I would break the built in flash off the camera if it wasn't useful as a trigger. Off camera lighting = ceiling lighting and TV. Barely enough. I live like a vampire in mostly darkness.

I do, when I'm wearing my cape and sucking virgin blood.

Currently the only lights on in the upper half of the house are the light above my shower in the bathroom, and my TV, and the computer monitor. I rarely turn on more than that.

Food related note of the day. I went to a local hole in the wall bbq joint called Saw's. Oh my god, I feel like I have filled a major missing piece of my life with their ribs. I thought I had eaten good ribs in my life, but these were on a level I had no idea was possible. Literally one of the best foods I have ever eaten. And their sauce is equally amazing. I had never heard of the place, despite living only 15 miles away my entire life. And my friend told me afterwards that apparently Andrew Zimmern ate there on one of his shows or something and loved it. Zimmern also ate at another of my local favorites, "The Red Pearl Restaurant", which is a small 10 table place in the back corner of an Asian grocery store in an unassuming building in a bad part of town. Authentic Chinese dishes made to perfection. Mind blowingly good food there, for stupid cheap prices. Last time I was there I got a fish bowl size bowl of hot fish soup. Dear god, the portion size was insane, and it was only $6. Barely known place though, almost no one I preach to about the place has heard of it.

Sweet and sour broccoli and tofu stir fry. At least that's what I'm calling it. So good.

Are the cubes the tofu stir fry thing? Never tasted tofu but i'd love that with chicken cubes instead.

Yeah, that's the tofu. If you've never tried it, try it before you knock it. It's actually pretty tasty. Though really the tofu itself has little flavor. It takes on seasoning and flavor really well though. You can marinade it and then it really soaks up a ton of flavor. It's a very versatile ingredient with decent protein. I like extra firm the best, since when fried like above, it takes on a texture pretty similar to chicken. Crispy and firm outside, with a slightly softer inside. Tofu also has a long shelf life, unlike most meats. So I never feel hurried to make a dish. I get to it when I feel like it.

Well call me Olga the Veg.

All I did was dry it well (put the block between two stacks of paper towels, and put a weight on top and let sit for 10 minutes.) and dice it into cubes. Then lightly bread each cube in corn starch, then fry in an iron skillet with a little veg oil. Would have used the wok, but didn't feel like messing with it. Don't flip the pieces until they have gotten nice and brown, as flipping them too soon or too often will make them sort of fall apart.

Don't knock it till you've tried it. Some of them actually have a personality, which is more than can usually be said for the pretty girls.

I've known a few pretty cool and attractive vegetarian or vegan girls in my time. They do exist.

Sonic's lemon cream slush is one of the best things ever. It's like drinking a lemon meringue pie, just without the crust. Which I guess could be taken care of with crumbled up pie crust or graham cracker pieces.

Made a little dinner for the wife last night since she had been in KC for work last week.

Grass fed, dry aged rib eye. Pan-seared in a bit of olive oil, then added shallots and red wine to make a quick pan sauce. For the baked potato I always rub the skin in olive oil, sea salt, fresh cracked pepper.

It was delicious.
