PRISON CUSINE ... What is a typical menu?

and that was JoCo, (for anyone unfamiliar with the area of KC, the tax base of Johnson County can range from basic to really quite plush)

Why does my bread turn out dense?

a crunchy crust is where brushing it with water a few times during the first 15 or so minutes comes into play. this last time I over did it and you could cut your lip on it.

maybe I'll try an olive oily water next time (and there will be a next time)

"Nothing better than fresh baked bread!"

even the mistakes are good.

Any fix for sour crab corn soup? Baking soda?

Are commerical fridges and freezer okay for a residence?

may have to wire up to 220v - not a huge issue, but is a consideration.

I love J of C but you do have to 2nd guess some of the recipes esp. in the 1970's edition like the one for pasta dough. (a weird side note a friend's husband is somehow related to Rombauer!)

at first I was going to say poor Hank, but read more and he's the one who scored in the long run.

oh wait that's a rough scenario for a nouvelle film noir thing I'm working on, but it does sound kinda plausible, no?

"dump" recipes??

wow you screwed up big, see, you should have bought a pasteurized 'guacamole' dip (they're usually in the dairy case) and gone from there.

wow you could write a food column (smirk)

actually that might be a fun exercise, describing that meal in glowing even attractive terms...

PHREDDY - just don't do what some asshole did: as using a gun, even unloaded, in a bank heist has a mandatory federal sentence of something like 20 years. the guy was already 70 and couldn't handle life on the outside so figured he wanted to go back in for his duration. the stupid SOB shot and killed the security guard. so needless.

it does indeed look good, anyway spotless pans always mark you as a t/o or eat out person and you don't want that now, right?

I think I was already reading between some lines and fairly sure I did yet: the old railroad near Canon!

On the road

6th street in SF? maybe in 1990, doubtful any more. but there are always such places to be found if one is resourceful.

there was a snake-handling, knife-throwing, strip-tease burlesque act in 1949 usually under the name 'Flippers' O'Brien. she moved the circuit fast, never more than 2 nights in any town and no town with a large newspaper. after she disappeared from the scene (rumors abound, new wealthy lawyer husband or something) her piano player turned up dead at a small hotel in Joplin, Missouri of a cerebral hemorrhage associated with a long drug addiction. oddly the local paper found the detail that the bed was cast iron and had squeaky springs to be significant.

Rivets or Welds, your opinion

welds please. although if a rivet fails you can always easily drill it out and replace it with less fuss than a spot weld (personally if a weld fails I'd just take the bastard to an auto body shop or something).

I too was thrown by the size and void. did your Texas include a blown transmission, an afternoon waiting on the highway and a few days at a freakish crapshack motel in Abilene?

ohhh memories.

"Google it"

there is a game called GoogleWhack.

less than one search result: you're tops. yet no result you are (uhh well something pointless) but hey you found nothing! I do it only every few months (bonsai only engages so often), yet in 6+ years I've achieved that twice! I AM the Vasco de Gama of nowhere and nothing!

"dump" recipes??

I also cook on the fly (off the cuff? ad hoc? without a net?) and only measure when baking (that stuff is hard).

thin ice

always knew I was on thin ice but now my comments need to be "voted on by the Community"? seems a bit Orwellian. and makes me want to shut down (ehh no love lost there)

Do you like or dislike the new format ?

vote on this: you have (had?) a good thing, a workable model entirely in motion.

tell the intern with big ideas to go sit in the car.

when was this 'community' ever cohesive enough to have a rational and somehow parsed opinion? sociologists crave the sleep lost all these years.

attn: mgmt. except for this clarifying question, I didn't notice the change. but it's annoying. ignore those MBA's, BaComm types and spend your money on better issues that your actual users request - as you well know we are an opinionated focus group.
