We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Jack Daniel's at Synthstuff. Don't do it - it's perfect for a fine Christmas eggnog. They should consider the poor, who can't afford a bottle of Jack for their eggnog.
Maybe this CNN storyhas legs, after all. Another Rathergate? Media people are scared of Hill and Bill: if you give them a hard time, they will never grant you another interview. Not just collusion - ratings. Still, I suspect CNN could be violating McCain-Feingold. And so will I, if given half a chance to do so on Maggie's Farm. Sue me: I have 200 smart lawyer friends here in Hartford, CT., and we will tie you up in court for a lifetime and cost you a bundle.
Doing what? We are making our venison mincemeat pies tongiht, for Thanksgiving, and for our friends. Aged for four weeks. The smell from the kitchen is amazing. Lucky friends. Ten to give, and two for Thanksgiving here for the beloved relatives. And we are not making pumpkin pies - we are going to make Butternut squash pies from winter squash from the garden. The challenge is to get the moisture out of the cooked squash so it's not to watery and bland.
I bake the buttenut squash, with forkholes to let the steam out, and after cooking it scoop out the seeds and pulp. THis intensifies the flavor and keeps it from getting watery (I do the same thing with our pumpkins, but find the butternut squash is tastier and richer. Also, very few pumpkins ever survive the borers or squash bugs in our organic garden, and the varieties that are resistant are not especially tasty. Whereas butternuts are yummy and resistant...We have a three foot shelf loaded with them, one a week til spring!
