Cheesy Potato Bread Rolls Recipe

The Heathen Homesteader

I love potatoes. When people say “bread is life” I think: “right after potatoes.” When combining the two I feel as if I am creating pure joy. In this blog post I’m sharing one of my versions of potato bread but I’m making it into rolls then adding a bit of cheese to the mix. Because cheese too is life. Unless you’re lactose intolerant and also gluten intolerant. Then maybe not.

I was very surprised I had not posted a blog about potato bread yet as I make it fairly often. Growing up one of my favorite sandwich breads from the regular grocery store was (is) potato. Homemade potato bread isn’t quite the same unless perhaps you are using potato flakes (instant mashed potatoes) or spend time breaking down potatoes into a thin liquidy purée. Even then the texture is different. I like my potato bread with some small clumps…

How Insufficient Sleep Can Harm Your Child

1

Image result for maggie simpson crying

Sleep plays an extremely important role in our health, yet it seems to be one of the first things we forego when we’re short on time. For children, this habit can prove to be harmful later in life. A new study by the pediatricians at Massachusetts General Hospital shows that insufficient sleep in early childhood can lead to cognitive and behavioral problems in later years.

The study monitored the sleep habits of 1,046 children and their consequent behaviors. The families of these children were interviewed when the children were ages 6 months, 3 years and 7 years old, and completed questionnaires at ages 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 years old. The mothers were also sent survey instruments to evaluate each child’s executive function and behavioral issues, including emotional responses and social problems.

The findings support the importance of encouraging your children to get a good and sufficient night’s sleep…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – A forgettable experience

Treeman and the Gang

The first teaser trailer for the new Star Wars trailer is out and the Internet went totally wild about it. People coming up with praise for the trailer and enourmous speculation about what Skywalkers “it is time for the Jedi…to end” all means. Plenty of theories has already been written and talked about though most sensible people will probably recognize that he means that it is time for the old Jedi Order to end. So let’s just trash the whole “Skywalker is evil” or “Skywalker is Snoke, so he dresses up like an overgrown zombie-alien when he communicates with the First Order in front of a holo-camera.”
Let’s get it out: Yes, the new teaser trailer was pretty good because it sparked interest but it was also incredible forgettable. I had totally forgot it the day after its release because it shows us nothing execpt what we already would expect…

TRAILER

Fast & Furious franchise has minted money for anyone who has been associated with it for the last 17 years and truly it has been a roller coaster ride. With the unfortunate death of Paul Walker, it seemed like the franchise was in dwindles but introduction of Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock actually saved the day. Coming over now, with the eighth installment of the franchise, it seems to be closer to calling it a day. I originally gave it a 2 star but then the action was pretty good so it earned another one star for itself.

Thefateofthefurious_moviereview_truereviewsnow_3

The story, as we have already seen and now pretty much know through other reviews and spoilers online, is about “Family”. Seriously, Vin Diesel has overused this word so much…

Fu’s Politically Incorrect Review – Jurassic World (Spoiler Alert: Everyone Dies!!!)

6

image

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the massive creature escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it’s up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.

First off, it never gets old seeing dinosaurs on the silver screen. It’s just brings me back when I was 12 years old but just like the first film I wanted every single dinosaur to kill everyone on the island. Because let’s face we’ve been on top the evolution chain for a relatively long time and we still don’t act any better than the animals we eat or control. Just like a high school party that you got invited to by one of your friends, someone people are cool and the rest of the people at the party are fucking assholes that need to be eaten by a T-Rex.

That’s what happens at this party. People are having a good time then someone had to make a genetically modified organisms into a dinosaur. Yes, those three evil letters (GMO), you’ve been taught to stay away from in the supermarkets. Basically, this Indominus Rex aka asshole, decided to ruin the party. Apparently, the mad scientists decided to create a killing machine that not only kills for food but also kills for fun, so she’s a giant bitch.

