I'm reading a book set in Russia that features a penguin. Just in case, you know, that's of any interest.

Being that he and I have Pittsburgh connections, I would guess he's meaning the Penguins hockey team that has a playoff game today.

What's your Pittsburgh connection, OBB? You live (near) there?

The penguin in my book is called Misha. He likes to be toweled off after swimming.

ah. I suck at english transcriptions. There's also a penguin russian course book! It's supposed to be really good.

I like the pimsleur course. It's audio only, and expensive. But i'm hoping that if I get used to speaking it more, then I'll understand the grammar rules better. You can buy the demo at bookstores for not very much. It's like the first few lessons. You'd learn a few basic phrases from that.

I have that 10 minutes a day book, I don't care for it. But some might. My 2 favorites are this and this. The last one, I got lucky on. It's an old textbook I found at a used bookstore.

I live sort of near Richmond Heights (I'm east of there).

Too bad you've already been proven real, or else I could vindicate you, too. Minxy beat me to it.

Hee. What's the morning star bacon like? Chewy, crunchy, crispy? Since I've been trying to get back in shape, I've gone back to a mostly veg diet. Being that bacon is the sole meat product that I missed and actually brought me back to the "dark side" for a while, I'd be happy to find a solution that satisfies the "urge." FH is also a big meat-eater and he's been eating mostly veg with me. We had morning star breakfast sausage this morning and it was pretty good. Even he liked it!

Just found this online. It's old and I shouldn't post it. But it's so funny, especially the very end:

Damn, what a workout. I just wrapped a ball of sfogliatella riccia dough to rest overnight.
Working off a European recipe, so I had a hunch that high-gluten flour would equate to my King Arthur AP, since it's a fairly high protein flour compared to any other AP flour, and European flours used for pastry tend to be fairly soft. Well, I still decided to put in half bread flour. Dumb. With the bread flour being so absorbent, I needed to add a lot more water than the dough called for and it was a mess. Into the garbage it went. Scaled another batch with just AP. Still needed a bit more water, but not as much. I got to a point where the dough just felt right, even if it didn't look it yet. After about 10 minutes of kneading, it was still dry. I just kept going, and what do you know, eventually it was starting to come together into a nice stiff dough. Well, after at least 30 minutes of kneading, I'm sweaty, smelly, hands caked on with some dough, flour on my clothes, but damn if I didn't knead that dough into beautiful, silky smooth submission! I'll remember this when someone tries to say that you can't do stiff doughs like bagels by hand. Like hell I can't!
Can't wait till tomorrow when I slather the dough with lard and fill it with ricotta and my candied fruit.
