I made vodka fries.

Baked just doesn't do the pie pan of grease justice.

It's a three-ingredient recipe. You need your French fries, then you top it with Vodka sauce. Next you melt mozzarella on top of it and broil it until the mozz goes crispy.

Wikipedia doesn't like it, so you get bitchy yelp reviews when you try to look them up. NO I DON'T MEAN POUTINE WIKIPEDIA, I NEVER MEAN POUTINE!

I remember eating these in New Jersey, we always had it delivered. It came in a takeout pie tin.

OK, turns out the search results are completely contaminated because Arby's put out a French fry flavored vodka.

Vodka sauce is like a creamy marinara. I know that sounds gross, but it isn't, I swear!

Also, a lot of the results make it wrong, they damn near bury the fries in sauce. You want to be light with the sauce, heavy with the Mozz.

Video Games / Don't buy Ubisoft DLC (Or Games)
« Last post by 8ullfrog on July 03, 2022, 03:59:06 AM »
I used to refer to Ubisoft as UbiSuck because of their draconian love of DRM, back when games came on those circle things.

I don't buy many Ubi games, I consider them overpriced at standard, and hilariously overpriced when it comes to DLC. They think $110 is a perfectly reasonable price for a PC game.

But they've proven themselves to be cheap bastards. They're shutting down multiplayer services for a wide swath of their titles, which is not unheard of. They are ALSO tearing out the DLC, root and stem.

So if you paid for it? Too bad, going away.

I bought a far cry pack a while back, and one of the affected titles is Far Cry 3. I know that's not a hot new title, it's nearing a decade since release, but I've not spent a lot of time playing it. I've got the base games up to 4, I have not purchased any of the DLC, and now I'm glad for it.

I'd been thinking of buying Ghost Recon: Wildlands, but if I do, I'll steer clear of it's DLC. Sunset policies are a nasty little fly in the ointment, and we now know that Ubisoft doesn't flinch to pull that trigger.

EA is also cutting off "extras" soon, so if you've got anything over there, go grab it.

It's almost enough to make a man don a black tri-corner hat.


UPDATE: It gets worse. Ubisoft have now pulled one of the Assassin's Creed games off of Steam - Even if you've paid for it in the past.

The way previous steam de-listings worked is a direct refutation of this practice.

Specifically, store pages were "unlisted" and titles were no longer available to purchase, BUT you could download the game as many times as you like, as the files were hosted by valve on their hosting service.

The new Ubisoft decision is "No, we've decided to take it away from you forever."

I have heard the reason why so many classic titles never see deep discounts is because they're "Dead software" to the publishers. They don't want you playing, say, Far Cry 3. They want you playing Far Cry 6, or whatever they squeeze out next.

We only have the shitty acorn looking ones. :(

But I did buy those. It's like you're psychic.

Key limes are wonderful.  But they are a pain to squeeze.  Use a garlic press.  I use one when I make the lime marmalade.  Trying to squeeze those little suckers is a great way to get a wrist injury.

Turns out I wasn't eating mesquite turkey, it was cajun turkey.

Not sure how I made that mistake, but this cajun turkey sucks!

I always admire the ingenuity you put into making the most out of limited ingredients.  You have come up with some creative dishes over the years. 

Cooking with whatever is on hand is a useful skill.

That's the thing. There are a bunch of "Infinity Stones" story arcs that have occurred over the years, usually with Adam Warlock being the hero leading the charge. The whole Scarlet Witch "House of M/No More Muntants" story arcs occurred long ago and Wanda pretty much disappeared for years after, well prior to the this "Endgame"-inspired story arc.

I tried to give up on the MCU trying to stay true to the Marvel Comics canon but it still ruffles my feathers at times.

Post Thanos, any "blink" behavior would likely result in an immediate death sentence to avoid future "blinks".

I don't like shredding chicken, so I bought some of the Jack Daniels shredded chicken.

I was weirdly disappointed. I thought it would be BBQ, like the diablo, but it was more teriyaki flavored. It was... confusing.

I admire the effort you put in all your meals. When I'm cooking, it's more "Slap poo together randomly and hope taste good"

You take the time to do it right. We're like golly up and gallant. (With you in the gallant role)
