I made eggs explosion last night, oh it was so good!
Dsd had the grilled cheese round (she'd already eaten) and asked if I could make the sandwich this morning. I did and she devoured it, faster than I've seen her eat in a while. I ate the grilled cheese round. It's a keeper!

Oh, that's great, missbanjo.
I missed the troll. Was it the same person who told everyone to grow up in curlypearl's thread?

Hiding a dog in a neighbor's yard? They must've been the kids who always got found first in Hide 'n' seek.
no, she's hiding the dog in her apartment, but leaving the evidence all over my front yard. Last year she had a large boxer she trained to go in my yard. I caught her taking a puppy to my yard to use the bathroom a little while back. She claimed it was a friend's dog that was visiting, the current state of my yard says otherwise.

They nearly got evicted last year for being overall bad dog owners, so I'd say you're second statement is correct.
I just meant that they're not doing a very good job of trying to "hide" a dog if they're letting it get into someone else's yard.

Ha, it's like I could have written this:
Quote:
I never buy bananas for eating. Quite logically, since I don’t like them. But what I do like, is anything banana flavoured, exept bananas. Weird, I know. Banana bread, banana ice cream, banana fudge, banana milkshake, banana cake – you get the picture. It just transforms into something way better. So I never end up with overripe bananas by accident, “forcing” me to make banana cake, because I don’t buy them in the first place. Which is kind of sad, because I love banana cake, and you’re excused to make it when your bananas turn black
Although, I don't have a huge love for banana bread. But I do quite enjoy a fine-crumbed banana cake, especially when sour cream is involved or it's marbled with chocolate.

It's a rainy Monday.

The dogs are sleepy.
-------
My smelly area rug is getting rained on, which will hopefully help with the stinkiness.
----------
My wife-beating neighbor aimed the former resident's garoyle at my house. Little does he know that I like monsters, and that I was friends with the former owner, and finally that it reminds me of going to church at Notre Dame in Paris every week, so it's kind of an amusement.
-----------
I got a soft-purple hair extension yesterday. I have to trim it and curl it, but I'm nervous about scalding it. The hair is far finer than mine, and I think I have to treat it more carefully than my own mop of waves and general cowlicks. I hate to waste the extra, too, but I don't know how to sew it together so it can be re-used.

Ulta gave me samples. I love samples.

A coworker is retiring today. I feel jealous and petty and I just want to cry.

If you think you might prefer them less sour (they have a nice tang), reduce the vinegar by half and replace the quantity with water.
Stretch and fold is a technique used for wet doughs in which you stretch the dough out, fold in thirds like a letter, then stretch your newly made rectangle again and fold in thirds.

Here are cornmeal English muffins from him, which I will probably make next week, though people do feel it's better to use less water:
Cornmeal English muffins recipe | Dan Lepard | How to bake | Life and style | The Guardian
CORNMEAL ENGLISH MUFFINS | Bewitching Kitchen

These are great, though I use poolish in place of the sourdough (so, for 110 g of 100% hydration starter, mix 55 g of water and 55 g of flour with a pinch of instant yeast and leave out overnight):
http://www.wildyeastblog.com/2007/09...glish-muffins/
Tangy English Muffins | Wild Yeast

For a simpler, shorter process (though Lepard's are really easy and you don't have to do much, they just take longer), you can try Peter Reinhart's:
English Muffins | Brown Eyed Baker
They're very good muffins, but I do prefer the others for having more of an English muffin crumb. Reinhart's are slightly more bready (as in, the crumb is a little too much like white sandwich bread than English muffins compared to the others which really nail the crumb).

If you live in one place for at least 10 years, you really can't claim you're a traveller. And if you are a real traveller being moved shouldn't bother you because you are a traveller. What you're really doing is squatting. You can't just build where ever you want without permission and not face the consequences.

If you're going to live in one place for so long pay council tax. Pay for your utility's. Oh wait, those bills only apply to non-travellers.

You're welcome, ruralcurls.

I suppose the correct term would be Irish Traveller. I feel bad for feeling the way I do about the situation.
