  1. Oven tidak dikontrol dengan tepat seperti mandi air sous vide, tapi kupikir dengan suhu yang cukup rendah, aku harus bisa memberi kentang itu waktu yang lama untuk menikmati sweet spot 135 sampai 170 itu. https://goo.gl/gpXomC resep salad buah Memanggang kentang pada suhu 300 ° F (150 ° C) selama beberapa jam tentu merupakan perbaikan selama jam standar di oven 375 ° F (190 ° C), namun tetap tidak ideal - eksterior kentang Terlalu panas terlalu cepat

    Jauh lebih baik adalah membungkus kentang dalam kantong foil rapat. Perangkap ini dalam kelembaban yang keluar, yang mencegah lapisan luar kentang dari kepanasan saat mereka dipanggang. Anda berakhir dengan lebih merata dimasak dan, yang lebih penting, manis manis kentang yang sangat mudah untuk mengupas. Dengan menempatkan kentang secara langsung ke dalam oven dingin dan membiarkannya panas saat oven memanaskannya, Anda juga bisa meningkatkan pemanis enzimatiknya.

    Metode foil-pouch juga memungkinkan Anda menambahkan aromatik saat Anda memanggang. Beberapa tangkai thyme membuat pasangan klasik. Jika Anda benar-benar membungkuk pada kentang manis https://goo.gl/cI8bvx resep sayur lodeh terbaik dan tidak memiliki sirkit void sous, Anda dapat dengan mudah menggunakan metode bir cooler. Isi saja pendingin dengan air sekitar 170 ° F, tambahkan seluruh kentang manis Anda, masukkan tutupnya, dan biarkan mereka duduk beberapa jam sebelum mengemasnya ke dalam kantong kertas foil dan memanggang resepnya.

    Dengan kentang manis yang manis, empuk, dan mudah dikupas, yang tersisa hanyalah sedikit penyetelan. Thanksgiving bukanlah saat untuk malu dengan mentega, dan tidak diragukan lagi bahwa kentang ini akan mendapatkan beberapa. Saya telah membawa sebuah batch tes awal ke tempat teman untuk makan Thanksgiving awal (kami melakukan banyak sesi Thanksgivings awal di sini), dan dia mengomentari ubi jalar, menanyakan apakah mereka mengandung mentega coklat.

    Tidak, tapi dengan permen karet, itu ide bagus! Kentang itu sendiri https://goo.gl/GcY1ry resep sayur asem mendapatkan kompleksitas yang kaya, hampir mirip permen karena pelepasannya yang lambat. Menambahkan mentega yang telah dimasak turun sampai padatan susunya mulai menjadi cokelat dan nutrisinya menonjolkan rasa itu lebih banyak lagi.

    Beberapa orang suka menambahkan kayu manis, pala, atau rempah-rempah lainnya ke kentang manis mereka. Teori saya adalah bahwa mereka hanya overcompensating untuk ubi jalar dimasak dengan https://www.givology.org/~galauera/blog/422427/ cara yang tidak menghasilkan rasa terbaik mereka. Kami tidak memiliki masalah di sini. Satu-satunya tambahan lain yang saya buat sebelum mencambuknya adalah garam, sedikit thyme segar untuk melengkapi tangkai yang saya masukkan ke dalam kantong foil mereka, dan sedikit sirop maple untuk menonjolkan rasa karamel itu lebih banyak lagi.

  2. In dissapointing news, Asm. Torlakson's bill did not advance out of the legislature this year. I'm hoping it can still be a vehicle for advancing this issue next year...

  3. Just a quick note -- the Torlakson bill will be up in Senate Appropriations Committee some point soon, so any letters or calls to committee members will help a lot! you can find the members here: http://www.senate.ca.gov/ftp/sen/committee/STANDING/APPROP/_home1/PROFILE.HTM

  4. Yes! Great news... the bill made it out of Senate Education Committee last Wednesday, but now the real battle will be to get it out of Senate Appropriations in light of the horrible budget situation. Get letters of support in on the bill as soon as you can by going to http://www.cpehn.org/issues.php

    Jean Shin creates sculptures from cast away objects. She currently has a show at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She said recently,"I'm attracted to objects that have the potential to be re-imagined differently from their current use or value in our society".

    For me this is the essence of joint use.

    Can we re-imagine a space or a place and see it being used additionally or differently?
    The vacant acres belonging to the school as a park? The empty lot as a garden? The vacated portables as a community meeting place?

    Some times it is as simple as it was for me. A community member said, "What about that fenced off lot at the elementary school? It has sat their unused for 25 years. That would make us a good park".

    Indeed! Creativity is about seeing the potential for what could be in what is....

  7. Great comments, Manal! I completely agree with everything. Just one thing I want to point out or clarify (since we're talking in part about the Torlakson bill)-- I don't know that the issue with communities not taking advantage of existing state joint-use funds is the complexity of the application process (though it could be simplified). I think it's more the fact that you can use the funds for only limited purposes.

    For example, under the current rules you can only use the money to build an indoor joint-use space, so no playgrounds. AB 346 would give communities more flexibility in using the funds, for example to allow for outdoor recreation facilities.

