Anyone here do sous vide cooking?
Amazon had a promo code for $100 off the $200 Anova unit the other day.
Amazon.com: Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator - 120V Circulator Cooker (Black): Kitchen & Dining

Mine comes today, but being a serial griller/barbecuer I'm still on the fence about even using it.
Plans were to turn tough, cheaper priced beef into tender beef, searing over charcoal on a grill afterwards of course.
I'd still pan fry or grill my Spam though. :P
That's... interesting.

Ouch. Our "summer" has been a bit on the cold side, but I didn't know it was quite this much snow in the mountains still. Yes, they've had another 3-4 meters the last few days, but...

This is the top of one of the ski lift masts.

That is some serious snow, would make it difficult to get to the store to buy a 3K.

Or really hard to get out of the store, if you'd just bought a K-3.

They had a micro ice age over there once you know? About 500 years ago. Europe just does stuff like that every now and then.

I sat on the deck yesterday evening sipping Jim Beam on the rocks and watching a pair of tufted titmice trying to mate.
Well at least he was trying to mate, I think she had a headache.

Been to a few bars like that, Rob - guys hitting on someone and getting knocked back to the amusement of the local bourbon drinkers.
