Sweater weather is upon us! (Though here in the UK, it’s perpetually sweater weather!). As the days get cooler, I find myself craving a comfortable bowl of warm oatmeal in the mornings, rather than cereal or smoothie bowls. I was playing around with my oatmeal recipe this morning in the kitchen and I think I’ve made apple pie in a bowl here, replete with all my favourite fall flavours.
To make the oatmeal:
Combine 1 cup of milk and ½ cup oats (this is a serving for me, but feel free to adjust according to your preferences!) in a saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 clove, 1 cardamom pod (separate the seeds from the shell and add the seeds into the oats; you can chuck in the shell separately too for more flavour) and ½ a star anise (optional). Grate ½ a red apple into small thin strips, and add that into the saucepan as well, to stew with the oats. Bring the whole mixture to a boil. Sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon. Once it’s boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer, making sure to stir frequently to avoid it sticking in the pan. Once the oats have reached your desired consistency, remove from the pan and serve. I topped mine with the remaining ½ of the apple which I sliced up, as well as some nuts and seeds. This works really well with some raisins thrown in during the cooking process as well!
If I tell you how I feel? Can I fuck...gotta see if that pussy pod before I cuff...
1. Who told you it was okay to approach women like that!?
2. I have a boyfriend
3. Even if I didn’t have one I wouldn’t do shit with you because I don’t fuck lame ass niggas who approach women with mad disrespect. So fuck off.
Sprinkle on or around your preferred method of divination (i.e. tarot cards, runestones, pendulum, scrying mirror, crystal ball) to charge it and enhance its power. Alternately, can be used to dust your hands with before performing divination.
1 Black Couple Candle or 1 Black Figural Break-Up (Divorce) Candle
1 bottle Crossing Oil
1 packet Crossing Sachet Powder
1 packet Crossing Incense Powders
1 packet Hotfoot Powder
1 packet Goofer Dust
1 Bottle containing
9 Pins, 9 Needles, 9 Nails, black dog hair, black cat hair
1 packet Devil’s Shoe Strings Curio
1 packet Devil Pod Curio
1 packet Hyssop Herb
2 White Offertory Candles
This spell is presented in several degrees of severity,
allowing you to choose just how much trouble you
want to make. In addition to the items here, you will need something personal from both parties, such as their hair, footprint-dirt, menstrual blood, semen, photos, business card, or the like. The more intimate the better. In addition, you should symbolically write their full names on two pieces of paper 9 times. Use black ink for the one you want to have get away and red ink for the one you want to stay near you. Use black ink for both, if you want both to get away. Whatever item you use, those things, plus the name-papers, will be referred to as “the couple’s personal items.” Work during the waning of the moon).
Start by maaking the Crossing Incense Powders into cones (use a twist of paper, pack the incense in with your finger, and turn it out of the cone). On the Black Couple Candle carve the couple’s full names with the words BREAK UP between their names. Dress the candle with Crossing Oil and sprinkle it with Crossing Powder. For each of the next seven days burn a portion of the incense and one section of the candle. Pinch the candle out between times, never blow it out. During these 7 days, you will work the spell itself.
The bottle contains 9 Pins, 9 Needles, 9 Rusty Nails, the Hair of a Black Dog, and the Hair of a Black Cat. These are to cause pain, anger, emotional incompatibility, distance, and quarreling between the couple so that they will “fight like cats and dogs” and seek to part from each other. You have 3 types of powders. Each is alleged to produce a certain result. The more you use, the more mischief is believed to result. Hotfoot Powder is to drive someone away. Crossing Powder is to bring about bad luck, trouble, and illness. Goofer Dust is to mess people up seriously, even unto death. Choose 1, 2, or all 3 powders; blend them together if you want.
Mix the couple’s personal items with the powder(s) you have chosen, then put the mix in the bottle with the pins, needles, nails, dog hair, and cat hair; stop up the bottle and bury it under their doorstep. As you do this, pray aloud for their intranquility and break-up in your own words; ask in the name of your God or Saint. If you can’t put it under their doorstep, hide it in a hollow tree where they can’t find it, or carry it to the nearest graveyard and bury it (praying for the death of their relationship), or carry it to a crossroads and throw it into center of the road (praying for them to travel apart from each other), or throw it into running water (praying to have them both carried out of your life).