    I agree on General Plans. Keeping track of them and influencing them might be the long-term solution.

  8. Particularly in this economic climate, I completely agree that allowing for community use of school facilities is a cost-effective way to bring physical activity opportunities within easier reach of more people. The question about what we should be asking for at a local, state and national levels is a great one and I would love to see everyone who subscribes contribute some ideas so that we brainstorm this together. Here are my ideas. At the local / regional level (in addition to the local organizing gislas suggested), I think we should be asking school district, city and regional government to do joint planning on a regular basis, so as new school facilities are being developed or existing ones are being renovated there is a place at the table for community residents and city planners to discuss how the facility can be developed and programmed with maximum use in mind from the beginning. Similarly, as general plans and regional blueprints are being developed, shared use of parks, playgrounds and school yards should be embedded in city and regional plans as a way to maximize the use of these assets. In other words, no local entities should be allowed to plan and develop in isolation; joint planning needs to happen up front and consistently. I also think that we need locals to exert political will to make sure that low-income communities and people of color get the very best in terms of community use of schools, parks and pools since they are most often living with least access to parks and open space. At the state level, my ideas are to work with the school facilities division to identify opportunities to facilitate and incentivize joint use, especially by severe need schools. Under the current formula, when joint use dollars are available, they are used to fund the schools that have applied for joint use dollars on a first come first serve basis, but if there was some way to prioritize or give an extra boost to schools in low income communities, we might be able to create greater equity in access. Some have suggested that the application process for joint use projects is complex, but I do not know this for a fact. Also, we may want to ask folks at the state school facilities to come out to our communities to do trainings on how to apply for these resources. I also think there might be a few things that the legislative analysts office or the office of planning and research (OPR) might be able to do to help us asses the economic value of joint use and encourage joint planning. For example OPR is responsible for providing guidelines to locales for developing general plans so they create complete streets (for bicyclists and pedestrians) and they could do this around joint use of public facilities. At the national level, especially absent funding for urban parks, we need to work with the folks at 21st century school fund and see what they are pushing for with the current administration. Thanks to their efforts, the stimulus package had some resources, including low interest loans for things like joint use projects, but since our state budget is in such a shambles it seems unlikely that there will be many or perhaps any like this. Let's keep this brainstorm going.

  9. Some other things I'd like to see at the state-level: 1. legislation clarifying that individuals (not just organized groups) can get schools to open their doors under the Civic Center Act and other statutes; 2. a statement from the Attorney General and/or California State Superintendent of Public Instruction clarifying their intent that schools should open their grounds for community recreation and that liability issues should not be a concern/hindrance.

  10. I'm convinced that giving community access to school space for play and recreation is an immediate simple solution to overcoming challenges in finding safe places to play. I believe that in order to affect change on a larger scale we need to organize community members to advocate locally for access to their school space as well as educate decision makers and help transform them to be champions for this effort. So on the last point and beyond asking for support on the Torlakson bill what else should we be asking for from our local, state and national elected officials?

    I am aware of the Civic Center Act but wonder how many Superintendents and School Boards are familiar with the act's provisions.

    Some education at the local level would be so helpful on the major aspects of joint use. From my perspective there is a need for the State to inform and normalize this approach to community assets. Schools are critical partners but need support and help. Obviously the proposed assistance with accessing funds, in the Torlakson bill, is a great idea when communities reach the point of seriously considering joint use. At this stage, people in smaller communities are clearly put off because the concept seems foreign, complicated and beyond their capacity.

  12. There are very few issues in which the state doesn't have a strong role, either as a creator of barriers or a supporter of local change. At the state level, there are tools that can be used to support local efforts. State statutes, such as the Civic Center Act, may be invoked to open schools up if the school is resistant. Also, a state program exists to help communities fund the creation of new joint use sites around the state. But the complex requirements for accessing the funding may pose a barrier to low-income communities successfully accessing those dollars. Torlakson’s bill — AB 346 — would ease these barriers. That's why it's important we get this bill through!

    I thought joint use was a local issue. How does it look at the state level?

  14. In so many parts of California, we see nothing but rows of stores, chain malls, and freeways galore. When our communities are laid out in ways that make pavement more accessible than park space, it’s not surprising that so many of us are having a tough time getting the exercise we need to be healthy. The problem is even worse in communities of color, where there is much less open space, so it’s even harder to be active. We know we need more sidewalks, more parks, more places to walk and play. The thing is, there's an immediate answer right under our nose: joint use, the idea that we can share spaces that are already there. If your community is lucky enough to have school grounds with green grass, jungle bars, a slide -- isn’t it silly to let those facilities go unused most hours of the week when they could be used by families and children? The smart thing to do is open school grounds after hours so communities can be more physically active. We can do this now by creating joint use agreements. At CPEHN, we feel strongly that joint use agreements will improve kids’ health in communities across California, especially in places that have the fewest resources to help people be healthy. That’s why we’re supporting a new bill from Assemblymember Torlakson that would make it easier for all communities to make the most of the resources they already have.
