Tuesday Tidbits: Cooking & Comedy

Author’s Note: This post was originally published in March of last year. I updated it slightly.

It’s a nice, relaxing Tuesday. Snow is falling outdoors while the delicious aroma of home-made beef stew wafts through the house. Cooking is such an enjoyable thing to do, especially with fresh ingredients! I figured that I’d show a few of the vegetables which I like to use in stews, much like my previous post about the things I toss in with my chicken soup.

Onions, shallots, and garlic make up the base of most dishes. I don’t think that any dinner is complete unless it has at least one of those flavourful bulbs included! Carrots may or may not be used, since the variety of root vegetables used more than makes up for their omission. These herbs and vegetables round out the meal:

Thyme

Rosemary

Oregano

Parsnip

Turnip

Rutabaga

Red potatoes

I love using fresh herbs of many different types…the picture below shows a few of my go-tos.

Since I’m amusing myself with some choice comedy bits, I thought that I’d share them with you. A good laugh does a body good, and these clips had me in a fit of giggles!

Shining the Blacklight on American Democracy

Drumpf’s Agenda: Today, America…Tomorrow, the World!

Conan O’Brien talks about the United Airlines dress code

Conan O’Brien hits Comic-Con(R) Mad Max-Style (2015)

Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a few short clips about bots and the role they play in various online scams. Behind every bot, troll, sock-puppet and cat-phishing attempt / attack is someone looking to give you the old “Rick-Roll.”
