Have you forgotten to count all the screws loose in your head?
              I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.'

           Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad.
You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell,

         'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!"

What happend to your McDonald Diet bro?
That was only for the challenge against Anssi in which he backed out of.

It was to be featured in MD.  I was going to prove that I would easily upstage Anssi and prove him wrong on everything by eating Mcdonalds and nothing else. Whereas he was to use all supplements and some sort of oats and chicken breast garbage diet.

Its a shame it didn`t take place.

1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar

9 tablespoons (1 stick plus 1 tablespoon) unsalted butter, diced
18 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped 6 large eggs

Ganache:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped

Lightly sweetened whipped cream
PreparationFor cake:
Preheat oven to 350F. Butter 10-inch-diameter springform pan. Line bottom of pan with parchment round; butter parchment. Wrap 3 layers of heavy-duty foil around outside of pan, bringing foil to top of rim. Combine 1 cup water and sugar in small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.

For ganache:
Bring whipping cream to simmer in small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and whisk until smooth. Pour over top of cake still in pan. Gently shake pan to distribute ganache evenly over top of cake. Refrigerate cake in pan until ganache is set, about 2 hours. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and keep refrigerated.

Run knife around pan sides to loosen cake; release sides. Cut cake into wedges and serve with whipped cream.

Spaghetti and Meatballs Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence

 
 
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 cup milk
4 thick slices firm white bread, crust removed
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 1/2 pounds ground pork
1 large egg
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, plus more for serving
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cups heated Pomodoro Sauce, recipe follows, or good quality jarred tomato sauce
1/2 pound mozzarella cheese, cut into chunks
Leaves from 3 sprigs fresh basil
1 pound spaghetti

Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil for the spaghetti. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and parsley and cook until the vegetables are soft but still translucent, about 10 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and let cool.

Pour enough milk over the bread in a bowl to moisten and let it soak while the onions are cooling. Combine the meats in a large bowl. Add the egg and Parmigiano and season generously with salt and pepper. Use your hands to squeeze the excess milk out of the bread and add that to the bowl along with the cooled onion mixture. (Hang onto the pan - you'll need it to cook the meatballs.) Gently combine all the ingredients with your hands or with a spoon until just mixed together. Don't overwork or the meatballs will be tough. Divide into 10 equal pieces and shape them into 10 nice looking meatballs.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat a 3-count of oil in the frying pan over medium heat and brown the meatballs on all sides, about 10 minutes. Put them into a baking dish and spoon about half of the tomato sauce over. Shower with the mozzarella and drizzle with olive oil. Put the meatballs in the oven and bake until the meatballs are cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in the boiling water until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and put it onto a large serving platter. Pour on the rest of the sauce and mix well. Spoon the meatballs on top of the spaghetti and garnish with basil leaves. Serve immediately along with extra cheese.


Pomodoro Sauce:
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 (28-ounce) cans whole peeled San Marzano tomatoes, drained and crushed by hand, liquid reserved
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces


Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the vegetables are soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully add the tomatoes (nothing splashes like tomatoes) and about 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the sauce is thick, about 15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring for a few minutes with a wooden spoon to further break up the tomatoes. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Stir in the fresh basil and season again.
Yield: 4 cups

2. Whisk together the eggs, remaining sugar, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt until in a large bowl until combined. Slowly whisk in the warm milk mixture. Add the stale pumpkin bread and stir to coat. Let the bread sit in the mixture for 10 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed. Transfer the mixture to a large buttered 4 quart deep dish baking dish. Place the baking dish into a large roasting pan and pour hot tap water halfway up the sides. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until slightly puffed around the edges but not quite set in the center. Remove from the oven and let cool on a baking rack for at least 2 hours. Serve warm or at room temperature in bowls topped with the caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

Apple Caramel Sauce
2 cups sugar
cup water
cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons apple brandy (such as Calvados) or cup apple cider

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat. Cook until the sugar has dissolved and turned a deep amber color, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the cream and apple brandy. Return to the stove over high heat and cook until combines, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm.

Spiced Whipped Cream
1 cups cold heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Using a hand-held mixer, mix together the cream, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl until soft peaks form.

You  people are not only dumb, but also totally clueless about cuisine.  You call that a breakfast?

Then you have the mindless, self-demented parrots chirping about how food needn`t taste special.

When is your ignorance going to subside and realize that you can eat anything you possibly desire and it will not matter?

When are you going to eat like a king instead of a peasant?  Most of you are peasantry I do suspect as evidenced by your food knowledge and choices.

TA its not cool what you just said man,

this is real life shit.
It will only get worse as global warming will worsen.  People are too stupid to realize that they are the contributing factor of not only the start of these fires, but the worsening thereof.

They also build in areas where it makes no sense to build.  Perhaps this is the wakeup call that they need.

I only feel sorry for the displaced animals and ruined plants.

28542  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Anybody in San Diego County getting evacuated!! on: October 23, 2007, 04:10:16 PM
This all is a result of human stupidity I hope you know.  Stupidity in regards to the enviroment.  The raging fires would not be so if it weren`t for humans.

I say let it all burn.

The GM is Gabe. Great guy/straight shooter.

Alex hope your safe, I think they have that discovery fire contained but I heard that it was ablaze again on the North County times (comments down the bottom)...hope thats not true.... Hopefully that Witch Fire which is 0% contained and they cant do anything with doesnt decide to shift north as I know thats not far from you. Regardless stay safe. 
Did you get rid of all the Olive Oil in your house so it wouldn`t create more of a mess of things?
