Kettle chips anyone? Never was a fan of regular potato chips, until I tried these. Can't get enough!!

Indeed! Their sharp cheddar chips for some reason brought me back to those TGI Fridays potato skins chips.. similar texture and taste.

Here's my temporary addiction. Publix sells this bag of assorted vegetables, and it has like, broccoli stems, green beans, onions, and mushrooms. Anyway, you take them, and put them on the grill or burner, heat some olive oil, and cook the veggies in the oil, and season liberally with Mrs. Dash or other seasoning. Keep them cooking until they're just bordering on burnt, as you want them to have most of the moisture cooked out. You want the water in the veggies to be replaced with oil and seasoning. Enjoy.

I know it's not a food, but right now I am temporarily addicted to Sim City 4. Greatest "video game" ever made.

Me too. Simcity was the first computer game I ever bought. I then got SimCity 2000, 3000, and now 4, and even societies. They are all great games, and I'll continue to buy them. I wonder when they're going to release a 5th version?

For the sake of my sanity, hopefully never. For the sake of playing awesomeness, tomorrow.

I have Societies too, and it's alright, just very different. It still prefer 4, though I did have 2000 when I was a kid for the Mac. I also have it on my iPod Touch.

Chicken Cesar Wrap, wheat with no tomato and Broccoli Pasta Salad at California Chicken Cafe.

If any of you live in The Valley or Hollywood and you haven't had this place, GO, NOW! Actually they're closed on Sundays, so go tomorrow...

Again sorry to break from the food theme, but I just found out that Banjo-Kazooie was released on Xbox Live Arcade. That (and the sequel) was my favorite game as a kid. I downloaded it today and needless to say, I'm hooked.

If it must be a food...ehhh, I've been eating a lot of Campbell's Chunky chicken corn chowder. It looks like a yellow dumpster, but it's only 200 calories a can and tastes pretty good. And filling.

Turkey Burgers.

Anyone have a recipe to share? I've been going with extra lean ground turkey with pepper, and serrano peppers. Simple. Maybe to simple. I feel like they're missing something.

That seems like a pretty good recipe. From what I have gathered, the most common problem people run into with turkey burgers is dryness, especially with the extra lean that you use, because you don't really want to undercook poultry. A good way to combat this is mixing some minced onions in with the ground turkey. Onions let off some water and add some flavor too. Also, love the Serrano pepper idea. Great for flavor, since extra lean ground turkey doesn't have all that much.

    • Let us know how it goes. 
    • Cost and time.   THanks..have to give it a try..just trying to get back into my set without investing $$ for the time being..TY!
    • From yesterday's round. Approach to the green was a little long, and my ball was sitting on the back fringe. Large pile of coyote shit between the hole and my ball. The putt was right to left breaking so luckily my line was maybe 2-3 feet to the right of the turd, and there wasn't much chance of rolling into it, unless I hit a terribly offline putt, or got unlucky with a deflection off a bump in the fringe (which is quite beat up where my ball came to rest).
    • You're not supposed to change your vote. 😛 The problem with that is that the "shotgun pattern" doesn't account for the putts that go in. Yes, the distributions of both get larger. Bobby should have studied probability more. A putt going toward the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. Both result in a miss. A putt that is missing the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. One may result in a make, the other is still a miss. Bumps (if large enough to deflect the ball a little over an inch or so, and if close enough to the hole for a miss to become a make) have a negative outcome 100% of the time when the ball is going in, and a positive outcome 50% of the time when the ball is going to miss. Or to put it in absolute terms, every bump on a ball that would be going in the middle has a negative outcome - it steers the ball farther away from the center of the hole, and every bump that steers the ball on a putt that's missing has a 50% chance of "helping" by steering it in the right direction. Nope. You can join Bobby Jones in the statistics/probability class. 🙂 These bumps aren't knocking the ball feet farther away. They're not tees randomly stuck in the ground. They're just bumps on a putting green. That's the kind of road you can lead yourself down when you don't just look at it logically. 😄 To the majority of you getting this one wrong… Let's make an extreme example. You have one putter that makes 80% of his putts, and another that makes 50%. The gap is 30% or 0.3 strokes (1.2 versus 1.5). You introduce enough randomness that 25% of the putts that were going to go in miss and 5% of the putts that were going to miss go in. The gap is now: 0.8 * .75 + 0.2 * .05 = 61%. 0.5 * .75 + 0.5 * .05 = 40% What was a 30% gap is now a 19% gap. The gap narrows. The good putter is punished, even though he's punished at the same "rates" as the bad putter, at a higher "value" because he hits more putts that would have gone in, while the bad putter hits more putts that could potentially only be directed in. To put it another way, there's a larger possible "negative" adjustment or change for the good putter and a larger possible "positive" adjustment or change for the bad putter. This is true in pretty much* all cases: the more luck plays a role, the less skill plays a role. * I'm a "never say never or always" kinda guy. I can't think of a time when an increase in randomness or luck also increases or at least doesn't reduce skill, but again… see the first sentence here in this asterisk.
    • Why? On 40 foot putts, they both don’t have much of a chance.  It’s the putts inside 15 feet that have the highest Separation Value.  So if a great putter makes 5 of 10 putts at 8 feet (tour average) on tour greens and he missed 1 or 2 more on crappy greens, his percentage changes more. The bad putter is missing more of those anyway, even on good greens.
