  1. Yes, I just went back and watched it again too and I’m not seeing this strident, aggressive change. If she had said it in English no one would have remarked on it. It was the Spanish that unsettled people. Garga said: “I also didn’t like when she was speaking Spanish. (Yup. I said it). If she was going to do that, they should have translated it on screen. I have no idea what she said.” The parenthetical admission implies that she knows this is a bold, “politically incorrect” thing to say. The fact of the matter is that a lot of Americans - usually white Americans in my
  2. Aggressively speaking Spanish? 😂 She was reciting some of the Pledge of Allegiance. 🤣 I don’t see the problem, except for xénophobes. But brace yourself people : majority minority is not far off. ¡Azucar!
  3. I just use bar towels: they don’t get caught on stuff, I can tuck them in the string of my apron or over my shoulder so I don’t lose them, I can drop them quickly if they get wet so I don’t burn myself. If I did go with real potholders I would use the flat type for the same safety reason - nothing worse than trying to shake off a burning hot mitt.
  4. Oops. I should learn how to read. Sure, you could just simmer it with a dash of wine vinegar and add salt and a dash of cayenne and I bet it’ll be tasty. 👍🏼
  5. In general, the way to improve flavor is by adding salt, fat, or acid or some combination thereof. Do you want a critique of your recipe or just ways you can add flavor? I hope both. Your recipe is very one note: lots of sweetness and lots of garlic (I guess that’s two notes). Although the tomato paste-tons of garlic-tons of oregano trio does seem pretty typical for American renditions of Italian dishes... Oregano isn’t traditional with this dish - usually you would find fresh rosemary, and perhaps some fresh sage. Maybe you are on a low sodium diet, but if not, it’s important to us
  6. Methyl cellulose. Brand names Lineco or Elmer’s Art Paste. Both can be found at art supply stores and probably on Amazon.
  7. Wow. That’s two Ultimate Frisbee teams worth of kids. 😵
  8. I kinda wish they’d waited though. Won’t they all just be pardoned now?
  9. Welcome back. I’ve missed you and wondered how you were doing. Thanks for the update. Take it slow.
  10. I use a commercial one - you know, big yellow bucket on wheels with a separate wringer attachment with a lever for squeezing out the rope mop - but that might be overkill for a small place. I’ve never found a better wringer though.
  11. Have you looked at ADA kitchen designs? A quick google search should bring up some photos.
  12. I think I might need a 12 step program. I know you warned me, @Spy Car, but I thought I could handle it. It started with turning on the machine to get that one spot I missed, but then since I had it on, I might as well clean that old chair, and I’ve been meaning to take down that wallpaper and steam would be the easiest way. I knew it was bad when I wailed a little bit when the machine ran out of steam halfway through a project. But I’m only stopping until it cools down enough to refill. I just need to clean a little more and then I’ll stop, I swear.
  13. My mad day of cleaning draws to an end, and I am taking my prune hands to bed. I cleaned bathrooms and the kitchen. I found that the machine’s running out of steam generally coincided with my running out of steam, so having to wait until the machine cooled down to refill it wasn’t a problem. I did notice that by the end of the day (okay, night) the steam no longer seemed as hot and was putting out a lot more water. I did read some reviews that mentioned that the steam wasn’t hot enough, but they seemed to have this problem right out of the gate. I’ll try it out again tomorrow an
