  • E-mail from Torsten, DL1THM
    • Thanks for bringing up the "Pat" winlink client. I was looking for a open-source client running natively on Linux for quite a while, so I was happy to get aware of that. Maybe one should mention that while the "Pat" client itself is free and open-source and runs nicely cross-platform, it does NOT include a WINMOR driver/TNC. I can work WITH the official Windows-only WINMOR driver and this seems to run under wine. However, it is unfortunately still not possible to run WINMOR on a single-board computer like the Raspberry Pi. Keep up the good work, I really LOVE your show!! 73s, Torsten DL1THM. P.S.: maybe worth mentioning in some future episode as an real open-source alternative to Winlink: the PSKMAIL project.

Segment 5 (Cheryl's Recipe Corner)

  • Key Lime Pie
  • Description
    • For me, summer cooking involves easy recipes that are quick to fix and require little to no time with the stove or oven on.  This is one of those recipes. It definitely takes care of my craving for easy-to-make desserts, and key lime pie is one of my favorites.
  • Ingredients
    • 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
    • 3 cups sweetened condensed milk
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 3/4 cup key lime juice
    • 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, combine condensed milk, sour cream, lime juice, and lime rind. Mix well and pour into graham cracker crust. Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 8 minutes, until tiny pinhole bubbles burst on the surface of pie. DO NOT BROWN! Chill pie thoroughly before serving. Garnish with lime slices and whipped cream if desired.

  • Easy Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas
  • Description
    • Russ and I are huge fans of fajitas and this is an easy way to prep our favorite dish without having to fire up the grill. Our favorite fajitas were Chili's Mushroom-Jack Chicken, which had mushrooms, bacon and jack cheese melted over them. So this recipe is similar to those.
  • Ingredients
    • 1 large onion
    • 1 medium red bell pepper
    • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 package (1 oz) Fajita seasoning mix
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • Flour tortillas (6 inch)
    • Sour Cream
    • Salsa
    • Chopped fresh cilantro (Optional)
  • Directions
    • Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cut onion and bell pepper into even slices; place in baking dish. Cut chicken breasts into thin strips; add to vegetables in dish. Sprinkle with seasoning mix; drizzle with oil. Stir until combined and pieces are coated. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Spoon small amount of chicken and veggies onto each tortilla. Top each with sour cream, salsa and cilantro, or your favorite fajita toppings.
