    I guess you would put your ships on scrabble tiles, unknown to your opponent
    and then if they put words on the board that sunk your ship they'd get bonuses on that word?
    Like extra double word scores or something.

    I kind of want to try this

    so like

    I have some supposedly super fancy soy sauce here

    and some supposedly bland kikkoman

    is there really any difference

    Have you thought about tasting them and figuring out if there is really any difference? Kikkoman is certainly better than sauces like La Choy, but there are much better soy sauces than Kikkoman. So yes, yes there is a difference.

    Gimme stuff. Please. And I don't just mean my Secret Satan.

    House of Tsang isn't exactly super fancy soy sauce. It's made by Hormel. I would put it in the same category as Kikkoman.

    Anyone have any good easy stir fry recipes?

    I basically combine a vegetable mix (broccoli, carrot, snow peas) with onion, peanuts, and an egg. Throw on some garlic ginger maranade and soy sauce at the end and serve over rice (brown).

    Seems like I could be doing it better though, particularly with the sauce.

    I like to make a honey-soy stir-fry sauce. You can buy honey-soy sauces/marinades or you can, amazingly enough, make it yourself if you have a) Honey and b) Soy Sauce.

    peanut and sesame is the superior mix

    Strato, forget that marinade. I find they are often way too sweet especially in plain vegetable stir-fry dishes. If you make stir-fry often, invest in some ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and if you eat seafood, fish sauce and oyster sauce. There is a mushroom-based sauce that is supposed to be similar to oyster sauce, so maybe look for that. I also have hoisin sauce and a concentrated dashi stock, but I make a lot of stir-fry. If you like the sweetness of the marinade you use, hoisin sauce will make an excellent replacement for it. If you toast some sesame seeds in the oil first, then add them later; that is also delicious.
    As far as basics, get some oil really hot. Throw in grated ginger, grated garlic, and chopped onions (the peanuts too, if you want). Get them translucent, then throw in your egg. Cook, then throw in your other vegetables. Add soy sauce, a shot of sesame oil (1-2 if dark, 3-4 if light), and if you eat it, a splash of fish sauce/oyster sauce. Hoisin or dashi can be added now. So can the toasted sesame seeds.
    Black bean sauce can also be used. If you like it hot, chili garlic sauce or sriracha. House of Tsang has Mongolian fire oil that is tasty, but be careful if you use sesame oil, things can get a little greasy.

    Gimme stuff. Please. And I don't just mean my Secret Satan.

    Also worth noting that when using sesame oil, use a very light hand. It is strong ju-ju.

    Bad news, fellow vegetarians-who-don't-pretend-to-not-miss-meat, Morningstar's hot dogs are apparently not coming back. This also includes corndogs.

    I'd say this is basically the worst news in vegetarianism in like a year.

    Ouch. They were actually pretty tasty.

    And it looks like it's because of unsafe packaging conditions? That's an even worse reason to go down.

    They used to be the only hot dogs I would eat. Everyone else's just sucked.

    But we made pigs in a blanket for a football game and I had to use the extra large Yves ones, and was really surprised how good they were. I think I got turned off of Yves dogs entirely when I mistakenly bought some of their tofu dogs once, which were fucking awful, because they were tofu dogs.

    Unexpected tofu is never appreciated tofu.

    I marinated and grilled up some extra firm tofu last week and it was pretty tasty, but you've got to see it coming and it shouldn't be disguised as other food.

    I'll keep an eye out for the Yves dogs.

    No! I loved MorningStar's corn dogs. I can't stand any other hot dog product, but man those corn dogs were good. We have a horrible supply of vegetarian/vegan products in this town as it is, now they are taking away even more. Boo.


    Dr. Z, I am looking for new marinade suggestions for tofu. What'd you use?

    Cool, thanks a lot! I don't eat seafood, so I will try out the hoisin.

    I wonder if veggie dishes at chinese restaurants usually use oyster or fish sauce? Maybe I don't want to know.

  • DrZiplockDrZiplock Registered User regular

    You likely don't.

    Hoisin is often referred to as "chinese BBQ sauce". Oyster sauce, while tasting nothing like oysters, isn't as sweet. Both have about the same color and consistency.

    Fish sauce? Yea, you'll know it when you see it. It's pretty powerful stuff.

    According to just the Chinese places around here, their veggie dishes usually don't have oyster sauce in them but their beef dishes tend too. But I guess if you're eating beef, what's the harm in eating oysters? Heh. Yeah, fish sauce will be noticeable. And if you are curious, ask them. When I was a vegan, I asked about everything. I would be more concerned about them sauteing/boiling things in some sort of meat stock before worrying about oyster sauce content.

    Ah, I've tried that marinade, Dr. Z. I think it's on their website.

    And for anyone who likes to use seasoning blends, for pete's sake, don't use Weber's Zesty Lemon Seasoning. It is so bland. It's awful.

    Gimme stuff. Please. And I don't just mean my Secret Satan.

    some people have netbooks or older computers and the ads slow the computer down

    especially when you have multiple tabs open

    plus the whole malware entering your computer through ads thing, which my avast has caught several times from legitimate sites

    I don't use FireFox, so I don't know how AdBlock works. There are several community-compiled filter lists for the Opera blocker, if that's the sort of thing you mean. The default block option is also at a lower level directory, too, so it knocks out multiple ads at a source.
