APRIL 1!

It's April fool's day, so tell us all about your favorite fool, clown, stooge, or jester!

 

I'll have to say George Carlin.

Audio content! Are there any new podcasts or radio shows you've been listening to that you'd like to recommend to people? 

If not, what's the strangest thing you heard on the radio while traveling?

 

I've been enjoying the Smosh podcasts and Olivia Sui's new podcast Fish Cheeks. They're good and mature people and listening to them talk about stuff is pretty interesting and passes the time well.

Have you painted any of the transparent/translucent bones minis? What worked well?

No, sadly, and I think it'll be many months before I can get my hands on some.

 Ive only painted the oozes that came with the gelatainous cube and an invisible dragon.  Blending magic water resin and the minis went off without a hitch and looked really good.

 

Jury is still out on the invisible dragon.  I am very much considering repainting it  normally.

Have you done any baking recently? What did you make and how did it turn out?

If not, what is your favorite baked food?

 

 

Nope; re, The Kitchen is Cap'n John's Domain.

Going with the first thing to pop into what passes for my mind. I would say lasagna was my favorite bake food.

Though I cook a lot, on account of me cutting out most carbs from my regular diet, I haven't actually baked anything tasty in years.

 

For favourites, home made cookies always rank high. And oven fresh bread is hard to resist. In the past I also made pies and cake from scratch (no pre-made crusts, nor cake mix in a bag).

 

[Sigh]

I miss stuffing my face with the sweet stuff. Fresh fruit doesn't cut it.

We have been baking a lot. I have an adorable helper, so that makes it more fun. We've made blue cakes from scratch, banana bread (that was blue, of course), and Yorkshire puddings so far. They were all amazing, and we will certainly be doing more Yorkshire puddings. Like every day. ::D: I pretty much cooked everything we are before, so this quarantine hasn't changed that much.

I made chocolate chip cookies and southern style biscuits recently. Both came out well. I'm going to try to do some bread this weekend. Also thinking about lasagna... but that'll be a lot of work, and a lot of ingredients I don't already have. Also considering cast iron skillet pizza... 

 

Favorite baked food? 

 

Well if by food, you don't mean things like cookies, then I'm gonna go with baked potatoes. :wub:

Yes, lots of baking recently to fill up the isolated days;

Tuesday: a raised pork pie with onion pastry that is very successful, and extremely filling.

Wednesday; ginger biscuits.

Thursday: A half-pound fruit cake.

Today; Scotch eggs, not really baking but still very tasty.

I would be baking, but flour is still a rarity, and good luck finding any yeast right now. 

 

Been wanting to make pizza bread for ages, but such is really hard to do when the recipe requires yeast...

I've been able to find flour consistently, but it took 3 weeks of looking to find yeast.
