Re: First Ratatouille of the Season

Sun, 11 Jul 2010 23:57:45 -0000

So the meal was really yummy. Last season I started experimenting with adding small amounts of heat to my ratatouille. Either using a couple of serrano peppers finely diced and cooked in with the bell peppers or a combination of crushed red and chili powder. And the results were really coming along nicely. With today's dish, I only had access to some really strong garlic along with crushed red pepper. Definitely pushed it right to the edge of as far as you'd probably want to take this dish in the direction of heat. Just enough to know it was there, as well as staying with you for a few moments. But not too long!

And the steak was cooked nicely, of course. My rice cooking is getting better as well. In fact, I'm pretty much at the same point with a pot on the stove as I am using a rice cooker. Now I just need to adjust the volume of water vs. rice. Getting there.

So the tags came in and I've already given out several of them to family, friend, and even a couple to our breakfast waitress the other morning. She asked about them and told us her fiancée was a veteran. Seemed like a great reason to share a couple of the dog tags with her.

That was SO awesome! Especially since my boys are obsessed with Zombie Land right now! I can't tell you how many times they have watched it!

Re: Potatoes From Farm Fresh Direct in Colorado

THis is a fascinating question - the answer is if you truly want to eat local then of course, your coffee would be out :) but then for me in the UK, so would a whole heap of fruit & veg - the winter months would consist of yummy things like sprouts, cabbage and a few stored potatoes & onions!
Oh and don't even mention chocolate - cocoa doesn't grow too well here!
If everybody made an effort to eat locally, where practical, that would make a huge difference.

Re: Testing Disqus Commenting with Plaxo

Disqus is really the best commenting system at present. I have been working with Disqus for 2 years now and I simply can't complain about it.

Re: How Local Food Can Push the Line Back

Coolness. From a business liability perspective, I can totally understand that concept. Just too bad that's the age we live in.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by, Carol. Right on!

James, I would suspect that "food terminal" in this context means grocery wholesaler or distributor. m3real is saying that the manager of the Kroger can't buy a load of fresh tomatoes from a farmer who shows up at the store's back door and offers them at a good price.

Not sure what a food terminal is, but risking a guess and thinking it's some sort of farmers market? And it's too bad that the over industrialization of food has taken away some of the freedom and autonomy that local grocers had at one point.

Re: How Local Food Can Push the Line Back

It's not about getting stuff from local growers via the food terminal. It's about local stores getting stuff, from smaller operations, that doesn't ever go through the food terminal.

It wasn't that long ago that supermarket managers could accept products from vendors who showed up at the door. Admittedly, not many small farmers would likely turn up at a downtown Loblaws, but enterprising store managers could meet individual customer requests.
It was possible for a supermarket manager to get items that were not listed in the company computer, from vendors that had not paid a listing allowance or rented shelf space, etc.

Ehh... the tagline could use some work but I like idea behind it. Don't ask me to be original but I can criticize. ;0

Re: The Superiority of Fresh Vegetables

HA! I love the comment from Joseph. Actually, I opted for the breakfast meal. Much easier to make scrumptious without the big risk of dinner. French toast with hazelnut choclate and berry compote anyone?

Coffee!! Sticky pt. 4 most locavore (wannabe's like me!) At least it was organic, free trade!

So, I hope you'll be atoning for your store-bought fried chicken sin by sharing one of your meals real soon? Maybe something with a nice wine pairing??? Maybe something you can post before the morning of the 14th so I know what I'm cooking for V-day dinner???? :-)

Unfortunately, most of those characters were not broken by spaces, causing any page that my tweet showed up on to be jacked all to hell!

Re: Rules that change the rules

One of the best things I ever did was quite my job back in 2001 and move to Spain. In retrospect the hardest thing was getting to the point of making the decision to quit. Once I'd done that the rest was easy, it just followed on.

Regrets? Not a single one. That isn't to say life has been without problems along the way, but I am firmly in the driving seat of my own life, not some half brained idiot of a boss.

Right on! Glad this contest is about social media! Keeping up the good work. Hoping my content will have time to start bringing in the sign ups. I did vote in #vatorsplash so there's another 10 ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know (already knew, but you likely figured that out too!)

Re: How Are You Busting Social Media Myths?

Tue, 08 Dec 2009 02:14:18 -0000

Right on, Aliza! If anything, the actions of SM would have to be classified under marketing vs. advertising. But then again, some people just want to argue!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Way cool!

Re: How Are You Busting Social Media Myths?

Tue, 08 Dec 2009 00:34:29 -0000

Thanks for referencing my blog post on Web Worker Daily. It is always interesting to see what people take away from it. I especially like my Myth #6, however, tend to get a lot of people a bit miffed at me for saying SM is NOT advertising. They are just SO SURE it is. LOL.

Re: Testing Twitter Tools, on WPMU

Fri, 04 Dec 2009 17:19:22 -0000

Haha! Success is ours! So that was the challenge. I had activated the URL shortening add-on to the Twitter Tools plugin but without entering the account info, no link at all gets added to the body of the tweet. I guess as long as I don't mind using this will be great for now.
