Beef Bulgogi

Beef Bulgogi

For dinner this evening, Babylon family foodies, Marnie and Louis Paumier, made Beef Bulgogi, a Korean meal that literally means 'fire meat' in Korean. Thursday, June 7, 2018

For 10 person (ish) do 200ml soy sauce, 200 ml water, 50ml mirin, 100g sugar, 1 table spoon of minced garlic, 1 tea spoon of pepper. The key is how the sauce tastes before you mix it with meat. I would taste it and control the sweetness by sugar or honey. And sesame oil and sesame seeds. Probably 2.5 lb thin shaved beef.

Living and loving in the age of asparagus

Living and loving in the age of asparagus
Or - Mary Katherine Ham to Alicia Silverstone: Go Hunting
October 3rd, 2007 by Kevin E. Dayhoff

Although I have spent a large portion of my life as a vegetarian; as I grew older and life got particularly hectic, I gave it up – for now anyway. Who knows, tomorrow, I may go back. Whatever.

A number of years ago, as I was attempting to reason with an unreasonable person and losing miserably, a colleague said to me:

“You know what your problem is?”

“Ugh.” I really did not need advice at that particular moment; however, I prized his friendship and sheepishly asked: “What?”

“It's a dog eat dog world out there, and you're a vegetarian!"

We solved that by going out to a sub shop where I gave up the anorexic bliss of salads and voraciously scarfed down a cheese-steak sandwich.

It was a road to Damascus experience

I still lose miserably with folks who accept narcissistic fiction as fact, however, I am bigger now, and I figure that if I am to eaten alive, I might as well give folks a flavorful super-sized meal.

Then again, to be candid, I was never good at being a vegetarian. I never stopped eating animal crackers and every once and awhile at Moms, I’d dive into a steak – and I can rarely remember missing turkey at Thanksgiving.

I have a number of colleagues and some family members who are, at the moment, practicing vegetarians - and I respect that choice. Besides, I really like vegetables. Then there are folks who don’t like vegetables or are otherwise broccoli intolerant. To them I say, ya really ought to “give peas a chance.”

A member of my family, who is an avid vegetarian, recently gave some seafood a try. Bold.

Then again, writing for the Washington Post, Joel Achenbach says that:

“Certain kinds of seafood, such as lobster, clams, and crabs, are honorary forms of meat, but a small filet of a low-fat white fish should be viewed as essentially a vegetable. Raw oysters are manfood, as is any fish served with the head on and the mouth gaping in horror.

Me, I could live off of Dr. Pepper, coffee and grits. Hey, don’t knock the cooking with Dr. Pepper book. There are some great recipes in there.

I never tried the “vegan” approach. I often wondered how the term came about. When I was quite young I had a great deal of confusion over the term “vegetarian.” If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?

Mr. Achenbach calls to our attention a savior for vegans, who every once in awhile, go Jonesing for a milkshake – “soy cows.”

In the column he was initially singing the praises of his new “Fabulator 5000.”

What is a “Fabulator 5000?” I am so glad you asked. I was fascinated about this development since I am still using the Fabulator model No. 1953.

I’ll let Mr. Achenbach ‘splain:

“I love my new food printer, the Fabulator 5000, which makes the previous food printers look not just clunky but positively medieval. There's no more click-and-point nonsense on the screen, no more waiting five or six interminable minutes for the food to print. You just tell the Fab 5 what you want. The food comes out in about three or four seconds, complete with garnish and a complementary wine.”

Oh, the “soy cows?” Apparently Mr. Achenbach recently “took the kids … to Homewood Farm to see a good old-fashioned agricultural enterprise…”

“I got a look at the new soy cows, grazing in the large field just north of the orchard. The USDA apparently felt that soy milk could be produced much more efficiently if it came from cows made of soy. These cows are so green they nearly blend into the landscape. They say the soy milk is a lot better tasting (not as beany, somehow) than the stuff derived from plants, and the soy burgers are more tender. But you've probably read about how the soy cows dry up badly in drought conditions -- they literally wilt -- and even catch fire. Bored teenagers have been blamed for setting some of the cow fires.”

There is much to be appreciated by the vegetarian lifestyle; nevertheless my goal was to not be evangelical about it all.

But – and ya know there was going to be a “but” in here soon – I’ve never been fond of PETA’s Strindbergian gloom and bleakness approach to advocacy. 

When I was a practicing vegetarian, invariably, some folks would suggest some linkage to me, a vegetarian, with PETA’s in-your-face humorless lactose intolerant militancy which often seems more oriented to being obnoxious and annoying than being compelling a persuasive to what is otherwise, a perfectly fine lifestyle.

At a local government - social event, a local elected official’s wife was horrified that I was a vegetarian. “How can a big strapping former Marine be a vegetarian,” she gasped.

I solved that in quick order. She was a dog lover and the owner of a huge St. Bernard. I mean huge – about the size of a water buffalo.

I asked her if she had ever eaten dog. When I was in the Marines, a South Vietnamese ranger once cooked-up a mess of dog.

