Z-hills needs to get a Target. We've got Kmart and Walmart but no Target :(
Though I think there is one in Wesley Chapel, which would be closer than the one in Tampa...

Will put the idea in the husband's head. There's other stuff we can do while we are out that way too.

you could order over the intarwebs?
a hunk of cast iron is about as foolproof a thing you could select to buy sight unseen, i would think?

Oh, I'm sure we'll do that if we have to. But my husband likes to get his hands on stuff before he buys it if possible.

Many hardware stores either have or can order cast iron cookware.

although i didn't do it on my cast iron pan, i have heard that you get a much better non stick surface (and more quickly seasoned) if you take an orbital sander to it to get it as smooth as possible before you start the process.
i can totally see that, since the pan i got, and all the others i've seen in the store since hearing that, have a fairly rough surface at purchase.

you know anything about that, Hustle?

Never tried it myself but it makes sense to me.

The OP was actually a nearly perfectly composed troll post. I appreciate the elegant simplicity.

1. A very simple task
2. A condescending presentation
3. Massive logistical failures that are obvious to people who possess specific knowledge, yet invisible to those who don't

Well done, really.

It would be an even bigger win if it got someone to actually try to rice a raw potato.

Sorry Nigel, but you are the failure. I gave very specific instructions that nobody in their right mind (save fuckyouoneeue) would refute and you guys are too thick and simple minded to take advantage of. Enjoy your failbrowns. In fact I would challenge you to ignore my advice and do the opposite of what i RECCOMEND IN MY Op, and tell me how your hash browns turn out.

Follow the leader sheeple.

And I'm known as such
And this is a beat uh u can't touch

I told you homeboy u can't touch this

Look in my eyes man u can't touch this
You know let me bust the funky lyrics u can't touch this Fresh new kicks and pants
You got it like that now you know you wanna dance
So move out of your seat
And get a fly girl and catch this beat
While it's rollin' hold on pump a little bit
And let me know it's going on like that like that
Cold on a mission so pull on back
Let 'em know that you're too much
And this is a beat uh u can't touch

Yo I told you u can't touch this
Why you standing there man u can't touch this

Yeah, pretty much. Seems cool and pretty smart, would probably be fun to troll with.

Dude, there's already someone here who does the recipe-fail troll, and does it way funnier than you do. I do like your style though, and it certainly has been effective at getting members here actually arguing with you about shit like ricing raw potatoes, which is pretty fucking funny. Or using riced potatoes for hash browns. Good one. A ricer is useful for squeezing out the moisture if you use raw potatoes, though.

Also, lard or GTFO. Seriously, there is never an excuse for using "cooking oil" for panfrying. But you know that.

The Dark Empress Nigel left lard at The Wall.


Tucson hasn't been the same since.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.
