Automatic Rice Shelling Machine

Shelling Rice

 

 

 

We took mom with us when we got our rice shelled. She was very impressed with the machine, so I thought you guys might be interested too.

 

 

 

We buy our rice in huge brown bags weighing around sixty lbs. ive blogged about those before, a long time ago. It comes unshelled, which I prefer, but most people want white rice.

 

 

 

So, we take our rice to the local automated shelling machine.

Put our coin in, press a button, pour in the rice, and let it do its work.

The rice comes out this shoot shelled and very warm.

If you want to keep the husks, you can. They can be used to make Japanese pickles.

 

 

 

Afterwards, the rice will be hot for a long time, so I have to leave the bag open the rest of the day to prevent it from getting moisture inside.

 

 

 

So anyhow, this is a common chore for me!

Nearly Raw Horse

OMG I ate nearly raw horse……. Photobucket
BLAHHHHHH I thought it was just very slightly cooked beef….. It looks like beef right?

Well it wasn’t. it was horse.

And it was either raw or close to it.
I think they just evaporated the blood out…or something….
And it was good. I wont lie. It was tasty. I hate myself!!
I was a vegetarian for 6 years…..not sure what happened lol.

Anyhow we ate this horse at a bar the other day while meeting with a friend. We enjoyed many great tasting snacks along with our very carnivorous dish…

This sorta reminds me of when I used to go to yakiniku restaurants where you can choose your own meat to cook….. I would always choose the meat with the lowest fat content…. And then VS would always say….You chose cow tongue again?? You must really like that stuff!*

and I would hurl….

Im the kind of retard that repeats mistakes over and over.

And the kind of retard that drinks too much and takes self portraits in the bathroom HA! Photobucket They had a lot of nice little goodies to take for free in the ladies bathroom…napkins (THOSE KIND), cottonswabs, tissues, oil blotting papers etc. The men didn’t get crap in their bathroom VS said. Photobucket

Have you ever tried horse or something weird like that?
