    I bought a hobo pie maker for a camping trip. Unfortunately it's a bit of work to prep it. It has a plastic or wax coating to protect during shipping which I have to burn off, then wash the thing, then I have to season it. Will probably take an hour in total though a lot of that is hands off time. If you have any good recipes for these let me know! We've only tried grilled cheese and pizza sandwiches. I was thinking some kind of cheese steak would be good like with chipped beef and provolone.

    Would it make waffles? Waffles are the item that I bought most recently, from a Belgian waffle shop in town, and you can never go wrong with waffles.

    Waffles are an essential food group.

    chicken and waffles are the most harmonious combination you'd never suspect. I HIGHLY recommend.

    It doesn't have the indents for waffles so not fresh waffles. You could use waffle batter but it'd be more like a pancake sandwich or french toast. But you could bring premade waffles and just toast them with something in between. This place by my house has a chicken and waffle sandwich, fried boneless chicken between two waffles with a honey mustard and syrup for dipping on the side. Simply amazing.

    a person of culture I see.

    you might like my personal breakfast of kings: waffles with thick bacon and quince or apricot jam.

    you'll love it. once you go mecha, you never go backa.

    chocolate and chili is a surprisingly harmonious and common combination, at least nowadays it is common. almost overdone I'd say. it's one of those totally weird things like melon and ham, but then again the Mayas did it and they knew their stuff.

    is it a sharpening or a honing tool? most ppl don't know the difference, but it's actually cats and dogs. sharpening makes the blades sharp and repairs them, it's the bread and butter. honing is exclusively for aligning the edge, which is not very useful if your knife is dull. if you want your knife to slice beautifully you have to sharpen it like 2 times a year or more, depending on how much you cut with it.

    often times people buy knives when the others are dull, which is kinda unecessary. even the worst knife in the world will cut through everything like butter once you've sharpened it. the quality difference is really not the sharpness of the knife, but the steel, handle, etc. a new knife can cost you between 2 and 200 dollar depending on how much you're willing to invest, but sharpening 3 or 4 of your old knives at a professional will likely only cost ten or twenty bucks, and they'll be perfect for half a year and last a good 'nother year.

    of course the best way is to learn to sharpen yourself, so if you've got yourself a sharpener you will never have to pay for knives again! yay for hobbs!

    ps: serrated knives cannot really be sharpened in any ordinary way and you're probably killing them by doing that :lol:

    not when you have a sharp knife :lol: slicing an old mushy tomato is actually the number one test whether or not your knife needs maintenance, what also works is slicing a wet sponge or a piece of newspaper you're holding in the air.

    heated seats and remote start are my only dream features in a car. I don't care what it looks like or how many cylinders if it's got those.

    How far north are you? I considered remote start, but for roughly $500, I'm too cheep for that. I just wouldn't use it that much.

    I doubt I'd put that much into an existing (used) car, which I am much more likely to be able to afford, but if it was an option for only 500 more from the beginning, I think I'd do it.

    I'm not very far north at all, I just really hate the cold :lol:
