I am not creative in my titles for threads, but I am really missing the daily randomness of the previous threadkillers. Can someone start a new one? I'm sure it won't be hard to come up with a better title than mine!!!

My heart is broken from the last one, bargoo got the last post before it was closed. She's The Threadkiller.

But, in the spirit of random knowledge, a Ruby-throadted Hummingbird weighs one tenth of an ounce - that's the same as a U.S. copper penny.

One day many years ago my daughter, about 6 then, had a penny in her hand. I asked her where she got it. She said at the store (liquor store where I ran in with my kids to buy cigarettes...yea I know bad example) She said the plate said "take a penny so I took one" :D

Curious minds want to know.

Well, trucks anymore have auto transmissions, so you don't have to actually work your gears. You can just choose which gear to lock in to prevent the trans from going to high when going downhill or keep from skipping up into 2nd gear when going uphill then dropping back into first and spilling your load all over the road.

But, when I was a oiler/fueler I drove a standard trans/diesel lube truck. I didn't have a trainer, but I had driven standard trans cars all my life. Turns out you shift a whole lot more in a diesel than a gasoline powered rig b/c the power bands are shorter. Took a couple of weeks for me to figure it out. From what I hear, most of those trucks are going to auto trans too. Now, even an idiot can get by in them. But they still tend to tear stuff up b/c of lack of quality training in the general operation of equipment.

OK. Now that we've bored the living **** out of everyone with this yap...

Back to the insanity!!!

speaking of tequila...

Tequila is the national beverage of Mexico, and usually consumed for celebrations. The Toltex Indians discovered tequila as a drink more than 200 years ago. Agave plants thrive in Tequila, Mexico where conditions such as altitude and climate are perfect for its growth. It takes the agave plant 8 to 10 years to mature and be ready for harvesting and distilling. To actually make the tequila, the green outer leaves are sliced off, leaving the large agave "pinas" or pineapples to be processed. The average worker can prepare only 200 plants a day because of the intense heat and the difficulty of the procedure. One plant can produce 5 bottles of tequila.:o


and some other random facts I chuckled about while trying to find more about tequila...

GOT IT ~ TASTY TEQUILA and TRI-TIP RECIPE


Plan ahead to marinate your tri-tip roast at least two hours before grilling time. The marinade contains tequila, sesame oil, mustard, balsamic vinegar, and garlic for optimum flavor.
Prep Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients:
3 to 4 pounds beef tri-tip with most fat trimmed off (a little on the bottom side is good)
3 Tbsp tequila
2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Preparation:
Mix tequila, sesame oil, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and place in a large zip-top bag with tri-tip. Marinate at least two hours before desired grilling time.

Grilling Method: Pre-heat gas grill to 400 degrees F. Place meat on grill top-side down for 3-4 minutes for nice grill marks. Flip over and reduce heat slightly - close lid, if possible. To be prepared for flare-ups, keep an open beer by the grill and use as a 'fire extinguisher.' If no flare-ups occur, then enjoy the beer yourself! Cook for 20-25 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center reads 135-140 degrees F. for medium. Slice thin and enjoy with a fine Cabernet Sauvignon.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Angie and I had a great TURKEY TROT this morning, were able to avoid the rain, get in over 4 miles of exercise, have coffee, see friends, make a bunch of kids :) by allowing them to pet the spoiled ones ;)

Went to my ex-wife's house for amazing food and visits with family and friends. We all brought dishes.

We will all be eating leftovers for nights and days....

turkey, spiral ham, scalloped potatoes, mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole, yams, rolls, 2 different cranberry dishes, salad, cherry, apple and pecan pies, pumpkin rolls, lefse, wine and beer ;)

The best part was that most of these dishes were not made the traditional ways....which sometimes makes me :mad: but new ways, less calories, and they were great!

I limited my portions but I know I was over....

