Haha, and you might get fired, you're just a reporter, so watch out! :twisted:

I just noticed Eric is a Manager now, he did suck at managing all the outings he planned. :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

As you know, there are 2 ways to become a manager. Because of your skills or because of your long existence in the organisation...

So are you finally coming? No gecko I promise :^o

Oh you're lucky I just deleted an email I received last week, showing "pigeons" served in restaurants in China. In fact they were rats...

Si! es muy sabrosa...

Cuy frito

Image

Numero de unidades: 4
Grado de dificultad: medio
Costo: medio


Ingredientes


2 cuyes "garas" (machos)
2 cucharadas escasas de sal
2 cucharadas de ajo molido
1/2 cucharadita de cebolla molida
1 libra de manteca de chancho para freír
1 cucharada de comino


Preparacion


Pele los cuyes con agua hirviente, extraiga sus intestinos y lávelos en agua fría. Haga una pasta con los condimentos y aliñe el cuy refregándolo por dentro y por fuera. Déjelo en esta adobo por cuatro horas.

Póngalo luego a sancochar entero en una olla de barro con muy poca agua, durante diez a quince minutos.

Cuele el caldo, corte el cuy en presas y fríalas en una olla honda de barro que contenga suficiente manteca hirviente para cubrirlas. Déjelas dorar lentamente, extráigalas de la grasa y escúrrelas sobre papel absorbente.

Sirva las presas bien calientes, con papas, mote - pillo y ají. Cuando no se tiene espacio y facilidad de asar en brazas de carbón, se prepara el cuy frito. En esta forma se necesita menos tiempo y menos manos.

I often grilled gecko's. Sometimes in the Microwave, sometimes in the toaster. Frozen a few as well.

I would say by accident, or may be to experiment... Look at his picture, doesn't he look like he's himself inside a microwave? :lol:

Purely by accident. Not knowing the little fellows were there at the time.

An an uncontrolled ascent from around 350 feet to the surface would make me look just like the little animated gif's of the animal exploding in the microwave. Embolism's will do that to a person.
