Subject:I've got it all!
Time:01:05 am
Well, everything I've ordered recently. Today my George Foreman grill arrived. It is "Champ Size". So, a grill with enough room for two hamburgers or something. It's so high tech, the power button looks strangely like a plug! I wonder how long it will take to cook a frozen chicken breast. The directions say 9 minutes for a chicken breast, dunno if frozen. It's supposed to let fat drain (since the grill is slanted). I'm not sure how much would really drain. We'll see.

Got the music stand for my bike yesterday. It may even be sturdy enough to hold a laptop. Now, to see if it will actually get me _on_ my bike (which is the point). If I can get myself to cycle while reading/studying/watching tv/playing on lappytop, that'd be great. Otherwise, it's BOOORING. Sure, I can crochet (but it's kinda hard to wipe off sweat while holding yarn and a hook). Ahh, the joys of lazy!

In other news. 16.5 weeks till I start nursing school! Monday the South Street Bridge will be closed. It's been there FOREVER! In 2 years, the replacement will be up and ready. Shame they can't do it like Germany, and just build a second bridge right next to the first. I'll miss the bridge, and walking and looking down (on the pavement) and seeing the water flowing underneath because of the holes. I don't mind old, fragile things. I just hope the new bridge doesn't suck.

I've never done frozen. But in my GF grill a thawed chicken breast takes 7 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the breast, to go from raw to fully cooked.

I'll also mention that I am kind of anal about meat and poultry being fully cooked. So for my last paragraph, "fully cooked" is defined as I can stick my Sargent-Welch lab thermometer's probe in to any random spot and the temperature is at least 190 degrees for poultry.

I'm not anal about chicken. I use a thermometer when cooking a whole, stuffed chicken. But, if I get impatient before it's 170, it's food. I figure it's important to keep my gut up to snuff. Wouldn't want a few stray bacteria to be able to get over on me. Not sure when I'll start the frozen experiment.

Lots. Well, obviously it depends on how greasy the meat is to start with, but if it's got lots of fat in it, you'll see it all dripping off the end of the grill.

I mostly use mine to cook steak - on the grounds that if it involves a gadget instead of a cooker, then it's not 'cooking' and therefore I'm capable of doing it :-p

You'll miss the bridge with or without the closing because eventually it's going to fall into the schulykill on it's own.
