    When I think of Adrian Frutiger, I think of, well, Frutiger, which is sort of a humanist grotesk, maybe. Then I think of Myriad Pro. Of course Frutiger didn't design Myriad, but Myriad is pretty much...

    I understand what you are trying to achieve (and I have seen some other good examples in a similar style) but to me it doesn't read as 'EFM'. It seems incomplete. Needs more work. Or a different appr...

    There is no recognition of your initials without knowing what they are. Nicely executed but conception is weak. Try another avenue.

  • That's funny. I'd never call that a spinach salad. I'd call it bacon and shrimp salad. I guess because I would never order a spinach salad at a restaurant and expect to get that dish.

    • Around here, spinach salad is common, and it contains much of the same ingredients (though the shrimp is an addition).

      I can't eat raw spinach. Makes my mouth feel funny.

        I know what you mean about spinach. I find that it makes my mouth feel all grippy. But baby spinach doesn't do that. Just the grown up spinach.

          • A-brisket, a basket...

            Here's the recipe for the awesome brisket we had yesterday for our pot luck. She sliced it about 1/2 inch thick, and served on small buns.

            Beef Brisket

            4 Cans of Beef Consomme’ (Beef Broth)
            1 Large Bottle of Soy Sauce
            1 Clove Garlic Peeled and Chopped
            (You can use the jar garlic already minced 1 Tablespoon)
            1 Tablespoon of Vinegar
            1 Full Brisket 5 to 10 lbs
            (If you are doing a ˝ brisket cut ingredients in half)

            Mix all liquids and place brisket fat side up in cooker.
            It works best to marinate over night, but you do not have to.
            Depending on weight the cooking hours will vary. Test doneness with a fork. Also basting helps keep the juices flowing through the brisket.
            In a conventional oven place in covered dish and bake at 300 degrees for 3 to 5 hours, longer if needed.
            In crock pot on high all day approximately 8 hours.
            In a roaster (covered) cook at 300 degrees for 3 to 5 hours or longer depending on weight of brisket.

            Freezes well and is great with BBQ sauce. Reserve some of the liquid in a bowl to add when serving.

                • I guess you could put it in a roasting pan on the smoker...I really don't know and she looked at me like I was nuts when I asked her!

                  BJMR, it wasn't salty-tasting at all. I guess the vinegar cuts the sodium down. I'd be using low-sodium soy anyway. (stupid arteries!)

                  • hahaha i think this would probably do better in the oven anyways

                    • Actually I think it would do best in the slow cooker, since you're basically braising it. (this is making me hungry and it's 3 hours till lunch. Closing browser now!)
