I fucking hate everyone here.

This whole city

can go to hell.

These old money,

trust fund fucks

with their lip injection

fake smiles.

More evil than

Jabba the Hut

with their botox shots,

treating everyone like cunts.

These men with their

power suits,

power lunches,

money is power types.

Guarded

&

protected by

high walls with racists pigs,

which even Mr. Orwell

would’ve been horrified with.

Keep hiding behind

your glass houses.

Cause I see through you,

I see all your cracks.

When the “Big One” hits

I hope it strikes here first,

swallowing this whole place

back down to hell.

If there is any justice left in the world,

it will happen.

If not, I’ll just keep

praying to Satan.

Happy National Almond Buttercrunch Day!!!

3

almondd-butter-crunch

National Almond Buttercrunch Day is observed annually on June 29th.  This unofficial national food holiday celebrates this toffee candy. Buttercrunch is a combination of toffee covered with chocolate. It has a crunchy texture and a caramel flavor. Variations on the recipe include toasted almond sprinkles.

Making buttercrunch calls for a good candy thermometer and some cooking experience. Creating the toffee involves caramelizing sugar at high temperatures, which requires precision, timing and the right tools and safety techniques for a successful outcome. Buttercrunch can be served on top of ice cream or on it’s own. Buttercrunch flavored cookies or cakes are other ways to enjoy the sweet treat.

The beginning of National Buttercrunch day is not well documented. However, a related food holiday, National Almond Butter Crunch Day is celebrated on June 29th. The crunchy candy, sometimes called just buttercrunch but other times referred to as almond buttercrunch, was made famous in World War II. A buttercrunch candy called Almond Roca, made by Brown and Haley was shipped in tins to U.S. troops overseas.

Happy Ceviche & Tapioca Day – How to Make Great Ceviche

2

IMG_8895-Version-2

Tapioca Day is dedicated the starch that is extracted from Manioc, otherwise known as ‘Cassava’. This plant is most commonly known as the source of the translucent beads in Tapioca pudding. But while this is the most commonly known use of this substance, it has cultural significance around the world. It’s origins can be found in Brazil, where the cassava plant is called the mandioca, and it’s extracted starch is called Tapioca.

One little known fact about the Tapioca starch, is that when it’s extracted from the green branched variety of the plant, it is the source of a potent cyanide based poison, and must be processed to remove this before it becomes edible. Once this process is completed it is processed in different ways, which produces the spheres, flakes, or sticks.

Ceviche, also written as cebiche or seviche, has long been a source of pride and even national identity in Peru. The cultural importance of the dish, which at its simplest consists of fresh raw fish marinated in citrus juice (typically lime), prompted the Peruvian government to recognize ceviche as part of Peru’s national heritage.

keithharing_AIDS

Keith Haring was well known as an internationally famed artist as well as a social activist during his 31 years of life. Keith Haring was a talented pop artist who dedicated his career to bringing gay art and AIDS awareness to the masses. While many in the art world criticized the shop’s commercialism, Haring remained committed to sharing his work affordably with a diverse audience. He received a great deal of support from his friend and mentor, fellow pop artist Andy Warhol.

After being diagnosed with AIDS in 1988, Haring established the Keith Haring Foundation to raise money and provide art to AIDS organizations and children’s programs. Haring dedicated his art and the two last years of his life to creating awareness and fostering understanding about AIDS. In 2008, two of his brightly colored sculptures were added to UNAIDS “Art for AIDS” collection. Haring’s brief but intense career was only the beginning of his growth as a gay icon. His colorful, provocative, and socially-conscious images form an important part of the history of gay symbolism.

On his website, Peep My Eats, the chef breaks down the steps to making one at home. Turns out, all you need is four ingredients, one of which is a toothpick. (Other three: A Big Mac. Eggs. Breadcrumbs.)

The Deep-Fried Big Mac topped the crispy, battered creation with extra Mac sauce, naturally.

What are your thoughts, is this too much? Would you eat it?

Here’s a quick video on how to make a deep fried Big Mac:

Happy National Chocolate Pudding Day!!! – Do you remember the first time you ate chocolate pudding?

It’s National Chocolate Pudding Day! Did you know that dessert puddings can be traced all the way back to the 17th century? During that time, a “pudding” was actually a very moist cake (similar to a modern-day bread pudding or plum pudding).

The sweet and creamy confection we know and love today emerged in the mid-19th century when an English chemist named Alfred Bird developed an egg-free custard powder. This remarkable invention made it very easy to produce a delicious pudding with the perfect consistency. Today, pudding is a popular dessert all over the world.

Do you remember the first time you ate chocolate pudding?
