Thought I might as well ask in case there were any here in the know regarding food safety. :-)
Let's say I prepare a slowcooker dish with nothing but dried chickpeas, onion, garlic, serrano peppers, ginger, salt, and spices. I add the water and put on the lid.... and then forget to plug it in for about two hours and 45 minutes. Now that it's plugged in, it will be cooking on high for ten hours.
Do you think it will be safe to eat? I'm leaning toward "yes" since there is no meat or dairy or anything too terribly perishable in it. I'm not concerned about the chickpeas at all, but the fresh ingredients are giving me pause. The peppers and ginger were refrigerated, but the onions and garlic were not, though of course they need to be once they are cut.
So I dunno. I can't find anything online that talks about crockpot food safety for anything except meat. So I need you guys to tell me I'm being overly paranoid. ;-) .
I have, what I would categorize as, mild to moderate adult acne. (right now I have 3-4 pimples plus 4-5 marks of ones from a couple of weeks ago that refuse to comletely disappear. generally I get white heads and the larger ones that never actually break the surface.
So, what are some recommendations for cleansers/topicals?
I've tried Cetaphil (though I saw after I had been using it that I got the one for normal/combo skin, so maybe the one for oily skin is worth a try), Neutrogena (forget which one exactly), currently I tried switching to Clean and Clear Continuous Control to see if benzoyl Peroxide as opposed to salicylic acid would do it. I do have a salicylic acid topical which I've used in the past with decent results but was wary to use it in conjunction with the benzoyl peroxide cleaners.
I'm finding knitting very relaxing, and am halfway through a shawl, but suddenly got attacked by a case of "What if it's un-cool?" (I know, I'm supposed to be above all that...) So here's the questions:
If your grandma knit you a scarf would you wear it?
If you saw your grandma wearing a shawls she had knit would you think she looked dorky?
(curThe knitwork looks pretty good, and the colors are not crazy.)
I have some novelty silicone ice trays.
I want crystal clear ice "cubes". I've tried boiled water and distilled water. Neither worked. So TQC how do I get crystal clear ice?
I don't have access to unicorn tears or glacier water
