foodie furs / Re: Home made bread. From traditional to no knead refrigerator.

Decided today to open a cook book I've had for more than 30 years. "From Julia Child's Kitchen". Wanted to see if there was a real version of the French baguette. Ever one I've seen on you tube is different. Not really a fan of this bread. Great curst and flavor. Awesome to eat with a meal. But full of large holes inside. Not that good for sandwiches.The book has a very limited,  22 pages out of almost 700. Only six recipes, section on bread. To my surprise there is a sandwich bread recipe. And I've learned something new by reading it. Most bread recipes call for the dough to rase two times. I can refrigerate the dough derring or after each rise. And freeze it after each rise. Never knew that. I've also learned something else. I didn't need to spend $$ on a few bread pans with their own lids. I could have made flat top bread like smarter people than me have done for a long time now. Put a flat pan on top of the bread pans and weigh it down.  :)

Trump day 293
President Trump is saying we shouldn't blame China for making
money any way they can. Is Trump really saying this after all
his campaign talk of how he plans to punish China for how
the way they take advantage of the USA? Sounds like Trump
has been fed a song and dance by China. Or perhaps a backroom
deal to benefit him or family? Sounds like a good conspiracy
theory some would put on Clinton.

Trump may think China will be nice if he is, but he will likely
find out later they don't care how nice he is. They will do what
they feel is good for them.

The secretary of state claims Trump is just making nice with a
tongue and cheek remarks. You can be sure if someone like
Clinton had said it the GOP would have likely called her unamerican. 

The GOP is still pushing the Trickle down economics idea. They
continue to claim business will pass along tax savings to their
employees. Well I have been around long enough to know people
in business are out to make money for themselves, and if there are 
stockholders, give them dividends to encourage more investment in
in their company. It's the CEO and board of directors who get bonuses
if the company makes more in profits. Now some people down line
may get bonuses, but it's rare to see the common worker benefit from
higher profits. Besides tax savings would hardly be seen as a reason
to pass it along in a pay raise.

If the GOP had their way there wouldn't be a minimum wage, much less
raise it. There wouldn't be any cost of living increases, or unions. The GOP
is about business, and ways to make money for business. The worker is
is only important as long as they are needed. Business will get rid of
employees any way they can. They will automate to have fewer workers.
Business is about making money more than jobs.

I know many business do care about their workers. I commend them
for it, but jobs, regulations and taxes is part of how society works. Some
politicians will use all three to gain power, and they work for the benefit
of those who help keep them in office. In the past one could run for
political office at a reasonable cost. Now it's so expensive politicians
spend a lot of their time raising money. It's no wonder they play
to the super rich for money.

The voter needs to watch politicians, and let them know how
they feel. Otherwise the politicians will do what they think is
best. Often that can be what's best for them. Money can
corrupt even the best of us. So we have to keep them in
line.

Here we have pizza Hawaii, which is about standard always with pineapple. But I can imagine it doesn't fit on every pizza. So basically it depends on what other stuff you throw on the tomato sauce.

Pizza-stuffed pineapple is the best idea,

That sounds gross.  :P

The only fruit that belongs on pizza is tomato, and it better be in sauce form :p

What about diced tomato on a pizza? I like that. :)


As for olives, I consider them a vegetable, not a fruit. And I am not fond of them on pizza, whether they are green or black.  >:(
As for pineapple, I've never had it on pizza before. I've been tempted to try from time to time though. Maybe one day I eventually will.
