A meal in 30 minutes

I’m more of an eater than a cooker. When i saw a post in esquire about cooking four courses in 26 minutes, I knew I had to give it a shot.

After all, my fiance will be coming home at 9:30 pm from class tonight and what better thing to do than cook her a meal? From appetizer to dessert, this meal has it all:

  • Sherry grapes
  • Scallops with Boursin and radish spread
  • Bourbon and Brown-Sugar Salmon
  • Peanut Butter Cookies

Gourmet Meal in Half an Hour

Update: I’m happy to report that the Sherry grapes and Bourbon and Brown-Sugar Salmon are now part of my repertoire!


In the year 2000 (by 1910)

I love checking out Paleo-future. In it, it takes a look back into the future that never was. In today’s posting, the website shows some French prints for the year 2000. From 1910, its amazing how widely off some of the projects were (like flying fireman) but also how close some of the basic themes are to modern day technology (cars of war).

Slick deal – uranium ore

My cousin sent me a link to amazon.comwhere Image SI selling some uranium ore.

Worried? Don’t be, according to the posting:

We are always in compliance with Section 13 from part 40 of the NRC Nuclear Regulatory Commission rules and regulations and Postal Service regulations specified in 49 CFR 173.421 for activity limits of low level radioactive materials. Item will be shipped in accordance with Postal Service activity limits specified in Publication 52.

Whew, that really solves everything. If only Doc from back to the future were alive, he wouldn’t have to steal it from terrorists.
