Food sealer is great. Always very useful with a sous vide. You can separate out the large costco purchases, season the meat you are going to freeze, vacuum seal, and then stick in the freezer.

When you are ready to use, set the sous vide up to the right temperature and then just drop in the frozen package. Don't need to thaw...can let it run for hours (just check for recommendations on temp and how long to sous vide for the meat your cooking...add an extra hour or two if it is frozen). Works on pretty much anything.

 

I don't make marinades or season before sealing enough. I've done some solid steak marinades and left it overnight and it came out fantastic with sealing ii all into the meat.

Id be open to it. Its fairly close right, couple of hours? Maybe i can get in there just sort of daytrip it and then turn back for home.

No...it's 5-6 hours drive out there and the best time to photograph those areas, especially the sand dunes, is sunrise.

When the hell am i gonna use an isosceles triangle anyway? Or talk about wuthering heights? 

"I’m now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.”

Sounds appropriate in these trying times.

I am debating whether to build a wood deck in my backyard. Upside is that it would let me use my yard, save money, and look good. Downside is I have never built anything like it before. But from YouTube videos, it looks achievable.

I would help you, assuming my wife said ok.  That way I could make jokes like “I remember when you had a little deck” and “your deck got a lot bigger because of me” and “your deck feels really good when I put my butt on it”.

And you could say “using your caulk was a good idea” and “you sure know how to handle your caulk” and “when you squeezed your caulk on my deck and the white stuff came out it really helped fill my crack”

You can verify phils deck is hard wood.

As a guy in the building industry, you are almost there.  Use "I get paid to rub my caulk all day" when you are prepping a house for paint.

Zion was dope. Drove through it when a buddy and I road tried to Salt Lake for a week long snowboard trip. Just a drive through, but looked worth a visit and spending more time.

Just watch out for the aerial and highway speed traps.

Thats what I have in mind, just a road trip. Get out and take a pic if something looks cool. 

But i think everything is closed now. Like red said, dumbasses like me all have the same idea.

Got off work today, hit the gym, then came home and did a second carpet shampoo. (Figure may as well do a second one while all the furniture is still moved).

...... so apparently no matter how clean the carpet looked after doing it this weekend, it was still filthy. That water bucket looked like chocolate milk after.

I swear im not that disgusting.

Also, new book arrived from Amazon. "Spillover". Meant to buy it a few years ago. Now everyone is reading it. About animal diseases and pending pandemics.... not sure when ill find time to read it, but will try my hardest to find some.
