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.”

Saturday Saturnalia Reprise

This post was originally published in August of 2015. Here it is again, with a few new things thrown into the mix.

Motels Monday

Remember the band the Motels? They were big in the 80s.

These three songs got a lot of airplay on the radio and MTV.

They’re still good to listen to.

I love the music that my mind shuffles through when I sleep.

One Sunday Song: 21 January 2018

Three Friday Songs

Time to get the weekend started!

Here are three great songs to commence the Friday festivities.

5 On Friday: Weekend Music

Time for a bit of music on this first Friday of 2018. It’s the best way to get the weekend started on a fun-filled note – or five!

Three Songs for Thursday (Re-blogged)

I’m re-blogging this post from November, to mark this final Thursday of December and the last one of 2017! Enjoy…

Eyrie Of An Aries

For this final Thursday of November 2017, I offer up three songs heard over the past few days. I have to do a bit of laundry, straighten up the kitchen, and get the meals of the day prepped for cooking later on. After that, it will be time for some TeamSpeak-organized dungeon runs! This weekend will be one of the rarer ones involving some heavy gaming. The weather demands staying indoors and Iā€™m caught up with all necessary things, so it is time for some rest, relaxation and recreation.

2017 Is Drawing To A Close

2017 is nearly over; 2018 will be upon us soon.

How were your holidays? Mine have been fantastic. Every year, I celebrate my birthday for a full week starting on 17 March. Each December I celebrate from the Solstice through to New Year’s Day, because 11 years ago I received one of the best gifts ever: the gift of my family.

Now that the end-of-year visits are over it’s back to some heavy gaming! I need to earn a few more things before the latest event is over.

Tuesday Tunes: Depeche Mode

I’ve begun bookmarking selected blogs for reading again, and have followed a few. One author recently did a post mentioning the music of Depeche Mode, and I had almost forgotten how many hits they had. The stations that I listen to on a regular basis don’t play this band very often at all. Here are three songs of theirs which I have always enjoyed; I would love to see the video for the second song updated to reflect current political happenings!
