    - i can't make drinkable coffee other than instant.

    - i haven't figured out a good way to make hash browns without the potatos being burnt or raw or both.

    - if i haven't been introduced to you twice while sober or 5+ times whilst inebriated, i probably only have a vague idea of who you are.

    - even if i know exactly who you are, i may not remember your real name.

    You've always remembered both who I am AND my real name. Let the shame lessen, my son.

    BBB's Shames:
    • Highschool dropout
    • Never had a driver's license
    • My stunning good looks make others feel bad :)rolleyes: )
    • Sometimes afraid to follow my dreams

    ..but I can make a mean pot of coffee, and there are LOTS of great things about me.


    Trying to keep the balance.

    what does blanche-ing potatos mean? what does it accomplish?

    i know when you blanche veggies, you boil them and then throw them in a bowl of icewater to stop the cooking.

    Blanching is partially cooking something in boiling water (usually). In restaurants, or for certain types of food, blanching cooks something let's say half-way, and the food will then be cooked using a different method.

    Vegetables with different cooking times which are to be added to the same dish are often blanched ahead of time so they a) are all at the same approximate state of doneness, and b) retain their vibrant natural colours through blanching and proper cooling techniques.

    In the case of homefries, blanching cooks them, but then you transfer them into a pan for crisping, seasoning, etc.


    MMmmmm.. Blanche.

    Today, I'm ashamed of only one thing. The fact that I might have needlessly hurt someone. It's not a specific event. Just a general notion. This would be the only thing I'm ashamed of.

    Today, I am not ashamed to have fears, and I'm not ashamed of my failures and weaknesses or my hatred and my disdain for anything. I'm not ashamed to be cynical or pessimistic.

    Today, I feel no need to apologize for myself.

    Tomorrow might be different.
    But today remains, how I should feel everyday.

    so if i were to prepare my potatos (peel and slice), then blanche them by plunging them into boiling water for say 3 minutes, then fry them up hash brown style....this would lead to less burnt and soggy potatos?

    Hash browns are better with skins.

    the particular potatos i have in mind for this exercise have grown legs and are trying to walk away, so some peeling is required.

    Holy fuck, I'm laughing so hard right now.

    Not at your post per se ross, but the fact that mel's post right above yours is so serious.

    And it reads like Ross: "NEXT, so back to my potatoes"
