Time for another scary movie quiz. Brought to you by the makers of our spooky movie room, the season of Halloween and me, your host.
What movies are these eyeballs and noses from? Here's a clue, one movie has Spock in it (not as Spock), and the other doesn't.
Winners receive two exquisite rotted carcass bookends, three chunks of stinky cheese and two teeny tiny pieces of lint. Swap outs for our veghead friends are available on a first come, first serve basis. Sorry, no rain checks.
I gotta tell ya, I don't know what was more fun. Playing with Holly's recipes, taking the photos, eating the bakes, or showing
everything to Frankenberry when he got home from his gaming con.
It was such a blast that I'm buying 4 digital copies of Holly's dessert book and giving them to Martha, Suzie, Wendy, and Jen. Surprise, girls. Hope you have as much fun as I did.
But wait, that's not all. Holly will give a FREE digital copy ofABC's of Desserts, to one Boogerbutt from this post. To learn more about Holly, click the Foodie images on my side bar. You can join her Foodie Blog Hop, buy her books, or just say howdy.
But first, check out all the stuff I made from her book, from my bakes gone wild weekend. Our favorites were the lemon treats. We both love lemon and I love baking with citrus. Such a great taste. It's a win, win.
Before I wrap up today's Baker's Report, please pull up a chair. We have coffee, tea and water, plenty of plates and lots to eat today. Enjoy!
PS: There's some sort of wonky distortion going on with photo number one and being that it's 15 minutes to 4AM, I don't have time to fix it. So here's both.
You're about to battle a monster. Choices are The Mummy, The Monster, a vampire or a ghost. I'm thinking of going the easy route and unraveling The Mummy. Although I could use a big blowtorch on the Monster of Frankenstein, but that would be hard to do because he's my favorite.
I don't think I'd win against a vampire, unless garlic really works or I could trick him into the light. And a ghost? No idea how to fight that one? Not a clue.
In the spirit of Halloween, which monster do you fight?
No one got last Friday's Question, except Tim, who teased me that he would tell. But then I told him I would vacuum up all his dice, thus winning that battle.
Trust me ladies, go for the dice. Always go for the dice.
Anyway, here's the tie-in to last Friday's Question. What monsters, said these lines? Answer correctly and you get one fungus filled toenail and eight dingleberries. I won't tell you who supplied the dingleberries but I will tell you he's got a huge dice collection.
Now onto the game.
#1) "That's right dear. It's your great big green lump of sweetness."
#2) "Pardon my appearance but I've been fixing supper. We're having curried lizard casserole and you know what a mess that can be."
"You're forced to eat lizard?"
"Well, it was either that or pickled frogs ears and my husband insisted on lizard."
Today was supposed to be restful and it was but in a much different way than I had planned. Not only is Thanksgiving dinner about ready, but I got to take many many pictures of produce outside today. What a great day. Perfect light.
I love Autumn.
Meanwhile, using homemade chicken stock to make dough is a go. I repeat. Chicken stock to make dough, is a go. I'd show you pictures but I took like a billion more today and they need cropped. That, and sometimes it's good for me to crop and edit the next day. Gives me some distance.
Anyway, my Boogie-Butts - that concludes my afternoon post. Time for me to make a cuppa and take a proper break, before Frankenberry gets home. Thanks for reading and have a fright-tastic day, evening and night.
Tonight is supposed to be Thanksgiving dinner but I just couldn't get it all done in time and come out still standing. But that's only because I was out couponing. No freebies but lots of produce for good prices.
I'm happy with that.
Now dig this. Below is a ball of dough that I made today for stuffing bread, no horrid little store-bought cubes for us, thanks. Anyway, this morning I used homemade chicken stock to make the dough (along with herbs).
Now I've made herb stuffing bread before but never used chicken stock instead of water, to make dough. I'm super excited to see how today's lab, bakes.
Oh, and I almost forgot, I got a buttload of local apples for super cheap. Oh my gosh, the bakes. My brain nearly can't stand the excitement. It's too much I say, too much.
PS: It's about to turn 4:14 - now that's cool.
Oiled ball of stuffing dough, just after being made.
It's no secret, I love monsters. Preferably cartoon but also in classic, as in Boris playing The Monster and Mummy, or Bela as Drac. But there's also Fred as Mister Munster, and I love De Carlo as Lily. Hands down, she's the best chick monster in the history of ever. Or, at least in my eyes.
So ghouls and gals, what's your favorite monster(s)?
It's been a killer good day so far. No labs, which was a nice break for me. I've been chatting on email, doing chores, and clippin' coupons. Even got dinner ready for later. Homemade Chicken Meatballs with Tomato Sauce & Stale Breadsticks.
To die for.
Meanwhile, Tim stopped home for lunch (I love that), and now I'm kickin' back on a coffee (draw cartoons) break, soon to head back indoors. The goal: wake up Friday to a clean house and empty to-do list.
Life's short. Dream big.
PS: And it really is 3:04 - told you this was a killer day.
