Discuss.


I'm a bad person. I've been reading people sharing stories about morbidly obese people acting entitled and complaining about 'thin privilege'. e.g., large people yelling at people in wheelchairs for taking the handicapped parking spot. There are multiple such stories.

I don't know if I can eat tomorrow.

The NSA thing, whatever it actually is, is not a partisan problem. It's an executive problem. Just like the war on terror: eternal violence, baby.

back to food, though: i should get fish sauce (the thai/vietnamese stuff) and figure out how to use it.

there's an exam in the class i TA tomorrow. it's during lab.

I'm a little behind in my work at the moment. I'm sort of gestating at the moment and not really feeling the part I should be working on: writing up prior research. whatevs, I'll get it done, though.

I finally watched The Royal Tenenbaums tonight. It's a shame I hadn't seen it before. I forget why I hadn't.

I have a giant pile of baklava.

Fish sauce by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #4 Mon Jun 10, 2013 at 10:26:05 AM EST
Try it in any recipe where you would use soy sauce, or just salt. Be aware that it can be powerful stuff.

it's smell when being added is stronger than it's taste once incorporated in a dish.

unless the dish is fish tacos. by the mariner (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon Jun 10, 2013 at 10:00:39 PM EST
i've always found the addition of fish sauce to a juicy fish taco brings both the aroma and flavor to new heights.

I can't tell if this is innuendo. by gzt (2.00 / 0) #9 Mon Jun 10, 2013 at 10:45:53 PM EST
I heard it's good for omelettes.

it can be used to good effect most anywhere.

is almost completely divorced from the flavor.

I know nothing else about their lifestyle, but I know that. Fish sauce smells strong.
