That lentil muck is even better if you take Greek/strained yogurt, add some salt and fresh garlic, then top the muck with that yogurt.

BTW, vegetarian uses for mustard:

3) the best vinaigrette!

Re: yoghurt - nice. We ate the muck with spiced roasted cauliflower which I served with a yoghurt, garlic, OO, S&P, and lemon juice dressing - it's a fantastic dressing/sauce for a lot of dishes. We eat it pretty often, but not with lentil muck. At least, not yet.

Yes, vinaigrette! I mentioned that. Crucial.

I am glad you guys have been talking about mustard. I have a bag of brown seeds and a bag of black seeds, and I tried making some a couple weeks ago. The reulsts were less than stellar, in fact I threw it all away. I soaked the seeds first, and they did not blend well, the flavors were funky, it was all just lousy.

You motivated me to get back on the wagon. I made another batch with just black seeds. This time I used a coffee grinder to grind the dry beans instead of soaking them first, and added different spices. It is wonderful. Thanks for bringing it back to mind.

Thats a cool idea, I'd have a ton of recipes to contribute. My wife and I made some of our second sons food at home and now our third little one has only eaten what we've made ourselves. It's much easier than most people would think. Well except that one time at my mother in laws where she insisted he'd like the stuff from a jar, he loves pureed carrots but apparently despises Gerbers version.

Dropped a knife and instinctively tried to catch it. It shaved two tendons on my right pinky right off the bone. Had to have surgery and I still have very limited range of motion on that pinky.

Good news is, I caught it. Bad news is, I caught it, then it hurt, so I dropped it....


...on my toe. Needed 3 stitches on that too.

Believe it or not, but ground white pepper works very well to stop bleeding. It's maybe not the best choice, but I and others I've worked with have used it in a pinch.


As for a horror story,

A year or so ago I'd just finished putting a different angled edge on my then-new chef knife and I held up a sheet of paper to check the knife's sharpness. I held the page in my left hand and the knife in my right, and slowly but smoothly sliced the sheet in half. When I looked down to pick up the piece of paper that had fallen, I noticed a weird pinkish, bandage-colored peanut-shaped something on to of the paper. I thought, "What the..." before I realized it was the skin off the side of my knuckle on my index finger of my left hand. I'd sliced the epidermal layer off without even realizing it. For a few seconds I could see a semi-translucent, wet divot of tissue, with a vein directly below that. Before I could finish the thought, "I'm glad I missed that vein," the wound started bleeding like crazy. After several changes of paper towels, I finally gave up and wrapped one towel around my finger and put on a vinyl glove and just let it bleed. I was left with a pretty gruesome wound, then scab, and now a scar that I'll have for the rest of my life. The next day I was back at it, fiddling with the angle of my chef knife.

Yeah, I can understand that sentiment... With mine I remember looking at it and thinking "oh that's not too ba....why can't I wiggle my finger?" That feeling of knowing you used to be able to do something mere seconds before is one that I would not wish on anyone.

Not in the kitchen, but when I was a kid one time when I'd just got done sharpening my pocket knife, I managed to fold the blade shut across one of my fingers. When I felt it, I sorta instinctively shook my hand, which sent the knife flying and slicing through the top of my index finger pretty near to the bone. There was a `dead' spot on my finger between just proximal to the first joint and the fingernail that always had that feeling like it had just fallen asleep and had that light tingling like feeling was just returning. That lasted about twenty, twenty-five years.

I think that's the worst, or at least most persistent injury I managed to inflict on myself with a knife. Worst period was getting stabbed a couple times in Juárez. Still have a pretty nasty, jagged scar from when a guy tried to stab me and I tried to do some badass kung fu poo poo and disarm him but I had way the gently caress too much mescal in me and hosed up the timing and managed to overanticipate his move, so I ended up getting the tip of his knife raked along from the webbing of the thumb of my right hand along to nearly the wrist. Ended up disarming him that way, accidentally, because it got wedged pretty good in my hand and in the sleeve of the jacket I was wearing. Didn't notice it at first, just felt something on my hand. Sorta shook it while I was watching the guy watching me, trying to figure out what just happened. Shaking my hand knocked the knife loose and sent this fan of blood flying loving everywhere, because I was bleeding like crazy. Guy saw this, and I guess figured gently caress this, and took off. Ended up getting some messy loving stitches that were bad enough that you can still faintly see this hosed up pinched stitching pattern in the scar.

