What is your favorite food at your state fair? The Minnesota State Fair is going on right now and deep fried Sriracha Balls are big. Doesn't sound like they taste that great, though.

Is M/ck/Donald's the official restaurant of /ck/ - fast food?
Name a single place with a better burger. Just one.
Not to mention their nugs and fries. Unmatched.

Reminder that you should go there instead of the Jet's pizza.
Pizza has been known to contain excess amounts of fat and salt, while they (McDonalds) have budget AND health friendly items on our premium menu.

Can someone recommend me a decent budget espresso machine?
It must have a steam arm/wand.
Also, general coffee discussion.
>>
>>6839980
all $150-200 machine will pretty much be the same type of 15-bar semi-automatic machine. not a bad place to start tbqh. just pick a reliable brand and model with half-decent or better reviews. searching espresso machine on amazon should point you in to what you need
>>
All of them will have steam wands, but probably only good ones will have lever control with temp readouts.
>>
Assuming you have a decent enough grinder, then the only espresso parts I can think of within your operating budget would be the DeLonghi, a Cuisinart/Capresso, and perhaps a used machine off eBay.

In all honesty the quality of the grinder you have matters more than the actual machine (when speaking within the $100-250 price range). After that, moving up you'll see some noticeable differences, assuming your grinder remains the same exact equality.

Have you looked into a moka pot already? It's a pretty decent alternative to espresso, and although it's not true espresso, the Italians can vouch for its reputability. It's only $30 on Amazon too, for a Bialetti.
>>
>>6840484
Don't over estimate the size of the coffee it produces though. I didn't realize how thick the aluminum walls in the heating compartment was, so it appeared to produce more than it does.
>>
>>6839980
>budget espresso machine
No such thing.

Anything under $200 will make shit espresso and stop working in a year.

Light sesame oil is used mostly by south Indians, Bengalis and Sri Lankans. Get a lot of sesame seeds.Grind them up into a paste. Let the paste sit overnight. The stuff that floats to the top during that time is light sesame oil.
Dark sesame oil is made the same way but with the additional step of toasting the seeds.
There's also Burmese sesame oil, which blends the two. Where I live currently, light sesame oil is difficult to find (and seems oddly expensive when I do) and I've never once seen Burmese sesame oil sold here, so I approximate it by mixing dark sesame oil with peanut, sunflower or other lighter-coloured oils to decent results.

World Health Organization announces the main ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, is a probable carcinogen. So far it has been found in the urine, blood, and breast milk of humans. It is in the water table, the air we breath, and in the ground. It is being sprayed near schools, parks, and other population centers. Also it doesn't wash off your food. It is in your food. High fructose corn syrup, ingredients made of soy or corn, everywhere. There is a world wide protest to ban it to protect ourselves and our environment from any more harm. Is this what we want to leave our children?

The U.S. raises the limits every time some corporation realizes their shit is not working anymore and need to make it stronger.
>>
>>6840363
That is one of the reasons that limits are higher in the US, yes. My point being that most people don't understand how carcinogens work, it's not like you touch one molecule of it and you instantly get cancer. It's simply the function of cancer risk percentage related to dosage. However, because we don't have full data, it's hard to get an exact function, plus different countries have different guidelines as far as acceptable exposure levels and what percentage increase it takes before a compound is labeled carcinogenic.

Not bad for a late night snack. Probably not the most unhealthy thing since you cut half the carbs out if you don't eat the middle of the bread and the fact that it's sourdough and a thin slice help too. Eggs are always good for you as well. If you wanna kick it up a notch, throw some cheese on there before the egg finishes cooking and toss it in the broiler for like 3 minutes so the eggs cooks and cheese melts. Throw some avocado and maybe a bit of salsa. Some sour cream if you want it and you got an awesome breakfast or impressive late night snack if you've got a girl with you.

agree

alcohol tastes like shit if I want something nice I'll drink orange juice or something

pure ethanol tastes awful, it burns your mouth and throat and really has no flavour other than that sort of shaky sensation you get after swalloing

it's shite.

remember kids, ethanol is a drug. to get the effects you need the ethanol in your bloodstream. you do this buy absorbing it through your intestine

people really seem to not understand that alcohol is a drug and 'drinking' is a roa

beer tastes like shit. it's like sort of fizzy water with this tolerable -> absolutely disgusting aftertase, like why the fuck they even put hops in there? taste like shit yes I've tried a shitload of beer. craft beer is a fucking scam. pretentious faggots wax lyrical about the ibu and 'complex notes' after paying 6 dollas a bomb fucking dumbasses. it's just rotting barley or wheat or some shit

Glad you dumped your thoughts in a stream of consciousness style ramble. Too bad you're an idiot and I can't get the moment it took to read your dribble back. Seriously, try some antifreeze if you want something more suited to your delicate taste buds and throat. Also, I don't drink non-alcoholic beer because it tastes like shit.

Is there a type of wooden utensils that is best to buy?

I have some wooden spoons and a couple other wooden utensils, I prefer to use them much more over any plastic or metal ones, in most situations atleast.

I feel like hard wood opens would be better to buy, but I cant find any like that. Like hard wood spoons and forks and "all purpose"/butter knifes.

Anyone ever buy or use any?
