See, it is mostly that second entry in the list [yeast] which keeps giving me trouble given that it isn't part of my shopping routine for the rare times I'm the one picking up main groceries in the household, and no one else really has interest in baking breads and such. Also there is usually only all purpose flour in the house, which I've never been overly happy with for most styles of breads. 


If you get one of those big jars of yeast it will stay good in the refrigerator for at least a year, provided you only put clean spoons into the jar to get the yeast out.  I use the foil packets myself because I don't make bread often enough to use a whole jar.  I know what you mean about the flour - I switched to keeping gold medal bread flour as the standard flour of the house, since it works fine for cookies and other things I would use flower for.  It's still not a high gluten flour though, so it's not suitable for some breads (e.g. pizza crust, bagels) unless you want to also keep a thing of vital wheat gluten in the cupboard to supplement it.  I've also had trouble finding non-wheat flour - I love Swedish rye bread, the sweet kind made with molasses, but darned if I can find any rye flour.


As far as the ham, mustard, and cheese, I love that served hot on a pretzel roll. smile.png

Why would meatballs involve any kind of milk??  Meatballs are so simple, they're basically the same as meatloaf, salmon cakes, and crab cakes



The recipe I was using called for milk sad.png So i decided to use the Soy Milk instead which I use for my protein shakes.


Oh perhaps it was Swedish meatballs, or something like that?  I think those take either milk or sour cream, but it's in the sauce, not in the meatballs.  Theoretically soy milk would be fine as a substitute, but I haven't tried it myself.

I wish someone would make an alphadoku game so I could play it.  Either on android or as a website like: http://www.dailykillersudoku.com/


I'd also be really happy if someone would make a new game like Plant Tycoon http://store.steampowered.com/app/16120/ since the company that made it and Fish Tycoon decided not to make any more in the series.


Another good goal is to create minigames (representing resource gathering, crafting, etc.) that can late be plugged into a larger game such as a virtual pet site or MMO.

I tend to keep things fairly basic most of the time, but exploring new styles of cooking is always fun. Really need to get back into baking more often, home made bread is awesome, but I never seem to remember to pick up stuff to make any. Don't think I even have any bread pans at this point.

Depending on what kind of bread you want to make, you don't necessarily need much.  The one I usually make is:

- flour

- yeast

- sugar (this is optional but I don't like the flavor without it)

- salt

- water


5 or 6 cups of flour makes 3 small loves or 2 medium loaves, and I cook them on a regular baking sheet.  Serve hot with margarine or jam.

I've burned spaghetti.

Then you should probably stay out of the kitchen. Just saying...


Eh, I've managed to burn spaghetti in the past.  Using too little water and ignoring it instead of stirring will do it.
