How Many Millions Makes Golf Expensive?

So the Presidential King of Lies has been exposed again.  Yes, his supporters love when he lies to them so they do not care but I do.  As a taxpayer I care how much Profit-Golf the President plays.  First the number is approximately $102 million with only 2 years of being President down.  Second every time he goes to his “Southern White House” as he likes to call it we get to pay HIM.  So not only has he played more golf than the last several Presidents he makes a profit over and over when he goes to his clubs.

I’m wondering why his supporters are so STUPID!  They chant at his ego-rallies and fuel on his incoherent tirades.  “Lock Them Up”, is the new/old one.  I challenge any of them to name two people other than Mueller.  Who exactly is “them”?

It’s like truth is non-existent any more.  Lie to us we love it.  Unless it’s by a woman or a person of color then they are devils.

William Barr is the President’s Stooge.  He will destroy the rule of law to save the President’s hide.  Mr. Barr is anti-democracy and yeah authoritarianism.  That my friends is not what America was founded on.

 

The reality of the Mueller Report is Mr. Trump did everything to obstruct not only the investigation into Russia tampering with our elections but his involvement with Russia before he ran for President.  He is the biggest LIAR ever to be President in the USA.  That’s saying a lot considering Nixon was President.

If he had nothing to hide there would be no reason to have multiple injunctions for things like his tax returns to his former employees giving testimony by subpoena to Congress.  What don’t you want the morons who follow you to know?  You are an agent of Russia?  You laundered money for the Russian Mob for decades?  Hmm…what could it be?

The truth is Mueller did indict people.  People went to jail…Waving to Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.  So there was 100% credibility into the Mueller investigation.  Unlike the prolonged investigation into Hillary Clinton that produced….Zero.  Not one indictment.  It cost way less than Trumps For Profit Golfing trips but still.

His base worships him.  They say they are people of Christ.  He lies to you and breaks God’s Commandments over and over and over again.  What kind of Fracking Christianity do you follow?

China will never come back to the US and re-engage it’s farming contracts to the level before Tariff Man came to town.  For a guy calling everyone out as Socialists (how dare they want Healthcare), he is all about subsidizing the Farming Community for votes.  Weird right?

I need to end my Diatribe but before I do…Would someone, for the love of God, Drug Test Ben Carson?!?

Oreos?  Really Ben…you are the most stupid doctor I’ve ever seen 😦

Jacques Inspired Meatloaf

So I knew we were having meatloaf for dinner last night.  It’s Sunday and I usually make a crock pot creation but I looked in the freezer and saw the ground beef and thought…meatloaf!

The ketchup on top is a throw back to my Mom who always put Ketchup on for the last 15 minutes of cooking time.  The larger veggies is all Jacques Pepin. He always seemed to make “Rustic” vegetables look so yummy.  So I used his technique and viola…rustic veggies.

I thought all was lost at one point because I was out of panko but I regrouped and crushed the 2/3 cup of saltines.  It worked fine as a binder and added a salt element internally.  Sometimes it’s just the outside that gets the most seasoning so this worked out nicely.

The Wife liked it and that is all that really matters 🙂

Be Kind today!

My Dream

In the next couple of weeks I want to try to make hollandaise sauce.  It might not seem like a big deal to people but it is to me.  I respect butter that much, 🙂

It is also my dream to make the classic Eggs Benedict.  If done correctly, they say the hollandaise is delightful.  I would love to be delighted by my attempt too, LOL.  Some people might find these goals stupid but you know what…they aren’t!

It’s my dream one day to cook like Julia Child and Jacques Pepin.  I never thought of myself as loving french food but after watching these two chefs create the most delectable morsels I too want to try my hand at it.  After I do the hollandaise and Eggs Benedict my lofty goal is to make Beef Bourguignon and I hope it tastes just like Jacques’.

I will post pictures of my creations.  It’s a nice distraction from current politics plaguing my life, LOL.

The FOS Project: Duke’s Edition

We were recently in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and the restaurant Duke’s was recommended by the Hotel Concierge.  It was a very good recommendation!

They had French Onion Soup on the menu so I had to order it!  It was very flavorful.  The Cheese was nicely melted and the broth very beefy.  There were a good deal of onions cooked just al dente.  I like mine a little softer but that is just a matter of taste.

It was a very good FOS and if you are at Duke’s in Harrisburg, PA don’t forget to order it.  It comes in a cup or bowl size!!

 

p.s. A special shout out to our server extraordinaire Greg!  You rocked it Johnny Bravo!

I Don’t Always Complain About Stuff

I was reading some of my recent posts and boy do I complain a lot about politics.  It annoys me so, both the complaining and the politics, lol.

What do I really like in this world.  Well beside the obvious answers of my family I’m really into cooking shows.  It started with Julia Child and moved on to Jacques Pepin.  The man is a genius with food.  When I watch him I feel like I could totally make what he’s making.  Not too many ingredients and it looks so yummy.

He started one episode with “Today we will make a Tar-Tar”.  I was like…yuck…I’m totally not into raw.  Then he pulled out a home run.  Tomato Tar-Tar and it was not only genius but so tasty looking.  I thought I would totally eat that kind of Tar-Tar.  He made me rethink what I once thought about food in general.  He also taught me I’ve been sharpening my knives incorrectly.  He does all this teaching from only 1/2 hour videos.  Amazing!

I love the idea of cooking but I’m such a fussy eater that I ruin it with my lack of palate.  When I see him cooking a Dover Sole in butter I think….that looks amazing and so tasty.  But when I actually eat fish I’m like…um, no thank you.  My deaden palate exposed.  Why? Why? Why?

It’s the same with lobster.  Glistening in butter, so delicate and luscious, and it’s all lost on me.  I did learn from Chef Pepin that 1 lbs of lobster gives you .4 oz of meat.  WOW!  Mind blown officially!

It’s a secret dream to take cooking classes one day.  That will only happen if I expand my palate.  So I need to not be so stuffy and try new foods.

Happy Cooking!

 

And Just Like That It’s Thursday…

It’s been a beautiful couple of days in the neighborhood.  I said to a colleague, “Of course it is beautiful, we are trapped at work”, lol.  Yesterday I was able to enjoy the rest of the evening outdoors.  I had to mow the lawn first as the grass was incredibly high and I lost one of my dogs in the back forty, lol.  Let’s just say the Chihuahua was thrilled she could see beyond the grass.

My plants are coming in nicely.  The cucumbers finally sprouted and next week I will till the plot for my small victory garden.  I’m just hoping it goes better than last year.  I think it will always be a battle for me.  I love to garden but I’m exceptionally bad at it, lol.

I find the sanctuary of our deck and back lawn almost religious in a way.  It’s quiet and the air smells so sweet after the lawn is mowed.  I like to read on the deck.  Grilling is also another wonderful thing I do on the deck.  It is where life makes sense and no one wants something from me.  This is the golden time of year to just relax on it.  It’s not cold and not too hot, just perfection!

My little slice of Eden 🙂
