Mm mm mm.
The inner Piglet (Winnie of the Pooh related) in me exclaimed, this time in delight not dismay..
“Oh d-d-dear..what simply d-d-d-delightful and adorably d-d-darling Disney D-d-ditties”
The following sampling of mash-ups are from POGO.
In the song “I’m Afraid of Americans” there is a certain refrain. It’s an upbeat suggestion of “God being an American.” (You’ll find the classic hit at the bottom of this page, alongside the fun project video I made to it)
Some days (not all, please mind you), nothing could seem closer to the truth.
When times are the very worst..a kicked back, corn chip inhaling slacker of an American god is what I can imagine-shooting and running countless video game characters to their individual destruction with adolescent glee.
SOME days, folks. Lol. Just some.
I’m happily ignoring the end of our presidential pep assembly of fools.
I’d rather present a reminder of a
15th anniversary (Nov 5th 2001)
The Murder of Mr. Bill Cooper.
Thank you and Bless you..wherever you are
Banana bread recipe
Add a cup or so of chocolate chips for aforementioned chocolate chip 🍌 bread.
Following, is an article on the now worthless Food Pyramid replaced by a color coded My Plate-since we grown folk supposedly got too confused learning how to feed ourselves.
Autumn deserves her praise. With her breathtaking reds and stunning oranges. Exquisite honey goldens and even the ashy browns. Heaven only knows how many poets have been inspired by Autumn doing her thing with the leaves.
But..Autumn will never have the honor of making somebody smile over the thought of finding her leaves to munch on from the top of his or her cake, that’s for sure.
You, on the other hand, can have the honor-color combos galore.
All you’ll need are
candy melting wafers and a silicone leaf mold.
Damn you for making me pause way too many times today and consider replaying FF2 or FF7 in their entirety; when it’s pretty well known that it took me way too many years to triumph over both..each.
Damn you for bringing a smile to my face as my heart floods with video gaming memories through the years with my boys and children I had the honor of meeting.
And finally, you sassy bit o’ music, if there was a most “damnable” aspect,
The following videos are highly impressive symphonic treatments of video game music.
Now that I am long safe from the hazards of the dance floor (and it from I), it’s still a joy to enjoy this album-The Sign by Ace of Base 1993
What a treat to see all four still working, still beautiful.
I’m sure the pumpkin shaped sugar cookie can sit out this Halloween.
Surely, letting another pumpkin shaped something or another share in the holiday spotlight couldn’t hurt. If I am forgiven for the severely casual way I present this particular candidate of an idea….
The more general things needed=
A box of any brand white cake mix
A standard set of food dyes
Green candy chips for melting
A can of white frosting
The not so general things=
A silicone leaf mold meant for melted candies
A mini bundt cake pan.
One looks like this
The other, like so
Before you bake your cakes, it would be best to prepare your candy leaves. Melt the candy according to package instructions and pour into the leaf cavities of your choice. You should have a handful of leaves by the time the cakes have been cooled and glazed.
After mixing your white cake batter, put in enough drops of red and yellow to achieve the color of orange that you want. Pour your batter into the mini bundt pan. Bake according to package instructions. I add five minutes to the cupcake version. Remember, you can always administer the Toothpick Test when in doubt.
After baking and cooling, level the cakes by slicing the tops (eventual bottoms when inverted to be decorated as pumpkins). Save them for creative baking projects like cake pops which require plenty of crumbled cake portions. A super cake pop decorating site can be found by pressing Here.
Heat up a portion of your frosting in a microwaveable bowl or cup gradually. Heat it 10 seconds at a time if need be. Heat it until it’s of a consistency suitable for pouring as a glaze. Do not bring to a boil. Pour in enough drops of green dye to match the green candy leaves. Let it cool down a bit, but don’t allow it to solidify.
Pour the glaze over the tops of your cakes, to drip along the grooves of cakes -the “vines” of the candy leaf you end up placing on top. The leaf should be set in a pool of glaze settled within the center of each cake.
