Simple Knife Working Vise

I have the same one at home but now I had to make another one for the northern germany refuge. It’s a simple construction, consisting of not much more than a wooden block with two holes for attaching clamps and a smaller block at the bottom so I can mount it to the bench vise. Additionally, I added two small holes on the top for a “stop-screw” that keeps verything in place when working.


Farcydes Top 10 Recipes 2019

Now for another year, here’s my Top 10 Recipes. I’d appreciate if you give them a try, enjoy and let me know how they worked out for you! Let’s start:


Ugly Firestarters and How They Work

We got a new fireplace installed in the northern germany refuge last october, so I made a batch of my ugly firestarters. Here’s a short video on how they do their job.

 


Recommended Read: “The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.” by Neal Stephenson

I have already sufficiently stated here that I really like Neal Stephenson’s novels a whole lot. So this is another one from him (this time together with co-writer Nicole Galland). Written entertainingly, consistent and simply fun and joyful to read. The story is… somewhat special, but it was well worth my time…

Mehhh… Just read it, you won’t regret.


Gyoza Dipping Sauce

I found a recipe for a Gyoza dipping sauce by Adam Liaw on YouTube (he’s such a pleasant and down-to-earth guy!)

That sauce does really taste exactly like the stuff that I always had in the japanese noodle restaurant close to my workplace! So here’s the (stolen and) “Farcyde-approved” 🙂 recipe:

Ingredients:

60 g yellow rock sugar
150 ml soy sauce
300 ml Chinkiang black vinegar
150 ml red vinegar (optional, otherwise just use 450 ml Chinkiang)


Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs with Red Wine Sauce

Slow braised short ribs – a delight to me. Although a very cheap cut they come out delicious when done with a little attention, time and some patience.

There’s no magic to it – on the contrary, you’ll have about half an hour of work and will then be able to laze around for 2 1/2 hours! Here’s my recipe:


Romanesco and Bacon Stew

I had two heads of romanesco and a batch of bacon left over from another meal. So I threw everything together and the outcome was indeed very delicious (yes, I will have to work on my presentation). It’s an unpretentious and simple recipe for leftover usage.


Fireplace Installation

We finally have the Fireplace installed in the living room in the NGR. The whole thing has to be approved by the local chimney sweeper in charge, so we rather had the actual hooking up of the smoke tube done by a professional. Alas, lugging around the heavy and bulky woodburner was more than enough work for us.


Laundry Flip Folding Board

This is neither new nor in any way special, but I wanted to make my own for simplifying doing my laundry: The T-Shirt-Fold-O-Mat.


Colorful Sunrise

Just a friendly reminder on how colorful a sunrise can be in the countryside 🙂
