The Best Way To Make Pizza This Summer Is On The Grill (RECIPES)

The Best Way To Make Pizza This Summer Is On The Grill (RECIPES)

“A mix of 50/50 red wheat and durum flour. the red wheat flour has a chewier sort of gluten, while durum gluten gives more stretch. I use yogurt in my dough and use a stone on top of the grill. You get pizza on what is essentially naan bread. Naan recipe is ideal for the grill because it is meant to be slung around and stuck to the sides of a high temprature terracotta oven.”

Levi's CEO Chip Bergh: 'Don't Wash Your Jeans'

“yeah no problem. We never wash our jeans unless they're obviously stained.Even if they are a bit of lemon juice, soap nut tea, and vodka will take care of the spot, you just need to get that particular spot wet.

Jeans don't get particularly stinky unles you're using them for sweaty labor anyway. Even then, a hit with febreeze usually takes care of the stink. hang them up on the line for a couple of hours if you can, or mist them with a mixture of vodka and your favorite essential oil while you shower, that's all denim has ever needed.

The threads of denim are fuzzy and thick. They're thick cotton. Every time you wash, you scrape away at teh threads until they become too weak to hold the weave together. Not washing is the best you can do for denim. The fabric is only strong as long as the weave is intact.”

“it's unprovoked or actively hunting the kid, That's why. It was an attack. The dog did a shake and break, which is a type of bite designed to maim or a prey item's legs or neck. Dogs that do this to humans need to be put down. The alternative is put a muzzle on it, keep it locked up, restrict its freedom for the rest of its life. Killing it would be a service all the way around.”

“You are right on this one, although many just won't see it that way. If it happened to get that child's neck, I don't think it would have survived considering the damage it did to his leg. And it wasn't stopping there; what people perceived as the mother running away was the mother going around the front end of the car (which the cat does as well!) because the dog was coming back. It bit another neighbor who was trying to shoo away. I don't know what caused the dog to have that temperament, but it needed to be put down.”

“Haha. Ok, I go more. Sometimes blended families are not the result of divorce, but the result of death. In my family, My sis was barely 11 when mom died the four of us looked at my dad and went. Dude. Go play. So he married the youngest brother's best friend's mother. She had another son that was the same age as my other brother. There are no bigs and littles. There are bros and hos.

Stepsibs sometimes look so much alike that nobody questions until it's awkward.

What is REALLY unfair? It's what the grandparents are like. The step grandma took the stepbros on vacation to any country of their choice upon graduation from high school and AGAIN if they graduated college. My grandma bought luggage for high school graduation.

The parents change. They really do. Their priorities are different, their goals are different, and those might not include the kids. It might have been the parents' choices but everyone else is on for the ride.”

“well, one time, shortly after I found out that I was allergic to the cinnamon flavor in my toothpaste, I bought a box of peeps. At the time, my tongue's tastebuds that sensed sweetness were completely turned off due to the reaction with cassia oil. Usually they're just shy of being gaggingly sweet to me, but they just. . .tasted like. . .foam. It was the oddest flavor. I could smell the sweet but I couldn't taste it.”

“I'm just sayin'.

That phrase alone puts you into the file of complete jerks in my mind. That phrase is a way of being completely insensitive or outright cruel to someone. the reason people say it is because they want to feel better in their own mind about that thing that they just said that they knew was going to be taken badly but they said it anyway on the presumption that the other person will accept the minimalization and not cause a fuss. In other words, o say "i'm just sayin'" means that the person saying the phrase tagged onto what is usually a criticism or insult has thought through the questionable thing, processed it through their social filters, and spurted it out into the world knowing that it is wrong to say it, but saying it anyway and then deferring blame by pretending that the significantly cruel thing said is, in fact, no big deal.

You know what, it is a big deal. Stop it. It's not funny.”

“It's the smell and the bitter of them that is really bad for me. Brussel's sprouts are the worst of them, followed by broccoli. Kohlrabi, on the other hand, I love to eat raw with a bit of salt. purple and orange in any of them is better than the green version for some reason. In any case only kohlrabi can I stand to eat raw.

“so the average price of a house is $188k, but the median income is $44k. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't is used to be that you weren't supposed to be spending more than three times your annual. Just who is affording these things?”

“I'm pretty sure median income is a bit higher than $44k but using that baseline with a combined income of $88k you could get a house around $250k for "Responsible" buyers. Not the clowns the banks suckered into buying places worth 10 to 20x their annual income. Of course, most people buy what they want, not what is financially sound. I live in California where median income is north of $60k but median housing is north of $400k, just a bit out of whack.”
