8 hard-cooked eggs
2 little onions
a piece ginger
2 cloves of garlic
2 red pepper
1 bar lemongrass or lemon grass powder
1 teaspoon shrimp paste
1 teaspoon sambal olek or more if you want
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
6 tablespoons water
standard kitchen supplies
Simple two transistor stage pre-amplifier circuit, with a high impedance input stage suitable for musical instruments with passive pick-ups and an output stage with enough signal level to feed AV equipment. A brief description of the processes I used to fabricate the clear acrylic case I made. The input stage of this amplifier circuit is a Common Collector amplifier which has high input impedance, low output impedance, and high current gain. The output stage is a Common Emitter amplifier which has medium input and output impedance, and high power gain. The input and output is decoupled from the 3V DC supply power by C1, C2 & C3, R1 & R3 control the base current of Q1 & Q2, and R2 & R4 control the output current of each transistor stage respectively.
I used point-to-point construction for this circuit, however it could be built on a PC board if desired. I used aluminum duct tape to form power rails on the inside of the acrylic case. Since the tape can't be soldered I used small pieces of tape to fasten the connection points to the components. It was challenging to make reliable connections with this method. Alternatively copper tape, or wire could be used.
Parts List:I used male RCA plugs as the output termination because I wanted a compact inline connection, alternatively female RCA jacks could be used with patch cables. I connected the RCA output plugs in parallel to feed both the left and right channels of the AV receiver.
Standard AV RCA phono plug on center spacing is 13mm with a 10mm panel mount hole.
But they look so pretty...
Here’s the deal: You can make this one for under a dollar. Or Euro. Or Lira, whatever.
But it lacks of a few functions that one might evaluate as essential, such as internet connection, USB-ports, or in general... working.
Also, with 4.8", the display is a tad smaller than the original one.
The recipe that I propose below is very simple and consists of several elements and different textures. A light meal, despite the fried courgette flowers, slightly hot and fully spicy. The fish and vegetables in the roll are soft and delicate, the courgette flowers are crisp and tasty just like the sautéed vegetables and the little fritters. Serve with a fresh salad topped with a tasty vinaigrette, wholemeal bread or a nice piece of focaccia and you got a good meal that is really very, very satisfying!
Don’t give you the amounts for the ingredients because they depends on how many rolls you want to make and on the size of the vegetables at your disposal. Here, however, are the ingredients and the steps to make this dish:
•courgettes cut into sticks
•carrots cut into sticks
•yellow pepper cut into strips
•extra virgin olive oil
•vegetable oil for frying
For the batter:
•1 pinch of baking powder
