    The Baking Thread

    Are there any other bakers out there? I love to bake, but typically stick to muffins, the occasional donut, and easy loaves I can make in a pan without yeast, starters, what have you. I've been wanting to start to bake my own bread for a few years now, and I think I'm finally going to bite the bullet and attempt to get my own starter going. Has anyone here ever made their own bread? I'm also very interested in baking in my cast iron pan, since I did a few very simple cheddar biscuits as part of a Blue Apron meal a few weeks ago. Anyway, let this be a place where we can all talk about baking processes, baking results, baked goods tried... Cakes, muffins, breads, oh my! And biscuits, cupcakes, tarts, pies, whatever!

    Whomever it was must have been severely dehydrated and also have ingested some artificial food coloring, because this yellow was no pee yellow!

    The Automotive Thread

    I got some more info from my fiance. Apparently he and our friend identified and confirmed that the leak was coming from the exhaust pipe, and even saw a yellow crystal attached to the exhaust pipe itself. And I haven't seen any leakage like this under the car where it is parked in the garage at home. Granted, it probably wouldn't be as easy to see on dirty concrete than it is on white snow. No picture... Would it be possible for coolant to leak through the exhaust?

    Ski Season is Around the Corner!

    The amount of snow that was seen between Friday night and Sunday morning where I was this past weekend! Soooo much powder! It was fun, and it also sure was a workout to get through. Overall, it was a grand time! Only minor fault was me tweaking my knee while attempting to tackle my fiance into some snow. Luckily that was after all of the skiing was done for the trip!

    The Automotive Thread

    While up in Tahoe this weekend, I noticed something that was neon yellow in color was leaking out of the bottom of my car. In a cursory Google search, I found that this could be because the exhaust pipe was in contact with snow (yes, it definitely was). The blog I saw explained that it is common for exhaust pipes to be made of galvanized steel using zinc to inhibit rust, but when the zinc comes into contact with salt and water (i.e. compacted snow with road salt mixed in), a chemical reaction happens that creates neon yellow crystals. Has anyone experienced this before? Is it anything I should get checked out at the shop?

    The Running Thread

    I did my first track workout in forever (I've never been one to run on a track) yesterday! The workout went something like this: 1 mile warmup, 6x400's (7-10 max effort) with alternating recovery 400's, and 1 mile cooldown. It was interesting to do a true speed workout! I definitely am not that familiar with running on a track, and definitely also got out of my running comfort zone. I was gassed by the end, and didn't pace myself super well throughout my effort laps (essentially started out too fast, and paid for it by the end), but I felt very accomplished at the end. I did it with a run club that meets there every Wednesday, so I think I'm going to try to incorporate it into my weekly workout schedule.

    The Running Thread

    Hello all! Are there any other runners around these parts? I didn't see an official running thread, so I figured I might start one. Of any potential runners out there, do you run for fun, do any races, run outside/inside, etc.? Personally, I like to run outdoors (thankfully, I live somewhere where I can run year-round, typically). I enjoy doing a few runs a week, and am trying to do one race every month this year. My first is this weekend, a 15k, though my favorite distance to run in races (not just on my own) is a half marathon. I also love Ragnar Races, both road and trail. I have absolutely no desire to ever run a full marathon. We can also discuss running shoes and different gear, too. Right now, I'm running in (and loving) my Brooks PureCadence shoes. I also have the PureGrit for trails. So feel free to join in! Whether you used to run, are a current runner, or are interested in getting started with running. Feel free to ask any questions, too.

    NFL 2018

    No favorites, but the crowd I was with thought it was a little unsettling that there were so many commercials involving humanoid robots. Not because they exist out there (well, actually partly), but because by the time they're trying to get you to empathize with a robot because it can't drink beer with it's friends, it's a step too far.

    2018 NFL - EB Pick EM

    If only there had been money involved... Start saving for next time, kids! Kidding. But if I'm running this thing, it's gonna be at least a $30 buy-in (I think I might have even said $40 in the past...) and one must pay before getting access to the league.

    Whatever that was yesterday, it was not worth watching. I should've known when the halftime score was 3-0!
