Apa lo gees, had to go MIA today (and tomorrow) due to work commitments.....Seeing a chum to tonight for a scoop sir, I too shall hoist a beaker!
My journal: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread60211.html Into RPG table top games? Check out FateStorm and (in development) Vanguard! 3D printed miniatures for sci-fi RPGs.
Was watching The Cooking Channel today as it was raining and not fit for outdoor activity... and I watched one of my fave shows... not anything the least bit primal, and I don't really try to figure out how to "convert" the recipes, I just enjoy good food... though, I must admit some of the terminology is different than I am used to. Today's epidose was a sausage and lentils dish, which was followed by a bread pudding. Being the carnivore that I am, the sausages looked very appealing, and I do like lentils. I like many legumes, they just don't like me back.... in my case they truly are the musical fruit...
I was intrugued by the bread pudding as well... It was here that some of the ingredients were "different". "Brown bread" in my mind is pumpernikle or the like, though it looked like a regular whole wheat bread... the "Double cream" must be something akin to a heavy whipping cream.... Like I said, I found it interesting...
Am almost through "The Tudors". Have gotten to Elisabeth 1, which was the reason I bought the book in the first place.. Very interesting period in history... Sometimes I do find it difficult to read history without reading it through the bias of modern sensibilities, and passing moral judgement on the subject of the history..... Viewing the past through the lens of today's sense of freedom and liberty can skew your opinion a good deal..... What we consider "normal" today could very well have cost your life 300 years ago. It makes me wonder what people 300 years in the future will think about us.... Medicaly speaking, technology will have advanced to such a state that what we consider life saving today will be considered barbaric butchery in the future.... Ethics will have evolved as well. What is shocking to us today will probably be unnoticed in the future.
