The next dish from W20 cook book that I tackled for my troupe was the Get of Fenris’ Gravad Lax with Dill and Mustard Sauce!
This might have been the most intimidating recipe I’ll have to do for this project, since it was all about curing fish. Definitely haven’t done that before! So it was a little nervous making…but pretty fun, nonetheless. Sometimes it’s nice to try working with a “set it and forget it” recipe. I was also surprised and happy with how easily it sliced at the end since I’ve never had to do that either. :D
My sauce never quite made it to the consistency of mayonnaise, but I still really enjoyed the taste of it with the fish and the rye bread. I think it was pretty well received by the group too, which was nice because it was pretty far from our usual norm.
And speaking of that, I’d just like to point out how awesome my partner is being about this whole undertaking. A lot of the recipes in the cook book are way out of her comfort zone but, because I’m making them for her game, she’s at least trying all of them anyway. And so far she’s been surprised to like all of them! (The apple pie was the biggest victory.) It’s a really great time. :D
Every few months we let ourselves go back to Paris Baguette for some special treats. Trying out the different pastries and breads is always fun, but the macarons are what I always look forward to most. This time, though, I finally got to try one of their shaved ices (the one near me has recently expanded their flavors). So delicious!
We found some Pocari Sweat on our most recent trip to our local H-Mart, so I got a six pack of it to try! It was pretty pleasant, mostly just like really flat Sprite. It’s better if it’s a cooler temperature too. :D
I think I know some people this would be relevant to…
Detroit’s annual “Theatre Bizarre” Halloween festival
please be courteous this 4th. of July if you have a veteran in your neighborhood
This is something very very important which I’ve never thought about until now
My dad used to have issues with mortar smoke - remember it’s not just the noise that can be a problem.
Finishing out Coming Attractions Week is the Book of Life trailer. I can’t really describe how excited I am for this movie—-and it’s coming out around my birthday! Super looking forward to it. :D
A friend of mine recently got caught up on Night Vale and absolutely fell in love with Tamika Flynn; she also recently had a birthday. So I assembled some things to make a Tamika-themed target practice game for her. :D
1. The game box. Art was made from free-to-use elements over some basic free-handed illustration.
2. The game pieces! Three Strex helicopters, and a Nerf-esque slingshot to shoot them down with.
3. The Strex helicopters. Tiny stickers to add a simple logo I made, because it’s just not Strex if it doesn’t have a logo slapped on it.
I called the game “I Love A Parade” after the awesome Tamika illustration that my friend did. Go check it out!
