Chunks of lamb.

Good one by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 10:12:22 AM EST
lamb is hard to find in our usual supermarket, though once I bought lamb-burgers, and they were awesome.

costco ? by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 10:24:34 AM EST
They regularly have legs (de-boned, usually..) and chops (french dressed) in the meat/butcher area.. I've also seen some in the freezer section, but haven't looked closely at those..

No costco near us by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 10:27:24 AM EST
I do 90% of my grocery shopping in a small, crowded, lucrative Wegmans. I don't think they're in your neck of the woods, but check them out the next time you're in NoVa (or New Jersey, or north central PA, or upstate New York).

au contrarie by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 10:59:23 AM EST
various rumors abound about Wegmans buying the local grocer Ukrops..

(I'm amazed no costco near you -- thought they were in every suburban market..)

We have no Ikea or Trader Joes by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 11:02:17 AM EST
or Whole Foods near, either, though people say Wegmans is better than the latter two.

It is. By a lot by miker2 (2.00 / 0) #22 Sat Jul 18, 2009 at 07:49:43 AM EST
We have a Wegmans by us and they're building two more.  We regularly go out to dinner at Wegmans because they're cafe is good and we can now buy cold single beers to have with it.  Being that my girlfriend lived in upstate NY for a while, she loves the place.

The nearest wegman's by wumpus (2.00 / 0) #23 Sat Jul 18, 2009 at 09:26:31 AM EST
took over an entire mall (ok, maybe half of it. There is this little stub-mall sticking off of it). I can't imagine any area supporting more than one of these. I suppose that this is some sort of super-giant-size mutant, and not a typical wegman's.

I have 4 Wegmans within 5 miles, and 2 of those are within 1.5 miles.  All are doing quite well.  We shall see when the Walmart behemoth store goes in next door to one of them if that dominance continues.

overcharges charges a premium for quality food?

Yeah, but who doesn't? by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #18 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:41:37 PM EST
Their store brand staples are cheap, and kalamata olives are expensive regardless of who offers them.

I do think they try to differentiate themselves from  run of the mill stores with the premium stuff.

my WIPO by barooo (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 11:08:46 AM EST
Since I can't top-post at work (dunno why).

For grilling:
Slabs of pig.  E.g., a tenderloin.  7-min direct med-high sear on each side, 15 minute indirect at 300degrees, 5-10 minute rest.

For barbecuing:
ginormous hunks of cow, e.g., brisket.


man, i need a beefy taco now.

Weird idle by Phage (2.00 / 0) #9 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 11:57:06 AM EST
Doesn't the Kwak have idle adjuster knob on the side ?
Otherwise it's going to have be a pig of a job to remove the carb bank and lower the all the needles

Yes it does by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:01:10 PM EST
but I think the cables are preventing the butterfly from fully closing when the idle knob is out.

The tentative plan is:

  1. replace accel cable
  2. adjust throttle cables
  3. if that doesn't do it, recheck float levels
  4. if that doesn't do it, restrict the air flow, again.

Camera by ni (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:15:38 PM EST
I'm buying an M863 tomorrow, which I take to be the model just behind the M320. For both our sakes, I hope it's a good line.

WIPO: Sooooooy!

I've been happy with our C330 by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #16 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:39:05 PM EST
save for the mode selector know also turns it on and off, and I've turned it on several times when putting it in the case.

Kodak camera by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #14 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:28:40 PM EST
Just ordered a refurbed M893 from ecost for similar purposes but I haven't gotten it yet. I'm very nervous about the picture quality because, while SWHTL keeps talking about size and form factor and easy to carry and stuff like that, I just keep looking at those tiny little lenses and twitching.

SWHTL actually turned up her nose at the cheaper model because eCost only had it in pink.... I was all like "look, I'll put duct tape on it, make it look silver, wtf..." but she wasn't having any of it.

I know Canon and Nikon have good names by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #15 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:36:36 PM EST
and Radio Shack had a pink Nikon floor model on clearance, but she really wanted to knob on top. I figure what ever makes it easier for her to use is best, she has a good eye, and should develope it.

Agreed. I made a mistake when I gave lamb her by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #20 Fri Jul 17, 2009 at 12:44:57 PM EST
first camera - I handed down my once-$800 digital nikon (bought for half that as a refurb and now 8 years old) and I emphasized how she should be careful with it because it was a valuable piece of electronics.

The result was that she never uses it because she's afraid she'll break it. I figure a nice PoS errr P&S should ease that concern.

Asparagus.

Oh god. The lovely asparagus.

I could (and have) eat like a pound of grilled (or roasted) asparagus.

fish? by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #24 Mon Jul 20, 2009 at 06:33:46 AM EST
Like all fish is the same?
For grilling, definitely whole (well, gutted) fresh sardines.
