Gnocchi are big in Argentina

Category: Cooking/Food — Posted by Michael at 2316

And now the first new entry in the new category…

Gnocchi are one of the favorite Italian foods. They’re delicious in either a red sauce or my pesto sauce. I generally always request them as my birthday dinner.

After reading this blog entry on Emeril’s site, I learned something new. They are apparently very popular in Argentina.

New category – food

Category: Cooking/Food,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 2252

I figured that this blog doesn’t go in enough random directions, so I added another. 🙂

The new category is ‘Cooking/Food’. Cooking and food is one of my favorite hobbies. I just went back and added some of the old posts to the category, and i’ll be adding new ones in the future.

5 Years

Category: Life — Posted by Michael at 1843

Wow, can it already have been five years since the horrific events of September 11th 2001? It’s amazing when you think about it. It seems like just yesterday that I was at home sleeping and my father woke me up and told me that the World Trade Center and Pentagon had been attacked.

The terrorists tried to change the way that we live, and in that regard they succeeded.  But, it wasn’t in the way they expected. They pulled the country together and showed all the best in the American people. What’s more amazing is that the shock still hasn’t worn off either. The bright part in it all is that I think we can all be pretty sure we won’t let it happen again.

Onion Goggles

Category: Cooking/Food,Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 2032

I have just about the most sensitive eyes known to man. I also love to cook. This poses a problem when I have to chop onions. Luckily my knife skills are decent so I wind up chopping with my eyes closed. This, of course, is a bad idea!

Enter a good idea… Onion Goggles. Why didn’t I invent these? Thanks to Emeril’s blog, I found these. Too bad I can’t order a pair before I chop 9 pounds of peppers tomorrow for the luau!
