Tasty but my preference is still the caramel ones...

I found them too hard. I like the peanut butter ones.

The peanut butter ones are the best. Followed by the almond ones.

 

But tastes have changed. Too many of them are just too sweet. Been sticking to dark chocolate lately.

Soak them in your preferred alcoholic libation for half an hour.

Makes them easier to peel and you can drink the soak solution.

And now off to the vet pharmacy to get Mrs. Hamster some more fisherman's friend cough drops... 

While SWMBO and I were flying home from Europe, we watched a movie called Fisherman's Friends. I highly recommend that movie.

With the recent problems with vape products that have been traced to Vitamin E, I don't think they will be unregulated for very much longer.

I'm reading about more and more jurisdictions where there will soon be stringent restrictions on what products may be sold and to whom.

 

The issue with that is that as far as I'm aware the ones containing the vitamin E acetate were already black market, or at the very least THC-filled, products. They've even recently come out and said that they have not found any nicotine vapes to contain it. But because everyone who doesn't vape associates all vaping as being the exact same thing it's causing problems for everyone. Including people like me who switched to nicotine vapes to get away from cigarettes because they are scientifically safer to all currently available knowledge.

 

But yes, it's becoming a very beekeepery topic lately.

 

Somewhat related, this weekend I will be giving my oldest nephew and my niece their first tastes of crack. The cardboard kind. They've hit that age where they want pokemon cards. They've got their first few cards, and I gave my nephew the remnants of my old collection already, but they don't know how to play and don't have the cards to build proper decks.

 

So I ordered a three pack of starter decks on Amazon, because they're older sets and my FLGS only has the 2 most recent decks that I already bought on Sunday to give them as Christmas presents. And on Sunday we're all going to the FLGS and all 3 of us are going to learn to play. Or rather I'm going to relearn how to play and try to teach them. I'll give them first pick of the decks, making them flip a coin to see who gets absolute first pick, and I'll take the left over. And we'll probably end up buying a few boosters or picking through their bulk singles boxes while we're there.

Second attempt at recreating lost recipes.

 

More filling. More spice. More garlic. Less salt. More cheese. Less crust. Also more spice.

 

Bake 10-15 minutes, pull out to rest. Put cheese over the top. Bake another 5-10 minutes. Filling is already pan-cooked before put into the casserole dish, just baking it in order to bake the crust.

Egg with chili doesn't seem all that horrifying really. Guess it'd look kinda funny but seems like it ought to blend right in without much fuss. Almost sounds like something you'd get at a Waffle House.

I know, right? :lol:

 

She had the same reaction when she saw that Whopper with an Egg that Burger King had a while back.

 

I dunno. ::P:

Our OZ compatriot may not get the reference.

After re-reading - - - - never mind.

Brain is on standby since we got back from Red Robin.

They invited me to have a burger on them because  - Veteran.

While there they gave us a coupon for appetizer or desert for free on next visit, then discounted the bill for drinks and Cathy's Fish and Chips an additional 20%.

Okay.

 

Still not there yet but we're getting closer. Close enough that the both of us polished off an entire 8x8 pan :blush:

 

Fill pan 2/3rds to 3/4 full of filling. Current filling recipe is good. We used half, the other half is in the freezer for next attempt. If anything the filling needs an extra tablespoon of chili powder, can be added next time we attempt.

 

Bake 10-15 minutes. Pull out to rest 3 minutes, just long enough for the crust to fall flat. Add cheese. We discovered the secret to the cheese is to use the really thickly grated stuff to add weight to the crust to keep it flat. Put back into oven for another 20 minutes. With that much weight in cheese the crust cooks veeeeeery slowly but with enough cheese it doesn't burn. When the cheese is starting to get a brown crust the actual crust is finally done.

 

Remake the crust again. Go back to the recipe I used last time but with less salt. Add in an extra splash of milk to make it runnier and easier to pour.

 

Yes I know I'm spending all this effort on remaking a tamale pie. But it was grandma's tamale pie, elf it, and she took it with her. I intend to get it back :ph34r:

seems we are getting some proper Maritimes weather tonight:
 

Quote

Cloudy. Snow beginning this evening then changing to rain before morning. Risk of freezing rain overnight. Fog patches developing before morning. Snowfall amount 5 cm. Wind northwest 20 km/h becoming east 20 late this evening. Low minus 3 with temperature rising to 12 by morning. Wind chill minus 9 overnight.

 

Hopefully all the mess will have melted by morning. 

 

I have my PC in the house now, so not need to fight with the phone keyboard.  

Time to open some boxes and see what is in them.  How I can label 20+ boxes as "Misc" every time I move.....:blink:

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      Super white. Critical threat!
       
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
