I used to make pot pies.  I'd make a big batch of dough and roll it out, layering it with wax paper, until I assembled the pies.  I had a bunch of those little individual aluminum pie pans.  I used three fillings:  I'd use leftover rotisserie chicken, cut into cubes, & would make a basic white sauce (butter, flour & half & half or milk), and sauté some diced onions, celery, carrots & mushrooms with some frozen peas.  I'd layer these into the bottom pie shell, and then cover it with the second, poking holes in the top.  These freeze well and take about 45 minutes to bake (from freezer to table).  They're so good.  I'd make a ton of them at once, & freeze them, as they were so labor intensive.  But they beat the pants off anything you can get at the store.
Good idea Six. I'm going to steal this idea from you. I normally cook big and put into small containers then into the freezer. When I hit the road, I grab 2 or 3 (normally, I'll have a variety of choices), with a few bottles of water, into the cooler then out the door. I also fill a large thermos with coffee.

I am considering buying myself (and my daughter) this:

Because it can do this:

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

1st snes soundtracks
2nd -delay-  "detachable penis"
3rd PHASER

The majority of what he says is a foreign language to me.

You could certainly sweep Adult Swim's anime jazz.

When he gets into the guitars I hear Akira yamaoka. Silent hill sounds

Rock snare is straight up Duke3D

Yeah, come get some!

Power rock took me back to the 80's.

Push it to the limit!

Okay, now we're going vampire with the organ. No cruel angel's thesis? WEAK

That video is unavailable.

That piece of kit is all that and then some. I know that outboard is really old hat these days, but you're always going to need a controller so why not have one that is primary to a workstation rather than the other way round.

I, in a rush of want not need, purchased a Sony Walkman NW-A55L and decided to play around with High Res music.

  the voice of the you tuber man is awesome

My mom despises him.

I had loaded up a video about when the recording industry attempted to pivot to SD cards, they made a screenless mp3 player that I found interesting, so I was sharing it with her, and she absolutely lost it.

Was pretty funny to watch.

I really enjoyed his prison tech video, and his practicality. He doesn't suggest people go out and buy an original blue walkman, like the youtube clickbait teenagers, he surveys a range and explains how to check a used device to see if it actually works.

My favorite video of his was one where he got a tape deck out of a japanese market, and figured out the voltage the device required was different from what it was getting, rendering most of the music "haunting" is a good word?

He has a voice like a "voice over" person on the TV

I have a YouTube channel! If you look closely you can spot a theme.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI7s3gARp0hOs37Q7ni-Nsg

There's a guy on youtube who covers, bit by bit, Interstate 95 but without the musical accompaniment.  I think I'd be more likely to take a nap watching the I-95 series.  This part of Virginia is pretty but boring.

There is real value in videos like that, while they may not be the most exciting thing ever, they are a snapshot of a time and a place.

I once managed to date the fixtures in an apartment thanks to a 1985 horror movie. So many of the details just matched. (I had to order the shower door handle off ebay because they DO NOT MAKE THOSE anymore.)

The metal had cleanly snapped and was just lying in the tub. Far less exciting than the ghost murder in the movie.

I think I posted about it here, the Home depot employee I asked for help laughed and said "You won't find that poo in this town".

He was right.

Sadly his words were prophetic, I often have to make quite a drive or order online when I want things. Even our Walmart is barebones, and I thought they all went off a template.

I'm amazed that the Home Depot guy knew enough.

I just restored another lamp and just buying routine parts required me to go to a mom & pop hardware store, since the only sockets HD had were in Liberace fake gold that was so tacky I'd have had to spray paint it just to tone it down enough that it wouldn't make us want to run the other way.  I paid a bit more, but I got what I needed and they had more of a selection.  Since the HD owner likes to send money to Trump, I'm as happy as I can be when I can avoid giving him any more.
