Dueling magicians on rooftops in… Washington DC!!! Yeah, major cop-out by putting the Washington Monument in the background. Basically, it filled up empty space. I could think of a lot of gutter jokes right now with that thing, but I should really stop.

Molasses Cookies

I tried this from All Recipes.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

Directions

  1. Mix together the melted margarine, one cup sugar, and egg.
  2. Add the molasses.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the molasses mixture.
  5. Chill dough for one hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  7. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and roll them in the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar.
  8. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Modifications

  • I used butter.
  • I added probably close to two teaspoons of cinnamon.
  • I had no ginger, so I added a little more cloves.
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar to roll the dough in at the end is a little too much. I’d say use about 1/4 cup.

After Thoughts

Chewy and spicy! Well, spicy in the sense that you can really taste the spices. Not the other kind which is what I thrive on, but I digress. The cookies yield a nice bittersweet taste (more on the sweet side) and go excellent with a glass of cold milk.



Box Bean Town: Mermen and Testosterone

Somehow my friend Tony (better known as Toe Knee or TOE TOE) and I came up with this brilliant idea: I would tell him to draw something and vice versa and we each had a week to complete it. Then we named the event Box Bean Town.

I was told to draw Poseidon holding a trident fighting off three mermen. At the time, I obviously wasn’t really paying attention to Tony because I ended up drawing four mermen, but at least one of them is wielding a trident. In fact, I just sort of thought I was creating a cooler Triton from The Little Mermaid. I should really write things down next time.

Go see what Tony did. I gave him a really outlandish idea, mwahaha.

I didn’t really bake anything, I just nuked water and glutinous rice flour together. GOOD TIMES. I followed the directions on Kitchen Wench’s site, but I still had to make a few modifications.

So you take a bag of glutinous rice flour, dump out however much you want, and then add water. You want to add enough water so that the mixture is smooth and thick. When you microwave it, the color of the dough will change from white to cream. Take out the dough and stir vigorously so that the dough is nice and elastic. It’s bound to be hot so be careful.

Other than that, this is pretty easy to make. Not easy to make pretty, but easy to make, yes. I suggest you just go to the above site for all your guidance.

I just posted this to prove to people that yes, I still like to create edible things.

Madness

I had a drawing war with my sister and this is how it went down.

First, there was this monkey… and then there was this rabbit. They were nice to each other UNTIL the monkey decided to kick the rabbit. It went downhill from there.

After awhile, only so much could be done in the physical sense, so then we started to attack each other psychologically. Then my parents came home and they tried to draw rabbits and monkeys and our dog Paw Paw.

Then we all drew a duck and a dinosaur each to see the differences. You see the last dinosaur on the bottom of the page? That’s my mom’s drawing and her dinosaur wears a red hat.
