How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Lesson for the Day

I made that Yankee Stew I mentioned- apple cider, venison stew with cranberries. I learned a few things:
  • Dried cranberries dissolve when cooked in a stew. Add them last.
  • I need to stage the ingredients more to keep things more differentiated.
  • Rice doesn't absorb as much liquid as you think it should.
  • I don't like stew.

The last one there was kinda a deal breaker. I know I don't like stew, but I thought, for some reason, that "this time, it'll be different". Why? No idea.

Next "big" meal? Cajun catfish in red beans and rice. That, I know I like.
