I tried MAC and absolutely hated it.

 

I think I'm too right-brained or something. 

I just have had so many fewer problems using a mac and find them to be much more intuitive.  But we each have our own experiences and it boils down to what we're used to.

Could be... But they had an odd sing songy name.

 

Thought maybe it was Fava beans but you take the string off and open the pod on them like you do peas.

I'm trying to remember because I told my wife I had some veggies and she asked what kind and that's when I drew a blank.

Now she's thinking... My lack of veggies is a crisis because I can't name what I had.

It's the intuitive I don't like because my "intuitive" is totally different than theirs.

 

So it's probably that I am left-brain dominant (not right).  I can follow almost anything with logic but the intuitive part escapes me. :)

On Friday... A co-worker brought a bunch of vegetables. I barely know what vegetables are but I certainly didn't know what these were.

She said what they were but now I can't remember and it's bugging me.

They were like peas but you squeeze the pod to get them out.

She's gonna sarcastically say "Good for you Honey".

So Chief was really close with his "soybean" answer!

Bert talking about OF defense. Yesterday, LEN3 criticized all three OFs. I didn't think Schafer deserved any criticism. He chased Hammer's double and it lodged under the padding. Nothing he could do about that.

Because people will pay more for edamame.

There's a restaurant near me that serves this appetizer ... sort of an Asian equivalent to chips and guac ... is an edimame dip togarashi chips.  Is actually quite good.

Also, people tend to associate "soybeans" with animal food despite the popularity of "soy".

 

Lots of recipes with edamame floating around nowdays.

Because they are immature soy beans.  :)

 

Just boil 'em and salt 'em and done.

Bro is traveling and bought tickets to the Rockies game tonight, which is now in a water delay, due to a water main break.  Who knows when it'll get played.

Wife: You need to eat more vegetables

Me: I don't mind vegetables but if I'm looking at a steak and a bunch of veggies... I'm going for the steak. Ice Cream or Veggies... Again... I gotta go with the Ice Cream.

Wife: Whens the last time you had a Vegetable.

Me: Yesterday... Jen dropped some off in my office.

Wife: Something out of her garden?

Me: I don't know... They were... Ummm... She told me what they were and I don't remember.

Wife: Good God Brian... You can't even identify a Vegetable. How far removed are you from them?
