CleverNickName's Cranberry Sauce
Combine 1 cup of your favorite wine, a 16oz. jar of your favorite orange marmalade, a pinch of salt, and a pound of fresh cranberries in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until thickened and all the cranberries have burst. Sweeten with honey to taste. Serve warm, or pour into a mold and chill until set.
CleverNickName's Buttermilk Biscuits
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Sift together 2 cups flour, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. baking powder, 2 Tbsp. sugar, and 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Use a hand cheese grater to grate a whole stick of unsalted, chilled butter into the flour mixture, then work it in with your fingers until it resembles coarse sand. Add 1 cup of cold buttermilk, stirring just until the mixture comes together into a shaggy dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a 6" x 8" rectangle. Cut it in half, stack the halves on top of each other, and press it back out into that same rectangle. Cut it in half again, stack it again, and press it back out into that rectangle again. Do this 4 times total, then cut it into a dozen 2" x 2" squares.
Place the squares on a parchment-lined baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and bake until golden brown. Serve hot.
CleverNickName's Nips & Tatters
Peel and chop 2 pounds of potatoes and 2 pounds of turnips. Rinse well, then dump them into a cooking pot and cover with 1 inch of water. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until tender. Drain.
Stir in half a stick of butter, 1 tablespoon of finely-chopped chives, 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley, and 1/2 cup buttermilk. Mash with a potato masher until smooth, then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
CleverNickName's Hot Toddy
To a 12 oz. glass mug, add 1 tablespoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon. Stir well, then add 1 stick of cinnamon, 1 star of anise (or 2 cloves, if you prefer), 1 coin of fresh peeled ginger about the size of a nickel, and a strip of orange peel about as long as your index finger. Add 2 oz. of your favorite Kentucky bourbon, and fill with boiling water. Serve.
A text I sent to my sister earlier. The guy was a beast of a man. Bald head, tattooed arms. I was very proud of my line about a mountain in a gun belt.
So Woodstock has an officer that could be Goldberg's "little" brother. I'm in the restroom at Racetrac when this mountain in a gun belt opens the door and just stands there. I thought for a sec he was looking for me. He was just waiting for me to move away from the sink so he could use it.
Flavor text is now Fort, Reflex and Will. Or as like to put it. The Flavor is a failed roll. Fort check/nat 1/ The assassin's knife grazes you but there is equal amounts of green goo as blood. Your finger tips go numb and as it begins to register that you have been poisoned your chest siezes and your last breath is a wheeze.
I have this game Little Alchemist 2 on my phone. In it you combine things to make new things. I've been able to make animals, livestock, bacteria, aliens, and robots. I even birthed a phoenix .I cant seem to create humans.
It's Little Alchemy 2. Since then I got a horse, frog, lizard, turtle, fish, and egg. From the fish came the egg. From the egg came the omelet. Still no human. I tried combining life and gun, that didn't do it. I thought it might give me an American at least. That would have been funny. I may have to develop an ape first.
Edit: why didn't I think of this sooner. Life + clay= human.
