I haven't blogged in awhile, been too busy gardening and other stuff. But I thought I would share this recipe.
This weekend, I will be making ingredients for ramen from scratch - namely, a good ramen stock, and cha siu. This is all part of my Tampopo-like search for the perfect bowl of ramen. Perhaps I will photoblog!
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
The BIAW are so screwed now!
Elected judges must disqualify themselves from cases involving people who spent exceptionally large sums to put them on the bench, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday in a 5-to-4 decision.
A report on studies linking the "ick factor" to conservatism:
People who squirm at the sight of bugs or are grossed out by blood and guts are more likely to be politically conservative, new studies find.
In particular, the squeamish are more apt to have conservative attitudes about gays and lesbians.
Lots of other research has tied politics to biology and behavior. Some quick background:
* A study last year found that when people feel physically clean, they are less judgmental.
* Another study found that political conservatives tend to be tidy, with organized offices, but liberals favor colorful, more stylish but cluttered spaces.
* Political views are driven by religion, culture and even biology, other research has shown.
* A large, global study in 2007 concluded that political preference is 50 percent genetic.
I got a soup recipe off the internet, but it wasn't quite right. I made a couple of changes, and am reposting the altered recipe here. It's very tasty.
