Weiner starts new chain of restaurants

Weiner starts new chain of restaurants

Graphic image is from Greg Gutfeld for NYC Mayor’s Facebook page, via Helen K. The caption is his. He’s been posting Weiner joke pics all day.

That seems appropriate given the state of our news media today. The top story is all Weiner all the time, #Humaliation galore, and the gore of a deadly train crash in Spain. Minor stories include various gay outrages, continued Zimmerman scab-pulling, some Paula Deen tears and jeers, The Justice Department’s decision to go after states voting laws, regardless of Supreme Court decisions, and John McCain’s feelings that a $1 coin (memo to John: we already have one) could lead to increased tips for strippers.

What you won’t see discussed are any of the relevant issues of the day, such as the economy, JOBS, housing, healthcare. You also won’t find any mention in the mainstream media of the various scandals, including the IRS scandal, Benghazi, community organizers in charge of pimping Obamacare, NSA overreach, or the litany of other jacked up shit this government is up to. There is some hysteria over the fate of Obamacare, though.

In other words, it’s squirrel for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I feel like I’m living in Appalachia circa 1932, except I have an Android phone.

So I’m bored, bored beyond belief. I’m working on a new recipe for a gluten free loaf of bread. It’s in the oven now. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Other than that I have a date with a bottle of barley wine shortly. What are you up to?

This is an open thread.

    I think I complained too much about the heat last week. The furnace just came on.

    California wants to take 3% from workers whose employers do not offer retirement for their retirement. Like a state run social security. Knowing the federal government used SS money for general spending you would have to be out of your mind to trust the California state government with your money

    I just saw a story on “Special Report” about Huma. Apparently she was granted some kind of special government employee status that allowed her to work from home @ $135,000, but at the same time was working for an investing company called Teneco or something. They said Bill Clinton is on the board of this company and that she was getting paid several hundred thousand I don’t remember the exact amount but it was about triple her government salary.

    A) That nixes any theory she’s standing by Anthony so he can provide for her and the child…….sounds like she has that covered. So it must be a power hungry thing.

    B) Apparently she had access to basically insider information as a state department employee so there could be some criminal issues. Now I seriously doubt Holder will even blink in her direction, but who knows what the statue of limitations is on something like that.

    • DeniseVB says:

      With that kind of income why does Huma still NEED Ant’ny ? Much less try and convince the N’yawkers, they NEED him too? Ugh.

    LOL! I really wish they’d start cooking our squirrel with a can of mushroom soup because this dry crap they keep serving is starting to stick in my craw!

  18. Update on the gluten free loaf: Best I’ve ever made. This one used a mix of chickpea flour, almond meal, rice flour, and potato starch. But gluten free bread tends to be rather heavy and flavorless compared to wheat bread. So this time I added some fresh chopped rosemary, some lemon zest, and 2 ounces of gruyere cheese. Perfect combination. Very yummy.

    • angienc says:

      In fairness, adding fresh rosemary, lemon zest & gruyere will make shoe leather taste yummy.

    • elliesmom says:

      If you drink barley wine, I assume it’s not you who has given up gluten but another person you cook for. While rosemary, lemon zest, and cheese can make that which is not bread palatable, making baked goods with that which is not flour is expensive and not really satisfying. My BFF has given up gluten, not because she has a medical condition but because she saw it on Good Morning America or some other TV show, and when she asks me to make her that which is not bread, I give her an apple to spread her peanut butter on. My grandmother taught me to bake that which is bread, and I would never desecrate her memory by baking with chickpea flour. lol

      • I’ve not given up gluten, just significantly reduced my intake. I enjoy experimenting with all the different ingredients this world has to offer. Playing in the kitchen is a lot of fun.

        • Lulu says:

          I use chick pea flour for a pizza dough. I like it better than wheat for pizza. My husband likes oat cakes for breakfast instead of biscuits sometimes which are very easy to make on a griddle. I get tired of only using wheat for breads.

        • Interesting tip on the pizza dough. I make mine with cauliflower, which is actually quite good. But again, I know how to amp flavor there, too.

      • By the way, gluten free flours aren’t that expensive if you know where to get them. Most people go to Whole Food or buy direct from places like Bob’s Red Mill, but your local international market will have all the gluten free flours you desire for half the price, if not even cheaper.

  19. I just read “This Town: Two Funerals and a Wedding” by Mark Leibovich which has added to my lethargy about politics. They’re ALL DICKHEADS
