Rough night last night. 1 for 6. Had to move on to WoWs, even though I did get to kill Grant ;)

Welcome to the forums sgt. flint :)

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:38 PM)

Hey All......anyone out there from 2 years ago remember me?

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 PM)

just started playing WOT again and looking for a clan or group

bergsteiger : (25 April 2017 - 08:31 AM)

Crazy night. Got all my wins AFTER I quit tooning. Very unusual.

The_Dad : (25 April 2017 - 08:36 AM)

similar experience last night... all my wins were BEFORE I started platooning

NeoGP : (25 April 2017 - 10:25 AM)

Hey Flint!

xtc4 : (25 April 2017 - 11:28 AM)

With new mm, having good players at the top of the list seems to make a huge difference. And platooning seems to almost always put you at bottom of the list. So perhaps it makes sense that you good players are winning when playing solo.

Welcome to the forums ToerryFutty :)

Archaic : (25 April 2017 - 11:14 PM)

Yes, platoons seem to be pretty gimped with 3-5-7

sgt. flint : (26 April 2017 - 02:12 AM)

Hey Neo, yes i remember you. any others from the old crew still running?

NeoGP : (26 April 2017 - 10:17 AM)

not sure man..I haven't played wot in 2+ years, alot of changes throughout the 5 clans

SGrant7 : (26 April 2017 - 12:05 PM)

Haven't been on much in the last few days, but are 2 man platoons fairing much better?

bergsteiger : (26 April 2017 - 02:38 PM)

Platooning doesn't seem as big of an issue as Tier 8s. Don't think I've had a single game that I was top tier in an VIII

I usually just visit the WoT forums but have recently been exploring the site a bit more. I have a facebook album that chronicles my cooking efforts which I started after my parents gave me The America's Test Kitchen Quick Family Cookbook, and I thought I would start a thread here as well. I'll begin with some of my more successful efforts. The first recipe I attempted was Spaghetti with Pesto Meatballs (ATK) from the America's Test Kitchen book. The cooking went pretty well and only one meatball fell apart. I enjoyed the recipe but the sauce was a little too chunky for my taste.

Rustic Chicken Tart with Spinach and Brie (ATK)
Got fancy with this recipe. The tart was good but eating the brie rind was a bit weird, too chewy.

Spinach and Bacon Phyllo Cups (ATK)
These were time consuming but very good, i.e. bacon. Its not easy to find phyllo cups in North Dakota.

Tricolored Goat Cheese Terrine (ATK)
This recipe went surprisingly well as I'm not really familiar with using goat cheese or making a terrine. The layering could use some work. Tasted great and was much larger then I expected. From now on I will only serve the finest of terrines.

Tequila and Lime Turkey Chili (ATK)
I'm not a fan of conventional chili so this lighter and less spicy version appealed to me. When cooking with alcohol I think the appropriate proportions are one for the food and two for the cook. Chili was very tasty and served with lime wedges, avocado, and scallions.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken (Allrecipes)
Okay, this is a more recent recipe (note the No Shave November beard) and from here on out I will try and update the thread as new recipes are attempted. This recipe was super easy and I cubed the chicken instead of shredding it. The most time consuming part was chopping the fresh cilantro. I would definitely make this recipe again.

I've actually wanted to get their "Complete Book" that has all their recipes from inception through the 2015 season. That stuff looks absolutely delicious!

Their books are really good, lots of useful info. My only complaint is that they often use some rather obscure ingredients that are difficult to find where I live.

Pasta e Fagioli Soup (The Country Cook)
The soup turned out well, I think it is based off of a soup available at Olive Garden. Probably added too much pasta as I didn't check the recipe and just put in the whole box I bought, still good though.

Kumla (Family recipe)
Kumla is a Scandinavian dish that my family makes on special occasions. It is essentially potato dumplings that are boiled in ham stock. We eat them with lots of butter and salt. Most people who didn't grow up with it don't like kumla; but its not as weird as some other Scandinavian food, such as lutefisk. The photos are from Thanksgiving and we'll be making kumla again on Xmas.