It tasted like chicken.

I suggested to my scowling friend that her St. Bernard could feed an entire village… And one wonders why I lost my last election?

Recently Alicia Silverstone did an ad for PETA that has garnered a garnered a great deal of attention. I can’t believe that it is winning over any converts to vegetarianism, but it has attracted attention to PETA.

Whether it is really the sort of attention that an advocacy organization wants is a bigger issue for which there is not right or wrong, it just isn’t my cup of tea.

Nevertheless, in age of so much strife and discord, I yearn for a time when peas will rule the planets, and love won’t be such a fuss. I long for the dawn of the age of asparagus.

Enter stage right, Mary Katherine Ham. Ms. Ham has done a spoof on the Ms. Silverstone ad that is a real crack-up.

"Take a break" May 9, 2018 by Kevin Dayhoff

“Take a break” May 9, 2018 by Kevin Dayhoff

Just read: “Take a break!” by Caitlin Kelly – “I know, for some of you — parents, caregivers, those on super-tight budgets, in school — that’s not easy to do…” Find it here: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/33359/posts/1847859389

I just wrote a parallel piece on the same topic, the need to take a break. I do not do it well. When I farmed, I must have gone as long as 10-years at a time without a vacation. I have been retired since 1999 and I have never learned to take time off. I travel more – but often look upon the travel as opportunities to write and will return home pretty tired from trying to fit in time at the keyboard and keep-up with the travel schedule.

I have never had a paid vacation in my life.

The challenges of being a free-lancer, even though I have a contract with a major publication, are at times overwhelming. Long hours with little pay, increased bureaucracy and time spent on administrative matters; and that nagging thought in the back of my head, that maybe, just maybe, I ought to just give it up and go to work for a fast food restaurant. At least I could get paid, I would take the opportunity to write about my experiences, especially the interactions with the public.

However, I grabbed a paragraph from my piece, it might even be the takeaway: “‘there are incredible health and wellness benefits associated with time off from work.’ And ‘Several studies have demonstrated that taking regular vacation time can be preventative medicine.’” Just saying.

BT featuring Kirsty Hawkshaw - A Million Stars (Official Music Video)


A Million Stars – BT feat. Kirsty Hawkshaw

Kevin Earl Dayhoff May 1, 2018 YouTube
#amwriting Play this at eleven. Tilly Masterson

And it only takes a moment
To step outside and let the rain
Kiss your pain away

And surrender it to the sun
Cause the world is still spinning around
So seize the day

‘Cause you have come so far
Watched a million frowns turn into smiles
Lost all track of time
Felt the energy of a million stars

You will feel love again
You will feel love again
After the rain

As the coronas start to reverse
We take what’s left when it subsides
Information and perception
Get swept away into past times

And you have come so far
But they refer to us only as past
As words and thoughts combined
The will of love came winning in your heart

You will feel love again
You will feel love again
You will feel love again after the rain

And you have come so far
But they refer to us only as past
As words and thoughts combined
The will of love came winning in your heart

You will feel love again
You will feel love again
You will feel love again

You will feel love again after the rain
*****

Lonely is the runner that runs two miles staring at a red ball on the floor

Lonely is the runner that runs two miles staring at a red ball on the floor. So what happened to spring? I actually like walking and running on treadmill at the fire station, but I guess I miss the Wakefield Valley Trail. I like listening to the music at 11, but prefer the outdoor scenery.

At Birdie’s in Westminster


At Birdie's in Westminster, enjoying a great cup of coffee, some me-time, and the current art exhibition, "Three Words," by Gerard Lonesome and Eleanor Tatreaux.
It is really a fun show. Do not miss it.

"THREE WORDS:" Works by Gerard Lonesome and Eleanor Tatreaux

"Gerard and Eleanore are twins from the planet Zebulon. Their art was delivered to us by courier pigeon several months ago. In their letter to us they stated that they telephonically thought of three words to create each one of their works, thus the show name, 'Three Words.'"

"They will travel to earth in light years to collect the money made from sales of this show in order to fund the takeover of planet Earth. Until such time, however, they will allow the Earthlings to use the profits from this show to fund the first ever Pride Festival in Westminster, Maryland.

"Gerard was educated at the finest art institute on Zebulon and Eleanore is a self-taught savant.

"Enjoy the show, it maybe your last, Earthling."

From the album "Post". Lyrics: We live on a mountain Right at the top There's a beautiful view From the top of the mountain Every morning I walk towards the edge And throw little things off Like: Car parts, bottles and cutlery Or whatever I find lying around It's become a habit A way To start the day I go through all this Before you wake up So I can feel happier To be safe up here with you It's early morning No one is awake I'm back at my cliff Still throwing things off I listen to the sounds they make On their way down I follow with my eyes 'til they crash Imagine what my body would sound like Slamming against those rocks When it lands Will my eyes Be closed or open? I go through all this Before you wake up So I can feel happier To be safe up here with you