But I would be pissed off as well, if I was captive in isolation for most my life. Plus, if my diet consisted of a whole cow everyday, I would be agitated as well craving for some greens or at least a better menu selection. So, like all smart and highly dangerous animals, especially the ones who’s been spliced by the baddest predators, you would think it would be guarded by a team of former military types, which it isn’t of course. It’s guarded by one fat security dude eating a four course meal while on duty. So, naturally it easily out wits Paul Blart the mall cop and runs amok on the park killing humans (Yay!), but also killing dinosaurs (Boo!)

In that sad scene when the GMO dinosaur injures the Brontosaurus, leaving it to slowly die with Star Lord and Bryce Dallas Howard, I’ve never wanted anybody to die as badly as I did to see the Brontosaurs making one last attempt to eat off Bryce Dallas’s ridiculous BOB haircut. But I understand it is a herbivore and it has better taste. Bryce finally realized after numerous people had died along with dinosaurs and her own nephews’ lives were at risk that maybe we shouldn’t have created this killing machine and maybe we should stop it.

But just like how you have a feeling that you’ve stayed too long at party when you know it’s already over, the Indominus Rex has stopped the park’s security forces feeble attempt to stop it, causing havoc at the park which eventually takes control of the park. In one last pathic attempt, the humans decide to use Raptors that Chris Pratt has trained in order to hunt another killer dinosaur, but of course it back fires because the genetically modified dinosaur is fluent in English, Spanish, Rapanese and Real Talk.

And Real Talk. The modified dinosaur told the other Raptors, “Yo, fuck these humans.” The human’s plan backfires again as the Raptors start hunting and killing the humans. But finally, someone decides to throw out Indominus Rex out of the party because she was getting way too fucked up. But the humans don’t come to the rescue as the dinosaurs do come out to help the humans. Which brings me to my point again that animals are better than humans. This movie was really enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

One final note, if they decided to keep making modified dinosaurs, I think it would be a lot like the 90’s tv show Dinosaurs, which follows the life of a family of dinosaurs, living in a modern world. They have TVs, fridges, etc. The only humans around are cavemen, who are viewed as pets and wild animals.

Fu’s Observations:

– I know I shitted on Paul Blart but I’ve watched both movies. Highly enjoyable.
– Did Bryce Dallas Howard have that haircut to make her be hated more because it worked.
– So, glad that the black guy didn’t die in which I still think Samuel Jackson is still alive. (We just saw a black severed arm, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it was his arm, you racists.)
– How come that snooty evil Asian scientist didn’t die?
– Can you genetically modify a racists dinosaur?
– Are there gay or bisexual dinosaurs? That new dinosaur had to be transgendered. I would believe the LGBT community would get behind it.
– Those kids parents definitely still divorced. One of those Pterodactyls definitely left the island and now is a legal immigrant in Texas, working as an insurance agent.
– You have no idea where Costa Rica is on a map. You just know its down there somewhere.

Guardians of the Galaxy Review – Theater Fire, Jokes, Crying & Vin Diesel’s Finest Performance

xl-gotg-cast-6cu-600x550

Written By Ryan Fu @fu_beatz

This film expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

I saw it the other day before I went to work, which I was quite excited to see it because I heard a lot of great reviews about the film. Even a theater fire couldn’t stop me from watching the movie, well kinda. In a packed theater in the morning, we were all just 30 minutes into the movie, which I might add was quite enjoyable, then fire alarm went off! I was so into the movie because it didn’t take itself seriously like other Marvel films do, which I think Ironman is so relatable and likable to many people as opposed to other Marvel films because in the end of the day it’s just a movie about a comic book character. (I just lost a few comic book nerds with that line but I digress.)

The fire alarm went off, the lights went flashing on and a voice came on the PA telling us to evacuate the building but we were all like “fuck that!” We were all having a blast watching the movie that we weren’t going to leave until we all saw smoke. But 15 mins later, sitting still watching the movie with the flashing fire alarms and PA system telling us we were in danger, the manager turned off the screen and physically told is to leave the theater because of the fire alarm. Adults and children inside of the movie theater made a collective “ahhhh” because we were all having fun. We stood outside the theater for like 10 mins until we were told to go back in and they re-started the film to where they stopped it and our adventure continued.

