I see them in the Asian Supermarkets here, but the durians are so frigging big, I am terrified to buy one to see what it really smells/tastes like....

It's still technically summer but it's also 13 degrees (Celcius) so I am making homemade beef barley vegetable soup. Another half hour before I can dig in...

You could always use a smaller bow or one with a lower draw weight if your back is bad, right?

20 pound draw? I think these were starter bows. Definitely couldn't do the longbow tho.

Just had my first archery lesson this morning (a two hour private session for the two of us was my hubby's birthday gift to me). I mentioned in the past that I want to experience some of the fantasy stuff we see in video games and TV and he remembered :)

By the end of it, I was consistently hitting the target area (about size of a dinner plate) - I seem to be a natural. Hubby on the other hand had arrows everywhere 0_o

I have a crap back so I'll see how my back responds to it (so far just tired muscle pain, not the horribly wrong back pain) . If I recover ok, I think I might like to continue!

I am Canadian and I am drooling.

I actually like the "nice" Canadian version. Watching Dragons Den and Shark Tank for instance are very different experiences and I like the nice Canadian one more.

True but you have to showcase those limited 4 ingredients - the judges get mad at you if you try to drown out a weird ingredient with too much from the pantry.

That's a challenge I like sometimes- taking limited ingredients and making something out of them.  That's how I wound up with that tofu dessert.

You should check out Chopped or Chopped Canada on the Food Network then. :)

I consider myself a good chef/baker... As long as I have a recipe to start from. I can modify existing recipes but I don't come up with anything complex on my own. Nevertheless, I do cook great food (much to hubby's delight).

[Reyn voice] ITS BRINE TIME! [/Reyn voice]



Still new to this, having trouble making my pictures a manageable size :-/

At any rate, family dinner tomorrow and it's potluck style. I have been asked to bring my famous ribs, which take two days to prepare. Day 1 is brining the ribs. This gives extra flavour, and softens the meat and makes it really moist and juicy. DAY 2 will be tomorrow where I boil the ribs for 2-3 hours, then cover them with an Asian style sauce, then BBQ them.

The brine has salt, lemon peels, cinnamon sticks, garlic, jalapeņo peppers, cloves, peppercorns and of course water.

One reason my ribs are so good is that I am obsessive about getting all the blobs of fat and membrane off them.

Thanks :)

It's very moist so you need no butter. Just a knife to cut a slice!

Banana bread. I did not have a loaf pan (left it behind somewhere) so used a 8x8 brownie pan. Worked nicely!



Recipe here

My bread used pecans instead of walnuts, had a handful of chocolate chunks in. :)

I have this big scrapbook that I add recipes to so I have no idea where this originally was published. Always been my go to banana bread recipe tho!

Ok, new to this. How do I get this to show my images correctly? I used the img tags... :(

Brown bananas = time to make banana bread with chocolate chips and pecans.

I don't always hVe time/room for epics... I love hVing some stand Alones around, or even trilogies but longer than that starts to cause some fatigue. A lot of epics just seem to have a lot of filler...

I buy physical copies of stand Alones and keep series on my Kindle

Some good stand Alones:

Curse of Chalion, by Lois Bujold McMaster
Love the characters and interesting world building in this one. Lois goes on to write more books in the same world but each one can stand alone.

Gospel of Loki, bu Joanne Harris
The tales of the Viking gods, from Loki's point of view. Full of snark.
