Didn't know bagels were supposed to be boiled before baking. How can you tell the difference?


TPBM knows how to make unleavened bread.

I know how to put the package and the other things into the bread making device and press the button. Does that count?

TPBM has more then one single function device in their kitchen.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...

Yes. Knives, forks, mandoline, spoons, bowls... nothing is single function if you're creative and know how to use them


tpbm is craving food that you can only get one time a year, even in this day and age


(note: when you boil a bagel it partially cooks the outer layer before baking, giving the proper ratio of chewy crust to dense interior, because not as much water can escape when baked. If it's only baked, it's just round bread. Trust me, if you've ever had a real bagel you can tell the difference)

Yes! My Sicilian mom and grandma would make cannoli at Christmas. We couldn't eat any until after the family dinner. Along with family and friends, we would have over 75 people coming and going at Christmas. and those cannoli they use to make are the best in the world!

Tpbm left the gun and took the cannoli.

No, but I am trying to figure a way to have a pet of some sort. Mostly one that would recognize me if I were in the room.

I do! I love heavy rain, thunder and lightning, high heat, blizzards, & hail. (Living in the Northwest, I usually only get the rain, and have to travel for the rest).

Well yes. But a truly communist nation hasn't existed since before the advent of agriculture. There are tribes... but they are being "saved" by christians.

I like about 65% dark, depending on the brand. The Boyfriend goes up to about 85% dark, the wife likes milk chocolate.

I do. Folks aren't supposed to photograph you, without asking, at a recognizable distance.
http://www.burningman.com/press/photo_guide.html

Do some folks flout this rule? Sometimes. So either know the moderate risk and accept it, don't accept the risk and wear a little bit of something, or wear something on your face or head that makes you feel less recognizable (sunglasses, a fun wig, a mask, a big hat, an animal nose--whatever you like. This is a common strategy). Or wear a merkin and pasties. :lol:

That is a factual statement. As long as you mean out in the public view. I however have been naked while doing other things, like sleeping.

TPBM has also never been naked on the playa.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...