Chris Pratt was a perfect leading man in this film because he isn’t your typical leading man, I mean he is good looking with muscles but he has the everyman quality in which everyone likes to be around. Plus, he’s funny as shit, which was why I thought he was one of the best part of the movie and I’m super happy that he’s starting to get recognize as a viable leading man in Hollywood because he deserves it. I’ve met him a couple times while working and he was always respectful and cool. Anyways, long story short, he deserves an Oscar for this performance just kidding I think Vin Diesel should get that or at least a nomination for his voice as Groot.

 Vin-Diesel-as-Groot-in-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy

Don’t get me wrong everyone in the movie played a terrific part in the movie with Chris Pratt such as Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Dave Batista and Karen Gillan. Zoe essentially played her part again in Avatar but it worked for her and Karen Gillan played a sexy villan. Dave Batista played a wonderful bruiser and Lee Pace, the antagonist playing Ronan the Accuser, just plays guys who want “Power” but then gets crushed in the end in such a convincing manner. I also like Bradley Cooper as the voice of hot-tempered Rocket, which he is the only one to translate for his BFF Groot, which was played by Vin Diesel. Vin Diesel had only three words he had to say the movie, which was, “I am Groot.”

But it was enough because he was the best character in the movie and at one point I got so emotional because his character so lovable, I didn’t want to see him die. But I know you guys want to read that I cried but I didn’t damn it! I’m a man watching a Marvel Comic film and dudes don’t do that. But that’s beside the point, which I’m trying to make. Even if you’re not a big comic/ sci-fi fan, you should still go watch Guardians of the Galaxy because you’re going to have a good time. Also, you might cry, which is alright because, “We are all Groot.” 😉

Fu’s Observations

  • Chris Pratt was ripped in the movie which made me want to go to the gym
  • Karen Gillan was a sexy cyborg
  • Fine! I teared up a litte bit, there!
  • If only Vin Diesel had just three words in all his movies 😦
  • We were all seriously going to to watch the film with the alarms going off
  • The 80’s music made the movie a lot cooler, especially coming from an 80s baby
  • Mixed tapes well never ever be un-cool. Having a mix song list on your iTunes is LAME.
  • I really hope they’re going to re-make Howard the Duck because it was one of my favorite childhood movies.

Living Life to the Fullest-Top Five Paul Walker Films

GONZO’S Corner-  Written by Ryan Fu @fu_beatz & Doc G

Ryan Fu

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”

This is a quote from Mark Twain, who asks the question, “Are you ready to die.” Early this Saturday, we lost someone gifted and special, Paul Walker. Ironically, Mr. Walker, 40, was killed in a car crash in Southern California. As a paparazzi, I’ve papped him only a couple of times, but he was always courteous and respectful. On screen he was bigger than life, but off screen was just like one of the guys. Unlike many other celebrities who act like they are above from everything and everyone, Mr. Walker was as down to Earth as a movie star can possibly be and he didn’t have to be. This was Paul’s way, thus this is why women loved him and men wanted to be like him. Paul Walker lived the way he wanted to live and maybe it was too fast and too furious but if you’re not living on the edge, then you’re taking up too much room. Which brings me back to the question? If today was your last day, would you be proud of your life? If not, it’s time to get in fucking car and get in the fast line. Here is my Top Five Paul Walker’s films:

 Number 5

Varsity Blues (Lance Harbor)

Varsity_Blues_20787_Medium

This movie put Paul Walker on the map. You believed and felt sad about a young man’s plight, who got pushed aside after he got injured, to see the dude from Dawson’s Creek take your job. Also, Jon Voight as a racist and abusive coach is worth a watch.

Number 4 

The Skulls (Caleb Mandrake)

The_Skulls_49271_Medium

Paul Walker shirtless and a secret society.   I’m in.    Also, another dude from Dawson’s Creek trying to steal the thunder of Walker.

