    I don’t ever remember my dreams. No matter how hard I try.
  • VersicolourVersicolour Member Posts: 6,848 Member Member Posts: 6,848 Member
    I have extremely explicit and “real” dreams nightly. Always have since I was a kid. I can feel pain in my dreams (I had a dream of being shot once and could feel the bullet actually going in, although with less pain than I’m sure one would experience in real life 😜), taste food and feel emotions.
    Freud would have a hayday with me, I’m sure. Lol.

    I have also had some very real dreams. Not nightly, but pretty frequently. I can say I've been shot, but I do sometimes fly (flapping my arms - it's a dream, it works there okay) and I can feel the exertion in my muscles

    I can remember dreams I had as a child! I have a very active dream life that I often seem to remember. Last night's was just bizarre. I even got up off a chair because someone sat too close and I was concerned about social distancing. I often dream these days I've forgotten to take a mask with me. I'm crazy when I sleep apparently

    That is a good dream, a pasta promotion specialist, haha! I had a weird, creepy dream of my mom's apartment being haunted and things floating about, last night. I always have more creepy dreams this time of year because of all the Halloween imagery everywhere. That's why I won't watch most horror movies because they give me very entertaining nightmares for months!

    Hooray for Friday!!!
    Ever have crazy dreams? Apparently I'm the head of pasta promotion for my area and some crazy gun owner wanted to hire me for something. His manager had no clue what the job was either. So does anyone want to hear about pasta I'm a pro apparently

    Yikes I don't like your dream. Those kinds of dreams aren't fun at all

    I'll be getting into my skating dreams soon because this was always the time of year we'd start competing. They're usually that my brother and I are waiting to get on the ice and realize we haven't practiced haha

    On my way to share your steak dinner

    For me the steaks need to be well done!!

    I would probably gravitate towards the NY Steak. Filet is tender, but that's about all it has going for it. Not as much flavor as a Ribeye or a NY Strip.

    But what I probably would ACTUALLY do is cut 'em in half and share so everybody got some of each.

    When's the last time you tried a proper medium rare steak? My mom cooks here steaks well; she admits that she actually doesn't like the taste of meat.

    I like to get charcoals going in the grill. Not too many. More if it's cold out. In summer, it only takes 12-15 briquettes plus a couple that burn while the chimney is getting all the coals hot. Pour the coals in the grill and let them settle down. Then like five minutes on one side, four on the other, then put on a plate with a little butter, tent with foil, let rest ten minutes..... I should have bought a steak. Nah. It's a rare treat.

    Did you see what I just did there? I guess I should have written it's a medium rare treat.

    Good morning all - happy Friday eve! Slept completely through the night last night for the first time since I can remember so maybe I'll be good and switch from coffee to water earlier than I usually do:)

    @AliNouveau - that sounds delicious. I don't think anyone around here offers meal kits. Are they like those mail order-all the ingredients and directions included you do the cooking meals?

    @cgrout78 - good homemade mac and cheese is definitely one of those comfort foods that I'll splurge on!

    @forestfreek - I'm glad I found this group for the same reasons you mentioned. Kinda prefer to keep my fitness and Tinder goals separate 😂 (JK!)

    So this kit comes with steaks or ribs, I chose steaks. It's for two people so you get two twice baked potatoes which you just reheat in the oven, asparagus, bread, salad and cheesecake. I added another dessert that is their classic signature dessert and a bottle of wine. We always figure these restaurants are trying to might as well bulk up the bill. They give you step by step directions for everything. They even give a little container of oil and salt and pepper, a container of steak spice and salad dressing. I'll post a pic when I get it tomorrow. I really enjoy cooking but these kits are kind of fun. I got a grocery store one the other day

    Steak seems risky as it's easy to f*&k up if you're not a confident cook though and then you've probably spent quite a bit! I'm a vegetarian but I occasionally make them for my husband and I spend the entire time staring at it willing it to not overcook :D

    Hahah get a meet thermometer. It'll make it perfect every time. I used my meet thermometer more for testing the doneness of bread though. Hmmmm

    Well, I hope we never MEET, because I don't want to be probed.

    I bought a nice digital set of thermister probes to use with the smoker. It has four probes, and you can set a target temperature. One of the probes can monitor the internal temperature of the grill/smoker. It has a unit that stays with the grill and a "remote" that gets a radio signal so I can monitor what's cooking from anywhere nearby. Since some things smoke only a couple hours and others smoke more like 14-20 hours, it's a really nice tool. Not very expensive, either.

    Steaks are super easy. Too easy. It's pork chops I have trouble with. Smoked loin; no problem. Try to put one on charcoal? Tough as a shoe. Maybe I should try again. Actually, I really want to run the smoker again soon, but first I have a few pounds of chanterelles to process and freeze. Oh. Yeah; sauteed chanterelles go REALLY good on a Ribeye.
