flour less

so there’s this item on neopets called chia flour and what it does is basically, you’re in the battledome against someone else’s pet and you lob it at em and it turns them into a yellow chia. the thing is, the effect doesn’t end when the battle does. like… your pet literally becomes a yellow chia forever. so you could be in there with a really expensive plushie draik or something, a restricted hard-to-get species with a ridiculously expensive color, and suddenly its a chia.

its terrifying, and there have been stories of like, dedicated griefers with millions of neopoints to spend going out of their way to ruin people’s pets. the item has been retired for a while now, so theyre actually in limited supply so people arent really concerned about having chia flour lobbed at their pets anymore…

but it turns out using this illegal neopets site you can just blow 40 bucks on some and really really really really really mess up someone’s day

1) would you say rice is healthier than indian chappaties/roti's? I love the flat breads and eat it all the time but i am curious (2) any differences in nutritional density between frozen and raw veggies/fruits? I can mostly afford frozen fruit but feel like the "real" thing is where the nutrition lies :)

hey doll, it depends! indian rotis are pretty healthy if they’re made traditionally; w pretty much just water and wholemeal flour, and cooked w a little high quality oil. also the flour in india is less processed and healthier than flour found in western countries - that’s why so many non coeliac people are intollerant (but not allergic) to it here. but in IN it’s mosre just a location thing; rice is mostly eaten in the south and roti in the north!

well fresh is always best, however frozen is fine too if the produce is snap frozen (i.e. frozen @ the time of picking) as it locks in the nutrients… i always try to buy fresh, but occasionally do purchase frozen spinach for smoothies, and all my blueberries and raspberries etc. are frozen as fresh are way to exxy xxx

Queen Elizabeth II's Drop Scones for Dwight Eisenhower

In 1960, Queen Elizabeth II sent this recipe to President Dwight Eisenhower along with some tips in her letter:

Though the quantities are for 16 people, when there are fewer, I generally put in less flour and milk, but use the other ingredients as stated.

I have also tried using golden syrup or treacle instead of only sugar and that can be very good, too.

I think the mixture needs a great deal of beating while making, and shouldn’t stand about too long before cooking.


4 teacups flour
4 tablespoons caster sugar
2 teacups milk
2 whole eggs
2 teaspoons bi-carbonate soda
3 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons melted butter


Beat eggs, sugar and about half the milk together, add flour, and mix well together adding remainder of milk as required, also bi-carbonate and cream of tartar, fold in the melted butter.

[“Drop scones” are small thick pancakes, cook them on a heated griddle]

Stepping up on a stool Lily began rummaging around in a cabinet to find everything she needed. The kitchen had seemed empty to her and she had determined now to be the best time to try baking something new. 

Shuffling items around for a minute she located the first ingredient she needed: A bag of flour. She was quick to grab it, holding in in front of herself as she slowly stepped backwards off the stool. Without looking behind her she spun around with the large bag of flour in hand–Right into the Avenger that was standing behind her.

Everything seemed to happen in slow motion as she watched the bag split open, and the flour fly everywhere. In less than an instant, although it had seemed like an eternity to her, the two were covered, almost looking like ghosts.

“Oh no…” Dropping the now-empty bag, she took a cautious step towards the other Servant, her hands raised in front of herself in defense.

“I’m terribly sorry! P-Please, let me clean it up. It’s my fault.” Glancing nervously around the room, she could find no brooms, let alone towels or napkins to try and clean with. “D-Do you need me to find a towel for you?” If anything, she expected that Jeanne would want to at least clean herself off.
