Revisited ourworldindata.org/food-choice-vs-eating-local and apparently both pork and poultry are ~1/10th the emissions or beef.
Apparently sugar beets are a better source of sugar than either corn or sugar cane. Interesting...
Work finally implemented mandatory masks. Now I keep imagining I work with a bunch of Aiel.
Tangent: have reduced meat consumption somewhat. But have greatly reduced beef consumption in favor of pork (which I think is about a third of the CO2 foot print) and poultry (1/10). Haven't managed crickets yet tho.
As I was prepping supper this morning, it dawned on me that this evening will be the first non-slowcooker pork since the line speed restrictions were lifted. Had a talk with bae about cooking to the old 165F instead of the new 140F + 3min rest USDA guidelines.
It occurs to me that the head of the administration performing the roll backs probably doesn't care because he orders his meat cooked into shoe leather.
In fact, that's probably where the experimental physics should start their investigation. Cats. Oh, and I guess beds. 😁
Laurie Santos talks about percieved time famine. It explores idling and how our free time comes in smaller chunks, "time confetti". The encroachment of work on life as no one bats an eye texting for something.
This was a nice summary of my feelings of working a job where I am on call 24/7. If companies were serious about 24/7 support, they'd fill a position for nights/weekends. What willing 24/7 support means is "can we get free work out of you?"
Watched an episode of Nailed It! last night and felt my body get tense as Nicole leaned in to put the golden chef's hat on the first round winner. Just an interesting observation.
I should probably note this is the second time it happened. The first time my body tensed like that during Nailed It! was episode two, when the hat was revealed to be shared. It was instantly, just like every restaurant birthday hat before it, dubbed the Lice Hat in my mind.
Used the chicken stock today. It turned really flavorful. Recieved approval to do it again.
"Under normal circumstances there would be reporting into Joe Biden's voting record and the sexual assault allegations. For the moment, Joe Biden gets to be frozen in time." - Amy Walter on The Takeaway 15 May 2020
Yeah, just for the moment Phonograph Joe is frozen in time.
veggie ends I had on hand), sprinkle generously with salt, and forget for a long time. It actually turned out that amazing yellow color. Flavor seems pretty good, for something that had no prep, no research, and no experience to help it along.
I think it went well enough to try again. It may make whole chicken my goto choice when buying. - 2/2
I prefer my chicken to have skin, which usually means it comes on the bone. This time around I bought a whole chicken. It was a little work to break down for grilling, but the pieces cooked more evenly. And there seemed like there was so much meat left on the carcass I decided, on a whim, to attempt to make chicken stock.
It was so easy. Just filled the pot to mostly submerge the carcass. Drop on heat, fling in some sprouting garlic gloves, red bell pepper butts (the only - 1/2
Just a general instance with a catchy name.
