Mercy me, those look exotic and tasty.
Why yes, you can pay off my old lease 2 months early and give me a way nicer model for the same monthly payment.
2014 Mazda6 Touring
Hello to my new, far less boring ride.
rich Corinthianleatherette (other wise known as vinyl) seating. I actually prefer it to real leather because it wears much better (that is it doesn’t wear at all, ever.)
- Bluetooth. Seems silly but super useful in real life.
- Back up camera. Seems over the top, until you try it.
- Blind spot monitoring. Nice to have an automatic double check when changing lanes.
eefficiency technologies. Lighter (but stronger) body, more efficient engine (even though more powerful), light weight alloy wheels (even though they’re a ginourmous 19″), etc. Combined mileage up about 4MPG over the last one.
I’m a firm believer in the Bacon Method. Today, I tried the foil variation:
I think I like. Makes things a little crispier in the same amount of time.
But, the bigger win might be clean up. After everything cooled down, I put the paper towels I used to drain the bacon on the foil, then balled them all up. The pyrex pan was pretty much clean!
3 Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches have been a hit our house lately.
The keys to these tasty morsels:
- sourdough (or ciabatta) bread.
- the secondary grill step. after getting things toasted on the outside, cut on the diagonal, and give them another minute or two cut side down.
Nice writeup on one superintendent’s process.
As many folks have heard me recant, in my public school days, from 6th grade until 12th grade, they had exactly one snow day in the Utica School District. There were a lot of days when they probably should have closed in there. The year after I graduated, they got a new superintendent and 10 snow days in that single year.
