And this is where you guys are supposed to be slightly amazed at me, a female, knowing this. I've had good mechanics over the years who will happily explain things to me until I understand them. I have a story about a new car, a dealership, and a tranny that needed "about 100 miles of driving" to work the lubricants through...and roughly 50 miles of factory warranty left on the car.

I'm not surprised at all.

Not to go off on an Addie-style tangent, but at the school I attended in the 70s it was mandatory for every student - male and female - to take both shop (woodworking or auto) and home economics classes. Consequently, I knew a few girls who could rebuild a carburetor, as well as guys who could make finger sandwiches.

Yeah, geez, in today's day and age, just the mention of "oh look, I'm a girl doing boy things" will get your head bitten off.

But kudos for all babes with the pedal to the metal.

My wife has a lead foot, so, I just hang on and close my eyes a lot.

Looking at the photo, the meat side is breakfast sausage, and the rice side is cooked white rice. The center is a green jalepeņo from my garden stuffed with cheese, and the red garnish is red jalepeņo from my garden. The wrapper, that would be seaweed on real sushi, is bacon.

I cooked it on my Weber Kettle, indirect heat.

I do not remember what I made for the dipping sauce. I believe it had apple cider vinegar and some soy sauce. I don't recall what else.

The photoshoot was fun, too. I used a license plate and some "redneck" chopsticks.

If you are looking for a fun and tasty party finger food, this may provide some inspiration.

CD, which online site was this on btw?

My '75 high school called it family living.

I was in band, chorus, drama, and just about every other activity in HS, so I was exempted from home ec. Girls weren't allowed to take shop. Seems odd now.

I learned how to sew and cook from my grandmother, and learned woodworking from DH. I have a nicely appointed workshop, and DH says I'm better at it than he is now. My dad had his own car dealership, so I learned a bit from him too.

The "economics" part of home economics was the most informative part of the class, or at least I thought so. We learned how to create household budgets, balance a checkbook, etc. Real life skills. Schools should still be teaching this sort of thing, in my opinion.

A few years ago my adult daughter came to me, checkbook in hand, and asked me to show her how to write a check. I couldn't believe she didn't know how to do this. Apparently, it's not something they teach kids anymore.

It depends on the state. It's a requirement in Virginia that students take a course in Economics and Personal Finance.

I think I learned about the checkbook in business class. It was an elective, but we learned good stuff.

I went to an all-girls high school the second half of the 1960's. Our "Home Arts" course was 1/2 year cooking, 1/2 year sewing. Growing up with a "Nana" in the kitchen (one of my Great Aunts lived with us from when I was 7), I could cook better than the nun teaching the class. No matter how good the sewing teacher was, she should be happy I didn't sew my 10 thumbs together. Didn't really need shop. I'm an "only", so when Dad did things around the house, I got to be his pseudo-son. When you describe a flossing devise as looking like a coping saw to your hygienist, you know you spent a lot of time around sawdust.