Bill, your wife is right about oranges not being "ready" until mid-November. While we don't have an orange tree, we do have a Mandarin tangerine and we never pick them until Thanksgiving.

For those who are interested--my flank steak marinade. I found it on the internet years ago, thought it was from Lawry's, but when I go back there, it isn't to be found. So I have no idea who to credit for this.

In a large zip lock bag, combine the following:

1/2 tsp pepper
1 T parsley
3 T garlic
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp salt
1 T cilantro
2 T soy sauce
4 T vegetable oil
1 large flank steak

Marinate for at least 2 hours. Drain and discard marinade. Grill stead on medium for about 5 minutes per side (depending on thickness) and slice against grain into 1/4 inch slices to serve.

This goes really good with Hot Crash Potatoes.http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=151504

When in Norway my cousin invited us to dinner, she served reindeer, and a cloudberry dessert, both delicous! No lefse, though.

For a picture of a cloudberry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloudberry, and here's a snipit of their text:

Cloudberry
The cloudberry (Rubus chamaemorus), also called bakeapple in Newfoundland and Labrador, Cape Breton Island and southern Nova Scotia, is a slow-growing alpine or sub-Arctic species of Rubus, producing amber-colored edible fruit. The botanical name (chamæmorus) derives from the Greek khamai ("on the ground") and moros ("mulberry"). Cloudberry is the name for both the plant and the fruit. Cloudberry should not be confused with salmonberry, although the fruit looks similar.

The cloudberry grows to 10-25 cm high. The leaves alternate between having 5 and 7 soft, handlike lobes on straight, branchless stalks. After pollination, the white (sometimes reddish-tipped) flowers form raspberry-sized berries. Encapsulating between 5 and 25 drupelets, each fruit is initially pale red, ripening into an amber colour in early autumn.

Distribution and ecology

Cloudberries occur naturally throughout the Northern Hemisphere from 78°N, south to about 55°N, and very scattered south to 44°N mainly in mountainous areas. In Europe and Asia, they grow in the Nordic countries, especially in Finland and much in the Baltic states; sometimes in the moorlands of Britain and Ireland, and across northern Russia east to the Pacific Ocean. Small populations are also found further south, as a botanical vestige of the Ice Ages; it is found in Germany's Weser and Elbe valleys, where it is under legal protection. In North America, cloudberries grow wild across most of Canada / Alaska, and in the lower 48 states of the United States in northern Minnesota, New Hampshire, Maine, and a small population on Long Island, New York.

Well, now that no one cares why they haven't seen Tri-tip roasts in their local grocery, I can post the alternate names you may see instead without being concerned that I'm upsetting the balance of the thread by sticking to a TOPIC.

Beef tri-tip:
Other Names: Whole: Bottom sirloin butt, corner cut, knuckle cap, punta en triángulo (Spanish), Santa Maria barbecue, sirloin triangle muscle, triangle roast, triangle tip. Steaks: Coulotte steak, triangle steak.

However, I've never seen any of these names. It's part of the sirloin or round. It's popular in California.

And there's a picture here: http://www.chow.com/ingredients/257 and lots more information.

Yay for WebRover for setting an example of dedication, research, sticking to the topic, and, if I may add, ending a sentence with a 'C' (which isn't an 'e').

This is the tri-tip steak thread.

Gary, while Edward is nice, I think Angie and I would have issues with the actor himself--he went through a period of not washing his hair. For like a month. Ewww.

But maybe he does it so he doesn't go bald. Anyone want to experiment with that?

oohhh nothing about robert pattinson except that he is beautiful, and i loved the movie because i didnt expect it to be exactly like the book, so when it wasnt i didnt freaaaaaak out. haha

i wish i didnt have to go to bed so early so i could actually talk to all of you over there on the west coast :( i have a friend in tempe who LOVES to call me at 3 AM because she forgets that is late here. ugh.

anyways, i really want to see a waiter dance around with a giant margarita on his head...i would like to see robert pattinson do that actually...
