    I was considering seeing Avatar, but then I remembered what everyone said about District 9.

    "So deep! So much rich subtext!"

    "The characters were so rich and poignant. They'll really leave you thinking."

    And the big one: "Best movie ever!"

    Then I went and saw an uninspired, trite, vapid film that only left me thinking, "This is what Peter Jackson spent his time doing instead of making the Halo movie?"

    With Avatar, everyone (or at least this one person) is saying how it sucks and therefore, you should go see it...or something.

    I didn't want to see Avatar on opening day, since the crowds would have been insane. Kinda wish I had dragged myself out to the Sherlock Holmes flick, though... Guess I could get off my lazy butt, or something. smile.gif

    Forgot to mention it in my previous post but I'm an incredibly lazy chef, and thus have collected many crockpot recipes over the years. If you're interested, just say the word and I'll message you a few of my favorites.

    Yeah I'm no fun am I? laugh.gif

    And I'm already using it to make my 4-bean chili (soy, pinto, kidney, black). Going to pick up some veggies (pasilla pepper, red onion, and tomato) to put into it tomorrow once the beans have softened and soaked up the spices (cumin, curry, chili powders, and garlic salt).

    And I didn't mistake the cinnamon for cumin this time ^^.

    I don't think I would like to see a Halo movie. i bet it would be like Spacetroopers without the comedy, and there wasn;t much in spacetroopers without the comedy.

    I have to admit that put's the brakes on the favorites I had in mind, but that's due as much to my own dietary restrictions as your fun factor. I'm allergic to poultry so a large proportion of the meat I eat is pork. And then there's my chili recipe which uses both bacon and beer. wink.gif

    For Christmas I made grilled salmon with wasabi cream sauce, sauteed baby squid in garlic and soy sauce as polenta with gorgonzola cheese.

    For New Years I'll probably try and make Hainanese Chicken rice and polenta using cottage cheese instead of gorgonzola.

    EDIT: Actually, if I substitute a different meat for the pork will the recipe still work?

    I use polenta in a lot of itialian dishes, but one of my favorites is to get some premade stuff in a roll, smash it up, mix in a heap of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and milk for a dope Derri

    You might have to tweek the seasonings a bit depending on the meat.

    At least you don't have a milk, wheat or soy allgery. o.o

    Ah, crockpot cooking. If cooking is an art, then using a crockpot is like going Jackson Pollock to paint Monet. laugh.gif

    Chicken and pork substitute pretty easily because both have to be so thoroughly cooked. If you use beef, remember that fully cooked for chicken is practically incinerated for beef. With a crockpot though, just dump the meat in and make sure it cooks long enough.

    And if you're using beef, make sure to sear it up in some butter and/or oil before popping it in the crockpot. Brown equates to flavor as far as beef is concerned.

    That and milk (or some form of dairy) is in a lot a different dishes. A wolrd with out cheese is a world not worth living?

    I have at least 10 kids at my school with a dairy intolerance, what's the deal with all the food alleries anymore? Or maybe I never noticed it when I was a kid. o.o

    Assassin's Creed 2 is embarrassing. Like final half of Battlestar Galactica embarrassing. At least it plays fine. ODST on the other hand is probably the best Halo game made. Also I felt clever when I connected Mac the Knife with McDonald's Mac Tonight while reading The Threepenny Opera but then Wiki'd Tonight and it's in like the first paragraph so I'm not so clever I guess.

    ALSO it brings tears to my eyes to read D9 hate. The ten minute short film takes a dump on the feature film.

    For polenta I use the coarse ground meal since personally it had better texture than the fine ground ones. Sautee a finely chopped onion on low heat in a pot or saucepan until they sweat then add chopped garlic. Pour in 4 cups of chicken stock and then get everything boiling. Pour in 1 cup of polenta slowly while mixing so they don't clump together.

    Keep stirring everything until the mixture is close to lumpy mashed potatoes. That's when you add the cheese is small clumps, don't add it as one big lump or it won't melt properly. For 1 cup polenta I used around 150g of aged gorgonzola. Keep mixing until it's like smooth mashed potatoes. Salt and pepper etc. then you can serve it.

    Personally I'd use soft cheeses like gongonzola since they mix better with creamy dishes. Semi-softs like say mozzarela can probably work but it might make the polenta have a gummy consistency. If you want to use hard cheeses like Parmesiano-Reggiano you're gonna have to grate them into powder form before adding, and slightly less mass in grams than a soft cheese.

    Also goes without saying that being an Italian dish, use an Italian cheese. I was never a fan of French cheeses anyway. tounge2.gif
