    Karl's review of Bird's eye potato waffles:

    They good

    I'll have you know they're waffley versatile


    They go well with hot sauce as a snack.

    I'm basically Gordan Ramsey at this point.

    Butter, a thin layer of marmite then a layer of cheese, chucked under the grill until it's all bubbly (or microwaved for 30 seconds when you're in a rush) is one of my favourite lunches

    I use the cold water pasta method. It’s so much faster and better. Not good for long, thin noodles but great for stuff like ziti, elbows, etc.

    And much less water.

    *googling intensifies*

    @Karl, it's pretty amazing.

    1) Throw your dry, smallish pasta in a pot (i.e. ziti, elbows, penne, bowties, etc.)
    2) Fill with cold tap water up to about an inch above the surface level of the pasta (it helps to kkind of make a level surface with the pasta before adding the water)
    3) When water boils, decrease heat to maintain a simmer. Remove the lid, stir and cook for 4 minutes 30 seconds or until al dente.
    4) Remove pasta with spider.

    It's pretty amazing and the remaining water is awesomely starchy because of the smaller water-to-pasta ratio.

    It's also so much quicker.

    I basically hate using the normal method nowadays. I avoid pasta like spaghetti because of how quick and easy this is. I love how the pasta comes out.

    Make sure you use a large spider, like a tarantula. It picks up the pasta much easier than a tiny spider.

    Gotta admit, I wasn't expecting quite the intensity of the reaction to that frito pie video. But I really should have done, considering it's one of those regional specialties that people have strong feelings about.

    I'll put myself on the chopping block by admitting that I didn't think eggs were a bad idea, but I'm the kind of person who will make a leftovers omelette using nearly anything.

    I have borne witness to an entire room of coworkers getting into a heated argument just about what the name of a frito pie is, let alone its composition.

    This morning I made a breakfast sandwich and it wasn't too out of the ordinary, an egg, a couple slices of smoked ham, some crunchy leaf lettuce, but instead of the sliced Muenster cheese that i have in the fridge, I spread on a layer of Merkts sharp cheddar cheese spread. This is the stuff that comes in a little tub in the deli refrigerators at like every grocery store I've been to, it's akin to pub cheese.

    Let me tell you, that stuff really works well with eggs and ham, delicious sandwich.

    I honestly don't think it would have gotten my goat as much if it was someone familiar with the original food chopping and screwing it. But you can't ignore the composition of a regional dish while simultaneously saying "I know, right? That's just how they do it here."

    Well, this is the same man who was intending to do a show where he traveled to other countries and taught them about how they were cooking their regional food incorrectly.

    I wouldn't use vegemite as a peanut butter replacement just in general terms. And what veldrin said.

    Vegemite is pure umami. It is like a jar of mashed beef stock cubes.
    Ideally pasta should be cooked in plenty of water with a fair amount of salt in it. Pro-gastronomists (ie, scientific chefs) generally cook their pasta in shitloads of kosher salt (like, a tablespoon for a half-gallon of water). Absolutely don't do that with iodized salt though.

    JKLA says you don't need a lot of water. He cooks long pasta in this vid in a half inch of water in a skillet and talks about why you don't need a lot of water for dried pasta.

    There are milk dispensers in Slovenia, as means of allowing small local farmers to more cheaply get their product sold. You can buy a bottle on the right side there if you didn't bring one with you and then have it filled&sealed. They even have the farms the milk is from listed right on the front.

    Fark. I ran out of vegemite two weeks ago. Damn this current travel environment.

    My high school chemistry teacher used to give us take-home assignments, and he'd knock off ten points for every day you were late turning it in. However, he had a whole flat of these little jars of Vegemite, and he'd reinstate ten points for every heaping spoonful you ate in front of the class.

    Every time an old jar ran out and he had to open a new one, he'd crack the seal and dramatically sniff it like some kind of yeast pervert while we all screamed and groaned.

    Man, I need to give Mr. Jones a call some time, he ruled.
