The GOP lost a bid to keep Green Party candidates on the ballot in Montana. I understand the sentiments of those liberals who vote Green Party, but your attempts to start a more liberal party have done nothing but create a more conservative United States.
Montana’s Republican secretary of state on Friday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to restore the names of Green Party candidates to the ballot after a similar request was rejected last month. https://t.co/rM9edwcVYW
The amount of stupidity packed into this 1 minute and 39 second clip is astounding and soul draining. And that also goes for the reporter who just parrots the covidiots’ QAnon talking points without interjecting the word “mistakenly” or “deluded” or “opposed to all available science” or “fucking crazy” at any time during the report.
A recipe for flan pâtissier. I only allow myself to have dessert on the weekends. Last weekend were the half moons, (which turned out really well) and the week is young so I may not be in the mood for these come Saturday, but flan pâtissier is already a strong contender.
I mentioned this morning that I was going to try the half moon recipe. I did! I did! My icing smoothing skills are lacking but they taste amazing. If you hate frosting then this isn’t your thing (Mrs. C stayed away) but that’s your problem.
Only thing was the recipe said to flatten them down a bit before you put them in the oven and I may have flattened them a bit too much. They needed to be a bit puffier and not so much like a disk. But notes have been made, and next time will be better.
Half moons! There is a bakery close to my house that makes these. They look like a black and white cookie but are more like a mini-cake with buttercream frosting. I haven’t been to the bakery at all this year (thanks covid!) and am craving one big time. I did some googling and found this recipe which duplicates the original half moons made at Hemstrought’s Bakery (now closed) which was located in upstate New York. This recipe makes 30 cookies so I think I should cut that in half. I’m thinking about giving these a try tonight. Why not? It’s Friday.
Kristi Noem’s South Dakota “announced Tuesday that it is using federal coronavirus relief funds to pay for a $5 million tourism ad campaign aimed at drawing people to the state, even as it emerges as one of the nation’s top hot spots for COVID-19 infections.” — A4, @StarTribune
Let’s try a Trump/Covid free version of this today. Even though both are currently devastating everything they touch, I’m going to try to take a break from it, even if just for my own sanity. And it’s so humid right now that I’m basically air swimming so I need some pleasant things. I’m sure you understand.
A homemade hummus recipe. One thing I really like about this recipe is how he prepares the garlic oil and garlic which both can then be used in other recipes as well. (Roasting garlic and infused garlic oil is just so amazing. It cuts out the sharpness in raw garlic so that you can enjoy the rest of your day/night without scaring off anybody who comes closer to you than 15 feet)
Actress Dame Diana Rigg, known for roles from The Avengers to Games of Thrones, dies aged 82https://t.co/gbJ7BUmGSv
RIP Diana Rigg. She stole every scene in Game of Thrones and when people talk about the Avengers, it takes me a bit to realize they are talking about some CGI superhero shit show and not the one with Emma Peel:
Inspired by yesterday’s video, I think this will be my first venture into a new type of breakfast for my palate. Tamago Kake Gohan. Although I may wait until I have better quality eggs then the one currently in the fridge. Developing!!
This video may not interest you unless you’re a cello geek (like me) or are really into classical music but it’s the great Rostropovitch talking about one of my favorite musical pieces. Everybody knows (or had heard) Bach’s prelude to the first cello suite in G. I think it’s a law that it has to be played at least once at every wedding. But the 2nd prelude is just so much deeper and more soulful. Granted, I’m a minor key kinda guy.
