Scott grilled up some pork chops with dinner tonight. I made a spicy marinade — about 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2T maple syrup, three cloves of garlic crushed, and freshly ground chili pepper. Marinaded the pork in the sauce for about half an hour then dredged them in corn starch Served with yams (butter, cinnamon, maple syrup, and mascarpone) and steamed edamame.
Anya and I made pancakes on the grill today — I put the batter in and flip the first time, then she takes them out of the pan. She wanted to toss the cooked pancake on the grill to get some “grill marks” … which was pretty cool.
The batter is an extra vanilla-y buttermilk pancake recipe:
1t baking powder
1t baking soda
3T maple syrup
It’s actually a powdered buttermilk, so that’s half a cup of buttermilk powder and two cups of water. I mixed up some “pancake mix” so next time we’re making pancakes … we just need to add water, oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and an egg.
We made a deep-dish pizza in a cast iron pan for dinner tonight. Grilled at 550F for about 23 minutes — which was a little too long. Tomato sauce made with tomatillo, garlic, and serrano chillis. Topped with ground beef and onions. Shredded cheddar cheese. Dough was mixed up yesterday, so spent lots of time rising.
Since it’s the third time I’ve had to do this so far this year, I’m going to write down how I disable IPv6 in Fedora. Add these lines to /etc/sysctl.conf
[lisa@server~]# grep ipv6 /etc/sysctl.conf net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6=1
Then load the sysctl settings (sysctl -p) or reboot.
Without IPv6, if you do X-redirection, you may get an error indicating the redirection was refused. In journalctl, there’s an error “error: Failed to allocate internet-domain X11 display socket”. Evidently you’ve got to configure sshd to use IPv4 by setting “AddressFamily inet” in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
[lisa@server~/]# grep AddressFamily /etc/ssh/sshd_config AddressFamily inet
In the process of troubleshooting UPNP/DLNA on our MythTV server, I learned that you can send logging verbosity settings while the server is running. Using the mythbackend binary with the –setverbose flag, you can specify logging level. For example:
mythbackend --setverbose http:debug,upnp:debug
What items can you set levels on? It’ll conveniently tell you — “all” or “none” override existing settings, everything else will update the current logging levels (i.e. if I’ve already got http and upnp in debug, I can use “–setverbose audio:debug” to add audio to the list of things in debug mode).
[mythuser@server /var/log/mythtv/]# mythbackend -v help Verbose debug levels. Accepts any combination (separated by comma) of: all - ALL available debug output audio - Audio related messages channel - Channel related messages chanscan - Channel Scanning messages commflag - Commercial detection related messages database - Display all SQL commands executed decode - MPEG2Fix Decode messages dsmcc - DSMCC carousel related messages dvbcam - DVB CAM debugging messages eit - EIT related messages file - File and AutoExpire related messages frame - MPEG2Fix frame messages general - General info gpu - GPU OpenGL driver messages gpuaudio - GPU Audio Processing messages gpuvideo - GPU video rendering messages gui - GUI related messages http - HTTP Server messages idle - System idle messages jobqueue - JobQueue related messages libav - Enables libav debugging media - Media Manager debugging messages mheg - MHEG debugging messages most - Most debug (nodatabase,notimestamp,noextra) network - Network protocol related messages none - NO debug output osd - On-Screen Display related messages playback - Playback related messages process - MPEG2Fix processing messages record - Recording related messages refcount - Reference Count messages rplxqueue - MPEG2Fix Replex Queue messages schedule - Scheduling related messages siparser - Siparser related messages socket - socket debugging messages system - External executable related messages timestamp - Conditional data driven messages upnp - UPnP debugging messages vbi - VBI related messages xmltv - xmltv output and related messages

55 Days of Grilling: Day 1Course: DinnerCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
- Roasted Garlic Buns
4 cups flour
1/2 cup wheat gluten
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1-2 Tbsp roasted garlic
1 egg (pre-bake wash)
1 Tbsp salted butter (post-bake wash)
2 lbs 80% ground beef
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 tsp ground pepper
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp chili garlic sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 medium eggs
1/2 cup panko crumbs
- Combine yeast with about a cup of water and 1 Tbsp sugar
- Combine all ingredients except for the egg and salted butter in mixer and kneed on medium-low speed for five minutes.
- Allow dough to rise for two hours.
- Deflate dough and form into rolls (I make Kaiser style rolls — form a long log of dough, then tie in a knot). Let rise for one hour
- Preheat oven to 400
- Beat egg and brush on risen rolls. Allow to sit for a minute, then brush another layer of egg.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Brush with melted salted butter and allow to cool on a wire rack
- Mix all ingredients together
- These were really good — Scott fried up some bacon in a cast iron pan so we had bacon cheese burgers.
Scott’s been really excited to start grilling again now that the temps are warmer. We’ve got a little grill right by the family room door, and we’re ready to grill. The goal is to grill something each day for the next 55 days — starting with burgers for dinner tonight. There’s a long list of things we want to try grilling — especially grilled pineapple (so I’ll have to get to the grocery store soon!) and how-high-can-this-thing-go pizza. Hopefully we can get above 600 degrees and make some really nice pizza crust.
