t watch much on the Food Network.

  400. Time to take my Tacoma to Toyota for the 100,000 mile service check. Something is loose under the engine, probably a part of the exhaust. I’ve taken care of 3 of the service managers kids so they know I’m a doctor and usually find something expensive to fix on it. At least I know they’re doing it right (I hope!)

  401. The low oven will still cook the beef, which is fine if you’re going to eat it as jerky, but the fan/filter method is the best way to just dry the beef, rather than cook it. Alternatively, you could go with a dehydrator on the lowest setting.

    Is there any good reason to use tallow instead of lard?

    Yes.

    1) Beef fat has a much better ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, even if both animals were grain-finished.
    2) Lard sold in most grocery stores is hydrogenated so it will be solid at room temperature. It’s basically margarine and genuinely awful for you.
    3) Pork fat tastes funny with beef muscle in it. Beef fat matches better with beef muscle.

  402. It was actually just the method I wanted to point you to, Jimbro. The recipe has soy sauce in it, I don’t eat that.

  403. Morning, children.

    Camels are assholes

  404. Oh man. That is a thigh bone fracture for sure. Camels have nasty powerful jaws.

  405. A Robin is sitting on a tomato support in the garden, worrying an old piece of nylon cord. He’s got it in shreds but it is still firmly tied to the stake. He keeps trying to fly off with it. But no joy.

    If he keeps it up I’m going to go out there with a pair of scissors and free it for him. Cute little goober. Trying to build a house for his wife today.

  406. I might consider eating beef from grass-fed cows, but only if it is organic grass.

    **assumes assholier-than-thou expression

  407. On a four mile walk, you only need water for comfort. I don’t bring water for a run unless it’s over six miles and hot.

  408. I made jerky on stacked wire grids in front of the pellet stove blower last Winter. It came out shatteringly dry. But still tasty.

  409. You need “shatteringly dry” for pemmican. Just shy of dessicated. Makes it easier to powder.

  410. Birds like dryer lint too Laura. My ex wife used to leave it out in the spring and in the fall, when the nests fell out of trees, they’d usually contain lint. I scatter the hay bales I use to shelter my bee hives. Birds like the free straw.

  411. Any difference between soy sauce and tamari (which is fermented I think)?

  412. http://www.differencebetween.net/object/difference-between-tamari-and-soy-sauce/

    There’s a site called difference between FFS

  413. anybody ever make camel jerky?

  414. ^^^

    Things that sound dirty

  415. A lady I waited on sunday told me that there is no such thing as organic grass fed beef because of the comtrails spraying chemicals on the grass in order to reduce the population.

    Then I found $20. She left it as my tip. Sometimes those single diners will surprise you.

  416. Well, the rattling sound was a loose clamp. $23. Oh, and you need new front brakes….$$$ !!!

  417. Ok, when I joked about organic grass being fed to cows, I had no idea this is real.
    You Americans should think twice before calling the Japanese weird. The only weird thing they do is tentacle porn.

  418. Heh. All that rushing around trying to get a press release done for Erf Day, and it’s stuck in the approval process. Wonder if they will still release it if it’s late or re-write it and go through the approval process again.

    Also, Steyn on Fox. Nice.

  419. You Americans should think twice before calling the Japanese weird. The only weird thing they do is tentacle porn.
    ——————————–
    Soooo untrue.

    It’s not weird.

  420. Header = HAHAHAHA.

  421. Tamari is made from tamarind seeds, and is a poor substitute taste-wise for soy sauce. But if you can’t eat soy sauce (main ingredient: wheat), it’s about the only option out there.

    Rumor has it that one manufacturer of soy sauce actually distills their sauce, which supposedly makes it “safe”, but I have yet to find this fabled elixir…..

  422. Teresa, you might try Whole Foods or Earth Fare. I get Worcestershire sauce without anchovies at Earth Fare.

  423. Apparently the chemtrails are making us all sterile. Despite all the single chicks at work getting knocked up. We’ve got another one. There was 3 or 4 last year.

  424. Ok, when I joked about organic grass being fed to cows, I had no idea this is real. You Americans should think twice before calling the Japanese weird.

    Honestly, “grass” is what cows used to be fed for the longest time – grain-fed/corn-fed cattle is a relatively “new” thing, historically speaking.

    “Saltgrass” – stuff near a saltwater coast – makes for some of the tastiest meat out there.

    And butters, cheeses, and milks can taste very different, depending on what type of grass is fed to the cows. Just ask the French….

  425. Now that i think about it, maybe 5.

  426. Haven’t seen it at Whole Foods, Roamy – don’t know if we have any Earth Fare stores around here. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I’m not sure the distilled soy sauce is made anymore – I’ve never seen it offered on any of the GF websites, which makes me think it’s “extinct”.

    Maybe I should start a non-profit and get government funding…..

  427. Apparently the chemtrails are making us all sterile. Despite all the single chicks at work getting knocked up. We’ve got another one. There was 3 or 4 last year.

    Behold the power of this fully armed on operational Sean’s Penis.

  428. The hell? We’re still here in the tucker thread?

  429. Sounds like a nice walk, Car in. Are you admiring the shallow graves of the hobos you’ve killed?

  430. I was going to put up a new one but decided you guys were too squeamish for it.

  431. It’s worse than a bunch of rope-veined, dick-tucking pre-ops?

  432. Fuck it. I’ll modify it and put it up.

  433. Chemtrails. That’s why she’s eating alone.

  434. Despite all the single chicks at work getting knocked up

    Best fertility treatment imaginable is being unmarried and po’.

  435. Bcock doesn’t even look at these anymore. There isn’t a single visible arm vein this week.

  436. Well, okay, one vein.

  437. >>>Chemtrails. That’s why she’s eating alone.

    Well, that and the raving lunacy, general bitchiness and the smell.

    But mostly the chemtrails.

  438. G’morning, cool kids.

  439. “vein”

  440. I hate veins. They always get stuck in my teeth.

  441. Ha!

    Wait…

    Ewwww.

  442. Good Lord. I forgot headphones and the waiting room TV has Queen Latifah Show on. Time to go look at new cars.

  443. Oh hey, it’s erf day.

    *starts tire fire*

  444. Hey, she left me $20 on a thirty dollar bill. I don’t judge. She was all right in my book.

  445. New post.

  446. Jimbro, I have been known to walk over and then the tv off in waiting rooms.

    * studies up on chemtrails and prepare to eat alone in resturants.
