Not much to blog about this afternoon.  But I do wonder why the media isn’t picking up on this aspect of Colin Powell’s endorsement?  Nearly everyone I’ve talked to has been waiting for some one to make the same point that Powell did yesterday in what was clearly the most affecting moment of his endorsement.  I’m surprised there’s been practically no discussion of it.

Ironic eBay Item of the Day

with one comment

I swear, I wasn’t looking for funny Sarah Palin gear on eBay just now. In fact, I wasn’t even on eBay at all. This little beaut was sent to my gmail account in a reminder email because the same person who is selling the “Brilliant Bias Cut Gored Chalayan Black Cotton Skirt” that I’ve been watching is also selling this:

"Doggone it, I'm gonna get'cha!"

“Doggone it, I’m gonna get’cha!”

Someone, please buy this “Hunter Moose 60s Mary Maxim Hand Knit Zip Front Sweater” and give it to your most unironic liberal friend. They can pile it full of buttons and wear it around Republicans who will get so angry! It will be so awesome!

And then on Nov. 4 if Obama wins, they can theatrically strip and burn, burn,burn it in the big naked bonfire victory dance party the left wing is planning once they take over America.

Of course, if Obama loses this will be the perfect thing for your friend to throw on the fire at whatever election party they’re attending and lay naked in a ball on the floor, weeping in front of CNN. Waaaaaaaaaah!

It’s not the sweater’s fault. Sometimes a sweater is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.   Generally I’m against violence of all sorts – including sartorial. But if McCain wins the election – I have to admit, I would fuck this sweater up.

Meanies,

What are you going to be going to be for Halloween this year?  I remain uninspired and the big day is coming up.

Thoughts?

Whoa

I presume it’s starting to get a bit chilly in New York.  And that it’s not just the cold chill of recession because it’s nearly Halloween which means it’s nearly Thanksgiving so basically, it’s practically Christmas!  Woo hoo!!! 

I have to admit I miss the fall like whoa.  Something else had me missing New York today.  Actually, not missing so much as missing out – on this:

DEEP FRIED MAC ‘N’ CHEESE 

omg.

omg.

You can order this delicious-ness at Dram Shop Bar in Park Slope, which I’ve never heard of but according to the internet they have shuffleboard and serve tex-mex influenced food to “bearded beer geeks and lugubrious grad-student types.”  Maybe it just tastes a lot like regular mac ‘n’ cheese with lots of breadcrumbs, but doesn’t it sound perfect for one of those cold gray autumn Sundays?.  I would brave a bar full of grad students for cheesy deep fried pasta.  And speaking of devilish macaroni dishes, not so long ago I made this m ‘n’ c variation which I highly recommend. 

Nacho Macaroni and Cheese

2 cups small elbow macaroni
1/2 cup bottled thick and chunky salsa verde (medium heat)
1 cup (packed) fresh cilantro leaves
3 cups (packed) coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese (12 ounces), divided
4 teaspoons all purpose flour
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon (scant) ground cloves
1 cup large corn chips

Preheat oven to 425°F. Cook macaroni in large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, blend salsa and cilantro in processor. Toss 2 cups cheese and flour in medium bowl to coat.

Bring milk, cream, and cloves to simmer in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add cheese mixture. Whisk until sauce is smooth, about 1 minute. Mix in macaroni; season with pepper.

Spread half of macaroni mixture in 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Drop half of salsa mixture over in dollops. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining macaroni mixture and salsa mixture. Sprinkle chips over. Top with 1/2 cup cheese. Bake until heated through, about 10 minutes.

I don’t think I have to explain why this is good stuff.  But now I’m thinking, what if I deep fried it.

hmmmm……..
