Masterchef returns with new judge

*SPOILER ALERT*

I call complete BS on that elimination

I know the show is completely fake which makes it almost worse.

anyway Hetel completely melted down and should have gone (her food was awful-the drama with Gordon was humiliating - but he obviously wanted to keep her on)

and again a white male (who I didn't particulary like) has some pride, actually stands up for himself is kicked, not because of his food (which was lousy I am sure but not as bad as the other person's)

but because of his attitude (petulant child?) and possibly because of his color and gender

I completely expect this post to be deleted.

Vegetables that aren't necessary to grow at home?

yes that is exactly why I picked these vegetables, I never will find them locally as plants (except maybe for the beefsteaks)
the carrots also I never tried, they are Kuroda carrots, we'll see.

I ended up planting 2 types of tomatoes (Boxcar willie and beefsteak),sweet peppers (Jimmy Nardello), filet bush beans (Calima), rainbow swiss chard and a few carrots. For herbs I have basil and 3 perennials; sage, oregano and thyme

The boxcar willie tomatoes, the peppers and the bush beans are varieties I have never tried. Am looking forward to how they turn out.

I don't think the save picks are bizarre at all
it was obvious the annoying chef would win over the chef who got NO screen time and like you said no one was aware of

it's WAY too early to predict but I bet on the drummer whose mom was/is disappointed in him vs one of the single moms (probably shelly)

Pizza Dough

You are so right I found that out last night! Thanks for the tip :)

Pizza Dough

6.75 oz of water (about 3/4 a cup)
12 oz of AP flour (1.5 cup)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp yeast

correct me if I am wrong but how can about 3/4 a cup of water absorb 1 1/2 cups of flour without being sticky?

maybe the recipe was wrong in proportion ? I also can't find this recipe anywhere online

Anyway, does anyone have a recipe for refrigerator bread/pizza dough? I think that may do the trick with making a good dough at home

Pressure test tonight - cinnamon rolls

guess every episode is going to have baking now because of the new judge, what a shame-I am not interested in baking at all.

btw If someone is a "chef" does that title include baking? just curious

Here we go again:

tonight's episode 5/27
"In a pressure test, contestants must prepare their version of an apple pie."

Heck I would enjoy a bread making episode once in a while but more desserts? boo!

(think we will see even more baking now with the new judge tho *sigh*)

Coming to a Wendy's Near You

Good question but I don't think the minimum wage should be raised to $15 an hour, that's just ridiculous

BUT most minimum wages in most states are also ridiculously low

Coming to a Wendy's Near You

" They were never meant to support a family, can't ding the employer for that, not sure why all of the sudden the commotion. What changed?"

um the lack of decent pay jobs maybe? - but what do I know?

look at all the college grads working at starbucks e.g.

They are even hiring professionals now only part time. I just saw an ad today for a part time Dentist

But $15 an hour for an entry level job is definitely NOT the answer

Is it necessary to marinade a top round steak?

I have a top round "london broi" I guess you can call it, if I bring it to room temperature and put some montreal steak seasoning on it would it be any good to grill that way(I'll cook it rare) or does it need marinading?

It is 1.72 lbs and about 1 to 1 1/2 inch think?

Thanks if anyone can answer :)

Firegoat you are so right usual cast of characters.

Also, am I allowed to watch this show if I am not a single mother and/or was raised by a single mother? :D
