that grill is on fire

“I Had To Be Around Toxic People For Way Too Long” energy cleansing scrub. (Also titled: “Fuck My Abuser” or just “Energy Reset Body Scrub”)

So. I literally had to be around so many toxic people from my hometown this weekend. Including my mother, who literally hugged me during the communion portion of the ceremony and ran crying out of the reception just because I said “not right now” to her giving me a hug and saying hi. 

A lot of my energy shut down as a result. (I can’t really communicate with/sense my spirit companions if that gives you any indication of how badly my energy was injured by all the negative energy and toxicity that came my way.)

BEHOLD. ENERGY RESET SCRUB

I added a lot of ingredients that I associate with cleansing and healing/protection. Modify as needed. 

Ingredients:

  • Sea salt
  • Epsom salt
  • Baking soda
  • Wormwood powder (this is intense, do not use if pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Lots of alternatives to this.)
  • Angelica root (one of my fave protection herbs)
  • Sage
  • Activated charcoal (this costs like $8 at Walmart. It comes in capsules that are really easy to open. Also, it’s really good for your skin. Please do not use random ass charcoal from your fire pit or the grilling aisle.)
  • Coconut oil (or any other carrying oil of your choice)
  • Lemon essential oil (or just plain lemon juice. I happened to have an essential oil on hand that was a blend of lemon, lemongrass, and eucalyptus.)

Mix all of this together. Charge it up however you prefer to charge items. Take a nice hot shower and rub this mix all over your body. (I even put some on my head lol.) As you scrub, think of what you’re cleansing away, what you want to draw out of you and get rid of. Rinse off, and then was your body/hair as you normally would. 

Like I said, it’s an intense scrub for an intense situation. You can always modify it if you want to make this to make it slightly less intense.

You won’t find fires like this burning in open kitchens back in the States, eh?!

Here at a restaurant (whose name I forget, sorry) near Sendai station, they lightly charred our “kajiki” blue marlin, over the flames in this “irori”, or open hearth, as we sat a few feet away, sweating from the heat.

Simply sprinkled with salt and topped with green onion to let the taste of the fish and the char speak for itself… spectacular!!

Another Finnish tradition in the more rural areas is to gather in a Kota Hut. I was obsessed with how perfect these would be back home in the rainy NW and I plan to build one someday as part of my dream cabin. The huts are a year round gathering place to cook on a wood fire and then eat, drink, and talk in the warm shelter. The various tiers of cast iron allowed for a stew to slow cook, coffee to brew, direct grilling, or indirect smoking. A wood fire cooking dream. We enjoyed this dish that included wild salmon, foraged local mushroom salad and homemade rye bread sitting on a caribou hide. Photographed for @airbnb

New Blacks who keep Defending French Montana's "Nappy" comment

1) French is NOT black. African =/= Black. He’s a Moroccan Arab. He’s from North Africa where anti-blackness runs rampant like hell there. Let’s learn basic geography and culture please. Africa is a HUGE continent with more than 50 countries in it. They’re not all filled with black people especially after it was colonized. 

2) He keeps using his Ex-wife and Son as a damn shield because they are Black. Yet he leaves out the part of how he treated her like garbage. But yet she’s his Queen and he brags so much about how much he loves his Queens, right? 

3). He’s been in this country long enough to know that “Nappy” coming from a Non-black person has racist undertones. His ass was here when Don Imus got fired; then Bill O'Reilly just got grilled for mocking a Black woman’s hair (Maxine Waters) a week ago. French ain’t new to this.

4) The amount of stretching, reaching, and self-hatred I’ve seen from ACTUAL Black people defending this idiot is astounding.

5) The girl he insulted didn’t even come at him. All she said was “The fact that French Montana  thinks anyone cares about him…” He went searching his name like an insecure weirdo and decided to respond with all the Nasty ass comments. You know how much French Montana’s slander was on Twitter prior to the incident? There were plenty of Disses coming from other men but his punk ass wouldn’t dare attack or say shit them.

Bealtaine Recipies

Breakfast Ideas -

Irish Porridge with Berry Compote -

(from Irish Cooking by Publications International Ltd.)

This recipe is great with whatever berries are in season near you. I like to use the honey instead of sugar to represent the fruits of our labor as well as the honey the bees make after pollinated the food. Its a very sun representative food to me as well.