Never really done anything that bad in the kitchen. Kinda give myself a nick every once in awhile. I really have worse luck with getting random burns and poo poo than cuts.

I'm not reading any of these horror stories. I have a sensitive disposition.

As for baby food, we are trying baby-led weaning, where we give babby food (cooked broccoli, carrots, and dwarf corn, sticks of cucumber, blueberries, etc) to hold, shove in his mouth, and gnaw on, so he gets used to different textures, and eats what he wants and when. We are also giving him stuff like grated pear and baby rice with a spoon, but only for as long as he seems to want it. When he doesn't want any more, we stop. The idea is to give him control over what he eats, so food doesn't become a battleground.

Agreed on horror stories and food policy. We did something pretty similar with our kid, and not only did she wean herself without incident, but now she'll eat anything that tastes good. I'm so proud of her because she hasn't picked up any stupid food hangups from her mom (mustard, pork, eggs, fine cheese) or me (seafood). Last night we had chicken curry, upma (Indian curry semolina), and for dessert a deconstructed/sloppy trifle with angel food cake, creme anglaise, bananas, and blueberries. Kid ate it all gleefully.

Not cooking related either, but I was on an oil rig when we hit a pocket of natural gas. One of the gaskets on the well head failed, so we had natural gas seeping into the air. For those of you who don't know, natural gas is odorless. The sulfur smell is added by your utility company so you can detect it if it leaks in your house.

One spark from the engine on the rig and there was a huge explosion. One dead, three injured. Skin grafts hurt like a bitch!

I almost feel bad for her when she goes to school and has to eat cafeteria food.

I've been pretty lucky when it comes to kitchen injuries. I get small burns and cuts every so often, but they're quickly forgotten. Worst injury I ever had was a steam burn from a tea-kettle, that was purple-blue for weeks until it blistered and fell off.

He just wants someone to shake his corks, is that too much to ask??


Dear E/N,
Recently I got my performance review, and I have been evaluated as a 4 out of a 5 by the top management, a loving 4 out of a 5...

The evaluation is according to behaviour and results, ok - I bring the results, but I do not score high on the "get along" parameter... I do not get it!

Being in this company is kinda like being present at a midget tossing competetion, tossing the midget the farthest, without any serious injury, high-fiving your friends for grabbing the first place, and shouting "we tossed that loving midget", upon which silence fills the room... Everybody who has tossed the midget before you looks at you with a frown, and then someone pulls you aside and tells you sotto voce "you're supposed to call them 'little people'" while standing under the neon lit sign stating "Midget tossing competition".

Hope you americans don't get my analogy wrong, I did not mean to offend in any way, and now you can go back to watching your little people porn again!

Anyways - I scored low on the "Get along" factor... (I scored a 2 out of a 3), so I decided it was complete bullshit, because my behaviour is loving perfect! And challenged it!

My boss told me that I have a tendency to run over people when they are not agreeing with me.

I promptly asked him "what people?" and he stated a few examples...

Then I informed him that I didn't see them, and besides, if they chose to stand in the middle of the tracks, then why the gently caress blame the train, or the tracks? I mean - would you slap a bullet train on the wrist, for being impolite when running someone over?

I didn't even register they were standing there!

His answer was 'Precisely!' - which I found hillarious!

Then I asked him if there were extra points for the ability to use the word "Skin flute" in a presentation, and all was good again!

Now I will go and question hot SVP about the future of her department, and not forget to harass my German guy for WWII.
