  1. Brain Weasels

    But brain weasels make the brain sick and sad, so perhaps pink and purple would be too cheerful.

    Prethanksgiving went well. Not as many attended as I had hoped (stress and schedule trouble). Did a broth fondue with beef and shrimp and veggies. I made a garlic herb butter. And more cookies. Friends brought spaghetti squash, meatloaf, and mac n cheese. There was good wine (2013 cab franc from a fav vineyard oooooh geez so good). Good company. Huzzah!

    Adding you to the list!
  4. You are confusing wisdom and dexterity scores.
  5. Pretty sure there were a few old agejabs going around in CO. I just sit there and absorb wisdom.

    Nightshade purple. It is nearly black, but the purple makes it softer, and more interesting.
  7. Maybe I should put the recipe on Good Eats. These cookies are delightful.
  8. @Dr.Bedlam, your magnifying visor is safe with @Doug Sundseth. You left it at the game shop. Was good meeting you! I shall make more cookies next time!
  9. Goblin

    Nice little goblin there! I would suggest putting it in the Show Off section however, as it is a finished piece.

    There are foods that are good without spice, no doubt about it. But a small amount of black pepper is more "flavor" than "spice" to me, unless you drench something in it. I may also just really like that sort of sensation, considering my apple pies make my tongue go numb due to being heavy handed with the cloves and cinnamon.

    I am not that into hot sauces, but I like cooking with chili peppers. And salsa is yummy. I can have pretty darned hot, as long as I can alternate bites with a quencher. My stovetop popcorn I make with jalapeno flavored olive oil - it ends up with a very nice but mellow heat. Takes a handful to peak spice, but it stays at "warm" well. Mmmm spicy popcorn. My grandmother on the other hand can't have a flake of black pepper. Jack in the Box chicken tenders are too spicy for her. At one point I made a mellow veggie soup (pureed summer squash, carrots, and corn). I'd forgotten I'd shaken in some black pepper and gave it to her... it was too much. Black pepper is an ingredient in almost all food for me, right up there with onions on commonly used things.