Ingredients -  

  • 4 cups plus 1 TBLS divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup half and half ( or cream or dairy substitute)
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar or molasses
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 6 oz fresh blueberries
  • 6 oz fresh blackberries
  • 3 tsp granulated sugar or honey

Steps

  1. Boil the water with a pinch of salt, then sprinkle in the oats and cinnamon and nutmeg as its boiling. Stir until it begins to thicken, then reduce to simmer for 35-40 min. Add in the cream/non-dairy and molasses/brown sugar.
  2. Combine berries and water in small sauce pan, add in sugar or molasses. Bring to a simmer on medium heat. Cook 8 - 9 min or until tender and the berries still hold their shape.
  3. Decide porridge among 4 bowls and top with the berry compote.

Honey Scones - 

Sounds delicious and from the same book as above. Great for Imbolc as well.

Ingredients - 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 TBLS brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 TBLS baking powder
  • 6 TBLS butter, melted
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 TBLS granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup whipping cream
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. While heating line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Combine flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the oats. Whisk the milk, cream, melted butter and egg in a separate bowl. Stir wet ingredients into dry until the dough just comes together.
  3. Turn dough onto a floured surface and pat dough into a ¾ in thick circle. Cut the circle into eight triangles.
  4. Arrange triangles onto the baking sheet and bake for 12 - 15 min or until golden brown. Let cool 15 and serve warm, with butter and honey.

Feast Dishes -

Sides - 

 Here are some side dishes that I thought up or read for your feast. These will be in less recipe format then the ones above.

Savory Strawberry Salad -

Ingredients

  • ½ purple onion
  • 1 container strawberries, rinsed and sliced into ¼ inch slices
  • 6 - 8 roma tomatoes sliced into ¼ inch slices
  • 2 TBLS balsamic vinegar
  • salt to taste
  1. Slice onions into ¼ inch quarter rings. Add to a non-reactive bowl. Add the strawberries and tomatoes.
  2. Add balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt.
  3. Place into the fridge overnight, or the freezer for 1 hour. 
  4. Remove the bowl and let come to room temperature. Serve.

Spring Salad Mix -

Add a fresh made dressing to a bag of salad mix! 

Try these -

  • honey, lime, oilive oil and dill
  • raspberries, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper
  • rice wine vinegar, cilantro, lime, and canola oil
  • lemon, dijon mustard, clove of garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper

Simple Sides -

  • Irish Cheddar and fresh fruit
  • Colcannon
  • Fire Roasted Corn on the cob
  • Fire Roasted Bell Peppers dipped into a creamy dressing (Ranch)
  • Carrots and Celery dipped into hummus
  • Local fresh produce, raw and ready to eat!
  • Red cabbage and sliced apple slaw

Main Course -

  • The main dish should be something that reflects the season, and your celebration. If you are having a bon fire, hot dogs, sausages and other food roasted over the fire are appropriate. 
  • Or fire up the barbecue and grill up some some meat! Carne asada, which is a popular summer meat to grill in SoCal, it is marinated strip steak in lime and other seasonings, and great for this holiday. Also try lime and tequila marinated chicken, grilled salmon, or hamburgers. 
  • Not going to be outside? Try roasting or broiling in the oven. A good beef roast is great, or maybe some broiled fish.
  • Vegatarian? try boca burgers, or other veggie burgers, grilled portabellos with cheese on top, or some seasonal veggies on the grill! I love roasted zucchini on the barbecue or in the broiler.
  • Do what is good to you and appropriate for your diet/nutritional needs and what is in season. Just because the ancient Irish folk ate something at this holiday, it doesn’t mean we can’t eat what we have available or even the modern equivalent of it!

Drinks - 

  • Gewurztraminer with Elderberry Syrup and fresh strawberries and blackberries
  • May Wine - ½ cup of dried sweet woodruff leaves, 1 bottle of Riesling wine, 1 bottle of Sekt (German sparkling wine) or champagne, ¾ cups organic strawberries, chopped. And a pinch of fresh sweet woodruff flowers for garnish
  • Meyer Lemonade infused with lavender and mint
  • Fresh brewed floral tea, such as chamomile, with honey or infused 3 flower sugar, from my other post.

Desserts - I am going to make a whole separate post for Bealtaine desserts!

I hope you enjoyed my post on the foods and recipes I put together for this year’s Beltane!

