Best place for dinner in Yuba City????

Unfortunately Sopa Thai has been mistakenly altered for American tastes. Their dishes are heavily sweetened. The pad Thai I had there tasted like strange Thai candy.

If you want some authentic Thai or Lao food I suggest Asian Cuisine or the recently re-opened Pad Thai Cuisine.

Chipotles in Adobo

The two adobos evolved separately. When the Spanish arrived in the Phillipines they noticed a dish aesthetically similar to what they called adobo and the name apparently stuck.

Question for cold brew coffee fans about your system

I've never understood the benefit of making the concentrate. Maybe so you can make it for a few days ahead of time? I like my coffee a bit stronger than most and this method gives me decent strength and a lot of delicious coffee.

I make my cold brew using a 1:5 ratio of coffee:water. Right now I'm using an old protein scoop, so one filled with coffee followed by 5 of water. I like using a ratio rather than measurements because I don't always have measuring equipment with me and I can take this camping pretty easily as well.

It goes into a large enough container overnight, although I prefer around 12 hours.

When ready it gets filtered through a coffee sock I picked up when I was in Laos.

Finally put into a chilled glass with ice and sometimes a straw. So delicious.
