Happy Birthday, J----- - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Happy Birthday Patrick! I notice from your profile that you didn't give your age. Are there any zero's involved?

    Let us know what you have for dinner. You know, the important stuff.

    Buon compleanno.

      my rant -

      For the past 20 years I have not worked on this solemn occasion. I either take a sick day or a vacation day depending on the balances. Well I have been usurped by the diaper dictator. Last month she was in the Dr. office and a follow-up was required. The schedule was for one month later. The wife being somewhat similar to me said hummm one month from now means 01 Mar 2007. I get home that night, one month ago and she informs me that I need to take the wee one to her appointment that day. I huff out geee couldn’t you make it for one day earlier as I will be taking that day off. Why would you being doing that?? As soon as she said it, it dawned. It must have slipped her mind. So I am here at work today and will be taking tomorrow off. She is trying to convince me that I like delayed gratification.

      In answer to the questions

      No zero’s this year but I am well on my way toward the goal of 112 but not at the half way point.

      No special dinner either - that is on delayed gratification. On Friday we are going to “Killer Shrimp”
      They serve 3 dishes although 2 are the same. Shrimp with shells and shrimp without shells. It is in a broth that is highly spiced. You are served a poor rendition (Yes I now compare all my bread to Master Jim) of french bread to soak up the sauce. The other dish is the same fare over spaghetti sauce (here is shrimp is peeled too). We actually start with an appetizer which in my house is the sweet potato pie with whip cream. Starting with desert has been a tradition that my dad, a sister, and I started one year when mom was out of town and we went out. I suggested we start with desert first as I knew we would be too stuffed at the end of the meal to get desert and this place in Denver had wonderful creations. It is now my tradition. The wee one is going to like this!
      thanks for the wishes.

      Now to call mom and wish her a Happy Birthday - after all she is the one who gave birth!
