dry bean experiments III posted: Sat 2012-05-12 12:45:44 tags: what I'm eating
Last time, I went with 4 cups water for the "quick soak", which resulted in a mournful pour-off of some deliciously rich, meaty-smelling bean broth before rinsing and cooking. This time I put the dry beans in cold water and vaguely rubbed them through my fingers. Same as last time, but the idea is to hopefully release and rinse away some of the oligosaccharides, which won't happen between the soak and cook stages this time, so it was extra important to get that quick rinse in up-front. Drained and p... (...more)

Up @7:30, coffee, vitamins, 30 hammer curls, guild got asswhupped by ODK, picked up rent funds, laid in a half-supply of powersauces, egg+cheese and a toasted buttered sun-dried tomato bagel for brunch, sushi for lunch.

deduping in Access 2000 posted: Fri 2012-05-11 09:35:14 tags: tech

30 hammer curls before I showered this morning 4.0 mi / 56 minutes, ~540 kcal reportedly burned at 180# - but on weight-out, I found I'm more like 190#. Which doesn't surprise me, really - just buckling my belt the past couple days, it's obvious my weight has snapped back a bit. While I was making a mental day plan this monring, I was pretty sure I would hit the gym, and the gym is often followed by a Subway treat, but I resolved to do the $3 On-Cor lasagna in the freezer, instead of spending the $5 ...
