Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I had a nightmare where I got in an elevator then the ceiling began to crunch down. My phone couldn't get a signal & I knew I'd die there.

"I can't find enough books / to spend all of my monographs budget." (<--- actually said to me once by an ARL librarian) - Catherine Pellegrino
It may seem odd but we have some incredibly specific book/collection endowments. It can actually be hard to find things to buy that fit the parameters... - Lisa Hinchliffe
The monograph budget thing is actually very true here... - aaron
^ we have a horror gift fund. V difficult to find academic texts that fit the criteria. - Marie
before my last pow changed it, I hated having to spend x amount of money on a certain department. art i burned through in about 12-15 books, but other areas like history...I mean there were plenty of books I could buy, but we didn't need them. And a couple of areas, like psychology, wanted specific databases or journals but i couldn't ever get them. We eventually just went to a central pot which worked a heck of a lot better. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Database funds should be segregated from monographs right? - aaron from Flucso

Yes. Got feedback on this early yesterday from many users. It's cold comfort to note we are not alone. Not sure if it is "good" though a small number of vendors are so dominant that when they go down they take out a fair number of the university libraries together. - aaron from Flucso

so, i've never been much of a pesto person. convince me i need to change my ways and give me your best recipes/ideas.
I love pesto. I usually pick some up at the farmers market with some bread. I love pine nuts. - Rodfather from Android
I would suggest going to Genova and try some pesto there, but right now it's not the right time ... - d☭snake
anyhow pesto is not hard to make at home, handmade pesto can be lots better than commercial pesto, the key is good olive oil - d☭snake
btw if you use a mixer instead of a mortar remember to set the lowest speed possible, pesto must not heat during mixing - d☭snake
Super fresh ingredients make the difference. That said, if you make a large quantity pesto freezes beautifully - just don't add the cheese if you plan on freezing it. The recipe I used and liked came from a now-former friend's cookbook, which I can't remember the name of, unfortunately. - Corinne L
Use pecorino and you can't go wrong. In my humble opinion. :) It's the heart of the genovese pesto. Well, besides the genovese basil. I LOVE pesto! Just another way to ingest cheese! I'd never have guessed you weren't a pesto person! Your foodie tendencies lend you to loving it. Just try all the varieties until you find your flavor. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
yes, but howwwwww should I eat it? That's what I need. :) - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
I get some of this and dip it in the pesto and then put it in my mouth. - Rodfather
I like it with some angel hair pasta too. - Rodfather
We make a pesto cream sauce based on Pioneer Woman's recipe. Also, pesto pizza is tasty - ~Courtney F
i found a recipe for a pesto chicken tart that looks pretty tasty. - holly #ravingfangirl
I like it with pasta in the winter, because the taste reminds me of summer. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Pesto cream sauce on pasta, usually, for me. All the times. - Laura
I like it more as a topping or spread than tossed with pasta directly - something like on a sandwich, or on chicken or beef when cooked or served. - Jennifer Dittrich
pesto, ricotta, eggs, and spinach stuffed into chicken breasts. pesto in cream sauce over pasta. pesto mayo on grilled chicken sandwiches. Pesto, parmesan, and mayo slathered on swordfish and broiled. - Jenica

Panties are unproductive and a waste of time? - Brent Schaus from iPhone
errybody knows i am anti-pants. - holly #ravingfangirl
I've been avoiding mine. I'm scared. - Katy S
totally understand that. hence why it was so out of control. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
Is your pantry equipped to outlast the apocalypse? - Andrew C (✔)

My spices are currently out of alphabetical order, which should give you some idea of how out of control my life is right now. #pantryhorrors - Marie
Oh, and Brent made me LOL. - bentley
This reminds me of a song my band wrote called Pantywaist. - Laura Norvig
on a more relevant note, just pretend you are moving. I instructed my husband to throw out EVERYTHING that was past due or remotely looked dusty/old/ - Laura Norvig
I recently went through the pantry. And was baffled at how much stuff was out of date WHEN I MOVED IT TO NV FROM IL! I felt really chastised at that point, and have been super careful about buying anything I might not need right now. (and I totally read it as panties, the first three times I read the post...) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
one of my big problems is seeing something and picking it up because i think i need it... only to get home and discover I already bought it. I am really trying to break myself of this and not go off-list too much. - holly #ravingfangirl

Cheese is terrible. You people are misguided. - Miriella
Wow. They just tweeted me back and said that an employee found glass in their pickles during prep, so they removed all pickles from all stores. Crazy. - Miriella from Android
huh. I suppose that would be an acceptable solution. - ellbeecee
our Five Guys was out when we went a couple of weeks ago, too, but they didn't tell us why. seems like an extreme response though. just get some new pickles. - Christa
A couple of weeks ago? Dayum. Seriously. Go down the street and get some alternate pickles in the meantime. - Miriella from Android
