I was hesitant to make meals outside my comfort zone for us and I wasn’t very creative when it came to food.
My mother-in-law is an exceptional home cook; so I used to take the opportunity to ask questions about her methods whenever we went to eat at their house.
Monday night, our busiest night, the crockpot comes to the rescue.
Most of the time, however, I make 30-minute meals like this skillet lasagna.
The weapon will be capable of dazzling the enemy, disabling their systems and, if needed, completely destroying vessels.
The US Navy is not alone in its plans to create high power laser weapons.At the unveiling of the weapon, Rear Admiral Matthew Klunder said: 'Laser weapons are powerful, affordable and will play a vital role in the future of naval combat operations.'But while the 30 kilowatt laser proved successful, the US Navy was faced with challenges due to the low power of the weapon.Speaking to Business Insider, Donald Klick, director of business development for DRS Power and Control Technologies, said: 'The Navy will be looking at ships' servers to provide three times that much power.'To be putting out 150 kws, they (the laser systems) will be consuming 450 kws.'But a paper in 2014 explained why such a high powered laser would be so difficult to produce.Jeremy Sylvester, who wrote the paper, said: 'Naval ships, especially older platforms, were not built to deliver the power necessary to sustain use of a high-powered laser.'Some form of energy storage will be needed for vessels unable to accommodate the demands of a pulsed load on the order of hundreds of kilowatts.'According to Mr Sylvester, a system for storing power for on-demand use by a laser weapon would be made of capacitors, rechargeable batteries or flywheels.The service would ideally be able to recharge a laser's energy reserves almost instantaneously, allowing the laser to fire indefinitely.Together, we hope to inspire you to reclaim your kitchen and make more homemade meals.Hundreds of you commented on the post and shared your love for recipes that keep on giving.While this was over a decade ago, I haven’t forgotten where I started.Making recipes as easy as possible for my readers is something I think about constantly.Earlier this month, the UK Ministry of Defence revealed that it has awarded a £30 million ( million) contract to create a laser weapon which can track targets at distances and operate in varied weather conditions.If the prototype is successful, the UK's first laser weapons could come into service by the mid-2020s.
