Next up in the Halloween dinner recipe reminiscence is Eye of Newt, crunchy Zombie Fingers, and the sweet Zombie Kidneys — all of which were quite tasty. Funny… writing all this down has reminded me of helping out my little sister many years ago, when she was in grade school. Her class had to each […]

The next elements of the Halloween dinner that we'll review are the poison apple dip, and zombie guts! The guts are startlingly easy — I saw a photo on-line of something that was captioned as "Halloween herb-bread guts." The bread in the original photo is on waxed paper and looks almost more glazed, like a […]

Okay! That's enough scholastic mumblings for a while — time for something lighthearted and fun: last Halloween's dinner! As I've mentioned previously, I occasionally get the urge to cook — either for a specific holiday or for a quiet moment in the midst of scholastic madness, so I feel back in control of myself and […]

As was noted yesterday, Biaggi's essayists examine the emergence of patriarchy in order to persuasively analyze and explain our current global issues — such as environmental devastation, a near-perpetual social injustice which particularly oppresses women and the poor, the increasing corporatization of the massive war and prison industry — then posit a brighter and feasible […]

As we work towards shaping social realities, research on women-centered societies which are based upon cooperation and partnership facilitates a more sophisticated discussion of cultural alternatives. This discussion also ensures that the voices of women of color are respectfully heard and recognized as both researchers of integrity applying a wide variety of methodological approaches to […]

I'm writing this having just gotten back from my little interview session, or whatever it's called, at the photography studio for the boudoir shoot groupon which a dear friend gifted to me. I have to say… I'm starting to feel somewhat uncomfortable about this. A quick note: while I will mention the name of the […]

Happy New Year!! :-D Now that this irritatingly wince-inducing semester of comps is over, I've been very much getting into relaxing. As a consequence I've also had a few interesting experiences and idle thoughts which I thought I'd write down here. For example, I had two weirdly amusing things happen to me the other day. […]

In our last pain-filled episode the armadillo eggs, meatloaf, and cheeses were left well-wrapped and half prepared in the refrigerator, and blinky-Collie-with-glasses went off to a delicious and thoughtful dinner with her very kind housemates. Moving on! The next night I strode fearlessly into the kitchen, well prepared and snapping latex gloves onto my hands […]

Armadillo Eggs – the Agony!

In: Cooking, Craftiness, Random

I like trying new (and simple, please!) things to cook, so I've told my housemates if there's something in particular that interests me, send me the recipe. The first I heard of armadillo eggs was when a housemate excitedly showed me a near-completely graphical — and very simple — recipe for them. An idle google […]

So, wa-aa-ay back in this posting I had discovered the rutabagas, grabbed some, and was heading for the cash register posthaste, due to an incipient on-line appointment. As I stood at the register I watched the clerk either passing things over the bar code reader or (when things like produce had no bar code on […]

Bestiaries depict mythical, moralizing animals, but are also potential allegorical sparks that can bloom into brilliant mental bonfires. My bestiary is this mythologizing animal's fascinated exploration of beauty & meaning in the wonder of existence -- in the hopes of inspiring yet more joyous flares of intellectual passion.

Enjoy!
