as bad as it was, i guess 2020 could have been a lot worse.
what is bad is that that pandemic created more isolation, 
and further strengthened the bubbles of social media.
feud between radical left and radical right are in a feedback loop that needs to be broken.

what is good is keeping hope alive.
a certain amount distancing from our situation, 
put it in historical context, and it aint so bad.

Are things really getting better, like the newspaper said?
What else is new my friend, besides what I read?

Can't find no work, can't find no job, my friend
Money is tighter than, it's ever been

Say man, I just don't understand
What's going on across this land

Ah, what's happening brother?
Yeah, what's happening? What's happening my man?

Are they still getting down
Where we used to go and dance
Will our ball club win the pennant
Do you think, they have a chance?

And tell me friend, how in the world have you been?

Too much SMH.

I know there are other complications and much still to do, but I'm really thinking it's time to have an open exit plan for this society.

It is easier to install a new kitchen sink and faucet than hold accountable a corrupt, self-serving President.

Kind of fun but not as good as the real thing IMO. You can go wild with the kind of cheese you use.

 

In the ongoing saga, I make this quite often... once a month probably. I normally wind up with extra, which becomes cheese dip for nachos the next day... add salsa, some Sambal Oelek for zing... it's awesome. I recently made some starting with pepper jack  and I got to tell you that's some good stuff. That suspiciously perfect creaminess is concerning for people who don't know, but it's great.

Augusta made some mac & cheese for a group potluck and people were moaning about it being fake. I said it's a 2-pound block of Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar that I grated myself and they all went for seconds. So you have to tell people it's real.
 
I'll have to do this again. Our normal is roux-based with a little Dijon, fresh bay leaves and smoked salmon, baked. 


 
It's odd that the recipe calls for sodium citrate as an emulsifier - mustard powder has been used as an emulsifier probably for centuries, especially in roux-based sauces like bechamel and in oil & vinegar dressings.  I guess the sodium citrate is a better emulsifier?

 
I didn't know that about mustard. You get a more intense flavour in the modernist recipe without the flour. They also have instructions for making melty American cheese out of any other kind of cheese. And there's a way of extracting all the flavour out of a shit-ton of cheese into milk for the sauce, but I was like, ok, pretty good but a lot of expense and effort for not much food.

Fettuccine Alfrankfurter with Parmesan and butter is a favorite at my house, even with people who say they won't eat cured meats (more than once a month).