CLEANING UP: Wrap up any left-over candle wax, incense ashes, and unused materials in a piece of black cloth. Secure it with black thread and tie it. Throw it out at a crossroads or bury it in a graveyard. PURIFICATION AND PROTECTION: Because breaking folks up is an Enemy Trick, you must cleanse yourself and protect from retribution. To take off your sin, prepare a bath by steeping the Hyssop Herb in a pot of boiling rain water or spring water. Light the two white candles, stand between them, and pour the Hyssop bath over your head while reciting the 51st Psalm (“Cleanse me with Hyssop; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow”). For protection, drive the 9 Devil’s Shoe Strings into the dirt across the path to your door-step to tangle up anyone who may try to retaliate and cross you. Put the Devil Pods outside or behind your front and back doors to repel any evil work that may be directed toward you.
I’m back once again with my masterpost of free prehistoric documentaries because it’s time for an update! I was able to find several more shows while browsing around and I’ve added them in. Please let me know if any of the links don’t work and feel free to suggest more programs I should try and find c:
An immersion blender is handy for pureeing this soup. Cardamon, allspice, anise, sherry, thyme, cumin, and bay leaf create a rich blended flavor when melded together in your slow cooker. Make this soup for comfort on a chilly winter night, with leftovers for lunch the next day.
1 pound green split peas 6 allspice 3 cardamom pods 1 star anise 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup finely chopped carrot 7 cups water ¼ cup fresh orange juice ¼ cup dry sherry 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground cumin 3 garlic cloves, chopped 1 ham hock (about 1⁄2 pound) 1 bay leaf 15 ounces smoked pork chops, trimmed and diced (about 2 cups) 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1. Sort and wash peas; place in a large Dutch oven.
2. Place allspice, cardamom pods, and star anise on a double layer of cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together; tie securely, and place in inner pot of a 6-quart Instant Pot. Add peas, onion, and next 11 ingredients (through bay leaf). Close and lock the lid of the Instant Pot. Turn the steam release handle to “Venting” position. Press [Slow Cook], and use [Adjust] to select “Less” mode. Press [-] or [+] to choose 5 hours cook time.
3. When time is up, remove lid. Turn cooker off. Add diced pork. Close and lock the lid of the Instant Pot. Turn the steam release handle to “Venting” position. Press [SlowCook], and use [Adjust] to select “Less” mode. Press [-] or [+] to choose 3 hours cook time. Cook additional time, if necessary, until peas and pork are tender.
4. Remove lid. Discard bay leaf, spice bag, and ham hock. Place half of soup mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Return puréed mixture to remaining soup in cooker. Stir in orange rind before serving.
Ok. My pod theories.
1). Kara’s Mum (if we’re going with the possibility that they were able to somehow protect Argo City when Krypton exploded ala some of the comic incarnations)
3). Alien space baby that they give to a rando science family to raise, like Clark did with Kara.
4). AU!Kara (or Powergirl). (Again from other DC comic world’s where Kara ZorL is Powergirl)
5). Superboy (meh)
6). Not a person at all but some kind of alien tech sent to help the earthbound Kryptonians in some way. (Or to give her a way to save Argo City, which survives in the Earth2 incarnation of the comics… see previous Powergirl/Au/Alura theory)
7). It’s just full of Pink KRYPTONITE and Kara is suddenly SuperGay.
There are so many great details to this set, we should probably go through them one by one.
First: the escape pod!
On the left we have the pod that’s in Titus’ room and the right, the escape pod used by Raven. They look pretty similar in shape with a few slight differences. Raven says this about her escape pod in 1.02 “Earth Skills”:
They must have found this thing when they salvaged Mir-3 in twenty one oh two. You want me to get a hundred-and-thirty-year-old escape pod ready to stand up to the inferno of re-entry in nine days?
It’s not too outlandish to guess that both the escape pods are probably similar in age, but maybe from different stations because of their slight differences.
so i saw some people who are still a bit confused on how to watch the apple music festival, so here’s some help! (if you are using an iphone/pod/pad)
1. click on the itunes store app
2. on the main screen (tap “music” in the bottom left corner if your app opens up in the search or something) and tap on the banner on the top of the screen that says music festival (the first one to come up right now is an add for a mixtape so just swipe to the next one)
3. once there just tap on the video under “watch live now”, its the first one, and bam! you’re in
consult the pictures if you’re still having any issues. 1d will be performing tomorrow around 9 pm BST (4 pm EST), happy watching! :)
