I would call it crunchy vs crispy.

[–] Username@lemmy.nz 1 points 3 weeks ago

Yes this is one of the recipes I tried. Perhaps I need to make some adjustments and try again.

Interesting. Hadn’t thought of simple syrup. I love ordering crispy cauliflower bites when I am out and now that I’m thinking about it they do tend to often have a glaze.

Thanks, yeah I think maybe this is what I’m missing.

Do you have a good batter recipe for cauliflower? The one I tried didn’t work out too well.

I do not own an air fryer but I’m starting to think I may need to invest in one.

 

So far I tried making a flour based coating and frying it and I’ve tried frying it for 5 mins before putting it in the oven. Neither option was successful.

Survey on the boat is supposed to be this week but there is a weather system developing off the coast and it’s bringing high winds and rough seas. Not very conducive to a haul out and sea trial so we may have to delay it to the following week, which will push back everything else with the purchase and getting on board. Ah well, they say you shouldn’t sail to a schedule, I guess you shouldn’t try buying a sailboat to a schedule either!

Thanks! Depends significantly on the lake (size, surrounding terrain etc). Taupo can be pretty unpredictable. You’ll have no wind at all and then all of a sudden be on your side. Beautiful though and great swimming. Highly recommend!

P.S. I have also sailed very different boats in lakes vs. sea so that’s another factor to counter in.

Christmas 2023 on Lake Taupo

Oh yeah, sure!

We are buying the boat along the east coast of America so we are going to hopefully start by exploring the north of the east coast/Canada and then head down to the Caribbean for Christmas. After that, who knows. Fun fact: she was a marker boat for the Americas cup in NZ so she can certainly get us back home if we muster up the confidence!

Haha a bizarre dream for sure but they were very cute and may have had butterfly wings. I have no idea what was going on in my brain.

 

I was looking at my little speaker the other day and thinking to myself about how well it has done. My husband bought it for me about 10 years ago when we were just dating and had moved halfway across the world together with little money. It seemed like a big splurge at the time and we were using it to watch tv shows on our laptop without relying on the tinny laptop speakers (we didn’t have a tv). Fast forward to now and that speaker has traveled all over the place, been to the beach, been camping, been on sailing trips etc. and it still holds a charge really well and has pretty decent audio quality for its size. It even still looks good. I think ten years is pretty good for a little Bluetooth speaker, personally (maybe that's a normal amount of time?). Hopefully I can get many more years out of it. Anyway it feels strange to bring up older items and recommend them as BIFL because you never know if manufacturers have kept up their quality over the years. If these speakers are still being made with the same quality i definitely recommend them.
