(a few days late) the Steelers win

Filed under: — adrian @ 10:43 pm

Yeah, I’m a few days late on this, but on Thursday I watched the Steelers win at Zack’s in Millbrae with Mike and Dug.

Charlie Batch did pretty well. Willie Parker looked great on a few runs and the handful of screen play passes he caught.

Polamalu continues to look better and better each game he plays. This guy is incredible. His interception was really skillful, as was Porter’s. Porter kissed Cowher after that and Cowher was fine with it.

Heath Miller’s 87 yard TD reception interception was sort of funny. There was this guy at the bar that had high-fived everyone before Heath had passed the 50. Cowher thought he was fast, but it took pretty long for him to get anywhere. I mean, he had time check the jumbotron to see if the defense was gaining on him.

If I were a Dolphins fan, I might be pissed about the missed challenge on the Heath Miller touchdown, but it’s sort of laughable that the coach waited that long (~1 minute) when he was obviously out and then did a dainty underhand toss right before the snap and then just sort of pointed to it when no one saw it.

Here’s a slide show from the Post Gazette and their write up.

banana walnut chocolate chip cookies

Filed under: — adrian @ 10:12 pm

Judit and I made a new recipe yesterday. It is a modified version of a modified version of the Consumer Reports chocolate chip cookie recipe. My brother and I modified the original recipe years ago. Those modifications are in brackets ([]). The new modifications (for the banana walnut chocolate chip cookies) are in braces ({}). So basically, this is three recipes in one!


  • 3/4 Cup white sugar
  • Cup brown sugar, packed

Then cream with 2 sticks butter


  • 2 eggs, beat well
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Add slowly:

  • 2 1/4 Cup flour {2 1/2 cups for banana walnut cookies}
  • 1 tsp baking soda [1/2 tsp in modified recipe]
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • {2 ripe medium sized bananas}
  • {1.5-2 handfuls (maybe 1/2 cup) chopped walnuts}

Bake 375 degrees for 9 minutes [8.5 in modified recipe]

They turned out really moist and slightly fluffy. They are really good hot and still good the day after.