Number 3

Into the Blue  (Jared)

Paul_Walker_in_Into_the_Blue_Wallpaper

Paul Walker shirtless again, yes please! Plot of movie, please refer to the picture above. Also, bitter beer-face Jessica Alba is in a swimsuit the whole movie, not bad.

Number 2 

Eight Below (Jerry Shepard)

Eight_Below1

Huskies and Paul Walker? Too Cute! Not a bad movie was well.

Number 1

The Fast and the Furious ( Brain O’Conner)

fast-and-furious-2001-14-g

If Varisty Blues put Walker on the map, then this movie put him in outer space.  On paper and even in the trailor it could have been another corny racing movie, but it wasn’t it. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel’s chemistry was dynamic and charismatic. Showing his acting range in the movie, Walker played the part beautifully as Brian O’Conner, an undercover FBI agent who has to deal with choices of what is right and wrong and what’s more important to you.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

 When people ask why I don’t believe in God I usually like to show them all the evil this world has produced or the things that are wrong and totally fucked up in this world. Things like the holocaust, genocide in Africa, and children born with disabilities, if there is a God none of these things should exist. I don’t care if God is testing you, or that you are being punished by karma for things you did in a past life. Children born retarded have no clue what they did wrong, they just are.
I will now do a triple backflip of a transition and say god doesn’t exist cause he fucking let Paul Walker die and somehow managed to spare Vin Diesel, I kid because the proof that God doesn’t exist is the fact that Vin Diesel is a movie star in the first place.
Paul Walker was, from all accounts a good guy. He always was smiling, giving, the few times our paths crossed he was cool. He didn’t have the talent of some actors, nor the resume of others, but he had a good career and died during a charity event. If there truly was a god, do we think he would take Paul during a freaking charity event for the Philippine disaster, which in itself is evidence of an atheist world. The funny part is people trying to show their intelligence and use the word ironic to describe his death, but no one understands the true definition of irony. They all are using the Alanis Morissette version of ironic and thus isn’t it ironic Paul died in car crash, don’t you think? True irony would be if he was walking down the street and was killed by being run over by speeding cars, that’s ironic, don’t you think?
Paul’s best movies, not roles.
5. RUNNING SCARED
The fucked up thing about this movie is that anytime I see that it is on television I have to check to make sure it isn’t the dreadful Running Scared from the 80’s starring the dynamic duo of Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines. Nothing like a dancer and comic teaming up for crime movie in Chicago. Sadly most times I see this title it is the Billy and Greg movie not vastly superior Paul Walker film. What’s ironic is that more people will buy or start to watch Running Scared this week then ever saw it before and they will be greeted by Billy Crystal’s face.
4. FLAGS OF OUR FATHER
When Clint Eastwood calls you answer, unless he is asking to speak at your political convention and has a great idea about using a chair. Paul made this film before Clint spoke to an empty chair, when Clint still had his mind firing on all cylinders. A brutal story about the capture of Iwo Jima, it is Paul’s only war movie. Another reason God doesn’t exist, someone let Vin Diesel star in a Steven Spielberg war movie.
3. TAKERS
I love a good robbery movie and it is a testament to how enjoyable this film must have been that even with the human shit of a man Chris Brown and the acting vacuum that is Hayden Christiensen starring this film cracks the top 5. Evidence 322 that God does not exist, Chris Brown’s career. If there was a God do we really think he’d let a woman beater scumbag like Chris have millions of dollars?
2. VARSITY BLUES
Friday Night Lights before the movie and tv show, with a chick wearing only a whip cream bikini, wait what was I talking about? Right Paul Walker, he was in this? Truthfully I only remember Dawson, Jon Voight, and the bikini girl, who won the last game in this movie?
1. FAST AND FURIOUS 6
Seriously the 6th one is the shit. The Rock, Paul Walker and even some guy named Vin Diesel.

R.I.P Paul Walker (1973- 2013)
