Thanks! A paper on altruism doesn't sound that bad. The poli-sci aspect sounds like a nightmare (but then politics isn't my thing). (assuming google gave me the right answer to what a principal-agent model is)

I'm supposed to go to a neighborhood meeting tonight. I think I might bail on it and just hear about it from someone else.

I'd like people to share what kind of olive oil they use and why. I've been using ordinary olive oil for grilling and sauteeing, and extra virgin for marinades. But do I want all Italian olives, Greek olives, first press and a bunch of other things on labels that I don't know if it's good or they just want me to pay more.

Any comments, suggestions would be appreciated.

Edit: Also, why do so many recipes call for butter to be added to olive oil for sauteeing?



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

The olive oil, heated properly, cooks the food; the butter adds an enriching flavor.

I only use virgin olive oil . . . Greek or Italian is a matter of taste . . . extra virgin olive oil (I think) can tolerate higher cooking temps without scorching, while not over-saturating the foods . . . (speaking from experience, not culinary fact.)

Grumpy 'til the day I die.

butter alone has too high of a smoke point for cooking most foods, but it has extra flavor. So you add the olive oil to increase the smoke point. With a mixture you get optimum cooking and flavor.

If you're allergic to dairy, a dairy-free (tasty) margarine works great in place of the butter. You can also only use olive oil.

Lady Poof,

I'm guessing he means "careful not to burn the oil." I think extra-virgin olive oil has a lower smoke point than the more slutty olive oils.

Either that, or he means "it's hard to cook with cold oil."

At least Smackie killed the thread this time.

I left work about 20 minutes early and went home to nap. Good long nap. Skipped the meeting. Feeling a bit better.

Anyone around? I'm watching Hell's Kitchen.

Ms. Daj,

How should I have referred to the olive oils which were not as virtuous as "extra virgin?"

Ordered a bunch of stuff from Petco...online sale, and I special code for Mothers Day that gave another 10% and free shipping and a free tote bag (one of those grocry store like bags).
Then went to costco, which had none of the things I went for.
Oh well.
One good shopping experience and one waste of time.
How was your day?

Oh, and I did some chores in the rain, because the weather report said it would rain all day....but it stopped after I got home!

I went shopping Saturday looking for clothes and shoes and found nothing. I went to the mall and to Target. I didn't even see anything to tempt me into trying it on.

Hi, Zea and D'name. I went to Sam's today and got very little. How come Wal-Mart carries Sam's Club brand but Sam's doesn't?

Hi Poof! That is an interesting question. Hmmm...

EDIT: I think the Sam's club house brand is "Maker's Mark".

Back from walkies. Hi Zea, Dname.

We've spoiled Chester[ina], the large white duck in the park. We take him [now we think a her] bread on many walks. S/he sees us coming and starts waddling to us and quacking. S/he was upset tonight because didn't bring any.

I don't see anything different than the usual scrolls on long sigs. Not yours, mine, zeas, or poofs.

Check. It comes and goes with each post. Even small ones like Poof.
Right before I posted this, they were fine.
This might be the strangest woot quirk yet.

Nope, not seeing it. I wonder if it's a mod thing since you have more "features."

Hi Daj! For me the bottom 2 or 3 sigs were cut in half but no scroll bar. Then it all went back to normal.

You can't try on at costco. Then there is this one person who works trying to keep the clothes neat, which is a useless job if there ever was one. She yells if you try on anything at all, which just leads to taking clothes and trying them on in other parts of the store.

Only yours stays the same. I even moved the print onto the same line as the mice, but it still splits.