Summary: Stiles is trying to find Scott and Allison’s new house, but he accidentally knocks on the door of their hot neighbor instead. (On AO3)

(And shout out to @inell for telling me this didn’t suck!)


It’s dark, and Stiles has poor night vision, okay? Scott had given him a thorough description of their new place, but none of those features are really helping him now.

And apparently none of the people in this neighborhood believe in porch lights. So when he knocks on the door that he thinks is red, he’s expecting Scott, or maybe Allison, to answer it.

He’s not expecting a man with immaculate stubble and brooding eyebrows to answer, ethereally backlit by his hallway light. He cocks one of those magnificent eyebrows as he leans on the door that, it turns out, is actually blue. Whoops.

I made a grilled cheese sandwich. While I was making that grilled cheese sandwich, my hair caught on fire but I was too fixated on the cheese melting to care about my hair.

This Japanese woman played Breath of the Wild and put a barrel onto the cooking pot. The barrel then caught fire and when it broke the piece of bird meat fell into the fire and became Yakitori! lol (grilled bird meat)
Her reaction: “Ah, something was inside! I did it? I cooked something!”

Jughead & Reader: Desire

Summary: At Ethel’s pool party, Jughead gets a little… excited when the two of you hang out at the pool. Embarrassed because all of his friends are around, the two of you have to try to find a way to sneak out without anyone noticing. 

NSFW

Requested by: anonymous


Listen to: Undisclosed Desires - Muse


“Tell me again why I’m here,” Jughead said as the two of you walked down the path to Ethel Mugg’s pool house. He was wearing his black swim trunks with a t-shirt and a towel over his shoulder. He wasn’t too excited to be at a pool party with other students from school, but you had your ways of getting him to come. 

You laughed and looked at him. “Because you love me and want to spend time with me.” Jughead raised an eyebrow. “And because I said I’d cook for you if you came.”

“That’s right.” He laughed and kissed your head before you slid open the door and entered the pool house.

One cheeseburger no cheese coming up

When I was a teen and worked at McD’s (usually on grill) there was this girl that would absolutely fly off the handle over anything/nothing all the time. She was tiny, about 16, and probably thought she was a hot-shit princess. I’ll call her Ship. She didn’t just yell and swear, either; she would actually throw things, punch equipment, go into other stations and knock stuff down, etc. It was crazy. I hated working with Ship and Ship HATED me because I constantly pushed her buttons and made her fly off the handle, especially when the owner was around. How? Pointing out her mistakes, politely asking her what an order she entered meant, or just looking at her silently. Seriously. It was almost fun.

One day Ship was in window 2 of the drive through handing out the food. Window one entered “cheeseburger-no cheese.” This is a ‘grill’ order meaning it prints a little slip and you put that slip on the wrapper to show its custom ordered. Now, I know Ship isn’t going to grab anything without that little sticker, and she isn’t smart enough to think about what the order is for.

I smiled and grabbed a hamburger wrapper and made a hamburger and put it up, leaving the little receipt dangling from the machine next to my head as if I hadn’t noticed. Ship is watching me as I make the next order, and the next, muttering to herself, arms crossed, feet tapping, and I can see the pressure building. She’s making little noises, stalking away, coming back as the food pile builds.

Finally she snaps. She stalked over, got inches from my face, and screaming says “WHERES MY CHEESEBURGER!”

I feign innocence. I direct her to the screen (I cleared that order several orders ago of course) and ask what she means. She grabs the receipt and shoves it in my face, triumphant. “THIS CHEESEBURGER! MAKE THIS!!”

Without taking the receipt, I ask what it is. “CHEESEBURGER NO CHEESE!”

“Oh… well what do you call a cheeseburger no cheese?”

She just stared at me dumbly, so I walked over, picked up the hamburger, and showed it to her. She got so angry she punched the backup grill printer off the top of the counter onto the floor (where it broke) and pushed over some other stuff in the grill. I told the owner that night, he pulled the tape, verified she was the one that broke his back up grill printer, and fired her.

Man I hope she’s in jail.

Edit: People keep asking why order a cheeseburger no cheese? My guess is that the person didn’t order that, they ordered a hamburger happy meal and the cashier didn’t know there was a separate button. There also might have been some kind of sale for cheeseburgers or this was the 2 cheeseburger meal, although I’m pretty sure it was only one burger in question. This was 1998-99. I don’t remember the menu and register well enough to know for sure why the cashier did it. I don’t even remember the girls real name!
