Have a couple of the fraternity boys coming over for dinner because they are in town and we need to talk shop about the upcoming semester, the budget, who is coming back, etc., so I am cooking them a dinner since they never eat right.
Pounded out some chicken cutlets and plan to bread them and deep fry them quickly and then serve them with a chicken gravy with onions, peas, and mushrooms. Not really summer fare, but it is really cool here and I thought they could use a hearty meal. Also, some fresh steamed green beans and a touch of butter, I’ve got potatoes boiling for some mashed, and some sliced tomatoes with some basil and olive oil and salt and pepper.
I’ll see you all tomorrow unless something really pisses me off tonight.
Okay, I’ll check back when Inspector Morse is over at 10:00 PM EST.
Now you’ve just jinxed yourself by guaranteeing that something will piss you off tonight.
I’ll see you all tomorrow unless something really pisses me off tonight.
Ooh. I love a challenge.
@kc: Five posts before midnight. At least.
Can I join the Frat?
Ha! See you in an hour or two. I’m expecting a Little Feat post.
Missing mustard alert in 5..4..3…2…
Sounds heavenly! You can cook for me and my evil spawn anytime. Yum.
Yo, Buckus, I know you’re reading this. Is this not the exact epitome of what we were talking about the other night? (And, yes, it’s a private joke posted in a public forum. Sorry. Ignore this post if it’s not directed to you.)
Steam, then cook in a little olive oil with black mustard seed and sea salt.
I love this bar!
CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!
A trio of things, heading into the weekend.
1) Say it ain’t so. Joe Lieberman floated as possible replacement for Sec. Napolitano.
2) Someone missed taking their meds. “15,000 Russian troops” already in place on order from Obama to throw citizens into FEMA camps when martial law is declared after Zimmerman verdict. ‘Advice’ for those caught in riot areas: Shoot and scoot.Source
3) Palate cleanser. Forty-two gorgeous pictures.
Of course, there is something to be said for a little sesame oil and some chili powder.
After making roasted green beans, will never, never go back to steaming.
All those blushing young damsels and Snowden picked lovely Miss Russia. Now, there is a bastion of freedom and civil liberties. I guess those files he had were worth something afterall. I wonder how much he got? 10 million? 50? less? more?
@efgoldman: How’s the Mrs. doing?
Krugman approves Pacific Rim.
Forecast: partly cloudy, with a 50% chance of brillig.
@NickT: I haven’t tried mustard with green beans, but olive oil makes almost anything better.
Was it ever established whether General Stuck is deceased or not? I hope he is still with us.
@HI: damn!!! I so want to see this this weekend, but money is tight right now, so I’m have to wait. Shoot.
I used to buy enough movie tickets and gift cards for the month, from my former job (they had payroll deduction). My new job “sells” movie tickets too, but they are so lame. You can’t see first run movies. You can only use the tickets at movies that have been out at least 10 days! Plus you can only by 1 ticket (at most 6) at one time. Also they only have Regal/UA theatre tickets (of which there are like maybe 4 close in my NOLA or BRLA area).
Ugh, just ranting, but it’s enough added to the forced religious practices (a prayer every morning at 8, a prayer to open a daily meeting, a prayer to close the same daily meeting). I’m not really religious but I’m not an atheist either, and still the prayer thing really makes me uncomfortable.
Anyway, I’m really bummed about the movie ticket discount program here.

….floated by ABC News, along with half a dozen other CW random Beltway name-generator picks. I actually like the idea of Susan Collins, because getting her out of the Senate could only be a good thing, but 1) crazy LePage might pick a replacement (?) 2) she always strikes me as dumber than Rand Paul’s wig. Still smarter than David Gregory’s natural hair, though.
@SiubhanDuinne: To Serve Frat Boys?
I believe Cole and Keith G are attempting to contact various possible sources of information, but it certainly seems extremely likely that the General is no longer with us.
Anyone else seen the new REDS 2 trailer that is interspersed with clips of Obama talking about national security?
Quick thinking by the promotional team for the film.
Anyway, I already wanted to see the movie. I enjoyed the original film, and I still like Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren as a sexy, hot, mercenary killing machine is all kinds of awesome.
@efgoldman: Everybody likes that casserole except me. I feel it’s obvious that the Lord intended cream-of-whatever soup to be used for casseroles containing tuna, noodles, or both. It is NOT to be applied to vegetables. Thus sayeth the Lord.
@efgoldman: Sorry to hear about Mrs. Goldman; anyone with a sinus infection has my sympathy.
I. Love. This. Girl.
I saw it. Thought it was cute.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist:
Almost put that in my original post, then figured you or someone would save me the trrrrrouble.
But yeah. It’s a cookbook!
I’m going to remember that recipe–sounds delicious.
And sorry to hear about mrs. efgoldman.
I throw them in a saute pan with olive oil, garlic and course or kosher salt–and let them get a little crispy. The garlic gets just a tad bitter–but in a good way. A Spanish friend taught me this trick. Have to use tasty olive oil or it won’t work.
She’s wonderful, isn’t she? I heard excerpts of her UN address on NPR this afternoon and was hoping there would be video.
Shorter Malala: Fuck you, Taliban.
Are they going to hang him posthumously like Oliver Cromwell?
@MomSense: Spanish olive oil, natch. Otherwise just will not be the same.
@SiubhanDuinne: I wonder if there is a way to lobby for the Nobel Peace Prize for her. She is definitely deserving of such an honour.
Hey Ruckus! Are you around? Happy birthday brother Crab!
Just got back. It was fun and funny. Avoid the 3D upcharge, you’re not missing anything. It is worth seeing on the biggest screen possible, I just wish IMAX would do more 2D.
@magurakurin: Russia over Venezuela? WTF?
@Narcissus: He is asking for temporary asylum until he can arrange a move to somewhere in South America.
Another trip around the sun on this rock.
Saying it that way makes me fell about the size of a pimple on a gnat’s ass.
Still not to shabby, I never expected to make it nearly this far.
I’m confused. They never eat right, so you are deep frying something for them for dinner? I suppose it’s an upgrade from Cheetos, and a microwave burrito, but it doesn’t exactly qualify as “eating right”.
Got hammered at the padres/giants game. Fireworks night and fedora giveaway night. Most people shouldn’t wear fedoras.
She must be a horrible threat to the Taliban. The BBC reports that their FB page was flooded with angry comments about her! Unless the UK is fully loaded with trolls I would guess that the Taliban sic’ed their minions on the page in a lame attempt to distract from her powerful and moving speech.
I am reminded of some cold war doggerel from Yip Harburg:
I’m not afraid of anything say Khrushchev, and you know it!
I’m not afraid of anything . . . except, perhaps, a poet.
Truly curious JC – do your chicken cutlets get all mushed looking after you pound them? We made schnitzel last week and the chicken looked horrible after pounding them
